    I wonder wat the Detroit Lions are gonna do.. The Patriots too

  • BillyGeorge

    how can you have Ryab Mallett ranked second on your 2011 top 5 at each position,and nowhere to be seen on 2011 mock draft board and 2011 Big Board?

    • Brandon Thorn

      Good catch on Mallet not being on my big board. He will be where Gabbert is, my mistake. The mock draft isn’t mine, I will have mine coming later this week. Thanks for the feedback and for reading though, keep checking back for new draft profiles and constant updates.

  • Julian

    Good looking Top 5 , I’m very exited to see P.Peterson … I really believe he has Champ Bailey Skills . Time will tell tho

    Great article i like how in depth it is. Here is to hoping the Steelers get Pouncey or a solid corner. If Pouncey is more of a brawler than his brother he is welcome in the Steel City.

  • chris

    Greg Little and Jimmy Smith to the Cowboys

    • Brandon Thorn

      Why is it Cowboys fans always want the physical freaks of the class? Both guys have character concerns, and both are risky. Intruiging yes, but not sure if that’s wherethey should go. Prince Amukamara would be best, maybe they can trade up for him

  • mike

    You forgot about Jerrel Jernigan in your returners. He’s probably the best one coming out. Derrick Locke is definitely top 5 as well
