This latest NFL mock draft will focus on the top pass-rushers of the 2011 draft.
Da'Quan Bowers is losing a lot of ground. Once projected to go as high as No. 1 in many expert mock draft, a subpar pro day performance, bad game tape reviews and knee injury concerns have his stock free-falling.
Now that Bowers is expected to slide out of the top 10, could this open the door for a naturally gifted rusher like Robert Quinn to jump into the top 15?
Or will Quinn's character issues, lack of playing time last season and general raw abilities also keep him from also moving up in the draft?
With question marks surround Quinn and Bowers, someone like the extremely gifted Aldon Smith may have a chance to crack the top 10.
