Mel Kiper 2011 Mock Draft: These Teams Get The Cures They Need
Mel Kiper 2011 Mock Draft: Now we exit the prime time players of the top ten and delve into the trenches. The next picks will change a great deal in the time left before the 2011 NFL Draft.
But some of Kiper's picks between 11 and 15 will stick. That is if the kids here are still available. Here is how it shakes out.
11. Houston Texans - Aldon Smith OLB
12. Minnesota Vikings - Nate Solder OT
13. Detroit Lions - Akeem Ayers OLB
14. St. Louis Rams - Julio Jones WR
15. Miami Dolphins - Mark Ingram RB
While the Vikings need a quarterback, they would do well to shore up their offensive line. Solder will make anyone look more poised in the pocket, even Tavaris Jackson.
But the real sure fire locks are for the Rams and Dolphins. Miami gets the man they need for their running game. Ingram is an explosive back that moves exceptionally well laterally. He will find holes where none seem to exist.
The Rams also get the exact player they need. Sam Bradford had a remarkable rookie season despite not having a reliable receiver. If Jones is around, the Rams will take him. He makes Bradford;s job immensely easier.
