2011 NFL Mock Draft: Round Seven

Last update: Thursday, April 28, 2011, 3:30 PM. Final update.
Next update: Thurs evening. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

This 2011 NFL Mock Draft order is based on the official 2011 NFL Draft Order.

  1. Green Bay Packers: Chris L. Rucker, CB/FS, Michigan State
    The Packers don't have many needs, but every team could always use secondary depth.


  2. Detroit Lions: Jamie Harper, RB, Clemson
    Detroit has to find a reliable power complement for Jahvid Best, who looks like he'll be banged up often throughout his career.

  3. Buffalo Bills: Matt Murphy, G, UNLV
    More offensive line help for the Bills. They've worked out Matt Murphy several times.

  4. Cincinnati Bengals: Josh Bynes, LB, Auburn
    Dhani Jones, a 33-year-old free agent, struggled in 2010. Too many Febreze commercials.

  5. New York Jets: Chykie Brown, CB, Texas
    The Jets have shown some interest in Chykie Brown. It never hurts to have enough talented cornerbacks.

  6. Seattle Seahawks: Stevan Ridley, RB, LSU
    It wouldn't hurt to bring in someone to push Marshawn Lynch.

    Stevan Ridley somehow received a second- to third-round grade from the draft advisory committee back in January. Let's see how accurate they were.



  7. Atlanta Falcons: David Arkin, G, Missouri State
    Atlanta will need some help up front if some of their free agent linemen leave.

  8. San Francisco 49ers: Andre Smith, TE, Virginia Tech
    The 49ers have been looking at lots of tight ends in the past month. They'll probably take one late in the 2011 NFL Draft.

  9. Tennessee Titans: Ryan Jones, CB, NW Missouri State
    Cortland Finnegan is entering his contract year, so the Titans may look for a late-round prospect who could compete for a job in 2012.

  10. Washington Redskins: Evan Royster, RB, Penn State
    Mike Shanahan's next late-round 1,000-yard rusher?

  11. Houston Texans: Cheta Ozougwu, DE/OLB, Rice
    Don't be surprised if the Texans draft multiple rush linebackers for their new 3-4 defense.

  12. Minnesota Vikings: Scott Lutrus, OLB, Connecticut
    Ben Leber is a free agent, so he'll have to be re-signed or replaced.



  13. St. Louis Rams: Byron Maxwell, CB, Clemson
    The Rams haven't addressed their secondary yet in this 2011 NFL Mock Draft.

  14. Miami Dolphins: T.J. Yates, QB, North Carolina
    The Dolphins won't take a quarterback early. Instead, they'll sign a veteran to compete with Chad Henne, and they'll also select a signal-caller late in the 2011 NFL Draft.

  15. Miami Dolphins: Anthony Gaitor, CB, Florida International
    The Dolphins were so desperate for cornerback help last year that they had Al Harris play three games.

  16. Oakland Raiders: Aldrick Robinson, WR, SMU
    It wouldn't be an NFL Draft if the Raiders didn't obtain a speedy receiver.

  17. Dallas Cowboys: Keith Darbut, DE/OLB, Baldwin-Wallace
    The Cowboys would probably like to add a player to push the disappointing Anthony Spencer.

  18. New York Giants: Ollie Ogbu, DT, Penn State
    The defensive tackle position can be addressed, and the Giants have shown interest in Ollie Ogbu.

  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jeff Maehl, WR, Oregon
    In the wake of Arrelious Benn's injury, the Buccaneers will probably address the receiver position late in the 2011 NFL Draft.


  20. Kansas City Chiefs: Dane Sanzenbacher, WR, Ohio State
    It would not surprise me at all if the Chiefs double dipped at receiver in the 2011 NFL Draft. There's just no talent at the position beyond Dwayne Bowe.

  21. Washington Redskins: Andrew Jackson, G, Fresno State
    The Redskins will have to use multiple picks in the 2011 NFL Draft to fix their offensive line.

  22. Baltimore Ravens: Alex Linnenkohl, C, Oregon State
    Matt Birk, 35, is entering his contract year. He offered to groom his own replacement.

  23. New Orleans Saints: Ronald Johnson, WR, USC
    The Saints don't need a receiver, but Ronald Johnson provides good value in the middle of the seventh round.

  24. Philadelphia Eagles: Brian Rolle, OLB, Ohio State
    Considering their depth issues at the position, it'll be a surprise if the Eagles don't spend multiple picks on linebackers.

  25. St. Louis Rams: Jermale Hines, SS, Ohio State
    More secondary help for the Rams. They appear to like Darian Stewart, but some competition wouldn't hurt.

  26. Atlanta Falcons: Mike Mohamed, ILB, California
    The Falcons have looked at a bunch of linebackers this draft season, including Mike Mohamed. He'd provide some much-needed depth.

  27. Atlanta Falcons: Justin Rogers, CB/KR, Richmond
    In a division with Drew Brees and an improving Josh Freeman, the Falcons will need as many talented corners as possible.



  28. San Francisco 49ers: Steven Friday, DE/OLB, Virginia Tech
    This is similar to Atlanta's situation with defensive ends - if the 49ers don't acquire a rush linebacker until Day 3, they may double dip at the position.

  29. Pittsburgh Steelers: Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia
    I haven't given the Steelers a skill-position player yet. Noel Devine is great value in the middle of Round 7.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Mark Herzlich, ILB, Boston College
    Mark Herzlich can offer depth at inside linebacker if Nick Barnett is released. I hope Herzlich goes higher than this because of what he's overcome. Herzlich looks pretty stiff in coverage, but he can improve. He's definitely worth a shot in Rounds 5-7.

  31. San Diego Chargers: Eddie Jones, DE/OLB, Texas
    The Chargers have to spend a late-round selection or two on their abysmal special teams.

  32. Miami Dolphins: Darren Evans, RB, Virginia Tech
    Another late-round running back just in case the Dolphins can't sign DeAngelo Williams.

  33. Minnesota Vikings: Doug Hogue, OLB, Syracuse
    Pick a position, any position. The Vikings pretty much need help everywhere.

  34. Philadelphia Eagles: Derek Hall, OT, Stanford
    A late-round project for Howard Mudd to work with.

  35. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Joshua Portis, QB, California-PA
    A late-round quarterback just in case the Buccaneers manage to trade Josh Johnson once the lockout ends.

  36. San Francisco 49ers: Keith Williams, G, Nebraska
    The 49ers haven't addressed their offensive line yet in this 2011 NFL Mock Draft.

  37. Philadelphia Eagles: Darvin Adams, WR, Auburn
    The Eagles have worked out several receivers during the draft season, so they may spend a selection on that position in Rounds 5-7.

  38. Oakland Raiders: Eric Gordon, LB, Michigan State
    Thomas Howard is leaving, so the Raiders may spend a late-round pick on a linebacker for depth.

  39. Seattle Seahawks: Nathan Enderle, QB, Idaho
    Charlie Whitehurst started two games in 2010. He was abysmal in one, and was pretty average in the other. Seattle may look into drafting a quarterback to compete with Whitehurst as Matt Hasselbeck's successor.

  40. New Orleans Saints: Mistral Raymond, S, South Florida
    The Saints like to draft defensive backs. Because they don't have many selections, I haven't been able to give them one yet.

  41. Carolina Panthers: J.T. Thomas, OLB, West Virginia
    Strongside linebacker James Anderson is a free agent. The Panthers need to make sure they're OK if they can't retain him.

  42. Buffalo Bills: Eric Hagg, S, Nebraska
    Donte Whitner is a free agent and it doesn't sound like he'll be coming back. This draft pick is for depth purposes.

  43. Cincinnati Bengals: Justin Boren, G, Ohio State
    The Bengals would be smart to bring in someone to push Andre Smith.

  44. Denver Broncos: Schuylar Oordt, TE, Northern Iowa
    John Fox loves his blocking tight ends - though unlike Josh McDaniels, he knows he can wait until Round 7 to get one.

  45. Cleveland Browns: De'Aundre Reed, DE, Arizona
    I'll be pretty surprised if the Browns don't double dip at some of the key 4-3 positions; they don't have anything at defensive end.

  46. Arizona Cardinals: Chas Henry, P, Florida
    Arizona punter Ben Graham is a 37-year-old free agent. Why not find a replacement in the seventh round?

  47. San Francisco 49ers: Kai Forbath, K, UCLA
    Another special teams upgrade for an NFC West team. Joe Nedney is 38 and keeps getting injured.

  48. Tennessee Titans: Pat Devlin, QB, Delaware
    The only quarterback the Titans currently have on the roster is Rusty Smith. That's not good.

  49. Dallas Cowboys: Da'Rel Scott, RB, Maryland
    I don't expect Marion Barber to be with the Cowboys in 2011. If I'm right, Dallas will be looking for someone new in the backfield.

  50. Washington Redskins: Chris White, ILB, Mississippi State
    It's hard to imagine Rocky McIntosh sticking around after struggling in the 3-4. Meanwhile, London Fletcher turns 36 in May.

    If you're looking for details about McIntosh playing poorly in the 3-4 - a Redskins homer in the comment board questioned this - note that opposing quarterbacks completed 91.5 percent of their passes against McIntosh in 2010, good for second-worst amongst all inside linebackers. McIntosh was also tied for sixth in missed tackles amongst all linebackers (both inside and outside), finishing only three behind the leader, Will Witherspoon. Furthermore, McIntosh surrendered 407 yards after the catch; this was third-worst amongst all inside linebackers, with Kevin Burnett and Paris Lenon topping the charts in that dubious category.

  51. Houston Texans: Ryan Donahue, P, Iowa
    Mr. Irrelevant is a punter! Houston's current punter, Matt Turk, turns 43 in June. He's also a free agent coming off a poor year.

Im a UW fan and love Locker but no way will the Hawks take him. Seattle will look to sighn a guy like Orton or trade for Cobb. They will take the best player on the board. If they lose to the Rams and the Niners beat the Cards the Hawks move ahead of the Niners and im guessing the go D-line with there 1st pick unless one of the 2 Top corners is still on the board.

Walter,

I'm sure you heard Peter King is reporting that A.Luck is staying put! "He would be a fool if he did" and his father being from NE Ohio as myself is stating that he will declare.....

By the way bdbdc....C.McCoy is the feature and future QB in Cleveland and after Mangini gets let go, Oh I say by Tuesday of next week and we introduce J.Gruden or the Big Show comes out of the suite as the HC they will cement my comments.....

Love the drafts, check them out every Thursday. But, being a Cardinals fan I disagree with the first round pick and the description. You are right that they need to strengthen their pass rush, but by watching the destructive QB carousel this year, they definitely need to draft a QB. I think that Newton would be the perfect pick for them if he comes out, especially if the Cards can pick up Mcnabb in the off-season to help him out with that transition. That way they come out with a tremendous talent without the need to start him immediately. As for Wisenhunt being on the hot seat. There is no way he is, maybe next year, and maybe his whole staff is on the hot seat, but he just took the cards to more playoff games then they have been since they moved to AZ and in just his third year is 3rd on the Cards winning list for coaches.
Love the drafts though, keep up the good work!

I need my Browns to hopefully have a chance @ the Prince or Peterson in the 1st if not I'll settle for J.Jones.....

2nd Round: I need Cam Hayward or G. Carimi or J.Crick

3rd Round: I need Blake Gideon or J. Hines out of OSU

Note: No way do the Pats pass on M. Ingram if he's available in the 1st!

I haven't always like your Bengal's picks but these (12/30)are right on. T.Ocho was probably the cause of the Bengals (and Carson Palmer's) problems. They can't seem to run the right routes anymore. Jerome Simpson is an athletic freak with hands as big as peach baskets. Coupled with AJ Green, CP should be able to dominate most defenses. The Bengals want to be run first team and Benson is a good start. But the Bengal's should have two hammers and Mikel Leshoure should make a good back and blocker. Reggie Nelson might possibly be a good pick-up if Mike Zimmer can work his usual rehab but an additional safety could be good insurance.

the browns could well take a qb 1st round. colt mccoy showed his true colours last weekend. 3 picks and looked like crap. i think he's a college player who can't make it at the next level

@onesy Read the write-ups. If Webb struggles in the finale, the Vikings could maybe reconsider. I had no idea Webb and Brady were the same pick. People will look at Locker and say he was on a bad team and will look back on the 2009 season. Hot Rod Taylor is Day 3 at best. The guys only 6ft 1in. Plus, he runs an option offense, although i wouldnt be surprised to see him go in round 3.

I know Sheard does with that assault, but Baldwin in 2009 was made the Big East All-Academic Team and Fua missed the 2007 season while on a church mission. Pioli would love to have Baldwin and Fua, but I see your point on Sheard

Why no mention of Tyrod Taylor? did u see the virginia tech/florida state game? btw why is jake locker so high. I wouldn't take him until at best the 3rd round. He has done nothing to impress. and the vikings won't take a qb first round. joe webb is without a doubt the qb of the future, showing that not all the best players are picked 1st in the nfl draft. remember a guy named tom brady (exactly the same pick number as joe webb). freaky

two of the three guys you have the Chiefs taking have character issues. Scott Pioli has shown an affinity for drafting high character guys.
