1. Exempt Ryan Shazier's contract.
2. Restructure both Joe Haden and Vance McDonald.
3. Cut Mike Mitchell, JJ Wilcox, William Gay, and Coty Sensabaugh.
4. Franchise tag LeVeon Bell.
5. Give the ERFA tenders to Xavier Grimble, Kameron Canaday, and Mike Hilton like they already have.
6. Give RFA tenders to Chris Boswell, Roosevelt Nix, and Eli Rogers.
7. Sign Eric Reid in free agency.

As always, I love to trade down. So far, this is what I would try to do. I deal Pittsburgh's 1.28 pick to Denver for picks 40 and 71. I then deal again with 2.40 pick to Arizona for picks 47 and 79.

2.47 Kemoko Turay OLB Rutgers
My friend says it looks like he has turned the corner on his development. If true, this guy will be a much better pro than his college career has suggested. Has freak measurables.

2.60 Darius Leonard ILB South Carolina State
More and more during Senior Bowl and week and the game, he became more acclimated and started show he could be a really good ILB in the pros. He can help replace Shazier.

3.71 Holton Hill CB Texas
Might be my favorite CB in this draft class. He can cover and is an asset in the run game unlike Charmin soft Artie Burns.

3.79 Fred Warner ILB BYU
Another guy who I think becomes a really good pro with his great size and frame. Real athletic guy who can cover and lay the wood.

3.90 Nathan Sheperd DL Fort Hays State
What separates this guy is his raw strength. I think he can play all three spots on the DL for the Steelers and gives them somone to push Hargrave.

5.??? Olasunkanmi Adeniyi OLB Toledo
Like I said in my other mock, he looks like a young James Harrison due to his size and build. Has great get off as well.

5.??? Trayvon Henderson SAF Hawaii
Henderson had a solid week of practice at the Senior Bowl and looked decent in the game as well. Gives the Steelers a versatile option as depth.

7.??? Chase Litton QB Marshall
Really like this guy, could be a real find at QB in a class that is shaping up to feature more QBs than originally thought.

7.??? Johnny Townsend P Florida
Really not sold on Berry, I'd like to get someone more consistent.
Du'Vonta Lampkin NT Oklahoma
This guy has a lot of untapped potential and could be a steal.

Keith Ford RB Texas A&M
Another guy I've always liked and I think he's a poor mans Frank Gore.

D'Ernest Johnson RB South Florida
Another favorite, I think he could make it as a return man and change of pace option.

Sam Jones OG Arizona State
Underclassmen who will get to work with one of the best OL coach in the league.

Korey Robertson WR Southern Miss
Looks like a natural receiver, makes some big plays here and there.

Ervin Phillips WR Syracuse
Another reliable slot guy to compete with Rogers if he is healthy.

Your assessment of Ola Adeniyi is spot on. I've seen him in person at least 10 times. He plays ANGRY. Same size, and build of James Harrison. Excellent first step, spends a lot of time in the backfield. Dominant against Akron in the MAC championship, 2 sacks, 3 TFL, a FF and he was ejected in the late 3rd for targeting. :lol:

I think he ends up in the 3rd round.

I would not touch Kemoko Turay. If you hate Dupree then Turay is not your guy. Does not have football IQ. Could not hold the edge if you put his feet in concrete. Looks like a desired pass rusher with his length but 1/2 of his career sacks came in his freshman year. No no No.

Take Leonard there or Ronnie Harrison.

To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection.
