TRADE DOWN MOCK DRAFT
 
I said I wouldn't do another mock because it gave me a headache but this came together pretty easy assuming the team trades down to the bottom of the first or early in the 2nd giving us 4 picks in the top 3 rounds.

2a Bobby Massie, OT, Ole Miss
2b Bobby Wagner, ILB, Utah State -safer pick then Kendricks in my opinion.

3a Brandon Brooks, G, Miami of Ohio alt. Amini Silatolu alt any Guard!
3b Markelle Martin, S, Oklahoma State -the range of Ed Reed, but not the hands yet.

4 Ronnie Hillman, RB, SD State -5'9" stocky, fast. alt Cyrus Gray, Robert Turbin

5 Hebron Fangupo, NT, BYU -the trendy pick and makes sense.

6 Toney Clemons WR Colorado -don't wait grab the Antonio Brown magic again.

7a George Bryan, TE, N.C. State
7b J.R. Sweezy, DE N.C. State
7c Julian Miller, OLB West Virginia -another good prospect at the position
7d Keshawn Martin WR Michigan St. -Slash type + very good return man.


My personal bias toward taking a safety early when the team has shown no indication whatsoever will probably be my downfall so here would be the top 4 picks geared more toward the Steelers immediate needs.

2a Jerrell Worthy NT -probably the safest pick for a NT in the draft.
2b Bobby Wagner ILB
3a Brandon Brooks G or best G left.
3b Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California or Jeff Allen, OT, Illinois

i would be happy with this ... but i think if they take a safety it will be the one from Mich. State ... they really liked him ...

It might be more realistic that Trenton Robinson from Michigan State would be more available to them even in the 4th round giving them a chance to maybe grab a better RB in round 3. But reading up on Robinson and Martin, Martin seems the more physical with the bigger hits, with a lot of range and academic smarts. They probably won't address safety early at all though, but I hope.
