2011 NFL Draft: Five Players Who Will Have Jimmy Clausen-Like Drops

The NFL Draft is only a month away, and there are still a lot of uncertainties about who will go where, including who the first overall pick will be.

If last year's draft is any sign of what is to come, the best mock drafters will be wrong about a few players this year, who will drop like stones out of the first round.

Last year's prime example was Jimmy Clausen, who was expected to easily be a first round pick, and possibly even a top 10 pick. Instead, Clausen fell out of the first round and into the second before the Carolina Panthers selected him.

There is obviously no exact science on how to pick a player who will be the surprise drop come draft day, but there are a few signs, including weak pro days and a lot of "this player has potential" talk.

This slide-show picks five players who are expected to be drafted pretty high right now, but could drop significantly on the big day.

Feel free to comment below on what players you think will drop or why these players won't drop.
