    That's a solid draft there Todd, my only exception would be running back. I like the kid from Michigan State Le'veon Bell @ number four.

    I'm with you on Jones. If he falls, that's a no brainer pick (and I'm seeing more and more mocks with him falling, because he's undersized for a 4-3 DE, and people worry about USC telling him he should quit football once upon a time). Dude's got a non-stop motor on the field, and our defense can certainly use a young relentless playmaker out there.

    My next 3 picks were at the same positions as you, but I took different guys. Baylor's Williams as our 2nd round wideout instead of Tennessee's Hunter, Oklahoma's Jefferson as our 3rd round safety instead of USC's McDonald, and taking a chance on South Carolina's Lattimore as our 4th round running back instead of Florida's Gillislee.

    Strangely enough, I also have us taking a guard, tight end, and quarterback on day three, but again, my 3 are different (Cornell's Tretter, Alabama's Williams, and Vanderbilt's Rodgers, respectively). The only position that you took that I didn't was an ILB (I took a CB instead, Webb from William & Mary).

    Overall...it seems like we are on a very similar wavelength. Nice mock...

    Jones's medical would make me pass on him even if he was there. To be honest, a player with his production that doesn't come off the board at the latest in the Top 10 means there are major concerns. So if he slides all the way to #17...Let him keep sliding.

    I hear you, but this is just a pre-combine mock. Perhaps they'll know more about his situation after the combine?

    I love the Jones and TJ McDonald picks...Jones has non-stop motor..He can rush the QB for sure which Steelers currently lack

    Is Justin Hunter completely fit??? I think he blew his knee in 2011 and has not been upto the mark since return...His 40 time at the combine will be interesting...Right now i will take Da'Rick over Hunter.

    I don't know much about the rest of the picks...but i like the position addressed in this draft..

    I'm sure the Jones medical probe will be severe. Given the nature of his diagnosis associated with the sport & his position....He is a high risk regardless of the outcome. Like I said, if he is there at #17 the medical is a concern for 16 teams so I'm passing too. A player of Jones's caliber who is at no more of a risk than anyone else in the draft would not be in our conversation at #17. This is my opinion...I'm not a Rooney...But I wouldn't have him rated as a 1st rounder on my board. I would not be interested with the risk of investment and liabilty of a player at #17 with his condition.

    I can see that with the addition of a TE in the first 4 rounds. I think we are underestimating how important Heath is in Haley's offense and overestimating Heath's ability to come back 100% from his injury. Not everyone responds to knee surgery like Adrian Peterson.
