McShay pegs five from Big 12 in first round

NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay released a mock draft on Wednesday, and had four players from the Big 12 in his first round. You'll need ESPN Insider to read the whole thing, where he's posted more complete comments, but here's who he has going in the first round:

5. Denver Broncos -- Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska

Amukamara is more talented than any available prospect who would fit the team's three-man front. Champ Bailey's days with the Broncos could be numbered so bringing in a young talent like Amukamara would make sense.

9. Arizona Cardinals -- Nate Solder, OL, Colorado

Solder is the most complete talent in a pedestrian group of 2011 offensive line prospects.

20. Kansas City Chiefs -- Jeremy Beal, DE, Oklahoma

The Chiefs need a legitimate edge rusher and Beal has the type of size and versatility that they look for in an outside linebacker.

21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Von Miller, LB, Texas A&M

Miller has a freakish combination of size, speed and athletic ability. Strongside linebacker in a 4-3 defense could be the right fit for him.

22. Tennessee Titans - Aaron Williams, CB, Texas

Williams is one of many talented underclass cornerbacks who could be jockeying for position in the bottom half of the first round. His instincts in coverage and his experience playing both inside and outside will only help his cause.
