NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that Steelers GM Kevin Colbert would "love" Michigan S Jabrill Peppers at pick No. 30.
Kinkhabwala hears that the Steelers will be selecting either the best available corner or safety at that slot in the first round. Peppers' draft range is a rather wide one that could see him off the board as early as the teens or as late as the second round, so it is somewhat difficult to state with any sort of certainty whether he will still be around at the 30th pick for the Steelers' drafting pleasure.

A birdie told me Colbert is not the only one who likes Peppers at 1.30. Apparently. Who knows what is disinfo at this stage.

Normally, I think the Steelers are pretty straightforward this time of year-- we always try to read too much into it. But, damn, their words and actions this draft season are pretty much incomprehensible, unless you think they have zero interest in Jordan Willis or Tyus Bowser, and are set on taking a QB at 1.30. They also seem more inclined to take a safety than a CB-- which I'm more or less on board with, depending on how the board falls.

She is the same Aditi Kinkhabwala who lied about AB's "pouting" in the AFCCG. Not a fan.

Taco Charlton - DL - Wolverines
Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Michigan edge rusher Taco Charlton is meeting with the Detroit Lions on Friday.
The Lions hold the No. 21 pick in Round 1. Rap Sheet additionally reports that Charlton met with the Cowboys earlier this week. He has previously checked in with the Saints, Ravens, Cardinals, Titans and Steelers. One NFL scout who spoke with Bob McGuinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel earlier during the evaluating process comped the 6-foot-6, 270-pounder to Cardinals LB Chandler Jones, noting that "things come easy to him." His stock range is a wide one, as it wouldn't surprise if Charlton landed in the top-20 on Day 1, nor would it surprise if he slid into Round 2.

So would the interest be to replace Mitchell or the kid they literally just drafted in the 2nd round last year?

When is Mitchell's contract up?

immediate replacement for Robert Golden/Jordan Dangerfield, who played a lot of snaps in big nickel/dime.

At a minimum.......I've seen Mayock pick Peppers for the Steelers

Mayock got DeCastro correct for us

I've personally thought he goes before we pick, but I'm no Mel Kiper.

I'm way behind on tape scrubbing due to my job and life getting in the way.

I'm in the minority, but I like Peppers.

Salt too....PUSH IT REAL GOOD

I'd rather take Jones in the 2nd or Evans in the third. Peppers seems like a lot of hype.

Taco Charlton is the player who intrigues me the most in this draft. I have no idea what to make of him.

He has showed constant improvement...He is a football playing Jesse. He moves pretty well...Actually really well for a 270 pounder

Where does he fit in a 34? Maybe dumps 5-10 pounds and plays OLB...Maybe adds 10 pounds and plays 5 Tech.

Peppers had zero pass defensed last year..1 Int. I view Peppers as a major gamble

Peppers will not start until November at best. A safety with 13PD and 1 INT in 3 years means he is getting by on athletic ability.

Didn't Peppers mainly play LBer last year?

He basically spied the QB on pass plays and played the run downhill.

Yes but safety his first 2 years. I think his soph season was injury shorten

Peppers is probably going to be a "redshirt" for whoever drafts him. He needs a lot of work. He's not great in coverage.

Give me Melifonwu or Jordan Willis in the first. T.J. Watt if he slides.

The Sporting News' Eric Galko passes along that Missouri edge rusher Charles Harris has received "multiple" top-10 grades.
Galko, himself, expects Harris to be drafted within the first 15 picks. The analyst pegs his draft ceiling as high as the No. 6 pick to the Jets and does not believe that the 6-foot-3, 260-pounder will fall further than the Colts at No. 15. Not everybody sees matters so ebulliently. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, for one, did not have Harris sliding off the board until pick No. 58 (to the Seahawks) in his most recent four-round mock draft. We would tend more toward Galko's assessment of Harris as a potential top-15 pick than we would Pauline's more conservative second-round evaluation.



One NFL executive believes that Western Michigan WR Corey Davis might slide to the second round.
"I like Corey Davis as a player, but he's been out of sight, out of my mind in the spring," the executive said, adding that "[t]he fact that he won't run a 40 isn't a huge deal but it could impact the thinking of some teams around the league." We have heard these kinds of rumblings over the past few weeks. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder has been largely unable to participate in the pre-draft process due to a minor ankle surgery he underwent in February. Davis was mocked in the top-10 during some industry exercises this winter, though, and could end up being one of the steals of the draft if he does, indeed, take a little tumble.



PFT's Mike Florio cites a source saying Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon could be waiting to hear his name called beyond rounds two and three.

"At least one source has suggested that Mixon possibly won’t be drafted at all," Florio writes. Interesting. The general sentiment seems to be that Mixon winds up in round two or even with the Saints possibly at No. 32. Each team will have to have owner clearance, and a few have received that on the second day. Teams likely believe the media attention will be the same wherever and whenever he will be drafted.

I like to check in with Walterfootball but they have jumped the shark this year. Walter says we take the ND Quarterback in the 1st.

finally have gotten a chance to pay some attention to folks other than just UW Huskies.

Charles Harris, Jabril Peppers, and Kizer all scare the fuck out of me, in the same way that Jarvis Jones scared the fuck out of me pre-draft. i.e. I hate the player, think he's going to bust, and I really fear the Steelers will pick him(them)
Harris will be long gone. Neither Colbert nor Tomlin attended ND pro day, nor did they schedule a private workout... chances are good that Kizer will not be the pick at 1.30.

Peppers? They were at his pro day-- but had dinner with Taco & Wormley, instead of Peppers. Peppers does fit the age and other markers, and one can imagine they could see him as another Troy Polamalu (even if you and I do not).

If they fall-- perfect fits, underaged: Gareon Conley, Patrick Mahomes II, Malik Hooker, or David Njoku
Right in their range, check all their boxes: Marlon Humphrey, T.J. Watt, Jabril Peppers, Derek Barnett, Jarrad Davis, Quincy Wilson
Older than they'd like, but great fits at positions of need: Carl Lawson, Marcus Maye
Checks all the boxes but maybe a shade early: Raekwon McMillan
If the rest of the board is decimated: Taco Charlton, Obi Melinfonwu, Takk McKinley, Corey Davis, Mike Williams
Too radioactive for round 1: Joe Mixon, Jourdan Lewis, Tim Williams
