I think Ellis will most certainly be a day 3 pick. Rd 5 or later and for the exact reasons you stated. He's just not disruptive enough to demand a double team from NFL caliber lineman and needs to anchor better. He has all the potential in the world to be a starter but I think he will need time (prob 2 seasons of dedicated work) to get stronger and be a true zero tech NT.

As for the idea of a OLB in the first three rounds...I agree. I'd like them to trade back and take Auburns Dee Ford in the late 1st. Get back an additional 2nd or 3rd pick in the process. If they stay put you should watch some tape on Shaquil Barrett from Colorado State. Reminds me of James Harrison and he destroyed Alabama this season. Could be had 4th to 5th round and is just a beast. My fav sleeper OLB in this class. He gets no love from scouts yet...

Copy and paste this link for the Bama tape. He gave their LT and TE's fits. Love this kid.

I believe , porter was an assistant there. ( think it was his alma mater )
If he is that good , I'm sure Joey has put a good word in for him. he could potentially be our fourth or fifth round pick then.

If the Steelers wanted to, they could get all five:

1. Roberson
2. Bucannon
3 (comp). Skov
4. Purifoy
7. Murray

Roberson would be a reach at 15, and I'm not sure that Purifoy drops "that" far... but, it's be possible.... not optimal, but possible.

But @teegre No WR?
Yes, and as mentioned above Elbeast would also be a good consideration but in later rounds.

The mock you have is my favorite Ive seen, love it. Only thing I would change/add would be taking a chance on Colt Lyerla somewhere in there.

Thanks.

But maybe in the 6th or 7th round. Not sure we would take a chance on him. I like his talent but his he needs to grow up
