Believe it or not, we are just over two weeks from the 2011 NFL Draft. All of the speculations, rumors, and misinformation will soon come to a head on April 28 at Radio City Music Hall. Until then, of course, the number of rumors will only increase and the smokescreens will only grow darker.

For the third consecutive time, the amount of analysts predicting Mark Ingram as the 15th pick continues to decrease - more evidence that Ingram's stock is indeed falling; or, rather, that the value of running backs in the NFL Draft is decreasing. Our first edition of this series back in early March had 73% of the mock drafts predicting Ingram as the Dolphins' pick.

Meanwhile, the "experts" are beginning to pile onto the Mike Pouncey bandwagon. Pouncey saw a dramatic increase in the number of mocks sending him to the Dolphins. But I will not be joining that bandwagon anytime soon. I do not believe drafting a guard in the middle of round one is good value. Nor do I feel as if Pouncey is that great of a prospect to warrant a mid-first pick. If his last name wasn't Pouncey, his stock would not be so high.

Still two weeks to go and I expect a lot of shuffling in these mocks as the draft analysts attempt to flex their prognosticating muscle.
