    Flippy Mock 1.0 - 2013 Championship Edition

    1. Barkevious Mingo - OLB - 6'4" - 241lbs - Lots of folks seem to think that Jones will fall into our laps, but his production looks just too good for me to think that's possible. I know Colbert will never admit we need anything, but we pretty much need a pass rush and Mingo's athleticism jumps off the chart. Not sure this is a pick that Cowher/Colbert would have made, but I just have a feeling Mingo is the type of kid Tomlin would fall in love with his potential a la Timmons.

    2. Da'Rick Rodgers - WR - 6'3" - 220lbs - I'm mixed on this pick. Kid's got some serious talent, but he's got off field issues too. I think the Steelers are in a bit of desperation mode and will take more chances than usual. I'm actually thinking we see Colbert/Tomlin swinging for the fences on quite a few picks this year - going for guys with huge upside or the possibility to fail miserably.

    3. David Amerson - CB - NC State - 6'1 - 205lbs - He fits the mold of a prototypical Steelers DB except for 1 thing, the kid can play the ball. He had a down year. But had he played like he did the previos year, he'd probably be a first round pick. We do need a long term solution once Ike's gone. But more importantly, we need a DB that can create turnovers. This kid plays the ball so well, I think he could even play FS and become one of the biggest ball hawks in the game.

    4. Shmarko Thomas - SS - Syracuse - 5'9 - 215lbs - Small safety that I think slips because of his size, but he's productive. He's got experience playing S, LB, CB in college and I have a feeling the Steelers coaches would like that versatility. I really think his size is the only thing holding him back from being ranked much higher.

    5. Marcus Lattimore - RB - 5'11" - 221lbs - If he's available in the 5th round like many are saying, you have to take a flyer on him, right? I don't really like any of the top backs in this draft. He might be one of the few that have real potential. Not sure he'll even be ready year 1, but he's got so much talent.

    6. William Gholston - DE - Mich St - 6'6" - 280lbs - Big Powerful kid that I'd take a chance on to see if we can turn him into a long term 3-4 DE.

    6. Brad Wing - P - LSU - We can finally get Chadman an Aussie. Plus we might benefit from a good P more than any other position. So what that he's failed a drug test. We need a punter.

    7. Jake Stoneburner - TE - Ohio St - 6'4" - 250lbs - Seems like he could fit the mold of a versatile H Back that can line up all over the place and create matchup problems. He's definitely the type of TE Arians would have wanted, so I'm gonna assume he influenced Colbert into looking for this type of guy.

    Of all the Aussies you could get (ok, all 2 of them) you had to go pick the one that'd make Chadman cry if drafted...

    just say "NO" to drafting kickers & punters!

    That said, every other pick looks quite good. Seems that most fans will be looking at the same type of players- if not the same actual players.

    We could all be close, or all tragically wrong..

    Very nice. Will be curious to see what Mingo can do in 2015 when Lebeau lets him play. IMO he is a boom or bust player.

    Wouldn't touch Lattimore or Wing though. I think you are going to have to use that Round 5 pick on Stonebruner if you want him and we need a TE.
    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!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB
    7a. Aaron Colvin, CB
    7b. Storm Johnson, RB

    Not a bad draft Flip, if Sanders leaves, then burn one of the 3rds on Stedman Bailey and you're set.

    He once kicked a ball 73 yards.

    Every time Butler gets a chance to do that, he coffin corners the ball out of bounds on his own side of the field.

    I am a big fan of Da'Rick..I like that pick. He brings nastiness on the table which Steelers WRs group lack. Brown and Sanders are too soft and afraid to get hit..

    Not a fan of Mingo though. I am not sure he can play immediately. Also an OLB in Rd 1 would mean Jason Worilds is a bust..One just cannot draft backups in Rd 2. One would expect them to start in 2-3 years. Now is the time for Jason Worlids to take on James Harrison position. Draft an OLB in mid-round/late round as a backup.
    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

    Im not sold on Mingo, but I believe he will be long gone by 17. I don't see the Steelers using a 2nd on a WR with head issues...maybe a 4th. I do like the Gholston, Lattimore, and Stoneburner picks.

    I'm not sold on him either. And that's why I think he might be on the board when we pick and I don't think Tomlin would pass on him.
