Who would your 3rd round pick for the Steelers be given these options?

I went with the offensive threat. Rogers #1 with my #2 being Escobar.

I sure hope the Steelers don't draft two LBers in the first two rounds.

if Le'Veon Bell is still there when we select in Round 3 and we haven't picked a RB yet, it's a no-brainer.

Just like in round two, I went with Franklin :) I like Bell though too.

Le'Veon Bell would be my preference.

RB's are dime a dozen in today's NFL. Outside of AP, Ray Rice and MJD, which one is truly a difference maker? I don't care who's running the ball, if you get it blocked, you'll pick up the yards you need to do what the running game does now - create enough of a diversion to keep defenses honest in the passing game. People are panicked about the RB situation here, but if memory serves, Dwyer and Redman EACH had a game of 130+ yards last year... and Redman went well over 100 in the playoffs the year before. I'll use third day picks to add to the depth at the position, thanks. All of the above will contribute this year - Dwyer, Redman, and draft pick - and we'll be fine.

Ray Graham? Kerwynn Williams? Jawan Jamison? Mike Gillislee? I'm not buying that we can't get a serviceable player without spending a premium pick. Too many needs to waste a pick at RB here. I'll be upset if we do... find a faller on the lines or at safety - the strengths of this draft.
