If McShays mock plays out, Warmack is another player he has dropping and cold fit into the Steelers plans as well. I can't see Jones dropping to 17. If Warmack somehow drops to 17 he would be an interesting pick for the Steelers. The OL would then be set for the next 5 years. The draft is deep with LB's and Safeties and we could well have starters or future in the first 4 rounds of the draft.

Cornerback, wide receiver and offensive tackle are all bigger needs
They are? The Steelers do not have a single OLB after Harrison. Who is going to provide the pressure and make plays? Harrison may get cut due to the cap.

WR is not a bigger need. It's about 4th on the priority list

I wouldn't say T is a pressing need, but Adams and Gilbert don't look to be LTs

CB depends on Lewis. Are there any CBs worth the 17th pick?

I genuinely feel that Pass Rusher/Safety is our biggest need(s). Next would probably be NT/RB

Its just me but I'm not a Jarvis Jomes fan and further more I don't think he will still be there at 17. I think Jarvis is a one-dimesnional Pass Rusher who is actually a long-term step down from what Harrison is. Harrison is better against the run than I believe Jones is.

I truly believe our first round pick is going to be Kenny Vaccaro. I think the Steelers will look at the overwhelming age of the position and the fact we have 0 youth behind them (not counting Mundy). Therefore personally, I view it as our biggest need despite having two quality starters.

Truthfully, the only realistic Round 1 LB I like is Kevin Minter.

He won't be dropping to us now.


US PRESSWIRE Jarvis Jones is getting a clean bill of health.

*Jarvis Jones’ neck injury is starting to look like it might be a non-issue on draft day, and there is little chance he will fall out of the top 10.

In a medical report that was sent to NFL teams, leading orthopedist Craig Brigham refutes that Jones ever had a significant spinal cord contusion. When he was at Southern Cal, the pass rusher was diagnosed with one, and Southern Cal did not allow him to play in 2010. Jones transferred to Georgia and played two seasons with no problems. Brigham concluded that Jones either had a very mild incident of spinal cord concussion or merely a stinger that has long since resolved. Even if another similar injury occurred, Brigham concluded it would not be a career ending issue.

After recently examining Jones, Brigham concluded, “Jarvis is cleared to play without restriction.”

Jarvis Jones reportedly receives good medical report

By Dan Hanzus
Around the League Writer
Published: March 10, 2013

Jones has received very good news on that front in the form of a new medical report recently sent to NFL teams. Dan Pompei of the National Football Post reported Sunday that leading orthopedist Craig Brigham concluded that Jones never had a significant spinal-cord contusion. Brigham's findings refute findings by USC doctors who diagnosed Jones with spinal stenosis in 2009.

USC wouldn't medically clear Jones, leading to the linebacker's decision to transfer.

Brigham believes Jones had a very mild incident of spinal-cord concussion or a stinger. Either way, the doctor believes the situation has long since been resolved. Jones' ability to star for two seasons at Georgia provides evidence in support of Brigham's conclusion.

Brigham said Jones could continue playing even if another similar injury occurred. He concluded: "Jarvis is cleared to play without restriction."

This won't remove all doubt from the equation, but Brigham's medical report should provide some peace of mind to teams who believe Jones can be a centerpiece of an NFL defense. Don't expect a first-round free-fall here.
