Default Re: Top Prospects at Positions of Need, Additional End of Season Mock

Final Pre-draft Mock! I struggled heavily with these picks because, no matter which round I picked a guy in, there was an immense amount of talent that I was leaving on the board. This really is the deepest draft I've seen in a long, long time.

Round 1.

15. DB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State Universtiy.

At the end of the day, we have yet to address CB via free agency and this makes me think that Dennard is going to be the pick. I mentioned mid-February that Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix had a chance of being that dark horse candidate at 15, but with the addition of Mike Mitchell, that takes any Safety off the board at 15th overall. We've addressed WR, FS and DL in the first round, adding quality depth and a high quality free safety in Mitchell. The only other position of immediate, pressing need for this team is CB, and Dennard fits the bill.

I struggled with leaving Mosley on the board as I am absolutely positive that he's going to be an All Pro in this league for a long, long time. With the Steelers looking at Moat, though, it seems like they're just looking for depth behind Williams and Spence at this point.

Round 2.
14. WR Martavis Bryant, Clemson.

6'5, 200 lbs. and ran a 4.35 forty. While the rumors of Roethlisberger asking the Steelers for a tall receiver turned out to be false, we do need a taller receiver for this offense. Bryant fits this billing and while he may indeed be a bit of a project initially, the sky is the limit with this kid. He has the potential to be a very good receiver in the NFL with his mixture of size and speed.

Round 3.
Compensatory Selection. (??) overall. DB Aaron Colvin, Oklahoma

He has the potential to be one of the best CBs in this draft, and if he didn't tear his ACL he was looking at a first round billing. He wouldn't need to come in and make in impact immediately, and this would give him time to rehabilitate from his injury. Put this kid in the Nickle for our defense with Dennard and Allen locking down the starting roles and our secondary is looking at a very bright future. Mitchell, Thomas, Dennard, Allen and Colvin would rival the best secondary in the NFL only a couple of years down the road. Speed, athleticism and talent is something this secondary has been missing for a long time and those five provide it in spades.

Round 4.
18. DE Anthony Johnson, Louisiana State University

Round 5.
17. DT George Uko, University of Southern California

Round 5.
Compensatory Selection. (??) overall. RB Storm Johnson, Central Florida

Round 6.
16. WR L'Damian Washington, Missouri

Round 7.
15. OT Matt Patchan, Boston College

@teegre I know, no Nix or Murphy, but I couldn't pass on Bryant and loaded up on DB talent.

Dennard: I can "deal" with that.

Bryant: I'm not a fan. He never produced, while, surrounded by Sammy Watkins & DeAndre Hopkins.

Colvin: I love the pick... but, at 97??? I think that you could get him in R5.

I'd prefer (keeping the positions the same):
1. Denanrd
2. Troy Niklas, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Davante Adams
3. Gaines, Puifoy, Mitchell

Colvin's knee is getting better. He's healing, and that is going to push him up boards. There are reports that he's back into the top 100 for teams, I just hope the Steelers is one of them.

It really has nothing to do with Colvin himself, but after the Terry Hawthorne experiment I want nothing to do with him. I know he has the greatest boom potential outside of round one, but there's just too many solid prospects out there. And the Steelers don't need another roadblock in the development of a position where they've already been hit or miss.

Yep.
High ceiling, but huge possibility of never being the same player.

R5: bring him on!!!
R3: can't miss on that high of a pick

Look at somebody like Brandon Boykin , 1st round talent , injured senior bowl 4th round, now is a good CB for philly

Colvin same thing ... He won't be there in the 5th , maybe the 4th

Colvin is perfect fit for steeler defense ... And how many 3rd picks really end up playing? ... Nobody is starting over Ike and Cortez and gay has the nickel locked down, with shamarko backing up the nickel

Colvin would be a great investment with the 3rd comp, and a move I think they should look into

Overall, I like these selections; if going DL with 3rd and 4th pick, would like to see these guys be a bit taller. Jones, McCullers, Coleman are 6'4 or above, ranked as mid level DTs.

AJ from LSU would be an OLB.
