2011 NFL Mock Draft Version 2

      It’s been a few weeks since my last attempt. Player’s stocks have risen and fallen. Here’s how it see it as of this morning. I will again post a few observations after the chart.

This scenario works out well for the Lions as they have their choice of Amukamara and Bowers. I would be happy with either despite Bowers’ knee concerns. The only way I would be happier is if they somehow traded up to get Patrick Peterson.
I thought about jumping on the 5 QB in the first round band wagon, but I think it will involve trading which I won’t try to predict.
Mark Ingram is free falling, but I think he will get taken in the first. He would offer great value late in the first if some team is willing to take the risk with his health.
There is still tremendous talent available, so keep an eye on New England to trade its 2nd round pick. Some team will want a QB, and the Pats love to acquire more draft picks.
