Default 2012 draft strategy

The Steelers need to think about getting a game breaking RB. None are available in the draft. And they need to think about finding another game changing safety. Troy isn't going to be around forever, and if he gets hurt, there is a dropoff.

THE STEELERS WILL ADDRESS BOTH THESE ISSUES, AND HERE IS HOW THEY WILL DO IT.

The Bengals get the 17th overall pick from Oakland. The Steelers will trade up a few spots and offer cincy a late round pick. The Steelers will select SS Mark Barron from Alabama. Barron is the best safety to come out of the draft since, you guessed it, Troy Polamalu.

Next, the Steelers need a game changing RB. Oakland has two good starters in Michael Bush, and Darren McFadden, BUT, their best RB is Taiwan Jones. He reminds you of Tony Dorsett.
So, since the Raiders don't have a , first, second, or third round pick this year, the Steelers will offer them a 2nd and 3rd round pick for RB Taiwan Jones.

With the Steelers remaining picks, they will shore up both lines.
By pursuing this course of action, they will get the best RB in the game, the best safety in the draft, give their 4th round pick to cincy to get Barron, and still have a few picks to address the line problems.

I've been lobbying to pick up Michael Bush since he entered the draft! He's a free agant and I would love to have him come in and pound it down Baltimores throat

Mark Barron seems like a good pick for us yes, but we will not have to trade down or up for him because teams are afraid to take Safeties in the 1st RD. We might be able to trade up in the 2nd the get Barron, but our 1st RD pick will be dedicated to helping either line. As for us getting a RB, I do not see it at all. I have been saying this more the longest time that Baron Batch is going to be the speedster we have been longing for. Batch is going to develop into a great pass-catching RB. He has great speed and blocking ability to help on 3rd Down as well. The Steelers never do draft day trades and they most definitely not do one where they lose picks. The Steelers strive on having as many picks as possible without having to trade any players.

This is not a year to be giving draft picks away for a unproven running back and safety when like 10 or more veteran players are going to be released. We need to draft a ILB, NT, & OG all ready to be starters as well as a possible new OT and backup QB, before we even think about Running Back. In the BA offense Running Back is way down the list.

According to your strategy the Steeler's draft would look like this

1 Mark Barren
NO PICKS IN THE 2ND - 4TH ROUNDS* (totally insane)
AND PICKS 5-7 TO HELP THE LINES OUT.

So the Steelers would trade a 2nd and 3rd round pick for Taiwan Jones a guy who has 16 career carries and is somehow the best Running Back in the game.

They would rely on 5th through 7th rounders to fill out their offensive and defensive lines, and they would have a rookie safety sitting on the bench behind Ryan Clark and Troy.


*and it is doubtful the Raiders or Bengals would ever make any trade with the Steelers.

4real like cmon that would be stupid to trade up unless its a great LT and give up a 2nd and 3rd round pick for a RB that was drafted in the 4th round last year something dont add up....but i dont think they really no alot about drafting or football lol....he might be trolling

Please let me know what you are smoking so I can stay away from it. Obviously you have no clue about what you are talking about. 1. No way does Pgh (or any other team for that matter) trade their 1st and 2nd picks to move up to draft a safety who I guarantee will still be there at 24 or even think about taking a RB we do not need a RB as much as we desperately need a OG or OT or DT or a HC with a brain. Ben takes way too many hits because our OL couldnt block the Duquesne Cheerleaders. We cant get turnovers because we have to line up a LB on the DL because our DL cant get any pressure on the QB nor stop the run without the help If we do not get a quality DL we are done. No way is Pgh going to pay Hampton 8.5 Million coming off ACL surgery so he is probably gone Hood cant play NT so we may go to 4 - 3 basically. Yes Troy cant last forever but I would be looking for a CB in the 3rd 4th round who can cover and CATCH the rock.
