Draft 2011: 2-Round Final Mock

Wednesday, April 27, 2011




13. Lions: Anthony Castonzo, tackle, Boston College.

Detroit's No. 1 draft priority must be to keep Matthew Stafford healthy.

14. Rams: Prince Amukamara, cornerback, Nebraska.

St. Louis can't pass on a falling Amukamara; he'll be atop their board.

15. Dolphins: Mike Pouncey, guard, Florida.

The Fins covet a guard that can both pull and play with in-line power.

16. Jaguars: Christian Ponder, quarterback, Florida State.

Jacksonville will continue to plod along offensively with David Garrard.

17. Patriots: Cameron Jordan, defensive end, Cal.

Jordan draws some comparisons to Richard Seymour as a 3-4 end.

18. Chargers: J.J. Watt, defensive end, Wisconsin.

The Bolts want more pass rush at their right defensive end position.

19. Giants: Corey Liuget, defensive tackle, Illinois.

Liuget could form a dangerous tandem with Chris Canty on the inside.

20. Bucs: Da'Quan Bowers, defensive end, Clemson.

A risky pick, but the Bucs swing for the fences at a major sore spot.

21. Chiefs: Gabe Carimi, tackle, Wisconsin.

Carimi is the ideal bookend tackle to play across from Branden Albert.

22. Colts: Derek Sherrod, tackle, Mississippi State.

The Colts upgrade Peyton Manning's pass protection with a safe pick.

23. Eagles: Jimmy Smith, cornerback, Colorado.

Smith could be the missing piece Philly needs for a Super Bowl berth.

24. Saints: Jabaal Sheard, defensive end, Pittsburgh.

Big East Defensive Player of the Year can spark the Saints' front seven.

25. Seahawks: Andy Dalton, quarterback, TCU.

A reach, but it may not necessarily be the Seahawks making this pick.

26. Ravens: Ryan Kerrigan, defensive end, Purdue.

Kerrigan is everything Paul Kruger was supposed to be two years ago.

27. Falcons: Danny Watkins, guard, Baylor.

Watkins is pro-ready, and Atlanta risks losing three of its starting front five.

28. Patriots: Brooks Reed, linebacker, Arizona.

Reed's best projection is 3-4 outside 'backer, a weak position in Foxboro.

29. Bears: Marvin Austin, defensive tackle, North Carolina.

It's no secret that the Bears are high on Austin to replace Tommie Harris.

30. Jets: Muhammad Wilkerson, defensive end, Temple.

Wilkerson can collapse the pocket at New York's biggest area of need.

31. Steelers: Phil Taylor, defensive tackle, Baylor.

Pittsburgh solidifies its aging front line with a run-stopping behemoth.

32. Packers: James Carpenter, tackle, Alabama.

Carpenter starts at guard in year one, and can eventually kick to tackle.
