    3 players I want. 3 players I don't ILB edition

    I have done this from time to time over the years and thought I would do this with a handful of positions that are of need for the Steelers. Players will be of various talent levels, but most will be rounds 1-3 talent. Lets look at ILB

    Players I want

    Devin White-ILB-LSU- no brainer here. The number 1 ILB in the class and a player who is firmly in the mix for a trade up. Phenomenal athlete who is a 3 down NFL LB. Sideline to sideline player who seems to always find his way to the ball. Still learning to trust his instincts and diagnose plays better but is the premier ILB in 2019. NFL Comp= Jerod Mayo

    Devin Bush-ILB-Michigan- again, a player most here are very familiar with, stellar college production and excellent over all athlete. NFL pedigree from father. Trusts his eyes, sees it and goes. Is a deceptive blitzer. Can get swallowed up by bigger NFL lineman. NFL Comp=London Fletcher

    TJ Edwards-ILB-Wisconsin- TJ is a player that will come off the board probably in late round 4. Limited athlete but is a production machine. Great instincts and is always around the ball. Very good against the run and in zone coverage. NFL Comp=Zach Brown

    Players I don't want

    Mack Wilson-ILB-Alabama- average production in a stacked defense, disappears on film, runs too hot and cold, rarely sees it and goes, takes too long to diagnose play NFL Comp= Quincy Black

    Te'von Coney-ILB-Notre Dame- good downhill 2 down LB. Active hands and a plus in the run game. Limited in coverage. Should be a special teams mainstay. NFL Comp= Christian Jones

    Dakota Allen-ILB -TT- great kid, good work ethic, extremeley coachable, team captain. Instincts are lacking. Tackling is too inconsistent. Get swallowed up by blockers NFL Comp-Vincent Rey

    Germaine Pratt-ILB-NC St- plays quick and with burst. Versatile enough to play multiple schemes and positions. Likes to hit but can also tackle. Plays too high and lacks experience. Very raw. NFL Comp= Tahir Whitehead

    I like Pratt. But he wwill be a project.

    I've grown a little cold on Bush. I think he will be a solid NFL ILB but I don't see special. Mack, the more games I watch on him, the more I'm agreeing with your assessment. Been doing my homework this afternoon, and I see the issues you bring up.

    have been wondering about the OL, do you think the Steelers feel comfortable with either Feiler or Okorafor starting at RT or might they spend a high draft choice on the position?
