  1. New England Patriots: Rodney Hudson, G/C, Florida State
    Fits the Patriots mold perfectly as an offensive lineman with his instincts, football IQ, versatility, athleticism and character.

  2. Buffalo Bills: Tyron Smith, T, USC
    The Bills need to select a left tackle to protect their franchise quarterback.

  3. Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
    The Bengals can get a quarterback on the cheap in Round 2, and they could care less about Mallett's character concerns.

  4. Denver Broncos: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
    The Broncos have Demaryius Thomas, but he's far from a polished receiver and Floyd will make an immediate impact.

  5. Cleveland Browns: Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
    The Browns need to surround Colt McCoy with weapons if he's going to pan out.

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
    Rudolph has durability problems, but he's too talented to pass up on at this point for a team that needs a tight end.

  7. Tennessee Titans: Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
    Corner is one of the top needs for the Titans, and while Williams can be inconsistent he has a great skill set and would be a good player in Tennessee.

  8. Dallas Cowboys: Mike Pouncey, G, Florida
    The Cowboys need to get younger on the offensive line and Pouncey's an underrated prospect. He struggled at center, but his best position is guard. He has the potential to go in the top 25 of the 2011 NFL Draft.

  9. Washington Redskins: Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois
    Leshoure is a big back and tough to bring down. The Redskins need to move on from Clinton Portis.

  10. Houston Texans: Stephen Paea, NT, Oregon State
    Paea has good weight room strength and a nice motor, but he doesn't get much penetration and he has short arms.

  11. Minnesota Vikings: Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State
    Leslie Frazier commented on drafting a quarterback early. Christian Ponder might be worth the gamble here.

  12. Detroit Lions: Anthony Castonzo, T, Boston College
    Will the Lions finally come around in admitting they need to upgrade at offensive tackle, or will they continue to not put pieces around Matt Stafford to protect him?

  13. San Francisco 49ers: Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
    Taylor has a high upside and the 49ers are drafting on value here - not need.

  14. Denver Broncos: Cam Heyward, DE, Ohio State
    I don't care about Heyward's performance in the Sugar Bowl - his big game is exactly why I dislike him as a prospect. He's too wildly inconsistent. One big game with Heyward means nothing, and that's why he is going in the second round.

  15. St. Louis Rams: Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
    The Rams will focus on building their defense, and it all starts up front.

  16. Oakland Raiders: Quan Sturdivant, OLB, North Carolina
    Sturdivant is an inside linebacker at North Carolina, but he is more of a weakside linebacker in the NFL. He doesn't have very good size and he struggles to stack and shed. The Raiders have a hole here next to Rolando McClain.

  17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Marcus Cannon, G, TCU
    Cannon is a talented player who is a mauling run blocker. He's big, and as long as his character checks out he could be in play here for the Jaguars.

  18. San Diego Chargers: Gabe Carimi, T, Wisconsin
    Carimi fills a big need for the Chargers at right tackle, and I'm not sold on his draft stock rising in the last month.

  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nate Irving, ILB, N.C. State
    The Bucs' second biggest need next to defensive end (besides another defensive end) is inside linebacker. Barrett Ruud is likely as good as gone, and the Bucs want a thumper in the middle of their defense.

  20. New York Giants: Jurrell Casey, DT, USC
    Defensive tackle is a big need in New York, and Casey can be a disruptive force. He is the interior pass rusher they lack.

  21. Seattle Seahawks: Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech
    Williams had a disappointing season, but there's no doubt in my mind he's a first-round talent.

  22. Indianapolis Colts: Greg Jones, OLB, Michigan State
    Jones fits the mold of what the Colts like in their Tampa-2 defense, and he's an absolute steal at this point in the 2011 NFL Draft.

  23. Philadelphia Eagles: Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
    Smith fills a need at corner for the Eagles and fits their scheme which stresses a lot of man coverage.

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Johnny Patrick, CB, Louisville
    Patrick's stock is on the rise, and he is a good value here in the second round.

  25. Green Bay Packers: Mason Foster, LB, Washington
    Foster would play inside linebacker in the Packers 3-4 defense. I'm a big fan of his - I love his tenacity and competitive fire.

  26. New York Jets: Jeremy Beal, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    The Jets need to be looking for rush linebackers in the 2011 NFL Draft. They need guys that can make plays.

  27. Baltimore Ravens: Martez Wilson, ILB, Illinois
    Wilson has a high upside, but he is coming off an ACL tear in 2009. Talent-wise, he's the best inside linebacker elligible for the 2011 NFL Draft.

  28. New Orleans Saints: Chris Carter, OLB, Fresno State
    Carter is an underrated prospect out of Fresno State. He's a physical specimen who plays up to his abilities.

  29. Chicago Bears: Ben Ijalana, G, Villanova
    Ijalana would bring a lot of talent to the Bears' offensive line. They need to do a better job of protecting Cutler and creating running lanes.

  30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
    I still like Dowling, but his stock seems to be falling lately and he ends up in the Steelers' lap here.

  31. Atlanta Falcons: Sam Acho, DE, Texas
    The Falcons could improve their defensive end rotation, and Acho has a little upside. I like his athleticism and burst.

  32. New England Patriots: Curtis Brown, CB, Texas
    The Patriots can never have enough cornerbacks on their roster, and Brown is a very talented prospect.

You really think that the Dolphins will, after trading for an elite No. 1 receiver last year and watching Davone Bess have a breakout season, spend their first rounder on another receiver? That's ridiculous.

Really? You have the Browns taking Torrey Smith from Maryland that high in the 2nd round? Is this a real Mock Draft or just a joke? If this is a joke then that Browns pick is the punchline. Smith is at best a 4th rounder.

You sir are a moron, and judging by the comments below, it looks like that's the consensus belief.

matt, you are out of your mind and should plan out your picks a little better. You have the titans taking prince, and then williams. Back to back CB? I'll give you the prince pick, but to come back and say a second CB in round 2? unless verner or mcCourty are replacing hope at safety, i dont understand what you are doing.

To the post below, I don't think they want Greg Jones because he is a local boy. They want him because he would be a good value as a second round pick that would fill a need. He was also quite productive in his college years and, importantly, he hasn't had the off field issues some of the other LBs have had.

To Lionsfan: that's probably the best strategy, ignoring what may happen in free agency for the moment. They are much more likely to get a LB that can contribute in the second round then they will a CB in this draft. So Round 1 CB (Jenkins/Harris depending on work outs) and round 2 LB. Of course, Lion's management could surprise the heck out of us and get two LBs (Ayers, Jones) if free agency doesn't work out.

Redskins is an interesting team to pick for. I could see them taking Mallett if he's available since he's a lot like Shanahan's last QB: Cutler. Full of himself (confident) guy with a big arm that tries to squeeze too many balls into tight coverage and ends up turning over the ball. I hope they don't go this way, but wouldn't be surprised.

Dur...oh my gosh. I like my college teams. Lets draft Greg Jones because he played at my college team. This strategy has never failed us before. I mean it is so much cheaper to scout inside of Michigan for the lions and you have to trust your scouting. Greg Jones will make sixteen probowls.

OMG...what the heck??? 2011 is ruined for me. How can we draft a LT in the history of the world. I hate Matt for talking Scott Pioli into drafting an Olineman. What we need is a rushlinebacker and they are so hard to predict...lets stockpile a few and hope one hits. I say the Chefs take 3 rush linebackers and if they all end up good, well then we can trade them to the raiders for top 5 picks.

Why would the Chiefs take a LT when they have one of the better lines in the NFL. Both of our tackles are young as well. Then you pick a corner for the Chiefs in the second round? We have Flowers, Carr and Arrenes who were all taken within the last few drafts. It's almost as if you have no idea what your doing for some of these teams and just randomly selected players. Epic failure.

Terrible pick for Cincy in round 2. If Pouncey is there when they pick, he'll be wearing orange and black. If not, they take Pat Devlin.

Cassel was one of if not the least sacked QBs in the NFL, and the Chiefs led the NFL in rushing. Cassel had an excellent year and wasn't pressured much as evidenced by his LOW INT stat.... Logical conclusion? Draft a LT... I swear

Regarding your comment that the Bengals wouldn't pay a #4 overall QB to sit. I don't disagree. I'm from Cincinnati and hope the Bungles fail for the remainder of Mike Brown's time as their owner. However, they did sit Carson Palmer for 1 season behind Jon Kitna after making Palmer the #1 overall pick. But they're probably paying Palmer about $10 mil more than they were paying Kitna at that time. Regardless, I agree that they won't go QB, but I feel it's more due to lack of talent that is more pronounced at other positions.

BtotheLT if the Lions wanted an OLB they would just draft Von Miller, not Kerrigan. Personally I think they should take the best corner available and then they could still get a great LB in the second round like Greg Jones.

No way Belichick takes Miller over Ayers. One trick ponies do not get drafted by the Patriots.

He has 3 teams double dipping. Patriots OLB twice in rd 1 (never take OLB in rd 1 + only like big OLBs like Vrabel, Adalius Thomas, Willie McGinest, Banta-Cain, not 240 pound Miller), Titans corner twice (with Finnegan on the roster), and Steelers corner twice (can't argue with that). I know it became trendy last year, but this is excessive and unrealistic.

I think if the Lions drafted Kerrigan he'd probably fill a need at OLB (isn't that his natural position?)... They've recently announced they will be releasing Julian Peterson, add that to your notes perhaps.
