2011 NFL Mock Draft (cont.)
16. Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles faithful are nervous about starting cornerback Ellis Hobbs, and they need more help in nickel and dime packages.
17. Cincinnati Bengals
The former quarterback led the Big 12 in rushing with 1,265 yards and is still learning the position.
18. New York Giants
The Giants once-dependable offensive line started showing holes in 2009.
19. Miami Dolphins
Jones is a tackling machine who surprised a lot of people by returning to Michigan State.
20. Washington Redskins
McDaniel had eight interceptions last season and provides a physical presence against the run.
21. New England Patriots
Romeus was a basketball player who didn't pick up the sport until his senior year of high school. If he reaches double digits in sacks this season, he should be a first-rounder.
22. Green Bay Packers
Miller could fit here as the Packers try to land another outside linebacker to complement Clay Matthews.
23. Houston Texans
Moore led the nation with 10 interceptions last season and helps fill a big need for the Texans.
24. Atlanta Falcons
Crick had five sacks in one game last season. He'll prove he can perform without having Ndamukong Suh drawing all of the offense's attention.
25. San Francisco 49ers
Although he has a different style, the 2009 Heisman winner could help lighten the load on Frank Gore and eventually become his replacement.
26. New York Jets
Clayborn ran into some off-field issues, but the Jets have shown they're not afraid of that kind of risk.
27. San Diego Chargers
The Chargers don't appear to have many holes right now, but could add depth to the receiving corps.
28. Minnesota Vikings
Is it possible we'll still be debating whether Brett Favre will come back or not at this point next season?
29. Indianapolis Colts
Bailey considered going pro this year, but will return to lead a unit that isn't producing as many sure-fire first-rounders as it used to.
30. Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys will likely have to focus on a long-term answer at left tackle.
31. Baltimore Ravens
Another talented defensive back in a program that's been churning them out.
32. New Orleans Saints
The Saints don't seem settled at this position, and Murray could provide a long-term answer.
