FLYMOCK 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen, the FLY, our very own Jason Anderson, is back. He dropped in for a quality 1st round mock, and rumor has it he may be making an appearance at Sickness HQ for the draft festivities. We won’t hold our breath.  But we await the buzzzzzzz….

_____

It’s probably foolish to do my final mock now, with four days left before the draft.  However, I’m told that most of the information we will receive this week is in fact disinformation, so it’s not going to be that helpful.  More importantly, I really need to work, so I’m going all in right now and let the chips fall where they may regardless of what else happens this week.  Some of these picks are, admittedly, simply what I want to happen, but so be it.  Sometimes that happens in the real world too.  Cam Newton, I’m not a believer, and neither is Jerry Richardson . . . 

So what? Doesn't mean I can't mock draft.

_____
1.      Carolina Panthers:  Marcel Dareus – There is news today that Steve Smith has cleared out his locker and is demanding a trade which convinces me of what I’ve believed all along – the Panthers are not going offense.
__
2.      Denver Broncos:  Von Miller – Stunned at losing out on Dareus, the Broncos go with another sure fire, front seven pick.
__
3.      Buffalo Bills:  Cam Newton -  Tools.  How’s Cam’s athleticism going to work for him when the field is a skating rink in December?
__
4.      Cincinnati Bengals:  A.J. Green – Probably not enough to get Carson back, but maybe enough to entice someone else.
__
5.      Arizona Cardinals:  Robert Quinn – It’s going to be defense and the front seven is pressing a little harder than the back 7 in Arizona.
__
6.      Cleveland Browns:  Nick Fairley – First minor steal of the draft, which the Bills will regret very soon because they need this guy badly.
__
7.      San Francisco 49ers:  Patrick Peterson – Seriously, says Harbaugh, this guy fell all the way to seven. Wow.
__
8.      Tennessee Titans:  Jake Locker – Before Gabbert.  You heard here first.  (Editor’s note: No they didn’t.)
__
9.      Dallas Cowboys:  Tyron Smith – See Romo’s shoulder.
__
10.    Washington Redskins:  Julio Jones – A very old Santana Moss and, and, and Anthony Armstrong. Help, please.
__
11.     Houston Texans:  Prince Amukamura – Does any team have a more pressing need?
__
12.     Minnesota Vikings:  Blaine Gabbert – Cool, we needed a good quarterback.
__
13.     Detroit Lions:  Jimmy Smith – Seems like a Schwartz kind of guy to me.
__
14.     St. Louis Rams:   J.J. Watt – This seems to me to be the worst spot to pick in the draft, but not a bad pick for the Rams.
__
15.     Miami Dolphins:  Ryan Mallet – With 3 qbs gone already, they can’t gamble on the second round.
__
16.     Jacksonville Jaguars:  Ryan Kerrigan – And that makes 435 defensive line guys taken by the Jaguars in the first round in the last decade.
__
17.     New England Patriots:  Gabe Carimi – Billy likes his nastiness on the o-line.
__
18.     San DiegoChargers:  Cameron Jordan – They luck out and get the guy they wanted all along.
__
19.     New York Giants:  Anthony Costanzo – Has to be O-line.
__
20.    Tampa Bay Bucs: Da’Quan Bowners – I really have no idea what the Bucs are going to do.  This makes sense.  Sort of.
__
21.     Kansas City Chiefs:  Corey Liguet – Everyone seems to think they need a defensive tackle.  I’ll bite.
__
22.     Indianapolis Colts:   Nate Solder – This seems obvious to me.
__
23.     Philadelphia Eagles:  Akeem Ayers – I don’t care what anyone says.  The Eagles have not had a decent linebacker since I can’t remember when.
__
24.     New Orleans Saints:  Mark Ingram – To me, this is like the Dez Bryant pick last year.  If you are not a Saints fan, you sit there asking yourself, how did this happen?
__
25.     Seattle Seahawks:  Anthony Dalton – Stupid pick, but they are going to do it.  Carroll should take Jurrel Casey and he knows it.  Oh well.
__
26.     Baltimore Ravens:  Muhammed Wilkerson – Why not.  They have Ngota and that beast from Alabama but, again, why the hell not.
__
27.     Atlanta Falcons:  Cameron Heyward – Abraham is no spring chicken.
__
28.    New England Patriots:  Phil Taylor – He can take his time healing his foot behind Vince Wilfork.
__
29.    Chicago Bears:  Derrek Sherrod – There is literally no other choice for them here.
__
30.    New York Jets:  Justin Houston – In order to replace the huge hole left by Vernon Gholston of course.. . .
__
31.    Pittsburgh Steelers:  Mike Pouncey – Its what everyone wants to happen so let it be so.
__
32.    Green Bay Packers:  Danny Watkins – Rodgers will eventually need an offensive line when he starts slowing down.
