Let me start by saying that I'm far from a draft expert, but I do think I'm above average. Now, how far above average is debatable. I didn't use any player rankings for this, I just went with my own opinion. I know many will not agree with my picks and that's to be expected, but please don't just say "it sucks" or "you're an idiot" etc. I'm hoping to put up a Steelers mock draft before 8pm tonight, but I don't know if I'll get it done in time. I'm not going to explain my picks since everyone knows all of these players pretty much already. So, here's my first ever first round mock draft.
