Here you go:

Rd 1: Jared Odrick, DT, 65 305lbs, Penn State
Rationale: DL set for next 5-7 years

Rd 2: Brandon Spikes, ILB, 63 250lbs, Florida
Rationale: Learn for a year behind Farrior. Solid performer for years in toughest conference in the country

Rd 3: Ben Tate, RB, Auburn, 511 220lbs, Auburn
Rationale: Legit #2 which we lack on roster

Rd 4: Amari Spievey, CB, 511 185lbs, Iowa
Rationale: Good CB with time to develop and challenge current CBs

Rd 5a: AJ Edds, OLB, 64, 246lbs, Iowa
Rationale: Depth at OLB which is non existenton current roster

Rd 5b: Zac Robinson, QB, 63 214lbs, Ok St
Rationale: The Ben insurance policy

Rd 5c: Joe Webb, WR, 63 223lbs, UAB
Rationale: The Santonio insurance policy plus Steelers were one of four teams at his Pro Day watching him.

Rd 6: Barry Church, S, 62 222lbs, Toledo
Rationale: Depth at Safety and Special teamer

Rd 7a: Eric Cook, C, 66 318lbs, New Mexico
Rationale: Competition at Center, but has time to develop under Kugler

Rd 7b: Daryl Clark, QB/RB, 62 235lbs, Penn State
Rationale: Good "slash" player who could be back up passer, rusher and special teams on game day. Lots of flexibility.

*Disclaimer: IF Spiller is still on the board at #18 when we select, he becomes the pick. I just think he will be gone several picks before we go although I hope for a Mendenhall situation.

Joe Webb played QB at college as well. So you have 3 QB's in your mock. I would replace Webb with a more polished WR or Clark with another player...

Excellent mock draft. I may switch up and put one of the second tier NT's in there personally but this genuinely looks like a Steelers draft to me.

I see where JOM is coming from ie a more fluid receiver than Webb but with Ward, Holmes, Wallace & Randle El on the team, he'll have some time to just watch and learn. And a 6'3" guy will be our replacement for Sweed if he doesn't make it.

Couldnt argue too much with the first 4 picks but the last half doesnt thrill me. The first 4 would be sweet by me!!!

I would look to add Martin Tevaseau, NT, 6'1" 329lbs from UNLV as a priority UDFA acquisition. We may have inside track since he is Frank "The Tank" Summers cousin.

I considered putting him where I have Daryl Clark and may still do that.

That is an excellent mock draft you shouldn't change a thing regardless. :P

Love it except for Zac Robinson. Dude's arm is weak. He will be totally ineffective at Heinz field in December. Get us one of the strong arm mid-rounders instead.

He apparently had a good Pro Day with the Steelers in attendance

Yeah, he is a smart kid and would be a great prospect if he didn't have a candy arm. I think his arm may be worse than Brady Quinn's.

I think this is a sham.

Really, I can't even look at this with any level of serious consideration- without CJ Spiller on there.

:lol:
