The 2011 NFL Draft is considered one of the greatest talent pools in NFL history. Fellow Redzone Weekly writer Nick had the idea that we should do a draft using the players drafted during the 2011 NFL Draft, and craft the best starting 22 player roster.
The rules were simple, fill out 11 offensive players and 11 defensive players and once a player is drafted, he can not be used on the other team. Nick had the 1st pick and we alternated after that.
I must admit, once we finished I was blown away at the talent on the teams we drafted. In the interest of showing just how many good players were in this draft, a few players are slightly "out of position." Example: A guy who might normally might play OLB is used as an MLB.
DE-Ryan Kerrigan, DT-Nick Fairley, DT-Muhammad Wilkerson, DE-Aldon Smith, OLB-Akeem Ayers, MLB-Malcolm Smith, OLB-Brooks Reed, CB-Richard Sherman, CB-Patrick Peterson, FS-Chris Conte, SS-Aaron Williams
