The NFL draft begins tonight at 8 PM EST. As he does "every year" Papa Voo will be both hosting and covering the draft for us.

Feel free to chime in with questions or thoughts as we go along.

There is still plenty of questions? Will Carolina take Cam Newton #1? Will this be "the year of the trade"? Who moves up, who moves down -- hard to tell as the teams themselves have been lying about their intentions for weeks now.

As always my thanks to Papa Voo for the time, energy and effort he puts into this. We couldn't possibly even begin to cover the draft as well as "we" do without his contributions.

Pete Prisco's Mock

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/fullnflmockdraft-PetePrisco

 

Mike Maycock, NFL Draft guru, has never completed a mock draft until this year.

http://www.nfl.com/draft/2011/mock-drafts/mike-mayock/60103?module=HP_cp2

 

Mike Maycock is predicting a rather unique draft due to the circumsntances surrounding the NFL.  His quote about this weekend's draft.

"Maycock believes that due to the uncertainty of the NFL, the lack of a free agency period normally held prior to the draft and no ability to sign undrafted free agents, will lead to the most draft day trades in the history of the draft."

Okay, this looks to be the year of many teams needing starting QBs, but there may not be any true franchise QBs in this draft class, except for maybe a hidden gem like Tom Brady from many years ago. 

Let's get the first question out there.....if you are the Carolina Panthers, do you take Cam Newton with the No. 1 overall pick?

The "fascinating" selection of the First Round revolves around the "best athlete" in the First Round.....Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU.   The current positioning looks as though that Peterson could slide down the board as far as the No. 6 position with Cleveland.  With this slide, we could hear the phones ringing as he slides down each position, it is being reported that down in Dallas, Jerry Jones is just frothing at the mouth to get to a pick to select Peterson. 

I think teams would be stupid to draft for need and let this guy slip by.

Panthers are shitty at almost all positions. They might as well try to improve at the QB position. Jimmy Clausen is a piece of shit. I say they take Newton with the number one.

I think it boils down to if Newton is a franchise QB.  If he is not thought of in that respect, then I go defense and get a stud who is not as risky as Newton.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Dallas trade down from # 9 and pick up an extra 2nd and/or 3rd round pick. Most figure that the Cowboys will finally start rebuilding their O-line and that the best 2 OL prospects ( Tyron Smith from USC and Anthony Castonzo ) will be available later on in the 1st round. I also would not be surprised to see Dallas try to add another 1st round pick and select CB Prince Amukamara from Arkansas.

I posted this in another thread but here's a chart from Pro Football Weekly on which round they think each player should get picked.

I don't know if he's the answer and I mean if you are taking someone number one they should be "the answer" (or you should at least believe that) Kind of odd to have the #1 and be in a no-win situation.

I think he has better skills than Vince Young, but I am unsure of how well he will adapt to the NFL.   I think the question marks outweigh the positive aspects when associated with the overall No. 1 pick.

I'm going to be highly disappointed if the Buffalo Bills don't draft Von Miller with the 3rd pick. We need to bolster our pass rush, which Miller will definitely do. Plus, Miller can drop back into coverage when need be.

The Panthers are going to take Cam Newton and fuck up big time...the only positive with taking him is IMO they will suck again so bad next year, they still could have a shot at getting Luck in the 2012 draft.

BTW, NFL network is showing an interview Deion did with Cam. Two things stand out. One, if the cameras weren't on, I'm fairly certain Primetime would have dropped to his knees and just gave Newton the blowjob of his life. Two, Newton just said one of the dumbest things I've ever heard from an athlete. Talking about Peyton Manning and Brady, he said, and I quote, because I just rewound the DVR to make sure I got exactly what he said:

"Two people they always talk about, as far as preparing for each game, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, you have to respect them, but one thing that I always look at, and no offense to these guys or those guys is that's not god-given..preparation is not God given.."

No shit dumbass...God given talent has never won a single NFL game, PREPARATION ALWAYS overcomes talent...always...

I wonder if some of these picks get traded next week. Example. Arizona makes deal for Kolb. Arizona drafts whoever Philly wants. Trade announced next week.

Carolina has been on the clock since week ten last year and I don't think they're sure who to take.
