    Very astute observations MJG, very astute indeed.

    Depends when the QB's start going. Could see Barkley & Nassib go in 2 before Manuel but who knows. Lots of these guys are so close its hard to tell who will go off the board first. Could be a draft of runs where once one WR goes a group of WR go. That sort of thing. CAN'T WAIT TILL TOMORROW!

    1st Round: Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame

    3rd Round: Stedman Bailey WR West Virginia
    4th Round: Christine Michael RB Texas A&M
    5th Round: John Simon OLB Ohio State
    6th Round:Tony Jefferson FS Oklahoma
    6th Round: Zac Stacy RB Vanderbilt
    7th Round: Michael Mauti LB Penn State
    Not a fan of TE in Rd#1....I just don't see the value.

    QB in Rd 2 is way too high for a team who has way too many holes to fill....I don't see the point in drafting a QB in Rd 2 who will be backup to Ben for his entire rookie contract.


    I like rest of the pick but i will be disappointed with Rd 1 and Rd 2 picks.
    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

    A rebuilding team could get a lot for a Superbowl winning QB that has a year or two left in the tank....having a QB ready to start would enable Ben to be moved.

    Ben's probably got another 7-10 years in him. Most QBs start to peak in their 30s.

    +1

    Why would you trade your franchise QB who has 5-6 good years remaining for draft picks??

    How many 2nd Rd or later QB are franchise QB in NFL???
