Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree underwent surgery on his torn Achilles' Wednesday. He is expected to be sidelined a minimum of six months. Crabtree is almost a certainly going to miss the regular season with a chance of maybe suiting up for the playoffs.
Obviously a huge loss for

Rolando McClain (23) informed the Ravens Wednesday that he was retiring only 33 days after signing with the team and ending his 3 year career. McClain was arrested for the third time in 11 months just 10 after signing the contract, a feat only rivaled by that of Titus Young who managed to get arrested 3 times in a single week just this past week. McClain is a former #8 pick, who had the talent necessary to compete in the NFL, but his premature retirement seems to convey that he just doesn't care about football anymore. And the Raider draft curse continues.....
The Ravens appeared to have seen the writing on the wall and traded up in the 2nd round of this year's draft to select Arthur Brown, LB from Kansas State. Brown's selection at the very least may have changed McClain's position/role on the team, but it also could have meant the beginning of the end for McClain in Baltimore.
I hope Rolando McClain (and Titus Young for that matter) can get his life straightened out and maybe even make a return to the NFL. Most would agree that it's sad seeing that type of talent wasted, but more importantly seeing a young man who is "lost" in life.

David G. (35) announced his retirement Wednesday stating that his bad knee was the cause. The Jets along with their QB situation continue to make the wrong kind of news. The Jets had figured to have a 3-way competition between Sanchez, Garrard, and rookie Geno Smith for the starting QB job. Even if David G. had not won the starting job, his presence was invaluable serving as a mentor to Geno Smith and as a capable veteran backup. His presence also afforded the Jets some flexibility on just what to do with incumbent starter Mark Sanchez who know figures to stay with the Jets. What is likely to get overlooked is the retirement's affect on Geno Smith who is now without a mentor. Obviously, many successful QBs haven't had the luxury of having a mentor as a rookie, but it most certainly helps and it would have given the Jets with another option besides indoctrination by fire if Smith proves unready to take over the starting job week 1.

Welcome to the 2nd Annual ProFSL NFL Mock Draft. We are doing just the first round this year. Below is the link to the 2011 NFL Mock Draft. Please feel free to leave your comment/suggestion/disputes below. We love to hear feed back from our readers.
OT Luke Joeckel, Ht:6-6 Wt:288 40:5.2
2011 NFL Mock Draft
1. Kansas City Chiefs (Corey) - Luke Joeckel OT
No surprise here as Joeckel is considered a premier OL prospect. The Chiefs have no problem running the ball, so any offensive line improvement will only aid their struggling passing game.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars (MillerTime) - Dion Jordan LB/DE
At 6'7 and 243, Jordan is a lean, mean, fighting machine. He'll look good in the new Jags' unis and logo. The Jaguars have a history of having strong defensive fronts and Jordan could be the best chapter yet.
3. Oakland Raiders (Corey) - Geno Smith QB
The shotgun spread offense that Smith ran at WVU is perfect for Oakland who is still missing the years they had with Rich Gannon. Oakland needs to draft a franchise QB even if it is a big risk.
4. Philadelphia Eagles (MacAttack) - Eric Fisher OT
Injuries destroyed a line that headed into the year with a chance at being one of the best units out there. We got extended glimpses of Todd Herremans and Jason Kelce, but losing both men (as well as Jason Peters) wasn't something they were ever going to recover from.
5. Detroit Lions (Mike) - Dee Milliner CB
The Lions' secondary needs help after last season and Milliner can step in as a premier cover corner. He is also aggressive and could aid in improving that turnover ratio in his rookie season.
6. Cleveland Browns (ProFSL) - Chance Warmack G
The Browns' biggest needs are on the offense. They desperately need play-making wide receivers, but it is too much of a risk this high in the draft. Their line is pretty good but has a hole at guard. Drafting Warmack will open up more holes for fellow Bama RB Trent Richardson and keep Weeden's passing plays alive.
7. Arizona Cardinals (Geoff) - Lane Johnson T
The Cardinals have once again invested in a "franchise QB," this time Carson Palmer. If they want him to spend more time looking downfield, and less time at the ceiling of U of Phoenix stadium, flat on his back like Kevin Kolb, Max Hall, John Skelton and so many others have over the past few years, they need to invest in the offensive line. Johnson is quick footed tackle who has been converted from QB to TE to DE and finally to tackle since his senior year in HS in 2009, so he is a quick study and will be a valuable asset in the desert.
8. Buffalo Bills (Mike) - Jonathan Cooper G
Cooper is one of the best rated guards in a draft full of top prospect linemen. This is a safe pick for Buffalo. After losing Andy Levitre to the Tennessee Titans, and backup left guard, Chad Rinehart to the Chargers, the Bills being unable to land an OG in free agency had no other choice here.
9. New York Jets (Mike) - Ezekiel Ansah DE
Rex Ryan is a defensive guy, and the Jets need a playmaker, and that is just what they get with Ansah, arguably the best raw talent in the draft this year.
10. Tennessee Titans (MillerTime) - Barkevious Mingo LB
Mingo was his name-o.... Bark all you want about his name, Mingo is the top LB prospect in this draft. Titans fans will know his name front to back by the time the year is over.
11. San Diego Chargers (Eric) - D.J. Fluker OT
No fluke here... yes, D.J. is another offensive linemen being taken, but this draft is full of great OL stock. Listed at 335 pounds, Fluker is the biggest of the top linemen prospects and will be an emerging force to protect Rivers from throwing more interceptions.
12. Miami Dolphins (Mike) - Xavier Rhodes CB
The Fins would have taken Lane Johnson if he was still here, but Rhodes upgrades CB much more than the next best OT would have.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Eric) - Tavon Austin WR
The top rated WR finally goes off the board. Will Tampa take him? Just maybe, as adding a dynamic young WR2 as an instant supplement to WR1 Vincent Jackson could make this team more exciting to watch and add a few more wins with an explosive down-field offense.
14. Carolina Panthers (Eric) - Star Lotulelei DT
Bringing a star player such as Lotulelei in will be a showstopper for opponents' chance to run against the Panthers. Their recent focus on the defensive side of the ball is making this team much more balanced as long as Cam Newton progresses.
15. New Orleans Saints (Eric) - Kenny Vaccaro S
Without the acrobatics, Vaccaro is a modern day Polamalu coming out of college. He is explosive, can cover like a corner, and play in any type of defensive package. For a Saints defense that has been historically bad, adding this talent can turn them around quickly
16. St.Louis Rams (Geoff) - Cordarrelle Patterson WR
I had anticipated Tavon Austin being available at this pick, but Patterson also fits the bill as an athletic, play-making receiver that can anchor an otherwise mediocre receiving corps in St Louis. Jeff Fisher and the Rams have committed to Sam Bradford for the foreseeable future as the quarterback, it only makes sense that they finally get him some weapons to show off his arm.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers (ProFSL) - Kyle Long OT
New offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. is believed to favor younger and more athletic linemen which makes the position a #1 priority in the draft. The youth is already there with Pouncey, Gilbert, DeCastro, and Adams. Adding another top pick to this line will give the Steelers an opportunity to win the battle of the trenches once again. This makes OT Kyle Long of Oregon an ideal choice. Long comes from a family of NFL players as he is the son of former Raider Howie Long and the younger brother of Rams defensive end Chris Long.
18. Dallas Cowboys (MacAttack) - Bjoern Werner DE
With the facts that many tackles/guards were taken earlier than expected and that Kenny Vaccaro (who Dallas coveted but couldn't trade up to get) was just drafted, the Dallas Cowboys will draft who we think is the best available pick at this part of the draft with Werner.
19. New York Giants (MacAttack) - Desmond Trufant CB
Attention may be focused on a corner's legs and how fast they can run, but Trufant's true talent lies is with his vision. He is perhaps the most shifty and adaptable cover-corner in the draft. These quick reactions are necessary in the NFL to prevent a defense from being burned in a second's time.
20. Chicago Bears (Eric) - Manti Te'o LB
No hoax here, Te'o is a top prospect regardless of the fake girlfriend drama. His defensive knowledge and flexibility is the perfect fit for the Monsters of the Midway.
21. Cincinnati Bengals (ProFSL) - Jarvis Jones LB
The Bengals need LB support and seeing Jones fall this far is quite a surprise due to the level of talent he has. Easy selection for Cincy to put a forceful pass-rusher in the middle of their defense as the best bet is for the Bengals to take LB Jarvis Jones out of Georgia.
22. St. Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins)(Geoff) - Jonathan Cyprien S
With the 22nd pick, and Kenny Vaccaro off the board, St Louis addresses their bleak safety situation with the fast-rising Jonathan Cyprien, S, . It would be tempting to snag Eddie Lacy here, but that only kicks their real problems down the road. Without an elite Offensive Guard left on the board, the Rams grab a very athletic and leadership minded safety who could anchor the defensive backs for a long time.
23. Minnesota Vikings (Eric) - Keenan Allen WR
Allen doesn't have the speed of other receivers and the Vikings could use that after dumping Percy Harvin. Still, his combination of decent speed and size (6'3) make him ripe as the potential replacement for Harvin.
24. Indianapolis Colts (MillerTime) - Datone Jones DE
Jones is a Dwight Freeney style type of defensive end. He can also squeeze through the inside of a line to stop the run. It is a bit of a reach for the Colts, but he is a good fit for the team.
25. Minnesota Vikings (from Seattle Seahawks) (Anthony) - Alec Ogletree LB
Losing Harvin brings in a first round draft pick. The Vikings have offensive talent and addressed the loss of Harvin in this draft. Now, they get to add a true middle linebacker in Ogletree.
26. Green Bay Packers (Anthony) - SS Eric Reid
Reid's draft status was falling and was expected to be taken in the second round. However, the Packers have three top draft needs at RB, C, and S. While grabbing a RB may seem like the best move here, they really need to upgrade both safety positions, so it is smarter to solve half of that problem with a safety that you can build to the right scheme. For most teams who may only want one safety to upgrade in the off-season, Reid may be a square peg fit into a round hole. For Green Bay, Reid is the ultimate fit as a lead safety.
27. Houston Texans (MillerTime) - WR De'Andre Hopkins
Nuk (Nuke) is his nickname... perhaps due to his explosive ability. His best skills are running clear and concise routes and making space when there isn't any.
28. Denver Broncos (Corey) - DE Tank Carradine
Tank is a great football name, isn't it? Cornellius is pegged as an IDP that will be selected in the late first round to early second round. Adding him to the Broncos defensive front will only aid in keeping veteran QB Peyton Manning and the Broncos methodical offense on the field longer.
29. New England Patriots (Mike) - Jamar Taylor CB
He's not the biggest or the fastest, but he's smart, and a playmaker, the kind of player that the hoodie loves.
30. Atlanta Falcons (Mike picking for Eric) - Tyler Eifert TE
With Gonzalez on his last legs, the birds won't miss a beat with Eifert.
31. San Francisco 49ers (Geoff) - Zach Ertz TE
Harbaugh desperately needs another TE for his offense, and Delanie Walker's perpetual "dropskies" is beyond repair.
32. Baltimore Ravens (ProFSL) - Arthur Brown LB
The defending champion Ravens have some holes to fill with retiring HOF Ray Lewis and other stars who have departed. Their bread and butter is on defense and Brown is a great fit as a MLB. This should be an easy decision for Baltimore.

The Arizona Cardinals have acquired quarterback Carson Palmer from the Oakland Raiders.
The Cardinals gave up a conditional 2014 draft pick and swapped one of their sixth-round picks this year for Oakland's seventh-round selection.
Palmer has agreed to re-structure his contract. No word yet on the deal.

Flynn was traded by the Seahawks for a 5th rounder in 2014 and a "conditional" late round pick in 2015.
