Backup QB (unless a viable FA can be signed)

Is Clowney from SC in the draft this year? I'd be willing to give up a lot for him. Our D is great but we lack that stud edge rusher.

I'm starting to lean toward this being our draft ...

R1. Manti Te'o / Notre Dame - ILB

- I can't believe that there's a chance we're going to be able to snag Manti Te'o. Dear god, imagine Te'o and Timmons in the middle.

R2. Giovani Bernard / North Carolina - RB
R2. Jackson Jeffcoat / Texas - ROLB
R3. Da'Rick Rogers / Tennessee Tech - WR
R5. Bacarri Rambo / Georgia - FS
R7. Quinton Dial / Alabama - DE

I realize there's two second round picks as well. I can picture the Steelers giving up a 2014 3rd & 7th, 2013 4th and 6th to acquire a second round pick from someone like St. Louis who needs all the extra picks they can muster.

Te'o...??? Even if he got past DET at #5, I just don't see him making it to 17.

You mention trading... maybe the Steelers trade up with DET. But, it'll cost a LOT... like a R2 & R4 pick.

That said, in 2011, the Steelers wanted Michael Pouncey... and were very willing to trade up for DD (after missing out the year prior).

In 2012, the Steelers (also) wanted Donta' Hightower... and might be willing to trade up for Te'o (after missing out the year prior).

Teegre, I love you man, but you're wrong here bruh! Let's look at the top 16 picks before Pittsburgh:

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...on-ended-today

All of those teams have much, much more pressing needs than Inside Linebacker. You brought up the Lions - which is a very good point - but they have to address that secondary or outside Linebacker position before they address the inside. If Jarvis Jones is on the board for them when they pick fifth - something I expect to happen - there's no way in hell they pass him up. Outside of the Lions, every other team has much more pressing needs than inside Linebacker. We're in the fortunate position of not needing to draft a quarterback or wide receiver in the first round, so we can address our defense. The teams ahead of us aren't so lucky.

Hmmm... what you are saying makes a lot of sense... and you generally make a lot of sense... and, QBs and WRs always creep upward in the draft (despite being marginal players), which would push Te'o downwards...

But, I can not (yet) wrap my head around the idea of Te'o falling to 17.

I know that weirder things have happened (AP dropped to 7; Troy dropped to 15; DD dropped to 24)... but, I just can not see him being there at 17.

Let me propose a counterpoint and/or food for thought: if those other 16 teams base their draft on BAP (as opposed to need), wouldn't Te'o be drafted in the top 10???

Isn't Bernard the highest rated rb as of now? I'd love to see him fall to us though. If a guy like Montee Ball or Bell is available in the mid rounds I think we need to take them.
