2011 NFL Mock Draft: Is Julio Jones On The Cleveland Browns' List?

Over at Mocking The Draft there's some interesting news for those on the internet putting together their final 2011 NFL Mock Draft: The Cleveland Browns are targeting two players or a trade for their first-round pick, which is the sixth overall. The Browns have been connected to Julio Jones on a few occasions—Mel Kiper and Todd McShay were fans at one point—but MTD's best guess is that those two players are Robert Quinn and Da'Quan Bowers, two members of the draft's bumper crop of defensive ends. That's good news for those of us still holding on to the vague hope that the St. Louis Rams might end up with Julio Jones, but it leaves a number of teams still interested in the wide receiver. 

The two remaining keys will be news on what the Washington Redskins, at No. 10, and the Cincinnati Bengals plan to do with their picks. Will the Bengals, worried about Carson Palmer's retirement threats, select who's left from Blaine Gabbert and Cam Newton, or do they go with A.J. Green? Will the Redskins take Jones? 

Furthermore, will the Rams trade up to the Browns at number six? Well—probably not.
