2011 NFL Mock Draft: Jabaal Sheard, Lance Kendricks To Atlanta Falcons

With just over a week left, SB Nation’s weekly 2011 NFL mock draft is getting a bit more detailed. It’s a two-rounder this week, sending Cam Newton No. 1 overall to the Carolina Panthers.

The Atlanta Falcons get Pittsburgh Panthers DE Jabaal Sheard and Wisconsin Badgers TE Lance Kendricks. Both are tremendous athletes, but neither is without question marks — Sheard was charged with a misdemeanor last year for getting in a fight, while Kendricks isn’t known as the best run blocker despite playing in a thunderous, plodding offense.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers get Missouri Tigers DE Aldon Smith and Georgia Bulldogs OL Clint Boling, while the New Orleans Saints take Iowa Hawkeyes DE Adrian Clayborn and Illinois Fighting Illini LB Martez Wilson. With their second pick, the Panthers grab Alabama Crimson Tide RB Mark Ingram, apparently collecting Heisman Trophy winners from Alabama.
