Default Your Picks on Record

I've been thinking of this thread for awhile as a way to disrupt the partisan effect that's overtaken the mane in the last year. So I want everyone on record with 3 players they would love at #11 and 3 players they would hate at #11.

No takes where "I'll only be happy if we trade back/up" will be accepted. Only 3 players you'd be thrilled with, and 3 players you'd despise.

You cannot choose any of these players because there's no way they'll drop out of the top 10:
Ndamakong Suh
Gerald McCoy
Sam Bradford
Russel Okung
Bryan Bulaga
Trent Williams
Eric Berry

You can only choose from these players because they have a realistic chance
of being taken anywhere in the 1st round.

Dan Williams NT, Tennessee
Dez Bryant WR, Oklahoma
Mike Iupati OL, Idaho
Rolando McClain LB, Alabama
Brandon Graham DE/LB, Michigan
Jimmy Clausen QB, Notre Dame
Sean Weatherspoon LB, Missouri
Earl Thomas S, Texas
Bruce Campbell OT, Maryland
Sergio Kindle LB, Texas
Derrick Morgan DE, Georgia Tech
Joe Haden CB, Florida
Anthony Davis OT, Rutgers
Kyle Wilson CB, Boise St
Taylor Mays S, USC
Jerry Hughes OLB, TCU
Charles Brown OT, USC
Maurkice Pouncey C, Flordia
Golden Tate WR, Notre Dame
Jared Odrick DL, Penn State
Ryan Matthews RB, Fresno State
Jason Pierre-Paul DE, South Florida
CJ Spiller RB, Clemson
Everson Griffen DE, USC
Devin McCourty CB, Rutgers
Kareem Jackson CB, Alabama
Roger Saffold OT, Indiana
Jermaine Gresham TE, Oklahoma
Arrelious Benn WR, Illinois
Daryl Washington LB, TCU
Golden Tate WR, Notre Dame
Regis Benn WR, Illinois
and yes, Tim Tebow QB, Florida

This is your chance to be on record. Please do not come whining about the pick after the fact unless the Broncos chose a player on your "hate him" list. If you choose not to participate, you forfeit your right to complain.

Already said Tebow...but that is contingent on Denver trading with Philly so they get 11 and we get 24.

If we trade back, Tebow.
If we stay put, McClain.

I'll get the ball rolling with my own love/hate list
Love them:
Brandon Graham- Defines what it is to be a football player. Has the versatility to play ILB, OLB, or DE. A great weapon no matter where he lines up.

Sean Weatherspoon- Stepped into the Senior Bowl and was the immediate unquestioned leader. He is the Brian Dawkins/Al Wilson of this draft class.

Mike Iupati- I think he'll be the best interior lineman from this class, and I don't care that it's a little early, historically, to take an OG.

Hate them:
#1-Rolando McClain- I see nothing from this kid that makes me believe he'll be a good player or a leader. I think he owes all his success to playing on a great defense.

#2-Maurkice Pouncey- I think Pouncey is overrated as a center, and even more so as a football player. Spending #11 on a center would suck. Spending it on an overrated one would be even worse.

#3-Tim Tebow- I thought of leaving him off the list because I don't think anyone would be happy with him at #11, but I think he'll go in the 1st round and wanted to be as objective as possible with this thread.

Please folks, try to pay attention. There are a million threads in which to talk about the ifs, this is not it.


6 players that is all.

Happy with:

McClain
Pouncey
Iupati

Unhappy about:

Bryant
Haden
Weatherspoon

Now, I think it's fair to comment on the fact...that many of these guys listed have no business in the top 15...so although I listed Bryant, Haden & Weatherspoon as the 3 I don't want...they at least are top 15 guys. Some of those folks aren't even close to top 15 picks.

I agree, but I wanted to make this thread as black and white as possible. I'm hoping that people will engage in the spirit of the thread and not simply choose to hate guys who have no business really being in the discussion at #11.

Some of the players you listed would be dumb at 11 (like Tebow) so I only commented on players who I think an NFL team would consider a viable pick at 11.

I REALLY liked the outcome of Jay Goldberg's most recent mock for us . . . so I'll go with it: http://www.900footballlinks.net/2010jaymockdraft.htm
#11: Bryant
#43: Iupati
#45: Walton

I can't imagine a more dream draft than that though I don't see any way that Iupati falls that far . . .

Please keep your "comments" in one of the thousand other threads.

Either go on record, or stay away. And don't come whining tomorrow night.

You've missed the point of the thread. This is not a prediction thread, there are plenty if that's what you're looking for.
