2011 NFL Mock Draft: Rounds 1-2

The 2011 offseason is upon us. And with the college bowl season over, and the East/West Shrine game, Senior Bowl, and other college football talent showcases in full swing, it is time for my first mock draft.

We’ll get things started this year with the first two rounds. After all, the Raiders traded away their first round pick to acquire Richard Seymour two seasons ago. Since this is a Raider site — and Oakland won’t pick until the second round — we need to predict until the Raiders are on the clock, and a bit beyond.

The Carolina Panthers will get things started and set the ball rolling:
