Screwfish's Final 2011 NFL Mock Draft (Version 4.0.)

I've done three of these so far, and figure that it's finally time to present my final mock of the year with Round 1 starting in less than 48 hours.

Round 2: Marcus Cannon (G/T, TCU)
The more rumours and misinformation that spread, the more it seems possible that Marcus Cannon could be available for the Raiders at #48. If he is, I can't see Al and Hue passing up on him. Both of them have acknowledged the need to upgrade the offensive line, and Cannon is a beast. He could play guard or right tackle in the NFL and make holes for McFadden/Bush all day.

Round 3: Orlando Franklin (G, Miami)
Two linemen with the first two picks? Very likely, given that the only O-line spot that's anywhere close to being settled is Veldheer at LT, and we need two new guards to replace Hagrid and Carlisle. Franklin is an ideal fit for a power blocking, smash mouth team. Plus, he's from the U so you know he's a bully. (And, as a Canes fan I couldn't look past him).

Round 4: TRADE (No.113, No.219 and 2012 No.3 to Carolina for No.98)
Round 4: Mason Foster (LB, Washington)
I've been a fan of Foster since day 1. He's currently mocked as a 2-3 round pick, but I forsee his stock slipping given that he's not the biggest guy or greatest athlete going around - but as a 4-3 weakside LB who's rock solid against the run and covers well, he's exactly what we need. I'm sure Al realises this as well, hence, the trade up.

Round 5: D.J. Williams (TE/H-Back, Arkansas)
Coach Hue likes running 2TE sets. Williams is a talented receiver with good hands and route running skills, a good athlete and solid blocker who will drop because of his height (a shade under 6'2") but he has the skills and heart to succeed in the NFL. Could also be used as a H-back on occasion.

Round 6: Chykie Brown (CB, Texas)
Brown ran a 4.37 40 at his Pro Day - you know big Al's gotta be intrigued. He's quite a raw prospect who needs to improve his tackling, but at this stage is worth a punt as a nickel/dime corner.

Round 7 (compo pick): Chris Prosinski (FS, Wyoming)
Prosinski wasn't a guy who was even on my radar before Noontide's piece on him a while back, but then I started doing some research. He was solid in college and while the leap from the Mountain West Conference to the NFL is a significant one we won't need to bring him along too fast. Hopefully he can start on special teams and work his way up.
