My Mock Draft
Some may like it, some won't LOL
Round One: Eddie Lacy
A reach? Maybe but by the time his career is done = bargain.
I do think about Andre Ellington and Montree Ball but Lacy fills serious need and won't be like a Mendenhall.
Round Two: Jonathan Cyprien
I'm telling you, this guy's the **** and I love how well-rounded he is, he's not just a box safety and would be suitable to replace Clark
Round Three: Cobi Hamilton
Roethlisberger gets a big bodied receiver, a target in the redzone and can start alongside Antonio Brown.
Round Four: TJ McDonald
The Steelers grab their second safety of the draft, filling up two needs
Round Five: Travis Kelce
We don't know when Heath's back, so it's necessary to just draft a fill in
Round Six: Nico Johnson
Probably won't fall out of the first five rounds but he's insurance to F00te and Timmons.
Round Seven: A defensive end
Won't pretend to know most of the prospects, this dude won't even start or be relevant in 3 years time LOL
Cyprien is definitely a box safety lol.....i would prefer Elam or Shimarko in the second over Cyprien.

I also think you need to bump McDonald and Kelce up at least a full round
lol ok switch hamilton and mcdonald around then?
reason why i took lacy in 1st round is that he's gone in by the end of the 1st.
you could probably put hamilon in the round 6 range lol
I love McDonald as a centerfield S, he is good against the run and has a good break on the ball and excellent size. I think its nearly a lock the steelers take rontez miles from Cal-PA though in the later rounds too. All tatted up with the steeler logo, they have a soft spot for that ****.
I like Davis Bass as a late round DE sleeper. Played at western missouri state, but hes good tools to work with for a 5 Tech. AJ Francis from Maryland is another one
Lacy would be a huge reach, and wouldn't even be the ideal fit for the new blocking schemes being installed. Do people really not realize we are going to be a Zone Blocking scheme up front?

I like Cobi, but would be disappointed if the best pass catcher we added in this draft was a 3rd rounder like Hamilton, we need to make a bigger move at WR
Drafting MacDonald and Cyprien, is kind of doubling down. I wouldn't want both of them on the field together.
exactly amerson and mcdonald, or elam and mcdonald would be better
I like Lacy too.... a lot. However, it's hard not to agree with Bill Parcells who said something like- in the early rounds, you seek out the QB rushers and the QB protectors.
I hope we get a great edge rusher in this draft, especially if we can't work something out with James H.
lacy is good but not in zone we need a cut back guy
hamilton has arrests in college so he won't be considered
Lacy can play in both. The Steelers will use both. More zone but they won't abandon their bread n butter plays.
