Kyle Wilson...he's not the BPA, but he is the BCBA. If we draft a BPA, I'd have to say Brandon Graham.

Mike Iupati OG, Maurkice Pouncey OC, Kyle Wilson CB or Brandon Graham OLB

I think I'd be happy with either Iupati or Wilson.

With Iupati at RG, the Steelers could run the ball to the right with authority, running behind Iupati and Colon, with Kemo pulling to lead the way. It would be great to see the Steelers re-establish a smash mouth running game. If Iupati in the first, I think they grab Kareem Jackson in the second. Not sure if they'll have to trade up to get him, but they certainly have the ammo if they need to.

With Wilson, the Steelers add to a position that is a need now and in the future. You can never have enough corners in the NFL.

I watched the Florida/Alabama game last night on DTV. I watch several players closely but Pouncey in particular on how he handled Cody & Mcclain. One thing is clear. Iupati might have more upside and could move out to OT...A more difficult position to fill. But if Pouncey picks up the playbook and assignments he could move Hartwig off the roster coming out of the preseason. He is ready now. I personally don't think Iupati will see the field right away. He might not even see it this year. He isn't any less of a player but he is raw with alot of upside. I truely feel Pouncey could push Hartwig out from day 1. He made Cody look like a nobody and on the plays Cody took off...He moved him completely out of the hole. He got to the second level on Mcclain no problem. One of the things you look for is how much ground the C gives up after the snap in run blocking and if he can hold the front of the pocket in pass protection. If he is the Steelers selection, you could be as excited about him as Iupati. I just hope they trade down a little to get him.

Maurkice Pouncey, no doubt.

Trade up with Tennessee to take Haden at 1.16.

Give up:

Our 1.18 pick is worth 900, 4.116 is worth 62, 5.155 is worth 29.4, and 6.188 is worth 16.2. That's 1007.6 points.

The Titans 1.16 is worth 1000 points and 7.222 is worth 2.6 points. That's 1002.6 points.

I'd be willing to sacrifice those 5 extra points if it would give us:

1.16 Joe Haden, CB, Florida
2.52
3.82
5.151
5.164(c)
5.166(c)
7.222
7.242(c)

We get the top CB in the draft, both in terms of coverage ability as well as run support, keep both of our day two picks in a draft that is unusually strong in the second and third rounds, and still have 5 picks on day three (8 picks total).

I knew someone would be all over that trade. They could try to trade back in the 2nd to pick up a 4th if needed.

:nono Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is starting to look like the biggest and baddest CB in the draft. I think he's every bit as talented as Haden and his numbers jump off the chart.

Iupati, Wilson, Graham or McCourty

Just say no to Pouncey!!!!!

A.O.A. could be the next Ike Taylor (excellent athletic specimen from a small school to emerge as a top notch starting CB) or the next Ricardo Colclough (excellent athletic specimen from a small school to fall on his face when faced with the jump in competition from Division II to the NFL). I do like Owusu-Ansah (if he's available in the 3rd round, I'd be quite happy with that), but I don't think you can say he is every bit as talented as Haden at this point. Remember, A.O.A. faced WR's from Slippery Rock, Lock Haven, Clarion, and Kutztown, while Haden faced elite SEC WR's such as Julio Jones (Alabama), A.J. Green (Georgia), Brandon LaFell (LSU), etc. That's a HUGE difference.

Graham would be way too much value to pass on.

Wilson had some off the field issues...count him out.

Then I would say Pouncey, then Odrick and Iupati.
