2011 NFL Mock Draft: 'Live' SB Nation Bay Area Mock Draft

The 2011 NFL Draft is fast approaching, and without a free agency period beforehand, team needs are largely the same as they appeared to be at the end of the 2010 season. Combine workouts, private workouts and individual interviews coupled with known team needs are the best indication of where most players will land. The top teams in the draft can go a number of directions, but the best players are clearly ranked and this makes it much easier to go with BPA (best player available) and team need. Andrew Luck remaining at Stanford seriously messed up the projections for the first overall pick - he easily would be the pick in 99.99% of mock drafts for Carolina, but now things are getting murky. Fortunately, the private workout landscape is taking shape, and it's time for SB Nation Bay Area to throw its hat into the mock draft ring.

We've already got a stream with mock draft information pertaining to the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders with over sixty updates since its creation, so follow along with that because there will continue to be daily posts within it, but now we're going to kick off our own mock draft, taking us through at least the first two rounds and potentially onward if we find that our expertise can sustain us.

If you've clicked around the site a little, you know how the StoryStreams work here at SB Nation Bay Area, but if not - a simple bookmark of this post will provide you with the mock draft as each pick is posted over its entirety. Expect two-to-three picks a day as we move through as much of the draft as we can take!

First on the clock is the Carolina Panthers, that pick will be coming shortly.
