Default Re: NFL.com's first mock drafts. Interesting picks for Pittsburgh.

I think the Jonathon Banks pick might happen.

1. Tomlin is a DB coach who missed on Revis when Taylor was still on the team.
2. Swaggin' will be 35 next year.
3. Keenan Lewis reportedly want a 7 million / year contract despite having 1 career interception.
4. Banks is a 6'2 former safety who plays the physical style needed for the Steelers system.

I actually like the Banks pick. Mingo or Te'o would be more helpful though and from film Elam has really nice instincts.

OLB is the biggest current need. All these analysts have the Jets picking OLB... don't they desperately need a WR? When Holmes went down their leading receiver finished with 56 catches. Chargers are in the same boat. Arizona is another 3-4 team that desperately needs help on offense.

I think there will be several OLBs available.
