  1. Gentlemen,

    Having the first overall pick is a tough position to be in. Having scouted countless prospects, the Panthers had it narrowed down to QB Cam Newton or DT Marcel Dareus. Both are special players and will make an immediate impact on any team. Although our QB situation had it’s share of problems last year, the Panthers ultimately decided to give young Jimmy Clausen another chance at proving his worth. As such, Marcell Dareus was the easy pick here. Although not a natural pass rusher, his superb strength and excellent ability to stop the run makes him a special player, and one that will lead our defense. He also has the ability to play both as a tackle or as an end in the 3-4 system. Overall, we are thrilled to have him on our team, and we are confident that in time he will become one of the most deadliest forces in the inside. He is the replacement for Julius Peppers that the Panthers desperately need, and his presence on our team will help us rebuild and attempt to make the playoffs in the coming years.

    GM, Carolina Panthers

    So is it only round 1 today? What’s the time limit on picks?

    P.s.- sweeeeet…

  3. It is a 3 hour time limit on picks. Probably only get through most of Round 1 today.

    C’mon man . That Denver trade never , ever would happen. Bunch of hayseeds.

    With the 8th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Dolphins select Cam Newton, QB, Auburn. When Newton began to slip, the Dolphins war room began inquiring about moving up to draft him. We are excited to bring the player we had at the top of our board to Miami. Newton is a dynamic playmaker that we feel can bring our offense to new heights. Preserving much of our 2011 draft was the icing on the cake, even if we gave up a lot at the top of the 2012 draft.

  6. Bee says:

    Here at Chargers Headquarters with sources stating Denver wanted to move down in the 1st round and gain some picks, we jumped on it right away; being that we had 5 picks within the first 90 selections. With a trade in place and Chargers being able to move up to 2nd overall we wasted no time in grabbing our #1 guy on our draft board.

    With the 2nd pick in the 2o11 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers select Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M. Evan and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to land the best defensive player and pass rusher in this draft, a definite boost to our defense and a great compliment across Shaun Phillips. We still have a pick in each of the 2nd and 3rd rounds to fill in a few more needs but with Von’s upside, Evan and I couldn’t have agreed more on moving up to grab him. This pick could be the pick of the day, heck even the pick of the draft but we still got ways to go.

    This draft just went completely insane.7 trades in the first round? Ugh. I was hoping this would be run more realisticly. Instead it’s like trading sandwhiches in the cafeteria in gradeschool.

    • Brandon says:

      you realize there 7 trades in the first round last year. and that was WITH free agency. without it could be alot more crazy

  8. Tre says:

    The 49ers find themselves in a position that’s becoming more and more uncomfortable to be in with the 7th pick. They have their eyes on Peterson and Miller as the top prospects on their board, however these guys are almost always out of reach and the team is not willing to part with significant early picks in order to move up. While we have 12 picks in this draft, 7 of them come in rounds 6 and 7.

    Still, the drop-off at CB, a position of need, is huge after Amukamara. Quinn would likely have been the pick had he been available as pass rusher is arguably just as big of a need. We solicited offers left and right and were in talks, but the values were VERY low and we couldn’t afford to accept.

    Don’t get us wrong, we like Prince and think he’ll be a semi-frequent pro-bowl caliber CB. He has a great football IQ and work ethic and is the type of guy Harbaugh loves to have on the team, in the locker room, on the field leading. While we would have liked to have picked Prince up a few spots further down, we’re confident that he’ll pay dividends immediately.

  9. Tarynfor12 says:

    NE has two 1st,two 2nds,two 3rds and they trade up for a third 1st rd’er.
    Lets get real.

  10. RedsoxNation88 says:

    With the huge weakness of a lack of pass rush the last couple years, the Patriots were going to look long and hard at the impact players at the OLB/DE positions. In doing so, with the 12th pick we got from a trade with Minnesota, we took Aldon Smith, DE/OLB, Missouri. We wanted a guy with great football smarts, mean, huge upside and very disruptive. He fit the bill to a T. In the 3-4 that the Patriots run, he has the athleticism to rush from either end spot while also dropping into coverage when called upon to do so. Still needing some refinement due to his youth, the sky is the limit for him.
    With the 16th pick we received in a trade with Jacksonville, we took J.J. Watt, DE from Wisconsin. Matched up with Aldon Smith, this tandem should make playing the Patriots a nightmare for years to come. An extremely hard worker who went from obscurity to star in his years at Wisconsin. A high-character kid, that works extremely hard, Watt can play in the 3-4 or rush the passer from the inside. A very versatile playmaker who could be on the field every down. He gives 110% on every down and loves the game of football, something Bill Belichik has said often is must to play for him. This guy will be fun to watch come Sundays.
    With our third pick in the first round, the 17th pick, we took Tyron Smith, OT, USC. With Matt Light being a Free Agent, the Tackle spot was a much needed spot and Smith should fit the bill. Sebastion Vollmer had shown he can handle the left side, while Light was injured much of 2009, Smith should step in and learn at the NFL level from the right side,which is all he played in college. The highest rated OL in the 2011 Draft, Tyron has youth behind him and an OL coach in Dante Scarnecchia, who has a knack for making average prospects, good (Stephen Neal, Dan Connolly) and good prospects, excellent (Logan Mankins, Light, Vollmer). With some added strength and experience, the tandem of Vollmer and Smith could bode well to protect their future HOF qb for years to come.

  11. The New York Giants are elated to announce that with the 19th pick in #mockthree, we have selected Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin. Carimi was one of the tackles we had targeted from the beginning of the draft and we were pleasantly surprised to see him still available to us at 19. With our offensive line beginning to age, we felt that drafting a young tackle was one of our biggest goals. We believe that the 6’7, 314lb product of Wisconsin University is the most capable of all the tackles in the draft to step in and start right away. The Giants are known for their smash mouth style of football and Carimi will be a huge asset in the running game. He will also bring an attitude and mean streak that is needed when battling in the trenches of the NFC East. With the flurry of trades going on in the first round we are very happy to get our man without having to trade up and sacrifice later picks. We look forward to watching Gabe Carimi blossom under the tutelage of one of the best offensive line coaches in the game, Pat Flaherty.

  12. zerodev says:

    With the 25th pick in the draft, the Dolphins select Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama. We are thrilled to have the top running back in the draft fall to us at 25, a player we had much higher on our board. Pairing him with Cam Newton, the top quarterback in the draft, will make this offense one of the most dangerous ones in the NFL. Ingram’s skills could not be ignored at 25, and the war room was elated to see him there when our pick came around.

  13. The Bengals are happy to introduce our first round pick… WR, AJ Green or Georgia. Green was our #1 player on the board and we would have taken him had we had the first overall pick. Green is a dynamic player who we feel makes thais team instantly better. Green is the most natural WR we have graded in a long time. The extra skills that he possesses are skills that can’t be taught. He was made to play WR. QB was an option, and a franchise QB was our biggest need. In the end we decided not to pick either of those two players. We’re excited to add Green to a very young and talented group of skill players.

  14. Justin Wendel says:

    With the 24th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, The Jacksonville Jaguars select Jake Locker, Quarterback Washington (via New Orleans). With David Garrard at age 33 we targeted a Quarterback in round 1 and feel that Locker is a guy with tremendous upside, he possesses a huge arm, great athleticism, and a great mental makeup and feel for the game. We are very excited about this pick and feel he is a player who can be developed into one of the best in the league. The route we took to get Locker was a little unusual, involving 2 trades. We had originally traded back from 16 with New England receiving picks 33, 74, & a 2012 3rd round pick in exchange our 16th overall pick. We had planned on sitting tight at 33 but there were multiple teams trying to come back up and get Locker so we decided to make a move trading picks 33, 121, & 182 to New Orleans in exchange for picks 24 and 226. The Jaguars are very excited to add such a tremendous young talent to our team who we feel can become the face of the franchise for years to come.

    With the 18th selection the Redskins select Anthony Castonzo OT Boston College. After gaining a late 3rd round choice from the Broncos through a trade for #10, the Redskins got to bring more youth and stability into an offensive line that has been filled with older veterans reaching the twilights of their careers. With the addition of picks lost in previous trades, the redskins can grab another player that will be a contributor to the team and fill one less hole via free agency whenever that happens.

  16. Josh D says:

    The Vikings started with the 12th overall selection, but a trade with the Patriots moved them down to the 28th overall pick (and we received the 60th and 125th picks which were turned into pick #35) where they select OG Danny Watkins.
    While we put many trade deals out to move back up for a QB, we weren’t able to break through so we took the best player on the board and its one that can help immediately along the O-line. Watkins is capable of starting right away which means a lot because both starting guards are coming off seasons with injury, with one leaving questions as to how good a starter he is and one leaving people wondering how much longer he will play. The Vikings War Room believe that Watkins could start at ROG at the start of the season and move to LOG in case of injury/retirement. He also has experience playing tackle and could give the Vikings some options in case of injury.
