Thread: If we get 2 nice Wallace/Lewis comp picks would you be willing to trade up for Evans?

  1. #11
    Very conflicted on this one.

    Giving away the third last year really hurts, particularly in a deep draft. If the Steelers truly believes that Evans would be an elite WR, then I think you have to consider the move. The biggest thing that the Steelers need, on both sides of the ball, are guys that will make a difference. If the Steelers really believe that he will be a difference maker, then maybe you do it. If they think that he'll be very good, but not elite, then I think you stand pat and wait until the second round to grab one of the many other big WRs.

Hes vincent jackson when the ball is in the air, but the rest of his game is more like Fitzgerald to me...and fitz didnt run as fast of a 40, he was actually much slower

    Weaknesses

    Monotone mover with pedestrian speed -- cannot separate vertically or pull away from the pack. Unsudden acceleration. Stiff hips. Will have to make a living in traffic at the next level -- will struggle to separate vs. quick-twitch NFL cornerbacks. Did not run a full route tree and could require patience learning the nuances of refined route running. Backyard element to his college success -- must become savvier instead of depending on superior size and improvisational production. Can be hotheaded and lose control of his emotions. Basketball was first love.

    WEAKNESSES: Classic long-strider who does not possess the preferred burst off the snap to instantly challenge defenders off the line or out of his breaks. Relies too much on his size and physicality to win at the catch-point because he struggles to gain consistent separation. Able to dominate the smaller, weaker corners at the collegiate level but could struggle to do so in the NFL.

    That sounds like a Michael Floyd scouting report, which was my first opinion of him. Actually i thought he was pretty overrated until I really got to take the time and watch some all 22 on him over the last week. He has more quickness and is a better route runner than I gave him credit for initially.

    20 years old too, steelers love that

    To be clear, I'm not opposed to taking him... just opposed to trading up.

    Whoops. When you said "I imagine they will get a 3rd, 5th, and 7th" I mistakenly thought you were referring to the Giants in terms of what they would want in a trade down scenario (as opposed to giving them a 4th and a 5th)

    I now realize that you were predicting our comp picks there. Gotcha.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I don't know, it seems that WRs can be had just about anywhere in the draft and since the Steelers already have a proven #1 I don't think they should give up picks to select another potential #1 WR. Take Brandon Coleman in the 4th.

    1.25) Artie Burns - CB, Miami (Mackensie Aleander)
    2.58 ) Sean Davis - S/CB, Maryland (Deion Jones)
    3.89) Javon Hargrave - DT, S. Carolina St. (Nick Vannett)
    4.123) Jerald Hawkins - OT, LSU (Deandre Houston-Carson)
    6.220) Travis Feeny - OLB, Wash (Darius Jackson)
    7.227) Demarcus Ayers - WR, Hou (Graham Glasgow)
    7.246) Tyler Matakevich - OLB, Temple (Travis Feeney)


    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    If the Steelers want to go offensive skill position, I would go with Evans or Ebron but I wouldn't give a pick for either. I think 1 will fall. If both are already selected then I'm just as content with a defensive skill position like Gilbert or Dennard.

    Free agency isn't done yet, Pap. if they get a Carrington, for example, you could lose Hageman from your mock (though, he has left without a contract).

    Pretty sure we'll all have to revise, considering FA picks, etc. At one point, for example, we thought FS was in play for the 1st round pick.
