    Re: A look at the 2011 NFL draft

    [quote user="nycsportzfan"][quote user="slipknottin"]The more I look through the 2011 draft the more Im stunned by the depth.

    A guy like Quan Sturdivant is a first round talent, even if he has a very good year he may not get drafted till like the 3rd round.

    A guy like Noel Devine much the same. Maybe a 3rd rounder, even if he does run a 4.25 at the combine.

    Deunta Williams the FS may also not go until the 3rd or later.

    There are at least 4 senior DEs that are going to be first rounders, maybe 5. And there are a couple juniors that could be 1st round DEs - Robert Quinn specifically. Another pretty good OT class, could be 5 or more taken in the 1st round.

    The safety class looks relatively weak, at least compared to last year. CB isnt as strong either, not as much depth though the top guys (Amakamara and Peterson if he declares) are better than the guys last year.

    The senior WR class is also pretty weak this year.[/quote] Depending on what the Jr's do, this has a great chance of being a deep safety class.. U potentially could have Rahim Moore who had 10ints last yr, Will Hill, Mark Barron, Deunta Williams, Tyler Sash all coming out, i'm sure a couple won't but still, i fully expect at least 3or4 of em 2 declare, with williams being a sr... THen u got some depth with Shiloh Keo of Idaho, and A sleeper of mine, Davonte Shannon of U of Buffalo..

    As for OT, i coulden't agree more, its a loaded class! U got this yrs Freak in Nate Solder of COL, u got Anthony Costanzo, u got Big Matt Reynolds of BYU(great future replacement for Kareem), Lee Ziemba, Demarcus Love of ARK, Derrok Sharrod of MISS ST, Nate Potter of Boise St, Marcus Cannon of TCU, Theres a heck of alot of talent there...

    Definetly gotta cop one of the Centers, outta Wisnewski, Pouncey, O'Dowd, or Colin Baxter... If we wait till mid rds, Dan Wegner of ND is a guy to look out for.....

    LB is loaded, with Chris Gallipo of USC, greg jones of MICH ST., Travis Lewis of OU(my fave LB), Mark Herzlich of BC, Kelvin Sheppard of LSU, Bruce Carter of UNC, moster Sleeper prospect in DONTAY MOCH, who rumour has it, runs a 4.30 40 as a 245 lb LB/DE!!!! Un freaking Real if thats any where near true...

    RB's pretty deep with Quizz, Noel Devine, Daniel Thomas of K'ST, Ryan WIlliams or Va Tech, Mark Ingram, and SLEEPERS such as Brandon Saine, and Roy Helu..... Plus Demarco Murray and Evan Royster, almost forgot about them...

    TE's kinda weak this yr, with Ky rudolph and Weslye Suanders leading the way....

    Guard seems kinda weak as well....

    CB is pretty deep as well, could end up with a guy like chimidi chekwa in possibly 3rd rd.. And its deep for sleepers with guys like Johnny Patrick and Darrin Walls in the class...

    DE is loaded

    Its pretty loaded class right through to be honest, almost as loaded as last yrs class, of course, the JR"s will play a part in how deep the class really is, but on potential, MY LORD! It should be fun...
    [/quote] Man, this is from AUGUST of 2010...lol Not bad, being it was before the last season even began... Its mad fun going through this thread.. I feel good about alot of what i said prior to the draft, all though if u read, there are as usual some things that didn't work out...lol

    Re: A look at the 2011 NFL draft

    Rob Rang biting my style.. I had chose IAN WILLIAMS as my top UDF out there, in what looks like one heck of a UDF class, and he just came out with a list and WILLIAMS lead the way, also Martin Parker is on it, another guy i put on the UDF threads that were up after the draft... When we lose Cofield, i would really like to somehow snag either Martin Parker or Ian Williams.. Parker for rushing the passer, and he has great strength, and Ian for his Run Stuffing abiltiy.. Also, we got to get one of those safties! I mean, Deunta, Lefeged, Silva, tarrant, there are some freaking good safties on those lists.. I really like Darrin Walls as a EXP'd CB out there with solid size and good run stopping ability... Woulden't mind seeing Redeyes guy Shuylar Oordt come in as a UDF for the TE positon... Pat Devlin is 100pct the QB i would crave for outta the UDF's with Josh Portis showing some legit upside, and yet another DT that excites me a bit is Ced Thornton.... Armon Binns, Maehl and Sazenbacher are all guys i spoke of as late rd picks or UDF's i think could make some noise as well..




















































    Plenty of talent left among undrafted class

    Hundreds of undrafted free agents whose phones didn't ring in the
    hours after the end of the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft was
    completed are about to become much more popular than they were
    during the four-month lockout.



    In a historic
    situation that prevented NFL contract-related business from being
    conducted, undrafted free agents can't be signed until the labor
    mess is sorted out and player transactions are cleared to be
    processed by the league office.

















    Pat Devlin figures to be a serviceable backup in the NFL.

    (US Presswire)

    They'll be in queue with many others -- 254
    total draft picks, hundreds of veteran unrestricted and restricted
    free agents -- fighting for attention from the 32 pro teams in
    this first-of-its-kind, two-week free agency window.


    Typically, teams are on the phone with their top undrafted free-agent
    targets throughout the final day of the event, trying to convince
    them to sign on and many negotiate bigger signing bonuses than
    late-round draft picks as agents review each team's draft picks
    and seek the best fits for their clients.



    A
    fair number of talented players from the college ranks remained
    available after Mr. Irrelevant, Houston Texans linebacker Cheta Ozougwu
    (from Rice University), was selected with the 254th pick.




    Below is a refresher course on the top five players available
    overall, and the top five at each position when the curtain is
    finally raised on what is certain to be an entertaining 2011 free
    agency period.



    1. DT Ian Williams, Notre Dame
    Williams fought through a knee injury in 2010, but his toughness
    and hustle from the interior could allow him to contribute for a
    long time as a solid, if not overly flashy, 4-3 nose
    tackle/one-technique.



    2. WR Terrance Toliver, LSU
    Toliver's tape isn't superior, but his size/speed combination
    still typically earns an SEC receiver some sort of draft slot. He
    also looked good at the end of the season and at the East-West
    Shrine Game. He should latch on with a team interested in a
    vertical route-runner with enough size to create mismatches against
    smaller cornerbacks.



    3. QB Pat Devlin, Delaware
    The Penn State transfer did not impress scouts with his arm
    strength at the East-West Shrine Game or his pro day, but his
    performance was not so poor that most didn't expect him to be
    drafted late. Though he ran primarily out of shotgun for the Blue
    Hens, he came out from under center at Penn State and has the size,
    athleticism and intelligence to stick on a roster as a backup or
    potential spot starter.



    4. CB Ryan Jones, Northwest Missouri State
    It was surprising that a solid cornerback who produced for a
    powerhouse Division II program and who blew up his pro day
    (40-inch vertical, 4.46 40 at 5-11, 198 pounds, 19 reps of 225
    pounds) went undrafted. He is raw in his coverage and tackling
    techniques to be sure, but it won't be surprising to see him stick
    as a nickel back with potential as a starter down the line.



    5. DT Martin Parker, Richmond
    Another small-school prospect, Parker showed up big-time at the
    East-West Shrine Game, but teams didn't appreciate his film enough
    to select him even late in the draft. Given time and coaching,
    Parker could be an interesting three-technique prospect who
    provides pass rush as a high-effort wave player.

    [/quote]There are a few good safeties and Centers bothare a good idea to be brought in.Iwould like to see S Deunta Williams brought in. he would of been drafted if he didnt get hurt in the bowl game. He has man coverage skills and has a wider skill set then are 6th round safety Tyler Sash. Oordt has NFL measurables is worth a spot on the practice squad

    Miami 2011 Sophomore Storm Johnson "perfect name for the Hurricanes" is transferring to Central Florida amidst the regime change in Miami. Rumor is the Number 6 RB recruit in*2010**didnt want to compete for carries and wanted the job handed to him and Central Florida will have no problem doing that. He only had 9 carries as a freshman but I have to say certainly looked like a big time RB busting that 70 yard run against South Florida. Look for him to get major carries at Central Florida next year.

He is raw in his coverage and tackling techniques to be sure, but it won't be surprising to see him stick as a nickel back with potential as a starter down the line.




    5. DT Martin Parker, Richmond Another small-school prospect, Parker showed up big-time at the East-West Shrine Game, but teams didn't appreciate his film enough to select him even late in the draft. Given time and coaching, Parker could be an interesting three-technique prospect who provides pass rush as a high-effort wave player.

    [/quote]There are a few good safeties and Centers bothare a good idea to be brought in.Iwould like to see S Deunta Williams brought in. he would of been drafted if he didnt get hurt in the bowl game. He has man coverage skills and has a wider skill set then are 6th round safety Tyler Sash. Oordt has NFL measurables is worth a spot on the practice squad[/quote] Yes, if we could come away with these 5guys, i'd be estatic..

    2. Ian Williams, Martin Parker HON MENTION-= Cedric Thorton

    3. Lefeged, Silva, or Williams HON MENTION- Tarrant

    [/quote] Pretty much what we all ready knew.. The giants draft was fantastic, and they got players even in RD 6 and 7 that could very well be big contributors in the future...

    Miami 2011 Sophomore Storm Johnson "perfect name for the Hurricanes" is transferring to Central Florida amidst the regime change in Miami. Rumor is the Number 6 RB recruit in*2010**didnt want to compete for carries and wanted the job handed to him and Central Florida will have no problem doing that. He only had 9 carries as a freshman but I have to say certainly looked like a big time RB busting that 70 yard run against South Florida. Look for him to get major carries at Central Florida next year.

    [/quote] How did i miss this? Ucf is on the rise.[/quote]Yeah im actually putting together some*tape on *some rush LB prospects they have[/quote]

    We usually always have good DBs, too.

    We got a 4star QB this year when we already have Godfrey. Godfrey is short, but i believe has NFL speed, who knows how he'll fit into the NFL, though.

    According to Giants 101, were signing Hynoski and Jarriel King as UDF's.. Very good pickups, and believe it or not, both woulden't of suprised me if they were drafted in last yrs draft..
