Default Re: Who to draft in 2013?

If Pittsburgh remains at 14, here are my thoughts (although, I think they win on Aubday, and in turn, will pick 17ish).

STAR LOTULELEI
If Star Lotulelei (NT, Utah) drops to 14, he is a monster. He "should" go top 5... but, the glamour positions always go higher; so, he "could" drop.

MATT ELAM
DION JORDAN
I really love Matt Elam. I've mocked him to the Steelers for six months... but, not necessarily at 14. (I was originally thinking Elam at 32.) While Elam had a great season, I think a pass-rusher makes more sense at 14. There are lots of safeties this year (lots), and even though I really like Elam, the value pick would be Dion Jordan (OLB, Oregon).

LINEMEN
Three other names:
NT John Jenkins (Georgia)
NT Jesse Williams (Alabama)
LT/LG Barrett Jones

I really like Jones, and I had replaced him in my list of most coveted player (by Elam). BUT, since The Colon can not stay healthy, since Foster is average, and since Jones CAN play both LG & LT, Jones is my dark horse once again.

SUMMATION
R1:
Star Lotulelei, NT, Utah
Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
John Jenkins, NT, Georgia
Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
Barret Jones. LG, Alabama
Matt Elam, S, Florida;

R2:
TJ McDonald, S, USC
Robert Lester, S, Alabama
Eric Reid, S, LSU
Alex Van Noy, LB, BYU

R3:
Shayne Skov, LB, Stanford

R4:
Nico Johnson, LB, Alabama
Leon McFadden, CB, SDSU
