2011 NFL Draft: DT/NT class

Aubrayo Franklin most-likely will not return in 2011. Who are some of the DT/NT prospects that you have your eye on?

How about:

Terrell McClain, South Florida 6'3 310 lbs.

rd 1 = Marcell Dareus

rd 2 = Corey Liuget (probably gone) or Marvin Austin

rd 3/4 = Sione Fua or Ian Williams
Jarvis Jenkins, Clemson
Jerrell Powe, Ole Miss
Anthony Gray, Southern Miss.

What about Ellis and Powe at NT and Ballard, Jenkins and Guy at DE?

I really think that RJF can be a NT in the Fangio 3-4 if Franklin leaves...draft a bigger body as backup and for obvious running downs (goal line stands, 4th downs)

Bolded are who I like
Phil Taylor NT Baylor - late 1st rd
Unfortunately, McClain weighed in much smaller than what you've got there. He'd be more of a DE in our system. He checked in at just over 6-1 297 pounds.

I stand corrected. Thanks man!

Top 10 NT prospects of 2011 for me are these:

1. Marcel Dareus-Alabama (yes he can play the nose, and enjoys it too), 6-3 319 4.93
2. Phil Taylor-Baylor, 6-3 334 5.14
3. Kenrick Ellis-Hampton, 6-5 346 5.28
4. Jerrell Powe-Mississippi, 6-2 335 5.29
5. Sione Fua-Stanford, 6-2 308 5.28
6. Chris Neild-West Virginia, 6-2 319 5.12
7. Dexter Larimore-Ohio State, 6-3 319 5.18 (could also play End)
8. Anthony Gray-Southern Miss, 6-0 330 5.19
9. Cory Grant-TCU, 6-1 316 5.09

...

10. Derrick Hill-Cal, 6-1 311 5.67 (There's a drop-off after Grant)

You named 2 of the 3 I named OTC. But you didn't name Jarvis Jenkins. Don't think he'd be good at NT?
BTW, I do hope we take a flier out on Anthony Gray. He would be a good project NT.

I agree, I don't think Franklin is coming back, so NT has to be a first day priority IMO. I hope Phil Taylor is there in the 2nd, I have him as one of my surprise top 10 picks, hopefully I'm wrong.

i dont see him going in top 10 howeever i think there is even a less chance of him dropping to second round
Random fact........ Ole Miss DT Lawton Scott (6'2, 322 lbs.) has a career Kick Return average of 65.5. He could be our future NT and Kick Returner.
