After a highly successful “Fan’s Mock” here at B/R in 2010, we’re returning for our second go-round 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!

Alright Patriot fans, it’s time for your first pick this round and no, you can’t trade down.

With three picks in the top 33 of this year’s NFL Draft, it’ll be interesting to see whether New England will decide to stock up on picks like they have in the past, or elect to finally spend them.

But for now, all we want to know is who the fans think the Patriots will pick if they do decide to stay put this year.


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

4.     Cincinnati Bengals select DE Da’Quan Bowers

5.     Arizona Cardinals select QB Blaine Gabbert

6.     Cleveland Browns select WR AJ Green

7.     San Francisco 49ers select CB Prince Amukamara

8.     Tennessee Titans select DT Nick Fairley

9.     Dallas Cowboys select OT Tyron Smith

10.   Washington Redskins select DE Robert Quinn

11.   Houston Texans select DE Cameron Jordan

12.   Minnesota Vikings select QB Jake Locker

13.   Detroit Lions select OT Anthony Castonzo

14.   St. Louis Rams select WR Julio Jones

15.   Miami Dolphins select QB Cam Newton

16.   Jacksonville Jaguars select DE Ryan Kerrigan


So who’s it gonna be?

Remember to cast you 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.
