Agreed,while everyone and his brother insists that the draft class is poor I can see the Steelers shocking everyone and drafting a QB in the first or second round. The fact that the Steelers stated they wouldn't rule drafting a QB early makes you think they have been scouting and planing

I'm going to have to see the combine, then I'll give my 2 cents on this. That being said, if Jones is on the board at 17 (which is very, very unlikely) then it's a no-brainer. That being said, it'll come down to Jordan or Mingo. If one of those two is on the board, then we have to go with him. I hope both aren't because I'd hate to make that decision.

Since this is an extremely deep draft for safeties, they could wait (to my disdain)... but, I still would not be surprised is Elam/Vaccaro is the pick at 17.

When this defense has been dominant, it's had a great SS (and/or a very good tandem).

Shell... Wagner
Lake... Perry
Polamalu... Hope/Clark
Elam/Vaccaro... Swearinger/McDonald/Williams/Rambo/Jefferson
I know that I am in the minority, but I think Robert Golden can be the FS of the future with the Steelers.I think we see an OLB in the 1st, a safety in the 2nd and a WR or ILB in the 3rd.

I agree to a degree: the Steelers have always had one safety that was the "star" (Troy, Lake) and one that was a "no name", who was then developed to play with that star (Perry, Clark, even Brent Alexander).

I could be on board with Elam & Golden... but... if there's a safety like Swearinger or Rambo or McDonald available in the later rounds... (and safeties do indeed slip in R5 & R6)... it'd be hard to pass on that type of talent.

Elam & Swearinger/Rambo/McDonald would be awfully nice.

Well if there is an OLB worth taking number 1..does that mean Deebo is gone?

Chances are, whatever they decide to do with Harrison, will happen BEFORE the draft. (Teams need to be under the cap by March 12.)

That said, if the Steelers draft an OLB in R1, the could still cut Harrison (& use whatever money they save to extend Pouncey or Heath). But, chances are, if Harrison makes it past the huge amount of cuts that are coming, he'll be in Pittsburgh for next season (w/ the rookie rotating in, much like they did with Woodley as a rookie).

We should snag Jordan / Mingo / Moore in the first and grab McDonald in the second (Elam is off the board, sadly) and Rambo in the fourth. Boom goes the dynamite.

It's entirely possible that he slides to the 38 - 40th pick and the Steelers trade up to grab him. It wouldn't take a whole lot, either, which is the best thing. Something like -

To Buffalo


2nd Round Pick
5th Round Pick
2014 6th Round Pick

To Steelers

2nd Round Pick
2014 7th Round Pick

I'd do that deal in a heartbeat.
