Default Re: Kirwan mock 5.0

kirwan does 2nd round in his latest mock. heres a name i dont think ive heard associated with the steelers...

There are only six active quarterbacks with a Super Bowl ring. Right after that group of elite quarterbacks sits Donovan McNabb, who is now a Washington Redskin … for less than a first-round pick!

Here are the ripple effects the McNabb trade might have on the draft:

The Eagles could easily select USC safety Taylor Mays in the first round and then -- with two second-round picks -- they can get Penn State linebacker Navorro Bowman and a longshot defensive end, Austen Lane from Murray State.

Jimmy Clausen falls in the draft. There may be a landing spot at No. 9 (Buffalo), but if he does not get selected there he could start to slide like Aaron Rodgers did in 2005.

The Redskins may move out of the No. 4 spot to acquire a second-round pick to make up for the one they lost in the McNabb trade.

If the Redskins stay put, they most likely would love one of the offensive tackles; Anthony Davis has to be considered

The Eagles have five of the top 87 draft selections totaling 1,815 trade points -- which means they could move all over this draft or stay put and fill the roster with all kinds of talent.

The biggest effect of the trade may be on Oakland at No. 8, Buffalo at No. 9, and Denver No. 11. Those teams need to reevaluate personnel and ready their draft boards.

Here's my latest mock draft, which has 12 changes in the first round and includes the second round choice based on what the team did in the first round.
18. Pittsburgh Steelers
Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
The Steelers need a starting corner and Wilson's return skills come in handy. With the Bengals and Ravens beefing up their passing attacks Pittsburgh has to improve in coverage. (Previous pick: Wilson; second round: John Asamoah, G/C, Illinois)
