    The REAL Final, Chadman Mock Draft..

    Ok, ok...this is REALLY the last one...

    ROUND 1.

    MIKE ADAMS OT
    OHIO ST

    Steelers need a genuine LT. Played in a big college, competed against good competition. It's the Offense's turn in the Round 1 game after Cam Heyward was picked last season.

    ROUND 2

    JOSH CHAPMAN NT
    ALABAMA

    Steelers need a NT to learn from & then replace Casey Hampton. Outside of injury, there are really no question marks on Chapman.

    ROUND 3

    ROBERT TURBIN RB
    UTAH ST

    Mendy is in his last season, Redman is not a gaurentee to be a success & there is nothing proven outside of those guys. Good hands, fits Todd Haley's offense.

    ROUND 4

    SEAN SPENCE LB
    MIAMI

    Steelers are always looking for LB's. Spence plays surprisingly physically for a smaller guy- but if the Steelers looked at Kendricks there is no reason to think Spence wasn't seen too. Steelers had a number of Coaches at Miami's Pro Day.

    ROUND 5

    KEITH TANDY CB/FS
    WEST VIRGINIA

    Steelers have shown a lot of interest- they need a Safety for depth.

    ROUND 6

    RYAN VAN BERGEN DE
    MICHIGAN

    Steelers need DL depth- Van Bergen is the prototype 3-4 DE.

    ROUND 7

    A) TONEY CLEMONS WR
    COLORADO

    B) KELVIN BEACHUM OG
    SMU

    C) BRODERICK BINNS OLB
    IOWA

    D) BUDDY JACKSON CB
    PITTSBURGH

    Mike Adams might be there in round 2. He's probably off their boards because of that mary jane situation.. FO would say no-way.. Also, they have their long-term LT now.

    At this point, I would be very surprised if it was Mike.

    I like your draft after the first two picks. Adams and Chapman in rounds 1 & 2 may require me to buy a new tv.

    I would be extremely didsappointed if they selected Adams given his underachiever performance in college and his history of making bad decisions with the off field nbenefits and now dope. Just doesn't seem like a guy you can count on. After the Stupidio Holmes experience why would they want to have a similar porblem. I still like OL in Round 1 and would go with Kevin Zeitler and get a 10-year starter with high character.

    I really like the Chapman pick, but would have to be prepared to have him no better than 80% this season. That may be asking alot given that Hampton is in the same situation.

    I'd probably add another OL about Round 4 like Lucas Nix from Pitt.
    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!

    I agree with the others. Adams in the first round would disgust me. Even before the weed revelation, I did not want him. Most Ohio State fans that I've talked with, and I live in Buckeye Land, don't think he gave consistent effort. Also, remember he was part of the "Tattoo Scandal" at OSU. My attempt at a mock is in my sig below.

    Thing is- you just don't get a lot of opportunities to draft an 'elite' LT when you are the Pittsburgh Steelers, drafting at the tail end of the draft every year. Adams fits so many catagories as a LT, and actually upgrades 3 OL positions as Chadman feels he's a superior LT to Gilbert, Gilbert is a superior RT to Colon & Colon is a superior RG to Foster. The flow-on effect is enormous. Many here want an OG, but that simply fixes 1 position. Chadman isn't convinced the OT's are better than 'ok' if they play the positions we currently have them tagged at.

    After Adams, who is the next best LT? The drop-off from Adams to the next LT is huge. If the Steelers draft Adams, you can be sure that the team has done it's 'due diligence' in regard to his character. Has he been dumb?

    Yes.

    But if the coaches think they can develop him, if they feel he can keep his head on straight- the upside there is huge. Potentially- Adams is the #2 LT on the Draft board behind Kalil.

    Chadman's logic makes perfect sense... and if Matt Kalil, or a Matt Kalil type somehow fell in our lap, I'd be right with you. My issue is with the guy, Mike Adams himself. A guy with his "tools" should flat-out dominate, like Kalil did. Like Jon Ogden. Like Tony Boselli. Adams played in a highly competitive environment. Ohio St always had a BIG game coming up, where your skills would be put to the test. Great players respond, and dominate. He didn't do that.

    Being a long-time draft nerd, I'm big on comparing. Comparing prospects to former prospects. In Adams' case, I think of Winston Justice from SC a few years back. Even farther back, I compared him to Trezelle Jenkins from Michigan. Both those guys were "supreme talents" from major programs, who were drafted in the late 1st because others felt the same way Chadman does ("when will we ever get a chance to pick an elite LT"). The problem is/was: These guys are fool's gold. I have much less of a problem drafting a guy like Jamain Stephens from Nowhere, because then you could somehow justify his college production. In a case like Adams, it's hard (to justify).

    The tattoo "scandal" was BS and not a good reason for any player at any program to be suspended five games...

    The marijuana? Flat out stupid...

    The tattoos? BS...
