This 2011 NFL Mock Draft order is based on the official 2011 NFL Draft Order
Carolina Panthers: Jordan Todman, RB, Connecticut
If DeAngelo Williams signs elsewhere, the Panthers may spend a late-round pick on a running back.
Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Winterswyk, DE, Boise State
The Bengals should probably take out a mid- or late-round insurance policy just in case Antwan Odom gets hurt again.
Cleveland Browns: Derrick Locke, RB, Kentucky
Peyton Hillis wore down the stretch, while Montario Hardesty is coming off injury. The Browns need a pass-catching running back, and Derrick Locke is way too good to pass up in Round 6.
Buffalo Bills: Jarriel King, OT/G, South Carolina
The Bills need to upgrade their offensive line so Christian Ponder isn't killed.
Cleveland Browns: Greg McElroy, QB, Alabama
Cleveland acquired this selection from Denver for Brady Quinn.
The Browns will probably spend a late-round selection on a developmental quarterback.
Arizona Cardinals: Bruce Miller, DE/OLB, Central Florida
The Cardinals will probably draft a couple of rush linebackers this April. Their pass rush really needs to improve.
Minnesota Vikings: Charles Clay, TE, Tulsa
During the NFL Network's Combine coverage, Steve Wyche said the following, "I know for sure the Vikings are looking for a tight end."
Seattle Seahawks: Stanley Havili, FB, USC
Seattle acquired this pick from Detroit for Lawrence Jackson.
The Seahawks have really missed Leonard Weaver's presence over the past couple of years. They'll be looking for a new lead blocker this offseason.
San Francisco 49ers: Deunta Williams, FS, North Carolina
Coming off an injury-ridden down year, Dashon Goldson is a free agent. Bringing him back and having him start in 2011 wouldn't be the end of the world, but the 49ers can do better at the position.
Tennessee Titans: Nate Irving, LB, N.C. State
The Titans may draft two linebackers this weekend based on their need at the position.
Dallas Cowboys: Jeremy Kerley, WR, TCU
Roy Williams is due a whopping $9.25 million in 2011. There's no way he's going to see that money. If the Cowboys part ways with him, they'll need to find a new tertiary option for Tony Romo.
Washington Redskins: Byron Stingily, OT, Louisville
Jammal Brown is a free agent. If the Redskins can't retain him, they'll need some help at right tackle.
Houston Texans: Chris Neild, NT, West Virginia
With Amobi Okoye as their only option, the Texans are in the market for a nose tackle.
Miami Dolphins: Ricardo Lockette, WR, Fort Valley State
The Dolphins need an upgrade at receiver across from Brandon Marshall because Brian Hartline is not progressing as the team would like.
Baltimore Ravens: Terrance Toliver, WR, LSU
The Ravens double dip at receiver; despite all of those wideout additions Baltimore made to its roster last year, the cupboard's pretty bare.
Oakland Raiders: Mario Fannin, RB, Auburn
Michael Bush is a free agent. If he leaves, the Raiders will need a power back complement for Darren McFadden.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Ryan Whalen, WR, Stanford
Mike Sims-Walker is a free agent, and the Jaguars don't exactly have the best depth behind Mike Thomas.
San Diego Chargers: Shiloh Keo, SS/ST, Idaho
The Chargers will be looking to strengthen their special teams this offseason. Shiloh Keo also provides secondary depth.
Arizona Cardinals: Anthony Sherman, FB, Connecticut
Arizona acquired this pick from Philadelphia for Reggie Wells.
The Cardinals could use an upgrade at fullback to help their lackluster rushing attack.
New York Giants: Jonas Mouton, OLB, Michigan
Keith Bulluck is a 34-year-old free agent. The Giants are in need of an upgrade at linebacker.
Denver Broncos: Johnny White, RB, North Carolina
John Fox loves utilizing multiple running backs, and the best available player might just be Johnny White, whom Denver has shown interest in. With White in the backfield, the Broncos won't be completely lost if (or rather, when) Knowshon Moreno gets hurt next season.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cortez Allen, CB, The Citadel
Despite Aqib Talib's recent arrest, the Buccaneers won't go after a cornerback early. They'll look at one in the middle rounds, and someone they really like is Cortez Allen.
Indianapolis Colts: Martin Parker, DT, Richmond
Daniel Muir could be the worst starting defensive lineman in the NFL. Bill Polian has to fix this.
Denver Broncos: Jeron Johnson, SS, Boise State
Denver acquired this pick from New England in the Laurence Maroney trade.
Brian Dawkins has had a great career, but he can no longer be allowed to start. He's done.
San Francisco 49ers: Thomas Keiser, DE/OLB, Stanford
San Francisco acquired this pick from Seattle for Kentwan Balmer.
Both Parys Haralson and Ahmad Brooks are inconsistent pass-rushers across from Manny Lawson. The 49ers need someone more dependable to get to the quarterback.
Baltimore Ravens: Cedric Thornton, DE/DT, Southern Arkansas
If the Ravens can't land Cameron Heyward at No. 26, they'll have to spend a later choice on a five-technique.
Atlanta Falcons: Pierre Allen, DE, Nebraska
The Falcons weren't able to secure a defensive end until the fourth round in this version of my 2011 NFL Mock Draft. If this happens in real life, Atlanta could opt to double dip at the position.
New England Patriots: Adrian Moten, LB/ST, Maryland
All of New England's needs have been filled, so this is pick is for depth and special teams.
New York Jets: Joe Lefeged, S, Rutgers
The Jets will be looking for safety help this offseason. They've shown interest in Joe Lefeged.
Chicago Bears: Roy Helu, RB, Nebraska
The Bears doth protest too much about not cutting Chester Taylor. It could be some sort of a smokescreen because Taylor is old and overpaid.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Alex Henery, K/P, Nebraska
The Steelers need a kicker (Shaun Suisham isn't good) and a punter (Daniel Sepulveda just had his third knee surgery.) As Emmitt would say, why not kill two stones with one bird? Alex Henery is a stud kicker and punter.
Green Bay Packers: Scott Tolzien, QB, Wisconsin
So many teams need a quarterback that the Packers may just get a good deal for Matt Flynn. If so, they'll find another signal-caller to groom.
New York Giants: Tim Barnes, C, Missouri
New York hasn't made the playoffs in the past two years, thanks in part to its pedestrian offensive line. Help is needed at left tackle and center.
Kansas City Chiefs: Jason Kelce, C, Cincinnati
ESPN's Bill Williamson reported that there's a 50-percent chance that Casey Wiegmann, 38 in July, will retire this offseason. The Chiefs need a successor and some insurance just in case Wiegmann hangs it up.
Minnesota Vikings: Richard Sherman, CB/FS, Stanford
Age and injury issues pollute Minnesota's cornerback corps. I know the Vikings just spent a second-round pick on Chris Cook, but they still need to address the position.
San Diego Chargers: Willie Smith, OT, East Carolina
The Chargers will reportedly try to re-sign Jeromey Clary. If they can't, they'll need some help at right tackle.
New York Giants: Jerrard Tarrant, S, Georgia Tech
The Giants have a habit of getting torched deep by their opponent. A quality safety could change that.
Carolina Panthers: Sealver Siliga, DT, Utah
The Panthers will probably double dip at defensive tackle this April. They really need help at that position.
