    I tend to agree... but you have to take the coach and program as a whole into consideration. When is the last time a Oklahoma team played well when it mattered the most? The HC is suspect in big games. I'd take him as a back up in a heartbeat but Ben is the wild card. Like someone just said.. Ben would really have a fit if we drafted his replacement this year.

    Sacks and Big 12 don't go together. I don't think I've seen more than 4 sacks in any Big 12 game the last 5 years. LOL...

    All kidding aside, I would love to have a QB like Landry Jones in the wings but Ben wouldn't appreciate it and I doubt he is on the board that late...

    I disagree 100% with Te'o... I think you have blinders on with this kid. He has some serious flaws in his game IMO.

    Probably. And that is why I took him off my draft. Still would love to have him though.

    And that is why the Steelers would get him in the 3rd round.

    I like the top of this draft. I'd be very happy with it. Nice job.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Thanks steelblood. I know it isn't going to happen but this one is all in fun. I'll do another after combine and free agency.

    I want to see an update yours.

    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.

    1-Manti Te'o ILB Notre Dame----What you think he can't do, or lacks, wont be an issue in LeBeau's 3-4 playing next to Timmons and what he does well will be hi-lighted
    2-Terrance Williams WR Baylor---6 ft 2 WR who exploded with out having RG3 throwing him the ball--Mike Wallace's replacement
    3-Landry Jones QB Oklahoma----He sits behind Ben for 3 years, the length of Ben's contract, then takes a over like Aaron Rodgers--hopefully
    4-Joe Kruger DT Utah-----------Solid 5 Technique 3-4 DT
    5-Joseph Fauria TE UCLA--------He played in a run oriented offense yet still had 11 TD's. 6 ft 7 255. Big target with good hands.
    6-Kerwynn Williams RB/KR Utah State-replacement for Rainey. Speedy running back/kick returner who also has lined up as the slot as well.
    7-Jeff Baca OG UCLA
    Cleveland spelled backwards is DNA Level C

    This is a deep safety class, the Steelers will come out of it having picked on in the first three rounds. Bank on It.

    Polamalu and Clark are in the last one or two years of their career. The only replacement we have on the roster is Golden. They'll take a guy in the first three rounds to prepare them to start in 2014.

    I'm Partial to DJ Swearinger (2nd Rd) or Philip Thomas (3rd Rd).
