Default My Mock 2.0

1 CB Ras I Dowling

2. OT/OG Orlando Franklin/OG Marcus Gannon

3. NT Kendrick Ellis

4.OT Joseph Barksdale/ LB/DE Dontae Moch/ DE Lawrence Guy

5. CB Curtis Marsh/MLB Collin McCarthy/ WR Stephen Burton/ ILB(OLB) Mario Harvey

6.K/P Alex Henery/ WR Austin Pettis

7. RB Da'rel Scott


The ones bolded are the ones that I think are actual possibilities in those rounds....but I got a couple of exceptions....I really like rb D. Scott and he might go earlier...so idk my 6 and 7 might be switched.....

I'll be fixing it soon...construction criticism welcome.....

I'm really starting to like the possibility of us drafting Ras I Dowling (6' 1 3/8" 200lbs) in the 1st...He's showed a lot of scouts/teams that he's finally getting healthy by running the 40 twice at his pro day and posting a 4.36, 4.37, and or even a 4.33 according to whichever sources you look at. He also jumped 38", and 19 B.R., and showed scouts enough hip fluidity to be able to play CB in the NFL.

For those people that say he's injury prone he just had some bad luck in his senior year in my opinion. His only season where he missed the most time was in 2010. If he would of came out in 2009 nobody would of said that he was injury prone...The guy just had some bad luck and he finally looks like he's getting healthy by running a 4.3 40 and performing for scouts....imagine what he'll be able to do if he's 100%!...I say we take a chance on him in the late 1st or early 2nd if we trade down.....

Williams?? I would rather have his teammate Curtis Brown...I think Brown will be the better pro....picking in the 31st spot of the 1st round is practically an early 2nd round pick....If we trade down I don't think we'll have a shot at Dowling....there are way too many teams that need a CB in the beginning of the 2nd round....A.Williams is a raw prospect and if he's going to succeed as a CB i'm putting my money on the Steelers being able to develop him into a good CB....so whatever and whoever they decide to draft at CB...I think that they we'll be just fine....

I thought Ellis had off-field issues? I would sub him for Jarrell Powe out of Ole Miss.

ellis does or did have some off field issues...but you can't deny the fact that the steelers are very interested.....so idk...maybe he seems to be over those off field issues that he had while at penn state...the guy looks like a beast and Mayock said on NFL Network that he might not get out of the 2nd round....so the talent is there....so we'll c in 2 weeks...
