    The Problem With Pick 17

    There's not likely gonna be a sure thing. I doubt there's any legit guaranteed 1st round talent left at that point. In a way, every pick I've seen suggested looks insane to a degree. Everyone's questionable.

    Do we overdraft a TE?
    Do we draft a guy pushing 30?
    Do we draft Catfish?
    Do we draft another G?
    Maybe we grab a T?
    A CB?
    A WR?
    A LB?

    We've talked about a ton of guys over the last few months because there's no clear cut guy to be taken at this point. Most of the choices that feel like they'll be there make me feel blah.

    Rounds 2-5, I could draft 40 guys that are exciting at that point. But pick 17 doesn't give me a warm fuzzy.

    Will the Steelers take a risk or play it safe? This is just one of those years, I'm not as excited about our first pick heading into the draft.

    I get the feeling that one of the higher rated players will fall and we'll continue the trend of grabbing a guy that falls to us unexpectedly. No idea who that will be or what position...
    BnB Mock 2017
    1. Kevin King CB Washington
    2. Jordan Willis Edge Kansas State
    3. Justin Evans S Texas A&M
    3. Jordan Leggett TE Clemson
    4. Tanoe Kpassagnon DE Villanova
    5. Brian Hill RB Wyoming
    6. Jerod Evans QB Virginia Tech (or Chad kelly if Evans is gone)
    7. Robert Davis WR Georgia State

    Another AS masterpiece.

    Jones is far from questionable. I could care less what he runs the 40 in shorts. He is medically clear. He is the best pass rusher in the upcoming draft and we just might get him.

    ...or he is Huey Richardson or Vernon Gholston. None of these pass rusher or any other player is a sure thing for the NFL.
    1. Charles Harris-OLB, Missouri
    2. Rasul Douglas-CB, West Virginia
    3. Chris Godwin-WR, Penn State
    4. John Johnson-S, Boston College

    Tyler Eifert might be Anthony Becht. Cordarelle Patterson might be Troy Williamson. Eddie Lacy might be Blair Thomas.

    Or he's Lawrence Timmons. An ILB or 4-3 OLB, but not a good fit at 3-4 OLB in the NFL.
    Here comes the BOOM!
