2011 NFL Mock Draft: Todd McShay Projects Second Round

Todd McShay has a new 2011 mock draft for the second round. This one again has the Cleveland Browns taking Da’Quan Bowers at No. 37 and the Cowboys and Lions taking cornerbacks at No. 40 and No. 44, respectively – Dallas takes Aaron Williams, and Detroit takes Ras-I Dowling. The 49ers then take Brandon Harris at No. 45. Will Rackley and Orlando Franklin both go off the board before the Steelers pick at No. 63 as well, and that leaves Wisconsin offensive lineman John Moffitt.

A few days ago, Mocking The Draft called Moffitt a sleeper among offensive line picks:

John Moffitt was a huge reason for the success of Wisconsin’s ground game this passed season. He may not have stood out during his combine workouts, but the kid is a football player. Moffitt is an all around solid player, and he will get overlooked because he is not necessarily elite in any one area. However, elite talent is not always needed to be successful at guard in the NFL. Moffitt has enough skill and all of the intangibles to be a long time starter in the NFL.

The Steelers obviously need a cornerback more, but if Williams, Dowling and Harris are gone, they might indeed consider an offensive lineman ike Moffitt or Will Rackley. This particular mock is missing Villanova's Ben Ijalana, though, and I'm not sure I see the Steelers passing on him in the second round.
