Last-minute buzz causing movement
Prospects shifting up and down the board as the first round approaches
The 2011 NFL draft is mere hours away and we continue to hear rumors and buzz about various teams and players, but here's our full, updated seven-round projection as things stand right now.
All signs still point to the Panthers betting on Newton's tremendous upside with the No. 1 pick.
Miller is a bit undersized for a 4-3 defensive end, but he has room to add a little bulk to his frame and will help provide the Broncos with an improved pass rush.
Dareus has the overall skill set to play anywhere along the defensive line,and in any scheme, so he'll fit well in Buffalo's flexible 3-4 system.
Smith played end in college but has the tools to move to outside linebacker in Arizona's 3-4 scheme and provide pass-rush help off the edge.
How might things play out beyond the top five? Where will the top quarterbacks land? Which teams will benefit from a deep defensive line class? And how might things play out all the way to the 254th and final pick? ESPN Insiders get all the answers.
