The 2011 NFL Draft picture is starting to become clear now that the NFL season is over. We know which order the picks will go and, barring any trades, mock drafts will now be easier to create.
Mel Kiper has continued to update his big board, with his latest change coming on February 7. He has Nick Fairley leading the group of four (Bowers, Peterson, Green), and he also has Rahim Moore and Torrey Smith cracking the top 25.
Whether you agree or disagree with Mel's big board, it's not easy to rank the top 25 players in all of college football for the draft. It's even more difficult to rank the top 50, and there are many that you will likely think I'm crazy for ranking too high or too low.
One thing is for sure, though; any team that needs a defensive lineman will be more than satisfied as a big number are in the top 50.
