Other day I had an interesting conversation with some buddies about whether or not a team made of all the 2011 draft picks from this year would thrive in the NFL next season and for years to come. So we put together a team full of 2011 rookies of our choice and it turned out to be a pretty beastly starting lineup.
So everyone here, please create your own team of who you would like from this class. It has to be 22 players (11 offense, 11 defense) and you can set the offense and defense to any style you want (power running offense, passing offense, 3-4 defense, 4-3 defense, etc.) So here is mine.
QB: Jake Locker RDE: JJ Watt
RB: Mark Ingrim DT: Marcell Dareus
FB: Owen Marecic LDE: Muhammed Wilkerson
WR1: AJ Green ROLB: Von Miller
LG: Benjamin Ijalana CB1: Patrick Peterson
C: Mike Pouncey CB2: Jimmy Smith
So what would your team look like? Would a group of the best 2011 rookies compete for a SB in the future?
