Default Pre Combine Mock

I normally like to put out a Pre combine mock and see if it holds up. Usually doesn't, but anyway.

1. Earl Thomas S/CB 5'10" 195lbs 4.44
I've seen him listed as the 2nd best S, and the 2nd best CB, in this draft I will be happy with the 2nd best at either position. I have seen him play several times and think this is THE player we need, plus being the BAP at 18

2. Torrell Troup NT UCF 6'3" 310lbs.
I know some will say this is a reach, but NTs are in high demand this year and there are not that many of them, plus I am not that taken with next years crop. Troup showed in the Shrine game that he would be able to play the position in the pros. I wish we would have addressed this last year, but we didn't. Thomas is also a possibility.

3. Jared Veldheer OT Hillsdale 6'8" 320lbs
I have not seen this kid much, but everything I have read and heard points to a good 3rd round pick. He is advertised as strong and quick, and athletic, right now I would take 2 out of the three. I will be very interested in seeing him in the agility drills, and the strength drills.

4. Tony Moeake TE Iowa 6'3 255lbs 4.82
Tony had injury problem early on, but this year stayed on the field for all but 2 games. He has extremal good hands, and can run after the catch. He is also a good blocking TE. An instant upgrade over the one we will loss this year.
( I AM NOT UNBIASED ON THIS ONE.)

5a. Micah Johnson ILB Kentucky 6'2" 257lbs 4.78
Micah got hurt at the end of the season and did not play in any all star games, I don't know if he will compete in the combines. IF his knee is recovering he could end up as the player the Steelers stoled in the 5th round.

5b. Kurt Coleman SS Ohio St. 5'10" 195lbs 4.57
Kurt had a good year in a good conference. 78 tackles, 4.5 for losses, 4 ints, 5 pass breakups. He did pretty well in coverage when the buckeyes where in their nickle defense. Will not eliminate the problem if Troy go's down, but would soften the pain.

5c. Cameron Sheffield OLB Troy 6'3" 255lbs 4.78
A good pass rushing DE. Even though he's a not a celebrated as Brandon Lang, you watch some of the games and look at the stats and he had about as good of year. Could be a quality backup for us.

6. Marcus Easley WR Connecticut 6'3" 215lbs 4.42
Some will call him a one year wonder, but he did a great job this year. He has a combination of size and speed. I believe his hands were questionable till this year. Worth a 6th rounder anyway.

7a. Brett Swenson K Michigan St. 5'8" 173lbs.
This is a, if we don't sign Reed, pick. Accustom to playing in bad weather which may be why the Steelers are showing interest in him. An accurate kicker but we may still have to put up with some shortish kickoffs.

7b. Trindon Holiday WR LSU 5'5" 162lbs 4.27
I'm not bad mouthing Logan, just would love to draft someone that runs a sub 4.3 - 40. For a little guy I have seen him take some pretty good hits and get back up.

I love Trindon but 162 pounds is going to work against him. At 5-5 he can't add much to his frame.

There's another LSU guy the Steelers need to grab at all costs--Chad Jones. He plays with a lot of heart and makes big plays in clutch situations. Imagine having Troy mentor CJ.

You didn't address the need for a Center & compliment RB to Mendenhall.

He could be MOP. I just felt that at this point in the draft he might be our best option as a backup safety. Particularly if the Steelers decide that Thomas is in deed a CB.

I love Chad Jones, would love to have him as a SS, but he will be gone in the 2nd.

I don't see a OC or a RB as pressing needs in this particular draft.

We got Justin Hartwig and Darnell Stapleton. Everyone is forgetting Isaac Redman :(

Nexe season we could have 3-4 ons our roster redman, vincent, moore, mendenhall, summers, and maybe davis again, dont think we need running back this draft.

Agreed . I think we will be able to add depth with free agency at RB, if needed. I also would'nt mind picking up Holliday late he has the capability of being an explosive returner in the NFL. (anyone remember Dante Hall?)
