    Some of the mocks would only require a slight move to grab either. I still think DeCastro will be gone in the top 15 but I hope he slides.....

    I believe James or Pead will be a Steeler. They want a "change of pace" back.
    2017 Draft:
    1st Njoku TE
    2nd Willis OLB
    3a Maye S
    3b Witherspoon or Griffin CB
    4th McNichols RB
    5th Dobbs QB
    6th Evans ILB
    7th Jones OLB

    I would love to have a change of pace like James but he is just as unproven as the rest of them. I'm curious to see if Batch could be that guy. Is he healthy yet?

    I agree.

    Over the years, I've seen members of this site pick players in their mock that we could have taken. Surprisingly enough, I've seen hose players outperformed the players that the FO has chosen.

    I'm not saying these board members should be GMs but I'm not giving the Steelers coaches and FO a free pass just because they work for the organization and we don't. They make mistakes. They miss on contracts, evaluations and player rankings. I don't look through the Steelers glasses like some do... I'm not the type that says, "Well, if the Colbert and Tomlin think he's great, then he must be".

    Different opinions is what makes a forum fun. Some may call those people trolls, haters or whatever ... but it doesn't make them wrong just because they disagree w/ the general population.

    Yes, I think they will go for a back in the 2nd at first I was thinking Kendricks in the second, but makes more sense since there is alot of uncertainty there at RB for this year and next year ( Mendy and Redman FA)

    Last I heard he's almost finished with rehab and should be 100% for camp.

    Batch is good. Get an RB on the UFA market. We need other issues first. A good O line makes a C+ back look great.

    No offense, but zzzzz.
    They are not going to tell you , Ed B.,Lolley OR Anyone else who they have plans and what order they have plans for. So I take this along with the other reporter reports with a grain of salt. All are guesses at this point.
