2011 Stock Lemon NFL Mock Draft: Picks 9-16


It's time four our second installment of the 2011 Stock Lemon NFL Mock Draft

9. Dallas Cowboys: Tyron Smith, OT, USC

10. Washington Redskins: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas

11. Houston Texans: Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina

12. Minnesota Vikings: Cameron Jordan, DE, California

13. Detroit Lions: Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska

14. St. Louis Rams: Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue

15. Miami Dolphins: Mike Pouncey, OL, Florida

16. Jacksonville Jaguars: J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin

We smell a run! After a curveball thrown at the 10-spot with Ryan Mallet going three rounds higher than he should (alright, fine, one round), defensive lineman are taken off the board in a hurry. Many of the best athletes in this year's draft belong to this stellar group of D-lineman, and this DE run will be both based on need and reaction. All the defensive lineman being plucked up will leave for some great players at other positions to slide, as will be the case with Prince Amukamara, who is the steal of our fictional draft thus far.

The second half of our mock draft is still to come, so stay tuned!
