    Annual PlanetSteelers Board Mock Draft (2014 commentary thread)

    Feel free trash talk each other, praise solid picks, make fun of crappy picks (within reason, of course...be respectful in your mocking of this mock draft). You can suggest trades to each other via PM, but you can make public that a certain pick is on the trade block on this thread if you'd like. Enjoy...

    I don't want to leapfrog SoD's Houston pick, because he tried to PM me his pick early and it was my fault that my PM inbox was full. I'll wait the full hour before making my Rams #2 pick until 11:00 to give SoD an opportunity to log on in the next 45 minutes. If we don't hear from him, I think I'll just give him Clowney first before making my second pick (rather than bumping him down to the 3rd overall pick).

    The Falcons draft board is a mess right now, given that the picks in front of them ran for the podium at the same time, collided and lie passed out on the floor
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    When noon hit, squidkid had the option of leapfrogging flippy, but so far no signs of either of them. Since rules stipulate that a team can be leapfrogged twice if they don't make their pick on time, an hour from now, you can go ahead and make your two picks for the Falcons and Bucs. Then I would choose for the Jags (down from #3 to #5), Browns (down from #4 to #6), and Raiders (down from #5 to #7). I suppose I'd also pick for the Vikings at #8 then, if no one has claimed them this afternoon.

    Ok. I'm a little confused though. If the Falcons at 6 picked, wouldn't they be leapfrogging 3 teams (picks 3-5), not two? Also, I don't want to step on any toes or screw up the "reality" of the mock draft.

    I can help with picks tomorrow (I see there are not too many team pickup up yet). I will PM you when I get up in the morning (which depends on how late I get back from Columbus tonight - going to the Pens game!).

    Thanks for that, Ruthless. I was tempted to just go ahead and post it yesterday, but, thought I'd get online in time.

    I can't in good conscience take Sammy Watkins at #7 as that would be unbelievable. Ruthless, do you want me to help you with picks 3-5.

    True, you would be moving up 3 spots, but each of those teams (Jacksonville, Cleveland, and Oakland) would only be leapfrogged twice, which is what the rule states. You can wait for the 3:00 hour to make your pick for Tampa if you want, just in case flippy or squidkid show up before then. But I wouldn't worry about Watkins to Tampa being unrealistic. Watkins at #4 is certainly not unrealistic, and Tampa would have the 4th pick in order for the no shows to be leapfrogged a second time.

    Original order:
    1. Houston
    2. St. Louis
    3. Jacksonville
    4. Cleveland
    5. Oakland
    6. Atlanta
    7. Tampa

    New Order:
    1. Houston
    2. St. Louis
    3. Atlanta
    4. Tampa
    5. Jacksonville
    6. Cleveland
    7. Oakland

    I should be able to handle the JAX/CLE/OAK picks in their stead if they don't show up today, but if you want to man a few more teams tomorrow or Wednesday or Thursday, have at it! And have a great time at the game tonight. Let's finally shut the door on these pesky Blue Jackets tonight!
