    GBNREPORT's Mock draft has the Steelers taking...

    17 Pittsburgh
    Jesse Williams
    NT Alabama

    Chadman would be happy no doubt. And if it would go down like this it would fill our quota for an Australian. So now we dont have to draft Brad Wing.

    But seriously, if it were to go done like this in the first round, I'd love to trade down and get another second round pick. This means there would be two great WR's still on the board late first early second, Terrence Williams and DeAndre Hopkins. And I think these two may be the two best receivers in this draft., If any thing, they are blue chippers. And it solves the Mike Wallace situation.


    One of these

    Terrence Williams/DeAndre Hopkins

    With maybe two of these

    Kevin Minter/Eric Reid/T.J. McDonald/Bacarri Rambo/Tony Jefferson/Kenny Vacarro/Margus Hunt/Desmond Trufant/Chase Thomas/etc.

    To me would be better than just drafting Jesse Williams

    Jonathan Banks is a solid CB. Long with great wing span. Has had a nose for the ball too. But for the 17th pick I think we could do more/better. Do you mean Tyler Lewan OT of Michigan? He's rated pretty high. Versus South Carolina's all-world Jadeveon Clowney in their bowl game there were times when he held his own, but there was also time when he looked flat out over-matched. But Clowney maybe the best D-lineman to come around since like Joe Greene.

    yeah, that's him. My bad.

    I didn't see many michigan games but know he is rated pretty high. I saw him get beat up but clowney in the bowl game, but who didn't. The only guy I saw handle clowney all season was tiny richardson from tennessee. But then clowney beat him on the last series and caused a game winning fumble.

    I am always told that the Steelers simply take the best player that they rate on the board in the 1st 2 rounds. Which site or individual would you recommend I follow for draft evaluation vs teams needs?

    The fact we are seemingly holding open auditions likely indicates we don't have an answer to the NT position. It is a risk of the 3-4 and so many other teams looking for the same NT we are.
    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!

    I think the guys at ESPN Insider do as good a job as anyone out there. If you don't mind spending money and want some really good stuff I would recommend Ourlad's Scouting Services as well as The Drugstore List, Hughes Draft Omnibus, GM Jr., and Draft Insiders Digest. Most of these are either from Ex-NFL scouts or have them on their payroll.

    He was an undrafted free agent who spent the season on the Seahawks practice squad...the fact that he finished the year on an active roster for 2 games (1 for Seattle, 1 for us) makes him not a bust with that pedigree...
