Default my picks

don't see this happening but, i sure would like it

1 Jonathan Martin OT - bad pro day , he could fall

2
Kelechi Osemele OG

3
Tank Carder ILB

4
Nick Jean-Baptiste NT

5
Evan Rodriguez TE

6
Trenton Robinson FS

7
Danny Hrapmann K

7
Davin Meggett RB

7
Drew Butler P

the oline would be set for the next 4 years , giving them options on moving colon inside or cutting him next year if he doesn't get back to form.

carder could immediatley push foote for the starting job , or use him like they used timmons his rookie year in a rotation.

baptiste will be either boom or bust , but hampton isn't going any where this year , so that gives them a year to evaluate him

rodriquez at 6-3 250 , is supposedly a good receiver and blocker , so worst case scenario , he pushes johnson off the roster next year and becomes the new H back

richardson and meggett become fresh PS bodies if nothing else

the kicker and punter could push for roster spots.

Love the draft but I would like to see a receiver somewhere seeing as how next year we probably lose brown or wallace to save a dollar. Also I want a true fullback more than anything else. The forgotten position that is so much more effective in both the run and play action situations.

That's Dave Meggett's son, right? Nice pedigree. Bodes well as far as him being a hard worker.

I really believe if your not including a WR in your draft your gonna be wrong. I am positive they will be taking one with this crop of talent and the fact they only have 3 guys that are proven and one of them is injury prone.

Really this draft year has baffled me more then any other. There are so many ways this team could go and in so many different combinations. I was going to try another mock but I'll just end up with my head spinning. So I'm just gonna relax in front of the TV for 3 days and let the Steelers pick em as I munch away on some Nachos Bell Grande from Taco Bell on at least one of those days.

I like the first 4 picks. But I can't see taking a TE in the 5th. I'd rather take a WR. And I see everyone has us taking a Safety in there mocks. I just don't see it. We have mundy and will allen as backups we don't have room for one at least not this year. Maybe next year. We are going to need a Corner at some point.

tendering johnson leads me to believe that the H back is here to stay.

so when do you see a TE ? of course it's just speculation at this point but there's a good chance saunders will be released. the steelers use 3 TE sets a good bit so if they do let him go they'll need to fill that game day uni. so when would be a good round ?

Leads me to believe the Front Office doesn't like to run the ball effectively.
