    It starts today, anyone interested?

    Here's the latest mock draft via Walter football.

    WalterFootball.com: 2011 NFL Mock Draft

    It has my Broncos taking Von Miller. ESPN says we'll take Marcell Darius. I'm not sold on Darius I would much rather take the best player available and that's Patrick Petersen. The Broncos have good DB's so it's unlikely. I just feel like when you have picks 1-7 you should take the best player available, save the rest of the picks for drafting need.

    P.S. Carolina is going to regret taking $cam #1. 80% of what he did in college he wont be able to do in the pros.

    not really going to follow a thing about the draft. i won't care until the season starts. have always been that way. the off season is there for a reason. for me to forget about that sport as others are going one such as soccer, NHL playoffs and baseball. although since the pirates season was over before the penguins season i guess i just have EPL and MLS till fall time. haha.

    I'm a huge Carolina Panthers fan, and last season was so hard to watch. Honestly, I hope we take Newton, only because it will bring attention to our team and sell tickets. I don't believe for a minute he deserves to go #1 or that he is a franchise quarterback, and even if he is he wont be able to do that in Carolina, but I do have faith in whoever we pick. It would be nice to have the spotlight for a while.

    Broncos fan? Knowing Fox (Panthers coach last 8 years), he will take a lineman or a linebacker. Wants that defense as the anchor of the team.

    I wasn't too excited about the Fox hire. On paper it doesn't sound good when your team has the 2nd pick and you hire a coach that just got fired by the team with the 1st pick. I know there were extenuating circumstances but still. A lot of the Broncos personnel decisions over the past couple of years have had me scratching my head.

    Last year drafting Tebow in the 1st round when it's likely he would have been there in the second if you really wanted him. Passing on Dez Bryant for Demaryius Thomas, someone I barely new prior to him being drafted. Like I said if we really wanted him we could have drafted him later. Moving up to draft a corner that a year later we would cut.

    ....and so on....

    Yeah, with Broncos we have a good attack with the likes of Eddie Royal but we're weak as piss at the back.

    Edit:

    Regarding the head coach situation, there was a lot of other coaches I would of gone for, rumours were it we could of took the Florida Gators coach because of us drafting Tebow. At the end of the day with the right D line I'm prepared to give him a shot this year. At least he doesn't shout, insult and abuse our own players like McDouchebag did.

    Fox wasn't a bad coach. Don't think that whatsoever. He took us from 1-15 to the Super Bowl in 2 years. He brought stability, defense, and WINNING to Carolina. He may be more boring, but he is a good coach. So don't judge him on the 2-14, judge him on what he did when he came to Carolina.

    People say Mourinho is boring but he gets them winning. I'll take winning ugly if it means we do well.

    Fox is a good coach like I said "on paper" it doesn't sound to good. I honestly believe a key factor to him getting the job was that he gave Elway assurances that he wouldn't abandon the Tebow project. While other coaches wouldn't make that guarantee. That doesn't mean that it won't work out, I hope it does.

    We have enough offensive weapons to make it to the playoffs we just need to bring some steel to that D-line. Getting Elvis back will help, if we draft Von Miller which seems to be the prevailing opinion at the moment (even now on ESPN) then we'll have a deadly pass rush. He's not much of a run stopper but he can improve that.

    For USC it's a pretty weak draft. The mock draft has Havili going in the 6th round? He's going to be the steal of the draft. I can't count the amount of times he saved our ass. His character has always been in question that must be the reason why he's so low. That and FB's don't typically get drafted high.



    1st


    13: Detroit Lions: Tyron Smith, OT, USC


    3rd

    70: Cleveland Browns: Jurrell Casey, DT, USC

    89: San Diego Chargers: Shareece Wright, CB, USC


    4th

    113: Oakland Raiders: Jordan Cameron, TE, USC


    5th


    142: Tennessee Titans: Kris O'Dowd, C, USC


    6th

    173: Seattle Seahawks: Stanley Havili, FB, USC


    7th

    226: New Orleans Saints: Ronald Johnson, WR, USC

    To be fair, we gave away a shitload of yards on the running game so I think Von can stop that.

    He's more of a pass rusher but with Fox's system he's gonna be active on the run game.

    If Gabbert goes to Minnesota that's the steal of the draft.

    ‎ If you told me 3 months ago that Jake Locker would be selected in the draft before Nick Fairley, I would've kicked you in the face.

    That's two years in a row QB's that came back for their senior season didn't really have their draft stock effected. I hope Matt Barkley is watching this.
