    I think they should go with DJ Swearinger and Da'Rick Rogers.
    1. CB Marcus Peters Washington 6/190
    2. OG Josue Matias Florida State 6-6/320
    3. OLB Geneo Grissom Oklahoma 6-4/250

    5. TE Jeff Heurman Ohio State 6-5/255
    6. FS Adrian Amos Penn State 6/200
    7. DT Terry Williams East Carolina 6-1/340

    DB Justin Cox Mississippi St. 6-2/190

    What I really want to see are 3 long term priorities:

    1. Pressure the QB

    2. Create Turnovers

    3. Score TDs in the Redzone

    So it leaves me wide open on who we can take in the next few rounds.

    1. Requires NT, CBs, S, and LBs

    2. Requires guys that get INTs and FF and pressure the QB

    3. WRs, TEs, LT, G, RB

    From there, narrow down where you are strong and where you are weak. We could use another ILB to help in coverage of TEs, RBs, and slot WRs to force the QB to hold the ball longer. Eventually we're gonna need some safeties down the road.

    The biggest problem with the pass rush is we weren't able to collapse the center of the pocket and QBs could step up to avoid pressure. Casey's replacement is our other big need after ROLB. So if we're going need again, that should be the pick to help the pass rush, which will lead to forced decisions, FFs, and turnovers.

    We need DBs that can play the ball in the air and get INTs.

    Some big WRs or extra pass catching TEs would help in the RedZone. Consistency in the OLine and the right RB would also help to run inside the 20s.

    It's a lot to consider and it's hard to prioritize. And we need some insight into the Steelers long term thinking around FAs in future years to consider what the best move would be. This is an impossible equation to solve.

    I'll be rooting for guys like Keenan Allen, Zach Ertz, and Kevin Minter to fall.

    1.28 LB Leighton Vander Esch, Boise St. 6'4" 256
    2.60 C/G Billy Price, Ohio St. 6'4" 305
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates III, Wake Forest 6'1" 200
    5.148 LB Oren Burks, Vanderbilt 6'3" 233
    5.165 TE Christopher Herndon, Miami 6'4" 253
    7.220 RB Ito Smith, Southern Miss 5'9" 201
    7.246 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, South Florida 6'4" 206

    Given that 0 RB's have come off the board, but 3 Safeties have... Chadman would probably suggest Safety in Rd 2 & RB in Rd3, just for value reasons, with ILB & WR headlining the Day 3 picks.
    Cyprien, Brown, Te'o or Minter in that order I could not pass on any of these guys if they are there at our pick.

    Gerry Dulac mock draft has Steelers trading up in second round

    By Neal Coolong on Apr 25 2013

    It may not be the most likely mock draft ever written, but it sure seems nice.

    Post-Gazette reporter Gerry Dulac has an interesting mock draft up at the last minute.

    While the Steelers take the unpopular choice, Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert. They will rebound to take The Judge - Kansas State LB Arthur Brown.

    North Carolina RB Giovani Bernard goes to Pittsburgh in the third round, along with Georgia S Bacarri Rambo in the fourth.

    Regardless of the likelihood of this happening, it would likely make Steelers fans happy.

    It would then go to Miami University QB Zac Dysert, Oklahoma WRJustin Brown, and Grand Valley State WR Charles Johnson.

    He finishes it off with Penn State LB Michael Mauti.

    People aren't going to cry about that. The question is how, exactly, the Steelers would get up in the second round, which isn't marked in Dulac's mock, but his headline says a trade is involved.

    If that is the outcome, it doesn't seem likely fans would mind all that much.

    As I said in the draft chat a few times, I'd love to get ILB Arthur Brown.

    Solid names. I would like Ertz as I feel he is the best TE in this draft.

    Offense. Offense. And more offense.

    I would generally lean towards the offense, with Keenan Allen probably my #1 choice. Depending on how things fall, if Arthur Brown or Minter were available, they would be awfully tempting. Regardless, I think the Steelers are poised to get a good player in round 2.
