Default Re: Bleacher 2011 Mock Draft

It'a all good. most of it just a love affair with the game of football, the truely beautiful thing about draft threads, that most people fail to understand is it's the marriage between College & NFL, really interesting how players prepare, develop, how system/coaches prepare them not to mentions NFL team needs & schemes they run how that affects over all process. While so called experts after constant regurgitation narrow the picks down somewhat, there are still suprises every draft.

This is where we, the fans of NFL teams, like the Texans come in. Our never ending quest to know the available players (underclassman are the wildcard, see Kareem Jackson, he didn't declare until the last minute so he kind of stayed off most peoples radar) and how that balances with priority needs of each NFL organization (again we knew the Texans wanted to address CB but which one? most including us had Kyle Wilson down, but Kareem gets the nod because of the system & coaching he received, plus his background was clean).

The really difficult aspect is not having access to all the information, like during the interview process, the private workouts, background checks etc...so we are limited to the College Football season game film, invitational bowl games, combine & pro days. I'll tell you one thing, might seem like wasted motion, but I dare say its an invalueable tool for fantasy leagues too, after doing this for several years now the familarity of rosters are greatly enhanced, plus you can get a jump of this years bumper crop at the same time.
