NFL Draft 2011: Cam Newton, Marcell Dareus Take Top Spots In Latest Mock

SB Nation's final weekly 2011 NFL mock draft by Brian Galliford and Dan Kadar sends Cam Newton No. 1 overall to the Carolina Panthers, a placement that's become the most common for the Auburn Tigers QB. The other side of the Iron Bowl takes No. 2, with Marcell Dareus of the Alabama Crimson Tide going No. 2 to the Denver Broncos. 

Georgia Bulldogs WR A.J. Green heads to the Cincinnati Bengals at No. 4, while the Dallas Cowboys trade up to No. 5 to take LSU Tigers CB Patrick Peterson. Yes! A mock draft with trades! 

North Carolina Tar Heels DE Robert Quinn is the first ACC player off the board, going No. 6 to the Cleveland Browns. Clemson Tigers DE Da'Quan Bowers, once a popular No. 1 pick, finally lands at No. 17, joining Ndamukong Suh in Detroit.

All told, the Mocking The Draft crew sends 10 SEC players into the first round, along with four from the ACC.
