2013 NFL Mock Draft 1.0 (Divisional Playoff Week Edition)

17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Matt Elam SS (Florida)

As I have stated on numerous occasions, the Steelers must find a way to plan for the future at both Safety positions this offseason. One player in particular I can see them targeting with the 17th overall pick is Matt Elam of Florida. Like I pointed out in a post from a month ago, Elam has the tools and skill-set to be a nice replacement for Troy Polamalu once he hangs up his cleats.

Elam is a big-hitter who is not only speedy, but can line up in a number of different areas on the Defensive side of the ball. The Strong Safety (5í10″ 202 lbs.) improved off of his solid Sophomore season (78 Tackles, 11.0 TFLís, 2.0 Sacks, 2 INTís), and racked up 76 Tackles, 11.0 TFLís, 2.0 Sacks, 1 Forced Fumble, and 4 Interceptions as Elam helped lead the Gatorsí Defense to a Sugar Bowl berth. A year or two stint behind Polamalu and under the tutelage of Defensive Backs Coach Carnell Lake could serve Elam well, and also give him time to develop into a quality Safety.

If we could pick up Elam and Rambo that would be quite the safety haul... Eddie Lacy and Nico Johnson with a WR would also be nice later on..

Elam

I was thinking that trading down and THEN drafting him at 25ish (plus, acquiring an extra pick) was the way to go... BUT... I am thinking more & more that he will go around 20ish. Thus, if the Steelers are going to take him, it might have to be at 17... which, I am not at all against.

He's been my favorite player for a year... and, admittedly, I am biased when I say to take him at 17.

IMO: he is a slightly lesser version of Polamalu and/or slightly better than Eric Weddle.

I think Elam goes to the Broncos now that they lost their season on one boneheaded play from Rahim Moore.

Elam would be a great addition. but I wonder if we can get him lower than 17. Trae down, maybe draft him and package extra picks to move and take Lacey

Denver may want him but since they are drafting mid to late 20's he may not be there. I like Elam, also like Ogeltree from Georgia. No mater who we pick I think we get a very god player to help, hopefully immediately. I see lots of vets purged this off season because of cap issues.

Would love Elam here in Pittsburgh. Think he really would be a great addition and just like Hawaii said under the wing of Troy and Carnell the next one or two seasons I really believe we have a stud there.

Do you really think they select their future by one play? I don't know how he played the whole season and if it was a weak point of them anyway. But on one play? No way.

Couldn't agree more. Would be great having those to in the secondary for a long time.

I love the way Elam plays ... but what I see is Ryan Clark... and the NFL ruining the way he plays with all these penalties ... plus he's smaller , not sure I'd want him

and I love Rambo my favorite safety in the draft ... but do you really think the Steelers will draft another questionable player?? ... I think all he did was fail a drug test , but still I don't think they take any chances on anybody that has a "bad character" this year

Just wanna ask isn't a failed drug test more on a team then the player? I mean he probably gets the prescription from the team doctors I would imagine.

Failed it for Weed ... my mistake I probably should have said that...

I think the story goes some where along the lines of, he was in Cancun or some vacation or spring break , and ate some brownies that he didn't know had Weed in them

What do we expect college kids to do on Spring break?? ... lol I mean I would give him the benefit of the doubt , but with what just happened with Rainey do you think the Steelers would?
