Steelers 2015 Draft???....Go Freak! As in....
1-Bernardrick McKinney MLB Mississippi State 6 ft 5 250 4.5 40 yard dash
He will get swallowed up by NFL o-lineman. No thanks... and we can't wait 3 years for him to develop. Te'o has the prototypical size of a linebacker that could start today.
1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 64 323
2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 511 189
3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 66 240-Jarvis Jones replacement
4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 64 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 67 322-raw talent with ton of upside
7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 510 210
7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5 10 185-need WR depth and returner
I'm also impressed with Kevin Minter. He's prototypical 3-4 ILB. Based on the videos I've been watching, he has some of the best read-and-react skills I've seen for an ILB in this draft. He shows good vision for the inside and the ability to work his way through the trash on the inside which is what Timmons had so much trouble with in years past.
as for Rambo, he and Alex Ogletree were suspended for the first 4 games of this past season for marijuana use. I realize we drafted Mike Adams even though he was also a known pot smoker but after what happened with Ta'amu and Rainey this past season I believe both Rambo and Ogletree will be off our draft board.
I think its going to be either NT or S or WR or TE.
This draft is loaded with O-linemen. They can get a good OG/OT in Rd 2- Rd 3.
Steelers Draft 2015
Rd 1: Devante Parker - WR/ Kevin Johnson - CB
Rd 2: Danielle Hunter -OLB
Rd 3: Steven Nelson - CB
Rd 4: Derron Smith - S
Rd 5: Henry Anderson - DE
Rd 6: Wes Saxton - TE
Rd 7: Deon Simon - DT
I think we go LB in the 1st either inside or outside. I think players like Ansah, Jordan, Te'o, Ogletree, Mingo, they are all in play for the Steelers and whoever Colbert and Tomlin like the best will be where they go. In rounds 2 and 3, I think the Steelers will find playmakers for #7 in the backfield and outside (Eddie Lacy and Robert Woods), those picks would make me happy. Add depth in the secondary and on the offensive line the rest of the way. This team is sorely lacking in quality depth, that's why injuries hurt so bad last season. The next man up wasn't good enough. The team also needs to find a young QB in my opinion to develop with Batch hanging onto a roster spot for one more season. Change is a coming folks, we'll see if Tomlin can develop talent now and if Colbert can continue to find it.
