2011 NFL Draft: Post Super Bowl SB Nation Mock Draft

With Super Bowl XLV behind us, we're going to hear about two NFL items for most of the next year: collective bargaining talks and the NFL Draft. Today, SB Nation offers their first post-Super Bowl projection. Blaine Gabbert moves back in front of the Cowboys, to Tennessee at eight, but Prince Amukamara is slotted at seven. The Cowboys once again get Robert Quinn.

9. Dallas Cowboys: Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina. There are several directions Dallas could go with this pick, but if a potentially elite pass rusher like Quinn is available, he'd make a great investment. Quinn's upside is significantly higher than that of current starter Anthony Spencer.

Nick Fairley is projected at number one once again, with Patrick Peterson, Marcell Dareus, A.J. Green and Von Miller rounding out the top five. Colorado's Nate Solder has distinguished himself as the top offensive lineman in the draft. This mock projects him to #12 now, so he's within range. Brandon Harris, the third rated corner in the draft, is up to #13, so he is likely also on the Cowboys' radar. Seven of the top nine picks are still defenders, with numerous edge rushers sitting in the range of Dallas.
