I was going to start a two week out mock yesterday. Didn't.
No criticism intended from me sir. In fact I look forward to your knowledgeable insights on potential draft prospects and I'm just sharing some observations.
I think Hightower is going to be the pick at 24 as well. Osemele is a bigger body for an IOL and could have an issue with the pulling from LG position. IMO Osemele is a RG/RT.
Mike Martin is a beast but for some reason I think the Steelers don't draft NT but they will draft someone like DE Wolfe outta cincy if he's there mid RNDs. Call it a hunch. Wolfe fits the Steelers mold for D-ends. 6'5 295 with solid production at the collegiate level. Again JMO.
I think WR is something the Steelers are certainly interested in [especially with such a deep WR draft class] and I'm going to go back to that Steeler nation debate of we need a WR with size over the shorter wirery type. Although the shorter wirey type hasn't failed us I think they try to bring in someone with size. 6'3+. Again JMO.
I fully agree with the smaller wirey quick twitch RB. I think the Steelers are looking to add some speed into the back field. A solid open field runner with the twitch to make would be tacklers miss on their first attempt.
History has shown the Steelers are always in the market for a productive pass rusher so, OLB is mixed in this draft. Surprise!
I believe we add OLine and DB depth and this draft is very deep at both. Just a matter of landing a quality prospect.
My latest mock.
1. Hightower ILB Alabama
2. Silatulo OG Midwestern State
3. Wolfe DE Cincinnati
4. McNutt WR Iowa
5. Vernon OLB Miami
