    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    Yeah it's an odd year. More than likely has to do with the lockout and the Steelers not being able to fill some needs via Free Agency (signing their own really). Every year we typically go with BPA, but I'm thinking Colbert/Tomlin are staying quiet here due to the want to fill a need.

    Which is why I think Bouchette is predicting Aaron Williams soley based on mock drafts and not what he's actually hearing this time around.

    Interesting that Marcus Gilbert, Curtis Brown, and Cortez Allen all visited the South Side HQ prior to the draft. Plus Colbert, Tomlin, and LeBeau went to Columbus to check out Cam Heyward. Not too much smokescreenery this year...

    According to Baron Batch, he was in for a visit. I will add him to the rumor list since we never received and official from the team.
