    7th - CB Nigel Malone
    im not sure the bengals would do business with the steelers and vice versa...but if they did, i like hunter and amerson an aful lot.

    Hodges would be a nice pickup

    id prefer stephen taylor at RB but id take Gillisslee

    its the Lemenior pick that bothers me, theres gotta be better pass rushers available and i think brandon jenkins could be that guy

    Yeah I don't think the Bengals would either ... and not so sure I would like doing business with them either ... Just was using the scenerio ...

    Lemenior is a ok pick to me ... I like him , but not sold on him ... Jenkins is another guy too only thing with him is he is so big I question his ability to drop back in zones ,

    Gillisslee was my favorite RB in this draft but Joseph Randel is really growing on me and I think he fits Haley scheme better

    I agree, I also agreed with the notion that the Steelers have done VERY well with their 1st rounders in over the last decade (-Hood who is a SO-SO player at best). Its not too often the Steelers have a pick in the top 20. I could see trading back to land a guy like Manti Te'o if the likes of Kevin Minter are gone. ILB is going to be priority. Alot is going to depend on FA. The Steelers could be pretty bare at RB and PROVEN WR after FA this year. Entering the season with Dwyer at RB and Brown, Sanders and Plex/Cotchery at Wr means they COULD use for some extra picks in this draft, and I truley bleive you dont need to draft a RB or WR in the first round if your the Steelers. Thats why i think moving BACK in the first, still getting a high value guy at a position of need (ie: Manti Te'o in the 20's) plus adding a 3rd rounder would be a better move than trading out of the 1st.

    I agree with trading back not out. However if Warmack is there you take him. I'd like Minster, Vacarro,Teo, Ertz & Eifert.

    I have never been a fan of trading down. I think this year we have to make the most of the first 3 picks.

    Trading Down gives us 4 picks in 3 rounds. This draft is reminding me of the year the took Hood. The Steelers dropped back in that draft. Not the greatest example for KTrain.( He hates Hood)

    Still don't like trading down. Wonder who was selected in our original slot when we traded down for Hood. What did we gain? Hood is a bust, IMHO.
