    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Gotta go with highest rated on your board. I am not reaching on a player (Mike Adams), just because it fills a need.

    I would go with Stephone Gilmore or Alshon Jeffrey. Still and Worthy may be higher rated however, I see them playing in a 3-4 at a position where the Steelers already are covered. I do not see Jerel Worthy as a NT in a 3-4.
    Steelers 2015 Draft???....Go Strong! As in....

    I will play on my board.

    If it unfolds this way...First choice would be to trade out of the spot. My target would be Lamar Miller.

    If I have to pick at that spot, it comes down to Perry or Hill. Now that would be difficult. They are both "potential" picks. Hard to pass up a pass rusher...Although Hill would contribute more year one. Being that the team struggled last year to pressure the QB when Harrison or Woodley was out...I would have to go with Perry.


    In case you didn't notice...Don't like Adams or Worthy at #24.

    Gilmore and Jeffrey are the two names on that list which stood out to me as well.

    I also would not go Adams or Worthy.

    I would select Peter Konz and have him pay Guard initially but get a player with the flexibility to step in at Center if Pouncey continues to lose time due to leg injuries. Konz is the highest rated player at his position left on the board and fills a position of need. I think if you can get the best player at his position in the draft at #24 then you seriously consider that.

    If I view this purely as a luxury pick then I look at Coby Fleenor (Best TE in draft) or Stephen Hill.
    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!

    Perhaps. Many draft gurus have him going between 20 and 35. Still, even if you are correct, no reason for the attitude.
