    I love Jeffrey in Round 1 because of all the reasons cited plus I mostly love the pick because it gives us leverage and an option in the Mike Wallace contract negotiations. If Wallace wants crazy money you can trade him or let him walk if you have Jeffrey and still we would have a formidable WR group.

    I would seriously consider OG over NT in Round 2 but the draft is a great one.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner

    "Stole" is such a harsh word...can we go with "respectfully borrowed"?

    If a big-name guy like Jeffery (a big WR) slips like that, that's not a good indicator IMO. I would roughly compare it to a guy like Limas Sweed, who was also well-known as a collegiate. The scouts, who are paid to analyze things, ended up thinking he was not a first-round pick (when going into the year, he was touted as one), and his career bore that out. Same here with Jeffery.

    Alshon Jeffery, if he is the player that we would hope in getting him way down in the draft, should not be available for us. If he is, I would think it's for a reason.

    Another thing that struck me in your mock is that you think two OG's will be picked ahead of our pick? Wow. That's surprising.

    I love your Best Player Available thought... as I've said, if a BPA is there at WR, DE, hell SS... you take him. What we want is difference-makers. Picking for need is perilous territory, and can quickly turn your team mediocre.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    I follow college football with a passion. I look at these players very thouroughly. It is my opinion that there realy isnt any real comparisons between Alshon Jeffrey and Limas Sweed. Skill set wise none at all. And physically not much either. Yes they are both tall (6 ft 4), however, Jeffrey is much bigger weight wise. He is also the more physical receiver on the field as well. And as far as what each did production wise on the field, that isnt all that close either. Jeffrey was much more than Limas Sweed ever was.

    If Jeffery falls to 24 it doesnt have as much do to with him as it does more so with the inept Qb play at South Carolina this past season (in particular Stephen Garcia).

    Ruthless, btw, this would be a flat out great draft if the Steelers were able to simply get your first two picks. However, I do not think Ta'amu will ever make it to pick 56. My guess is he doesnt make it past pick 40. I do believe a more realistic NT that may be there for the Steelers (in round two), is Alabama's Josh Chapman. He as you know played in Nick Saban's 3-4. Also I think you have Levi Adcock too high. This is a player I think could be had in rounds 4 or 5. I like the 6th round pick of Gideon. He's not the most gifted but he is a solid football player who I think will be better over time in the NFL.
