Here is a mock draft by Lance Zierlein a respected talk show host in Houston (http://www.1560thegame.com/).
My First Mock Draft of 2011
1. Carolina - Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
Z-Report Says: The Panthers could look to take a QB here, but there isn't really a QB worthy of the first pick and I can't see them taking a CB like Patrick Peterson from LSU this early. Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers could be a fit here, but he's not as dominant as Fairley.
2. Denver - Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
Z-Report Says: The Broncos are in desperate need of CB help and with Peterson likely to test off the charts at the combine and/or his personal workout, the Broncos will have a hard time passing on him.
3. Buffalo - Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
Z-Report Says: The Bills have to find a QB who they believe can be the cornerstone of their team for years to come. The question is whether or not they believe that Gabbert or maybe even Cam Newton can be that guy. If the Bills look to fill the QB spot later, then Von Miller or Patrick Peterson could be two of the players the Bills might target.
4. Cincinnati - A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
Z-Report Says: The Bengals like their DEs with some size and Da'Quan Bowers makes perfect sense here, but with the Bengals in desperate need of a young wide receiver to take over for Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens, Green could be the Bengals pick here even if it is too early.
5. Arizona - Von Miller, OLB/DE, Texas A&M
Z-Report Says: While I was at the Senior Bowl practices, I was able to listen in on the conversation between Cardinals head coach Ken Wisenhunt and Miller and I can assure you that Wisenhunt thought highly of Miller after watching him practice. The Cardinals could use a pass rushing play-maker and Miller fits the mold.
6. Cleveland - Marcell Dareus, DT/DE, Alabama
Z-Report Says: To be honest, the Browns might consider themselves lucky if Dareus fell this far. Dareus immediately upgrades the Browns defensive line.
7. San Francisco - Robert Quinn, DE/OLB, North Carolina
Z-Report Says: Yet another spot where a QB could go if the Niners are feeling frisky, but I expect the 49ers to turn their attention to Kevin Kolb via trade which might mean this could be Philadelphia's pick eventually. Regardless, the Niners have been looking for a strong pass rush from the OLB position for awhile and if Quinn's character checks out, he could be the guy.
8. Tennessee - Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
Z-Report Says: Bud Adams flexed his muscles back in 2006 when he pushed Jeff Fisher and company to select Vince Young with the 3rd pick of the draft and it will be interesting to see if Bud and the Titans covet another run/pass QB in this draft since they will be looking to fill the position.
9. Dallas - Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
Z-Report Says: The Cowboys would love to see Bowers fall this far, but the only way it happens is if teams get excited about the QBs and the OLBs as I've predicted in this first mock draft.
10. Washington - Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
Z-Report Says: The Redskins need secondary help in the worst way, but they could also use a great wide receiver. I'm gambling that the Redskins recent misses on WRs early in the draft will keep them off of A.J. Green and push them towards Amukamara.
11. Houston - Cameron Jordan, DE, Cal
Z-Report Says: I wanted to put Aldon Smith from Missouri or Ryan Kerrigan from Purdue in this spot, but my guess is that the Texans will see the OLB position as a position that they have covered on their roster currently or as a position they can grab a little later in the draft. It is difficult to find 3-4 DEs who can rush the passer effectively and that might end up being what Jordan can bring to the table. Jordan was one of the most dominant pass rushers in Senior Bowl drills and his father, Steve Jordan, played tight end for the Minnesota Vikings and was a 6-time Pro Bowler.
12. Minnesota - Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri
13. Detroit - Nate Solder, LT, Colorado
14. St. Louis - Cameron Heyward, DT, Ohio State
15. Miami - Mikel LeShoure, RB, Illinois
16. Jacksonville - Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
17. New England - Justin Houston, OLB/DE, Georgia
18. San Diego - Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa
19. New York Giants - Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College
20. Tampa Bay - Ryan Kerrigan, OLB/DE, Purdue
21. Kansas City - Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
22. Indianapolis - Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin
23. Philadelphia - Derek Sherrod, LT, Mississippi State
24. New Orleans - Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
25. Seattle - Tyron Smith, OT, USC
26. Baltimore - Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
27. Atlanta - Akeem Ayers, LB/DE, UCLA
28. New England - Muhammad Wilkerson, DE, Temple
29. Chicago - Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida
30. New York Jets - J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
31. Green Bay - Corey Liuget, DE/DT, Illinois
32. Pittsburgh - Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
