Default Whos your Guy ? ( Your on the clock as steeler gm)

Assume top 10 rated talent is off the board .I would go best offensive playmaker available in the first two rounds. we need

impact now on that side of the ball. wallace gone , Miller injured . thats alot of yards

and tds to replace. Our guys never play their 1st year in our defense. Thats why i say

draft defense 3-5 rounds and coach them up coach Lebeau ,Lake, Butler , and

mitchell ! I have faith in our defensive coaches . Our offensive coaches are still a

work in progress (new O coordinator last year , new wr and oline coach this year. )

WE Need to provide some new toys for our hopefully healthy Offensive line and Ben.
1st round AUstin, Patterson , Eifert or whoever the steelers rate as bpa on offense.

if that involves trading down , im fine with that. we need alot of young bodies , the

depth of the mid and late rounds will help us groom some future steeler studs.

2nd round- Yes Le'veon Bell. If he's gone I also like Bernard or Ellington. Rooney , Colbert , and Tomlin didnt like our rb play last year. that will change.

3rd round - Phillip Thomas / Shamarko thomas , lemonier

4th round - john Simon / BPa on defense

I'm no GM... surprised?

But if I had a pick and Vacaro was there at 17 I would have trouble passing.

I disagree with going offense early, unless it's O-line. Our defense is getting old, and without having the evaluation of the younger players that Tomlin and Colbert have, I would have to say we need to fill a few spots on the defensive side of the ball.

If Geno Smith is on the board at 17 I'd have to at least give that a look.

Otherwise, Vaccaro or Mingo.

I'd edit your original post with guys the 16 guys that aren't available ahead of us so we have a launching off point. I think it would create a better discussion.

Vacarro round 1, woods at round 2, and bell at 3 and I would forgive everything that's happened this offseason

In this order: Elam, Vaccaro, Austin, Cooper, Eifert.

Vaccaro is obviously higher on most boards... except I just can't help but seeing Bob Sanders (when I see Elam play). So, to ME, Elam is the pick... but, I would not (at all) complain about Vaccaro.

Austin is so dynamic. He'll have 2100 all-purpose yards every year (a la Cribbs or Sproles or Cobb...).

Cooper adds the final piece to the O-line. (I like Foster & Beachum... but, Cooper makes this O-line the league's BEST).

Eifert (or Ertz or Escobar) makes this offense better... especially once Heath is healthy. Defenses will have headaches, when dealing with the two-TE sets.

Would you take Eifert over Hopkins and Hunter though? I don't know that I would.
