SHOCKED

I'd have cut him right there and then after that performance

though I love how JP Losman wants to loyally follow Clown to any team he roots now :lol:

I agree, between Smith and Muhammad and a great running game he had a potential All-Pro season ahead of him and he just looked lost.

I read that about Losman. Good luck clown.

Ok here it goes: LOTCB Mock Draft V1.1 1st Round Complete!!! (sure to be wrong!):

1. Detroit Lions: QB Matthew Stafford: Not ideally the guy you want at #1 overall, but he has the arm strength, mobility, and insticts to at work be a very good QB.

2. St Louis Rams: QB Mark Sanchez: Has any player sold himself better then Sanchez? Look for this stunning move to happen as the Rams wave goodbye to Bulger in due time.

3. Kansas City Chiefs: LB Aaron Curry: Former Pats exec Scott Pioli would like to deal down here, and if Sanchez does not go to STL, look for a team to move up here. Otherwise, KC takes the best LB available.

4. Seattle Seahawks: OT Jason Smith: The Hawks really wanted Sanchez, but decide to build their OL for the future with the best one on the board.

5. Cleveland Browns: WR Michael Crabtree: Could see BJ Raji here, but the Browns have a lot of $ tied up in Shaun Rogers, and I see the Browns dealing Braylon Edwards, so they 'grab the crab' at this spot.

6. Cincinnati Bengals: OT Eugene Monroe: Logical choice here, this team needs to protect Palmer. BJ Raji is another possibility.

7. Oakland Raiders: WR Jeremy Maclin: The Raiders are in desperate need of a big time WR. Either Maclin or Crabtree in this slot.

8. Jacksonville Jaguars: DT BJ Raji: Rumors are surfacing that DT John Henderson might be traded to Buffalo, so the Jags gladly scoop up the best DT available.

9. Green Bay Packers: DE Tyson Jackson: Could go OL or CB, but the pass rush tailed off miserably in 08, Jackson can help towards a return to 07 numbers.

10. San Francisco 49ers: OT Michael Oher: Disappointed that Sanchez is gone, they scoop up an OT to help another major need.

11. Buffalo Bills: OT Andre Smith: This guy could bHe the next big OL or the next Mike Williams. Talent wise, he could be a perennial All-Pro. Pettrigrew is another option here.

12. Denver Broncos: DE Aaron Maybin: Best first step of all DE's, the Broncos continue to work on a horrid defense and add a nice piece to the puzzle here.

13. Washington Redskins: DE Brian Orkapo: Another team hot for Sanchez, makes up for it here and more and grabs potentially the best overall DE in the draft.

14. New Orleans Saints: CB Malcolm Jenkins: If the Saints continue to ignore the defense and take Beanie Wells, they can enjoy more 8-8 seasons. If they want to improve, they take the best cover corner in the NFL draft.

15. Houston Texans: LB Brian Cushing: In reality, almost any of the 3 USC LB's can go here at this spot, but all signs point to Cushing.

16. San Diego Chargers: OLB Everette Brown: Brown is ideal for a 3-4 defense that the Chargers play. Curvelball at this pick could be a RB, but Brown is too good to pass up.

17. N.Y.Jets: WR Hakeem Nicks: Harvin's stock will slide a bit here, Nicks to me is a guy who is more polished and will be ready to start right away. QB is another slight possibility here.

18. Denver Broncos: RB Knowshon Moreno: I think the days are over for the Broncos to locate any RB to gain 1000 yards. Denver needs the sure thing, and Moreno fits the bill here.

19. Tampa Bay Bucs: QB Josh Freeman: Jets are another team that tempts the idea of drafting Freeman, but the Bucs also have a major need at QB. If Freeman does not go here, he is in for a long wait.

20. Detroit Lions: OT Eben Britton: Strongly considered Ayers here, but after drafting a QB that will get $40M guaranteed, they will need a top OL prospect to protect that asset.

21. Philadelphia Eagles: TE Brandon Pettrigrew: Much to the chagrin of the Buffalo Bills, who should have demanded this pick for Jason Peters, the Eagles get a real difference maker at TE, and complete a very strong makeover for Andy Reid's offense.

22. Minnesota Vikings: WR Darris Heyward-Bay: Vikings have never seemed to solve their issues at WR since Moss left, Heward-Bay is a guy that helps that process.

23. New England Patriots: CB Darius Butler: A pretty unexciting pick for the Pats, but this is why they are so successful. Pats are rumored to be trying to move up this year, so watch out for that.

24. Atlanta Falcons: CB Vontae Davis: Falcons can now key on a defense that needs upgrading, after fleecing the Chiefs for Tony Gonzalez.

25. Miami Dolphins: DE Robert Ayers: WR is a possibility here, but Parcells knows the value of a strong Front 7. Ayers is a guy who can really make execs kick themselves in a few years. Don't worry about last year; Tennessee was horrible and the entire Vols defense suffered. Ayers is the real deal.

26. Baltimore Ravens: WR Kenny Britt: Assuming that they do not land WR Anquan Boldin, this pick makes the most sense, giving Joe Flacco a nice weapon to work with.

27.Indianapolis Colts: WR Brian Robiskie: The Colts continue making their WR corps an all Ohio State bunch.

28. Buffalo Bills: LB Clay Matthews: Bills fan obsess about the lack of a pass rush, but failing to get the 21st pick costs them Ayres. LB is another troublesome spot, and Matthews is athletic enough to be a difference maker for the Bills.

29. New York Giants: WR Percy Harvin: Perhaps the Giants might be scared off by Harvin given the Plaxicent last year, but they shouldn't. Harvin would give the Giants a true home run threat everytime on the field. But this pick might not be here if they trade for a WR.

30. Tennessee Titans: DT Ziggy Hood: Losing Haynesworth left a big hole in the Titans front 4, and Hood can help at least stop the bleeding.

31. Arizona Cardinals: DT Peria Jerry: Another unexciting pick, but another need pick for the NFC Champs (still feels strange saying that)

32. Pittsburgh Steelers: C Alex Mack: Vintage Steelers pick, Mack is a dominating Center and will be for years to come.

Good mock Clown, but I can't see the Tuna passing on Jerry if he's there at 25. While the needs at corner and LB are important, we need a lynch-pin for the 3-4- Jason Ferguson 'aint gonna be around much longer, and good NT's are very hard to find. And the Tuna loves his trench guys.

ESPN, ESPNEWS on the bottom line and Chris Mortensen reported a 6yr-$78M for Stafford and the Lions have come to terms as their #1 pick in the NFL draft tomorrow. :blink: That is $13M a season for a QB rookie that has not even played a down in the NFL. Wow...

Dej'a vu much??? :unsure:

Looking before posting is greatly encouraged. :P

Yeah too bad you had the wrong figures though. Just helping out on the total of the contract. :P

It's $78M for 6-years with $41M of it guaranteed. Still nuts...

Holy Crap! Bring in the new CBA because this is silly. The pressure to justify this makes him potentially the next Joey Harrington in Detroit.

It wasn't the wrong figures, he only posted the guaranteed money (which is correct). The NFL is insane compared to every other major sport with the escalating rookie salaries.

BTW it is a joke that the draft starts at 4 PM this year, although with it being such a nice day out I might be able to enjoy a little of it (if I weren't quasi-sick). Still, how long is it going to run for the first-day picks, till 1 AM?

I agree.

ESPN does record ratings with the draft starting at noon, and they really OWN the day. Starting at 4pm is a great way to lose viewership.

I look forward to this every year, but starting at 4pm this year, probably won't have the time to watch it. In working with the NFL in their media/marketing, I understand full well that they survive in spite of themselves.

Cowboys have a 2nd, 3rd, 2 4th's, 3 5ths, 2 6ths, and 2 7ths.

I'm praying for either Hakeem Nicks, Louis Delmas, Patrick Chung, Ron Brace, or if Tyson Jackson falls... grab his ass!

Jackson might go 3rd to Kansas City. Not 3rd round, 3rd pick. :giggle:

Nicks will be a 2nd rounder... I'm just not sure how early or late. He'll be a great addition for any team.

Sanchez to Jets

Yup. They did give up a lot tho. Both teams got what they wanted.

What was Al Davis thinking? Passed up Crabtree for Heyward-Bey?! Al Davis cares WAY too much about speed.

I want the Dolphins to get Kenny Britt, Darius Butler, or Peria Jerry with their first pick.

Many mocks have the Phins getting Larry English, Everette Brown, etc. I don't want an OLB with the first pick. We have Joey Porter. We have Cameron Wake, whom the coaching staff seems to love. Also, Jason Taylor wants to be a Dolphin again. OLB is definitely a position we need to address, but with the first pick? I mean, I wouldn't mind it....but I'd rather get Ray Maualuga, an ILB, if we're going to go linebacker with that pick.

Terribly annoyed the Seahawks didn't pick up a QB or a receiver. Hope Hasselbeck's healthy...

Kenny Britt go anywhere yet?

that did seem an odd pick

hopefully the football gods are listening and the overrated stiff who can't catch a football goes to the giants :pray:

2 players representing the Shore Conference:

Knowshon Moreno: 12th pick: Denver Broncos

Donald Brown (my idol): 27th pick: Indianapolis Colts

As for the Dolphins, I'm extremely happy with the Vontae Davis pick. The guy has all the tools need to be an excellent corner.
