2011 Mock Muncher – Updated 4/28

April 28th, 2011

It’s the final update for the mocks and we had a bunch of different takes on the Falcons draft.

Icon Sports Media, Inc.

TE Kyle Rudolph

Just like last year, I’m trying to differentiate the updates by how many appear in total vs. unique mocks. Total mocks will be every mock munched, but unique mocks will only count those that are updated and they don’t pick the same player over and over. It gets annoying when you come across sites that update their mocks frequently but rarely make major changes to them, just picking the same players over and over again.

So far in total, there have been 626 mocks munched. Justin Houston and Kyle Rudolph were tied, but a late afternoon update has Rudolph pushing slightly ahead. Rudolph appeared in 81 total mocks, while Houston is in 79. Rudolph also appeared in 51 unique mocks, while Houston just 37. Adrian Clayborn came in a close third place with 67 total mocks, and matched Rudolph’s 49 unique ones. Torrey Smith (47 total, 33 unique), Cameron Heyward (25 total, 19 unique), Gabe Carimi (22 total, 15 unique), Derek Sherrod (21 total, 13 unique), Aaron Williams (22 total, 11 unique), Jon Baldwin (20 total, 12 unique), and Anthony Castonzo (19 total, 9 unique) round out the Top 10. Interestingly enough, Ryan Kerrigan came in 11th with 17 total, but all were unique.

In total, 47 different players at one point in time since January were predicted as the Falcons selection. In 256 of the total mocks or about 41% of the time, a defensive end was selected as the Falcons choice. Next most were: wide receiver (86), offensive tackle (83), tight end (80), and cornerback (44).

    I really think they take a TE this year but with them earlier in the draft then I thought they would be I might change my pick for them.

    …………………………… Notre Dame Featured Columnist ………………..on January 5 2011…………………….4 263…reads……………..39……..comments………1…like………………………………….. ……………………….They can be gone in the blink of an eye…………………………………………………..Well it looks like the Cincinnati Beast is gone..According to ESPN via a report from IrishIllustrated.com Notre Dame tight end and current junior Kyle Rudolph has signed with an agent and will declare for the NFL draft..The report is not completely shocking although it is somewhat surprising given that Rudolph is still rehabbing from a season-ending injury for the second straight season..What does this mean for all of the concerned parties?..Whyd You Do It Rudy?.I am sure the biggest reasons that Rudolph has apparently decided to bolt a year early for the NFL are because he is still tabbed as the No. But even with those flaws he is built perfectly for the tight end position and should have a long NFL career..Rudolph was a wonderful player at Notre Dame and a strong leader and while I dont want to call his career a disappointment because it doesnt feel that way he does exit South Bend leaving fans with a sense of frustration and regret..His career could have been so much better if the team was winning more games if he could have stayed healthy and if he didnt both suffer an injury and deal with a new quarterback just as he was coming into his prime at Notre Dame..Going into the 2010 season there were many who believed that Rudolph could potentially put up Jermaine Gresham-like numbers circa 2008 66 receptions 950 yards 14 touchdowns but due to injuries his statistical career is the same as former Irish tight end Anthony Fasano..For his career Rudolph finishes with 90 receptions 1 032 yards and eight touchdowns.

    As rich as this draft is in defensive linemen, I hope a good one makes it into Falcons hands. JMO.
