Round Two Mock Draft (Update): Recent Mocks Have Steelers Picking Orlando Franklin, Marcus Gilbert

Here's a look at what to expect the Steelers to do with NFL Draft pick No. 63 in the second round, based on recent mock drafts: Todd McShay has the Steelers taking Miami offensive lineman Orlando Franklin. A recent mock at SBNation.com has the Steelers taking Florida offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert.

McShay was one of the few to correctly predict that the Steelers would take defensive end Cameron Heyward in the first round but, as much as offensive line is a need for the Steelers, cornerback is a very critical one, and the fact that Aaron Williams and Brandon Harris didn't get taken in the first round increases the chances that the Steelers will be able to settle on a corner they like.

In other words, while Gilbert did have a pre-draft visit with the Steelers, it's pretty hard to imagine the Steelers passing on a corner in both of the first two rounds. Williams, Harris and Ras-I Dowling look pretty unlikely to fall all the way to the Steelers, but someone like Louisville's Johnny Patrick or Texas' Curtis Brown might make sense.
