2011 NFL Mock Draft: Nick Fairley Still No. 1, Jon Baldwin To Falcons

Is it 2011 NFL mock draft time again? It is! SB Nation’s latest retains Auburn Tigers DT Nick Fairley as the No. 1 selection by the Carolina Panthers, though there are a few shuffles throughout the first round. A further finalized draft order, with the Jets and Bears now locked in, cleared things up somewhat, but this weekend’s Senior Bowl will go a long way toward giving us an even better-looking mock next week.

The Atlanta Falcons go WR this time around, grabbing Pittsburgh Panthers giant Jon Baldwin at No. 27. Six-foot-five and 230 pounds, he’s got all the tools you could ever ask for, but his work ethic has been a question. Do the Birds believe they have a stable enough organization in place after three years to try and bring on a project instead of going for safe picks every year?

Elsewhere around the NFC South: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers get Iowa Hawkeyes DE Adrian Clayborn again, while the New Orleans Saints are sticking with Illinois Fighting Illini RB Mikel Leshoure.
