Team   Player Comments:
Panthers 1. DE Da’Quan Bowers, Clemson (JR) A rising star; Bowers is #1 in the nation with 15.5 sacks and 26 TFL (Tackles for loss).
With Andrew Luck deciding to stay in school, the Panthers will likely take the best player available. Bowers or Nick Fairley look like the two best players in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Broncos 2. DT Nick Fairley, Auburn A beast, he has recorded 10.5 sacks and 21 tackles for loss this year.
At 6′ 5″ 300 pounds, Fairley could play any position along the defensive line. He just dominates games and if he can keep his emotions in check and stop the “roughing” penalties he could be a keeper.
Bills 3. Marcel Dareus, Alabama (JR) Powerful, quick and excellent size (6′ 4″ 300 lbs).
Strong enough to play tackle and quick enough to play end.
Bengals 4. WR A.J. Green, Georgia (JR) At 6′ 4″ 207 pounds Green has blazing speed and soft hands.
Tons of NFL potential. Green caught 57 passes for 848 yards and 9 TDs in 2010.
Cardinals 5. QB Blaine Gabbert, Missouri (JR) Gabbert (6′ 6″ 235 lbs) is raw but has excellent NFL potential.
The Cardinals might be scared to draft a QB this high after getting burned by Matt Leinart. In 31 career games at Missouri, Gabbert threw for 6,822 yards and 40 TDs. His pass efficiency rating of 132.59 is the second-highest in Missouri history.
Browns 6. OLB/DE Von Miller, Texas A&M Miller recorded 14.5 TFL and 9.5 sacks.
At 6′ 4″ 240 pounds he could be a powerful force rushing the passer. Reminds me of the Cowboys DeMarcus Ware.
49ers 7. CB Patrick Peterson, LSU (JR) The top cover corner in the land with great size and ball skills.
Peterson is a 6′ 1″ 211 pound ball hawk. Locker might also be an option here.
Titans 8. QB Jake Locker, Washington Had an off year only completing 55% of his passes. The Titans are giving up on Vince Young.
Would have been a top 5 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Locker is a big kid (6′ 3″ 226 lbs) with a strong arm and 4.4 speed. Locker is slipping on most draft boards, but he might rise again when scouts see him work out.
Cowboys 9. CB Prince Amukamara The Prince has excellent size (6′ 1″ 204) and might even move to free safety.
An amazing defensive back that could be a top 10 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. The Cowboys could get an offensive tackle here, but the Prince is too good to pass up. CB Terrance Newman is getting old and his skills have greatly diminished.
Redskins 10. DE Aldon Smith, Missouri (JR) A fantastic pass rusher at 6′ 4″ 262 pounds.
Smith recorded 10 tackles for loss (TFL) this year.
Texans 11. LB Akeem Ayers, UCLA Ayers is a big (6′ 4″ 251 lbs), strong, fast run stuffer.
The Texans need help all over; Ayers might be the best available player here.
Vikings 12. C/G Mike Pouncey, Florida A very athletic, versatile player that has nice size (6′ 4″ 310 lbs) and good blood lines.
The Vikings need help at center and they want to run the ball more in 2011.
Lions 13. DE Ryan Kerrigan, Purdue Quick, talented and at 6′ 4″ 262 pounds could probably play end or at linebacker on a 3-4 team.
Very productive, Kerrigan recorded 26 TFLs and 12.5 sacks this year.
Rams 14. OT Anthony Castonzo, Boston College Very experienced, tall (6′ 7″ 306 lbs) with long arms.
This is a little high for Castonzo, but the Rams need to get a tackle that could start as a rookie.
Dolphins 15. QB Cam Newton, Auburn (JR) The Dolphins need some talent at QB and Newton could be special.
Newton (6′ 6″ 250 lbs) runs like Vince Young, but has a much better arm than people give him credit for. The 2010 Heisman Trophy winner, Newton ran for 1,409 yards and 20 TDs and passed for an additional 2,589 yards and 28 TDs.
Jags 16. QB Ryan Mallett, Arkansas (JR) A giant (6’6″ 238 lbs) quarterback with a powerful, accurate arm.
I have noticed a strange “hitch” in his throw, so we will see who else notices this leading to the 2011 NFL Draft. Doesn’t throw well on the move, a pure pocket passer.
Patriots 17. OT Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin From Raiders: A nice sized (6′ 7″ 327 lbs) book-end.
Has dominated every defensive end he has came up against this year. Its almost unfair, an excellent team like the Pats with two
