We’re back and welcome to The Draft Matters’ 2011 NFL Mock Draft. This will be updated on a weekly basis to give you the most accurate mock draft on the web.

We’re back in action and will be posting our 2011 NFL Mock Draft soon. Check back as updates will be regular and frequent.

The Draft Matters recently participated in an inter-site 2010 NFL Mock Draft along with many other NFL Draft websites. Here are the results:

1. St. Louis Rams – Sam Bradford – QB – Oklahoma

St. Louis is basically an expansion team at this point (6 wins in 3 years). The safe choice would be to select the widely regarded best player in the draft, Ndamukong Suh. The Nebraska defensive tackle would help the Rams run defense (opponents averaged 4.4 yards per carry and rushed for 2,201 yards last season) and provide a push up the middle.  However, this year’s draft is exceptionally deep at defensive tackle. St. Louis will be able to find help at DT in the 2nd and 3rd round. No position can energize and turnaround a franchise faster than quarterback. The Rams were an absolute disaster on offense last year (a league low 175 points scored and only 16 offensive touchdowns). St. Louis is not going to win many games until they start scoring points and that begins with the right triggerman. Kyle Boller should be a backup and the Marc Bulger era is over. The Rams will make Sam Bradford the top pick in the draft and begin the resurrection of their offense. The 2008 Heisman Trophy winner’s draft stock will climb when he demonstrates during March and April workouts that his surgically repaired throwing shoulder is 100% healthy.
