2011 Mock Draft by Coach Kennedy

The Carolina Panthers are being tight lipped about their decision for the number one pick. It’s a good strategy because it gives them the latitude to make a multitude of moves to better their draft picks in the 2011 draft or drive up interest for the top pick for teams that need a quarterback. However, I think they will keep the number one pick and select Gabbert to be their franchise QB.

 

The Buffalo Bills are the start of the turmoil for many teams. I happen to think the bills will take a hard look at Cam Newton.  However, they will go with a pass rusher. Last season they took a chance on Shawne Merriman and it’s too early to judge. Bills fans know that they need to have a great defense to keep up with the teams in their division. Thus, Miller would be a good fit.

 

Bengal fans are in the middle of a QB vs Owner war. If the owner feels that his starting QB won’t return then I think the Bengals would pick a QB at this spot. Cam Newton is still on the board and has a lot of talent.

 

The Cardinals draft room will be upset with Cam Netwon being off the board. They will execute plan B and either wait for a QB in later rounds or get a worthy veteran to take over the position. Their selection will likely be a CB to step into their secondary with Rodgers-Cromartie.

 

This pick for the Browns is interesting. Most would probably pick a WR with this pick but the Browns need a good outside pass rusher. With Von Miller gone they will take a chance on Bowers.

 

Cowboy fans like to get flashy players in the first round. But they have a ton of needs on the defensive side of the ball. I think they will fill one with J.J. Watt. Though, not flashy, he would be productive in Ryan’s defense.

 

The Cowboys division rival picks at the tenth spot. The Redskins would be overwhelmed with AJ Green still being on the board. And they won’t waste any time turning in the pick.

 

With Wade Phillips taking over as defensive coordinator, the Texans will need to work on filling needs through the draft. I think they want to address the secondary first; however, a quality CB at this point isn’t available. So they will address their pass rush and select Missouri’s Aldon Smith.

 

Sam Bradford would love to see Julio Jones being left on the board at 14. He needs a true number one receiver to began building off the success of last season.

 

I think the Patriots will have the best draft in 2011. And to start off they will select an offensive lineman. Either they will address tackle or guard. I feel they will take Florida’s Mike Pouncey to work opposite of Logan Mankins.

 

The Kansas City Chiefs is in need of a quality right tackle. They will take one at this pick.

 

Seattle Seahawks fans would love to see Washington’s Jake Locker become their franchise QB. It’s a bit of a leap to reach for him this early but I think they would pull the trigger. It is a good pick and would help with public relations and franchise appeal. Besides Locker’s college coach is one of Pete Carroll’s former assistants at USC.

 

The New York Jets need to address the defensive tackle position. Yes, Jenkins is a great DT. However, he has a tendency to get injured. They will take a DT and probably Paea from Oregon State.

Recruiting Spotlight: Joseph Scelfo

20 Mar

For most college football programs offensive line is their top priority. For one school this won’t be a problem. Whoever signs North Oconee High School’s Joseph Scelfo will get a solid lineman who can play both center and guard. This 6`2 275 pound guard has both power and excellent technique. But more importantly he has great leadership skills and superb academic success (3.43 GPA).

Check him out. Number 66

The cornerstone of any successful team requires a solid group of offensive linemen. This collective group of men is responsible for the success or failure of each offensive play.

He began his high school career as a starting sophomore and never looked back. Scelfo is a leader on the Titans offensive unit. Registering a career high 11 pancakes in a game, Joseph Scelfo is the truth.

As a result of his exceptional play he has been the recipient of All region and All Area awards. His play hasn’t gone unnoticed, schools including UAB, Marshall, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Miami, UL Monroe, MTSU, Furman, Wofford, Syracuse, Samford, UCLA, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech has begun sending him mail.

His sports heroes include Todd Mclure, Tony Gonzalez, Jeff Saturday, Walter Jones, and Chris Scelfo. His play reminds me of linemen like Walter Jones, Jon Runyan, and Larry Allen. This kid has pure talent and an enormous upside. A great addition to whatever university he decides to attend.

Expected Graduation Year: 2012

NCAA College Football Rankings

2 Nov

This week the #1 team in the BCS won their game. The Oregon Ducks stumbled out of the gates against the University of Southern California before making a impressive showing in the second half. Also in the USA Today coaches’ poll Auburn overtook Boise State in the #2 position.

Nevada and North Carolina State moved into the top 25. While Miami and Michigan dropped out. The Big East again has no teams in the Top 25, however, Syracuse did receive votes.


USA Today Coaches’ Poll

11 Oct

After this weekend lost to South Carolina, we all expected to see Alabama fall in the polls. However, falling to #8 wasn’t what I had in mind. But I guess it makes a little sense. Alabama is ranked first among one loss teams. Another shocker for me is seeing that the impressive Oregon Ducks wasn’t the #1 team.

Miami the then # 14 team and Northwestern the then # 25 both didn’t make the poll this week. They were replaced by the Air Force Falcons and the Mountaineers of West Virginia.

Last weekend of college football was great. However, this weekend the games should be a lot better because of conference games. Below are some of the most intriguing games of the weekend. I didn’t add all the big games because we all know about those games and teams.

USA Today Coaches’ Poll

27 Sep

Not many changes in this week’s USA Today Coaches’ Poll. Oregon Ducks have made a steady climb since the preseason to No. 4. Texas fell 12 spots from No. 4 to No. 16. West Virginia falls out of the Top 25. And Nevada ranked in AP Poll for first time since 1948.
