2011 NFL Mock Draft: Newton Not Number One, Ingram Still Top Fifteen

By Editorial Staff
3 of 6

Robert Quinn – DE North Carolina
Ray Edwards will more than likely depart once free agency begins. The Vikings will need to upgrade their defensive line and Quinn fits perfectly into their defense. He’s 6’5″ 270 lbs. and can be a force opposite Jared Allen.

Ryan Kerrigan – DE Purdue
A year after Drafting Ndamukong Suh, the Lions know it’s necessary to draft more defensive line help. Kerrigan could become a huge play maker early due to Suh drawing double teams almost every snap.

Julio Jones – WR Alabama
I’m a huge Sam Bradford fan. After going to college in Oklahoma for two and a half years, I watched a lot of OU games. He single-handedly turned St. Louis around. Julio Jones is the best fit for the Rams and will instantly make an impact on an offense that had many no-names last season. Bradford excelled with what he had, now imagine what he can do with Jones. I’m very excited about this pick.

Mark Ingram – RB Alabama
Mark Ingram has fallen to New England and even in New Orleans in some mock drafts. He would fit well with the Dolphins in their scheme, especially since Ricky Williams is aged and Ronnie Brown hasn’t been as productive. Ingram is the best RB in the draft and his presence would help Chad Henne a lot. If Henne earns the starting  job.

Ryan Mallet – QB Arkansas
Mallett has tremendous arm strength. His body resembles that of Joe Flacco. He is a pocket passer and doesn’t throw well on the run. With improvements, he could be an elite passer.
