Jordan to Chargers, Giants up in our mock

With the 18th pick in the 2011 AFC East reader mock draft, the San Diego Chargers select ... Cameron Jordan, defensive end, California.

There's a run on defensive ends.

For the third consecutive pick, and the fifth out of the past eight, readers took a collegiate defensive end off the board.

Jordan was another clear-cut selection. No other candidate received more than one vote in our 32-part do-it-yourself draft series, which will be matched up against the final mock drafts compiled by ESPN draft experts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay.
