I loved the Walter football mock for Denver.

They have Carradine, Jonathon Hankins and Montee Ball going to Denver in the first three rounds.

I would be ecstatic if it came about that way.

I went and looked at the PFW Prospectus for the Draft and I was not impressed. Not enough to spend 8 dollars on it.

When I was in high school (I'm 41 now) and into my 20s, before the Internet gave me the information fix I craved, I had a news subscription to Pro Football Weekly and also made sure to get their draft preview material.

Joel Buchsbaum was one of the first, best, and most eccentric draftniks and I loved reading his stuff for PFW. He passed away in 2003, when he was 48 years old. He was a tiny little weird looking recluse who ate, breathed, and **** the NFL Draft before it grew to it's current popularity.

I'm not sure how long PFW's 'Whispers' and 'Way We Hear It' type columns have been around, but I have always remembered reading them and other columns (like 'Audibles') and they were always the first things I looked for when my latest copy would arrive in the mail.

Nobody ever said that Carradine would be an elite NFL pass rusher, but he should be able to be a solid NFL DE.

I could easily see Carradine getting 60+ tackles and 8 sacks per year...good enough for me. He's still one of the best DE's in this draft.

Carradine has some nice power moves and a good first step. If he plays the run well also he would be an ideal 4-3 end. He does look a little stiff on tape like people say but he seems to have a lot of power. He needs to learn Jumpy Geathers forklift move. That was truly an awesome power move he had.

Interesting read, and it does start to shuffle a few more potential pieces into place for the draft (with a grain of salt).

I don't think we could go wrong at RB with either Bell or Ball. I think both would be extremely productive in our system and I would be ecstatic with either (knowing that we have seriously addressed the position).

At ILB, I am still torn on the best player. I would still be 100% behind the T'eo pick at #28 because I believe his skillset compliments our defense and he would instantly be the best ILB we have put on the field since Al Wilson. Larger bodies up front could mean we have the ability to also use him as an inside blitzer, which I think is more likely than finding a Dumervil replacement in the draft. T'eo is also really good in zone coverage (which we desperately need), and I think he has the most upside of the current ILB crop. If JDR likes Minter instead, I am all on board for an SEC tackling machine. I also like Mauti in lower rounds. He might not be a day 1 starter, but he has the potential to be a great player and I love his intensity.

Obviously, there are some potential steals at CB at pick #28, just depending on how round 1 shakes out.

I don't see which defensive lineman will be worth picking at #28. We will miss the top choices, and there willl plenty of "value picks" available later. It's looking like the day 1 starters will be at other positions.

I would love to see Carradine as a Bronco, but nothing about his tape shows me he is worth a first round pick. He could be great, but it's just not there yet. I also don't like "big strong" guys that use bad form. He likes to fall into his tackles, rather than using his strength to drive through his tackles and I just don't get that. It will cost him (in missed tackles) when he is trying to bring down skill players in the NFL instead of sitting duck QB's. In a way,, it shows that he might be working too much on upper body "physique" rather than lower body explosiveness.

Great prospect, but I don't see the first round value.

I'm still wanting Teo in the first and Ball/Bell in the 2nd. I think we can have a good DT/DE in the third, no real difference between end of 1st through the 3rd at that position.

PFW has a really good network of inside sources (especially with the Oakland Raiders) -- however, they will allow teams to float mis-information through their magazine as well. Some of these should be taken with a grain of salt, as they're probably the exact opposite of how a certain team feels about a prospect.

The Tank Carradine and Barret Jones quotes, for example, have the feel of some team trying to 'push' the prospect down in the draft.
Totally agree. I don't even get what the Kawaan short comment is supposed to mean. He likes his mom a lot? So does most of the NFL...

Yeah. This scout (whoever he is) is probably trying to instigate that the kid is going to play soft because he was primarily raised by women and didn't have many male role models in his life. . . lol.

Silly scout.

The draft book PFW puts out every year is worth getting. Very in depth. Nawrocki seems to be trending more toward extreme points of view though.

I'm a cheap ass. I read through it in about an hour and really was turned off by the extremes. I don't see how he could have rated this WR class so low, but had so many guys with 1-4 round grades. Oh well.

you can have a low class, but due to team needs people reach... always happens.


This QB class is an example... no one is really like a Manning, Newton, Stafford, Elway type clear cut #1 one guy...

but due to needs a couple guys like manuel and barkley and even smith will probably all end up as first round picks

I like Swearinger a lot, but I'm not sure that "big hitters" carry the value they used to with the way the rules are now.

I AGREE 100% the NFL is eliminating the "intimidator" like the Steve Atwaters and the John Lynches in the secondary, the guy that makes WRs get alligator arms, the one that can change momentum with one hit.


Which is a sad thing to see, with how much passing there is in the NFL now, there is no "reprocussions" if you will for WRs to go over the middle anymore.
