If most of the names on that list are hovering mid 2nd by all means trade up. Teams were trading up in the first round for 4th round picks.

If most of the names on that list are hovering mid 2nd by all means trade up. Teams were trading up in the first round for 4th round picks.that doesnt mean we will be able to move up for less than a 4th (i suspect a team or 2 may even give up 3rds to move higher).

supply and demand. many of the players ranked 15-45 all have virtually the same grades.

i think when all teams go home tonight and reset their draftboards there are gonna be a ton of teams wishing to move up. demand will increase and so will the price.

if we're lookin to move, it very well could be a sellers market.

Trade up to the top of the board and grab Klonz or Glenn. It's worth it and then the line is set and so is the O. For a very long time.

Dig for talent in rounds 4 and on to complement the studs and developing stars on D.

I think we're going to see DeCastro starting at Right Guard initially but then sliding over to the left side once he's comfortable with our offense. He just got too many physical and intellectual tools to not take over at LG down the stretch. Gilbert-DeCastro-Pouncey will be one hell of a left side for many years to come -- now if we could get a real right tackle and put Colon at RG, then Foster and Legursky are decent enough backups (where they belong)... well, one can dream.

So give me Ta'amu in the second round. Our defensive front line Hood-Ta'amu-Heyward? Yes please! :jammin:

If we manage to pull that off, we could spend the entire rest of the draft on Defensive Backs and I'd still be pleased.

Patriots?

(not that i care) but, What's the deal with Cleveland trading a million picks to move up one spot just to grab a RB? Did they expect Minnesota to find a replacement for Peterson or something? They couldn't just wait and save their picks??

Lol they are absolutely retarted in Cleveland. The only team in front of them that didn't already make their pick known was Minnesota, who has Adrian Peterson. I mean, wtf were they thinking? There options were OBVIOUS, either get Richardson at #5 or give up a whole lot to draft him 10 minutes sooner...it's actually comical.

Definitely want to address NT, and we could always beef up at CB.

But honestly, we still have an OL deficit - too many years of neglect. Even with this wonderful first round pick, it's still a weakness. With a QB entering the second half of his career, we need to make the OL into a strength. Of course, we've already upgraded the OC.

We always want LBs, but I think we can live for awhile with our current LB corps. We can't live with Ben on his back four times each game.

We don't need a RB; we have more than enough there right now (without Mendenhall). We need a line that will make any RB look good.

The top 10 draft prospects available after round one

Posted by Evan Silva on April 27, 2012


Thursday’s first round included quite a few surprises. New 49ers receiver A.J. Jenkins, Seahawks pass rusher Bruce Irvin, Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden, and even Giants running back David Wilson and Vikings safety Harrison Smith were not commonly “mocked” in the top 32.

The St. Louis Rams and Indianapolis Colts will kick off the second round Friday at Nos. 33 and 34, respectively. Here’s a look at the top-ten players left available to them.

1. North Alabama cornerback Janoris Jenkins — Jenkins would have been a top-15 pick if not for severe off-the-field baggage, and he will likely go off the board early in round two. A shutdown corner in the SEC before “transferring” to Division II, Jenkins goes 5-foot-10, 193 and runs a 4.47. He is a playmaker on the ball, can cover outside and in the slot, and is a homerun threat on punt returns. The aforementioned Rams and Colts both visited with Jenkins before the draft.

2. LSU receiver Rueben Randle — Randle has prototype size at 6-foot-3, 212, and ran in the 4.3s at his Pro Day. While his production was limited in LSU’s run-first, passing-unfriendly offense, Randle was still voted first-team All-SEC by the conference’s coaches last season. Randle is a game breaker, averaging nearly 17 yards per career reception. Randle may be the favorite to be the 33rd pick after St. Louis was leapfrogged by Jacksonville for Justin Blackmon on Thursday night.

3. Stanford tight end Coby Fleener — 6-foot-6, 250-pound humans don’t often run in the 4.4s, but Fleener can and he will be a coveted prospect early on day two. Andrew Luck’s college go-to guy could be reunited with this year’s top pick if Indianapolis tabs Fleener to replace Jacob Tamme and Dallas Clark at No. 34. What Fleener lacks as a blocker he can make up for as a mismatch down the seam. He scored ten touchdowns last season, and averaged 19.6 yards per catch.

4. Alabama defensive end Courtney Upshaw — NFL teams soured on Upshaw because he lacks an elite pass-rushing “get off,” but he possesses a non-stop motor and shouldn’t get into the 40s on Friday. Upshaw paced the NCAA’s best defense last season in sacks, tackles for a loss, quarterback hurries, and forced fumbles. While he is a bit of a ‘tweener, Upshaw has a place in the league as an edge-setting run defender on early downs who will rush relentlessly at end in the nickel.

5. Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn — Glenn lacks ideal pass-blocking technique as a “waist bender” at left tackle, but he should have a home at right tackle or guard in the NFL. Glenn moves incredibly well for 6-foot-6, 345-pound behemoth. A 50-game starter and 2011 first-team All-SEC pick, Glenn could join Randle on St. Louis’ radar at No. 33.

6. Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still — NFL scouts have openly questioned Still’s motor, and early-career medical flags may have added to teams’ concerns. But Still is a dominant defender when he’s on his game, and he was recognized for his performance with 2011 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year honors. Still seems likely to be drafted in the 30s.

7. Midwestern State guard Amini Silatolu — Google for cutups of Silatolu’s 2011 games, and you’ll see a small-school lineman who ragdolled his competition. Teams are concerned about Silatolu’s intelligence and ability to transition from low-level tackle to NFL guard, but he plays the game like 49ers guard Mike Iupati, and figures to be a high pick on Friday.

8. Stanford offensive tackle Jonathan Martin — Martin is a bit on the soft side for a right tackle, and he’s not quite athletic enough to dominate on the left. But there’s still plenty to like about a 6-foot-5, 312-pound prospect with 34-inch arms and 37 quality starts on Luck’s blind side. Martin was a second-team All American last season. He played in a pro-style offensive system at Stanford, and should have no trouble finding a home in the early to middle portion of round two.

9. Wisconsin guard/center Peter Konz — Konz had too many medical and strength questions for a team to deem him worthy of a first-day selection, but plenty of late first-round teams were high on him and Konz figures to be snatched up pretty quickly on Friday. Baltimore, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Tennessee all showed interest in Konz before the draft.

10. Georgia cornerback Brandon Boykin — Boykin’s stock took a hit when he fractured a leg bone in the Senior Bowl game, but he is a very, very good prospect. He earned the 2011 Paul Hornung Award as the nation’s most versatile player, covering the slot in coach Mark Richt’s pro-style scheme and scoring touchdowns both on offense and special teams. In his career, Boykin had five touchdowns as a return specialist, and he covers like Antoine Winfield on defense.

More strong prospects left on the board: Georgia Tech receiver Stephen Hill, Washington defensive tackle Alameda Ta’amu, Marshall defensive end Vinny Curry, Clemson defensive end Andre Branch, Montana defensive back Trumaine Johnson, Michigan State defensive tackle Jerel Worthy, South Carolina receiver Alshon Jeffery, Virginia Tech cornerback Jayron Hosley, Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams, UConn defensive tackle Kendall Reyes.

I know you guys want Alameda but read this about DeCastro:

as the right guard flattened All-Pac 12 defensive tackle Alameda Te’Amu on a 45-yard reverse for a score by receiver Chris Owusu. It also marked the first time that Te’Amu was held to no statistics in a game (spanning 39 contests).

I'm hoping two things take place:

2. Jerrel Worthy - NT in the 2nd

Clevelands is sill, but the move with the Vikings was likely because Tampa was also in the play for richardson and they had to move there or tampa would have (or some one else).
That move wasn't to bad, but the drafting of Weeden at 22 was downright foolish, they could have gotten him in the second. Let us have decastro.

I'm not against your thought on a Wallace trade for two #2's. Even though I think Wallace will eventually report, I think he just signs for the year and then moves on. Get something for him now if that's the case.

Mychal Kendricks is looking real good this round.

Kelechi Osemele was often predicted to the team here as well and he could play RT or G.

If we really like Jonathan Martin, Mike Adams, or Cordy Glenn and they fall, could be a good trade up. Martin and Decastro together again in Pittsburgh?

I think we could get Chapman in the 3rd coming off his injury.

And please forget about Mike Martin. His weaknesses are very detrimental to him playing the NT position.
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1630985/mike-martin

A Safety or Running Back in round 3 is not out of the question.


Can't wait.

Kingmagyar
04-27-2012, 10:18 AM
I think the Steelers think of Mychal Kendricks as a young James Farrior.

I still get impressed seeing Kendrick's speed sideline to sideline. He comes with a wallop too. He would just have to get stronger at taking on O-lineman the same way a lot of undersized guys have done including Farrior and Foote. He already has that crafty way of slipping blocks and his speed will have him closing fast on QBs.

Steelerfreak58
04-27-2012, 10:25 AM
I want another OL. Martin from stanford would be fine thank you.

I agree one more OL would be awesome. The defense has proven itself year in and year out and I really think we still have depth there. Sylvester and Foote will fill Farriors spot this year and our young CBs can hold it together for a year.

The OL has been an issue the last few years, injuries and instability has been something BB and the running game have had to deal with. Addressing the OL with quality picks will set this team up for years to come if they stay healthy.

Steelersfan87

Am I the only person that would be annoyed if the Steelers took a running back before round 4 at the earliest? I just do not see this as an area that needs to be addressed with a higher pick, nor so I think a RB would be the unquestioned BPA in rounds 2 or 3 when there are so many other options at more valuable positions (both in terms of position and team need). A lot of people are projecting Isiah Pead in round 3, and I'm hoping I don't see this.

We knew we we're loaded with talent at RB before Mendy was injured, and I for one know that talent hasn't went anywhere. It isn't a concern to me, and I think we should hold off on drafting a running back until the 5th at the earliest. Build up the O-Line and line backing core, maybe a defensive back.

in the 3rd round we could move up eleven spots from #86 to #75.

We all know not every draft pick works out, but so far I like the Steelers strategy. They're plugging holes and finding GREAT value.

There is clear method in their drafting.

With a re-vamped OL, (and with Mendy hurt and probably halfway out the door) it would be nice to see a RB added.

It's likely, almost certain, that Wallace will be gone after this year and a return to more 'run-first' strategy may be in order. That, or BB will need more time to go through his progressions.

Either way, the OL picks are a huge plus and should allow the Steelers to open things up.
