NFL Draft 2011: News and Predictions for All 16 AFC Teams

The 2011 NFL draft is only weeks away, and the rumors are swirling.

Da'Quan Bowers, who was once projected to go in the top three, is believed to be falling fast.  His stock is dropping so much that he's expected to slip out of the top 10 and could even fall out of the top 20.

That's pretty surprising news considering AFC teams like the Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars could use a pass-rushing force on their defensive lines.

Bowers, one of the nation's top pass rushers and leader in sacks last season with 15.5, is reportedly scaring teams away because of an injured knee, a subpar pro day and general concerns that he may not be as good as he was billed from game tape.

With Bowers slipping, the NFL draft boards are expected to change once again.

How far will Bowers slip?  Whose stock will be rising?  Where will the rest of the class likely land?

We're breaking down all of those possibilities right here for you.

Here is all the latest draft-related news and topics surrounding your favorite AFC teams.
