Unless Mel Kiper and Todd McShay are drafting for all the NFL teams. If that happens, all eligible college receivers will be taken by the end of the third round.

He & JT & I have a bet going on...

Regardless, as I was saying elsewhere, I hope that 15 receivers go in the top 45 (plus the QBs & O-linemen)... which would leave about 20 defenders left for the Steelers to choose from.

46 - 15 (WR) - 5 (QB) - 6 (OL) = 20 defenders

SUMMATION:
2 of the top 20 defenders > a WR early on

good 3-4 DEs are available in later rounds, Aaron Smith was a 4th rounder while Brett Keisel was a 7th round pick.

developmental DEs such as Will Clarke in the 3rd, Taylor Hart in the 4th, Brent Urban and Josh Mauro will be available in the 5th and that's where we should draft one...

Ed Bouchette Chat Transcript 5/6/2014

aul: What position stands a better chance to get some playing time in their first year WR or CB? They need contributors this year.

Ed Bouchette: The Steelers rarely expect their rookies to contribute much their first year, and they do not draft thinking they will. There is room, however, for rookies at either WR or CB to contribute. A wide receiver always has the better chance, all else being equal, to play right away.

BDenny29: So much talk about a tall WR...what about a speedy playmaker like Cooks at 15 if Dennard/Gilbert/Evans are off the board?

Ed Bouchette: I'm on record loving that guy. I'd pick him after the top two wide receivers if the corners are gone and I could not trade down.

mikeflores16: Who is your one under the radar player on the team currently do you expect to have a breakout year?

Ed Bouchette: Markus Wheaton would be my top choice.

kjacksonpgh: ED, do you believe that taking Kelvin Benjamin at 1: 15 would be a mistake? He really seems to more of a TE then a WR. He is a big body receiver with average speed and questionable hands. Does he really fit the Haley offensive scheme? You're Thoughts?

Ed Bouchette: Todd Haley likes him, but I would think he'd be more of a possibility if they trade down. I would not take him at No. 15.

Zack B: Lets says they take a corner in rd 1, what about Nix in rd 2 if he is there. We can always get a wr later. Brandon Coleman is 6'6" and can be had in rd 4.

Ed Bouchette: I don't think they'll wait until the fourth round to get a wide receiver. Third has been good to them with that position.

John in Ohio: I say defense early and often. Defense wins championships. Look at what happened when #1 offense went against the #1 defense. What do you think?

Ed Bouchette: I think they need players everywhere on defense, and they also need a good wide receiver.

I'm pretty big on Allen Robinson this week, starting to think I'd rather have him than Tuitt at 46 even if both are there.

Yeah man I am too. I feel there's a group of receivers there in the second round that in some years could be a first rounder. ( A. ROB , Matthews , Adams , Latimer , etc )

Assuming they address corner in the first. I understand going for a Hageman or Tuitt if they are there at 46.

I'm not so sure they will be though. There's always big Dlineman that go higher than people project.

Anyway , we are gonna get some players this year. I feel it.
