It's getting closer and closer.
We're just a week away from the 2011 NFL draft and I couldn't be more excited.
NFL teams are prepping one last time and making last minute visits with prospects.
This weekend, they will go over their plan for the draft and hope the guy they love the most will fall their way.
So far this offseason, a few good storylines have emerged alongside the draft.
First, there is the current lockout, which will hopefully be lifted soon so that teams can actually have a proper offseason.
Second, there is the quarterback battle. Who will be taken first? Will Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert be the top quarterback in the 2011 NFL draft?
What is sure to steal the show by the end of the first day is how many defensive lineman will be drafted in the first round.
It's possible that anywhere from 13 to 16 could be taken on the first day alone.
One good name in particular is Justin Houston. He had a solid combine and pro day, but was it enough for him to crack the top 20?
Stay tuned as I update you throughout the day on my latest mock draft.
