2011 NFL Draft: Julio Jones Predicted To Redskins, Browns Or Potential Falcons Trade

Julio Jones is projected to lose this round of his ongoing foisted rivalry with A.J. Green, as 49 percent of all 2011 NFL mock drafts compiled by the immense DC Pro Sports Report project him going No. 10 to the Washington Redskins, a couple picks after Green to either the Cincinnati Bengals or Cleveland Browns. These things always wind up way off, of course, but that's the general zeitgeist at the moment.

Dozens of mocks predict Green to the Browns if the Bengals take Green, however, so the two could end up playing each other twice a year instead of just once every couple years. They will become best friends.

 However, for the Atlanta Falcons fan: those reports of Thomas Dimitroff nosing around in the top 10 could become very relevant if Jones slips into the teens, as quite a few mocks have him doing. If the Alabama Crimson Tide star starts nearing the middle of the round, don't be surprised to see the Falcons pull the trigger.

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. Check it all out at SB Nation's NFL Draft hub and our NFL Draft blog Mocking the Draft. For more Atlanta Falcons draft discussion, join The Falcoholic.
