Ebron would be burried on the depth chart. Speath wouldn't be cut in favor of Ebron because he won't be ready inline his rookie year. If they believe he is the BPA I'm sure he will be considered but I don't se him being rated highly as a Steeler TE...I don't see the "fit". I think they would be more interested in Jenkins or a Niklas outside the 1st.
1st Eli Harold OLB / Kevin Johnson CB
2nd PJ Williams CB / Danielle Hunter OLB
3a Jesse James TE
3b Eric Rowe DB
4th Lorenzo Mauldin OLB
5th Karlos Williams RB
6th Ray Drew DE
7a DaVaris Daniels WR
7b Max Garcia OL
Ebron to me is in the Vernon Davis-caliber of a TE prospect. MANY TEs recently have been 2nd/3rd/4th round picks and bee wildly successful, teams keep looking for that next one with guys like Eifert, Rudolph, Gresham, Pettigrew, Fleener, Ertz...all fine players, but not that kind of dynamic weapon teams are looking for when trying to find the next gronk or graham.
Its worth taking a flier on to me though, Ebron can be one hell of an added weapon
I do really like Niklas and ASJ, both would be great fits. Amaro is pretty meh to me
I see the logic of going strong on O...I really do. But, it feels like we are sacrificing the future in hopes of squeezing out one more SB. It seems to be going against what has made this organization great...and that's picking the best player. Now, if Evans and KB are the best players on their board...so be it.
The offense is good enough to play in a Super Bowl, the defense, not so much.
