After a highly successful “Fan’s Mock” here at B/R in 2010, we’re returning for our second go around to once again give our fans a chance to vote for who they think their team should select in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft!
The 2010 season took an unexpected turn for the worst early on for the Dallas Cowboys and didn’t get any better when quarterback Tony Romo was lost for the season.
But now, America’s team seems to have moved forward after firing head coach Wade Phillips and promoting offensive coordinator Jason Garret to his position.
Now the question is who Garrett (or Jerry Jones) will select at pick No. 9 to help get his team moving in the right direction.
With both elite corner backs already having been drafted in this scenario, it’s not going to be easy to predict what Garrett and Jones will do, but luckily that’s not what we’re looking for.
All we want to know is who you think your team should pick!
Here are the selections so far:
1. Carolina Panthers select CB Patrick Peterson
2. Denver Broncos Select DT Marcell Dareus
3. Buffalo Bills Select OLB Von Miller
Did Jason Garret Vanilla Out the Cowboys Offense in Order to Get Wade Philips Fired?
4. Cincinnati Bengals select DE Da’Quan Bowers
5. Arizona Cardinals select QB Blaine Gabbert
6. Cleveland Browns select WR A.J. Green
7. San Francisco 49ers select CB Prince Amukamara
8. Tennessee Titans select DT Nick Fairley
Again, what we really want to know is who the fans think their team should pick, so tell us!
Remember to cast your votes below!! Voting will close in 24 hours!
The Rules: Each day for the next 32 days, we’ll post a continuation of this article at 6 p.m. Eastern time where the fans can comment, discuss and decide who their team will pick.
At 5 p.m. Eastern the following day, we’ll look at the best comments and opinions, and announce the selection your team has made, along with the next team who will pick at 6 p.m.
A list of previous selections will be included and fans will not be allowed to vote for players who are already off the board.
Note: You do not have to use the player’s full name in voting for your vote to count. If there is a tie at the 5 p.m. cut-off, whichever player is ranked as the higher pick on CBS sports' "overall player ranking" will be the selection.
Example: If the Bills have six votes for Von Miller and six votes for Cam Newton, then Miller, who is ranked No. 2 overall, would be the selection over Newton, who is ranked No. 11.
