Courtesy of one of our main draft guru’s on SteelerAddicts – Ktrain has put together what he feels would be an ideal scenario for the Steelers draft later this month. Ktrain, along with Black@Gold Forever 32 and several others on SA spend a lot of time all during the year researching potential prospects that might fit the Steelers. I have to say quite honestly, it’s staggering how often they are correct.
RealisticallyI do not think we have a shot at Mike Pouncey who remains on top of my wish list, but here’s what i think is 1) Likely to play out 2)amazing if it played out tied together.
1) Cameron Heyward DE OSU
With such a deep DE class, especically for 5 techs I think we have a legit shot at him at 31 and at 31 it would be a STEAL.
2) Curtis Brown CB Texas
I do think that he is the best CB on the texas roster and will instantly sure up the secondary. Ike, Butler, Brown, and gay is a SOLID group of corners imo (i love butler, i dont care if theres any weight to my statement yet…there will be)
3) Lance Kendricks TE
I think it’s time for Spaeth to go, Kendricks is a pass catching TE and I think the Steelers are heavily interested in him, could be a dynamic addition to the passing game.
4) Marcus Gilbert OT Florida
Lived in the shadow of the Pounceys at Florida, but is a fine prospect in his own right. will be better than Starks imo (former gator who went in the 3rd)
5) Noel Devine RB WVU
Love me some noel devine. He bulked up impressively between the senior bowl (a dismal 165) and now hes over 180. He has elite vision, speed and strength, honestly pound for pound one of the strongest humans on the planet….the bench and squat he can throw up at his size shames all of the lineman at wvu. Hes a hell of a 3rd down back, and CAN run in between the tackles. He also has some unreal potential as a return man. Get mewelde off the roster in favor of noel.
6) DeAndre Brown WR Southern Miss
Hes my this years Mike Williams (we see how that worked out, I had mike williams mocked to us in the 5th in every mock i had last year) He would be a much better prospect if he wasn’t labeled with these “karakter konserns”. Big target, i think will make a team very happy.
7) Josh Bynes MLB Auburn
Bynes is a thumper as a MLB, hes pretty slow but makes up for it with very good instincts, could contribute as a backup and ST.
Other options that the steelers might look into include alex henery K nebraska, Rashad Carmichael CB VT, i think theres a considerable amount of interest in both of those prospects. Carmichael in the 3rd/4th, and Henery in the 6th
