There's two buzzes going on in the NFL right now: NFL 2011 Draft Predictions and Playoff Picks. One is a race for excellence, focused on a playoff birth and a Super Bowl ring, while the other is all about a top draft spot. And, nothing matters more than the ever important number one pick.
So, which team will snatch the top spot and, more importantly, who will go first?
Is Stanford's Andrew Luck still the lock on the first pick or has someone else edged up?
Or, is Arkansas Ryan Mallet a worthy contender?
Finally, will a defensive player barrel their way into the top four picks? Maybe LSU's Patrick Peterson?
The race is on.
Here is a Mock NFL Draft 2011 based on where I feel the teams will finish the year, including the Super Bowl. More importantly, I'll address team needs and the pick they will make.
