Scouts Inc. analyst Todd McShay has the Steelers taking Georgia LB Jarvis Jones and USC WR Robert Woods in two-round mock draft.

Scouts Inc. analyst Todd McShay doused the flame of the Triangle of Authority, who earlier announced the selection of wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson with the 17th overall pick.

In McShay's world, the Rams grab Patterson at No. 16, and the Steelers take Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones at 17. The Steelers then select USC wide receiver Robert Woods with the 48th overall pick.

Jones is probably the odds-on favorite for the Steelers at 17, judging by the Mockiverse's consensus reactions. Not all are sold on Jones, questioning his ability to take on blocks and his explosive ability in pass rush.

Woods has a long list of recently failed USC receivers ahead of him, but is said to be a hard worker and potentially an explosive playmaker outside the numbers.

It wouldn't be a shock to see the Steelers go with a pass rushing threat and a receiver with their first two picks, so McShay's projection doesn't come as much of a surprise.
