Hopefully you're not holding your breath on this one. Auburn junior defensive tackle Nick Fairley will announce on Friday whether or not he'll enter the 2011 NFL Draft.

Fairley had a stellar junior season with 24 tackles for loss and 11.5 sacks. His efforts won him the Lombardi Award Everyone expects Fairley to enter the draft along with quarterback Cameron Newton.

The question will then become where Fairley gets drafted. The Panthers hold the No. 1 pick in the draft and have said they're going to run a 4-3 defense. That would fit Fairley's aggressive play style perfectly.

There are questions about him being a one-year wonder or if he can take on multiple blockers as a big body up front. So is Fairley worth the pick? Take a vote and let me know.
