To Steelers

2nd Round Pick
2014 7th Round Pick

I'd do that deal in a heartbeat.
With the rise of John Cyprien (he is now mocked by most in the 25-30 range), Elam could slip into R2... although, I see him in San Fran. Even if he gets into R2, I do not see him getting past the Bengals at 37.

Side-note: I am not a big fan of McDonald. He's not bad, but there are simply other safeties I'd take in R2. That said, if McDonald was there in R4, I'd take him. (Make sense?)
