Benjamin and Hageman are both physical and athletic freaks with the ability to be a game changer at their position, but the tape doesn't reflect that in the slightest for Hageman at this time. If we're looking for a guy that can come in and make an impact immediately for our defense, Ra'Shede is not going to be that guy. I can't stress that point enough. He absolutely needs a year, possibly two under his belt with John Mitchell before he's able to take over a significant role for this defense. That begs the question - do we have time to wait for him to develop? With our defensive line currently a huge question mark, I don't think we do.

This kid is going to get drafted higher than he should because of his physical attributes. Kelvin Benjamin is in the same boat, but in my mind, has a higher ceiling than Hageman currently does. I would be absolutely shocked if he was our first round pick.
To be honest with you, I don't really know too much about Hageman other than what I've read in more than one sight. People really seem to be high on him and what they described seems pretty impressive.

I've kind of changed my mind about who I would want at 15 though. I've read some stuff on CJ Mosley and think that he would be an excellent pick at 15. I've read that he is being compared almost in the same light at Kueckley(hope that is spelled right) from Carolina. I also read an article on his off-the-field life and it reads Steelers all over him! He's a quiet guy with excellent character. He is a real student of the game, works his butt off every day and can fly all over the field. If I had to think who realistically would be available at 15, I would think he would. I can't see Watkins being available at 15. If he is, no brainer, you take him.

CJ Mosley is a LB that I would love to have on the Steelers. Larry Foote should be back this year but he will be done soon. We really don't know if Sean Spence will ever be the player he was before the injury. Being able to pair Mosley and Timmons together in the middle, man that would be ridiculous, IMO.
