2011 NFL Mock Draft: Steelers Look To Build On Strong, Albeit Disappointing, Season

The Steelers had a successful year, even if it didn't end the way fans would have hoped for. With a good draft, they should be in a position to challenge for a Super Bowl Title again next year. SB Nation has been running first round mock drafts for a few weeks now, but this week they expand to two rounds. Twice the speculation, at least three times the fun.

In their latest mock, SB Nation has the Steelers taking Texas cornerback Aaron Williams in the first round.

After watching William Gay get lit up in Super Bowl XLV, the Steelers would do well to replenish their depth at cornerback.

That seems to be a theme with their first round picks over the last few weeks. The Steelers could use some help in the defensive secondary, and if Williams is the best cornerback prospect available, he will be a good pick. With their second round selection, SB Nation has the Steelers adding depth up front with Arkansas offensive lineman DeMarcus Love.

The Steelers should improve along the offensive line with guys returning off the injured list, but depth remains a concern. Love can play guard, too.
