Default 2013 Steelers Mock Draft

Steeler Nation,

I lurk on this board all the time, but seldom post. Anyway, my father-in-law is a "Draftnik" and he has been putting out mock drafts for over a decade. I thought I would post his Steeler Mock for you and get your thoughts on his picks. Keep in mind he sees a lot of tackles going early and players sliding to the Steelers. Remember we got DeCastro last year at 24 and my father-in-law had him going in the top 11. Anything is possible...

Round 1- Pick 17 Kenny Vaccaro SS Texas
Round 2- Pick 48 Margus Hunt DE SMU
Round 3- Pick 79 Brandon Williams DT Miss Southern St
Round 4- Pick 11 Ty Powell OLB Harding
Round 5- Pick 14 Tavarres King WR Georgia
Round 6- Pick 17 Le'Veon Bell RB Mich St
Round 7- Pick 20 Joseph Fauria TE UCLA

He has pretty thick skin so feel free to be critical if you like...

I like the first 4 picks, but King seems like just another copy of the receivers we have.
you'll always have an unfavorable opinion of New York if you only focus on the pimps and the C.H.U.D.s

Bell won't last till 6 there is buzz floating around on him that he is considered by most teams to be in the top 3 running backs in the draft and some believe the best


I'm about to let you in on a little secret that is circulating through scouting circles following the NFL Scouting Combine: Michigan State's Le'Veon Bell is the best running back in the 2013 NFL Draft, and it's not even close.

Now, I know that statement certainly will cause some consternation among the legions of Eddie Lacy, Montee Ball and Giovani Bernard supporters, but there is not a more complete back in this draft than Bell. Checking in at 6-foot-1 3/8 and 230 pounds, Bell is an old-school runner with the size and strength to grind between the tackles, yet he's quick enough to get to the edge on perimeter runs. Moreover, he is a dependable workhorse capable of shouldering a heavy workload as the primary runner.

As a junior, Bell was the Michigan State offense, rushing for 1,793 yards and 12 touchdowns. He accomplished those totals on 382 rushing attempts, with seven games of at least 30 carries. Some evaluators will view the heavy workload as a concern, due to the short shelf life of running backs. But I believe the fact that Bell carried the ball extensively without incident suggests he is not only durable, but also possesses the hard-nosed mentality to be a feature back as a pro.

Bell is also a dependable receiver out of the backfield, possessing the hands and receiving skills to be an integral part of a complex passing game. Over the past two seasons, he snagged 67 receptions, showing the capacity to run basic routes from his tailback spot. Although he is not a matchup nightmare in space, the fact that he is functional as a receiver will allow an offensive coordinator to keep him on the field in every situation, preventing opponents from honing in on the running game when Bell is in the huddle.

When I broke down the game tape, I came away viewing Bell as a Steven Jackson clone. Bell not only runs with a similar gait, but he displays the patience and vision to excel in a zone-based scheme. Bell's ability to read and set up his blocks at the line of scrimmage routinely leads to big gains when plays are executed properly. Additionally, Bell displays the ability to put together a sequence of cuts beyond the line of scrimmage. From multiple jump cuts to crafty spin moves in the open field, Bell's ability to make defenders miss at his size is quite rare. With Bell more than capable of running through contact, gaining 951 yards after contact in 2012, it is not surprising he has become a favorite of scouts and coaches around the league.

I would love to have bell but looks like he goes much early.

Other things on this mock draft, although I like the hunt and the nt pick in round 2 and 3 I believe it's to much defense, we need to get playmakers on offense in rounds 2 and/or 3

If Harrison leaves I think someone like Damontre Moore instead of a safety would be more likely

If Bell slid to the 6th I would be stoked. I dont see him lasting past the 3rd though.
