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.
The "Optimistic" Offseason:
Taylor, Polamalu, Keisel, & Harrison - Retire
Cortez Allen & Shamarko Thomas - Steelers Believe They Are Starters
Cut - C Thomas & L Moore
Re-Sign Blake, McCain, Golden, W Johnson, & Moats
Re-Sign Worilds ($6 Mil Avg) OR Sign Derrick Morgan/Jabaal Sheard/Brandon Graham/Pernell McPhee
1st Danny Shelton NT
2nd Eli Harold OLB
3rd Jacoby Glenn CB
4th Jesse James TE
5th Matt Jones RB
6a James Sample S
6b Ray Drew DE
7th Kaelin Clay WR
Steelers 2015 Draft???....Go Freak! As in....
1-Bernardrick McKinney MLB Mississippi State 6 ft 5 250 4.5 40 yard dash
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.
