NFL Draft 2011: How I Would Do It

The NFL Draft begins tonight and the first round is where teams like to spend their money. There is sure to be less wheeling and dealing this year than in years past as teams have really been putting in the time for the draft as they haven’t been able to work on free agency. Everyone has a big board but I am going to sure up everyone in the first round with players they need based on the BCSOM perspective. However I will show you who the experts say they should take versus who I think they should take. Let’s be clear, I am no expert, just a fan who sometimes crosses the line of fanatic. But I do have a sense of football. I have years of playing and coaching experience on every level possible to prove it.

whats always the pitts iz that half of these players in the 1st round will be busts.............i cant believe that nick
fairley is low, prince amukamara is low, and mark ingram is low........but like the past, the teams that pass them up
will regret it..........a.j. green and julio jones will be rookie stars make no mistake ( unless injuries occur )...............
and i will say again that blaine gabbert will be better than cam newton.....jake locker is tough but i think he took
too many beatings in washington..................also i think patrick peterson, mike pouncey, and dequan bowers will
be sleepers..................but then again..............its the NFL.......and anything iz possible.............................................
..............it just depends on the commitment and heart that they have...................and the bad luck injuries..............
.....cause some are just cursed with it........................like my spazzn brain......HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.......

........................................all im saying iz just remember how they are when they arnt the
center of attention..............................................................................................................................
.......................when the lakers start to drop in a couple of seasons, you will once again see
kobes true side again.........sure they act all innocent when they win, but how are they when they
dont get their way ?........................THATS RIGHT ! THEY WAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lIf San Fransico get Blaine Gabbert, look for Patrick Peterson to be rocking that star.

April 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDa Smoking Ace

I guess I'll just have to wait until mini-camp and training camp to see what the big deal is about Blaine Gabbert, because I have seen nothing to make me think top QB.

April 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKenny

go ahead and dis him now kenny......gabbert will lead jacksonville to the playoffs this season......
and all you fans hypn cam newton will watch him take carolina nowhere............and also i cant
believe that no one has confidence in ryan mallett.......just cause he smoked weed ?.......heck, my
friend who vacationed in florida years ago told me he couldnt believe how much weed warren
sapp and edgerrin james smoked and it didnt stop their playing.........and hes a family member of
theirs............half the players right now smoke it............give me a break.........................................
........but i guess its like keyshawn johnson said, "its better to steel than smoke"...and this is coming
from an ego bullshitt artist who smokes himself and had his grades at usc done for him..................
...how quick did the media biast forget about that ?..........i just cant wait for the season to get underway
just so the world will see how big of a bust newton will be............christian ponder will be a bust..........
............mark my words.....ryan mallett will have a better season than critics give him credit...and so
will blaine gabbert.......................................................................................................................................
...................................................................................................................................................................
