View Full Version : My Own 7 Round Steeler Mock Draft

03-18-2006, 04:01 PM
1st Round - Bobby Carpenter LB Ohio State
6'2" 256 lbs.


I'm sure you've all heard of him. He's a versitile LB and a tough nose football player like the Steelers love. A Perfect Fit

2nd Round - Martin Nance WR Miami(OH)
6'4" 213 lbs.


Potentially a #1 reciever and Ben's favorite target in College, he'd be the big, deep threat at WR that we need.

3rd Round - Cedric Humes RB Virginia Tech
6'0" 227 lbs.


Big Bruiser Running Back to replace Verron and Duce if and when they leave. He's also good at catching out of the backfield, and is a versatile runner, as he could switch to FB.

4th Round - Nate Salley FS Ohio State
6'1" 216 lbs.


He's not gonna be an immediate starter, that's why we signed Ryan Clark, but give this guy a few years and he could be it. He's described as a ferocious hitter and he plays with an attitude, so he'd be a great replacement for Logan/Carter/Stuvaints and he'd contribute on ST.

4th round (comp) - Brandon Guillory DE/LB Lousiana Monroe
6'4" 250 lbs.


His name has been whispered around the draft boards as a huge sleeper in this draft. A Tweener who has alot of upside.

5th round - Bruce Gradkowski QB Toledo
6'1" 217 lbs.


Ben is gonna need someone to back him up for his career, because Batch is no spring chicken. Worse comes to worse, he can flop and we can pick up someone else, but he could even be groomed into trade material.

5th round (comp) - Steve Fifita DT Utah
5'11" 323 lbs.


Big, mean nose tackle who can come in and back up Casey once we cut Kirschke and move Hoke to DE. He doesn't have the height you'd love but he is a big strong NT who could come in and be a good relief player.

6th round - Michael Robinson QB Penn State
6'1" 226 lbs.


We all know he'd go into a slash role with us, and he'd only get better with time. Also replaces the need for a KR and PR.

7th round - Matt Lentz OG Michigan
6'6" 311 lbs.

BPA kind of pick, but we know how the Steelers love OL depth. This guy could pack on a few pounds and be a backup at every OL position, plus he is very strong and has alot of experiance in the Big 10

Well? I'd like comments. I think it's a pretty good mock draft.

I would love to get nance in the second round but i doubt he will make it that far

ohio's #1 steelers chick

good ideas, but soe seemlike they couldbe earlier pick.

Yeah, I'd love to have a draft like that, but I think several of these picks will be long gone compared to where you have them.

Brad Gradkowski threw up crazy numbers, especially accuracy-wise, throughout his career, and he's not prototypical NFL QB sized, but I still don't see him slipping this far.

I also believe we'll be getting a compensatory 3rd round pick as well.

Yea, everyone's been throwing out either a 3&4 or a 4&5, so i figured I'd go with the latter just to not get to excited.

Gradkowski could be replaced by Betts or Basenez if it came down to it, I was just going with the whole, we need a back up QB thing, and that'll be the round I think we'll take it.

I may be reaching with Nance at the 64th pick, but other than that I don't think I'm reaching. I mean, I've even seen people listing Humes as an UDFA. I know that this year's Safety class is pretty deep, so I think Salley'll be availible. Guillory is still a relative unknown, but his stock'll probably rise. The pick I really love is Fifita. I havent heard anything about him, but whenever I heard about moving Hoke to DE, I fell in love with the idea.

Another thing is, for my later round picks, I used guys that this Next Level Scouting Inc. said the Steelers were looking at. It's neat to look at. All the players I picked are on this list, except Nance.
