2011 NFL Mock Draft Continues as Seattle Searches for Front-Seven Help

In this update, the Seattle Seahawks look for someone that can add depth to their defensive line, the Ravens try to find a guy they can groom at linebacker, the Falcons search for pass-rusher and the Patriots trying to find more backfield help.


Mock Draft Predictions for Picks 57-60


57. Seattle Seahawks: Marvin Austin, DT, UNC

Austin is big, physical and tremendously talented.  He can add depth to the same defensive line that was riddled by injuries last season. 

Some character issues and work-ethic concerns remain from his time at North Carolina, but if there's a coach that can help him shape up, it's Pete Carroll  


58. Baltimore Ravens: Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois

Wilson's big at 6'4", 250 lbs. and fast with a 4.40 40-yard dash time.  He also knows how to use his size effectively on defense which makes him one of the best, if not best interior defensive linemen available.

Now, doesn't that sound like a good Ray Lewis understudy? 


59. Atlanta Falcons: Dontay Moch, OLB, Nevada

Moch has one of the best straight-line speed scores for any linebacker or defensive ends in this class. 

However, there are questions about whether or not he can be effective in pass coverage and run-stopping. 

He needs to learn and develop more to become an every-down type of player.  


60. New England Patriots: Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State

He's a big running back with long legs and north-south running style.  Thomas could provide the Patriots backfield with more depth. 

Although he won't be expected to play every single down, he becomes a viable third-down and goal-line option.
