I like this draft, Jimmy Smith would be a good pick, I like the Hynoski pick as well (and Im not even a Pitt fan)

Also refreshing to see a draft where we DONT take Mike Pouncey...those are starting to get old

What do you guys think the odds are that Pouncey will still be there at pick 31? I know he's not our first round selection in this mock draft, but it seems like he's the overwhelming favorite among most people when asked who the Steelers should take in the first round. If he's gone, I wouldn't mind using the first pick on a CB.

Also, I like the idea of drafting a kicker. I was going to suggest this in a separate thread. Suisham looked good when we first signed him, but he doesn't have a great track record, and he struggled a bit in the postseason. It would be nice to bring a young leg to the team, hopefully to stay here for many years to come.

I think Hynoski just sounds like a Steeler!

2%. he is the top rated guard and will never make it past the pats or falcons

Hmm, the thought of having two talented young brothers comprising 2/5 of our offensive line for years to come is very enticing.

Do you think Pouncey is worth trading up for? And if so, which current Steelers player could net us a higher first round pick?

I think Pouncey is worth trading up for, but not worth giving up our other first rounder, we need first/early second round CB talent more but if we could get a pick in the 20's without giving up the 31st pick I'd be all for it. I'd sacrifice our 2nd and 3rd rounders if we could get Pouncey and a top 5 rated CB but IDK if that would be enough to trade up, there's nobody we can really afford to trade to get a pick like that either if we still want to make a run next year.

If we miss on Pouncey, what do you think about Stefen Wisniewski out of Penn State?

He's the top center prospect in the draft but could probably make a switch over to one of the other positions on the O-Line.

His uncle, Steve, was quite a lineman when he played in the league.

Personally, Im not even a Penn State fan but I honestly think Wisniewski is a better guard than Pouncey, Pouncey gets more recognition for playing for a better team and having a star of a brother but I've seen them both play and I honestly think (Mike) Pouncey is being a tad overrated by just about everybody because of his brother. I would not be upset with Wisniewski at all, but again, I would only want to take him if he were there in the second or if we had another early pick to get a CB with.

Jimmy Smith would be good. It'd be great if Brandon Harris was available at 31, though.

wujciak better find himself some 40 speed to get drafted by the 5th rd.

You know I got a little homer in me! But Potsie isn't the fastest guy in the world either!

I like the second pick.

Most people are saying corner is our biggest need, but I would have to disagree. I think it's NT. For the immediate future we need a CB more than a NT, but the Steelers build for longevity. They don't draft players to start the very next season.

This season, the secondary might not have been our strongest unit, but we have decent depth, and they're all younger than 30 (corners anyway) . I know everybody likes to hate on Gay and McFadden, but they aren't as bad as everybody makes them out to be. Ike Taylor being as good as he is makes them look worse.

Anyway, we can get by with who have for a few seasons.

At nose tackle we have no viable option after the Big Snack, and he'll be 34 next season. It's imperative that we get somebody to replace him pronto.

IMO, Marvin Austin is a beast.
