    My concerns are his 18 missed tackles and -5.9 grade against the run.
    2017 Mock

    1. T.J Watt, OLB/DE, Wisconsin - will be a huge mistake if available and we pass

    2. Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson

    3. Josh Jones, S, N.C. State

    3. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

    4. Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

    5. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

    6. Barry Sanders, RB, Oklahoma State (How can you go wrong with that name, however the sample size is so small that his dad may be better even in his 50's)

    7. Alec Torgersen, QB, Pennsylvania

    He is a punishing tackler. Nice pick up.

    I like this signing a lot. Now go after an ILB to replace Foote and I'm ecstatic....

    And at 27, takes away the need to draft a FS.
    Between he and Will Allen, I am feeling good about FS right now.

    Wow. I don't know about you all, but I didn't see this coming. Nice to see this kind of hushed up work by the front office. Nice signing.

    Brandon Spikes? Wonder if he is cheap--he has character flaws, but, is a gamer

    I generally like this move. With FS set, the Steelers have eliminated one of the needs from their board.

    The contract for Mitchell is a bit high for my taste, especially considering that TJ Ward signed for less than $6 million / year, but from what I've read on Mitchell, his style will fit well in Pittsburgh.

    Here is what Panthers fans had to say, for what it's worth:

    Does that seem a bit high? I thought Malcom Jenkins would come cheaper. That's a decent chunk of change.
