1. Stephen Hill - WR - GA Tech - A 6'4", 215lb WR that fixes our #1 problem. Red Zone production. He's a junior which Tomlin should like. Kid's a freak. He's the real deal. Might have more potential than any WR in this class. Don't need him, but he'll be a steal at 24.
2. Josh Chapman - NT - Alabama - He has Casey Hampton II written all over him. If he wasn't hurt, he'd be a sure first rounder. This kid is a stud that will change our Defense for years.
3. Brandon Brooks - OG - Miami OH - Small school beast with athleticism, size, and positional flexibility that we seem to covet.
4. Bruce Irvin - OLB - WVU - Just trying to fit in a local college kid. This kid seems like a freak that shouldn't last this long. But who knows? He's got some character issues and could slide a bit.
5. Chris Rainey -RB - Florida - He's little. He's quick. He's explosive. Good 3rd down weapon and a change of pace back.
6. Chris Greenwood - CB - Albion - Great D-III athlete that has the prototypical size/speed/athleticism to fit in the Steelers' D.
7. Neiko Thorpe - FS - Auburn - Good athlete with good size and production in the SEC.
7. Donald Stephenson - OT/OG - Oklahoma - Big athletic kid with positional flexibility.
7. Patrick Witt - QB - Yale - The kid's as good a QB prospect as any of the QBs outside of the top QBs. He's smart, got good size, and a decent arm. Could be a good eventual backup for us.
7. Noah Keller - ILB - OH - Nice athlete with good production on the field. A little small. Will he hold up against top competition? Seems like a good risk for a 7th round pick. Plus we're in a passing league now, so do we really need the big thumpers in the middle?
Some additional commentary, I wouldn't be surprised with Janoris Jenkins or Coby Fleener. Just 2 guys I had a suspicion about very early on. I know Jenkins has character issues, but without them, he's as good a CB as I've seen in college. Fleener seems like such a good fit to cure our RedZone issues. He looks like the next Heath Miller out there. But at the end of the day, I have to look at the reality of the Mike Wallace situation and think Hill could make a ton of sense.
