BBV Community Mock Draft 2011: Second Round Begins

We have reached the second round of our 2011 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft, the first time we have done two rounds. The first four picks are after the jump, and I am particularly intrigued to see your reaction to 'Bigbluethruandthru' grabbing quarterback Christian Ponder of Florida State for the Buffalo Bills with the 34th pick.

Personally, I think the selection of Ponder is brilliant. In our draft the Bills have now selected cornerback Patrick Peterson, who might be the best defensive player in the draft, and Ponder. Without doubt, they need a future franchise quarterback and the move to pass on Blaine Gabbert and still wind up with a top-tier guy looks like a great one to me.

New England (33rd overall) -- Jabaal Sheard, DE, Pittsburgh

This player was one of the same players I was considering with my last pick, but wasn't sure about the spot for Need/Value. At pick 33 Jabaal Sheard is a great deal, who's run stopping and pass rushing abilities could make him a very formitable 3-4 outside linebacker. -- DmaninBlue

Buffalo (34th overall) -- Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State

"Future franchise QB needed, ran a pro style offense, arm-strength issues seem fixed, was MVP of Senior Bowl for team Chan Gailey coached, seems a safer pick than potential Ryan Leaf 2.0 (Mallett)." -- Bigbluethruandthru

Cincinnati (35th) overall -- Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State

The Bengals took Blaine Gabbert by necessity in the first round. They have a ton of other holes, including defensive tackle. Paea fills one of them -- Ed Valentine (I made this pick myself to get the second round moving)

Denver (36th overall) -- Brooks Reed, DE/OLB, Arizona

Reed is a good athlete who has a very quick burst and first step, and he is known for making plays on the quarterback in the backfield. Unlike Fairley, Reed does not have any noted character or off-field issues. However, he will be a 24-year old rookie. -- Mike Fiammetta

Top Players Left

I figure at this point in the draft showing a listing of some of the top-rated players still available will be helpful. I know not everyone studies all the names and knows who these players are. I will use the Top 100 Ranking by SB Nation's Mocking The Draft for this. There are several other sources, and these lists are highly subjective, but we will stay in house for this one.

Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois
Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State
