2011 NFL Mock Draft: Todd McShay Projects Seven Rounds

Todd McShay of ESPN.com has done his final mock draft for ESPN (via ESPN In$ider, so no link), and has projected a full seven rounds worth of selections. For the Vikings, he has a somewhat surprising choice, as he has the Vikings tabbing Boston College offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo with the 12th overall selection.

McShay says this about the selection:

Castonzo has the size and skills to step in immediately and allow the Vikings to shuffle their offensive line to better fit their current personnel.

So McShay has the Vikings shuffling their offensive line. Shockingly, he also has them not drafting a quarterback with any of their nine selections. Here is who McShay has the Vikings taking the rest of the way.

43rd pick - Rahim Moore, safety, UCLA
106th pick - Chris Hairston, offensive tackle, Clemson
139th pick - Greg Romeus, defensive end, Pittsburgh
150th pick - Jonas Mouton, linebacker, Michigan
172nd pick - Ricardo Lockette, wide receiver, Fort Valley State
200th pick - Daniel Hardy, tight end, Idaho
215th pick - Kris O'Dowd, center, Southern California
236th pick - Zach Clayton, defensive tackle, Auburn

There are too many variables to accurately project a seven-round draft, in my opinion, but it's kind of cool of McShay to give it a try.
