    The Big 5

    I am going to say the Big 5 are Mingo, Womack, Cooper, Jones, and Patterson. My prediction (unless Mingo falls) the pick will be Jones. If not I would say Cooper or Patterson.

    One of the players above will be our #1 pick.

    3 years ago the team invested a 2nd round pick in a pass rusher. Chadman suspects they'll give him a chance to win that ROLB spot before finding his replacement. On top of that, Jones is 24 years old. The Steelers 'tend' to look at the 20-22yo types. Mingo has some character concerns (immaturity) that might cause some concern for the Steelers...

    Patterson Chadman gets. That said, it's a deep class at WR & Patterson is apparently a brick with a face.

    The 2 OG's could be the pick, but what if the Steelers target a 'higher value' position like OT instead of OG? What if the 3rd or 4th best OT is on the board- like DJ Fluker, for example?

    And when the Steelers drafted Lawrence Timmons way back when, they got an active, athletic LB. Every other ILB the Steelers have looked at has fit that mold- Sylvester, Spence- faster, athletic types. Arthur Brown is that type of player. And he isn't a character risk.

    I would say the big 5 would be Cooper, Eifert, Brown, a WR who they like, or unfortunately Vaccaro (bust imo). I don't know what it is this year but I'm having a hard time falling for guys like Patterson and Jones.

    My favorite move in this draft - Trade down... but, that's closely followed by taking Manti Te'o (I would LOVE to see the reaction on this board... pretty sure about half you guys would have a stroke).

    The FO should be talking to Minny and Atlanta both of whom have expressed an interest in trading up. Have the outlines of a deal in place and if the board falls the way they want pull the trigger.

    I only see two of those...Jones and Mingo. I would have a really hard time believing the Steelers want to spend another first rounder on an interior lineman. And while Patterson is good, this is a very deep WR class.

    You say that the Steelers used a second rounder on an OLB and they will see what they got. You may be right, but wouldn't that also hold true for the Tackle position? We have two second rounders as our bookends with much to prove this season. Why would they draft a tackle to replace either?

    Because they could then kick-slide Gilbert into OG..

    I honestly believe Foster to be an above average NFL guard. His play graded out very well last season. Not sure moving Gilbert in is anything more than a horizontal move. Also, why would Gilbert agree? Gilbert has arguably LT skills and will want a shot to make tackle money.
