Wow, Cam Newton at #3?!?!?!? Both ESPN guys, McShay and Kiper Jr, said this morning that they wouldn't see Newton going before the 3rd round. Would BUF risk #3 on what could become another Jamarcus Russell? Two many questions on a 1 season performance by Newton to take him #3 overall.

Nice stuff Wes.
Newton in Buffalo is definitely interesting. His improvisational style might be helpful with their swiss cheese like OLine.
Do you think Cameron Jordan is better than guys like Cameron Heyward, Robert Quinn, and Adrian Clayborn? Jordan looks almost lumbering to me, but I think these guys will separate more through the offseason workouts.
If you're interested, I just wrote my first post-season 2011 NFL mock draft with all 32 picks over on my site SKOHRboard.com Let me know what you think.

Luck came out today and said he is staying, which is simply a horrid move for this kid. I am sure he is worried about the labor issues, but I think it is quite clear that the sides will come together and get it resolved.
With Luck going i believe right now that Fairley is the clear cut #1.
The Bills will stick with Fitzpatrick. Sure his completion percentage is not up there, nor is his YPA there either, but look at his TD to INT ration with what he has to work with there. Plus the 6.7 YPC is pretty sweet.
Peterson is the best CB in the draft, and easily could go 2nd as Denver is trying to decide what to do with Bailey.
I have to agree with the others on Newton and why teams might shy away from him. Cincy could take him and let him peculate on the bench for a year then oust Palmer in their youth movement.
Mallet, I simply would not be surprised to see him move ahead of Newton on Draft boards and go to Arizona.
What is your knock on Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska? Was surprised not to see him in the top 10.

No way Mallet falls from the top 5 with Luck gone and Locker in flux. If you want him you had better move up.

With the strike looming and the rookie contract landscape being so incredibly fluid, this will be about the most wide-open draft there's been for decades. After fiascos like Jamarcus Russell and now, arguably Young, Luck's decision to stay in school will make it even more open.

Coaches are going to be focused on injury situations, preparation ethic and decisionmaking more than they ever have before, and for all positions. Given the real possibility of a strike, it's arguably likely even the teams with high picks may focus a lot more on their lines than on skill positions. The Rams, for example, demonstrated some good long term planning drafting some good linemen on both sides of the ball before addressing their quarterback situation. Similarly, what good will it be for the Panthers to draft a stud receiver first, if their second year quarterback never has the time to throw to him, and the receiver never has the time to stretch the field?

Remember, last year Mel Kiper's 5th highest ranked player didn't go until midway through the second round. This year, the variance will be even greater.

Be very careful of drafting QB's in the upper rounds who haven't started for @ least 2 years. I can't see Buffalo taking a chance on a 1 year wonder. I know I wouldn't, too much risk.

I was listening to some nameless draft "expert" today and he said with absolute certainty that Mallet is the next Ryan Leaf - unpleasant personality who does not take to coaching. I'm wondering if that's hearsay, pure speculation or if there is any truth to that.

It's fairly easy to see talent on film but intangibles and the will to succeed in the NFL as a competitor counts as much in the long run as skills. Can anyone with knowledge of Mallet confirm or deny what I heard?

With Luck gone, what quarterbacks other than Mallet would go in the top 5? Any chance Gabbert falls to 8?

Really like Saunders work @ KC when he was coordinator there. He extended Priest's career and even got yardage from lumbering Larry Johnson.
