Default My Piece of Crap Mock Draft

1-23 DE Calais Campbell, 6-7, 280, Miami
2-55 OG/OT Brandon Albert 6-7 315 Virginia
3-86 CB Chevis Jackson, 6-0, 188, LSU
4-117 C Kory Lichtensteiger, 6-3, 296, Bowling Green
5-148 WR Will Franklin, 6-1, 200, Missouri
6-179 RB Cory Boyd, 6-0, 218, South Carolina

OK I'll exercise my constitutional right to predict the Steelers future despite having no qualifications what-so-ever.

So what's my rationale? In light of the Steelers move on Max Starks, I think we'll look to take a DE in the first round and wait to take a swing OL in the second. Calais Campbell is a beast who would provide size and youth at a position we need. As for the swing OL Brandon Albert and Sam Baker (USC) fit the bill. I favor Albert. After that, I would like to see a solid CB or Center. I think Kory Lichtensteiger fits the Steelers mold; he's nasty and smart and looks to be a good candidate to take up the torch (permanently) at the Center position. Lichtensteiger should be available in the 4th, so we'll have a shot at a solid CB in the 3rd. Chevis Jackson looks like a player and could be a steal in the 3rd.

After that it?s a crap shoot and really depends on who's available. If we can land Boyd in the 5th or 6th I'd be happy.

Let me know how high the crap meter is running on this one. On a crap scale of 1-10 (10 = total crap) I'll grade myself at a 4

everything except for the branden albert pick kinda sucked. dont go for all no name players, not likely to end up being a good pay off.

actually i don't think it looks bad at all.........as long as albert is a good option at tackle i'd say you've covered all the immediate needs, with descent value across the board.

Two offensive linemen and one defensive linemen after the head coach of the team has said they need to get younger and better in both of those units.

It's a start, but I only see one player of three you selected making those units better than they are now.

Don't be so hard on yourself, your pocmd is as good a guess as anybody elses. lol

Seems everyone is convinced we go OL #1 but I wouldn't be mad with a stud DL.

I'd like to see 2 OL and 2 DL with the first 5 picks. As far as who they are exactly, I'll defer to the FO.

Not going to sweat the last rounds. Replace Campbell with Kentwan Balmer and I'd be very pleased with that haul. Wouldn't mind seeing one of the pure tackles slip (maybe Nicks from Nebraska) but don't see that as realistic.

Balmer for the D-line or Cherilus for RT are my two hopes for our 1st rounder.

Boyd is an interesting pick where you've got him. I'd still like to see them go O-Line in the first round, probably tackle. Good conversation starter.

I'm all for it if the pick is a DT. But getting another DE would be a waste of a pick at this point in time.
