NFL Mock Draft has an updated NFL mock draft. The site currently projects Georgia receiver A.J. Green as the top pick, with LSU’s Patrick Peterson going thrid. View the article, below.

A.J. Green #8 of the Georgia Bulldogs pulls in this touchdown reception against Demond Washington #14 of the Auburn Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium on November 13, 2010 in Auburn, Alabama.


Carolina Panthers: A.J. Green, WR, Georgia 
With Andrew Luck going back to school, this pick is now down to three players: A.J. Green, Da’Quan Bowers and Nick Fairley. Mel Kiper and Sun Tan Man will probably have Bowers up here in their mock updates, but I personally wouldn’t touch him. First of all, he fills the lesser of the three needs between wide receiver, defensive tackle and defensive end. And second, Bowers is an athletic freak who posted great numbers this year, but he has some really bad tape and one has to wonder why he didn’t produce in his first two years at Clemson.

Nick Fairley satisfies the greatest need, and I think there’s a much greater chance he’s the No. 1 pick in the wake of his tremendous Co-National Championship performance (congrats, by the way, to Auburn and TCU for winning it all.) The question is, would Carolina’s new regime pay No. 1 overall money to a defensive tackle who is labeled a dirty player? Fairley could actually lead the NFL in personal foul penalties next year.
