While I love Elam, I honestly have to admit that it's probably going to be Vaccaro, which is fine by me (Vaccaro is my "1-a").

I've been saying to draft Lattimore for a while now... but, I think that he lasts until R4. (Most people are projecting him to go in R5.)

Regardless, it is a risky move, but one that could pay HUGE dividends.

to be fair, mendenhall was expected to go earlier and was considered a steal where we picked him (at the time)

not sure if tomlin really wanted him or we just took BPA. based on mendy's athletic ability, he always had the potential to be a game breaker. and call me crazy but i still think he can be that guy. he should be fully healed from his ACL injury by now, and in haley's system, i think he can be a star

If his self esteem is that low, I would prefer another QB. Who cares what he thinks? That's part of this team's problem; #7 thinks the game is always about him, too arrogant. I really don't think there is a true #1 QB in this draft anyway. But if the kid from West Virginia or the one from USC slips to #17, you have to consider it.

Mendy is what Trent Richardson is going to be. Big, fast, versatile, etc. Only thing is, Richardson has the mind set to be a great football player. Mendy is too busy twittering about World issues.

I'd pick a WR in the 3rd... Preferably Da'Rick Rogers...
Then a RB like Montee Ball in the 2nd...
Swearinger in the 4th
and an OLB/DE in the 1st... We need a pass rusher more than anything...

I'm skeptical on Patterson, although he has the skill set to play WR and he appears to be a playmaker (Something the Steelers desperately needs at the WR position), the guys drops way too many passes, he showboats too much as well. If he is still there in the 2nd, I would think hard about taking him though. No way is he a 1st round selection.

Vaccaro - Probably a little high on taking a Safety at #17 as well; but I've seen this guy play, he reminds me a lot of Carnell Lake. He's fearsome! He can also play a little corner if needed.

HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
Nope- I don't like it, we need to get a running back and work on our O line, it would be a huge boost to our offense. We ranked 17th with 20.6 PPG, which was actually a little more than 2011, but we really struggled to score 20 points against anyone near the end of the season. id really like to see us putting up 25+ ppg and I think that can be accomplished if we make our offense more 2 dimensional and actually have a running game.

I agree with the rb part but not in first or second and disagree with the oline part. During athree game stretch when we had starkd foster pouncey colon and adams we had three games of which we ran more than 125 yards maybe more. Then adams went down so did colon. Our online should be very good when healthy. Now free agency hadnt happenef so we dont know whos staying and whos going but we can assume that foster will be likely to stay so we have gilbert foster pouncey dd adams which would make a solid line. Just need depth so rounds5 and on.

you take vaccaro if he's there at 17, there's no running backs that are 1st round talent. plenty options at rd. 2-4. hell the top pick at rb (lacy) might not even go until the 2nd round.

though if chance warmack is there at 17 that might also be hard to pass up, that would all but guarantee we have all the cogs in place at OL until the next decade
