Looking back at the 2011 draft, Cam Heyward vs Ras-I-Dowling

I remember in 2011, with the sting still fresh from the superbowl loss, and we as Steeler Nation were looking at the draft and as possible defensive back options for the first round. A name that I read a bunch was Ras-I-Dowling, now truth be told I did not know a lot about him other that what I read here, and I knew nothing about and did not even hear of Cam Heyward. I read some posts about the Steelers "reaching" for Dowling in the end of the first round. Now in the end the Patriots drafted Dowling a few pics later in the begining of the second round. After 2 years in the NFL, how does anyone feel about if the Steelers got good value in drafting Heyward vs what the Patriots got in Dowling and if he would have worked in our system?
