Post What team is going to make the shocker pick this year?
Every year in the draft,at least 1 team, usually 2 teams, will make a pick that just leaves everyone either scratching or shaking their heads. Who will it be this year. I only see one this year. The usual suspect, Al Davis. He has already started down his road of confusion by firing Tom Cable after a year in which he deserved a raise. My only question is who will be the workout warrior that he falls in love with?


Here is round 1 order:

Quote:
Pick: 1 Carolina Panthers .125 .574
Pick: 2 Denver Broncos .250 .516
Pick: 3 Buffalo Bills .250 .578
Pick: 4 Cincinnati Bengals .250 .582
Pick: 5 Arizona Cardinals .313 .465
Pick: 6 Cleveland Browns .313 .570
Pick: 7 San Francisco 49ers .375 .488
Pick: 8 Tennessee Titans .375 .508
Pick: 9 Dallas Cowboys .375 .512
Pick: 10 Washington Redskins .375 .516
Pick: 11 Houston Texans .375 .523
Pick: 12 Minnesota Vikings .375 .539
Pick: 13 Detroit Lions .375 .543
Pick: 14 St. Louis Rams .438 .449
Pick: 15 Miami Dolphins .438 .539
Pick: 16 Jacksonville Jaguars .500 .453
Pick: 17 Oakland Raiders .500 .469 [Traded to New England]
Pick: 18 San Diego Chargers .563 .457
Pick: 19 New York Giants .625 .453
Pick: 20 Tampa Bay Buccaneers .625 .479
Pick: 21 Kansas City Chiefs .625 .414
Pick: 22 Indianapolis Colts .625 .473
Pick: 23 Philadelphia Eagles .625 .492
Pick: 24 New Orleans Saints .688 .469
Pick: 25 Seattle Seahawks* .438 .484
Pick: 26 Green Bay Packers* .625 .520
Pick: 27 Chicago Bears* .688 .473
Pick: 28 New York Jets* .688 .496
Pick: 29 Baltimore Ravens* .750 .484
Pick: 30 Pittsburgh Steelers* .750 .500
Pick: 31 Atlanta Falcons* .813 .484
Pick: 32 New England Patriots* .875 .504

Since Oakland traded their 1st round pick to NE, Al Davis will have to wait until the 2nd round before drafting someone who runs a 4.3 that nobody has ever heard of. But as for the 1st round, Buffalo is usually a decent choice to select someone much earlier than anybody thinks they will be.

Buffalo is a safe bet to make that crazy pick. I could see them falling in love with Cam Newton and drafting him at 3.

Buffulo is getting a QB... I just question if they will Newton it like Fontes said.

Well if Buffalo doesn't take Newton, it certainly would not surprise me to see Cincinnati take him at #4 and then they would probably think they would be in a much better position to trade Palmer.

I Could also see em trading Palmer to move up a couple a spots if another QB catches their eye. I can see Carolina thinkin thats a pretty good trade.

Would Detroit taking Mark Ingram constitute a shocker? Cause if so, thats who I'm going with...

No, just to Lions fans. I think a "shocker" pick is someone who is taken well before they are expected to go in the draft. Ingram is a mid-first rounder so it is not that much of a shock.

So for 2010, there were some surprise picks but the first shocker for me was the Jags taken Tyson Alualu at 10 when I saw him as a late first round or second round pick.

In 2009 it would have been the Raiders taking Darius Heyward-Bey at 7 and before Crabtree. Well, maybe not shocking since it was Al Davis doing the picking but you get the idea.

The thing is, the shocker pick doesn't always have to be a bad pick.

Like in 2007, everyone thought the Browns would take Quinn at #3. They took Joe Thomas and it was a huge shock, but ultimately a smart move.

In 2006 Buffalo made a shocker pick when they took Donte Whitener 8th overall, and most saw him as a late first-early second round pick.

As for me, I could see the shocker pick coming out of Cleveland. With them moving to a 43 defense, in all likelihood, they might make something of a reach for a 43 DE like Ryan Kerrigan, choosing to pass over on Robert Quinn because of his year off.

That surprised me as well but it seemed to have worked out for them.

I would say Denver may since they now have John Elway helping to run things with no experience alot like Millen when he was screwing up drafts while he was here.
