Re: 4 round Steeler Mock
Since it's still early in the offseason, everyone I looked up past the 4th round had no projection or analysis, so i just put positions for rounds 5-7
First Round - Jarvis Moss DE Florida
With both of our starting OLB's pushing 30, and both their contracts up after this season, Jarvis Moss could become the next great Steelers LB. Also, if we do end up switching to a 4-3, He'd easily be able to put his hand down and be a DE.
Second Round - Michael Bush RB Louisville
Michael Bush falls to us in the 2nd round. After pushing for a Heisman in 2005 and breaking his leg in 2006, Bush falls to us where he can come in and be a Maurice Jones-Drew or a Laurence Maroney and spell Willie Parker.
Third Round ? Manuel Ramirez OG Texas Tech
Manuel Ramirez falls to us in the third round, due to his lack of versatility. You always read about a Center projecting to Center or Guard, or a Tackle who can play inside as well, but Ramirez only projects to a Guard in a run-first offense. Watch for this guy at the combine. Reportedly has a bench press of 550 pounds, the guy is massive and will be a workout warrior.
Fourth Round ? David Irons CB Auburn
David Irons is one of those players who will either be a great pick down the road, or a huge disappointment. His downside is his talent being inflated due to his brother?s success (Kenny Irons) and his being injury prone, with a torn ACL in 2001 and 2004. His upside is that him and Adam Carikker are considered the people who most improved their stock at the Senior Bowl.
Fifth Round ? Center
Sixth Round ? Inside Linebacker
Seventh Round - Punter
I like the first round pick. And i absolutely love the 2nd round pick. The only thing is the falcons will take him before us with booby petrino being the new coach and probably wanting one of his own guys. The 3rd and 4th round picks are solid and 5th-7th i think you have the right idea of what we need.
