    I don't see either Safety going in top 25

    If Evans isn't there, ya gotta think that Ebron may get the nod here.

    He's an inch shorter than Evans and 1/10 of a second slower, but he would probably get the job done just as well with Ben throwing him the ball.

    If the Steelers are still looking for a rangy WR, they can look in rounds 4-7(if they don't get Evans).

    I would probably look for a DB and a DL with picks 2 and 3(not necessarily respectively) if we pick up a pass-catcher for Ben in Rnd. 1.

    Of course, a trade down, but staying in the top 20, is still a nice option as well.

    I could see Clinton Dix going top 25. Denver needs a safety and if they don't land Byrd, then Pryor may go in that slot (31). they're currently 30 mil under the cap and may have the cash to get Byrd.

    The chances of trading down are slim to none...

    This would be a worst-case scenario for the Steelers, but I doubt it happens. I suspect that Barr will be gone before the Steelers pick. I would also count on at least one or two unexpected picks early. You have Donald, who I think qualifies, but I've read that the Raiders really like Carr. They could grab him early, which would lead to another team taking a QB and another position player falling.

    I'm not a big trade back proponent, but you could take any one of Barr, Ebron or Lee in this situation and be fine. I'm not a big trade-back proponent, but the Steelers could also trade back here, and get a Kyle Fuller or one of the safeties later.

    This draft is loaded with talent. You will find first rounders in the second, 2nd in the third and so on.

    If the draft falls this way and the Steelers couldn't find a trade partner...I suspect the guy would be Ebron. I think they would use him in the slot and as a second TE right out of the gates. A guy like that really allows you to disguise your looks...run, pass, no huddle would create some real mismatches. If they run nickel...the Steelers have two TEs on the field and run Bell down the D's throat. If the D gets stuck, while Ben is running no huddle in a 4-3, 3-4 Ebron becomes a mismatch nightmare for opposing LBs.
