The NFL combine is now over and the combined attention of the football world turns to the upcoming 2011 NFL Draft. Needless to say, the results of the combine had a big effect on many prospects including quarterback Blaine Gabbert who moved up to the top spot in SB Nation's 2011 NFL Mock Draft. Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara, a local kid from Glendale, Ariz., has also seen his prospects rise to the seventh spot after a strong showing on his speed tests.
This version of the mock draft has the Arizona Cardinals taking defensive end Robert Quinn from North Carolina. The opinion, which seems to be growing locally as well, is that the Cardinals will try and nab a veteran quarterback via free agency or trade and use their fifth pick to add star talent to the defensive line.
Quinn along with Von Miller are the names we are reading about most. Revenge of the Birds blog has a profile of both guys (Von Miller and Robert Quinn) and has the combine results from both.
We are all worried about the impeding lockout but don't worry, the draft will still go on so don't let all this messy labor stuff deter you from following your team or favorite prospects.
