    i find it very difficult to rattle off what picks are going to compensate for a pick being traded. Its impossible to predict. Ive thought out 2 pretty simple scenerios, but id rather not trade down in almost all cases I am not really a good person to ask. Id be MUCH more inclined to trade into the first from the second, or into the second from the 3rd to grad a guy rather than drop down...thats risky business to me.

    But yeah, knowing whos on the board is very important....im sure theres a guy id draft at 17 between jones, star, mingo, patterson, allen, hopkins, vaccaro, cooper, warmack

    Jones and Patterson are really the only two that I really want of that group.....if both gone I do think the Steelers could trade down and still end up with Hopkins......I won't complain about Cooper or Warmack at 17 but I really don't want Mingo, Vaccaro at all.......

    Keenan Allen is a mystery to me on where he will go...I could see him being the first WR drafted or the third WR being drafted in the first round.......I also like Allen......

    Mingo was early favorite but I have come to the reality that he will be a top 10 pick. Damn I wish the stains had beaten us the last game.

    I am still leaning to Cooper.

    Omarius Hines is almost like Hines Ward in the sense that he's a jack of all trades type guy. He's got decent speed and explosiveness, nice hands, not very shifty but he's pretty strong. He's a tough guy to gauge. He's played RB, WR, FB, TE, he's played on special teams and has done some work in fake punt situations. I definitely see him as a slot/possession guy but I could honestly see a team try to convert him to RB or see if he can put on some weight and be a Hernandez type tweener at the TE position. Obviously he'd have to put on at least 15 lbs in that case, which is obviously easier said than done, but I could see it. At this point I'd say UDFA that could sneak into the 7th based on his versatility. I'd imagine he'd be a guy that gets some decent interest in from camps if he does go undrafted (which is probably most likely).

    Another guy I'll be keeping an eye on is Dan Matha, Tackle from IUP. Mostly just because he's a family friend lol. He got a scholarship to Pitt but transferred to IUP after a couple seasons. He's the biggest dude I've ever seen in person. 6-7 310 of muscle. Not a lot of fat on him. He's told us he's gotten some interest from a couple teams. He won't be drafted but he could make it into a camp as an UDFA.

    He's a funny *** dude. I'll never forget watching the 2008 draft with him bashing every tackle taken before Otah in the first (he was a red shirt freshman at Pitt in 08)

    They now signed Asomugha and Boldin they may not need anymore picks. they are set for the SB already. do they have more money still to sign a higher draft pick? lol

    We could use the picks in a trade with them.

    We are not in the same game right now... Build our OL and OLB/DL and look ahead for 2014... ???

    i could definitely see that, we are a sucker for bloodlines. Hes just not in the same character mold as some of the other Longs. Hes ranked as a guard by a lot of people, i think thats kinda a waste, being hes so athletic and 6-7

    His agility drills are unreal times, he can definitely find a home as a slot WR. Seems like a project, but his skill set translates perfectly if he can show he has the toughness to play the slot

    Definitely a project. But on the other hand, I believe he does have the toughness to play the slot, and unlike some he's willing to play wherever he's needed.
