    The NFL draft is right around the corner and everyone is searching for the most up-to-date mock drafts as they prepare their own.

    To make your life easier, I have compiled the most up-to-date mock drafts from the most respected NFL draft analysts around the web.

    It’s always fun to see who scouts and draft analysts predict for each team as everyone has their own opinion and states their own case.

    Of course, despite the speculative nature of mock drafts, because we are all so entrenched in our own beliefs and opinions, we either praise one analysts and mock another—but hey, that’s why we love the NFL draft season!

    Here is our lineup and be sure to visit their mocks for analysis:

    ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Todd McShay and featured NFL Scouts, CBS Sports’ Rob Rang and Chad Reuter, Fox Sports’ Peter Schrager, NFL Network and NFL.com’s Charles Davis, Steve Wyche, Pat Kirwan, Brian Baldinger and Bucky Brooks, Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks and Rotoworld’s Evan Silva.

    Also be sure to check out my latest mock draft and Bleacher Report’s extensive 2011 NFL Draft dedicated section!
