    2. Kuondjio ain't beating out Greg Robinson... not after their respective BCS performances.
    3. Speaking of Tackles, Taylor Lewan in the Top 10 still?
    4. And Marquis Lee over Sammy Watkins?


    Both opinions seem so 2013, as if Charles Davis (NFL expert analyst) didn't even do any research this season.
    Most mocks I've seen have Lewan either Top 10 or 15. I still think a good choice for us if he is there.

    Would love to see Lee over Watkins and Watkins there for us at #15. Either of them or Evans would be great for us at #15.

    Interesting that they have Nix going one pick ahead of us. I think that NT may be a little more a need for us. But the the thought of Timmons and Mosley prowling the inside of the field is daunting. Still though, they need a dominant DL to keep blockers off of them.

    I had the same kind of thought on this draft. Get an elite pass catching option in the first and then load up on defense.

    I think I would be ok with Mosley - from what I've seen, his instincts get as much acclaim as his physical skills - but I would prefer a game changer, regardless of the side of the ball.

    I think Nix will be higher than Evans and Amaro. I think Watkins will be gone. Therefore my board represents who I think has a real shot at being there. Thankfully for the Steelers its D heavy in the middle.

    Lewan? He is a 4th round talent. Have you watched him play? He got abused...and I mean abused by Bosa (tOSU freshman).

    At one point I really wanted Lewan...as a Wolverines fan, I got to watch him a lot. Yeah...he went on a decline especially after the domestic situation he was in regarding threatening a couple of Ohio State fans and allegedly sexually insulting a girl at a party. He looked like a first round talent...but yes, he's ended up looking like a fourth rounder.

    Someone will budge and draft him in the first, I just hope it's not going to be the Steelers at #15.
    Round 1, Pick 25 (25): Artie Burns, CB; Miami
    Round 2, Pick 27 (58 ): Sean Davis, S; Maryland
    Round 3, Pick 26 (89): Javon Hargrave, DT; South Carolina State
    Round 4, Pick 25 (123): Jerald Hawkins, OT; LSU
    Round 6, Pick 45 (220) (Compensatory Selection): Travis Feeney, OLB; Washington
    Round 7, Pick 8 (229) (From Giants): DeMarcus Ayers, WR; Houston
    Round 7, Pick 25 (246): Tyler Matakevich, OLB; Temple

    I would bet money it won't be the Steelers.

    I'm not saying Lewan can't play. Actually, he has lots of qualities that I like to see in an O-lineman: physical talent of course, but also intelligence, and surly. (His surliness is actually a cause for concern. He seems to tread into Incognito territory.) He just has too much competition (Robinson, Kuondjio) in the Top 10. I think he slides into that 16-20 range.

    As for a WR, I would strongly prefer Watkins/Lee over a "big WR" like Evans. I don't see WR as much of a need, but if our FO deems WR to be BPA, I'd be happy to see either in black/gold. (I still strongly lean defense though.)

    The media "experts" who evaluate these guys for a living haven't come close to agreeing with you. Everything I've seen has him solidly in Round 1. Not saying there right and you are wrong but there is a pretty strong concensus that Lewan is more Round 1 talent than Round 4 talent.

    I'd actually prefer a guy like Amaro at TE over the "big WR" however if Mike Evans is there he would be very hard to pass on. I've always thought TEs like Amaro transition to the NFL faster than WRs and create more defensive match up issues.
