    But I wouldn't got chasing him very high up the draft board.
    I would not trade up for Poe or Hightower. If they fall...Make the choice.
    I trade up for DeCastro and DeCastro only. Otherwise, I wait to see which of these remaining guys happen to fall into our laps at #24.
    I'd go up a couple of places for Glenn too.

    I have a feeling that he is going to end up like Branden Albert and come off the board before he is anywhere close to the Steelers pick, but if he can be had by moving up a few slots, absolutely, get it done.

    What's the most you'd be willing to give up to get DeCastro?

    What's the most you'd be willing to give up to get Glenn?

    We've all been talking about Hightower, but what if Kuechly fell within range...what would you be willing to give up to get him?

    For what it's worth...
    Using our 2nd round pick moves us up 9-10 slots in the first round.
    Using our 3rd round pick moves us up about 6 slots in the first round.
    Using our 4th round pick moves us up about 3 slots in the first round.

    I wouldn't hesitate to give up either the 3rd or 4th. I would think real hard about losing the 2nd.

    To borrow a phrase, most Eagles fans have a massive brilliance at the thought of Keuchly. Giving up the second and moving to 14 puts us one spot ahead of the Eagles. Just for kicks and giggles, I'd probably give up the second to get Kuechly.

    In all seriousness, I'd certainly give up the 3rd or 4th to grab an elite offensive lineman. Being at 24 puts the Steelers just out of range of getting a top guy on the offensive line, but if somebody slips a bit, they are within striking distance.

    I'm not as keen on moving up to grab an ILB.

    I wouldn't move up to get an ILB but what about moving a few places and getting OLB Courtney Upshaw as the eventual Harrison replacement and consider moving Harrison inside. Upshaw on our defense would be something special.

    I thought he looked far better than Hightower in the national championship game. I didn't watch them all year but on the big stage Upshaw looked more dominant IMO.
