Default WR/Safety in the First Round

Patterson, Cordarrelle - WR-6'3-205-Tennessee

Kenny Vaccaro - Safety-Texas

I'm skeptical on Patterson, although he has the skill set to play WR and he appears to be a playmaker (Something the Steelers desperately needs at the WR position), the guys drops way too many passes, he showboats too much as well. If he is still there in the 2nd, I would think hard about taking him though. No way is he a 1st round selection.

Vaccaro - Probably a little high on taking a Safety at #17 as well; but I've seen this guy play, he reminds me a lot of Carnell Lake. He's fearsome! He can also play a little corner if needed.

HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

I wouldn't touch Patterson in the first. He is really good but I could see him never living up to his potential as well

I like Patterson and I'd take him in the first round if he's sitting there, but there are a couple things that concern me. Only 3 games in which he had more than 4 catches is a little concerning, but that could be pointed to his Quarterback. I think the potential is there and if he's working with Scottie, he might just be able to hit that potential.

If we're going Safety in the first, it's gotta be Elam. Vaccaro won't be there.

Patterson could very well become the 1st WR off the board anyway

I think this is the perfect year to trade back ... this draft is real deep with quality players , but no real game changers especially at 17

I like this draft. If they don't pick a OLB in the first two rounds, Sean Porter is my pick.

lattimore is a risk but if he can rehab from his injury successfully that'd be a steal in rd 3. but that's always the risk you take drafting someone recovering from a major injury

but sometimes taking risks pay off, after all we took a risk on hines ward in rd. 3, who dropped because of a missing ACL. he panned out really well for us i'd say, only becoming one of the greatest steelers who ever played

I really like Vaccaro but Im also all for the BPA, especially if its a top 10 talent that slides.

Guess I'm the only one that would try to snag Tyler Wilson in the 1st.
