if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yeah the Patriots are just clamoring for an interior offensive lineman. After all they have Thuney and Mason as starters at guard with Jonathan Cooper and Ted Karras as back-ups and have a very good center in David Andrews. What the Patriots need is an offensive tackle because Sebastian Vollmer ain't getting any younger and hasn't really been fully healthy the last two seasons. If there's a great prospect at OT at the end of the first round the Patriots should take him. You're out of your tree if you think the Patriot's greatest need is an interior offensive lineman.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.
2011 NFL Draft Stock Up: Senior Bowl Day 3 Practice
James Carpenter, OT/G, Alabama
James Carpenter has looked better than expected at the Senior Bowl, showing improved footwork during the practices.
Rodney Hudson, G, Florida State
Rodney Hudson didn't stand a chance against Phil Taylor - 50 pounds separate the two - but looked pretty good otherwise during Wednesday's practice.
Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
Colin Kaepernick has been the most impressive quarterback at the Senior Bowl. He's not ready to play coming out of the Pistol offense, but he can make every throw and has a ton of upside.
Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
I thought Ryan Kerrigan was better today. He looked good standing up, and he beat Nate Solder during live action.
Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii
As forum member Mycarman called him, "The Hawaiian Salsa Guy," Greg Salas really showed off his great hands during Senior Bowl practice. He's solidified his status as a Round 3-4 slot receiver.
Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
I don't think Nate Solder has been impressive at the Senior Bowl. But he gets a "stock up" because Mike Mayock keeps talking about Solder being the next Tony Boselli. Hopefully that's the pre-Texans Boselli.
Danny Watkins, G, Baylor
Danny Watkins would be a high second-round pick if he weren't 27 years old. He looks great. A team ready to win now may take him in the third round.
2011 NFL Draft Stock Down: Senior Bowl Day 2 Practice
Allen Bailey, DE/DT, Miami
Allen Bailey has been struggling in one-on-one matchups all week. He couldn't get by Derek Sherrod, which is understandable. But then Bailey looked helpless against James Carpenter, a mid-round prospect. Something's wrong here.
Jeremy Beal, DE, Oklahoma
Another poor day for Jeremy Beal. He didn't look right standing up and has been ineffective in the one-on-one drills all week.
Kris O'Dowd, C, USC
Kris O'Dowd just doesn't look good. He's been overmatched in nearly every one-on-one drill this week.
Courtney Smith, WR, Southern Alabama
As GameCenter member Taton would put it, "Come on C. Smith quit incomplete!!!! How many pass drop could be catch!!!!" Translation: Courtney Smith continued to drop passes Wednesday.
