    With the 28th pick; "The Experts" say the Steelers will pick...

    I looked at 25 mock drafts and outside of Evens getting the majority of votes; itís all over the board. Gives you some names to research if interested.


    Rashaan Evens, ILB, Alabama (9)
    Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville (3)
    Derrius Guice, RB, LSU (2)
    Mike Hughes, CB, UCF (2)
    Justin Reid, FS, Stanford
    Jessie Bates, S, Wake Forest
    Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville
    Leighton Vander Esch, ILB, Boise St
    DJ Moore, WR, Maryland
    Malik Jefferson, OLB, Texas
    Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa
    Tremaine Edmunds, LB, VA tech
    Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

    If Evans falls to us there is little doubt in my mind that he's the pick.

    I don't understand the press that Mike Hughes is getting. He is a great athlete and exciting return man, but he is far from a complete CB. I watched his whole career at UCF and I would say he is no better than a late second or early third player. If he goes in Round 1 he is getting way overdrafted

    I still want LVE at #28 (if healthy), but would also be happy with Evans, Tremaine Edmunds (not happening), Justin Reid or Lamar Jackson.

    I actually like HUGHES a lot.
    However with ILB as pressing of an issue there's no way I could justify picking him over a position of need. Unless EVANS is gone and the LVE rumors are true.
    I'd still look at someone else in that position.

    Go back two years ago then I'd consider him.

    Hmmm, imagine him JuJu and AB on the field at the same time?
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    Call me a geek, I can't wait to see how this draft unfolds!

    So many options we can go, BPA ( OG,WR, TE, RB, OLB, NT) or position we think are need ( ILB, S). My bet is on 4 players in this order: LVE, Evens, Reid, Harrison.
    1) Harrison, S
    2) Nsowu, ILB
    3) Pettis, WR
    5) Ballenger, RB
    5) D. Shultz, TE
    7) Gage, WR
    7) Frazier, DL

    * trade Bryant a 3rd and 5th to Indy for #49 and a 4th

    1) Evans LB
    2a) Gesicki, TE
    2b) Chark, WR
    4) Nwsu or OO, LB
    5) White, S
    7) Hood, NT
    7) Frazier, NT

    Iím starting to get the feeling Evans wonít be around at #28 and Iím not that high on LVE. I think it will either be Reid or Alexander.

    I would rather have either over LVE myself.

    Guice is in play if Evans isn't there. We have to get a handle on our runningback issues. We can address ILB and safety in the following rounds.

    We rarely move but idk feel we may move slightly back to get the 4 we don't have.
