The new NFL Draft Countdown mock...

I usually love this site and its info, but c'mon... there are some real stretches in this mock.

Dallas choosing Shawne Merriman when Derrick Johnson is still available? Suuuure...

Ruud in the first round? Don't think so...

Williamson in the top 10? Kind of a stretch.

I agree with the top 5 picks (again, my mock will be out soon... whenever I stop pulling hair out of my head with all of this HW. Hopefully by this week or next), but after that... eh. I still think Rolle is the #1 CB in the draft.

but still... not as bad as some of the other (cough EPSN cough) mocks I've seen this year.

Stretches?

Wiliamson in the top 10?
DJ out of the top 10?

Also, every report I've read after the combine has Fason moving his draft stock up. Why does he fall to the third round?

Why does Denver forfeit it's third round selection?

I believe its because of something they did, either improper conduct during scouting, or going over their cap to keep players, its a league penalty on them for bad behavior essentially.

I cant speak in depth about many teams, but my god their picks and reasons for them for the Eagles were laughable.

Using the first 2 picks on LBs when backup RB and #2 WR are the most glaring holes on the offense. Heck, right now, a TE is much more needed. Waiting until the 3rd round to address the WR problem, yeah I'm sure that happens. Best one had to be using a 3rd rounder or a CB to rebuild some of the depth from losing Vincent and Taylor. I guess these guys missed last years draft which included Matt Ware, JR Reed, and Dexter Wynn.

I give them credit for doing a mock draft beyond the first round, but its a bad mock.

ok this just raised my hopes like 8 notches... if the chargers get derrick johnson, you can officially put them down as a legit contender for the next few years (as long as brees stays)

if that actually happens on draft day, you can all bet i will go absolutely nuts, itll be insane

no way this will happen.

Or at least if it does... meaning the Cowboys pass on DJ... then I am going hunting for JJ's... perhaps with a side of Tuna :-#

Won't happen though, so I'll have to put my rampant murderous impulses somewhere else.

This site just dropped a few notches in my eyes...their mocks are usually better than this. Come on, Merriman over DJ? Pac-Man over Antrel? Williamson at 9? And why would the Houston Texans draft Alex Barron, after just getting Orlando Pace?

And I'm not sure if we're still going to be drafting Thomas Davis, especially after nabbing Dwight Smith. If we can get a linebacker in place of Darren Howard, I'd be happy to see us take Erasmus James at 16.

And is it just me or is that way too early for JJ Arrington? At least with some of the other backs still on the board...

Spoke too soon. Pace just signed a 7 year deal with the Rams.

The thing I don't get (from a 'Boys fan) is that they could have drafted Derrick Johnson with the first pick and then draft Dan Cody, 'a similar player' with the 20 pick. That would make more sense to me.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
