[QUOTE=teegre;1103984]After Dee Milliner, there is not a CB that I really think I would "have" to have. There are a lot of good CBs, but none that are great.

That's how I feel about Eddie Lacy.

Minnesota also looking to move up.

If the right guy is there, we could be in luck.

Alas, Austin will likely be gone by 17.

But, if he is indeed there, trading back to 23, while acquiring a R3 pick would allow the Steelers to address four needs (as opposed to merely three). I see S and LB being addressed no matter what, and then either WR or RB... getting an extra pick allows that to be a WR and a RB.

They may like Patterson.

Although, breaking news: Fuck Tyrann Mathieu. If this story is true, of course:

Quote:
There is an interesting story that surfaced in a recent ESPN the Magazine profile of former LSU Tigers defensive back Tyrann Mathieu. Mathieu was one of LSU’s most dynamic players during his time with the team, but it appears that the last game that he played for the Tigers, the BCS National Championship game against Alabama in 2012, he didn’t even want to be there.

Mathieu reportedly was telling his girlfriend “I don’t even want to play,” leading up to the game.

That could certainly be a problem moving forward.

If Mathieu wasn’t interested in playing the biggest game of his career, can NFL teams be sure he has a passion to play the game?

Mathieu hasn’t played a football game since, but he seems to have really changed his life for the better and he’s working hard to get himself back on the right track. Hopefully during his time away from the game, Mathieu once again found his passion. The fact that he was so disinterested in the national championship game could be more troublesome to teams than the fact that he reportedly failed more than ten drug tests.

We will find out where Mathieu is selected next week during the 2013 NFL Draft. As it stands now, he should hear his name called near the third-round.

Of course he did not want to be there. Bam Morris, Nate Newton, and Todd Marinovich were waiting in a van down the street.

Bires: Steelers' pick is anyone's guess

Posted: Monday, April 22, 2013
By Mike Bires

PITTSBURGH -- Itís been a long time since the Steelers went into the NFL Draft with so much uncertainty. With so many holes to fill, itís hard to pinpoint who theyíll select with their first-round pick.

We know for sure it wonít be a quarterback. Ben Roethlisberger may be 31, but heís still the face of the franchise.

It wonít be an offensive or defensive lineman. There have been enough of them taken in the first round the last four years (Ziggy Hood, 2009; Maurkice Pouncey, 2010; Cameron Heyward, 2011; David DeCastro, 2012).

And itís not going to be a running back, even though the Steelers need one.
Other than those positions, itís wide open.

With the 17th choice, a case can be made for a wide receiver, inside and outside linebacker, safety, cornerback and tight end.

In a draft not exactly loaded with canít-miss prospects, itís anybodyís guess who the Steelers will take. Thereís no consensus pick among the mock drafts.

With eight picks in this weekís draft, the Steelers have already identified who they believe are the top 150 players. Of that group, general manager Kevin Colbert believes there are six to eight ďwho we think are special.Ē

Unless there are major surprises when the first 16 picks are made Thursday night, the Steelers will select one of the special players on Colbertís list.

Colbert, whoís never had a true first-round bust in his first 12 years with the Steelers, believes thereís plenty of potential in Rounds 2 through 4. But itís always the first-round pick that creates the most excitement and fanfare. Thatís why the NFL reserves Day 1 of the three-day draft for only the first round.

Last year, it was quarterbacks who dominated Round 1. Four of the first 22 picks were QBs (Andrew Luck, No. 1; Robert Griffin III, No. 2; Ryan Tannehill, No. 8; and Brandon Weeden, No. 22). This year, the only quarterback projected as a first-rounder is West Virginiaís Geno Smith.

Thatís OK with the Steelers, who are set with Roethlisberger and Bruce Gradkowski as his backup.

But with speedster Mike Wallace gone via free agency, the Steelers desperately need help at wide receiver.

The Steelers always have an eye out for pass-rushing outside linebackers, and with James Harrison now on the Bengalsí roster, thatís a position that needs an upgrade.

Likewise at inside linebacker, with Larry Foote another year older and Sean Spence, a third-round choice last year, trying to bounce back from a knee injury that wiped out his rookie season.

Ryan Clark turns 34 in October and 32-year-old Troy Polamalu only played seven games last year due to injuries, so thereís a need for safety help especially after backups Will Allen and Ryan Mundy werenít re-signed.

With Heath Miller still mending from major knee surgery, itís uncertain when heíll be able to play again. So, tight end is certainly a first-round option.

ďThere will be a good player at 17, thereís no question about that,Ē Colbert said.

PLAYERS STEELERS MIGHT DRAFT

Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia
Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
Alexander Ogletree, ILB, Georgia
Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington
Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
