Trade #17 pick & get 4 EXTRA picks...
 
I think the bet thing the Steelers could do during this draft, would be to trade the #17 pick to some one like the Vikings at #23, and get a 3rd and 4th round pick as well. Then trade the #23 pick to someone like the Jets, for a 2nd, 3rd, and 5th (or draft picks commentate with the team and their picks)...

It would give us approx 4 EXTRA picks, in the 2nd thru the 5th rounds, where we could find very good depth for the future. I think with (for sake of argument), in total... Two 2nd round picks, Three 3rd round picks, two 4th round picks, and two 5th round picks... you could draft the best available:

2 LB's
2 WR's
1 RB
1 Safety
1 DT or DE
1 TE
1 OL

And then if they're still around, take a chance on some players like Marcus Lattimore, and M. Mautui in the 6th round... They've battled injury, but if they could ever get healthy, could be good... but not worth the risk until the 6th round IMHO.

This approach could get the Steelers GREAT depth pretty quickly (if the Steelers do their homework and draft well)...

I think every team will have the idea of moving back in this draft with it's depth. I don't know who a team would target at 17 to make it with it to them to trade with us.

Some one like the falcons I could see/been rumored to want to.

Vikings if Austin is still around I could see them moving up or even for Patterson.

Then depending on what the bills do they might want to jump back in th first later on to select either smith or nassib.

I just get the feeling that someone will trade up to 17 for a skilled position thn someone will trade bck into the first between 25-32 for one of the qbs.

There's been a lot of talk around the Pittsburgh media about trading down which I would like depending on who's still available of course but I feel like we could get some solid guys with an extra 2nd 3nd and 4th.

If they managed to get Elam,woods,bell, and one linebacker I would prefer Greene or Moore with 2trade downs I'd be a happy man. Or even 1 trade down and get eifert and others.

Your pick values are all screwed up. Wishful thinking. The 17th pick isn't Herschel Walker.

theres probably 20 teams this year that want to trade back and stockpile picks. its not like we will be the only team willing to listen

Only teams wanting to trade back into the first with picks spare already are going to offer any value trading down and there will be plenty around us interested in hearing offers - Miami might be interested in trading back into the first, so might The Jets, but I doubt it. This is a draft with lots of serviceable players and few stand-outs, that means I doubt there's much activity trade-wise in round 1. Once you get beyond that, value becomes an issue.

I respectfully disagree.

At 17 this year we should get a very good player. we should take the opportunity.

After the 1st round, I'm all in for a good deal

Agreed - we'll be able to get a quality player at 17 at a position of need, whether it's an OG, TE, S, OLB, ILB, CB, even DL. But after that, stockpiling would be fine if we could get a good deal. There will be plenty of quality WRs in round 3, and quality RBs in round 5. But it's gotta be a good deal, because we have plenty of big needs before the so-called skill positions.

"Should" is the operative word.

But, if the guy (or one of the guys) that the Steelers want is gone, do not be surprised if they trade back.
