    Not all 5 of those players I named will go in the top 7 picks. If the Steelers draft at 12 it wont necessarily require using this years second round pick. Cleveland and New Orleans do not have second round picks this year. So that moves the Steelers third round pick up at 2 spots. Moving from 12 to 8 would require this years 1st and 3rd round picks.

    Now you are drafting at 8 and 43. You should be able to get one great player and one really good player with that. If you walk away this off season filling two holes with one great player and another very good player, then you have had a very successful off season.

How about getting one or two big time blue-chippers?

    But Ovi, I bet you are a big fan of that show Hoarders, right?
    Those guys were all taken on day 3 of the draft...those picks aren't worth all that much. Even if we packaged all of our picks on the third day of the draft (round 4, 5, 6, and 7), we might be be able to move up 2 or possibly 3 spots in round one. If you really want to move up into top 10 territory, you have to sacrifice a valuable day two pick.

    Oh and who knows maybe you have a shot at this guy...

    OLB 3-4 defense 77 tackles, 12.5 sacks, 22.5 tackles for loss, 1 INT, and 7 FF's. And he missed two games.

    Yes, that is exactly what I am saying in my last post. See above. If we are drafting at 12 to move up to number 8 (1400), and possibly number 7th overall (1500), trade value points. That would be this years 1 and 3rd.

    Would anyone consider trading down this year for more picks? I know we don't get to pick this high often, but I'm not real ecstatic being in the middle of the draft. I'd rather be at the top or bottom. I either want a sure fire player or the guy that drops that everyone else forgets about.

    I know I always want to trade back. But perhaps this is the year it could have the most likelihood of happening.

    Got me wondering which players the Steelers nabbed that weren't expected to be there when they picked? A few come to mind:

    B. Roethlisberger
    R. Mendenhall
    H. Miller
    M. Pouncey?

    Really? I saw Jenkins fat ass repeatedly blown off the ball during the SEC Championship game by NFL talent. No thank you at pick 11.

    Give me Mingo or Dion Jordan or a really good LT.

    Would you be willing to do that, say if Jarvis Jones some how was there at 8? Or maybe Star Lotulelei?

    Or better yet, what players would you be willing to move up 4 to 5 spots for?
