Vaccaro, Austin or Eifert

With Vaccaro, I think it will take longer for a return on investment due to the system in place, but in the long run, he will be the best player. With Eifert, I think we get the most immediate impact and with Austin, the most upside (as well as risk).

I like Vaccaro as well but I believe he might sit for a while so I'm going with Eddie Lacy. Lacy is far more complete than any other RB in the draft and the Steelers are in desperate need of guys they can play right now. The Steelers struggled very badly on offense last year,I think it's worth spending the pick to get a guy that will make the Steelers a balanced,feared offensive threat again.

I have this feeling that Lacy is going to be a 700-800 yard guy like Ingram.

That is a tough choice. (Good thread.)

Vaccaro is a logical response, but Austin is a "one of a kind" type of player, and Warper Coomack would probably be the BPA.

Everybody loves a mock.

Would you take Elam at 17 or only in a trade-down?

Elam... what... why do you ask? LOL

You know, I know that I am really high on him, and that Jon Cyprien might actually go before him, but the Cowboys, Bengals, Rams, Packers, and the Taperiots could all use a SS. So, if the Steelers want him, they just might have to take him at 17.

If they traded back a few spots, it would be a risk... but, if they could have Swearinger & an extra R3 pick (as opposed to just Elam), it might be worth the risk. The ideal scenario would be to trade back a few spots (to 25) and acquire a R3 pick, while STILL getting Elam.
