Everyone wants more from the offense so here is a draft that gives us more

Round 1: Tyler Eifert, TE, 65 250lbs, Notre Dame (also strongly would consider John Cooper, OG)
Round 2: Johnathan Franklin, RB, 510 205lbs, UCLA
Round 3: DJ Swearinger, S, 511 210 lbs. South Carolina
Round 4: Jonathan Bostic, ILB, 6 1 245lbs, Florida
Round 5: Zac Dysert, QB, 6 3, 231lbs, Miami (OH)
Round 6: Aaron Mellete, WR, 63 216lbs, Elon
Round 7: Rontez Miles, S, 511, 203lbs, Cal (Pa)

Swearinger, Bostic, and Miles are all wasted picks. LeBeau will never play them. :p

Which is why none are a Round 1 pick or of immediate need for 2013 until they serve their mandatory hazing period. It's also why there are 4 Off players and 3 Defense players. We will actually get value from 4/7th of the 2013 draft in 2013.

Although I'm not on the Eifert at 17 bandwagon, I actually like all of the guys that you picked here, so I would be satisfied with a draft like that, even if it were not my top choice.

Tha nks and likewise I would be just as happy with the draft in your sig. You know I'm all about attacking the QB and if Jones can do it I'm his biggest fan.

I just think Jones has red flags all over the place and I think that Worilds will be much better than many give him credit for.

Plus Jones won't be allowed to play until he learns all 15 variations of the third secondary blitz on third and long. Even though LeBeau rarely calls that.

Eifert has grown on me. Especially if it means not taking Jarvis Jones. I like the Dysert pick in Round 5 too

I am not super fond of Franklin in the second. From what I've seen of him, I wouldn't pick him before the 4th round. I have read that he played much of the season at under 200 pounds. Those types of backs rarely make it in this league unless they are truly elite athletes. I don't see that either. He is smart and has a great attitude to go along with good skills. But, for me, that is a middle round guy.

I know he is the darling of a lot of draft analysts, but I am missing what they are swooning over.

I'd be good with Eifert, Bostic, Dysert, and Melette. I prefer J. J. Wilcox to Swearinger, but wouldn't hate the pick.

Not bad, Ovi.

So far I like Ruthless' mock the best.

Ovi, for as much as we disagree, I generally like your first 5 picks (and I don't know enough about the last two to saying anything one way or another). Like Ruthless, I'm also not on the Eifert at 17 bandwagon, but I could live with the pick.

I would like to see a developmental OLB somewhere in there. I'm not sold on Carter, not sure about Robinson, and believe that the Steelers still need to improve their depth, especially with Worilds and Woodley having such significant injury histories.

I think Franklin really fits what Haley does sort of a Jamal Charles (-)

I agree....might not be my preferred picks but I like 1 thru 4. I'm not very familiar with the rest.

I am not a fan of TE at #17 but i wont throw anything at TV if Eifert is the pick at 17...
:)

I prefer some like Christine Michael over Franklin....I like rest of the picks..

Pretty good draft Ovi

Franklin seems more like the run and catch RB that fits what Haley does more than Michael.

Another guy to watch late is Latavius Murray out of Central Florida. I think Ruthless put him on another thread. He runs with power and catches the ball pretty well. I watched him dominate some games this year. Saw somewhere where the Cowboys liked him alot after his Pro Day.

I like your draft. Surprised you went with the kid from Elon. I was just on their campus last weekend. I see them play on ocassion but didn't even consider someone of their roster could get drafted.

The one that's in his signature. The problem is... I don't know if Hopkins (2nd), Thomas (3rd), Lattimore (4th) will still be available when we pick. Especially Hopkins, I think he'll go in the 1st.

That is a remarkably cogent and comprehensive mock draft whose foundational premises address the Steelers multitudinous deficiencies while providing substantive depth at several essential positions.

Yeah, I like Franklin a lot, but I think that is a round too early. Stepfan Taylor is another West Coast guy who will make some hay, pretty quickly, IMO.
