As far as other positions go, I don't like any ILBs, SS, FS, WR, RB, or NT at 17. There could be an CB, LT, or LG that falls to us even though those aren't desperate positions of need. Overall, I kinda hope we trade down. I think this draft is super deep in rounds 2-5, but kinda stinks around where we pick.
I wouldn't argue with a trade down. It would be nice to add an additional 2nd and maybe another late pick. That would work, I see the same talent at 23-27 as I do at 17.
absolutely. Trade down and pick up another 2nd-3rd
It doesn't have to be complicated.
Just pick the best player available. If that's Eifert, so be it. If that's Vaccaro, so be it.
The team could stand an upgrade at several positions, all mentioned previously....
Just pick the best guy...
Exactly. Lots of problems there these days. I'd be very wary. We have a senior scout that is in love with tu. Clearly he's being shown a good time down there and he's pushing those kids on us.
They've signed top class after top class and have been playing poorly and not developing.

1)17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kenny Vaccaro FS/SS (Texas)
If the Steelers look for a safety early, they might be wise to target the talented Kenny Vaccaro (6’1″ 218 lbs.) as they begin the rebuilding process in their secondary. Vaccaro was the Longhorns’ leading tackler last year (104) and added 4.0 tackles for loss, forced two fumbles, and made 2 interceptions as well. A two-and-a-half year starter at Texas (31 Starts, 50 Games), Vaccaro played both free and strong safety during his collegiate career, and is adept at helping with coverage in the slot in “Big Nickel” packages too.
On the season, we averaged 21 points. That ranks 22nd in the league and just plain isn't good enough. With most of the rules favoring the offense, we need to score more points.
