I don't think Tavon Austin is the best receiver in this class. Far from it. He might be the best playmaker in this class, but he's not the best receiver.

Hopkins, Hunter, Woods, Rogers and Dobson are better receivers than Austin. They might not have the electric play ability that Austin has, but one-on-one against CBs like Webb or Haden, I'd rather have any of those 5 on the line than Tavon.

I'm going with who i think the Steelers choose. If Jarvis Jones is still on the board when it comes our time - there is NO way we're passing on him, not a chance.
If he's gone, i hope Vaccaro is still there.

I voted for Warmack, because it's hard to pass up what would likely be the best player available at a position of need. But I gotta say, Eifert is really tempting; a quality TE could solve so many short and long-term problems!

The Steelers have enough needs that any player listed in the poll would be a good enough addition (in theory).

However, considering all practical and/or long term purposes, Vaccaro would seem to be the best fit (followed by Austin and Jones).

It's so hard to say. How can we pick just one? So many areas of need, so many good candidates... Eifert? Lacy? Austin, maybe?

Almost the entire poll was of offensive players in a year when defense will be drafted first. Nice job.

3 out of 8 are defense. That's not "almost all offense." Who else on defense is worthy of a 17 pick that has a chance of still being there?

Why don't you make a poll of all defensive players since our offense isn't designed to score points anyway?

then if they're both gone? I'm not sure, could be Moore if he's still there, could be a surprise pick, i don't know.
One thing is for sure - aside from QB's - its a great pool of talent this year and someone projected to go top 10, top 15, is sure to slide down to when we're ready. So barring a trade-down, i think we'll end up getting a good #1 this year.
