Williams or Pouncey in the 1st if they are available. I don't think either will be. We may be able to garner extras picks if we can't get that type of player and trade our 1st and get one of the top3 three second round picks and another 3rd, maybe get Wisneiski and Dowling .
Trading up inot the top 10 from where we are will cost too much, and IMO will do more harm than good.

If you look at one of those guides for draft pick values it would take every pick this year plus a few from another year to trade into the top 10. I wouldn't be opposed to them trading away picks 5-7 and any supplemental picks to pick up 3-4 players that would have an immediate impact(we can all dream).

I know it isnt happening. Ive watched numerous drafts and it never happens that Pitt moves up..generally speaking. I was just answering the question. Even if they considered it I know we would be giving up a whole heck of a lot so its just wishful thinking. But in that same breath I really do want him. He will be a day one starter and future pro bowler. I dont think I am going out on too big a limb to say that. Time will tell. Peterson--your on the clock for day one starter --whenever day one ever happens.

a future pro bowler that wont be on our team.

and a move could be worth it IF he turns out to be the "next" best shutdown corner. he really is freakish.

I will quit conveying my man crush on Peterson now.

I agree I would love to grab the next AMAZING CB like Peterson or Price but thats just not in the cards. Hell I would love to sign Nnamdi and draft Pouncey and end all the talk about weak line and weak secondary. Problem is we all love the Steelers. Things are never like that and as much as we hate it now, we love it when they hoist that silver trophy in the air with confetti falling from the sky. Front office is much smarter than us. Well at least most of us lol.

But I have a feeling if we target the first rounders I have chosen, it will come at the cost of giving up the second round pick.
Smith won't be there. Pouncy might not be either - he is
the top OG on the board, and we pick 31st. Usually the top
OG goes before the very end of the 1st. I like Ras Dowling
in the 2nd.

Or forfeit first round pick for Benjamin Ijalana if he's there
