Hello folks. I've volunteered to draft for the Steelers in my first ever mock draft. So far I've taken:

32. Alphonso Smith, CB, Wake Forest.
64. Eric Wood, Center, Louisville
96. Demitrius Byrd, WR, LSU

Now before you bash my picks bare in mind that the guy YOU liked may have already been selected. For instance, Byrd was my 4th or 5th choice for that spot but all the top WR's were gone.

I'm just looking for suggestions for round 4. Any takers? Thanks.

P.S. I'm not much of a draft guy. lol.

I really don't see Alphonso Smith as a first round prospect, but most people do so I can entirely understand why you would make that selection.

I like the pick of Eric Wood; I think he could turn into a better center than Alex Mack who most Steelers fans seem to want.

I don't have much problem with Byrd. I would probably take a guy like Mike Thomas from Arizona before him (But as you said, he may have been selected), however, I don't think of Byrd as a bad player so I'm rather indifferent about that choice.

Not knowing how the other selections went, it is a little hard to asses from my point of view... but overall I would say good job

Thanks. Any 4th round suggestions?


I wanted to take Brandon Gibson from Washington State or Derrick Williams from Penn State in the 3rd but both were gone. I took Byrd because of his speed compared to who was left (plus not many of any value were over 6ft).

Keep an eye on DE Rick Jean-Francois from LSU, at 6'2 1/2" and 295 lbs could play DE in a 3-4 and a DT in a 4-3. Very strong and makes plays in the backfield. Of course this could be a 5th rounder maybe.

OT!

Cadogan, Krogog, Fulton, or Vollmer if they're there

Since you have gone DB, WR, OG with the first 3 picks...........I think its time to focus on either the DE position with Kyle Moore, USC...........or the OT position with Alex Boone, OSU.

Moore might be able to play DE in a couple years. Boone could come in and compete at RT this season I think, but should be a guy that plays the RT spot in the NFL for a solid 10 year career.

I think one (or more) of the following guys will be in black and gold by the evening of April 26th:

Donald Washington
Marcus Freeman
Brian Robiske
Brian Hartline

Can't say exactly as to which rounds, although I think Robiske and Freeman are solid seconds.

bird in the 3rd? what has he shown to deserve being a 3rd? he only had 72 catches in 2 seasons.... his 4.42 , 40 time is ok, but nothing to get too excited about. i wouldn't touch him any sooner than a fifth.
