The 2011 NFL Draft looks as if it can be another draft that is heavy on the Defensive side of the ball. The Chick-Fil-A kickoff game in Atlanta on September 4th (ABC) between North Carolina and LSU is going to make for a nice showcase on that talent.

When North Carolina is on Defense it will be hard to not catch one of the future NFL stars in on a play. Robert Quinn (DE), Bruce Carter (OLB), Deunta Williams (FS), Quan Sturdivant (ILB), and Kendric Burney (CB), are all possibilities to be taken in the early rounds of the next draft.

On the offensive side of the ball, Wide Receiver Greg Little is a potential high draft pick as well. In 2010 Little led the Tar Heels with 62 receptions, 724 yards and five touchdowns. At this time we see him as a possible second round or early third round pick.

The Tar Heals will be without star Defensive Tackle, Marvin Austin, due to his indefinite suspension. Austin chose not to enter the 2010 NFL Draft so he could return to North Carolina. While it is unknown how this will effect his 2011 NFL Draft stock, it certainly can’t help matters.

While not as overflown with talent, LSU boasts some future prospects as well. Patrick Peterson (CB), Terrence Toliver(WR), Kelvin Sheppard (ILB), and Drake Nevis (DT) give a peek as to some of the names we will be hearing leading up to the draft in April.

For our fantasy football readers, this game can be candy to the eyes if you play in Dynasty leagues, especially if it uses Individual Defensive Players.
