Default Early 2009 mock drafts with no idea

http://www.nfldraftdog.com/Mock_Draf...mock_draft.htm

Some sites are starting to get out some really early mock drafts and I am amazed at how little some writers know about the teams that they are writing about. I can live with the draft order projections. I can live with the possibility of picking best player available.

But I really cant handle some picks like this one. Never do the steelers pass on Moala or Tyson Jackson.


Quote:
22. Pittsburgh Brian Robiskie WR Ohio State
2008 NFL Draft Pick: RB Rashard Mendenhall, Illinois
The Steelers could use some more youth at receiver and Robiskie should be one of the top senior receivers available for the 2009 NFL Draft. He is the son of former NFL player and current coach Terry Robiskie and had 55 receptions for 935 yards and 11 TDs in 2007.
Yes the steelers do need another WR when these guys are still on the board.

Quote:
29. Jacksonville Fili Moala DT USC
2008 NFL Draft Pick: DE Derrick Harvey, Florida
USC has a history of producing talented defensive lineman and the massive Moala (6' 4" 298 lbs) should be the next in line. A worthy replacement for Marcus Stroud.

30. San Diego Jeremy Perry OG Oregon State
2008 NFL Draft Pick: CB Antoine Cason, Arizona
A powerful offensive lineman (6' 2" 315 lbs) that sustains his blocks very well. Injured in 2007, but if healthy he could be a top ten pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.

31. Indianapolis Tyson Jackson DE LSU
2008 NFL Draft Pick (2nd round): C Pollak, Mike, Arizona State
Jackson was not impressive in 2007, but he has the size (6' 4" 290 lbs) and athletic ability to rebound in 2008. He finished 2007 with only 3.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss. He was smart to return for his senior year.

32. Dallas Herman Johnson OG LSU
2008 NFL Draft Pick: RB Felix Jones, Arkansas / CB Mike Jenkins, South Florida
A complete monster at 6' 6" 350 pounds, but he is not fat. Johnson has great feet and balance, he just needs to play with a mean streak. A replacement for struggling Kyle Kosier.
Has anyone else seen other mocks that are wide of the mark for the steelers in 2009 like this one?

I think mock drafts that are almost a year early are a bit ridiculous anyway. Gee, wonder what stud 5th grade pee wee league LB will be available for us to draft in 2019?

I thought the same thing we would never draft a running back in the first this year.

Everyone knows the only reason we took Mendenhall in the 1st was because he was BPA and he should never have fallen that far, well at least according to the experts.

I really dont think that the Steelers took Mendenhall just because he was the best player available myself. Everyone in the league has figured it out that you need a good backup at RB just like you need a backup QB that can atleast somewhat get the job done for 4 or 5 games a season.

IMO Mendenhall was chosen for a number of reasons
1. BPA
2. Insurance for RB this season
3. Insurance for RB when FWP becomes a free agent
The steelers draft extremely well with the future in mind.

On a different note I am amazed at the differing philosophies of the NFL and NBA come draft time. If the Mendenhall scenario was replicated in the NBA draft ,how long would have it taken for a team to try to trade for his rights by offering up players and picks.

Does anyone have an opinion on this that might explain to me the core difference ????
