Chicago Bears Fans 2012 Mock Draft, #9 – Carolina Panthers

2011 #1 Pick Cam Newton scored alot of points for the Panthers last year, now can they get someone who can tackle somebody?

Previous Picks:
1)Indianapolis – QB Andrew Luck, Stanford
2)Washington – QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor
3)Minnesota – OT Matt Kalil, Southern Cal
4)Cleveland – RB Trent Richardson, Alabama
5)Tampa Bay – CB Morris Claiborn, Louisiana State
6)St. Louis – WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State
7)Jacksonville – WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame
8)Miami – QB Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M

The Panthers could not stop anybody last season, every game they played in was like an arcade game. Cam Newton proved in his rookie season that he can be a winning QB in this league, now Ron Rivera should trun his attention to the defense—and more specifically, his pass rush. As a disciple of Buddy Ryan;s 46 defense in Chicago and Jim Johnson’s attacking defense in Philly, you know he wants to get some more guys who can get into the backfield. Maybe if Floyd or Blackmon was available here, you take a long look at one of them—but if they are both off the board, expect a defensive lineman to go here.


Chicago Bears Fan 2012 Mock Draft…#8, Miami Dolphins

If QB Ryan Tannehill is still on the board at #8, don't expect too much thinking from the Dolphins before that card goes up to the commissioner.

Previous Picks:
1)Indianapolis – QB Andrew Luck, Stanford
2)Washington – QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor
3)Minnesota – OT Matt Kalil, Southern Cal
4)Cleveland – RB Trent Richardson, Alabama
5)Tampa Bay – CB Morris Claiborn, Louisiana State
6)St. Louis – WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State
7)Jacksonville – WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame

If the draft really falls this way, it would be a dream scenario for the Dolphins, who gets the guy they want WITHOUT having to trade up to get him. Tannehill played under Mike Sherman at Texas A&M, so he has experience in a pro-style offense, and has surprising athleticism. Think Andrew Luck without as much arm strength.
Of course, this is the same team that once drafted Ted Ginn, Jr. with a top-10 pick. So who knows for sure. Vote below on what you think the Dolphins will do:


Chicago Bears Fan 2012 NFL Mock Draft – #7, Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jags 2012 1st-Round choice, QB Blaine Gabbert

Previous Picks:

1)Indianapolis – QB Andrew Luck, Stanford
2)Washington – QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor
3)Minnesota – OT Matt Kalil, Southern Cal
4)Cleveland – RB Trent Richardson, Alabama
5)Tampa Bay – CB Morris Claiborn, Louisiana State
6)St. Louis – WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State

Almost everybody has either DE Melvin Ingram or WR Michael Floyd slotted here. In my opinion, I am not sure I would take Ingram over DE Quinton Coples on shear potential; and I am not sure I would take a defensive end in general over a chance to get a big, physical receiver like Floyd. However, with the state of the Jaguars the way it is, and the high probability that one of those 3 guys will be available at the Dolphins’ spot, this is where I would definitely try to trade down and pick up some extra mid-round picks. Vote on what you think the Jags will do below:


2012 Chicago Bears Fans NFL Mock Draft, Pick #6 – Rams

Will 2012 be the year help arrives for former #1 overall pick, Sam Bradford?

Previous Picks:

1)Indianapolis – QB Andrew Luck, Stanford
2)Washington – QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor
3)Minnesota – OT Matt Kalil, Southern Cal
4)Cleveland – RB Trent Richardson, Alabama
5)Tampa Bay – CB Morris Claiborn, Louisiana State

Up next at #6 is the St. Louis Rams. Consensus has it they will be looking to (finally) get QB Sam Bradford some early round help with WRs Justin Blackmon or Michael Floyd. However, there have been late rumblings that they will go defensive line with DE Melvin Ingram or DT Fletcher Cox—which I don’t think you can totally count out, with the influence of Jeff Fisher as head coach. It will also be interesting to see if two teams desperate for a franchise QB, Kansas City and Miami, begin to panic and give up the farm to make sure they get the rights to the 3rd-best QB in this draft, Ryan Tannehill. Vote below on what you think the Rams will do come Draft Friday:


Chicago Bears Fans 2012 Mock Draft, Pick #4: Cleveland Browns

Here are the picks so far:
#1: Indianapolis Colts – QB Andrew Luck, Stanford
#2: Washington Redskins – QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor
#3: Minnesota Vikings – OT Matt Kalil, USC

Which brings us to pick 4 overall, the Cleveland Browns. They could go a number of ways: a) Draft a workhorse RB like Trent Richardson, a shutdown CB in Morris Claiborne to team with Joe Haden, or draft a potential franchise QB in Ryan Tannehill, if they still are not sold on Colt McCoy. As last year shows, GM Mike Holmgren cannot be counted out from trading down from a high first-round pick to accumulate extra mid-round picks. So, here’s the poll:

– In spite of all the personnel turnover this offseason, the Bears special teams are maintaining their place among the NFL’s elite.

– The NFL admitted today that the Darren Sproles’ TD against the Bears was not a TD, and should have been reviewedbut blamed a faulty beeper for the missed call.

– I personally believe it is posturing to make the Packers game plan for a few different scenarios, but Chris Harris says he is “50-50” for this week’s game against the Packers.

– In other injury news, Earl Bennett is looking like a scratch for Week 3.
