2011 NFL Mock Draft: Julio Jones And St. Louis Rams Connect Again

The 2011 NFL Mock Draft, a cone of NFL lockout-related silence, is back on SB Nation, and for the second straight week it's given Julio Jones to the St. Louis Rams at 14, which is enough to make even the most war-weary lockout-watcher breathe a sigh of relief before he complains about not being able to watch Julio Jones and Sam Bradford until 2012, at the rate the negotiations are going. Head Mocker Brian Galliford likes the idea of Jones with Donnie Avery and Mark Clayton, and it says a lot about the state of the Rams' current wide receiving corps that that ostensible starting three combined to play five games in the NFL last year. 

Jones is too talented not to be in play earlier, and the Washington Redskins remain a serious threat to pick him off at 10. But with the hype from his incredible NFL Combine performance beginning to recede into the background ahead of the real draft, 2011 NFL Mock Draft-heads across the internet have begun to let him drift into Rams range. I'm as big a Danario Alexander fan as the next guy, but that's excellent news.
