We're almost through the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Here's a look at the middle picks of the round, selections No. 43 overall through No. 52 overall. Take a look.
2011 NFL Draft - Second Round - Picks 11-20 (Nos. 43-52)
11. Minnesota Vikings - Kyle Rudolph (TE - Notre Dame Fighting Irish): I suppose the Vikings forgot that they needed a quarterback. Ryan Mallet was still available, yet the Vikings chose to pass over him. We'll see how that plays out.
12. Detroit Lions - Titus Young (WR - Boise State Broncos): Young was the first wide receiver drafted in the second round, and will join forces with Calvin Johnson in Detroit. Lions are starting to look good (ok, well, better).
19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Da'Quan Bowers (DE - Clemson Tigers): The second straight Clemson product to be drafted, and the Bowers saga is finally over. The once-projected top pick slipped to the No. 51 overall pick.
