Re: NFL.com's first mock drafts. Interesting picks for Pittsburgh.
I like the idea of trading back, pickup a couple extra picks, and drafting Vaccaro or Elam in the first round, maybe another safety later, a DE/OLB like Buchanan from Illinois in the fourth or so, a DT like Pena from Mississippi St. in the 6th or 7th, and maybe a ILB somewhere along the way. Point is we need to get more young blood in key positions on defense so we can be solid for years. My only problem with drafting defensive players is that it takes LeBeau too long to work them into the system and they sit the bench for a year or two before they get consistent playing time. But it's still necessary to start reloading the defense.
