    2. C Josh Meyers - A solid center prospect, big and strong. Pouncey is done for and likely retired.
    3. RB Javonte Williams - Impressive all around ability, with speed. Conner should not be starting for us. Watch his highlight clips, there is a lot to like
    4a. OT Trey Smith - We need tackles. Only Chucks is signed.
    4b. OT Cole Van Lanen - We need tackles
    6a. OG Tommy Kraemer - Faneca didn't play well last year and I was not impressed with Dotson Run blocking
    6b. CB Jack Jones - This smallish CB makes lots of plays. Great for the slot, and Hilton should be a semi hot free agent meaning he's likely leaving.
    7a. DL/NT Lorenzo Neal - Our lack of run defense would really be exposited if teams ran the ball more often.
    7b. S Donavan Stiner. Depth is a need here, and Edmunds a free agent.
    Don't know about players but hitting on a QB would be awesome. Not my preference, but if they feel like whoever is there has a legit shot, maybe they have to.

    In Colbert we trust, but not when it comes to drafting QBs and DBs unfortunately.

    sorry if this has already been posted, having trouble keeping up with all these mocks:


    2021 NFL Mock Draft: Steelers, Panthers trade up for QBs as five go off the board in first 10 picks
    The first four picks are quarterbacks as Mac Jones makes his way up draft boards

    This is Mock Draft Version 20, if you're keeping track, but it's the first one to include trades. So let's get crazy. The first four picks are all quarterbacks, the Panthers trade up from No. 8 to No. 3 to grab Justin Fields, and the Falcons land Mac Jones a selection later.

    Meanwhile, the Steelers, who traded up to the 10th spot in 2019 for linebacker Devin Bush, trade up to No. 10 again, this time for quarterback Trey Lance, who can sit for a year behind Ben Roethlisberger before taking over the job in 2022.

    In case you're wondering -- and we're guessing you are -- here are the mock draft trades for the teams involved:

    - Panthers get No. 3 pick, Dolphins get picks 8, 39, 104.
    - Steelers get No. 10 pick, Cowboys get picks 24, 55, and 2022 first rounder

    PROJECTED TEAM
    Pittsburgh
    PROSPECT RNK
    12th
    POSITION RNK
    4th
    Two years ago, the Steelers traded up to No. 10 for Devin Bush. This time they're looking a franchise QB to replace Big Ben, who appears likely to return for '21. Lance is short on experience, but long on everything else NFL QBs are evolving into.

    DBs I agree with.

    But think we've been drafting for backup QB for a while. Actually looking for a starter might be different.

    Mason supposedly having a first round grade worries me.

    I put no stock in press conferences.

    This seems like exactly the thing you'd say publicly to raise a guy's spirits after he slid down the draft.

    Mason was drafted as a potential break glass in case Ben actually retires instead of just threatening move.

    I think it was a mistake (and said it at the time). And that we should have been laser focused on putting the best team we could around Ben.

    Javonte Williams and Trey Smith will be long gone by our 3rd and 4th. On the 6a Tommy Kraemer pick, Alan Faneca?? It's been way more than a year since he played well.
    2021 Draft Trade 1/24, 6/192, 6c, 7/210, 7/219 and 2022 4th to the Jets for 2/34, 3/66, 5/132

    2/34-Teven Jenkins-OT-Ok St.
    2/55-Creed Humphrey-C-OU
    3/66-Joe Tryon-OLB-Wash.
    3/88-Rhamondre Stevenson-RB-OU
    4/119-Alaric Jackson-OL-Iowa

    Looking at Rudolph's numbers last season vs J Allen's first season, Rudolph beat him in almost every measurable category. He might not be that far off from a 1st rounder. He hasn't had much of a chance to at least show he can improve but the CLE game gives some hope.

    I agree. The fantasy Football crowd want too much too soon. I've said all along that MR could be a Derek Carr-like starter
