    The "Experts" have the Steelers picking:

    Here’s a list of the players 20 different mock drafts have the Steelers taking. The majority think they are going D with 10 picks and only 5 on O. The players on the most drafts were Donte Hightower (props to Dee Dub for the early mention) with 5 drafts followed by Dontari Poe listed on 4 drafts. Cordy Glenn was listed twice. The other 9 had different players. Heights and weights are from the drafts or a quick Google (I know they can vary depending on site).

    Hopefully gives you some names to check out:

    D:
    Donte Hightower – MLB – 6’4”/258 – Bama (5 drafts)
    Dontari Poe – NT – 6’5”/350 – Memphis (4 drafts - Kiper had Poe)
    Vontaze Burfic – MLB – 6’3”/250 – Az St
    Keeston Randle – DL -6’5”/295 – Tx
    Brandon Thompson – DL – 6’2”/310 – Clemson
    Chase Minifield – CB – 6’/188 – VA
    Alemeda Ta’Amu – DL – 6’3”/335 – Wash
    Janoris Jenkins – CB – 5’10”/185 – N. Alabama (played at UF for a few seasons)

    O:
    Cordy Glenn – OG – 6’4”/331 – Georgia (saw him listed as big as 6'5"/340's)
    Kelechi Osemele – OG – 6’5”/347 – Iowa St
    Coby Fleener – TE – 6’6”/240 – Stanford
    Michael Floyd – WR – 6’/229 - ND

    Kheeston Randall is from Texas, not Nebraska (plus he has a 3rd or 4th round grade, not a 1st).

    The CB from UVa is Chase Minnifield (former Browns CB Frank Minnifield's kid).

    Janoris Jenkins has too much of an off-the-field rap sheet for us to even consider him.

    A first round TE for us? Wow...

    Re: The "Experts" have the Steelers picking:

    Fixed those mistakes. Thanks.

    The "logic" behind the TE pick was the Steelers have watched what NE did with their TE's and realize what a weapon he could be along with an aging Miller. That's what it said (and why I put experts in quotes).

    Don't see them taking another small WR in round 1 either.

    I think Weslye Saunders could be a weapon alongside Heath if used correctly.

    I'd like to see what Saunders can do now, after playing a full season and having a full offseason...

    The fact that he even made the team after a year off from organized football and no offseason is pretty remarkable...

    And now that Arians has retired, we'll see how a new O.C. plans to utilize the talents of Heath and Weslye.

    Cordy Glenn is the right pick in Round 1 with Alemda Ta'amu in Round 2.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    With a new OC coming in, that 1st round pick may be more likely to be on that side of the ball to get the new coach someone he can call 'his guy'.

    I would be thrilled with Glenn..but I dont think he will be there at 24 and I know for a fact Ta'amu wont be there at 56.

    Ovi I dont think you are being realistic.

    Wow. Chase is Frank Minnifield son. I didn't know that. He was a great DB back in the browns brief 80's heyday... I mean the guy was really good. If Chase plays anything like his dad, I'd have to give this kid a good look..
