Names To Watch For NFL Draft 2011

Nick Fairley, DL, Auburn
After becoming a huge defensive threat for the Auburn Tigers after declaring for the draft Fairley has flew to the top of the draft board. The Panthers will likely him their number one pick if they don't go with end Da'Quan Bowers.
A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
Green was an explosive target for Mark Richt's Bulldogs the last few years but few people know how good he actually was. Having less than great quarterbacks which included Joe Cox and Aaron Murray Green didn't post as good as numbers as he could. In the right system he could be the huge boom for a team.
Marcell Dareus, DL, Alabama
Yet another SEC prospect Dareus struggled through injuries most of his college career. At times he looked sluggish and slow but when healthy he is a younger Ndamukong Suh. He has NFL size and good awareness and could be picked by a Top 10 team looking for a pass rusher.
Jake Locker, QB, Washington
An consensus number one preseason draft candidate, Locker struggled in his senior year at Washington. Locker struggled with interception boasting a 17 to 9 touchdown to INT ratio. But with Andrew Luck staying he will likely be the number one QB off the board.
Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
Unlike in previous years the pickings at offensive line are pretty slim. Playing in an isolated Colorado Solder excelled due to his rich athleticism. Various teams could pick him up like the Cowboys or Falcons.
Muhammed Wilkerson, DE-DT, Temple
Wilkerson might not even go in the first round but he has a lot of talent. They're many ends and tackles that teams can go with but the Jets could make the move to pick Wilkerson due to the aging line. The Ravens could also pick up Wilkerson in the late first round.
Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
The former Heisman winner's draft stock has taken a beating due to inconsistency and injury. But, the amazing thing is, he still might be the first back taken. The Patriots could pick him later in the first round with aging Fred Taylor but he could even go higher like to the a team like the Jaguars at 16.
Stefen Wisniewski, G-C, Penn State
The one thing that is hurting Wisniewski is the fact that centers or guards are likely picked in the first round. But he could still be a first round pick because he is a true leader.
Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
It is likely that LSU cornerback Patrick Petersen will go higher than Amukamara but he will still likely be a Top 10 pick. The 49ers have an aging secondary and the Rams and Lions have never been great in the secondary.
Von Miller, DE/LB, Texas A&M
Miller is a pass rushing linebacker/end that I like. He is the smashmouth consistent player I like. The Texans could snap him up early due to a a lack on the line and an instate bias. The Jaguars and Lions could snap him up a little bit later.
