2011 NFL Mock Draft: Derek Sherrod To Steelers?

I had to chuckle at Rob Rang's latest mock draft at CBSSports.com. Not because of its quality, but because of the way he thinks the Ravens and Steelers' picks will go. He has the Steelers taking Mississippi State offensive lineman Derek Sherrod, and as far as I can tell, that would be a great value for a late first-round pick. Sherrod nearly always ranks in the first round in mock drafts, and is often in the first half of it. (Here's a scouting report.)

One pick before that, though, Rang has the Ravens taking .... wait for it ... Mike Pouncey, brother of Steelers 2010 first-rounder Maurkice Pouncey. That sure would make the Steelers-Ravens rivalry even more compelling, wouldn't it? Anyway, Rang also has the Panthers taking LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson with the first overall pick.

Things work out a bit differently in Chad Reuter's most recent mock, over at CBS. He has Sherrod going to the Cowboys at No. 9 overall, the Ravens taking a different offensive lineman (Penn State's Stefen Wisniewski), and the Steelers taking Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt, also a sensible pick. Rang has the Panthers taking Clemson's Da'Quan Bowers and the Broncos taking Peterson with the second pick.
