2011 NFL Mock Draft: Julio Jones Still A Mock St. Louis Ram

The 2011 NFL Mock Draft momentum has shifted from Julio Jones to Corey Liuget in most St. Louis Rams-related mocks, but SB Nation's latest Mock Draft is a pre-NFL-Combine throwback, letting Jones fall all the way to the Rams at 14. Here's how it happens: A.J. Green falls to six, with the WR-hungry Cincinnati Bengals drafting Blaine Gabbert at four; the Washington Redskins take enigmatic DE Cameron Jordan at 10; and so falls Julio Jones, Sam Bradford's new favorite person. 

Is it plausible? Turf Show Times says plausible, if not likely. For them it comes down to an early run on the draft's offensive tackles—if the Buffalo Bills pass on Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert in favor of Von Miller the Bengals can take a quarterback, and then A.J. Green can go to the Cleveland Browns, the first clear wide receiver-hungry team. Then it's a matter of the Washington Redskins drafting someone other than Julio Jones—which, for me, is where things become slightly less clear.

I wouldn't stop work on that homemade Corey Liuget jersey, but there are still other options on the NFL Mock Draft table—even Julio Jones.
