    Basing them on when they were draften in terms of value at the given time, plus how I like them as players.

    Too soon to really grade.......The team filled needs so that is positive now its just time for the picks to become players now....

    But with the way some are acting on here the draft is an A+ all the way.....

    Jarvis Jones the next Lawrence Taylor

    Le'Von Bell the next Eddie George

    Landry Jones the next Tom Brady

    Per Walterfootball:

    17. Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB, Georgia: A+ Grade
    This is why the same group of teams make the playoffs every year and why another group of teams always draft in the top 10. One selection after the Bills chose the No. 4 quarterback in this class, the Steelers nabbed arguably the top pass-rusher. As mentioned in my mock draft, dumb groupthink would cause Jones to fall. Pittsburgh landed a steal.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    48. Le'Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State: C Grade
    The Steelers needed a running back, so they're filling a need. But Le'Veon Bell over Eddie Lacy? That's a very questionable decision, especially considering the poor success of Big Ten backs over the years. Bell is more than a Big Ten plodder because he can block and catch the ball out of the backfield, but I wouldn't have taken him this early.

    79. Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State: A- Grade
    Surprise, surprise, another steal for Pittsburgh. Markus Wheaton was a consensus second-round prospect who shouldn't have fallen to the middle of the third frame. He'll fill a big need as a downfield receiver in the wake of Mike Wallace's departure.

    111. Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse: A Grade
    I'm pretty sure I mocked Shamarko Thomas to the Steelers in the third round, so I obviously like his value. Thomas is small, but he's a good player and should be able to start down the road once Pittsburgh's aging safeties move on.

    115. Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma: C- Grade
    I usually like Steelers picks, so it feels weird to give them a bad grade. They needed a backup quarterback, but Landry Jones is barely functional. Many people I trust believe that Jones should have gone undrafted. After all, he wasn't even used in the red zone at Oklahoma.

    150. Terry Hawthorne, CB, Illinois: B+ Grade
    The Steelers lost Keenan Lewis in free agency to the Saints, so it's no surprise that they used a mid-round pick on the cornerback position. Terry Hawthorne definitely fits the range.

    186. Justin Brown, WR, Oklahoma: C Grade
    I'm not sure I would have considered Justin Brown draftable if the draft were 10 rounds, so this is a reach. However, it's the middle of the sixth round, so that's not a huge deal at this juncture.

    206. Vince Williams, ILB, Florida State: A Grade
    Leave it to the Steelers to find a steal with the final pick in the sixth round. Vince Williams is pretty talented, and it wouldn't shock me at all if he eventually emerged as a starter.

    223. Nick Williams, DE/DT, Samford: A- Grade
    I thought Nick Williams would go a round or two earlier, so it's no surprise that Pittsburgh landed another value selection. There are some disappointing defensive ends on Pittsburgh's roster, so it wouldn't surprise me if Williams eventually was considered to be a starter.

    SS, Shamarko Thomas, 'Cuse = A
    QB, Landry Jones, Okl = F (Considering Tyler Bray and Dysert both on the board in the 7th)
    CB, Terry Hawthorne, Ill = B+
    WR, Justin Brown, Okl = D
    ILB, Vince Williams, FSU = A-
    DT, Nick Williams, Samford = ?

    A few players I would of preferred over who we got ... but I still like most of the players ... Biggest disappointment was Jones with all the QBs left , but hopefully he will be a good back up

    and Nick Williams could of been a UDFA ... and with Xavior Nixion who I think could be a great Zone blocking LG with Tackle versatility ... and Reid Fragel who can be a good back up swing tackle

    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
