    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.
    Carrington would probably change my mock, I've like Hageman even before Woods and Hood left, I didn't think the Steelers had the bookend to Heyward on the roster. Carrington is draft changer for sure, but since he left without a contract, I'm guessing the Browns will back the Brinks truck up to his house for him. The funny thing is the Browns defense was pretty good, they need offense, IMO.

    In any normal draft year I would consider it. But, it's like taking a double whammy in the deepest draft of the last 30 years. So, we lose picks in a deep draft known for being especially deep at WR. I personally don't think it's a wise move no matter how good Evans appears to be.

    Might consider it, but not for Evans. I love his ability to go get the ball, but I've also seen him lose his cool and take a few quarters to "get over it". His head will keep him from being elite, despite his talent. Would consider trading up to 10-13 if his teammate (Matthews) fell. Plug-in solid to really good LT for the next 10 years, and the bloodline is proven.

    Yup.
    Given the supposed talent level in this year's draft, the amount of holes on this team, the fact that Evans is only a WR (not a franchise QB), or that Evans isn't a sure-fire superstar... no thanks.

    I could see doing what you have suggested, if we continue to fill some holes via free agency. Heck, we gave up a mid round pick for Landry Jones last year..lol.

    I agree with Shoe and Shawn - too many holes to get rid of picks in a deep draft
    1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech
    6. Josh Mauro DE Stanford
    6. (comp) Shaquil Barrett OLB Colorado State
    7. Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska

    I personally believe that either Dennard, Gilbert, Evans, Nix, or Mosely will be there at 15. And because of that you dont trade.
    Steelers 2014 Draft

    1-Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
    2-Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3-Jordan Tripp ILB/OLB Montana
    4-Christian Jones ILB Florida State
    5-Brent Urban DE Virginia
    5-Michael Schofield OG/OT Michigan
    6-Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
    6-Ben Gardner DE Stanford
    7-Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma
