I'm not seeing any Top 5 or Top 10 CB talent in this draft. This draft looks pretty stron in the 2-3 range though. IF the Steelers want one...I would say that would the target range.
Steelers 2014 Draft
1--Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State
2--Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
3-- -- Traded --
3B--C.J. Fiedorwicz TE Iowa
4--Ed Reynolds FS Stanford
5--Michael Schofield OT Michigan
6--Jordan Tripp ILB Montana
7--Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
If there is a better player available then the best available CB when the Steelers draft then they should draft the best available player.
The Steelers dont need more young OL to add to the group. They might need a couple of experienced guys though.
WR would make the OL look better.
Not sure if a big play WR is a bigger need than a NT at this point though. Teams are running at will against the Steelers & there is little to no penetration from McLendon in the passing game. the 3-4 Zone Blitz needs a dominant NT. It'll make the DE's look better, the OLB's look better & the ILB's look better.
Schiavone's Race Career:
As to this thread, there are just so many appealing LT prospects, and given our lacking there, it is too hard to pass up. If we do slide out of the Top 10 though by some minor miracle, one name I'm very interested in in that range is Louis Nix III.
I was down on Nix, after ND got manhandled by Bama last year (ran through, over, and around them all night). However, in watching breakdowns of that game, Nix was not the reason why. Nix manhandled Barrett Jones at will all night. He also gave Warmack problems, pushing him around some. And Nix was hustling all over the field, giving excellent effort. I think he would be a GREAT pick somewhere in the teens.
