Two days and counting.. Get those entries in..

Its weird.. two days to go (more or less), and I still dont really know what the Vikings are going to do at #12, nor do I have any clues about most of those entry questions.. fun times.


What's really funny is most people want the Vikings to take a QB at 12 (myself included) but the NFL has invited 25 players to attend the first night of the draft and only 2 of them are qbs and they are expected to go in the first 5 picks. 

Are there really only 2 qbs in the top 25 based on BPA?  If so, my entry is so screwed!

Based on most "experts" BPA, yes, that is true.

I think the issue is that its VERY likely that more than 2 QBs will be drafted in the Top 25, but its not nearly as clear as to which ones.

And the NFL is trying to avoid the Aaron Rodgers/Brady Quinn/any other guy sitting alone in the "stew room".

And Kiper's latest big board:

Patrick Peterson * CB6-0219
Analysis: An extraordinary athlete, Peterson has 4.3 speed, safety size, good cover skills and a willingness to hit. He's also a big threat in the return game. Last week: No. 1

Von Miller LB6-3246
Analysis: Miller can impact NFL games early in his career as a pass-rushing 3-4 outside linebacker, but he also has coverage skills. Heady, big-time athlete. Last week: No. 2

A.J. Green * WR6-4211
Analysis: Premier wideout in the draft. Good route-runner, great size and hands, good speed (4.48 in Indy). Immediate help. Last week: No. 5

Nick Fairley * DT6-4297
Analysis: After facing some questions about his size, has had great workouts, and the pile of tape is still immense. Versatility and skills imply star potential. Last week: No. 3

Marcell Dareus * DE6-3319
Analysis: Dareus is a gifted penetrator with pass-rush skills to burn and a good motor. Well-liked, scheme-versatile, I like him most as a penetrating 3-4 DE. Last week: No. 4



Da'Quan Bowers * DE6-4277
Analysis: Perhaps draft's most gifted pass-rusher, has big upcoming pro day, with small injury concerns. Potential to go as 3-4 OLB or 4-3 DE. Star athleticism. Last week: No. 6

Robert Quinn * DE6-4265
Analysis: Great natural pass-rusher, solid athlete, serious motor, high character. Quinn could be an early impact threat. Last week: No. 7

Julio Jones * WR6-3220
Analysis: Very good when healthy. Worked out brilliantly in Indy; ran a 4.39. Some durability concerns, but has maintained high stock all year. Last week: No. 8

Prince Amukamara CB6-0206
Analysis: Great instincts, finds the ball with good awareness and has good hands. Good speed, safety size. Ready to start at corner. Last week: No. 11

Muhammad Wilkerson * DT6-4315
Analysis: Continues gains. Scheme-flexible, disruptive, strong penetrator. Ideal 3-4 DE. Thought he could be top-10 pick next year; in the mix for 2011. Last week: No. 12

Corey Liuget * DT6-2298
Analysis: Reads game well; strong against the run or the pass. Good leverage, disruptive, not elite pass-rusher. Solid workouts. Last week: No. 13

Aldon Smith * OLB6-4263
Analysis: Ideal frame and athleticism to consider for edge in 4-3 or 3-4; still developing but loaded with upside. Athletic enough with size to be versatile. Last week: No. 17

Cameron Jordan DE6-4287
Analysis: Frame and skills capable of handling 3-4 or 4-3 DE duty. Has top athleticism, smarts and speed for DE position. Last week: No. 9

Blaine Gabbert * QB6-4234
Analysis: Strong arm, good accuracy, ideal size and physical skills. An underrated athlete. Had a solid but unspectacular pro day. Will go high. Last week: No. 14

Cam Newton * QB6-5250
Analysis: Big-time physical ability, underrated mechanics and accuracy. Enters a big phase now with individual meetings and workouts. Will face tough questions. Last week: No. 15


Jimmy Smith CB6-2211
Analysis: Excellent size and speed combination, Smith quietly shut down receivers all season. Character concerns overstated in eyes of personnel people. Last week: NR

Tyron Smith * OT6-5307
Analysis: A future blindside tackle. Fallen some after a quick rise. Good frame, athleticism and quickness. Has added bulk. Last week: No. 10

J.J. Watt * DE6-5290
Analysis: Has shown athleticism and versatility at full 290 pounds. Great motor, good diagnostic skills. Last week: No. 17

Anthony Castonzo OT6-7306
Analysis: Smart, reliable with solid footwork and has added needed strength and overall bulk to improve leverage. Consistent worker, smart player. Safe pick. Last week: No. 18

Adrian Clayborn DE6-3281
Analysis: Better fit for 4-3 DE. Really good motor; batters O-linemen. Needs to refine rush skills; gets very high marks from those he's gone against. Last week: No. 19

Mark Ingram * RB5-9215
Analysis: Great pad level, explodes from contact, a terror on second level; 40 time not a huge concern for me; top-end speed was never assumed. Last week: No. 20

Nate Solder OT6-8319
Analysis: A physical specimen, has great length and has added bulk to his long frame. Could be moved along offensive line to provide help early in NFL career. Last week: No. 21

Gabe Carimi OT6-7314
Analysis: Monster year of tape, battling a number of high draft picks. Better footwork in 2010; added consistency. Excellent frame; could move along the line. Last week: No. 22

Ryan Kerrigan OLB6-4267
Analysis: Limited physical skills but elite instincts, ball awareness and a TFL machine, even against double-teams. Will hope to shake tweener tag. Last week: No. 23

Jake Locker QB6-3229
Analysis: In eyes of evaluators, rebounded some with good workouts, interviews after combine. Arm, attitude, athleticism all there. Accuracy the question. Last week: No. 25

Locker appears to be rising amongst the "experts" in the last 2 weeks or so. I bet he ends up going somewhere in the 1st, and the rest last until the 2nd. Should be interesting.

I think we'll see 4 QBs in the first.

Gabbert, Newton, Mallett, Locker.

Well, last year, they invited guys to the draft that werent even projected to go in the first round. I think the NFL inviting players to the draft is more so for fan interest, as having guys come out and shake the commissoner's hand in the 2nd or 3rd round creates some sort of viewing interest.

And with this particular draft in the midst of the CBA dispute (putting that nicely), its an olive branch to these draft picks, allowing the NFL to show they "care."

Dustin wont like this (for our bet), but Ponder is also pegged to be in the 1st round. Being that Kaepernick and maybe even Dalton could go, its has the potential to be more QB heavy than we think.

By who? Certainly not by the big guns on ESPN. Most of the pundits I've seen have 3-4 QBs going in the first round, not a one of them had Ponder there.

In the bottom half of the round, only Seattle would be considered to have the QB position as a position of need. Are the other teams going to reach for players who are not at a position of need?

Many mock drafts that I've read, including some of those affiliated with the NFL netwrok have Ponder in the first round, ranging from Jacksonville's pick to Seattle. I honestly believe that a run on quarterbacks will start with one pick that gets teams nervous aboutnot getting a signal caller, which may prompt some movement. That run could start with Washington at #10, if they take Locker or even us with taking Lokcer or Mallett at #12.

I've not seen those mocks. Not a one. Then again I've seen one silly mock that has us picking Dalton at #12.

LOL.. just changed mine actually, although I dont think 7 will go (but its possible, if Andy Dalton is picked).

Some of these entries are very similar, but no two are completely alike, even with the added entries and changes made to some. Will be exciting to track on Thursday and Friday (if Friday is needed for tiebreaker purposes).

Just a reminder.. make sure your draft entry is submitted and/or altered to your liking before the number 1 pick is announced tomorrow night.

Its draft day!!!! Gonna definitely be a weird one, without the fact that this thing is 3 days now. I imagine that we'll jump around this and the regular draft thread all day and during the event this weekend. I'll be using this thread exclusively to update folks on the draft challenge so there isnt any confusion.

There is still time to submit an entry. Since somebody is gonna win, it would be fun to have any many entries as possible to make it the most fun (and nerve racking for some lol). Good luck if youre already in or are preparing to enter.

I'm guessing the big early drama is going to be over Gabbert; either he'll fall to the Titans, or the Redskins will move up to grab him. One or the other.

Been a lot of smoke about the Skins moving up, but it would take next year's picks probably. Or their 2nd this year at least. They have no 3rd or 4th rder this year I believe.

Which draftee will be the first to blubber like a baby? would have been a good question.

LOL.. maybe next year.. FYI.. there is currently a massive tie for 1st place, with most of the players receving 1 point for the Broncos being the first team to take a defensive player. I expect that tie to be non existant in about an hour.
