IF a trade occurs, what about trading with San Diego? Since they are the most likely team to snag Te'o... why not take them out of the equation (by making them move downward via a trade).

I;m not sold on trading up (I say risk it & draft an OLB if he's gone)... but... if Te'o is the target, then SD would be a logical trade partner.
I agree I do not want to trade up in this draft.

I suggest if anyone has any doubts on Barkevious Mingo, they turn on this Chick-Fil-A bowl and watch him. Holy shit, this dude is going to be for real.

And, Malliciah Goodman is someone to watch out for as well. He's a DE for the Clemson Tigers and would play 3-4 DE for us. He's explosive and quick with good feet and strong arms. He's also working through double teams right now and still getting to the QB. 2 sacks in the first quarter isn't bad.

The only doubts on mingo is his strength and if he will be able to hold his own against nfl lineman. No question he is fast and explosive but he needs to bulk up. I believe he only had 5.5 sacks this season and for a first rounder that's very low

You want us to draft another DE in the first round? Even if Hood and Heyward were busts (they're not) it's far from an area of need.

whatever our draft looks like next year, we will basically have an additional 1st and 3rd next year as neither DeCastro or Spence got any real time as rookies.
I think Spence will solidify our pass D to help shut down TE's and RB's in the passing game. In the more specialized NFL, I think he'll be valuable.
I think we all think and hope DeCastro will be the next Faneca. I think Troy's replacement is a priority. I'd take a RB somewhere, but not early. Other than that, BPA as usual.

Does anyone know the compensatory picks the Steelers would get if and when Mike Wallace and Mendenhall sign elsewhere. I'm assuming there would be at least one third rounder in there plus something else. Two 3's maybe would be awesome.

Not sure how it all works but we could get quite a few picks actually with guys like Starks, Hampton, or any more of the 17 Unrestricted Free Agents we have signing elsewhere.

However does it even apply to the 2013 draft? or is it the one after that?

You have to throw Adams in there as well he was injured a lot this year as well.

This explains the process.

Compensatory picks
In addition to the 32 selections in each of the seven rounds, a total of 32 compensatory picks are awarded to teams that have lost more or better compensatory free agents than they signed in the previous year.[58] Teams that gain and lose the same number of players but lose higher-valued players than they gain also can be awarded a pick, but only in the seventh round, after the other compensatory picks. Compensatory picks cannot be traded, and the placement of the picks is determined by a proprietary formula based on the player's salary, playing time, and postseason honors with his new team, with salary being the primary factor. So, for example, a team that lost a linebacker who signed for $2.5 million per year in free agency might get a sixth-round compensatory pick, while a team that lost a wide receiver who signed for $5 million per year might receive a fourth-round pick. awarded at the ends of Rounds 3 through 7
If fewer than 32 such picks are awarded, the remaining picks are awarded in the order in which teams would pick in a hypothetical eighth round of the draft (These are known as "supplemental compensatory selections").
Compensatory picks are awarded each year at the NFL annual meeting which is held at the end of March; typically, about three or four weeks before the draft.

Am I the only one who wants to draft a HB in the 1st round?!
