2011 NFL Mock Draft: Skill Positions Rule Round One

Much was made of the lack of offensive skill position players in this year's draft. It wasn't a particularly deep quarterback field. Running back and wide receiver were lacking as well.

There were only seven players drafted from those three positions the first round.

Next year, however, there will many to choose from. Quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers will be there for the taking the entire first night.

There will be some excellent defensive players as well, but the needs of the many NFL cellar-dwellers will dictate who will be picked at what spot.

With only seven of the 32 picks this season going to those skill positions, next year will be quite the opposite. The way I see it, there will be 16 skill players selected in 2011.

Check 'em out.
