NFL Draft Order: Bengals To Pick Fourth, Browns Sixth

The Steelers and the other 11 NFL playoff teams still don't know exactly when they'll be picking in the 2011 NFL draft, but all the rest of the picks are set. The top AFC North pick will be held by the Bengals, who will pick after the Panthers, Broncos and Bills, respectively. Cincinnati could take Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green. The Cardinals come next, followed by another AFC North team, the Cleveland Browns, at No. 6. SB Nation's latest mock draft has the Browns taking Alabama wideout Julio Jones.

The Ravens and Steelers, of course, will pick somewhere near the end of the first round. The Steelers really need offensive linemen, and have done well in the past at getting good value out of late first round picks (Heath Miller, Rashard Mendenhall, Maurkice Pouncey, etc.). There should still be top offensive line talents available late in the first round, so picking late shouldn't be the worst thing in the world for them.

The Patriots, unfortunately, will have two first-round picks, thanks to the Raiders - but, as SB Nation Atlanta points out, at least the Raiders are only the 17th pick this year.
