My Early Mock Draft
Obviously, I'll change my mind on some, or most, of these choices after the Senior Bowl and Combine. However, for now, here's my early mock draft for the Steelers. I've listed 2 possible choices for each pick.
1ST ROUND - Manti Te'o OR Arthur Brown
2ND ROUND - Eddie Lacy OR Kenny Vaccaro
3RD ROUND - Ryan Swope OR Denard Robinson
4TH ROUND - DeVonte Holloman OR Michael Buchanan
5TH ROUND - Duke Williams OR Levine Toilolo
6TH ROUND - Tyrann Mathieu (I know this is a risky pick) OR Craig Roh
7TH ROUND - Robbie Rouse OR Collin Klein
There you go. I used CBSSportsline.com's player rankings and I don't know when they were last updated. So, let me know what you think.
I've Done a few practice mocks... But i have yet to put my up my official pre-combine/senior bowl mock...
I have to say tho if we get the Te'O, Lacy, Swope in the first 3 rounds would be unbelievable, I also love the Duke williams pick too.
In the 4th id take Trevardo Williams if he was there still over Holloman.
Tyrann Mathieu is interesting i mocked him to us around that pick in some of my mocks too but in light of recent events with Rainey and our other off the field issues i find it hard to believe the steelers are going to take risks this yr with players that have off the field issues. Even tho Mathieu if he gets his shit together and was picked up that late and not early by a desperate team that would be a super steal...
Collin klein would be interesting hes not a great thrower but he can manage... His rushing ability could give us some options at making designed QB runs. For short yardage goal line plays... Tricks plays as well. would be a good situational player.
I'd take Johnathan Jenkins over Teo every day of the week and twice on Sundays. Teo is overrated.
