Todd McShay Round Two NFL Mock Draft: Many Pass Rushing Prospects Available

As many have noted, the 2011 NFL Draft is very deep when it comes to pass rushing defensive linemen and outside linebackers. The mock draft from Todd McShay demonstrates this with numerous interesting football players in the second round who could help a team get after the opposing quarterback.

In his final mock draft before the actual 2011 NFL Draft, McShay listed three top flight pass rushing prospects in the first round who weren't actually taken. Arizona's Brooks Reed was slotted to go 28th, Da'Quan Bowers of Clemson 27th, and OLB Akeem Ayers of UCLA 30th to the Jets.

All three of those guys are still on the board and available early in the second round for a team like the Arizona Cardinals who need help at that position.Another couple of names to throw out there are Jabaal Sheard, DE, Pittsburgh and Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia.

There were a total of eight defensive ends taken in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft and only one outside linebacker, Von Miller. Bottom line, there's still quality talent to be had when the Cardinals sixth pick of the second round is on the clock.
