     The 2011 NFL draft is filled with some interesting talent this year, and most of the higher profile prospects are defensive players.

    But there are some offensive players in the draft this year who just have the ability to make plays that leave your jaw on the floor.

    Here are the 10 most electrifying offensive players in this year’s draft.

Cam Newton

    Newton has the smile, charisma and the marketability off the field.

    On the field, Newton is one the most interesting athletic specimens college football has ever seen. He did a little of everything: He passed for 28 touchdowns, rushed for 20 touchdowns and has even tallied up one receiving touchdown.

    Newton is unbelievable at making plays with his feet. He breaks tackles, isn’t afraid to take a big hit and fights for extra yardage.

Torrey Smith

    Smith has amazing speed, and he is quick as well as agile. In the open field he will embarrass defenders with his elusiveness.

    He is also an excellent kick returner.

Titus Young

    Young has been a threat to take the ball the distance every time he has it.

    You know he is fast when defenders back five feet from him, and he burns them anyway.

    Young’s ability to make plays all over the field makes him one of the most exciting players in this year's draft.

    He will certainly give fans their money’s worth.

A.J. Green

    Green is as talented and explosive as receivers come.

    He has an excellent vertical and uses his physicality to make catches.

    This man will add a new dimension to an offense wherever he goes.

Julio Jones

    Jones can jump for difficult catches.

    And on short routes, he can be too strong for some opposing cornerbacks to tackle by themselves.

    Jones catching on the run and smashing opponents with his size is a sight to behold.

DeMarco Murray

    Murray’s speed and athleticism was quite a sight in Oklahoma.

    He out-ran most linebackers and showed great acceleration between tackles.

Colin Kaepernick

    Kaepernick, other than Cam Newton, is one of the best quarterbacks at making plays with his feet.

     And he might just re-energize a franchise willing to take a chance on him.

Jonathan Baldwin

9 of 11

    Baldwin might be the most physical receiver in the draft. He is 6’5" and 225 pounds.

    Baldwin is the kind of receiver who isn’t afraid to go across the middle of the field and make a big catch.

    He doesn’t mind putting his body on the line and fans will love that.

Randall Cobb

10 of 11

    Cobb is a very versatile player. He can run the ball as well as make impressive grabs.

    Cobb isn’t the biggest or strongest guy, but he is extremely athletic.

Mikel Leshoure

11 of 11

    Leshoure is very big for a running back at 6’1", 230 pounds. He is a very powerful running back and defenders have a tough time tackling.

    Who wouldn’t want to see a physical runner powering his way through linebackers?
