2011 NFL Draft: A.J. Green To Bengals Or Browns Becoming Consensus

A.J. Green might be the most talented player in the 2011 NFL Draft, but he won't be the first pick, because the Carolina Panthers are operated from afar by a coalition of their NFC South rivals. Love u, Charlotte! Green is expected to last until the middle of the top 10, with the majority of current mock drafts sending him to the Cincinnati Bengals at No. 4, according to the egregious database compiled by DC Pro Sports Report.

Fifty-seven percent of mock drafts, in fact, which is a higher percentage than even No. 3.

The second-most likely landing spot is Cincy's Battle of Ohio rival, the Cleveland Browns at No. 6. Thirty percent of mock drafts have the Georgia Bulldogs star winding up in another Dawg Pound, meaning almost 90 percent of current mocks have the UGA receiver landing in the state and being off the board by pick No. 6.

So those rumors about the Falcons trading up for Green? Looking very, very unlikely at this point.

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft started at 8 p.m. (ET) on Thursday, April 28th, and SB Nation has everything you need to keep up with it: news, rumors, player profiles, scouting reports, the full NFL draft schedule, NFL mock drafts, draft projections and more.
