Dion Jordan in the first round. He'll fall because of his shoulder surgery and at that point, it's a no-brainer. 6'6, fast and explosive off the line. Working opposite a (hopefully) in shape and healthy Woodley would fix our pass rush.

R1. Dion Jordan
R2. Robert Woods
R3. Nico Johnson
R4. Robert Lester

Until the Senior Bowl and probably after that, that's my mock for the first four rounds. I very much doubt that changes.

I like it, a very solid first 4 rounds...

As long as I can swap out Woods for Elam, I will take that draft in a heartbeat.

I like Jordan (or Mingo). Nothing against Woods, but Elam's my guy. I've liked Nico Johnson (mocked him in R4 since Sept), but he'll likely go R3 (where I have skov). And, Lester was a R1 pick, until the year... when he seemed to miss a beat; match him & up with Elam, and they can develop together.

I really like Matt Elam too, but he'll never make it to our pick in the 2nd round.

Hey man, stop being all logical & realistic.

I am for trading away a pick (or two) to move up to 28-32ish, to acquire Elam. OR Trading back from 17 to 28-32ish (and acquiring a few extra picks), to get Elam.

Like Charlie Kaufman might say, "Elam... Elam, Elam... Elam."

Eddie Lacy was a stud duck running back down in Louisiana....Trouble is he didn't have the grades so LSU, USC, Tennessee and a bunch of other schools passed on him...Nick Saban got him to commit and he "MAGICALLY PASSED" 7 classes in 6 weeks.. He was playing behind Trent Richardson last year but was injured a lot.. He's worth a 2nd or 3rd round pick...

2(48) Pittsburgh Steelers: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama

The Steelers could use a bell-cow running back for their offense; Lacy is a perfect fit.

Lacy is in the mold of recent Alabama running backs. Under head coach Nick Saban, they've been led by ball-carriers who have a combination of size, quickness and power. Lacy (6-0, 220) is more like Mark Ingram rather than Trent Richardson. However, Lacy has more elusiveness than Ingram as Lacy has a nice spin move that he uses often to breakaway from defenders.

Following his dominant performance versus Notre Dame in National Championship Game (20-140), Lacy's 2012 totals reached 1,322 yards (6.5 average) and 17 touchdowns on only 204 carries. He was the power runner for Alabama, but lost carries to standout freshman T.J. Yeldon. Lacy caught 22 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns, too. He had a massive performance against Georgia (20-181) in the SEC Championship.

Lacy was the backup in 2011 to star back Richardson. However, when the sophomore received carries, he made the most of them running for 631 yards on 84 carries with seven touchdowns.

Does anyone have an idea what the Steelers would be compensated for if they let Mendenhal & Wallace go? Would they be compensated with picks in this year's draft or in 2014?

Neither player is under contract so no compensation picks.

If a team loses a player to free agency in one year (2013), they then receive a compensatory pick the following draft (2014).

If they both leave, I'd expect a R3 for Wallace and a R5 for Spinny.
