We have a nice collection of seven-round 2011 NFL mock drafts, and we have a recent Todd McShay mock draft, and now the two have become one: a seven-round Todd McShay mock draft. Whether you're a McShay fan or not, he's still just about the biggest name to do a complete mock for the entire draft.
He's the only major analyst I've seen to predict Clemson Tigers DE Da'Quan Bowers to the Atlanta Falcons at No. 27, which would be quite a tumble for the sack machine once projected as a potential No. 1. Injury concerns and poor workouts have hampered Bowers, but he could be a massive steal if he can bounce back.
Elsewhere, McShay picks Florida St. Seminoles center Rodney Hudson in round two*, Auburn Tigers OT Lee Ziemba in round three, UT-Chattanooga CB Buster Skrine in four, Louisville Cardinals RB Bilal Powell in five, West Virginia Mountaineers OLB J.T. Thomas in six and a trio of Connecticut Huskies FB Anthony Sherman, Michigan St. Spartans TE Charlie Gantt and Utah Utes center Zane Taylor in the seventh.
That's an awful lot of offensive linemen, especially considering the team already has two versatile interior OL mid-rounders from last year in the waiting in Mike Johnson and Joe Hawley.
