Default SI 1st round Mock Draft Don Banks

SI Mock Draft
Don Banks

18 OT Bryan Bulaga Iowa Jr. 6-6 312
The Steelers have expressed their intention to re-focus somewhat on their power running game, and that requires an infusion of talent at offensive line. Besides having a last name that sounds like it fits in Pittsburgh, Bulaga is solid enough to play right away in the NFL.

I wouldn't be mad at all with that.... He already looks good in black 'n gold.....

Although I'm preferring Iupati at this point in time with the recent news about how he just blew everyone up at the Senior Bowl practices.

Bad pick. Dont' know why everyone thinks we need a tackle.

Wouldn't hear me complain. I think there's alot of CB's to be had in the 2nd to 3rd round.

If we can get Clark and Hampton resigned before then, I'd love to see the FO fortify the O-line.

I believe we need to address the O-line and make it a priority in Round 1. Enough of drafting the lineman projects in the mid-rounds. Personally, I'd like to see Iupati as G is an area of big time need but then again, they could take Bulaga and move Colon inside. I think it's a win-win with either way.

As much I'd like to address Defense, I think their are ample DB's in round 2 and possibly an ILB or DL. For picking as high as we are in the first, I don't see players like McClain, Haden, Thomas, falling. Dan Williams will probably be there but is he higher valued than the OL in this dratt? Not sure.

I wouldnt complain about getting a stud tackle. Yes there are bigger needs, but its not like picking a QB or TE in the first, something we do not need at all. I mean depending what happens with Colon, have this guy at LT, Starks can go back to RT...and Colon if resigned maybe RG..I dont know, just some thoughts. However if they are not set on Legursky as the future at Center, then that will need to be addressed in the high rounds next year, as i do not see the first 2 picks this yr being OL.

probably because the steelers need one. starks is average and colon is average. colon, IMO, is better suited for G.

tell me, who are the backup tackles when colon or starks goes down? are you content with essex and hills waiting in the wings?

Agreed I think we need to address it as well. If we can get Bryan Bulaga Mendenhall would have a big hole to run through. It would for sure help our running game. If Thomas is not there then I would like to see this guy.

I would rather go safety and build upon its success under tomlin and lebeau, the steelers are all about defense, earlier in the year after the chargers game analyists were calling kemeoeatu and starks the best at their position.

what happened there
