    Who Would You Draft?

    These are the 14 players taken before us.... and there are no trade down options

    Manziel, Bortles, Bridgewater
    Clowney, Mack, Barr, Mosley
    Robinson, Matthews
    Watkins, Evans
    Ebron
    Gilbert, Dennard

    Id probably go with either Lee or Benjamin, but fuller, hageman, and shazier would get my consideration

    That could be what the Steelers are up against. If you can't find a trade down partner in that scenario...You might be overdrafting a guy now. The BPA in that scenario would be Lewan. Nobody wants an OL with the first pick....But he would be BPA. Board may look like:

    Lewan
    Fuller
    Benjamin
    Nix
    Lee
    Hageman
    Roby
    Shazier

    Really is difficult to nail down. From Nix back...I believe is all too early for #15. I would have too be 110% sold on Fuller & Benjamin to take at #15. To stay with the Steelers philosophy that has served them well...They may go with BPA in Lewan. Personally....I would go with Benjamin if I had to pick.

    BPA would be Taylor Lewan there, so that would be the pick (there is enough depth at WR and CB to still be able to find quality ones on day two of the draft). Munchak should be able to manage with Beachum, Gilbert, and Adams at tackle, but giving him someone nasty like Taylor Lewan would be giving him someone with that rough edge to his game that he could plug in for a decade like some of the tackles he has worked with in the past like Jon Runyan and Michael Roos.


    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.

    Why not? He's got size, he's got athleticism, he's got a mean streak, and he's played in a major conference. Tackle prospects like that don't exactly grow on trees. And it's not like we have any All-Pro tackles on our roster.

    I'd be OK with Lewan especially since Munchak is now here to train these guys up. Having depth at OT is a good probalem to have, plus it would allow Beachum to move to Left Guard which I think he would excel at in a zone blocking scheme.

    To me hes not even as good as Reily Reiff was (who is a decent player) or Gabe Carimi (who is terrible now)

    Combine hero and Im not interested. Id be much more inclined to see what munchak can do with beachum/adams/gilbert....the only reason he was brought in

    I think I would go with Donald. I know, he doesn't fit into our system ... blah, blah, blah, but a good football player is a good football player. I think he will be a disrupter no matter what system he plays in. With Heyward on one side and Donald on the other we might be able to push the middle of the pocket and start getting some more sacks.
