    Well, there is NO ONE that comes close to a Luck in this draft. No way do they trade the franchise QB. that's just absurd. Also, as far as the season being officially over? No, it's not. Especially if SD would continue to falter.

    Maybe a short trip to Cleveland may change your mind about QB theory and their importance to a team. They are still looking for one...

    Matt Barkley.... he looked awesome vs Dallas a few weeks ago. All that glitters ain't gold.

    We can still go 11-5, make the playoffs, and win the SuperBowl. Nothing's over til it's over.

I'd like to have that opportunity for the first time in well over a decade. Hopefully the FO won't blow it.
    If the Steelers are picking in the top 8, they have a real shot at both the guys listed in my mock. And let me tell you that would go a long way to helping this team. Both those guys I believe are the real deal. And the LT in the first I listed might be the only LT with quick enough feet to be a perrenial pro bowler on the left side.

    BTW: Besides LT, I can only think of two dark horse positions the Steelers may consider. NT could be a target...considering Louis Nix should be sitting there. He should be the next Casey Hampton. The DL hasn't been the same since he left. Also, QB is a position I could see the Steelers picking if the right guy was sitting there.

    I would hate a Nose Tackle in the Top 10. IMO no way they take a QB until they know Ben is one to two years away from leaving. It would create issues.

    Left Tackle is obviously the best choice and the best pick we could make.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Top 5-10 would have to be a LT unless someone develops down the stretch. If that is the case...The Steelers should field every offer let someone give up some picks to come get a QB. Then maybe Mike Evans if they sit somewhere in the 10-15 range. Since there isn't any signs of that happening right now...You would think it has to be a Mathews, Lewan, or Kouandjio. Maybe the new injuries on the OL with some shuffling will answer some questions before the year is out.

    If we get a high pick, I'd hope there's a good QB on the board when we're drafting that someone really wants and would trade down.
