Default Early draft mocks

So, what do people think our positions of need are and in what order should we address them? (if at all)

In my own humble view;

1st - OL
2nd - CB
3rd - WR ( im assuming we get one as compensatory)
4th - DL
5th - LB/S depth/development
6th - Same as above

Ive not got masses of knowledge yet but at the minute id absolutely love;

1st - Taylor Lewan/ Jake Matthews
2nd - Louchiez Purifoy
3rd - Josh Huff/ Donte Moncrief
4th - Daquan Jones/Deandre Coleman

Not too bothered about names for 5th and 6th, give me someone fast and athletic and put a little faith in our coaching staff that theyll come good. Lamin Barrow or CJ Barnett would be nice. A lot of my thinking reflects badly on the futures of Ryan Clark and Sean Spence with the later drafting though.

Right now I'm on

1 - Brett Hundley / Mike Evans
2 - Aaron Colvin / Purifiy / Eric Erbon / DeAnthony Thomas

Rest of the way its too early

Although I am not on the draft a linemen bandwagon , I do like Antonio Richardson
Maybe a trade back up into the second half of round 1 and take him

I love Brett Hundley but I think it could be too early for a QB with our current line set up. I can totally see the reasoning behind it though.

And mentioning DAT....things dreams are made of if we pick him. Oregon are the college team I support so I've seen a lot of him.

Matt Miller has us going Taylor Lewan in the first (5th overall right now as of current draft standings) and HaHa Clinton-Dix in the second, the Safety from 'Bama.

If HaHa makes it to the 2nd you jump

As for Lewnan - meh I'm not a fan of LT pick but it might be necessary... Sadly all the high picks on line and still need more

Scenario 1 - Picking 6th - 9th

1. Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA.
2. Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama.
3. Louchiez Purifoy, CB, Florida.

Anthony Barr looks like he's in the same caliber that Von Miller and Aldon Smith were coming out of college.

"HaHa" playing with Shamarko Thomas is just awesome.

Purifoy has been in a nosedive since the beginning of the season. It's been hard to watch him play so poorly for as long as he has been. Poor angles, missed tackles, dropped INTs and the lack of explosive plays have sent him tumbling down the boards. I don't think I've ever seen someone drop so far in such a short amount of time. It's not even completely out of the question to have him mocked in the fourth at this point, albeit unlikely. This kid was once a mid first round prospect, but because the Florida defense has just come off its hinges, it's made that entire defense look bad. Roberson is in the same boat as Purifoy.

Scenario 2 - Picking 3rd Overall

1. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
2. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
3. Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida.

It's not debatable - if we're picking 3rd overall and Mariota is on the board, we have to take him. There's no if's, ands or buts about it. He's going to be a franchise Quarterback in the NFL. I had serious concerns and doubts about this kid after Oregon's offensive attack in 2012 was dump-offs and screens for the majority of their passing attack, but this kid came into 2013 with a vengeance it seems. He's accurate in and out of the pocket and can scramble for huge gains. He's more accurate than RG3 with better touch on his passes. While he's not as fast outside the pocket, he's a mini-Ben in the fact that he can escape, look down field and hit his target. This kid could come into 2014 and start for the Steelers, but that's the beautiful thing about this pick - he's not going to have to. He can sit behind Ben for a year and sponge off of him. He can learn and pick up the subtleties of the game behind one of the greatest in it. Then, he can follow in his footsteps.

Benjamin had Miller, and Mariota will have ASJ. He just makes plays. He's sure-handed and doesn't need to be the focal point of an offense, but is a hell'uva complementary piece. Picture Heath Miller lite, and you have this kid. He won't be a Gronkowski or Hernandez, but he'll be a safety blanket.

Marcus is in the same boat as Purifoy. A poor 2013 has sent his stock in a serious downward spiral. I could legitimately copy and paste what I said about Purifoy and have it apply to Roberson. Roberson and Allen provide a solid 1-2 punch at CB. He'd come in for Dime packages to start, then eventually beat out Gay for the Nickel and take over for Ike when he hangs 'em up.

I have this scenario second because it's far less likely, albeit possible. Roethlisberger misses time every year and there's no reason to think this season is going to be different. We're already in a nightmare so far, and if Ben goes down, there's no telling what will happen. The first two picks of the draft would be Teddy Bridgewater to Jacksonville and Clowney to Tampa. And, no, I wouldn't trade the third overall pick if Mariota is there.
