    2011 NFL Mock Draft
    By: Robert Davis | Updated: 12/19
    Carolina - DaQuan Bowers, DE, Clemson
    Carolina will be in a tough spot if they land this pick. Trading down would make the most sense, since they do not have a second rounder and have quite a few needs. If they stay here, taking Luck and passing on upgrading other positions may be difficult. Bowers would give them the type of standout playmaker off the edge they had before Julius Peppers left town.

    Cincinnati - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
    The Bengals aren’t going anywhere with Carson Palmer at the helm. They would be better served moving him to a team in need of a veteran at QB and starting over with Luck.

    Denver - Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
    A new coach may implement his own scheme, but every defense can use a shut down corner. Peterson is a shut down talent with tremendous size for the position that would help any defense.

    Detroit - Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
    The Lions are in a great spot to land one of the elite corners, so this pick is pretty easy with Peterson off the board.

    Buffalo - Jake Locker, QB, Washington
    Ryan Fitzpatrick has done a solid job leading the Bills offense. While he will not be considered a long term answer, his success could give a rookie QB some time to adjust to the NFL before taking over. A talent and leader like Locker, who is accustomed to the cold weather, would be the ideal fit long term.

    Arizona - Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina
    An offensive tackle makes the most sense, but the team can’t afford to reach for one here. Ryan Mallett may draw consideration but he does have some similarities to Derek Anderson, which could be a turn off. Quinn would give them a difference maker off the edge, and help improve things on the defensive side of the ball.

    Dallas - Marcell Dareus, DL, Alabama
    The offensive line and secondary could be the areas the Cowboys focus on, but at this point in the draft, nobody provides enough value. Upgrading the talent on the defensive line would make sense, and a guy like Dareus would provide an infusion of youth. Dareus may not be the prototype 3-4 end, but he can play the role along with providing a boost on passing downs with his ability to get up the field.

    San Francisco - Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
    Many may point to Alex Smith as a reason to not take a QB this high, but the 9ers may have no choice. The team does have a couple solid weapons in Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree, and Vernon Davis but the person taking the snaps has left a lot to be desired. Mallett is the type of gunslinger that could help open the offense up

    That's a reach for Mallett.

    Fairley would be the fourth DL taken here?
