    Re: STEELERS ARE ON THE CLOCK!

    Trade up with Tennessee to take Haden at 1.16.

    Give up:

    Our 1.18 pick is worth 900, 4.116 is worth 62, 5.155 is worth 29.4, and 6.188 is worth 16.2. That's 1007.6 points.

    The Titans 1.16 is worth 1000 points and 7.222 is worth 2.6 points. That's 1002.6 points.

    I'd be willing to sacrifice those 5 extra points if it would give us:

    1.16 Joe Haden, CB, Florida
    2.52
    3.82
    5.151
    5.164(c)
    5.166(c)
    7.222
    7.242(c)

    We get the top CB in the draft, both in terms of coverage ability as well as run support, keep both of our day two picks in a draft that is unusually strong in the second and third rounds, and still have 5 picks on day three (8 picks total).


    1.15 WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
    2.46 TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
    3.97c ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford
    4.118 CB Philip Gaines, Rice
    5.157 OT James Hurst, North Carolina
    5.173c RB Jerrick McKinnon, Georgia Southern
    6.192 CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
    6.215c DE Deandre Coleman, California
    7.230 NT Zack Kerr, Delaware

    I knew someone would be all over that trade. They could try to trade back in the 2nd to pick up a 4th if needed.
    1st (T-D) Kelvin Benjamin WR
    2nd Bradley Roby CB
    3a Jeremiah Attaochu OLB
    3b Kareem Martin DE
    4th Christian Jones ILB
    5a Dri Archer RB
    5b Beau Allen NT
    6a John Brown WR
    6b Shaquille Richardson CB
    7th Blake Annen TE

    Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is starting to look like the biggest and baddest CB in the draft. I think he's every bit as talented as Haden and his numbers jump off the chart.

    A.O.A. could be the next Ike Taylor (excellent athletic specimen from a small school to emerge as a top notch starting CB) or the next Ricardo Colclough (excellent athletic specimen from a small school to fall on his face when faced with the jump in competition from Division II to the NFL). I do like Owusu-Ansah (if he's available in the 3rd round, I'd be quite happy with that), but I don't think you can say he is every bit as talented as Haden at this point. Remember, A.O.A. faced WR's from Slippery Rock, Lock Haven, Clarion, and Kutztown, while Haden faced elite SEC WR's such as Julio Jones (Alabama), A.J. Green (Georgia), Brandon LaFell (LSU), etc. That's a HUGE difference.

    Re: STEELERS ARE ON THE CLOCK!

    Graham would be way too much value to pass on.

    Wilson had some off the field issues...count him out.

    Then I would say Pouncey, then Odrick and Iupati.
