Default Mock after the Chargers game

I think this game with Ike out opened up a glaring need at a #1 Corner for when Ike actually goes ... I'm very disappointed in Allan and Brown after this game ... as I have high hopes for Allan , not to sure about Brown anymore

1st - Xavier Rhodes - CB - Florida State
2nd - Phillip Thomas - SS - Fresno State
3rd - Gerald Hodges - OLB - Penn State
4th - Duke Williams - SS - Nevada
5th - Abry Jones - DE - Georgia
6th - Michael Mauti - ILB - Penn State
7th - Zac Stacy - RB - Vandy

It was hard to watch the defense struggle to get a finger.on rivers going against third stringers but the secondary was also disappointing allowing those easy passes to keep the chains moving

Yeah I don't see a pass rusher worth the 1st round though ... I know SteelersCanada likes Dion Jordan a lot , and I will try to make sure I catch the bowl game just to make sure I watch him...

But in the 2nd round there is some good Pass rushers available...No order

Anthony Barr - UCLA
Trevardo Williams - Conn
Brandon Jenkins - FSU
Jackson Jeffcoat - Texas
Corey Lemonier - Auburn
Jaime Collins - South Misso

I would like to Add I really starting to like this division 2 CB Robert Alford from Southeastern Louisiana, in the 4th...
a little Edit after finding this kid

1st - Matt Elam - FS - Florida
2nd - Phillip Thomas - SS - Fresno State
3rd - Gerald Hodges - OLB - Penn State
4th - Robert Alford - CB - Southeastern Lousiana
5th - Abry Jones - DE - Georgia
6th - Michael Mauti - ILB - Penn State
7th - Zac Stacy - RB - Vandy


I would like a strictly pass rusher (Dion Jordan or Anthony Barr) in the 1st and even Eddie Lacy in the 2nd ... but I just want to get the Safety position which been a huge strength over the years back to form

Matt Elam want play FS he plays to much like a SS & he's not the much of a ball hawk(from what I see on film) but he big time hitter would be a percect replacement for Troy.

but i agree on back to back safetys but if somehow Brandon jenkins falls to the 3rd round i would hope we could trade up for him he could be the steal of the whole draft then draft a player like William Gholston, DE, MSU in the 4th would be great also

1. Matt Elam, SS, Florida
2. Robert Lester, FS, Alabama
3. Brandon Jenkins, OLB, Florida State
4. William Gholston, DE, Michigan State
5. Ray Graham, RB, Pittsburgh
6. Michael Mauti, ILB, Penn State
7. Tarvarres King, WR, Georgia

Eh, I'm not sure about the CB thing. Brown obviously has not looked good, but I'm not going to let one game ruin my opinion of Allen, especially considering he looked great at times last week. Today's poor defensive outing was due to more than just crappy CB play. A CB at some point in the draft isn't a bad idea, I just don't know about 1st yet. Still think we need to take the best safety or LB available unless somebody at another position falls that we can't pass up IE DeCastro last year.

Only thing that's really changed for me in recent weeks is the need for a RB. A Knile Davis/Montee Ball/Eddie Lacy in the second or third round would be ideal.

Elam would play the FS just like Clark ... and the Ball hawk come from Phillip Thomas , he's caused so many turn overs his carrer and his name will rise by draft day ...

I do like Brandon Jenkins ... but I like Gerald Hodges better ... Brandon Jenkins is more of a pure pass rusher, while Hodges is a tackling machine , good pass rusher, and good pass coverage...

I'm still high on Allen too ... but it seems like they want him to cover the slot ... cause with Ike out you would think Allen would cover the outside man, but he didn't he was still covering the slot man, and moved Brown to the outside

I'm not sure that a CB needs to be taken before R4... I think that what we saw on Sundat can be explained by this:

1. Ike OUT
2. Keenan OUT
3. Cortez playing
4. Curtis playing... and benched
5. Josh playing... and beaten

I like Leon McFadden, SDSU (in R5... although, once people get tape on the kid, he'll likely go in R3).

Oh... and... Elam... that's all.

I would be ecstatic if the Steelers got Ray Graham late. That would be an unbelievable value pick.

I'm actually starting to like Alex Okafor ... he reminds me of Woodley ... has a great bull rush

Him and Woodley off the edge could crumble pockets with their strength ... if Woodley can stay healthy
