Post Combine Mock
1. Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
5'10 / 191 lbs
Watching the draft, I paid particular attention to the CB. Harris was great during the drills. I remember Deion Sanders picking him out as the top CB during the drills. The only thing that knocks Harris for the Steelers is his size and lack of zone coverage experience. He needs to learn zone coverage to play in Pittsburgh. If the Steelers believe that he can adjust to that, he will be the pick.
2. Marcus Cannon, OG, TCU
6'6 / 358 lbs
This is the guy I've had here. No reason to change it, since he did not fail at the combine.
3. Jerrell Powe, NT, Ole Miss
6'2 / 335 lbs
The Steelers need a suitable replacement for Casey Hampton. Powe has the size to hold up the point of attack and anchor the line. He will not be required to play immediately in Pittsburgh and can have time to develop into a great NT.
4. Bruce Miller, OLB, Central Florida
6'1 / 254 lbs
Bruce Miller was dominant at the collegiate level. In 2010 he had 13.5 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks as well as 2 interceptions for touchdowns and 2 more passes broken up. 2009 he racked up 18 tackles for a loss and 13 sacks. The reason he goes this low, is because teams don't think he is athletic enough for the NFL. Tomlin said he likes guys with tape and pedigree... here you go.
5. Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU
6'5 / 325 lbs
I've seen Barksdale's name slip lower and lower and I don't know why. It gives him more value, but I believe he can play. He is one of the most technically sound lineman in the draft and he has good size. His knock is athleticism, but I believe that he will be able to come in and be a right tackle and eventually transition to left tackle with NFL conditioning.
6. Josh Thomas, CB, Buffalo
5'10 / 191 lbs.
Thomas is a late round prospect. He was mainly a cover corner at Buffalo, but he was good at it. He had 29 passes defensed in only 24 games. His last season he came in run support for 5.5 tackles for a loss and 2 quarterback sacks.
7. Alex Henery, K, Nebraska
6'2 / 177 lbs
Just need a solid kicker that can be relied on.
