    Anyone Ready for a Steelers Mock Draft?

    Could we have a top 10 draft pick? We'll need a little help, but I think #10 is the highest we could possibly get.

    Worst case, we're picking #19.

    The sad part is, does it really matter? Will we get any player who's worth drafting this high?

    More importantly, picking close to 10 might help in rounds 2-4 more than round 1 imho. But the way Tomlin/Colbert draft, does it even matter?

    Given the current state of the team, I have no idea what direction we'll go in the draft? Who will the best player available be?

    That is a remarkably cogent and comprehensive mock draft whose foundational premises address the Steelers multitudinous deficiencies while providing substantive depth at several essential positions.

    Aside from New England no other team that habitually picks as late as we do does any better with their draft picks. Its not a Tomlin/Colbert issue, it is how the NFL designs the talent distribution to work. We may have made it worse by keeping some players too long but it isn't the drafting.
    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!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB
    7a. Aaron Colvin, CB
    7b. Storm Johnson, RB

    The 2013 draft may be the earliest we pick in some time. We could use help in various positions, for me we need a NT to replace Casey Hampton. One who has power and can move blockers, Johnathan Jenkins, DT may fit that bill @ 6-3 358 lbs from Georgia. The Steelers could possibly let Mclendon compete against Hood,Heyward and Keisel if he's still here for the DE position.

    OG is another position they could look at, at any rate most games are won on the line of scrimmage and we need players there that can dominate. I would be happy with either position being upgraded, but I would prefer NT especially one who has the power to move people even when double teamed.

    Unless that guy is Haloti Ngata--no thanks. We need playmakers on our defense, pure and simple. There is a reason that we've ranked at the bottom of the league in takeaways (despite our lofty defensive rankings). We are too slow on defense.

    Our other weakness will be continued offensive line help.

    Agreed!! And Jenkins is no where near Haloti Ngata.

    Lets also keep in mind that the Steelers ranking for their defense is also based on having played one of the worst opponents win-loss percentages in the league.

    I can't think of a worse draft. DL and OG? What the frick have they been doing the last 4 years? We have to make due with what we got at DL and OG for now. DeCastro will work out fine and the left over parts will make us OK at OG, without us needing to use a high pick, any how.

    They got to go with DB, LB and RB and TE and WR. DL and OG are not nearly as high on the priority list.
