No, he's projected as a 4-3 DE but he could develop into a Keisel-type DE at 6ft 3in & 266 lbs.

But today, my pick is Matt Elam, safety, in 1st round.

I highly doubt we would go after him then as we have much bigger needs. Right now I would say our D-line is average but still has a lot of potential.

I like Elam with a trade down.

If we are going to draft ilb, I'd much rather have teo over brown. If the steelers intend on leaving Timmons in the Mack position where the linebackers role is to cover rbs and tight ends more and play sideline to sideline ( more althetic type ) then brown will not be drafted because he would be a Mack linebacker in the steelers defense. The buck position requires the linebacker to play against the run and play near the line of scrimmage more so teo would be a better fit than brown.

But if they intend on moving Timmons over which I think a lot people want to see him blitz more and be around the line of scrimmage more than brown would be a good pick.

Steelers already had Wells for a visit and there's concerns about his knees, and Ahmad Bradshaw can't stay healthy and fumbles too much, he'd be benched within the first few weeks.

Lacy is overrated, I'd rather have Le'Veon Bell in the 3rd or 4th round.
Lattimore is a health concern, he's already had two bad injuries to both legs and even though his recovery is going well, this may be a sign that he's injury prone and not worth the risk.

I like Lacy, but I do have concerns.

Le'Veon Bell is big, fast, durable, and did a lot of damage with a horrible line in front of him. 1700 yards behind that line is impressive. I also think he is quicker and more athletic than most give him credit for.
