Ok folks,
Many names are out there who we might draft in the first but for the fun of it, pick your guy and give the reason for your selection. As the draft is concluded in round one we can look back on this thread and see who was right either by the draft pick or position.

Supers Selection:
I've been trying to break down our draft needs in combination of BPA, also taking into consideration which players probably will be selected before us. Picking at 17 could give us a need player or BPA, I'm starting to think the Steelers will select the BPA in this round and try and get the need players following round one.
Considering positions the teams above us might pick, I'm thinking only one NT will be selected before us, so we could get a darn good NT at 17, and he might be the BPA for us. We should be able to get one of the top three NT's in this draft and if so a strong possibility the Steelers will select him.
I realize there are other positions we need beside NT, but if we can get the second best NT or possibly the best NT that position might be BPA. The BPA of OLB's, ILB, LT, and G will probably be gone before we pick. WR,TE,RB are positions I think we pick later in the draft and still might find a good one and value to our team.


My Selection:

Jessie Williams or Johnathan Jenkins

Now I know you guys have other names or positions in mind and may not like my pick, thats ok, let me know yours and we can get back here in April and see who got it right.

Chuck's pre-Mock 1.0

Here you go, Lakey:

I am sure this will change a bit, including Lacy moving up (a made this before the BCS Championship game). Here's my first pre-Mock 1.0:

Round 1: Barkevious Mingo - OLB, LSU Possibilities - Minter, Okafor, Vaccaro. Linebacker is a must. I am still convinced Hightower was our pick last year until DeCastro fell in our laps.

Round 2: Eric Reid, S, LSU (Maybe Lacy here, but a RB is a definite need)

Round 3: Ed Lacy , RB - Alabama (his stock on the rise, we may need to grab him Round 2). If so, best S left is taken here.

Round 4: Zac Dysert - QB - Miami (Second in most Miami, Ohio QB records by a fellow named Roethlesberger). Big kid, time to draft a legitimate back-up QB, why not Dysert? Could be Landry as well.

Round 5: Ryan Swope, WR - Texas A&M - Big play maker - Good-bye Wallace.

Round 6: D.J. Swearinger, S - South Carolina - Play making ball-hawk that delivers big time hits. From the SEC, need I say more? Oh, Clowney's team-mate on a punishing defense.

Round 7: Brian Winters, OT - Kent State - Big time potential from a small school (my alma-mater, aka Linebacker U. (Lambert, Harrison). Also NFL players: Cribbs, Antonio Gates, and Edelman.

At this point in the process, I believe the Steelers will select Alex Okafor if available. He does a great job creating pressure. He can speed rush and bull rush. He is a good tackler and supports the run well. He has great size and could easily transition to a 4-3 if needed.

Yeah, got to help that so-called "#1 defense" even more! This is the type of move that will guaranteee Ben goes down hurt next season too and we miss the play offs. Defense isn't taking us to a play off berth.

Need to get best OL on the board in Round 1 or are you comfortable with Gilbert-Beachum-Pouncey-CeCastro-Adams to keep your franchise QB upright?

And if there is no OL worth the #17 pick? And there are no trading partners?

Do you advocate overdrafting simply to put another body on the OL?

Aren't you someone who wants the defense to focus more on sacks and turnovers? Wouldn't a pass rusher, like Mingo, help that?

A pass rusher would help that but not Mingo. Mingo reminds me of Vernon Gholston who the Jets picked a few years ago.

As far as overdrafting do you really think getting an OL who may be ranked late Round 1 at #17 is an overdraft if they fill a need? Do you really think those rankings are that correct with that much scientific precision predicting future success?

I considered what your saying, the problem is players like Warmack won't be there when we pick. Teams aren't looking for NT's as much as OL players so I felt we could get the BPA of whats left at 17.
Jessie Williams and Jenkins have the potential to dominate their position, we have Mclendon @ 280 lbs that isn't suited for NT, better suited for DE IMHO.
That leaves us with the unknown factor with Ta'amu, will he be able to get past his legal issues, and will Fangupo be good enough to play NT at a high level?
In a 3-4 defense you need players up front to open the lanes for the LB'ers to rush the passer, we haven't seen that for the last two years as the sack totals are the lowest in years. A dominate NT who can take on double team blocks will help our ends and LBer's as well.
Don't get me wrong I'm for offense too, but you tell me who would be better in round one on offense that would be available? I already stated Warmack is gone before we pick.

As for the projected O-line even I questioned that, but to be fair have any of us seen ADAMS OR GILBERT play LT? So how can we assume they will fail? Same with Beachum. I'm comfortable with Pouncey and DeCasro but as I said to be fair we have to see them play.

Gilbert played LT in college his natural position so its not like he doesen't know what to do, I'm thinking they will have Adams and Gilbert compete for that spot and the loser plays RT.

The Steelers will take the BPA, but assuming that Lewis is resigned, I see the Steelers leaning towards a OLB, ILB, S, WR or OL, in no particular order, depending on who is available.

The Steelers have invested high picks in Gilbert, Adams, DeCastro and Pouncey and I think they're going to roll with those guys and Foster as the starters going into the season. I suspect that picks on the OL will be for depth, not starters.

The offense is in dire need of skill position players, especially if both Mendenhall and Wallace leave.

On the defensive side of the ball, I'd look for pass rushers and ball hawks, but would have to really consider Te'o if he is there. If there is a NT avaialble, it's tempting to pick Casey's replacement, but the bottom line is that Hampton played fewer snaps that Cortez Allen. If you find a guy who will be a moster in the middle, I'd consider him, but if not, I'd go with Hampton on a vet minimum contract, McClendon, and Te'amu/Fangupo.

I get it Ovi. And, I agree. We need more OL. The problem is that, imho, there are only three OL worth our first round pick. Joekel, Fisher, and Warmack. I believe all will be long gone before 17. So, unless we trade up, I don't think we will get one.

I like the offensive side too, but I projected those three above gone by the time we pick, so we beef up the D-line for an option. LOS dictates the outcome of most games.

I still get a kick out of the mentality that just by drafting all these OL in the 1st round is gonna guarantee that BB doesn't get hurt again..... lol.. BB got hurt the past 2 years on plays where he stayed in there (and this isn't a knock on him, its the way he plays the game) and instead of living for another play he gets drilled...... You can put him behind 5 all pros and he can STILL go down with an injury...

Definitely could agree with that one. Preferably a BIGGER WR with speed. WR/LB in the first and second round, safety and RB in rounds 3 and 4.

Every time I hear that our two drafted tackles can't play because they haven't proven anything yet I think about Duane Brown. I forget which year it was, but Brown was projected to go in round 3-4. There was a huge run on tackles that year and he was the next OT available to the Steelers when their turn to draft came in the first. Of course we were not going to overdraft a tackle. He went a few picks later to the Texans.

That bore itself out when we faced the Texans that first season and Harrison destroyed the rook. Wow, did they ever mess up by over drafting this kid.

Fast forward to this season. Brown is a perennial pro bowler and considered top 5 tackle in the game. My point is that both Adams and Gilbert have looked somewhat ordinary, but have also shown glimpses of ability. Why is it so hard to believe that these two guys can improve. Thats what young players do, they get better with experience and coaching. Why is it that we always seem to recognize improvements in other players, but believe that what we see from our players on their first day is everything that they will ever be. I'm not saying that they will both follow the path of Duane Brown, but I understand that that is the goal and a possibility moving forward.

This is mostly in response to those who think that we need to draft a tackle.

True fact. Heck, many here gush over Brady's line in NE but even he went out for a year due to injury. A QB is still going to get popped even with the best line. IMO, we have the needed players on the roster already. Draft for depth, but I think there are other positions that need attention.

While I really have no idea, right now I'll say whoever is the highest rated TE when we pick. As I've explained before, this helps with both protection and attack. This gives Heath a partner, someone to mentor for the future and somebody to handle the load if he isn't ready physically to start the year.

Starks, Foster, Pouncey, DeCastro, Adams would be fine by me. If we can't keep Foster then Starks, Beachum/Gilbert, Pouncey, DeCastro, Adams is fine. IMO, letting one of your most consistent players on offense (i.e. Starks) walk is a huge mistake. Add in the fact that he's also your LT, it's even worse.

If the Steelers let Starks walk and Ben gets killed because of Gilbert then that is their own fault. I don't know how they can feel comfortable with Gilbert as their starting LT.

Ben needs to help Ben. Also, we need a legit #1 RB. Ben running around like a chicken with it's head cut off doesn't help him stay healthy. Maybe, by the time Ben retires, he'll learn that throwing the ball away is an acceptable option.

I get it :) Ben throwing the ball away would prevent a couple things....

1) Ben's sacks knocking us out of field goal range
2) Ben getting hurt

We can't have those happen....

Steve McLendon was 280 coming out of college. The Steelers listed him at that weight in their media guide during his first year with the team, and have never changed it since. However, at this point, McLendon is much closer to 325 lbs. than 280 lbs.

Consider that Casey was always listed at 325 lbs., even though there have been times when he was likely closer to 375 lbs. back when Tomlin had him doing wind sprints in Latrobe (I'd say his typical playing weight is in the 350 range).

That could be accurate but I still think he would make a better end. he has trouble with the run game and taking on double team blocks, but he is a better pass rusher IMHO. I like Mclendon he's scrappy and a good motor, but NT requires a someone who can stop the run and take on blocks to free up the lanes for the LB'ers.

For conversation puposes, I'll take Mclendon over Hood or Heyward......right now!

I agree with Ovi that we need to shore up the offensive line but I don't think anyone substantial will be around when we pick in the 1st. I also think we need a pure pass rusher. Someone whose only job is to get the QB. A Von Miller or Aldon Smith type. Unfortunately they don't seem to last around to pick 17 either. My next choice might be a ball hawking safety but whatever safety you pick won't start ahead of Troy and Clark.

So I think the Steelers trade back in the first round, giving up 17 for picks 28 and 60, and end up drafting Stanford TE Zach Ertz. Although he is not a WR I think he is the physical type of guy that the Steelers need to out fight defenders for the ball. He is a big target in the red zone and he can also go deep down the middle.

This will allow us to pick up another quality offensive lineman and safety in training or inside backer with our 2 2nd round picks.

01-15-2013, 06:53 PM
Okafor probably wouldn't be my pick. I believe the Steelers will love him though. He is a first round talent, not a second.

He's Woodley 2.0. They already have 1.0. He's not going in the first by the way, he's limited athletically in the same ways that Woodley is limited.

Just a Q---Why the heck do some of you want a O-L or NT in the first round? You don't see McClendon stepping in and doing a solid job for us? Plus NT is hit or miss and if they do pan out it takes a few years of develpment. Oline is not something we draft in the first round for a reason..(except last year) and look how that panned out--We got DeCastro (lost the Bengals game for us by himself) intstead of Hightower.
I just see such a need at ILB, OLB, S, RB. Id wait till at least 2-4 for RB though.
You can find nice off lineman late. Thoughts?

Ok folks,
Many names are out there who we might draft in the first but for the fun of it, pick your guy and give the reason for your selection. As the draft is concluded in round one we can look back on this thread and see who was right either by the draft pick or position.

Supers Selection:

I realize there are other positions we need beside NT, but if we can get the second best NT or possibly the best NT that position might be BPA. The BPA of OLB's, ILB, LT, and G will probably be gone before we pick. WR,TE,RB are positions I think we pick later in the draft and still might find a good one and value to our team.


My Selection:

Jessie Williams or Johnathan Jenkins

Now I know you guys have other names or positions in mind and may not like my pick, thats ok, let me know yours and we can get back here in April and see who got it right.

Now I get what a 3-4 NT does and how he opens things up for others but if you draft Jesse Williams ya better know he's not going to make many plays. For a guy who dominates the LOS I'd like to get a little more than 2.5 tackles for loss. Even if he is primarily a gap plugger.

36 tackles, including 2.5 tackles for loss and one sack this year for Alabama.

He did what Saban asked him to do. Against Georgia and Notre Dame he was dominant even while injured. He can play Nose or End in the 3-4.

He's very similar to Haloti Ngata to me. Ngata has never had more than 50 tackles in a year. Williams is a playa with the same type of strength Ngata displays.

The only reason i would not go NT in Rd 1 is because if you need a NT to occupy 2 blockers get that player in Rd 3 - Rd 4 . Why waste a Rd 1 pick on that. Steelers already have invested two Rd 1 picks on D-Linemen.. Cam heyward and Ziggy Hood to occupy blockers.

Cam heyward a first Rd pick might not see field even in his 3rd year.

Steelers need WR or a RB in Rd 1. A player who could make an impact. I would not mind a ball-hawk safety either. Enough of LBers in Rd 1. Get Woodley in shape and see what Sly or Spence have at ILB. And replace Harrison with Worilds. There are no position open at LB and one does not draft a Rd 1 LBer for depth.

Now I like Jesse Williams but come on Rob. He isnt what Hiloti Ngata is. That is not a very good comparison.

I'm not saying he will be as good, but I see him having a lot of upside. Both of them have big rugby backgrounds and both are immensely strong. Williams is going to destroy the bench press at the combine and he has pretty long arms.
