    who the @#$% are we taking?

    seems in past drafts, you could narrow down the possible steeler picks to 3-4 guys based on needs, visits, rumors etc.
    at this point, i dont see where one position is a frontrunner.

    I think you could narrow it down to Jones, Vaccaro, Eifert, and Lacy and have a greater than 70 percent chance of getting it right.
    2014 NFL Draft
    1) ​Darqueze Dennard-DB MSU
    2) Jordan Matthews-WR Vandy
    3) Chris Borland-ILB Wisconsin
    4) Caraun Reid, DT Princeton
    5) De'Anthony Thomas-RB Oregon
    5b) Ryan Carrethers-NT Arkansas State
    6) Jeff Janis-WR Saginow Valley State
    6b) Seantrel Henderson, OT MIami
    7) Colt Lyerla -TE Oregon

    I would agree with this list.

    toss cooper on there if he is still available.

    Jones, Cooper, or Patterson. Those are the big 3 unless Mingo or Womack fall.

    If the draft is deep at SS, I'd go OLB or TE in round 1 and pick up a SS in the middle rounds that can develop under the current players/system. Same could be said for receiver and corner.. Definitely need to take a top 5 caliber of running back in the 3rd round...not another Redmond, Dwyer type... Thinking we should get an ILB in the second round.

    As far as the O line, we've already invested 2 1st rd picks and 2 second rd picks there in recent years. Time for those guys to "Man up" and get the job done.

    I like the QB from NC State (Glennon) in the later rounds if he's still available. I saw on the NFL Network this morning that Phil Sims was calling him the 2nd best QB in this year's draft. He's got all the tangibles.. I figure a few years under Ben and he could be a worthy replacement.

    You actually think they'd take Lacy in round 1? I think I'd be kinda ticked off if they took him at 17. I'm just not feelin' the love for a RB in round 1.
    1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Kenny Ladler FS Vanderbilt
    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech or Jordan Tripp LB Montana
    6. Ricardo Allen CB Purdue
    6. (comp) Andrew Jackson ILB W. Kentucky
    7. Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska

    Actually, there are a couple of names you could add to the 'potential' list: Arthur Brown & DJ Fluker. Agree with the OP, this is a hard year to zero-in on the actual target.
    Schiavone's Race Career:

    Starts- 9
    Wins- 1
    2nd- 4
    3rd- 0
    Other- 4

    Replace Vaccaro with Austin, and please replace Lacy with pretty much anyone else (not that Lacy can't play; just that we can get productive RBs anywhere down the line)... and I'd be thrilled if the FO has to make that choice.

    Please don't take Jones. A bust waiting to happen.

    I like Arthur Brown if he's around when the steelers pick.
