Default Mock the 7-Round Mock

I'm new here, but I'm sure you know the drill. Here's a seven-round mock:

http://www.draftsite.com/nfl/mock-draft/2014/

Now make the Steelers' picks. If you're going to engineer a trade, make sure it's sensible. Nobody will give us a 2nd and next year's 1st to swap #15 for #20. For example, I have us swapping #15 and #28 with the Panthers; last year, the Cowboys traded down 13 spots in the 1st and got a 3rd for doing it, so that's the guideline I used.

Steeler picks are listed below, along with my choices. Whom do you take?

(from Carolina) Round 1 (28) - Jimmie Ward / DB / Northern Illinois
Round 2 (46) - Davante Adams / WR / Fresno State
(from Carolina) Round 3 (92) - Marcus Smith / EDGE / Louisville
(compensatory) Round 3 (97) - Arthur Lynch / TE / Georgia
Round 4 (118) - Antone Exum / CB / Virginia Tech
Round 5 (157) - JuWuan James / OT / Tennessee
(compensatory) Round 5 (173) - Jeremy Gallon / WR / Michigan
Round 6 (192) - Ryan Carrethers / NT / Arkansas State
(compensatory) Round 6 (215) - Logan Thomas / QB / Virginia Tech
Round 7 (230) - Cody Latimer / WR / Indiana

Considering all of the mid-round studs available, I love the idea of double-dipping. Grabbing a slot guy like Gallon (this class has numerous great slotmen) AND a Boldin-esque #2 in Adams would make me all gooey inside.

And if the draft were to somehow fall THIS way, there is just no way I can pass on Latimer in the 7th (will not happen). I think he's a third-round guy.

Also, I should note that I've yet to evaluate the RBs, Gs, Cs, ILBs, and CBs in this draft. So I don't yet feel qualified to speak on the value of those guys.
