If we could get a Clay Matthews type, that would be awesome. Wonder if we'll trade up. We haven't done that in a while. Don't know too much about this year's class though to know whether that's smart or not tho.

In my opinion I think we need to set back and let the players fall to us. To me I don't think there is anyone that I would trade up for from where we are selecting.

It depends on who one wants.

For Te'o, the Steelers might have to trade up (although, as SteelersCanada has pointed out, he might drop to 17).

At 17, there will be a TON of OLBs. That would be my guess: staying put & hoping Te'o drops, and if not, they take the BAP at OLB.

[I also like Matt Elam, but he is not worthy of the 17th pick.]

That approach usually works. I like our drafting philosophy so I can't really gripe with how Colbert & Tomlin scout and draft talent.

There was no way in hell that DeCastro was going to drop to us last year but he did.

Steelers notebook: 8-8 record leads to 17th pick in April’s NFL Draft

By Alan Robinson
Published: Monday, December 31, 2012

The Steelers will draft 17th in the first round, the highest they‘ve selected since they chose linebacker Lawrence Timmons 15th overall in 2007. The draft order has been set for Nos. 1-20; the other 12 slots will be determined during the playoffs. The top six will be Kansas City, Jacksonville, Oakland, Philadelphia, Detroit and Cleveland. Of the 20 teams that didn‘t reach the postseason, the Steelers had the easiest strength of schedule.

• Safety Ryan Clark was released from a hospital Monday after being kept overnight for precautionary reasons with a severely bruised quadriceps. Because Clark had two concussions during the season, he posted on Twitter from the hospital that his visit wasn‘t concussion-related.

• Defensive end Brett Keisel and cornerback Keenan Lewis won‘t need surgery to repair sprained medial collateral knee ligaments, and cornerback Ike Taylor (broken foot) and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, ribs) also won‘t need an operation. Roethlisberger is a second alternate for the Pro Bowl but said he doesn‘t think he is healthy enough to play even if a slot opens up.

• Clark was impressed with how Lewis played hurt Sunday against Cleveland, even in a game with no playoff implications. “His play was a big reason why we finished No. 1 (in defense) — what he showed late in the season, being injured, we knew he was hurt but trying to go out and play,” Clark said. “That‘s what you want to see, the fact he wants to be on the field. It means a lot to us.”

• Cortez Allen, who replaced the injured Taylor as a starter in December, accounted for one-quarter of all the Steelers‘ takeaways in just the final two weeks of the season. But he‘s not ready to campaign for a starting job if Lewis leaves. “I don‘t know Keenan‘s plans, but always I go in and try to give my best effort with whatever I do and everything will fall in place,” Allen said Monday.

• Charlie Batch, the oldest quarterback to play for the Steelers, will be 39 next season — but still believes he can play and likely will seek a job for next season. The Steelers could choose to bring him back and then bring in two other younger quarterbacks for camp. One thing he‘s not yet ready to do is become an assistant coach, although some teammates believe he would be an effective quarterbacks coach.

Agree that Te'o won't fall to 17. After today, i'd take Ogletree in a minute!!!

Also, with our 2nd round drafting track record I would have no problem with them trading up using our 2nd round pick! Couldn't do much worse than we have recently! Worilds, Sweed, etc... Just a thought.

I heard their were questions about Te'o's speed. Is it enough of a concern to drop him to 17?
