    Matt Millers 7 rd mock draft

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...y-rush/page/18

    So what do you guys think?

    1) Jarvis Jones OLB
    2) Kevin Minter ILB
    3) Markus Wheaton WR
    4) Montee Ball RB
    5) Robert Lester SS
    6) Nick Kasa TE
    6) John Boyett FS
    7) Walter Stewart OLB

    Seems to hit all the Steelers needs to well. I am not sold on Jones. Seems Minter fits well. Wheaton is not the big WR but might fit the offense well. I want Bell over Ball at this point. Lester I have no clue but a need. Kasa seems like more of a blocking TE. Boyett sounds like Clark if healthy. Stewart I have no idea, but seems there would be a better option for the Steelers at this point in the draft.

    Bailey from WVU fits better at WR. He's a possession type WR that we need.

    If Jones falls to #17 and Minter falls to #48, then our LB corps is complete for the foreseeable future. The 3-4 defense is based on strong LB play, and being able to field Jones-Timmons-Minter-Woodley, with Worilds and Foote as depth players, would make me a happy guy.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I agree...Bailey would be a better fit here in Pittsburgh.
    Round 1, Pick 25 (25): Artie Burns, CB; Miami
    Round 2, Pick 27 (58 ): Sean Davis, S; Maryland
    Round 3, Pick 26 (89): Javon Hargrave, DT; South Carolina State
    Round 4, Pick 25 (123): Jerald Hawkins, OT; LSU
    Round 6, Pick 45 (220) (Compensatory Selection): Travis Feeney, OLB; Washington
    Round 7, Pick 8 (229) (From Giants): DeMarcus Ayers, WR; Houston
    Round 7, Pick 25 (246): Tyler Matakevich, OLB; Temple

    I like the first 2 picks, but if the draft falls like this guy has it, you almost have to take John Jenkins or Johnathan Hankins in the third. If WR, I prefer Terrance Williams over Wheaton.

    I know that could end up with a D heavy draft, but it would be tough to pass on those guys in round 3.

    I agree as well other than Stedman being a possession guy. . Stedman was the long ball guy at WVU. If the pass went down the field it was usually Stedman on the other side. Tavon was generally the guy that would be given the ball if we needed a couple yards. Stedman was the long ball guy. If Austin went long it was because he broke one, Not because he beat someone deep.

    The mock hits a lot of need area's but I think we can mix it up more. There is no QB in the draft and I am pretty sure we draft one in the 2-5 range this year, depending on who is on the board. Also we can get a better idea of who we are taking once the visits are complete.
    LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!
    Here We Go Steelers!


    1. Andrew Billings NT Baylor
    2. Karl Joseph SS WVU
    3. Sterling Shepard WR Oklahoma
    4. Jonathan Jones CB Auburn
    6. Nick Kwiatkoski ILB WVU
    7. Dean Lowry DE Northwestern
    7. Deon Bush S Miami

    That would be a very good draft.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
