The NFL season kicks off tonight with an exhilarating of a match-up with the defending Champions the Saints hosting the NFC runner up Vikings.  The weekend boasts several other intriguing match-ups but at NFL Mocks our job is to keep things focused on the Draft and related issues.  So below are some of my bold predictions that involve the NFL Rookies.  Stay tuned for a College Football pro prospect bold predictions article soon.

  1. The Bills rookie running back CJ Spiller will have a touchdown score of over 50 yards.  Spiller will be given the ball in space and he will break off a long scoring strike.
  2. Arizona Cardinal backup quarterback Max Hall will attempt at least 4 passes in a week 1 loss to the lowly the St. Louis Rams.
  3. The Bengals rookies make a statement and have the NFL buzzing.  Jermaine Gresham and Jordan Shipley help lead an explosive passing attack putting up better combined numbers than Ochocinco and TO.  4th round pick Geno Atkins has at least 1 sack while 2nd round pick Carlos Dunlap has none.
  4. The Denver Broncos refuse the urge to use Tim Tebow in the wildcat formation.  Everyone is expecting Tebow to see the field in some sort of gadget play but I am predicting that he remains on the sideline for week 1.
  5. Sam Bradford leads the Rams to a victory over the Cardinals.  Bradford doesn’t throw a pick and doesn’t allow the Cardinals defense to register a sack!

So what are your thoughts? Am I crazy?  Leave some of your bold predictions in the comment section.

    Chiefs beat the Chargers on MNF

    andy thats a good one… w/ mccluster putting up over 100 combined yards

  • Andy

    It should be a good game, how will Rivers and the Chargers look without some big name players, how will the Chiefs offense and deffense look with some new talent and new Coordinators calling the plays, will a camera be on Haley the whole time waiting for a blow up?

    Eagles beat the Packers. The Packer hasn’t won at Philly in years and I think they are way over hyped coming out of the preseason. Just like last year.

    That would be interesting, however I think if it comes to a shootout Packs will still win it. I’m not sold on Kolb nor either defense at this point, and Packers offense is just THAT good

    kold looks to be struggling…. do eagles fans now want mcnabb back?? I was very strongly against giving up mcnabb a qb who just won year in and year out
