I doubt it will play out like this but I would be very happy. Don't really want a Center in the first, but this will fill needs.

I would be very happy with that draft. It addresses our needs in the correct priorities with correct player values and every player you've listed should/could be there at those rounds.

I hate drafting a center at 1.18 but it does make sense. Center is our most glaring weakness. Let me say that again... The weakest position on our entire roster is center. Hartwig has effectively eliminated our inside running game and play action passing which is the cornerstone of Steeler football. He also is getting Ben killed on inside blitz protection. I realize Pouncey is probably being over valued this particular year but what if we trade back and he's gone? Tennant is a big drop off in talent.

I would go with Ghee in the second but could live with Cook. CB is clearly the next greatest need.

After that, probably WR. Mitchell has tremendous size and athleticism. He won't last until the 4th but Spikes probably will so i would switch them. Spikes would fit perfectly as a BUCK ILB in our scheme where his lack of speed would not be as badly exposed and he could just thump.

We must draft another RB, Blount would then provide incredible value in that round, and serve as a complimenting power back behind Mendy.

Those are our top needs. I know people want an early round pass rusher but we can wait for next year b/c still have Timmons who can slide over if Harrison goes down.
