2011 NFL Draft: The 20 Most Inexplicable Selections

Every draft year there are picks that make you scratch your head, the ones you really just don't get.

The 2011 NFL draft is no exception.

This list is about those inexplicable picks. 

Please know that the players that made this list aren't necessarily future busts. 

They might be; they might not. 

However, a far more important factor in most cases is that the teams that selected these players either monumentally reached for the player, didn't need help at the particular position, or neglected to choose a more skilled or appropriate player or a more needed position.

The majority of these players were taken in the draft's earlier rounds because, in stating that a pick was inexplicable, the expected value of the selection has to be taken into consideration.

In other words, it would be really unfair to put a player taken in the draft's seventh round on this list.

By the time the draft's later rounds are taking place, most teams are essentially just filling needs and taking some long-shot chances.
