    True.

    But the demands placed upon Heath's knee will also be drastically less than Peterson as well...

    Not sure that is true if we want him to catch 50+ passes again this season. His Knees carry a much bigger body and he has to push much bigger men around. The dynamic torque may be less for Heath but the power generation may be greater.
    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 noticed that a lot of draft mocks are out the past few days. I thought I was keeping track of the mocks posted by the board. But, what happens is when the mock is updated, the earlier mock is lost. Even if the original mock was saved in the post it is automatically updated I suppose.

    I do think that is because the picks are used as a signature. Then when it is updated the new signature replaces the earlier mock. In order to alleviate this glitch by posting the sigs [mocks] in a post or reply then they can be saved for future reference if desired.

    No comments or replies are necessary. [ That was before I abandoned the idea of making this a new thread] These drafts have already been commented on and dissected. Quite a few popped up in the past couple days.

    Mock Draft v1.0
    Rd1: Jarvis Jones, OLB
    Rd2: Da'Rick Rodgers, WR
    Rd3: T J Mcdonald, S
    Rd4: Jonathan Bostic, ILB
    Rd5: Ray Graham, RB

    Okay going to have to abort. Can't figure out how to put them side by

    side. It is getting too long in single file.

    the above is what happens if the picks are not double spaced.

    Mock Draft v1.0

    Rd1: Jarvis Jones, OLB

    Rd2: Da'Rick Rodgers, WR


    Rd3: T J Mcdonald, S

    Rd4: Jonathan Bostic, ILB

    Rd5: Ray Graham, RB

    Hmm! I previewed the post and in the preview the selections did not crunch together. If it posts that way then the double spacing was not necessary. Going to have to find another method of saving early Dee Dub and Big Rob drafts. Dee Dubs 1st one is already lost.

    Is there a reason for this? Maybe yes, maybe not. But it might be interesting to see how much affect the combine and/or pro day has on draft choices.

    I don't think the picks should change much. It should take some very significant event to change them. Of course, this is mainly because as a fan the opportunity to interview players, and also see how players respond when being confronted with equally talented players [the intimidation factor] is simply not available to fans. Looking forward to post combine/pro day mocks.

    Hmm! I suppose there would reason to stop anyone from posting their Steeler draft in a reply. But not as a signature.

    Just reckon that, given the current roster situation, and Salary Cap woes, that Paulsen will be given every opportunity to play, and a Vet TE will be brought in (Cooley?) or back (Pope?). This Salary Cap situation won't go away next year either. Having 2 highly paid TE's won't make much sense.

    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.

    I see most of us have 7 picks in our mock draft, but actually we have 2 picks in the seventh when we sent Gay to Arizona right?

    Not sure if that's been decided yet. If the Steelers get a compensatory pick, it'll depend on Gay's contract value & production as to what round the pick comes in. Didn't Gay start all year? If so, that might bump the pick up to a 5th.

    I believe he did start, hey if we get a 5 pick thats even better especially with AZ picking early.

    From what I read he started 15 games for the Cards with 45 tk's 12 ast, 1 sack and two Int's....not bad.

    Steelers won't get the Cardinals 5th round pick- they'll just get a 5th tacked on at the end of the round.
