2011 NFL Mock Draft: Complete 1st Round With Pick-By-Pick Analysis

It is late February and that means the NFL Scouting Combine is live in Indianapolis and the NFL Draft is officially getting closer.

Players will put it all on the line this week (if they decide to workout) and teams will get the opportunity to interview and talk with them in ways they have not gotten the chance to do yet.

NFL Draft boards will certainly shake up a bunch following this week's event and then Pro Day workouts will be the only other thing on the menu before we reach the actual Draft in late April.

It will certainly be a wild ride from now until the Draft, especially without NFL Free Agency, and we should expect a ton of analysis from any and all football people.

Again, things will certainly change after workouts, but here's a look at the way I see the Draft prior to the Combine.

1. Carolina: Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn 17. New England (via Oak): J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
2. Denver: Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson 18. San Diego: Aldon Smith, DE/OLB, Missouri
