2011 NFL Mock Draft - Two Players Emerging As Front-Runners

If you have been tracking mock drafts over the past two months, you shouldn't be surprised to see all defensive lineman or outside linebackers being selected for the New York Jets at No. 30. However, at this point it seems like two players are rising to the top as being the most likely selections, Akeem Ayers and Phil Taylor. The Jets could use a boost at defensive line or outside linebacker and either pick would likely be popular with the fanbase.
