I've heard rumblings of that, as well.

BUT, once he knows that I want the Steelers to draft him (possibly at 17)... well... he will obviously declare.

BUT, how about this instead: trade back from #17 & acquire an extra R2 for next year. tread down again, acquiring another R2 pick. Then, next year, trade those two "extra" R2 picks to move up for Clowney.
Two extra second round picks wouldn't be enough for moving up for Clowney even if the Steelers do tank the season.

But I can see that the Steelers pick Clowney, if Big Ben gets hurt all season.

A side note, Taylor Lewan actually held his own well against Clowney in that game. The Steelers won't pick him but I wonder if teams in front of them will. That may help the Steelers' chance of getting Te'o.

I like Mingo with the first pick. That'll give us 4 solid olb with a year learning curve under Harrison. Harrison may be in his last season with the Steelers. We'll need at least 3 solid olbs going into 14. Woodley, Woirlds and a 1st round 2013 pick.

If Mingo is gone the middle linebacker position is in question. What does Spencer possess? Footer is getting older. Its hard to pass on a talent like Ogletree. Dudes a beast.

I also like Chance Warmack. Colon had had enough and can't stay healthy.

If these players are available in the second round they should get a look. Elam, our safeties are getting old. Taylor, if we don't retain Mendenhall. Wilson, a good talent and could sure up the backup Qb position.

Steelers have like 50 Lb's, why would they draft more before developing what they already have?

what they lack and have for some time is quality depth at both Safety spots

Warmack is a strong possibility, I see colon possibly being gone because of his inability to stay healthy, and the penalties don't help

Because Carter, Sly, and Worilds have been average at best.

6'1" 265LBS...........I would want to see him in some change of direction drills. Looks like he plays downhill in the run game, but looks a bit heavy footed and could get lost by cutback runners.

Donta Hightower without the explosiveness or top end speed. He should stay in school 1 more year.

Chance Warmack is 6'3' and 320 lbs, mobile and is an absolute mauler. Can you see our OL with Adams, Warmack, Pouncey, DeCastro and Gilbert for the next 10 years?
