Todd McShay's 2011 NFL mock draft extends to the second and third rounds of the draft, which happening tonight. He released his third round mock draft today. His second round mock came out yesterday with this first round. And how to the St. Louis Rams fare McShay's next two frames after landing North Carolina DE Robert Quinn in the first round?
It's already broken. McShay had the Rams picking Pitt WR Jonathan Baldwin in the second round of his mock draft. Baldwin, however, was picked by the Kansas City Chiefs with the 26th pick in the first round. Interestingly enough, McShay's mock draft has Torrey Smith, Tandon Doss, Randall Cobb and Greg Little off the board in the second round, in that order. I'd love to see the Rams take Greg Little. Is he a second round pick?
At running back, McShay's mock draft has Mikel Leshoure picked at 58 overall by the Ravens, an Ryan Williams picked at 64 by the Packers. Those are the only two running backs to be picked in the second round of his mock draft. It seems unlikely that the second round will unfold that way with regard to running backs. The Rams have some running backs ranked pretty highly on their board. It's unlikely they'll get out of the second round without a running back.
In the third round of McShay's mock draft the Rams get their running back with Johnny White of North Carolina...another UNC player.
Last night's draft results were a good reminder that anything can happen, and mock draft predictions, unless you're Rick Gosselin, don't mean much when the shooting starts.
