Final Update: 27 April 2011
Chargers 18. DE JJ Watt, Wisconsin (JR) Watt is a big time playmaker. He recorded an amazing 21 TFLs this season.
Watt (6' 5" 290 lbs) was the unsung here for a very good Wisconsin team. He had an excellent combine, he ran his 40-yard dash in 4.84 seconds had a 37" vertical jump, 34 reps on the bench press and recorded a 6.88 second time in the 3-cone drill.
Giants 19. C/G Mike Pouncey, Florida A very athletic, versatile player that has nice size (6' 4" 310 lbs) and good blood lines.
To good to pass up, Pouncey could be a pro bowl center or guard very early in his career. The Giants need help on the inside of their offensive line.
Bucs 20. DE Ryan Kerrigan, Purdue A true defensive end that fits perfectly in the Bucs 4-3 defense.
Very productive, Kerrigan led the nation in 2010 with 26 TFLs and 12.5 sacks this year. Quick, talented and good size (6' 4" 262).
Chiefs 21. Akeem Ayers, UCLA Slipped a little due to a mediocre combine, but Ayers is a talented blue chip linebacker.
A huge need for the Chiefs, Ayers has great size (6' 3" 251 lbs) is an excellent tackler and has fantastic instincts. Mike Vrable had 0 sacks last year, he is old and a free agent.
Colts 22. OT Anthony Castonzo, Boston College A big kid (6' 7" 310 lbs) that should be able to start at left tackle.
The Colts need an upgrade at left tackle. Castonzo doesn't look very athletic and has had injury issues. He (Castonzo) just needs a stronger base, bend his knees and play with a lower pad level. Tony Ugoh has been a major disappointment.
Eagles 23. CB Jimmy Smith, Colorado A corner with excellent size (6' 2" 207 lbs.) and speed. Smith has been flying up the draft boards.
Smith supposedly has character concerns, but if those check out OK the Eagles will snatch the talented Smith up in a heart beat.
Saints 24. DT Muhammad Wilkerson, Temple (JR) This 6' 3" 305 pound junior defensive tackle recorded 4.5 sacks and 63 tackles in 2010.
Sedrick Ellis is a beast, but Remi Ayodele is a free agent. Wilkerson is very powerful and quick as a cat. He (Wilkerson) will immediately upgrade the Saints defense. This is the year of the defensive lineman and the 2012 NFL Draft should be about the wide receivers.
Seahawks 25. OT Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin Prototype size, 6' 8" 313 lbs, and very athletic. A mauler, great run blocker.
The Seahawks are fine on the left side with Russell Okung, but on the right side Sean Locklear is a free agent. Battle tested in the Big 10, Carimi has dominated every defensive end he has came up against this year, including Ohio States' Cameron Heyward.
Ravens 26. CB Aaron Williams, Texas Williams has the size (6' 205 lbs) and athleticism to play corner or safety.
Corner is a huge need, Domonique Foxworth is coming off a torn ACL and and Chris Carr and Josh Wilson are both free agents. Williams just to good to pass up because he can also play safety.
Falcons 27. TE Kyle Rudolph, Notre Dame Rudolph is by far the best tight end in this draft and Tony Gonzalez is close to retirement.
This makes a ton of sense, Gonzalez is entering his 15th year and they only have Justin Peelle and Michael Palmer under him. Rudolph would have been a top 15 pick if he hadn't tore his hamstring last year, he has excellent size (6' 6" 258 lbs) speed and hands.
Patriots 28. OT Nate Solder, Colorado A prototype left tackle (6' 5" 319 lbs), good feet and very powerful at the point of attack.
The Pats O-line is getting old. It's a coin toss here to give the Pats OLB Brooks Reed, who could be an excellent OLB for the Pats. Solder looked very good at the NFL Scouting Combine. He just needs to sink his hips better against the bull rush, he plays a little tall.
Bears 29. OT Derek Sherrod, Mississippi State A prototype left tackle with toughness and good size (6' 7" 316 lbs).
The Chicago Bears need to fix their offensive line and Sherrod is capable of starting as a rookie.
Jets 30. DE Cameron Heyward, Ohio State At 6' 5" 285 pounds Heyward is an excellent prospect to play end in a 3-4 defense.
There is going to be a lot of defensive linemen drafted early in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Steelers 31. DT Phil Taylor, Baylor A monster on the inside at 6' 3" 335 pounds. Taylor can get an excellent push on the inside.
Current Steeler NT Casey Hampton is entering his 10th year in the NFL, Taylor is by far the best nose tackle in this 2011 NFL Draft.
Packers 32. OG Danny Watkins, Baylor Watkins (6' 4" 312 lbs) is the best guard in the 2011 NFL Draft.
The offensive guard position needs a a major upgrade. DE Cullen Jenkins is a free agent and the Packers need an upgrade at end so North Carolina DT Marvin Austin or Iowa's Christian Ballard would also be a great picks here.
