January is almost over, and that means that we are one month closer to the 2011 NFL Draft. The draft order is nearly complete, with the final two slots to be determined based on the outcome of the Super Bowl.
Every team knows what their biggest weakness is and will look to address that at some point in the draft. Right now, we think we know who the top players in this year's draft class are, but all of that can change after the scouting combine and pro day workouts in February.
The NFL Draft is one of the great events in all of sports because of all the surprises, and the hope that it brings to every NFL fan around the world. The 2011 Draft will be no different.
This year's senior class has a number of talented players, but there aren't a lot of top tier talents among seniors. One senior who will not have to wait very long to hear his name called is Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara. He is a top five talent and will likely be taken somewhere in the top 10.
One senior who was thought to be one of the top talents in this draft, Washington QB Jake Locker, does not make my first 32 picks. His accuracy and ability as a pocket passer concerns me, and I don't see him being a first round pick.
There are a number of players who can climb up the draft charts and guys who will fall far because of their workout in front of NFL scouts.
Here is our latest look at the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Who is rising? Who could be falling? All the answers lie in the following slides.
