The 2011 NFL draft is mere hours away and we continue to hear rumors and buzz about various teams and players, but here's our full, updated seven-round projection as things stand right now.
Record: 2-14 | Needs: QB, DT, CB, WR, DE
Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
All signs still point to the Panthers betting on Newton's tremendous upside with the No. 1 pick.
Record: 4-12 | Needs: DT, MLB, DE, TE, S
Von Miller, OLB/DE, Texas A&M
Miller is a bit undersized for a 4-3 defensive end, but he has room to add a little bulk to his frame and will help provide the Broncos with an improved pass rush.
Record: 4-12 | Needs: QB, OLB, LOT, DE, TE
Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama
Dareus has the overall skill set to play anywhere along the defensive line,and in any scheme, so he'll fit well in Buffalo's flexible 3-4 system.
Record: 4-12 | Needs: QB, WR, CB, SS, DT/p>
A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
Record: 5-11 | Needs: QB, OLB, OT/OG, TE, CB
Aldon Smith, DE/OLB, Missouri
Smith played end in college but has the tools to move to outside linebacker in Arizona's 3-4 scheme and provide pass-rush help off the edge.
