That's what SteelersCanada & I were saying: trade down this year, in order to get more picks, to trade up for Clowney next year.

Default Re: Who to draft in 2013?

I just read a Steelers mock draft on drafttek.com. It has NO linebackers being drafted, but it has two players that I love (Elam) and/or have discussed ad nauseum (McFadden), plus one player that I really like (Warmack), and another player that other people have mentioned (Lacy).

R1: Chance Warmack, LG, Alabama
R2: Matt Elam, SS, Florida
R3: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabsma
R4: Leon McFadden, CB, SDSU
R5: DJ Swearinger, FS, South Carolina

Again, there are NO linebackers... but, if I could get Elam in R2... well... I would indeed make that trade (no LBs in exchange for Elam).

REALISTICALLY SPEAKING
While I think that Elam goes in R1, the Browns & Saints both lost draft picks in R2, and thus, the Steelers hold the fifteenth pick in that round (47). So, it's not too much if a stretch to think they it "could" happen.

If I'm going to be hypothetical & greedy, I say:
R1 Manti Te'o, ILB
R2 Matt Elam, SS
R3 on... I don't care.

We can potentially trade down from 17 to 22-ish and pick up second/third, and then trade out of the second round completely for 2014 picks. So, potentially, we could end up like this:

2014: 1 first round, 3 second rounds, 1 third, etc. and then trade up using the first round and all 3 second rounds to snag Jadeveon.

I realize that's worded in the worst possible fashion possible, but I hope you get it! I like that idea. A lot.
I see what you're saying (although, we both know that outside of New England, this many trades never occur). Here's what I'm thinking.

1. I want Matt Elam.
1-a. The 17th pick might be too high for him.

2. Trade back to 24-26ish (for someone's R3 pick & their next year's R2 pick).
2-a. Draft Elam at 24-26.

3. Trade this year's R2 pick for someone's R3 this year & their R3 next year.
3-a. No R2 pick this year.
3-b. Two R3 picks this year.

3-c. Two R2 picks next year.
3-d. Two R3 picks next year.


THIS YEAR
26. Elam, SS
R3. Shayne Skov, LB, Stanford
R3. Nico Johnson, LB, Alabama

NEXT YEAR
32. (traded, to move up for Clowney)
R2 (traded, to move up for Clowney)
R2 (traded, to move up for Clowney)
R3 ???
R3 ???

I really don't know if 2 2nd round picks would be enough to move into the top 3, where I would expect Clowney to be drafted. Unless we suck next season again and have a top ten pick.

Stop crushing my delusions.

Draft outlook

Despite their record, the Steelers don't have a ton of needs. Adding depth on defense could be a priority, especially with Taylor, Polamalu, and safety Ryan Clark all in their 30s. Inside linebacker Larry Foote is also long in the tooth but he's fared well as James Farrior's replacement. Plus, youngsters Stevenson Sylvester and Sean Spence are already on the roster.

NFLDraftScout.com's Rob Rang has the Steelers taking defensive tackle Jesse Williams (Alabama) with the 17th pick, while Dane Brugler likes cornerback Johnathan Banks (Mississippi State).

I would like the Steelers to address OLB, ILB, S in the first 3 rounds (in no particular order). Then TE, RB, CB and WR in the later rounds (again in no particular order).
