2011 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, Two-Round Edition: Kyle Rudolph To Falcons One Way Or Another

Here's a collection of 2011 NFL mock drafts that list both first and second round projections. Links to all of them below, so you can find out who your team is expected to pick in round two, but we're focusing on the Atlanta Falcons here.

Notre Dame TE Kyle Rudolph is a very popular Atlanta pick, with half of our eight panelists sending him to the Birds. Of course, he's going anywhere from No. 59 to No. 27 to even forcing a trade -- which I guess shows you how badly our experts think the Falcons need a replacement for Tony Gonzalez. The team did work out Rudolph.

The ever-popular Adrian Clayborn makes multiple appearances as well, with several other pass rushers, some offensive tackles and a couple of speedy wide receivers also showing up.

A gathering of seven-round predictions to come here later today.
