1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 64 323
2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 511 189
3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 66 240-Jarvis Jones replacement
4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 64 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 67 322-raw talent with ton of upside
7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 510 210
7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5 10 185-need WR depth and returner
Not sure why everyone is ok with having bad players and soon to be FAs all over the OL but are beside themselves because Ike "may" retire next year so the team "needs" Cbs. There isn't a real LT on the team, nobody knows if Pouncey can come back after yet another injury, and nobody knows if they will re-sign Gilbert, Pouncey or Whimper next year.
And again, the Steelers had dinner with Lewan, were at Robinson's and Matthew's pro-day. So obviously they don't agree that the OL is set.
The first three round are great. I don't see how Tuitt will last into the middle of the second round. At 6'6, 310 pounds or more, he has elite pass rushing skills (12 sacks in 2013, 7.5 sacks in 2014) and the strength and length to be a great 3-4 or 4-3 guy. Still, fingers crossed on that ( as I mocked him there forever ago)
Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

Most fans have a favorite draft prospect or two they would like to see the Steelers take in the upcoming draft but many of us have another name or two that we would dread seeing our beloved team select in any round.
This is not about who is best suited to be a Steeler but rather those you never want to see donning the Black and Gold. The sort of player you hope the Cleveland Browns would reach for at pick number four or the Baltimore Ravens should waste their selection on in some round.
Maybe it is a player you have seen mocked to the Steelers in a certain round that you believe will be a disaster in Pittsburgh. Perhaps you follow his college team and think he is overrated.
Whatever the reason if there is a prospect you absolutely, categorically, positively, do not want to see in Pittsburgh then we want to hear about it.
To get you started here are my two names that I hope don't get the call from the Steelers on draft day.
Eric Ebron, TE North Carolina - Some say he could be the tall receiver the Steelers need, I see someone that drops too many passes. Some say he could be the replacement for Heath in the future, I see a man who doesnt seem to understand what a block is. Some say could be the Steelers choice at 1.15, I see a bust in waiting.
Louchiez Purifoy, CB Florida - I could extend this to all DBs from Florida in my mind but Purifoy is clearly the most troubling of the lot. A poor season, a bad combine, a worse pro day and then an arrest for marijuana and bath salts in the last month. There are few players I would have the Steelers stay away from more. This kid has imminent suspension and team distraction written all over him.
F Ebron and all his dropped passes and inability to block. F that dude.
Jimmy Graham was notorious for dropped passes at Miami.
Then again, he was a 3rd round pick
I gotta say I really have no idea which way they will go. Unless someone falls, it seems that any CB or WR that would be available at #15 wont be worthy of being picked that high by most of the stuff that I have read. Trade down?
