Default Fans Favorite Pick?

I'm curious about Steeler nations favorite pick or and their least favorite pick...

I'm fond of CB Joe Burnett 5th round UCF
Not fond of DT Ra'Shon Harris 6th round Oregon

Just my opinion, what is your guys?

Urbik. LOVE road graters!!

I don't really like Ra'Shon Harris that much either, but hopefully he becomes like willie gay, a pick I hated and now absolutely love

I love two thirds of the 3rd round. Urbik and Lewis will be big contributors down the line.

I was disappointed with the Johnson TE pick only because we could have landed Cadogan OT, Canfield OG, Beckwith / Joseph ILB or Pegues at FS. This pick would have been a definite UDFA with some patience

Hood will be a big time fan favourite in years to come. The next Aaron Smith for the fans

I really, really like both the picks of Urbik and Tank . . . not so big on Wallace.

Round 1, Pick 32 (32) Evander Hood DT 6'3" 300 Missouri --
Good solid pick. Not over the moon about it but it needed to be done

Round 3, Pick 15 (79) (From Broncos) Kraig Urbik OT 6'5" 328 Wisconsin
Best pick of the draft. Good value, starting potential

Round 3, Pick 20 (84) (From Bears through Broncos) Mike Wallace WR 6'0" 199 Mississippi
This is maybe the most exciting pick, the guy looks like he could be a game breaker with some return potential. Could see some action in the slot

Round 3, Pick 32 (96) Keenan Lewis CB 6'0" 208 Oregon State
Solid pick. Should be a good value as an outside one on one corner if he pans out

Round 5, Pick 32 (168) Joe Burnett CB 5'9" 192 Central Florida
Not crazy about this one. The FO is obsessive about the kick returners. I'm still at the point where I'm happy they at least catch the ball and move in the right direction. Not sure how this guy fits on the roster

Round 5, Pick 33 (169) (Compensatory selection) Frank Summers RB 5'9" 241 UNLV
I'm not a member of Frank's bandwagon but he's woth a look this late. I'd rather have safety or OT here

Round 6, Pick 32 (205) Ra'Shon Harris DT 6'4" 298 Oregon
Good pick here. Groomable guy who should be able to make it to the practice squad

Round 7, Pick 17 (226) (From Buccaneers) A.Q. Shipley C 6'1" 304 Penn State
I think AQ will have an up-hill battle to make the roster. worth a shot for a 7th rounder. Physically he's similar to Legursky but slighly less developed. Mentally he's probably tougher.

Round 7, Pick 32 (241) David Johnson TE 6'2" 260 Arkansas State
I'd rather have safety or OT here. Might be able to make the PS and take over next year for Spaeth. He's out of nowhere -- maybe he can push Spaeth this year?

Don;t care what people say the TE Johnson pick but I like it. Great weight and speed combo with great hands. Can see him beating LBs all day down the field catching passes as a FB.

Urbik the same size as the lineman drafted in the first round.

Shipley could be the next Webster at center.

Hood, a bigger Smith at DE.

Love the Center, AQ and hate the TE pick in the 7th. There were several tackles that could com in and compete. This guy could have been a UDFA. IMO
