2011 NFL mock draft

You've all heard of the two certainties in life - death and taxes - but did you know there's another? With 100% certainty I can tell you that of the hundreds of 2011 NFL mock drafts you will read, not one will correctly predict the first round. It is almost statistically impossible and when you add the human element into the equation (i.e. 32 NFL teams drafting/trading picks), the odds increase even more.

With that said, here's my first crack at predicting the 2011 NFL draft. (Editor's note: Look for updates as this mock draft will change throughout the offseason).
