Dee Dub's first 2013 Steelers draft!!
Why not? Do it every year. But this year I really hope I am wrong. It will take drafting in the 10-15 range to get these guys. I hope they actually draft at 32.
I'll start with just 4 rounds. And it's all defense. And an emphasis on play makers.
1--Manti T'eo ILB Notre Dame--freak athletically. Can play in a 3-4 or a 4-3. And he can cover as well as play downhill.
2--Tony Jefferson FS---Oklahoma on the smallish size but he is not far off of Tyrann Mathieu in what he does all over the field..
3--Damontre Moore OLB--Texas A&M--playing in a 4-3 this year but the past two years was an OLB in their 3-4.
4--Desmond Trufant--CB Washington---last time the Steelers drafted a CB who started all 4 years in college was Deshea Townsend and Trufant, who has two brothers in the NFL, could be a Deshea Townsend type.
and a few other names I like...
OLB Chase Thomas Stanford--playing OLB in Stanford's 3-4
ILB's C.J. Mosley and Nico Johnson ILB Alabama (3-4 defense)
