Tell me about it.

I'll be up until 3/4 in the morning waiting for pick #58 for the 4th Pats pick.

If there wasn't a load of stuff going on during the draft on the website i'll be on then i'd be asleep.

Finally got around to using my Twitter, I have seen so much information from people ranging from Rich Eisen, PFT, the Patriots site, my insider guy from the Pats and many others.

Eisen says the Skins have been in contact with the Rams about Sanchez.

And PFT says that should the Rams take Sanchez, the Jets want Bulger.

I normally don't sympathise with people with money too much, but imagine being Matthew Stafford, suddenly being set for life in a city where the team is terrible and the city is having an horrendous time. You'd better keep your head down and be good, fast.

That's not all - apparently the jury is out on him with a lot of Lions fans who think they have wasted their pick. I guess it's the same for a lot of rookie QB's.

From what I've seen of him on the news though he seems quite level headed and is just focussed on showing the fans what he can do. Good luck to him - I guess he can't lead them to a worse record!

Here is my final mock draft.

Posted it elsewhere(the comments are aimed at Patriot fans), but wanted to put it here so you can all see it. In quote tags so you can view it properly. If anyone spots an obvious player missing, then tell me and i'll change it


Right, I have no trades in this, so in all likeliness, it will be wrong. And I forgot to enter the PFW one

1. Detroit - Matthew Stafford (I wonder if this is right)
2. St. Louis - Jason Smith
3. KC - Tyson Jackson
4. Seattle - Mark Sanchez
5. Cleveland - Aaron Curry
6. Cincinnati - Eugene Monroe
7. Oakland - Jeremy Maclin
8. Jacksonville - Michael Crabtree
9. Green Bay - Brian Orakpo
10. San Fran - Andre Smith
11. Buffalo - Michael Oher
12. Denver - B.J. Raji
13. Washington - Robert Ayers
14. New Orleans - Michael Jenkins
15. Houston - Vontae Davis (originally Clay Matthews)
16. San Diego - Rey Maualuga
17. New York Jets - Percy Harvin
18. Denver - Brian Cushing
19. Tampa Bay - Josh Freeman
20. Detroit - Aaron Maybin
21. Philadelphia - Knowshon Moreno
22. Minnesota - Eben Britton
23. New England - Everette Brown
24. Atlanta - Peria Jerry
25. Miami - Larry English
26. Baltimore - Darrius Heyward-Bey
27. Indianapolis - James Laurinaitis
28. Buffalo - Clay Matthews
29. New York Giants - Hakeem Nicks
30. Tennessee Titans - Darius Butler
31. Arizona Cardinals - Chris "Beanie" Wells
32. Pittsburgh Steelers - William Beatty

Lots of random positions here. Didn't look at any other mocks so there are probably some good players available.

For what its worth, I see Matthews at #15, but had to move him to fit Vontae Davis in as I missed him out.

Brown, Barwin, Alphonso Smith and others are still available

Very disapointed the Seahawks passed on Crabtree.

Edenbridge Eagle In Exile 26-04-2009 12:25 AM

Maclin at 19 wooohooo! :lux:

Strathclyde Eagle 26-04-2009 12:37 AM

The Raiders take a WR at 7 and don't take either Crabtree or Maclin. And people wonder why they stink every year.

Sanchez to the Jets. Wonderful. :D

Strathclyde Eagle 26-04-2009 12:37 AM

P.S. Good picks for the Broncos and Redskins at 12/13.

pauldrulez 26-04-2009 12:48 AM

McDaniels and that idiot Mangini have made the worst picks of this draft. A center at 21?

Al Davis is a senile out bat.

Here comes the Dolphins. Who take Vontae Davis.

Why cant the Pats take Maualuga or Brown who I wanted us to trade up to 9 to get. He is sitting here Bill, take him.

Strathclyde Eagle 26-04-2009 12:48 AM

Vontae Davis, meant to be pretty good supposedly. Happy with that at 25.

pauldrulez 26-04-2009 01:02 AM

Pats have 4 2nds and 4 3rds.


Everette Brown and Rey Maualuga are sitting there, get one Belichick, a pass-rusher or a freak. One or the other

Vince Hilaire's Afro 26-04-2009 01:39 AM

This is the first time I've seen this on TV. Very disappointed to hear people in the crowd booing these young players before they've even touched the ball for their new team.

I realise some of this is because of inter-club rivalry, but the reaction of some of the players' own fans is pretty unpalatable. There was a classic shot of a disgusted Jets fan in the crowd when Sanchez's draft was announced.

pauldrulez 26-04-2009 01:46 AM

I hate this.

Chung ahead of Brown or Maualuga.

Unless we have Jason Taylor or a Peppers deal in the bag. Sanchez, Pennington and Edwards are going to have all day in the pocket as Pierre Woods attempts to get to a QB.

Big-time down on this pick.

pauldrulez 26-04-2009 02:23 AM

Well, we made one pick I like out of our first 3.

Darius Butler, CB. I wanted him at 23.

We draft Ron Brace before him. So, bye Vince Wilfork at the end of the year.

Everette Brown dropping like a stone however. But he's now been taken.

Tempted to stay up and wait for 58 and see if we draft someone who is worthwhile.

If we don't have Peppers or Taylor, I fear for this defense.

2. The 2 QBs go at #4 and #9 in the draft. That is where a second team trades up ahead of the Niners to get Sanchez (Jets or Broncos) :(

3. Pat White goes in the 2nd round to the Patriots. :confused:

4. Crabtree falls below Maclin. :(

5. 7 Offensive Linemen go in the first round. :confused:

6. A team in the NFC selects in the first round :)

7. The Patriots select at least one player in the first 7 rounds. ;)

8 A running back is selected in the first 250 players :)

9 I don't attend college on the Monday after the Draft. Not through tiredness, just because I can't be arsed. Bit like today. :)

Find the serious predictions.

Well, I called the Jackson pick on Weds. Apart from that :(

pauldrulez 26-04-2009 02:28 AM

Oh, Bollocks.

Congratulations to the Dolphins.

You got one hell of a player for the Wildcat.

You can now add him motioning in and out of the wildcat for the play.

Will be something nice to see

pauldrulez 26-04-2009 02:51 AM

Raiders rivalling the Patriots and Broncos for worst Drafting with better players around.

Dolphins took 2 players I wanted.

Panthers took Everette Brown.

The one player I was after (Barwin) has gone to the Texans but at least we got the one guy I liked (Butler).

Hedgehog 26-04-2009 02:57 AM

pauldrules.... who is this "we" you speak of?

Edenbridge Eagle In Exile 26-04-2009 03:05 AM

LeSean McCoy !!!!!!!!!! RB we needed!:)

pauldrulez 26-04-2009 03:13 AM

McCoy wont last in the NFL.

We is the Patriots. Don't mess with me, i've been up going on 48 hours and i've just finished my last bottle of alcohol so now have to go 4 picks without any.

I'm tempted to walk down the street and blow someones head off unless we draft someone useful with this pick.
