Hoping JJ pans out but to me draft should have went
1: TE - Eifert
2: ILB - A. Brown
3: lWR - Wheaton
4A SS - S. Thomas
4B SS - P. Thomas or CB Tharold Simon
5: P - Jeff Locke
6A: trade to Tampa for Blount
6B: DE Joe Kruger
7: QB T. Bray
A lot of needs would have been filled except OLB, but hey give Worilds a chance
OLB, Jarvis Jones, Georgia = A+
RB, Le'Veon Bell, MSU = A
WR, Markus Wheaton, Ore St = A
SS, Shamarko Thomas, 'Cuse = B+
QB, Landry Jones, Okl = C
CB, Terry Hawthorne, Ill = B+
WR, Justin Brown, Okl = B+
ILB, Vince Williams, FSU = B
DT, Nick Williams, Samford = B
An awwing stati heard this morning...
Regarding Bell. Almost 1000 yards last season after contact! Wow!
Vince Williams has a chance to become the starting Buck linebacker in 2014 or 2015. Big time thumper who is a leader. Only a 2 down linebacker but tremendous value in the 6th round. London Fletcher type ILB.
Best value pick the Steelers made.
I like this pick. I think it was made with December and January football in mind. Kid played in Michigan and knows all about the elements. Has Lacy ever even seen snow?

Knil Davis went high in the third, no way bell would have been there at our pick. it was a good and wise choice.
This is a good solid pick.
Jones B not sold on him....sorry
Bell B+ I think he will be our starter by mid season
Wheaton A Love it
Thomas A Great pick
Jones B- Not a sexy pick but when all said and done it is good
Hawthorne A- like the potential
Brown C should have grabbed another WR instead of Jones in 4th
V Williams A great value....I see him as a starter for us in 3 years
N Williams B Nice value
I see us filling our OL depth chart with a few vets this year. I know we traded our 3rd to Cleveland next year for Thomas but really it was for Jones......feels like a wasted pick.
