NFL Mock Draft 2011

I haven't had much time lately to research or do multiple versions this year.  Regardless, here is this years crack at mayhem.  Note: Trades were not factored in this year, given the mess the NFL is in.  That being said, there is a good chance the Texans trade up and, of course, the Pats and Bears trade down.

1.  Carolina Panthers - Cam Newton
2.  Denver Broncos- Marcell Dareus - huge boost for a porous defense
3.  Buffalo Bills - Von Miller
4.  Cincinnati Bengals- Julio Jones - hopeful a stud WR might keep Carson around
5.   Arizona Cardinals- Patrick Peterson - great athlete for a terrible pass defense
6.  Cleveland Browns- AJ Green - could go for DE (Quinn) but needs WR
7.  San Francisco Niners- Blaine Gabbert
8.  Tennessee Titans- Nick Fairley
9.  Dallas Cowboys - Tyron Smith
10. Washington Redskins  - Robert Quinn - nice pair with O-Sack-Po
11.  Houston  Texans- JJ Watt - Quinn and Watt could flip flop
12. Minnesota Vikings- Jake Locker - unless he is this years' Leinart, Quinn, Clausen
13. Detroit Lions - Prince Amukamara
14. St. Louis Rams - Corey Liuget
15. Miami Dolphins - Mike Pouncey
16. Jacksonville Jaguars- Ryan Kerrigan - Jags are to DE's what Lions are to WR in draft
17. New England Patriots- Anthony Castonzo
18. San Diego Chargers- Cameron Jordan
19. NY Giants - Nate Solder - would love Castonzo
20. Tampa Bay Bucs - Da'Quan Bowers
21. Kansas City Chiefs - Gabe Carimi
22. Indianapolis Colts - Phil Taylor
23. Philadelphia Eagles - Adrian Clayborn
24. New Orleans Saints - Akeem Ayers (might also grab Ingram if Pats don't at 17)
25. Seattle Seahawks- Danny Watkins
26. Baltimore Ravens- Jimmy Smith
27. Atlanta Falcons- Kyle Rudolph - perfect replacement for Gonzo and big target for Matty Ice
28. New England Patriots- Mark Ingram
29. Chicago Bears - Derek Sherod
30. NY Jets - Muhammad Wilkerson
31. Pittsburgh Steelers - Aaron Williams
32. Green Bay Packers- Cam Heyward - Justin Houston also possible
