Draft Countdown: Thrills start in three days


If you’re a draftnik, and if you think Mike Mayock and Mel Kiper are like Axl and Slash, then you know what’s in three days. The path to prime time is getting short, as draft weekend starts Thursday.

So if the NFL draft is just three days away, then what are some good draft 3s?

Mayock: Draft will be ‘feeding frenzy’ for QBs

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock spent 90 minutes Wednesday on a conference call talking with reporters about the 2011 NFL Draft. Those 90 minutes proved to be a gold mine of pre-draft knowledge, with Mayock sharing his thoughts on many of the prospects and what NFL teams are thinking.

Lombardi: Panthers should go Gabbert

As the NFL Draft draws closer, the consensus is building among our NFL insiders and analysts that Cam Newton will be the first overall pick by the Carolina Panthers.

Mayock: Bowers’ workout shouldn’t change value

Some people might be jumping off the Da’Quan Bowers bandwagon after a pro-day workout that could be viewed as subpar and the Clemson defensive end himself described as just “decent.” But NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock isn’t one of them.

Mayock: Quinn showed ‘rare and elite’ skills for end

If there are any questions about where North Carolina DE Robert Quinn projects in the upcoming NFL Draft, NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock doesn’t share them.

Davis: Stop comparing Miller to Gholston

Texas A&M LB Von Miller is the top-ranked player at his position, and figures to be a top-10 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Mike Mayock has Miller listed as the No. 2 prospect in the draft. Our Charles Davis believes that Miller won’t get past the Cardinals at No. 5. And even then, he’s not sure that he gets past the Bills at No. 3.

Lombardi: Locker impressive, but still a ‘project’

NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi didn’t change his opinion after watching Jake Locker’s workout at Washington’s pro day.

Mayock: Eastern Washington RB Jones one to watch

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock chatted with users on Friday, as anticipation for the draft continues to build. One of the great things about a Mayock chat is that you usually discover a prospect that you likely have never heard of. And Mayock failed to disappoint. When asked about a potential “little man” in this year’s draft, Mayock sang the praises of Eastern Washington RB Taiwan Jones. The junior was unable to perform at the combine because of a foot injury, and scouts are clamoring to get a glimpse of the kid. As is Mayock. “He’s 194 pounds and I think he’s going to run 4.35 or better,” Mayock said. “He’s a home-run hitter who can impact the return […]

Mayock: Young helped himself at Boise St. pro day

Charley Casserly, Charles Davis and Mike Mayock discuss the impact of Boise State’s pro day Thursday on the draft stock of wide receivers Titus Young and Austin Pettis.

Mayock: Ponder continues to rise up boards

The lockout is having an impact on school’s pro days. When prospects such as Florida State QB Christian Ponder are working out for scouts, he is usually throwing to NFL free agents — a practice that has stopped because of the labor dispute. Ponder threw to former St. Louis WR Isaac Bruce, a fullback and a tailback while taking his scripted throws down from the originally planned 60 to 35.

Lombardi: Von Miller will have instant impact

As teams go through the evaluation process of Von Miller, they’re looking for more Clay Matthews and less Vernon Gholston.

Is there concern over ailing Bowers?

Is Clemson DE Da’Quan Bowers‘ draft stock slipping because of questions about his recovery from knee surgery? There are at least rumblings of concern.

Mayock: Teams could fall for ascending Ponder

Very quietly (at least until now), Florida State QB Christian Ponder has been an ascending prospect among the quarterback class in the 2011 NFL Draft. We’ll certainly take Mike Mayock’s word on this one.

Mayock: Ingram’s 40 time ‘really doesn’t matter’

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock was on hand to watch Alabama’s pro day workout, and an improved 40-yard dash time didn’t change his impression of Mark Ingram.
