    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
    What about Dion Jordan, major guy missing from your list. Or Buchanon from Illinois?

    I hope Big Hank stays for his senior season at OSU...I hope that the opportunity to compete for a bowl next year is a good enough reason to stay...

    That will decide a lot on what players on the list are even considered.
    Those elite DE's (Mingo, Montogomery, Jarvis Jones), that would allow for the Steelers to change to a 4-3, are top 5 picks and if not wont last past number 10. So...should just stay at 3-4 and try to get T'eo or Minter to fit next to Timmons.

    T'eo or Minter would be nice. I think this is a deep draft at ILB and Safety. We need both. Do we think Troy is back next year? Should he be?
    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!

    Good football players but as of right now I dont have them as first round grades. Mid-second rounders.

    I agree with your assessment, there's a lot of time between now and the draft but as of right now neither Jordan nor Buchanan are first-rounders.

    It will be interesting to see what happens to Bacarri Rambo. I think he is the best pure free safety in this draft. Even ahead of Eric Reid. Problem, is he has had some off field issues. Came up dirty for smoking weed. He had 13 picks in his first 3 years. I like Tony Jefferson the little guy from Oklahoma. He can be used all over the field.

    that would be great for us, I would love to see us draft a stud ILB and safety in the first two rounds.
