Default Re: Steelers will select 17th in 2013 NFL Draft

Scouting is so good now usually they have those top 10+ players pegged pretty well. It certainly couldn't have hurt to be drafting 12th.

Here are the last several drafts top 12 picks

1 Andrew Luck QB Stanford Pac-12
2 Robert Griffin III QB Baylor Big 12
3 Trent Richardson RB Alabama SEC
4 Matt Kalil OT USC Pac-12
5 Justin Blackmon WR Oklahoma State Big 12
6 Morris Claiborne CB LSU SEC
7 Mark Barron S Alabama SEC
8 Ryan Tannehill QB Texas A&M Big 12
9 Luke Kuechly LB Boston College ACC
10 Stephon Gilmore CB South Carolina SEC
11 Dontari Poe DT Memphis C-USA
12 Fletcher Cox DT Miss State SEC


1 Cam Newton QB Auburn SEC
2 Von Miller LB Texas A&M Big 12
3 Marcell Dareus DE Alabama SEC
4 A. J. Green WR Georgia SEC
5 Patrick Peterson CB LSU SEC
6 Julio Jones WR Alabama SEC
7 Aldon Smith LB Missouri Big 12
8 Jake Locker QB Washington Pac-10
9 Tyron Smith OT USC Pac-10
10 Blaine Gabbert QB Missouri Big 12
11 J. J. Watt DE Wisconsin Big Ten
12 Christian Ponder QB Florida State ACC


1 Sam Bradford QB Oklahoma Big 12
2 Ndamukong Suh DT Nebraska Big 12
3 Gerald McCoy DT Oklahoma Big 12
4 Trent Williams OT Oklahoma Big 12
5 Eric Berry S Tennessee SEC
6 Russell Okung OT Oklahoma State Big 12
7 Joe Haden CB Florida SEC
8 Rolando McClain LB Alabama SEC
9 C. J. Spiller RB Clemson ACC
10 Tyson Alualu DT California Pac-10
11 Anthony Davis OT Rutgers Big East
12 Ryan Mathews RB Fresno State WAC

Perhaps more importantly are some of the players that go between 12 and 17. In the past three years we have guys like:

S Earl Thomas
DL Jason Pierre Paul
G Mike Iupati
G Mike Pouncey
OT Nate Solder
OLB Ryan Kerrigan
DE OLB Robet Quinn
WR Michael Floyd
DT Michael Brockers
OLB DE Bruce Irvin
DE Quinton Coples
CB Dre Kirkpatrick

Notables after pick 17 the last 3 years I found to have proven themselves remains slim and really only 2010 is where I find these names

C Maurkice Pouncey
WR Dez Bryant
WR Demaryius Thomas
CB Devon McCorty
TE Jermaine Gresham
