With the NFL wrapped up in its worst labor dispute since 1987, fans are clamoring for something football-related to get excited about. With no big names on the move in free agency and no players at mini camps or even just working out at team facilities, news is hard to come by unless it involves the words "court", "mediation" or "disagreement".
There is no need for such doom and gloom, though, because the 2011 NFL Draft is a mere 17 days away. With draftniks all over the country putting together their final mock drafts, I have adopted a different approach. I have assembled a singular mock draft for your reading pleasure, which I worked meticulously on, purposely waiting until now to publish it. I studied tendencies of teams and their general managers and put myself in their shoes for each and every pick.
Without further ado, please sink your teeth into my one and only mock draft.
