    I may have been too low on Valles. That said, he is much more of an athlete at this point and is incredibly raw. It was tough for me to use a selection on a guy who is unlikely to make the 53. To...

    I'm really hoping that it is not Eli Harold. I'd be fine with him in the second but don't like him in the first at all.

    I thought about doubling up on OLBs, but as T.O. pointed out, the roster math isn't great. I would add a guy like Dantzier or Valles (or both) as UDFAs to compete with Lemon, HoJo and the rest.

    That is my thought on Johnson as well. Seems like he could start but I doubt he ends up being more than an average starter.

    I'm fine with McBride in the third. The Steelers could use a 4th WR...

    Philly's Mock

    I love the draft but rarely sit down and do a mock. Here is my stab at this year:

    1. Randy Gregory / Shane Ray, OLB - hopefully one of these guys falls and the Steelers pull the trigger. I like...

    I'd be quite pleased with that draft. The only guy I don't like is Emmanuel. I think he'll end up as a special teams guy but I'm not sure that I see him as an OLB.

    There is some risk with both...

    I'm not feeling Kevin Johnson. I'd rather take a shot on Dupree, who is admittedly a boom or bust guy, than take Kevin Johnson, who still has bust potential but with a lower ceiling.

    When AB took the $8.5 million signing bonus after three starts, he and his agent knew full well that the back end of the contract wasn't guaranteed. They knew that the Steelers could cut him at any...

    The list of draft visitors this year seems odd. I certainly understand all of the interest in corners and outside linebackers. But what's with all of the first round WRs? And why only one...

    For all intents and purposes, he has $14.25 million guaranteed. The Steelers are obviously not going to cut him this year. So he's going to get that $6 million. And even if he has a...

    Brown could have chosen to play out his sixth round rookie deal and then tested free agency. He could have gambled on himself. Instead, he took what was a very nice payday. It's the tradeoff of...

    It certainly turned out that way. The point is, he wasn't given an Arthur Moats or Steve McClendon type of borderline starter contract. He was paid like a star despite having 3 starts under his...

    The Steelers can't go wrong addressing the secondary or the OLB position early in the draft. What surprising me when looking at the visit list is how much the Steelers have been looking into a lot...

    AB had 3 starts when the Steelers gave him a $8.5 million dollar signing bonus and a $42 million contract. A contract that many questioned at that time, thinking it was too high.

    Not sure if he can play center but he's probably better than Cam Thomas at defense end.

    Of the $42 million contract that he signed, Brown has roughly $23 million remaining in base salaries for 2015 - 2017. Which means that he made roughly $19 million since he signed the contract. It's...

    Beachum or Gilbert? Gilbert is under contract and, since he was just restructured, is not likely to be cut anytime soon. Beachum could leave, but he was pretty effective at LT.

    I don't like Johnson in the first. He's already 23. Coupled with the thin frame, I just don't like it. I'd rather grab a corner with some size and physicality.

    A draft of Diggy, one of the second round DBs (Rowe, Rollins, somebody like that) and then the rest of your mock would look pretty nice.

    I like it from round 3 on. Jones is way to boom or bust for me in the first round. If they are going to take a big risk on a corner, I'd prefer Collins or Peters in the first, and I have...

    Why does everything have to fit into an agenda?

    Gregory was seen by most as a top 10 player before the failed test. If he falls, you need to do your due diligence.
