2011 NFL Mock Draft: Julio Jones Baiting Continues For Rams

O, contrarian SB Nation 2011 NFL Mock Draft, how I'm contractually obligated not to resist your Julio Jones-bating ways. Back before the 2011 NFL Combine, when boys were boys, men were boys, and Julio Jones was just a boy who might actually fall 14 spots to the St. Louis Rams in the first round of the draft, the SB Nation mock always had the receiver-starved Rams pick a defensive stud instead. Now that everybody thinks Jones will go to the Washington Redskins at 10 they've swung to the other side—Julio Jones falls all the way to the Rams at 14 after the Redskins go contrarian-defensive and select Cameron Jordan. 

The Rams could definitely use Julio Jones, who would immediately become one of Sam Bradford's prime targets, but it's hard to see a scenario, post-Combine, in which it happens, unless they trade up. In this case, it took a mock draft in which A.J. Green falls to the Browns at six, and then the Redskins pass at 10. 

Definitely a possibility, but it's one I'd probably be healthier not considering. SB Nation's goal in its 2011 NFL Mock Draft coverage is to keep me from being mentally healthy.
