Monday, February 21, 2011 Mock Draft 2


Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera, who is the team’s new head coach and will be the Panther’s de-facto defensive coordinator, understands the value of having a dominating defensive tackle in the middle of the defense. He knows he can put him on the outside shoulder of one of the offensive guards and force the opposing offense to double-team him.

Denver sees Da’Quan Bowers as a dominating force on their defense. The Bills want to build their offense around young talented quarterback Blaine Gabbert. A.J. Green is a beast whom the Bengals can’t overlook. He’ll make Carson Palmer want to stay in Cincy.

Arizona needs an impact playmaking pass rusher like Von Miller. Cleveland may be getting the best defensive lineman in the draft with Marcell Dareus. Robert Quinn will make an impact for the Niners as a pass rusher.

The Titans may be get the chance to grab Cam Newton if he’s not off the board sooner. Dallas can’t help but grab Patrick Peterson, who is a steal at this spot. Cameron Jordan will fit in very well in one of the Redskins defensive end spots.

I’ve got the Eagles grabbing Mike Pouncey because he has the type of athleticism and intelligence which will allow the Birds to play him at guard or center depending on how well Jamaal Jackson returns. They’re deciding that they can live with Winston Justice.
