Heres my short list of guys i like for the steelers by round, this is assuming the steelers pick around 25.

1st Round

Bryan Bulaga LT, Iowa
I think he declares this year, which is a pretty good year for OTs. He would be the #1 guy next year, but alot of juniors are being pressured into declaring this year because of rookie cap issues. Hes a combination of Joe Thomas and Jake Long, both are pro bowlers

Ciron Black LT, LSU
I have a soft spot for LSU linemen, both O and D....i dont know why, i hate LSU. But black has been slipping down alot of boards and im not sure why. Hes a top notch prospect imo.

Terrence Cody NT, Bama
Cody is a big fat man, but as a NT hes the type of player that will be a huge man that takes up alot of blockers....he will play forever. A guy in the mold of Ted Washington, however hes trimming down to be more than a 2 down run stuffer

Phil Taylor NT, Baylor
More of a Shaun Rogers NT, he is explosive and has the ability to penetrate to creat havoc for teams

Brandon Spikes MLB, Florida
MLBs are iffy in the draft. HE could go top 10 like patrick willis, or he could go late first early second like poz, maualuga, lauranitis, ect. He would be ideal to replace Farrior. Having one MLB who is a hammer and can blow up guards like spikes and one that is so fast, a great pass rusher and a great coverage guy like timmons...you have the perfect duo.

Corey Wootton, OLB/DE, Northwestern
Interesting prospect....6-7 he could be a full time DE pass rusher, but he could be a 34OLB since hes such a great athlete. But an interesting scenerio woudl be him as a weak side DE in the 34. He would be a playmaker in that spot, especially since harrison would make up for his lacking in the run game. Bruce Matthews has all his sacks in a 34, 34 ends dont HAVE to be run stuffing studs all the time, they just need to be better than evander hood.

Patrick Robinson CB, Florida State
Im usually against Corners in the first round, but DB might be enough of a concern. Ike isnt young anymore, townsend is on him last leg and gay has some work to do. Robinson is better than Joe Haden....Haden is trash

Brandon Ghee CB, Wake Forest
Is a very aggressive corner that i think will shoot up the draft boards

Rounds 2/3

Brandon Graham OLB, Michigan
Better prospect than woodley, its possible the steelers wont want to extend woodley....which sucks, but graham could step in from day one.

George Selvie OLB/DE, South Florida
One of my favorite players, has no had the senior season many hoped for but historically is a sack machine and in a year littered with great DE prospects he is bound to slip a little. Would be good in both kinds of defense....which after timmons and hood, seems to be the kind of guy tomlin looks for.

Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
A mammoth guard......and not only that he is exactly what i look for in a guard. He is a tackle that cant cut it at tackle, and he seems to know that. It depends on what we do along the oline with how the team views essex and what they decide to do with colon.

Sam Young RT, Notre Dame
Never will be able to play on the left but is a stud prospect on the right. Hes like a white Gosder Cherilus to me in that regard

JD Walton C, Baylor
The top center by most this year, we need one and Walton has the stones in his pants to hold his own against some of the AFC north NTs...Matt Tennent, and Ted Larsen are also guys that warrant a look at center

Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee
Is another NT im looking at, hes a pretty versatile Dlinemen.

Boo Robinson, NT, Wake Forest
Hes explosive and a disruptive force...he will be shooting up draft boards after a solid senior season. Wake has been delivering some quality defensive talent



rounds 3-7 coming

my early fav is Terrence Cody NT, Bama... big boy, best and possibly only true 3-4 DT in the draft. I dont see us keeping Hampton.

Awesome breakdown.

Train, Starks signed 4 years for pretty good money, you still think a first round LT is vital? I see OLB and NT, if we dont resign Hampton, as big needs.

Zachintosh66
11-19-2009, 11:18 PM
OLB? early? Woodley and Silverback arent going anywhere...

K Train
11-20-2009, 12:06 AM
starks sucks, and colon is gonna command top dollar. if we drafted a LT and started him on the right it would be perfect.

woodley is having a down year, he might not be extended and harrison is 31 going on 32....hes old, i wouldnt rule out a top pass rushing OLB

cmerrifield
11-20-2009, 06:59 AM
Even if Woodley is extended it takes some guys a year to get the system, we need backups at OLB and I think they will extend Woodley because he will be an RFA, as well as Colon if no agreement is made, so that will help the OL keep Colon one more year. So anyway, I see OLB as a pretty significant need, as well as NT either way with Hampton because he is old too.

11-20-2009, 07:04 AM
Ciron Black seems to fall on a lot of mocks right now. I've seen places where we could pick him up in the second, which would be the steal of the year. I doub it'll happen tho - Come combine, he'll school people all day long. I don't see us getting Cody. He is going mid-late first round on many mocks, but he is going to be a top 15 imo. There is just way to many teams trying to work out the 3-4 system to actually pass on this guy.

I could see us going MLB actually... I would love that pick. It would, other than getting farrior a replacement, make us more dangerous on blitzing, because we could use Timmons in other ways than the normal MLB duty.

Im still not sold on a first round CB.

George Selvie in second would be a steal imo, but man id love it. Wootton would rock too, and Tomlin seems to like drafting LBs, so why not..

K Train
11-20-2009, 02:11 PM
ciron black has not had the season many hoped for. he was the #1 prospect at his position for a while but has really conceded that to okung and williams, imo hes still third among seniors and will have great workouts. if bulaga declares he will be 4th though, theres a chance we we have a legitimate shot at getting him and starting him on the right side and either let colon walk or bump him in where he belongs

darnik44
11-26-2009, 09:18 AM
Keep an eye on Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee. He impresses me more each time I watch him. With Casey Hampton likely gone next season the Steelers have a pretty big need at NT. I think once things shake out Williams would be a good value between picks 20 and 32.

Any thoughts on C.J. Spiller with Willie Parker likely gone? He could be a compliment back and also a possible replacement for Stefon Logan to save a roster spot.

Also keep an eye on the top CB prospects. Willie Gay is a slot corner, not a starter. This CB class isn't very great though. The best value might be in rounds 2-4 for a CB.

K Train
11-26-2009, 07:39 PM
i like dan williams, i dont really consider him a round one kind of guy though...not yet at least.

i would rather have dwyer than spiller.....thunder and lighting is overrated, give me thunder and earthquake

Silverback
11-27-2009, 01:26 PM
34 ends dont HAVE to be run stuffing studs all the time, they just need to be better than evander hood. lol.

As far as NT's go at this point i think I'm leaning towards Cousin Phil rather than Cody, like most other people Cody's effort and conditioning concern me and I don't think Tomlin will be a fan either. However, everyone is so high on 3-4 nose prospects nowadays either of the guys may not be realistic assuming we do end up in that 22-28 slot.

JensK

Phil may fall... Troubled background normally makes people fall.

Dwyer's my favorite back coming out next year, but because of that reason I doubt we get him. On a related note, where is Trindon Holliday suppose to fall in the draft? Any chance we get him?

JensK
11-30-2009, 01:07 PM
After watching this game, i would go kinda crazy if they went RB in the first round. SO many obvious needs infront of RB imo.

V_83
11-30-2009, 02:04 PM
Well, so would I, but I wasn't sure if Holliday was supposed to go in the first round or not. I assumed he should, I was just hoping he wasn't supposed to.

jpele
11-30-2009, 02:17 PM
I was one of the NT guys until the last two games. We're in dire need of a CB.

V_83
11-30-2009, 07:35 PM
Yeah, I would say DB's, OT and a NT are key areas for next season.

JensK
12-05-2009, 10:57 AM
I was going to ask about Brandon Ghee, but figures you already listed him. With a little luck, he be around in the second round, depending on how many teams is going to need a CB, and Ghee seems to be a pretty good CB... Good teq. and good awareness, and what makes him special is his very good run-support (which is why they drafted K. Lewis too btw)... He would be a good addition to our DBs..

Although i havnt seen him play, a lot of guys are pretty high on Anthony Davis. Any info in him? He seems pretty big, at least when you look at his numbers..

V_83
12-06-2009, 04:21 PM
After the last couple of weeks, especially today, our draft should be pretty DB heavy.

im liking Nate Allen from south florida more and more....he could easily be mentioned in the top 30 prospects but with such a strong safety class hes a second round guy for sure imo

im gonna get around to a full list of my guys for each position and round soon

JensK
12-07-2009, 11:27 AM
How about Donovan Warren? Is he any good? He is going first early second on some boards right now

K Train
12-07-2009, 01:14 PM
Warren is good, one of the better corner prospects, hes leaning towards declaring, i like him more than lets say joe haden.

i will have a full list soon on DBs

Do you guys know anything about Gerald McCoy DT for Oklahoma? Scout.Inc has Eric Berry at #1, McCoy at #2, and Suh at #3. I watched Suh play last weekend against Texas and I wasn't aware that there is anyone out there better than him. Is McCoy that good?

K Train
12-08-2009, 04:09 PM
no....mccoy will be the second DT but when it comes down to it suh is the best one, and the best player in college football period.

although Berry is the best pro prospect imo

suh and mccoy were neck and neck for a while, but suh takes the title

Black@Gold Forever32
12-08-2009, 07:18 PM
I would like to see Suh win the Heisman but I don't think it will happen......

12-08-2009, 09:59 PM
If Arians is fired does anyone thing the Steelers will 1 get back to Steelers football and 2. draft a real FB?

I know they have Summers but I'm not sure if he is a real FB. I know others have mentioned Fui Vakapuna but he is on the Bengals roster and probably won't be leaving if he is that good.

If you guys think the Steelers might draft a FB anyone have an idea of maybe who?

--- Added 12/8/2009 at 08:59 PM ---

I am with you Black@Gold Forever32 I hope Suh wins the Heisman. I doubt it will happen either but he deserves it.

Here's a Steelers mock...

13 Pittsburgh Steelers - Anthony Davis, OT, 6-6, 330, Rutgers*
The Steelers go with the BPA and fill a need. Davis can spend a year developing as the future LT while providing much needed depth. Max Starks has been servicable, but inconsistant and certainly not great. Looking to the near future, now is the time to sure up this position hopefully long term.

45 Pittsburgh Steelers - Morgan Burnett, SS/FS, 6-1, 200, Georgia Tech*
The Steelers get a very good value here with Burnett. Burnett could be a much needed "ball-hawking" safety who could go a long way in helping get the most out of Troy Polamalu. The Steelers have two young CB prospects who have a lot of potential, but the jury is still out onin Joe Burnett and Keenan Lewis. If all goes well, the Steelers could have a solid young secondary. Add to that a little improvement in the front seven and the Steelers defense is back.

77 Pittsburgh Steelers - Joe McKnight, RB, 6-0, 200, Southern California*
This could be one of those picks in the draft that ends up being a steal. The contrasting running style Joe McKnight has to Rashard Mendenhall could be a very nice tandem. McKnight could be a Felix Jones type of player who gets 5 carries, catches a pass and returns a few kicks each week. McKnight would provide that home run threat they once had with Willie Parker.

4th Round Pittsburgh Steelers - Michael Pouncey, OG, 6-5, 312, Florida*

Its tough to guess too much right now, since we don't know where we will land, but i would like to see either of these two scenarios:

First pick: CB Joe Haden

He might not be a shutdown CB, but he is the best CB in the draft, and its become pretty obvious that we need one, so you might as well get the best there is available. And since we are projected to pick 13th overall, i think its very possible that he'll be on the board here. He is a pretty good ball-hawk, and he knows how to take the ball to the house too. I like what he brings to the table. I don't think hes got 13th pick overall value, but again - we have to address it.

Second Pick: OT Ciron Black

Black has not had the year many thought he would have, and he is falling in the rankings. He could very well be there to pick up in the second round, which would bring some good depth, and with the right coaching, he could be a dominating LT eventually. He could probably start RT from day one, and then move Colon to guard (which we all know will never happen, but i like the idea).

Third Round: S Nate Allen

Clarks contract ends this year, and while he is very entertaining to watch with all his big hits, he is only good when Polamalu is in the save his ***. I don't think they'll try to resign him. This will leave a gapping hole in the safety position, and Nate Allen is a stud. He is good in coverage, a good tackler and good against the run. He is a steal in the third round imo, but he will probably fall that far, depending on his combine.

Fourth: OG Michael Pouncey

I don't know much about the guy really, but when both Train and Darnik likes him, he is probably great value in the fourth round, and OG depth is a need.



The not so likely, but highly intriguing edition:

I for one think that Berry will fall to 5th spot overall, which is unfair because he should be taken first overall, but teams just have more pressing needs, which leads me to hope that Steelers could trade Clark and Hampton for the Chiefs pick, and then snack Eric Berry. With a little luck, either Taylor or Dan Williams could fall to the second round, which would allow us to pick up a very good NT in the second round. For our third round, i would like to see some sort of o-line player, or just go with Darniks thrid and fourth round picks.

Ciron Black has gone from a potential first round LT to likely a late 3rd to mid 4th round RT.

The Steelers would have to re-sign Clark and Hampton to trade them. I have also considered the Steelers trading up also. But who do they trade? I know this won't happen, but I would be in favor of trading Ziggy Hood, Lawrence Timmons, Limas Sweed, 2010 2nd round pick, and 2011 2nd round pick for a 2010 Top 5 pick. With the 2 first round picks they could get Eric Berry and Anthony Davis, and then either Rashad Jones, Nate Allen, Major Wright, or T.J. Ward (all free safeties) in the 3rd round.

1 Taylor Mays, 6-3, 230, Southern California
*

Taylor Mays is way too stiff in coverage. He really is too big to be a safety, I'm thinking a Thomas Davis like move to LB for him.

I agree he's definetly not a FS, but I do think he could be an in the box SS similar to Polamalu. That said, Mays isn't even close to being the player Polamalu is.
