    "First Rounder" Most Likely To Drop Out Of The First Round

    This could be an important issue for the Rams, as they have the second pick in Round 2 as well. There are always players who, somewhat unexpectedly, drop out of the first round.

    Who is the most likely candidate?

    Re: "First Rounder" Most Likely To Drop Out Of The First Round

    Hmm, well first we would have to decide on who, in fact, IS a first rounder. That alone could bring some debate. So here's what I'll do.....using Nick's most recent 1st round mock, I'll say.....

    Calais Campbell - He just strikes me as a "Barron" type of player. Crazy physical talent w/o less than desireable work ethic. A bad combine followed by a bad pro day may just bump him to the 2nd round.

    Or maybe....

    Phillip Merling - injuries have kept him out of every workout
    Jonathen Stewart - won't see a football field for the next 6-8 months

    Things that would happen before that would be finished:

    1. Iraq War would be over
    2. A manned Mars landing
    3. Reconciliation between Bernie and Av


    That being said, I'm thinking maybe Jonathan Stewart. I think teams will be leary of the turf toe to pay Round 1 money. Should have known it was a poll....ok Brian Brohm.

    I very much agree, Campbell has free fallen after being told that he'd be a surefire first rounder. He had an ugly season, and has done nothing to impress in the offseason. He's a second rounder for sure. Further more, I don't even want him there. Maybe as a third.

    Stewart could definitely fall, or he could be drafted by a team that already has an established RB and they're just looking for a two man backfield or an eventual replacement. Think Dallas would settle for the second/third best back in the draft even if he's not from Arkansas?

    Calais Campbell is my choice.

    What I'm struggling with is why Kenny Phillips' stock is dropping so fast? I mean, good senior season, good character by all reports, comes with an excellent Saftey pedigree, following in the footsteps of Reed and the much missed Shaun Taylor... Personally, I still see him as a 10-15 sort of pick. Maybe Denver. If he falls to round two, to me, he'd be very tempting.

    I, too, went with Campbell. He didn't have as good a senior year as many expected him to, the workout numbers haven't been what you'd hope, and at almost 6'8", teams are going to worry about whether he can still get good leverage on offensive linemen.

    I think if Kenny Phillips was there you would have to take him at #33. I think Campbell will likely fall out of the first. I don't think Johnathon Stewart will make it as far as the 2nd.

    Campbell 300 pounds 5.03 40 time and a dis pointing 6 sack season which was decrease from his junior year. He is no longer the guy with excellent size and huge upside. Right now he is looking more like Tommy Kelley. I think Otah, Talib, and maybe Jackson are first round locks.

    Re: "First Rounder" Most Likely To Drop Out Of The First Round

    First off, I'd like to know where Johnathan Stewart's name was even mentioned in this poll?

    And secondly, I'd have to say Merling because of his injury concerns.

    I believe tx and I both mentioned Stewart as a possibility.

    He did start this poll. However, tx and I both replied prior to AV's choices being posted.

    Re: "First Rounder" Most Likely To Drop Out Of The First Round

    id say a few players on the poll arent even said to be first rounders at the moment, Brohm for example looks to be a second round pick for someone like the Ravens

    that said, of the people in the poll, Campbell is the one who has hurt his stock with continued poor performances
