    Given who our Def Coord is why would you EVER think that is possible?
    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!

    4. TE Travis Kelce, Cincinnati
    5. WR Kenny Stills, Oklahoma

    I love the first two picks (Zach Ertz would be tempting in round 2, but I'd have to take Minter if he fell to us at #48), and hate the 3rd round pick, especially with Eric Reid still on the board for us in round 3. Davis is a physical freak who was productive in 2010, then injured in 2011, and a complete non-factor in 2012 even though he was healthy. In the 4th, why would you be willing to take a chance on an average TE like Kelce coming off sports hernia surgery and not a potentially elite RB like Lattimore coming off knee surgery...if you are going to take a chance on an injured player in the middle rounds, you might as well swing for the fences. Kenny Stills provides solid value in round 5, so I'd stick with that pick. Based on who Walter has available for us where we are picking, I would take:

    1. OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia
    2. ILB Kevin Minter, LSU
    3. FS Eric Reid, LSU
    4. RB Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina
    5. WR Kenny Stills, Oklahoma
    I agree. I like the first 2 picks, and while Ertz is tempting in the second, I think you have to go with Minter. In the third, I'm not sure about Reid, but Stedman Bailey, Phillip Thomas and Da'Rick Rodgers, among others, are tempting. And I'd probably prefer Bell over Davis at RB. Barrett Jones also fits nicely as a guy who can back up every spot on the line and probably eventually step in as a starter.

    In the 4th, if taking a risk, I might even take Mathieu. I also see TJ McDonald as a guy who makes sense.

    If the draft falls as Walter predicts, I think I'd do the following right now:

    1) DeAndre Hopkins
    2) Minter
    3) Sio Moore
    4) TJ McDonald
    5) Dysert

    With Bradshaw signed as a free agent.

    I would absolutely love for the draft to unfold this way!

    If an injury occurs to Worlids maybe. I know Carter backs up Worlids but JJ should be an upgrade over Cater even as a rookie.
    Of course Jarvis could be gone by the time we pick, so in that case pick the mismatch maker Eifert and call it a day.
