NFL Draft 2011: Five Sleepers For Offensive Line

Mocking The Draft lists five offensive line prospects who qualify as sleepers in the upcoming 2011 NFL Draft. These are good names to watch if you're a Steelers fan, particularly if the team doesn't end up drafting an offensive lineman in the first round. The five prospects are LSU's Joseph Barksdale, Indiana's James Brewer, Lehigh's Will Rackley, Wisconsin's John Moffitt, and Missouri's Tim Barnes. 

Of course, the Steelers often draft players who have had pre-draft visits with them, and the second-round-or-later offensive linemen who fit that category include Florida State's Rodney Hudson, South Carolina's Jarriel King, Florida's Marcus Gilbert, and Alabama's James Carpenter. Of Mocking The Draft's five sleepers, the only one I remember seeing connected to the Steelers in a mock draft is Brewer, in this one. SB Nation's Steelers blog Behind The Steel Curtain has also profiled Rackley, figuring he'll be a second- or third-round pick, and both BTSC and Mocking The Draft have identified Rackley as someone whose stock is improving heading into the draft on Thursday and Friday.
