2011 NFL Draft Results, Round Two: Ras-I Dowling, Aaron Williams First Two Picks

The New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills selected two potential Steelers picks with the first two picks in the second round. The Pats picked Virginia corner Ras-I Dowling, while the Bills took Texas’ Aaron Williams with the second pick. That’s a drag for the Steelers – not that hit was terribly likely that either of those guys would get to them, but their selection early on probably decreases the chances that a good corner will get to the Steelers at pick No. 63. (Also, the annoyingly smart Patriots get a good player.) If the Steelers can’t find a corner they like, they may grab an offensive lineman.

The Cincinnati Bengals took TCU quarterback Andy Dalton, as expected. The 49ers then took Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The Browns then took Pitt DE Jabaal Sheard, who was widely expected to go in the second round. Sheard was the second Pitt player to be selected, as the Chiefs took wide receiver Jon Baldwin late in the first round on Thursday.
