Draft Order Week 7

Bryan didn’t feel like doing one of these this week, but I wanted to do a mock draft so I had him email me his nifty spreadsheet so that I could do it instead. I’ll add some personal notes afterward.

Here’s the draft order: Continue reading

WMD: 1998 Colts vs 2010 Rams

This segment of WMD (Weller’s Musing and Divination) came via a suggestion from Bryan, which he mentioned in this post. The suggestion was to compare the 1998 Colts team with the 2010 Rams team. The ’98 season was Peyton Manning’s rookie year with the Colts and this 2010 season is obviously going to be Sam Bradford’s rookie year with the Rams. The Colts were coming off an abysmal 3-13 season that landed them the top pick in the 98 Draft. The Rams are coming off an abysmal 1-15 season that landed them the top pick in the 10 Draft. Colts top receiver, Marvin Harrison was entering his third season and had yet to really put together a great season. Rams top receiver, Donnie Avery is entering his third season and has yet to really put together a great season. It was Colts head coach, Jim Mora’s first year with the team. It’s Rams head coach, Steve Spagnuolo’s second year with the team. The Colts star running back, Marshall Faulk, who was easily the best player on the team, was entering his fifth season and was coming off a good season in which he was able to play in three more games than he had the previous year. The Rams star running back, Steven Jackson, who is easily the best player on the team, is entering his seventh season and is coming off a great season in which he was able to play in three more games than he had the previous year. The Colts had finished dead last in the worst division in the league the previous year. The Rams finished dead last in the worst division in the league last year. Also, when all else failed the Colts had the small bright spot that was their punter, Chris Gardocki. And, when all else fails the Rams have the small bright spot that is their punter, Donnie Jones.

2011 NFL Mock Draft I (05/15)

Well the 2011 NFL Draft is only about 341 days away, which means it’s time for my first 2011 mock draft. I’m determining the draft order by using vegasinsider.com’s odds on who will win Super Bowl XLV, which I am listing with each team. The only exception to this is Oakland, because they traded their first round pick to the patriots, so in that slot I am listing the Raiders odds of winning the Super Bowl, not the pats. This is just one round, because let’s be real about it, a mock draft of any length with the actual draft this far away is just ridiculous… but it’s fun to do, so here it is: Continue reading
