Onion Sports 2011 Mock NFL Draft

Conventional draft wisdom says to take the best player available, but sometimes a team needs something different. With that in mind, here's how OSN predicts the first ten picks of the NFL Draft will go:

  • Carolina Panthers: QB Cam Newton. Would bring with him the much-needed knowledge of what touchdowns are and how to get them
  • Denver Broncos: DT Marcell Dareus. Though anyone could play better defense than the current Broncos team, it seems like a big, strong guy with college experience would be a good way to go
  • Buffalo Bills: LB Von Miller. Miller excels at running toward the guy who has the ball, which is something the Bills defense has failed to do for years
  • Cincinnati Bengals: WR Greg Salas. Despite a rather sparse draft class, the Bengals still somehow manage to make the worst possible pick
  • Arizona Cardinals: QB Cam Newton. The Cardinals will then shamefully admit to Commissioner Goodell that they weren't paying attention, apologize, and select WR Greg Salas instead
  • Cleveland Browns: WR A.J. Green. Might be able to make some impressive grabs if Colt McCoy can reach him
  • San Francisco: CB Patrick Peterson. San Fran has been looking to shore up its pass defense after giving up more than 27 million yards in the air last season
  • New England Patriots: DE Robert Quinn. A savvy organization like New England isn't going to let the fact that they have the 17th pick prevent them from picking eighth
  • Dallas Cowboys: OT Tyron Smith. He’s the strongest tackle in the draft, and he fits right in with the Cowboys, what with being an idiot and all
  • Washington Redskins: Bust. The Redskins will stick to their draft-day formula, selecting somebody who can familiarize himself with their system immediately
