    10 Things about the draft you probably don't know

    To keep in mind as you are doing your mock sigs.


    1) Jarvis Jones will ABSOLUTELY be a top 12 pick.
    2) Gavin Escobar will be a top 40 pick and go before Ertz.
    3) Eddie Lacy will be a first round RB
    4) Ziggy Ansah will be a top 8 pick
    5) Jake Stoneburner will not make it out of the 5th round.
    6) The Sinkfield kid ran all his times in the 4.33 range and should go undrafted, he is not a good FB player.
    7) Johnathan Cooper or Chance Warmack will be available at 1/17.
    There will be plenty of NT's available for the Steelers 2nd round pick.
    9) Zero chance the Steelers draft a WR in round 1. (Even if Patterson is there)
    10) Travis Kelce will not be on the Steelers draft board.
    2015 Draft

    1) P.J. Williams-CB-Florida St.
    2) Jordan Phillips-DT-Oklahoma
    3) Geneo Grissom-OLB-Oklahoma
    4) Jeff Heuerman-TE-OSU
    5)
    Clint Trickett-QB-WVU
    6) Justin Coleman-CB-Tenn
    7) Spencer Roth-P-Baylor

    10) Travis Kelce will not be on the Steelers draft board.
    1) Jarvis Jones will ABSOLUTELY be a top 12 pick. Ok I see no reason why not.
    2) Gavin Escobar will be a top 40 pick and go before Ertz. That is a bold statement! I disagree. Teams want a "big wr" type TE now. Blockers go later.
    3) Eddie Lacy will be a first round RB I am sure someone will take the chance toward the end of the 1st round on a RB.
    4) Ziggy Ansah will be a top 8 pick Again someone will gamble on him.
    5) Jake Stoneburner will not make it out of the 5th round. Again this could be very true. Teams want good play making TE's
    6) The Sinkfield kid ran all his times in the 4.33 range and should go undrafted, he is not a good FB player. But can the kid be coached? Become a good FB player?
    7) Johnathan Cooper or Chance Warmack will be available at 1/17. Good if one of them is BPA for the Steelers pull the trigger.
    There will be plenty of NT's available for the Steelers 2nd round pick. I am on the fence with the NT pick. I think BPA is for 2nd Rd also.
    9) Zero chance the Steelers draft a WR in round 1. (Even if Patterson is there) I agree and hope so
    10) Travis Kelce will not be on the Steelers draft board.[/QUOTE] Why? Have read some good stuff about him. Figure it is off the field stuff?

    I think Steelers draft pick is Jonathan Hankins if he is available at 1.17 and there are no pass-rusher available.

    Dick Lebeau was there on his pro-day and Steelers like tOSU players. It seems Steelers don't value Steve McClendon much. This pick will change if Steve is signed long term.
    Steelers Draft
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    Ugh, I hope not. I'm not a fan of tOSU, and the last 2 first rounders the Steelers got from their both ended up with attitude issues (have read in a few places that Heyward is not well liked, and of course Holmes)...

    I agree, I have been hesitant on OSU players as well recently. Maybe defensive line coach Mike Vrabel will turn that around for the d-lineman, this will be his 2nd or 3rd year at that position. I would rather go corner for our first pick.
    1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech
    6. Josh Mauro DE Stanford
    6. (comp) Shaquil Barrett OLB Colorado State
    7. Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska

    This is the first year in quite a few that the draft seems so vital. The draft is always important, but the Steelers were drafting late and basically were a good team that had some limited roles to fill. This year, the team is coming off a poor year where health was a major issue. If the team were able to keep more or less the same players but just get healthy we would be in a pretty good spot. However, it looks like due to player losses there are needs in so very many areas.

    The Steelers have a top starting QB, a good OL and D-backs. And that's about it. The LB corps and front three are lacking. The WR corps is OK, but doesn't seem to have a guy that can find the EZ. Heath is not expected to play early in the year and his backup is a backup at best. The FO has already weighed in on their opinion of the RB group.

    It's nice to be able to draft for depth and eventual starter. This year it doesn't appear that the Steelers have that luxury.
