Cameron Jordan's draft stock has been skyrocketing all year. The only thing that will slow it down is the NFL Draft, when he will undoubtedly be chosen in the first round. He has several suitors and some speculate that teams may even trade up to draft him. Let's take a look at the latest round of mock drafts to see where he might end up:
- The latest mock draft from ESPN's Todd McShay has Jordan following his father's footsteps to Minnesota as the 12th overall pick. Kiper also has Jordan as a backup plan for Houston (11th), New England (17th), and San Diego (18th). Chances are he won't be around in time for the Patriots or Chargers to choose him, which is why he's a backup plan for them.
- Although Sports Illustrated predicts that Minnesota will trade up to earn two first-round picks, they will be determined to choose Jordan with their 12th pick.
- Yahoo/Pro Football Weekly predict Minnesota will choose Jake Locker, which drops Jordan two spots to 14th, where the St Louis Rams will draft him.
- CBS has two mock drafts: Rob Rang has Jordan going to Minnesota and Chad Reuter has Jordan teaming up with last year's tenth overall pick Tyson Alualu in Jacksonville (16th).
- BleacherReport predicts Cam will head south to join the San Diego Chargers (18th).
- WalterFootball predicts Jordan will end up with New England (17th), though he is a possibility for Washington (10th), Houston (11th) and Minnesota (12th).
After the jump we look at where Vereen, Conte, and Mohamed might end up and look ahead to the 2012 draft, where Bryan Anger will likely be the top punter.
- Bryan Anger is the top punting prospect for the 2012 draft according to Mel Kiper.
- Walter Football projects the rest of the draft: Shane Vereen joins Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay in the 3rd round (96th), Chris Conte goes to Tennessee in the 5th round (142nd), and Mike Mohamed goes to Atlanta in the 7th round (229th).
- JO reports from Tuesday's practice, where Tedford said that TE Spencer Ladner will miss the next four months with either a torn meniscus or torn MCL. Dave Wilkerson returned to practice after missing four with a hip flexor injury. BearTerritory.net has more quotes from Tedford.
- Shane Vereen, Kevin Riley, Cameron Jordan, and others attended the 2011 49ers Local Pro Day.
- Former Cal O-lineman Richard Fisher works with Webcor Builders, the contractors for the Memorial Stadium Renovation. Fisher's degree in civil engineering makes this the perfect job to blend with his experience with the football team.
