Barr is laughably bad at shedding blocks. He plays like a WR in the worst sense of the word.

heres a link to the latest episode of the terrible podcast. Scout Dave Te Thomas is a special guest he gives his opinion on a lot of potential steeler selections and more.

Note : He's not thrilled about Ebron or Mosely.

thinks Benjamin be would best suited for a Aaron hernandez/ Jimmy graham type role than wr.

he thinks Dennard is the best Corner to come out in the last 4 or 5 years.

You won't like this mock, then.

2014 NFL Mock Draft: Who Is on the Rise in the First Round?

15. San Francisco 49ers (from Pittsburgh Steelers): Darqueze Dennard, CB, MSU

Projected Trade: The San Francisco 49ers trade the No. 30 and No. 61 overall selections to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for the No. 15 overall pick.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, on the other hand, could have incentive to move down. Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert, who has lauded the depth of this year’s draft, told reporters at the NFL Annual Meeting, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, that “it makes more sense” to trade down than up in this year’s draft.

In last year’s first round, the 49ers gave up the No. 74 overall selection to move up 13 spots, from No. 31 to No. 18, to select safety Eric Reid. To move up 15 places to a slightly higher slot, one of their two late second-round picks would likely be seen as fair value both ways.

30. Pittsburgh Steelers (from San Fran. 49ers): Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

While some might say the Pittsburgh Steelers should stay put at No. 15 overall and draft Darqueze Dennard themselves, they could end up with a player who is arguably just as good if Virginia Tech’s Kyle Fuller was still available at the 30th pick.

Quietly projected by the masses as a second-rounder prior to the NFL Scouting Combine, he has been quickly rising up projections as a potential first-round pick since a strong performance in Indianapolis. A physical, instinctive, 6’0” and 190-pound cornerback who plays the ball well, he’d be a good fit for the Steelers defense.

At 33 years old, veteran Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor is a shell of the player he once was. Pittsburgh would be smart to replace him in the starting lineup—and add a cornerback who can be a legitimate No. 1—by drafting Fuller should he be available after a trade down.

Minnesota’s Ra’Shede Hageman would also make a lot of sense at this slot, as he is a versatile defensive lineman who projects well to playing 3-4 defensive end and he has huge upside. Fuller just might be too good of a fit for Pittsburgh to pass up in this scenario.

Don't care if we still get Fuller (which we wouldn't at 30)...I'd still go Bane on Heinz Field.
