  • 3 Round 2011 NFL Mock Draft With Trades

    Round 1
    1. Carolina Panthers: A.J. Green WR Georgia – The Panthers try to trade down, but that’s hard to do with the #1 pick. It comes down to Fairley or Green and they decide to get Jimmy Clausen a true #1 receiver. Green is the best receiver prospect since Calvin Johnson.
    2. Denver Broncos: Patrick Peterson CB LSU – Once again it is between Fairley or Peterson and the Broncos decide to replace Champ Bailey with the best corner prospect in the draft. Patrick Peterson should develop into a Champ Bailey type player.
    3. Buffalo Bills: Nick Fairley DT Auburn – Fairley can play DT or DE depending on the scheme which is perfect for Buffalo because they aren’t sure what they are going to run. Either way Fairley dominated all season long and has solidified his top 3 draft status.
    4. Cincinnati Bengals: Da’Quan Bowers DE Clemson – The Bengals take a high potential defensive end to help Carlos Dunlap put pressure on opposing QB’s. This should really help their defensive line and secondary.
    5. Arizona Cardinals: Robert Quinn OLB UNC – Quinn is still a top 5 prospect despite missing the entire season. That just shows how good he is. He gives the Cardinals a legit pass rusher in their 3-4 defense.
    6. Cleveland Browns: Julio Jones WR Alabama – The Browns need to add a #1 receiver. Julio Jones has everything needed to be exactly that. At 6’4 220 Jones has good downfield speed, good leaping ability, can make all the catches, and has the ego of a number 1 receiver.
    7. Houston Texans: Prince Amukamara CB Nebraska – TRADE: SF gets 1(11), 3(9) HOU gets: 1(7). The Texans trade up to get a true lockdown corner. Amukamara has the size, speed and technique to handle any NFL receiver, which will help in the AFC South.
    8. Tennessee Titans: Blaine Gabbert QB Missouri – The Titans are getting rid of Vince Young and need to find a new franchise QB. Gabbert is flying up draft boards right now and picking a QB will help secure Jeff Fischer’s job even longer.
    9. Dallas Cowboys: Marcel Dareus DE Alabama – Dareus is a great value here, especially for a 3-4 team like the Cowboys. Adding Dareus up front will only make DeMarcus Ware that much better.
    10. Washington Redskins: Jake Locker QB Washington – The Donovan McNabb experiment didn’t work, but the Redskins do have a high pick that could be used on a QB. Locker is very simlar to Jay Cutler and can learn the offense for a year like Cutler did in Denver for Mike Shanahan.
    11. San Francisco 49ers: Von Miller OLB Texas A&M - TRADE: SF gets 1(11), 3(9) HOU gets: 1(7). The Niners trade down and acquire more picks because they don’t feel there is a QB worth taking at 7. Instead they grab perhaps the best 3-4 OLB in the draft in Von Miller, who fills another big hole for this defense.
    12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Aldon Smith DE Missouri – TRADE MIN gets: 1(20), 2(19) TBB gets: 1(12), 5(8 ), 7(13). Tampa moves up to fill their team’s biggest hole. Adding a pure pass rusher like Aldon Smith to the young tackles they drafted last year will make this defense much better and will improve the secondary. Meanwhile Minnesota adds more picks after seeing Locker go just ahead of them.
    13. Detroit Lions: Akeem Ayers OLB UCLA – With no corners worth taking this high, the Lions fill another huge hole. Ayers is a versatile linebacker that will be a huge upgrade in Detroit.
    14. St. Louis Rams: Stephen Paea DT Oregon State – The Rams don’t have a big tackle that can stuff the run and with no receivers worth taking here they decide to add one. Paea will really help Chris Long on and the defensive front of the Rams.
    15. Miami Dolphins: Cam Newton QB Auburn – With Chad Henne falling out of favor in Miami, the Dolphins add a new franchise quarterback. Newton can learn the offense for a year or 2 while Henne and Pennington lead the Dolphins in the meantime.
    16. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ryan Kerrigan DE Purdue – Kerrigan is the best defensive end on the board and will fit nicely with Aaron Kampman and Tyson Alualu in Jacksonville.
    17. New England Patriots: JJ Watt DE Wisconsin – Watt has a great motor and fits the Patriots 3-4 scheme. He is a good value here that should have a nice impact right away for the Patriots.
    18. San Diego Chargers: Tyron Smith OT USC – Smith is flying up draft boards and could go even higher than this. He is strong for his size and is very athletic and should be a good right tackle for the Chargers.
    19. New York Giants: Mark Ingram RB Alabama – Ingram gives the Giants a powerful runner that can carry the load in the NFC East. He compliments Ahmad Bradshaw very well and allows them to move on from Brandon Jacobs.
    20. Minnesota Vikings: Mike Pouncey C/OG Florida - TRADE MIN gets: 1(20), 2(19) TBB gets: 1(12), 5(8 ), 7(13). The Vikings move down after missing out on Locker and fill a huge hole on the offensive line. Despite having Loadholt, McKinnie, and Hutchinson up front the Vikings still couldn’t open holes for Adrian Peterson. Pouncey should help.
    21. New England Patriots: Anthony Castonzo OT Boston College – TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 2(1), 2(32). With no receivers or nose tackles worth taking here, the Chiefs decide to move down a bit and acquire a couple 2nd round picks. Meanwhile the Patriots move in front of the Colts to get their hometown left tackle to protect Tom Brady.
    22. Indianapolis Colts: Nate Solder OT Colorado – Solder has the most potential of any tackle in round 1 to stay at left tackle. Protecting Peyton Manning is priority #1 and the Colts address it early.
    23. Philadelphia Eagles: Gabe Carimi OT Wisconsin – The Eagles really need to improve their offensive line. Adding a right tackle like Carimi in round 1 should go a long way in doing so.
    24. New Orleans Saints: Adrian Clayborn DE Iowa – Clayborn has a ton of upside and is worth a gamble at the end of round 1 for a team like the Saints. He has proven he can get to the quarterback against NFL caliber lineman like Carimi and if he can be more consistent, he will be a stud in New Orleans.
    25. Seattle Seahawks: Jimmy Smith CB Colorado – Smith will become a 1st round prospect by draft day and the Seahawks need a big physical corner that can deal with the Fitzgerald’s and Crabtree’s of the NFC West.
    26. New York Jets: Cameron Heyward DE Ohio State – Heyward saved his draft stock with a great performance at the Sugar Bowl. He is a great fit for a 5 technique defensive end for a team like the Jets.
    27. Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Harris CB Miami – The Ravens have needed a good young corner since Chris McCalister and Samari Rolle left. They finally address the nee din round one with a good all around corner in Harris.
    28. Arizona Cardinals: Ryan Mallett QB Arkansas – TRADE ARI gets: 1(28 ), 3(28 ) ATL gets: 2(6), 3(5). The Falcons don’t see anyone they are in love with here, so they slide down into round 2 and move way up in round 3. Meanwhile the Cardinals get their QB of the future. I expect them to sign Donovan McNabb this offseason, so Mallett can learn for a year.
    29. Chicago Bears: Derek Sherrod OT Mississippi State – Sherrod can play lef tor right tackle for the Bears, wherever they feel Chris Williams should play, Sherrod will play opposite.
    30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Cameron Jordan DE California – Jordan is a great value at the end of round 1 and is a very good fit for the Steelers aging, but still good defensive line.
    31. Green Bay Packers: Mikel Leshoure RB Illinois – Ryan Grant is getting older and is coming off a bad injury, and James Starks is best served playing 3rd down back. So the Packers add Leshoure who had a huge year and can do it all at the runningback spot.
    32. New England Patriots: Stefen Wisniewski C/OG Penn State – The Patriots upgrade their offensive line again, this time with the best center in the draft. Wisniewski could move to guard as well.

    Round 2
    1. Kansas City Chiefs: Jonathan Baldwin WR Pittsburgh - TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 2(1), 2(32). The Chiefs move down and add more picks, and still get the guy they were looking at, at 21. Baldwin is a big receiver that can be the #2 in KC.
    2. Tennessee Titans: Allen Bailey DT Miami – TRADE TEN gets: 2(2), 6(4) BUF gets: 2(7), 4(11). Tennessee moves up to get a great value for their 4-3 defense in round 2. Bailey is a 1st round talent that will go great with their young defensive ends.
    3. Cincinnati Bengals: Robert Sands SS West Virginia – With Reggie Nelson on the roster at FS, the Bengals add Robert Sands to play SS in round 2.
    4. Denver Broncos: Corey Luiget DT Illinois – Luiget can play tackle or end depending on what scheme John Fox decides to run in Denver.
    5. Cleveland Browns: Benjamin Ijalana OT Villanova – The Browns add Ijalana to play right tackle and to make the best offensive line in football.
    6. Atlanta Falcons: Justin Houston DE Georgia - TRADE ARI gets: 1(28 ), 3(28 ) ATL gets: 2(6), 3(5). Atlanta moves up in round 3 and gets the guy they were looking at in round 1. Houston is a very good pass rusher that is a fan favorite in Georgia and fills a big need.
    7. Buffalo Bills: Pat Devlin QB Delaware - TRADE TEN gets: 2(2), 6(4) BUF gets: 2(7), 4(11). Buffalo turns their 6th into a 4th rounder, and gets their QB of the future. Devlin can learn from Ryan Fitzpatrick for a year before taking over.
    8. Dallas Cowboys: Aaron Williams CB Texas – The Cowboys secondary was pitiful last season and they add a good fluid corner to help prevent getting beat over the top. Williams is a hometown guy that will get the job done in Dallas.
    9. Washington Redskins: Leonard Hankerson WR Miami – Hankerson is a big receiver that will compliment Santana Moss, and Anthony Armstrong nicely in D.C.
    10. Houston Texans: Phil Taylor NT Baylor – Taylor is a huge nose tackle that can anchor this new 3-4 and allow the pass rushers to make plays.
    11. Minnesota Vikings: Rahim Moore FS UCLA – After going offensive line in round 1, the Vikings address their secondary in round 2 with a ball hawking free safety.
    12. San Diego Chargers: Martez Wilson ILB Illinois – TRADE SDC gets: 2(12), 4(11) DET gets: 2(18 ), 3(25). San Diego upgrades their front seven with the best inside linebacker in the draft, while Detroit turns their 4th rounder into a 3rd rounder.
    13. Denver Broncos: Jerrell Powe NT Ole Miss – TRADE DEN gets: 2(13) SF gets: Kyle Orton, 2012 4th. The Niners get a quick fix at QB, and a mid round pick in 2012. They can get a QB of the future next year. Meanwhile the Broncos make Tim Tebow their quarterback, and get a Nose Tackle to anchor their defense.
    14. Denver Broncos: Bruce Carter OLB UNC – Carter is a versatile linebacker that can play outside in a 3-4 or 4-3.
    15. St. Louis Rams: Kyle Rudolph TE Notre Dame – Rudolph is a first round talent that will help Sam Bradford immensely. With Donnie Avery returning this year, the Rams don’t go WR early.
    16. Oakland Raiders: DeMarcus Love OT Arkansas – The Raiders will sign Vince Young this offseason guaranteed, so they get a right tackle to help protect him.
    17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Torrey Smith WR Maryland – If the Jags lose Mike Sims-Walker this offseason, they will need to add a wide receiver early. Smith is a good value in round 2.
    18. Detroit Lions: Brandon Burton CB Utah - TRADE SDC gets: 2(12), 4(11) DET gets: 2(18 ), 3(25). The Lions get a much needed corner in round 2 to upgrade their secondary. Burton is underrated corner that will really help the secondary.
    19. Philadelphia Eagles: Ras-I Dowling CB Virginia – TRADE PHI gets: 2(19), 2012 3rd MIN gets: Kevin Kolb. MIN got 2(19) by trading down in round 1 with TBB. Philly trades Kolb so he can start somewhere, and gets a big a corner that can help Asante Samuel handle the receivers of the NFC East. Minnesota gets their franchise QB after addressing offensive line and secondary earlier.
    20. New York Giants: Marcus Cannon OT/OG TCU – Cannon is a mammoth that will greatly improve the Giants running game whether he plays right tackle or guard.
    21. Indianapolis Colts: Drake Nevis DT LSU – Nevis is undersized, but he is fast and makes plays in the running, and passing game for the defense. Sounds like a Colts players.
    22. Philadelphia Eagles: Greg Jones LB Michigan State – Jones can play inside or outside linebacker for the Eagles and fills another big need for them as they revamp their defense.
    23. Kansas City Chiefs: Jabal Sheard OLB Pittsburgh – KC gets another outside linebacker that can play opposite Tamba Hali.
    24. New Orleans Saints: Casey Matthews OLB Oregon – Matthews may have made himself a 2nd or 3rd round pick with his performance in the National Championship, and the Saints need an outside linebacker badly.
    25. Seattle Seahawks: Jurrell Casey DT USC – Seattle has productive ends, but they can’t say the same for their tackles. Casey is a good value here in round 2 and reunites with Pete Carroll.
    26. San Diego Chargers: Muhammed Wilkerson DE Temple – More help for the front seven as the Chargers add a 5 technique DE in round 2.
    27. Baltimore Ravens: Rodney Hudson C/OG Florida State – Matt Birk is getting old, and Hudson can play guard before taking over at center for the Ravens.
    28. Atlanta Falcons: Titus Young WR Boise State – Young is a play making receiver that can take the top off of defenses, which Atlanta really lacks.
    29. Chicago Bears: Mason Foster OLB Washington – Foster is an upgrade over Pisa Tino…… And adds some youth to the Bears linebackers.
    30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Curtis Brown CB Texas – The corners are the weakness of the Steelers defense, so they add one early in the 2011 draft.
    31. Green Bay Packers: Davon House CB New Mexico State – House has a lot of potential and can learn from Charles Woodson while Tramon Williams plays the other corner spot.
    32. Kansas City Chiefs: Sione Fua NT Stanford – TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 2(1), 2(32). Kansas City lacks a big nose tackle to anchor their 3-4 defense, so they get one at the end of round 2.

    Round 3
    1. Carolina Panthers: Marvin Austin DT UNC – Austin has the talent and potential to go in the 1st round at a position of need for the Panthers, and is a hometown kid. Sounds like a 3rd round pick to me.
    2. Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Williams RB Virginia Tech – Williams should have stayed in school because of the lack of need for running backs this year. He goes in round 3 after a disappointing junior season and the Bengals may have the steal of the draft.
    3. Denver Broncos: Deunta Williams S UNC – More help for the defense as the Broncos add a young safety to learn from and play with Brian Dawkins.
    4. Buffalo Bills: Chris Hairston OT Clemson – Whoever plays QB for the Bills this season will need a new left tackle protecting him.
    5. Atlanta Falcons: Clint Boling OL Georgia – TRADE ARI gets: 1(28 ), 3(28 ) ATL gets: 2(6), 3(5). Boling can play both guard, and both tackle positions for the Falcons.
    6. Cleveland Browns: Jeremy Beal OLB Oklahoma – Beal doesn’t have the size to play defensive end, or the cover skills to play linebacker, but his potential is worth a shot for a 3-4 team in round 3.
    7. Dallas Cowboys: Darius Morris OT Temple – At worst the Cowboys get a versatile lineman that can play tackle or guard for them in Morris.
    8. New Orleans Saints: Daniel Thomas RB Kansas State – Thomas is a powerful running back that can replace Pierre Thomas for the Saints.
    9. San Francisco 49ers: Johnny Patrick CB Louisville – TRADE: SF gets 1(11), 3(9) HOU gets: 1(7). After adding Von Miller and Kyle Orton, the Niners fill their next biggest hole at corner in round 3.
    10. New England Patriots: Rashard Carmichael CB Virginia Tech – The Patriots still need another corner and Carmichael is a good value here in round 3.
    11. Detroit Lions: Kris O’Dowd C USC – O’Dowd will improve the running game whether he is playing guard or center for the Lions.
    12. San Francisco 49ers: Nate Irving ILB NC State – The Niners could use a linebacker to play next to Patrick Willis.
    13. Tennessee Titans: John Moffit OG Wisconsin – Moffit is a good run blocker that will improve the Titans running game a lot.
    14. Indianapolis Colts: Kenny Tate S Maryland – TRADE IND gets: 3(14) STL gets: Joseph Addai. St. Louis gets a proven back that can take some of the load off of Steven Jackson and prolong his career, while being the 3rd down back as well. Bob Sanders just can’t stay healthy, so the Colts get a long-term replacement, and they continue to get younger by making Donald Brown the starter.
    15. Miami Dolphins: DeMarco Murray RB Oklahoma – Murray is a quick back that can catch and is a good compliment to Ronnie Brown.
    16. Jacksonville Jaguars: Andy Dalton QB TCU – Dalton is an athletic quarterback that is a winner. He can learn under David Garrard for a couple years.
    17. Oakland Raiders: Jalil Brown CB Colorado – If Asomugha leaves, the Raiders will need to bring in a couple of guys to replace him, and Brown is a start.
    18. San Diego Chargers: Jordan Todman RB UConn – Ryan Matthews wasn’t very successful last year so the Chargers bring in another young back to join him.
    19. New York Giants: Christian Ballard DT Iowa – Ballard has the potential of a 1st rounder but looks like a 3rd round talent.
    20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Quinton Carter S Oklahoma – The Bucs need to find a replacement for Tanard Jackson.
    21. Philadelphia Eagles: Quan Sturdivant ILB UNC – Philly gets another much needed young linebacker.
    22. Kansas City Chiefs: Orlando Franklin OL Miami – Franklin is a versatile lineman that at the worst adds depth in KC.
    23. Denver Broncos: Dont’a Hightower ILB Alabama – TRADE DEN gets: 3(23) IND gets: D.J. Williams. The rebuilding continues in Denver as they add a young versatile inside linebacker to replace Williams after trading him to Indy. Meanwhile Indy makes a huge upgrade for their front seven.
    24. New Orleans Saints: Nathan Ederle QB Idaho – The Saints add a QB that can develop under Drew Brees much like Tony Romo developed in Dallas.
    25. Detroit Lions: Kelvin Sheppard ILB LSU - TRADE SDC gets: 2(12), 4(11) DET gets: 2(18), 3(25). Adding Ayers and Sheppard to this defense will really improve the front seven and will let DeAndre Levy play OLB.
    26. New York Jets: DeAndre McDaniel S Clemson – The Jets could use an upgrade over Brodney Pool.
    27. Baltimore Ravens: Greg Little WR UNC – Joe Flacco will welcome a young replacement for TJ Houshmanzedah with open arms.
    28. Arizona Cardinals: DJ Williams TE Arkansas - TRADE ARI gets: 1(28 ), 3(28 ) ATL gets: 2(6), 3(5). Williams follows Mallett to Arizona to make the transition easier, and fill a big hole for the Cards.
    29. Chicago Bears: Austin Pettis WR Boise State – Pettis gives the Bears a bigger receiver to compliment Knox, Bennett, and Hester.
    30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Derek Hall OT Stanford – Hall gives the Steelers a young option at right tackle.
    31. Green Bay Packers: Will Hill S Florida – Hill gives the Packers a better replacement for Atari Bigby.
    32. New England Patriots: Dwayne Harris WR ECU – Harris is a play maker at receiver that can help replace Randy Moss in New England.

    So the Rams three biggest needs (WR, OLB, DE) are ingnored in the first 3 rounds? Donnie Avery is coming back, but he is clearly not the answer. He can't be trusted as anything more than a #3 reciever.

    I do like your picks, but you just can't overlook all three of our biggest needs.

      Would love this Lions draft. However, I would rather have Brandon Harris in RD 1. I think Ayers plays way too soft and I really like Harris, he is a gamer.

        Solid eagles mock, they won't and don't have to draft 2 LBs in the 1st 3 rounds though.


        • #5
          solid for KC


          • #6
            Oh my. If the Phins draft ended up like that I'd probably end up streaking! Awesome Phins draft!! That's about as perfect as I could hope for! +REP!

            Dolphins Dream Draft: 1. Jaylon Smith 2. Artie Burns 3. Landon Turner


            • #7
              Switch the Browns 3rd rounder from Beal to Ballard and I'd love it


              • #8
                11. San Francisco 49ers: Von Miller OLB Texas A&M - ..... they grab perhaps the best 3-4 OLB in the draft in Von Miller, who fills another big hole for this defense.
                This could happen if & only if:

                a) Miller wows all the scouts at the Combine & all star games
                b) the 9ers don't re-sign Manny Lawson, he was in his contract yr.

                BTW D'onta Hightower is staying in school in 2011.


                • #9
                  I have to ignore the draft and just say it is not a lock that vince young goes to oakland. In fact that will not happen at all.


                  • #10
                    I hate when people posts Mocks that are so jumbled up it hurts to try and read them.


                    • #11
                      We're not going to take a RB in the first round. I like Leshoure more than Ingram, but we don't need a runningback that much to take one in the first. 3rd or 4th round would be much better. Possibly as high as the second round if Leshoure fell or Ryan Williams, but no RB in the first round. Justin Houston would be perfect there.

                      Second round is ok I guess. I don't know much about House, but we could use a corner. Although if we don't get an OLB in the first I'd want Beal there.

                      Third round is bad, we don't need another safety. We just took one in the third last year. Charlie Peprah has played very well filling in too. Between Perah, Burnett, and maybe Bigby we'll be fine there. A third rounder is not going to improve the position.


                      • #12
                        Not my ideal Denver draft, but you did a great job of getting value at each pick.

                        WELCOME REALITY


                        • #13
                          Im okay with the first two saints picks although I have guys I would rather have at both picks. running back and qb just arent needs at all.

                          Saints 2014 draft wish list:
                          - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
                          - Corner or Wideout in the first
                          - No reaching
                          - No Kelvin Benjamin


                          • #14
                            really good ATL draft and I love the trade. I'm impressed.

                              Horrible mock for SF trading down is just wrong.
