This will be my last mock draft until we start talking about next years draft. After reading through draft sites and forums, and looking up stats and #s from the combine i have the official 2008 steelers mock draft information...

1-Branden Albert-successor of Alan Faneca or Marvel Smith, can play LG or LT

2-DaJuan Morgan-FS, North Carolina

3-Frank Okam-NT, weighs 347lbs, 32x 225lbs, Texas Graduate

4-Dexter Jackson-WR-Blazing fast with many return ability and good hands

5-Dennis Dixon-QB/WR or Tyvon Branch-CB, Dennis would add versitility like senaca wallace...

6-Tommy Blake-DE or Adrian Arrington-WR Michigan, i thought adrain was better than mario manningham.

Free Agents:
-Omar Cuff, Delaware, RB, Dominated Div. II with 1900 rush yards and 39 total TDs
-Kerry Brown, Appalachian St., OG, Big athletic type of guy
-Mario Urritia, Louisvillle, WR, 6ft 6in 230lbs, kind of a guy who we could put on the practice squad for a while and develop into a TE or a WR.

Not 100% sure whether we have the 6th round pick or the 7th.

For a final draft I like the FIrst three rounds. Albert and Morgan would make a positive impact on the roster early on. Okam has loads of upside and he needs a motivator to unlock the beast inside. Okam would also help a possible move to a 4-3 look.

Not sure why we need a burner at WR from the 4th in Jackson, Arrington is more appealing in the 6th to me. Tyvon Branch is also more appealing than Jackson. He sounds like he has a load of potential.

The only hole I could see in this draft is the lack of a quality DE to push Keisel.

Dixon as the 3rd QB and a multidimensional element to the offense (like Stewart and Randle El in the past) could warranted. I like the thought here.

Good work 19ward86. I would be happy with at least 4 of those picks coming true.

I tell ya Aussie, I think that I would be happy with all that draft but I really think that there should be a DB in there somewhere. If we draft Dixon I could only hope that he turns out to be better than Saneca Wallace.

If Ryan Clark is healthy then the need becomes CB, SS then FS for my liking.

Desheas replacement needs to be found sooner rather than later and I am sure some one at SS like Zbikowski would be a major upgrade over Carter on D and special teams.

I think clarks days are about done it seems like we are preparing to find someone to replace him.

The safety class is very thin this year. Besides Kenny Phillups there arent any 1st round typeof safeties to be taken. I think a guy like Dexter Jackson could be a way for us to run the screens that we throw to the wide outs o so often. Plus now that Rossum is gone we need a guy not named Santonio Holmes to return punts and kicks consistently like Randle El. Adrian Arrington is a guy who i thought should be considered as a 4th or 3rd round pick and Marion Manningham more of a 4th or 5th round pick. He is fast...end of story, i seen him drop like 20 passes last season in the few games that i watched of the Wolverines I just hope we can fulfill our needs.
