    This upcoming draft is loaded!!

    If the Steelers choose to go defense in round one there are a ton of freakishly athletic, dominate defensive players that are going to be available. I think this is going to be one of the best drafts for defensive football players in a long time. And as a result there is going to be major quality in rounds 2 and 3 as well.

    Johnathan Hankins DT Ohio State
    Star Lotulelei DT Utah
    Jarvis Jones LB Georgia
    Barkevious Mingo DE LSU
    Bjoern Werner DE Florida State
    Manti Te'o LB Notre Dame
    Sam Montgmomery DE LSU
    Alec Ogletree LB Georgia
    Johnathan Banks CB Mississippi State
    Dee Milliner CB Alabama
    Jackson Jeffcoat DE Texas
    Eric Reid FS LSU
    Alex Okafor DE Texas
    Kawann Short DT Purdue
    John Jenkins DT Georgia
    Xavier Rhodes CB Florida State
    T.J. McDonald FS Southern California
    Kenny Vaccaro FS Texas
    Kevin Minter LB LSU

    I like that you have Hankins listed first...guy is a game changer. I watch him collapse pockets double teamed. I think he is a junior though. If I'm right he might not come out this season.

    If we draft right our D can be set for the future. There are some game changers available early on. This might be the year we move up in the 1st to get that special player.
    We could still go BPA and get some good players

    Yes Hankins is but personally for the Steelers I would prefer Star Lotulelei over him. There are a lot of juniors on this list but I gotta believe most of them will turn pro. Of these Juniors I think they are all ready for the NFL.

    FS and LB and preferably form the SEC.

    I would like to see the Steelers load up on defense early this year, but I think they have to retain Wallace in order to do that. Wallace-Brown-Sanders-Cotchery is a formidable set of weapons. Brown-Sanders-Cotchery-? is much less scary.

    I would like to see a dynamic player in the secondary (don't really care what position) and a dynamic linebacker added to the fold. A DE could also help.

    I would like to see this thread anchored... I love college ball but its a little early for draft talk. I'm sure we will see more draft prospects shooting up or falling off with 3 months of college ball left.

    This is "Steeler Draft Talk"...and that is a topic that can be discussed year round. Sorry for putting the gun to your head and forcing you to read it.

    Will we be drafting for a 3-4 defense or a 4-3 defense

    That will decide a lot on what players on the list are even considered.
    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!
