GCobb.com Mock Draft #7

The consensus is at this present time that Cam Newton will be the first pick in the draft. His upside is so out of this world that the Panthers can’t draft somebody else and be left wondering, what if.Alabama’s Marcell Dareus is expected to go second to the Denver Broncos.

The Bills need a franchise quarterback, so they’re expected to grab Blaine Gabbert. The guy has athletic ability close to that of Newton which says a lot.Julio Jones has taken the place of A.J. Green as the best receiver in the draft. We knew he was bigger and stronger, but he’s shown himself to be much faster. He gets the “Beast Award” for looking a like a man amongst boys.

Von Miller is considered a sure thing because of his ability, attitude, consistency during college career and work ethic. UNC’s Robert Quinn was falling after the NFL Combine, but he regained his momentum after his outstanding Pro Day performance.

Patrick Peterson may wind up being the steal of this draft. Many of the scouts say that Peterson is the safest pick in this draft.
Nick Fairley has an amazing upside, but the fact that he only performed at this level for one full season. Oh boy but did you see how well he played in the one season.

Tyron Smith convinced the Cowboys at his Pro Day that he was the man they wanted. The Skins would love to draft a quarterback, but after Newton and Gabbert there’s not a quarterback in this draft, who rates high enough to select at the 10 spot.

As for the Eagles, I have them grabbing Wisconsin’s Gabe Carimi with this pick. He’s got the skills to play either guard or tackle. He’s big, physical and could step in right away as a starter. I see them using him at guard in his first season. He can always move outside if needed.

The birds will trade up with New England to grab someone they covet.

G, as for the safest pick in the draft, remember Robert Gallery? He was the safest pick. How did that work out?

April 13, 2011 1:26 pm

@Paulman….. Eagles will not and I repeat will not get another DE in this years draft in the first RD…….. Too much was invested in Graham and the Eagles are going to address the issue to the front line on the offensive side of things…… Gabe Camiri is better suited in this offense…….. Bowers will hit the board early…….. I think the Jags will get him…..

April 13, 2011 1:29 pm

The NFL is a league of wise tails and folklore’s and drafting cam newton is a bad idea cause he’s black. Black QB’s dont win championships.

Im not a racist but its true. Whats the chance of him being the first to win a superbowl? Pathers are gonna stink next year too so why draft a QB just cause? draft the best playmaker on board (Peterson) and look to the future for a QB that is NFL ready… And white of course.

April 13, 2011 1:40 pm

To Jroc

Remember I have the comment under #5 Cardinals (to watch for a trade with the Eagles) … It will involve Kolb and Bowers for CB Peterson and a 3rd Rd Pick from the Cardinals, I just can’t talk it in depth with no CBA in place since the NFL Powers to be have been checking up on G-Man’s site

April 13, 2011 1:51 pm

Also Jroc,
Remeber that Grahams contribution for 2011 is definitely up in the air,
After having major knee injury and surgery in mid Dec, he won’t be close to 100% until late October at best, and there is a real possibility that he could start the Season on the PUP List based on how his rehab is going…
This leaves at DE Cole, Parker, Tapp, the Canadien Hunt and 2 unproven,inknowns in Teo and Sapp who many observors have stated that they are just simply are not NFL material… Ooh and I forgot Abriami…
The DE Position is every bit as weak as the CB position is in my opinion and maybe even in worse shape as far as impact,qualitydepth..

April 13, 2011 4:07 pm

I still don’t see the Bills taking a QB with the 3rd pick…not sure who they do take, but why waste a #3 pick on someone who is only valued high because of how weak the rest of his position is. On a side note, I could give a crap about the Bills, but for some reason I keep seeing this and it makes not sense to me.

I can see the Birds going DE, even though I don’t really want them to. If Bowers or another “stud” DE is available is there that the FO values higher than OT, then prepare for the DE.

As for Graham’s recovery from knee surgery, he should be physically fine by August. It’s the mental part that’s the hardest. Wes Welker was practicing with the team after 4 months…granted that he’s a slight bit leaner than graham.

April 13, 2011 4:19 pm

Bills have one of the Weakest Pass Rushes in the NFL and really need help
in that area.. I think they (Bills FO and Coaches) are pretty happy with QB Fitzpatick and the young WR/RB’s that they have for the short-term,
LB Von MIller may be along with LSU Petersen the best pure athletes in this entire draft.. Remember the BIlls play the Patriots,Jets and Dolphins twice each year and you have to get pressure on the QB in today’s game..
I would not compare the rehab time of Wes Welker who has the heart and work-ethic of a Lion and yes Welker did recover remarkedly quick from his SUrgery and he still wasn’t the same player.. I expect B Graham to open up the Season on the PUP list and not eligible to be active after week #5 which is probably in his and the Eagles best interest..

April 13, 2011 4:57 pm

One other point Jroc about OL Carimi
Carimi is not built for this Eagle Offense, Wisonsin is a power Running Team/program that does not pass very often. Carimi is a better fit for the Chiefs/Giants who rely much more on running the ball than the Eagles do.. An Eagle OLineman has to be very athletic,quick on their feet which is not neccessarity CArimi’s strength .. Carimi I think will become a very good RT or even a Guard at the NFL Level for a right-handed QB led Team,
Playing for the Eagles at RT with a left-handed QB in VIck and protecting his blind side is probably not a wise decision with Carimi at this time.
For this Eagles Offensive system OT’s T Smith, A Contanzo,N Solder would all be better fits but will most likley be off the Board.
Players like Sherrod ,D Love, O Franklin, J Carpenter, J Barksdale, M Gilbert who are probably all good fits for the Eagles system but are not highly-graded enough,to be chosen with the #23 Overall Pick

April 13, 2011 6:33 pm

P-man, I get what you’re saying about Welker having great work ethic, but then does Graham not have a good/great work-ethic? I honestly don’t know. All I know is that I’m going through the same thing that Graham did to his knee and I’m ahead of schedule without the benefits of the great training staff he had (until a few weeks ago when the lockout started).

April 13, 2011 8:05 pm

Just because Graham might be injured for the 1st half of the season, doesn’t mean the Eagles will draft a DE…… Ever heard of a stopgap? The Eagles will be more inclined to sign a DE for 1 year rather than use another high pick on one just to fill in for a year.

April 13, 2011 8:22 pm

How long does everyone think that J Parker will play.. Graham is not an everydown player at this stage of his career regardless of his knee injury,
either is D Tapp and recent signee P Hunt… You need about 4-5 Good DE’s in today’s pass-happy NFL
Casper, glad to hear that your re-habbing well and on schedule, I am not sure what lime of work you fo , but Graham must be able to fight off 330 OL and run and change directions in an instant so I am sure his recovery program and the strength needed in his knees is different than you and I …

April 13, 2011 9:27 pm

Do you think that the Eagles think they spent a 1st round pick on someone that they believe is not a every down player? Do you think they gave up on him already? Do you think that they will be so quick to give up on Graham and use another 1st rounder on a DE after they spent one last year, thinking that they will get a every down DE this time around?

April 13, 2011 11:42 pm

While I think I would definitely be underwhelmed with the addition of another DE, I do agree that IF there is a “stud” talent that falls to the Iggles at 23 (barring any move up), then I could see them taking that position before OT, DT, or CB. They at least have 3 DT’s with Laws as a marginal 4 (though he did have some decent games here and there). But Juqua only has a short amount of time left in this league, Graham is coming off injury (though I think he’ll be ready sooner than later), Trent Cole is getting tired of being the only good DE, and Abiramiri and Teo just don’t cut it.

April 15, 2011 9:41 pm


Trade QB Kevin Kolb to the Seahawks for pick #25…
Trade picks #23 & 85 to the Dolphins for pick #15

#15 – DE Aldon Smith, Missouri
#25 – CB Jimmy Smith, Colorado
#54 – OG Marcus Cannon, TCU

April 16, 2011 10:23 am

Nice Draft Jott,
Would be 3 Potential Starters at positions of need with these players..

Here’s Paulman’s Draft Scenario (If trades were allowed to occur)

Trade Kolb to Seattle for #25 Overall Pick in 2011 and a 3rd Rd pick in 2012)
Trade M Patterson to Panthers for #97 Overall Pick (1st pick in 4th Round)

Eagles would now have the following 12 Selections
#23,#25,#54,#85,#97,#104,#120,#149,#153,#224,#237 & #240th)
(The #237 & #240 Picks in the 7th Round are Compensatory picks and cannot be traded per NFL Draft Rules)

Eagles Selections (Rounds 1 thru 5)

#23 – DE A Clayborn (Iowa 6-3 280lbs)
#25 – C/G S Wisnewski (Penn State 6-3 310 lbs)
#54 – OLB B Carter (UNC 6-3 235lbs)
#85 – QB A Dalton (TCU 6-3 220lbs)
#97 – CB D House (New Mexico State 6-0 185lbs)
#104 – RB K Hunter (Oklahoma State 5-8 197lbs)

#149 – DT J Jenkins (Clemson 6-4 310 lbs)
#153 – CB C Allen (Citadel 6-2 190lbs)

April 16, 2011 1:35 pm

i take it paulman , you like your men tall!

April 17, 2011 12:32 pm

I think most of would agree that the Eagles Defensively needs to get bigger,stronger at the point of attack along their Front 7 of the Defense..
Also with all the big WR the Eagles face and around the NFL these days,
Teams also need that big CB and S to combat with these WR down the field which has been an issue with this Eagle Defense over the last few seasons..
Look at all the WR’s who have had big games versus the Eagles, it’s the big WR’s like K Britt, H Nicks, M Austin, R Williams, A Johnson, and most of the Packers WR’s are over 6’2″

April 22, 2011 12:35 am

Everything looked good until 12,13,14 & the picks after that.

San Diego Chargers – J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin JJ Watt will be gone by this pick.

New Orleans Saints – Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor They just signed Shaun Rodgers and really need a OT, DE, LB or RB before a NT.

Green Bay Packers – Aaron Williams, CB, Texas No way they pick a saftey here. They need DE or OL first.
