Participated in a mock draft on Reddit.

Pick Summary
1.28. Derrius Guice - RB - LSU
2.60. Shaquem Griffin - LB - UCF
3.92. Terrell Edmunds - S - Virginia Tech
5.148. Dane Cruikshank - S - Arizona
5.165. Marquis Haynes - EDGE - Ole Miss
7.220. Deon Yelder - TE - Western Kentucky

Last pick was Taron Johnson - CB - Weber State.

Had every guy we targeted in rounds 3-7 taken within 2 picks and no one wanted to trade down so we had to decide quickly. I left a couple picks up to my assistants. Overall not real happy with this but when you do a draft with lots of people who follow the draft they tend to take guys way earlier than they should so you end up with guys not falling and have to go elsewhere.

So yeah...this draft kinda sucks.

Your draft is excellent except that you drafted three SS and Haynes isn’t near the top of my day 3 edge rushers. I like the rest of the guys though.

I’m doing a three round, 32 GM mock draft for a kansas city radio show, picking for the Steelers Starts 23rd April and runs live with short time limit per pick.

I picked Cruikshank because my trade fell through and I had 5 seconds so I just went with a guy I thought would go in the 6th.

My assistants picked Haynes and Johnson.

I like Cruikshank a lot. I think he is exactly the kind of versatile S the Steelers could use/would like. I would REALLY like to buy Shaquem Griffin as a Mack... but I'm not sure if that will work or not. On one hand, Shazier wasn't exactly defeating blocks, either, and Griffin has the same sort of burst/vertical speed, but Shazier had a bit more length and 10lbs. Griffin has a bigger butt/base than Shazier, though, and it doesn't look like Griffin might concuss himself or worse on any given tackle.

Let's put it this way: there are worse choices for the Steelers' Mack job, but I think he'd be so much better as a SS.

Josh Dobbs is comparable to Lamar Jackson, so there's no point in spending a first or second day pick on Jackson. I stand by the fact that Dobbs is a very, very good QB prospect, and I'll go further on a limb and predict that Dobbs starts the first game after after Big Ben retires.. Riley Ferguson (who also used to be at TN) is not good enough to play in the NFL.

I'm not a fan of Jackson, but he's in a different universe than Dobbs. Twice the athlete and passer.

McShay 3 RND mock...

Round 1 (28): Mike Hughes, CB, UCF
Round 2 (60): Jerome Baker, LB, Ohio State
Round 3 (92): Dante Pettis, WR, Washington

Huges is likely gone before 28. Thank God! Fucking tired of all the smurf secondary guys being mocked to the Steelers. The new NFL requires secondary guys to have length. Baker isn't a bad selection. IMHO not a 2nd RND'er. Pettis would be a solid pick at the end of the 3rd.

The NFL draft at AT&T Stadium is getting closer!

While we all wait for the Cleveland Browns to officially be on the clock, Dane Brugler, SportsDay contributor and senior NFL draft analyst for NFLDraftScout.com, has already made his first 32 picks...

1. Cleveland Browns
Sam Darnold -- QB, USC (6-3, 221, 4.85 40-yard dash)

Sam Darnold or Josh Allen? The NFL rumor mill is cranking out whispers that the Browns are leaning Allen, but for now, I'm sticking with Darnold, who is the draft's best and safest quarterback.

2. New York Giants
Josh Rosen -- QB, UCLA (6-4, 220, 4.97)

Do the Giants stay put at No. 2? Do they draft a quarterback? Right now, I'll say yes to both with Rosen making sense as a fit -- both his talent and personality fit in New York.

3. New York Jets
Baker Mayfield -- QB, Oklahoma (6-0, 214, 4.75)

Unlike Josh Allen or other quarterbacks in this class, Mayfield is ready to see starting snaps at some point during his rookie season, providing a jolt the Jets' offense desperately needs.

4. Cleveland Browns
Bradley Chubb -- DE, NC State (6-4, 269, 4.65)

The most likely scenario is the Browns trade this pick to the highest bidder, but if they stay put, Chubb and Myles Garrett would be a formidable pass rush duo for the foreseeable future.

5. Denver Broncos
Josh Allen -- QB, Wyoming (6-5, 237, 4.76)

The Broncos are relying on Case Keenum to start right now, but Allen could be the long-term answer. Denver would be a great landing spot since Allen won't be pressed into action too soon.

6. Indianapolis Colts
Saquon Barkley -- RB, Penn State (6-0, 233, 4.40)

The Colts are in a situation where they can take the player who will make the greatest impact. Roquan Smith or Quenton Nelson are in the mix, but Barkley might be too appealing.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Derwin James -- S, Florida State (6-2, 215, 4.47)

Arguably the best defensive player in the draft, James has the alpha qualities and natural athleticism that would create a noticeable change in the back end of the Bucs' defense.

8. Chicago Bears
Quenton Nelson -- G, Notre Dame (6-5, 325, 5.22)

Reuniting Nelson with his college line coach Harry Hiestand would be a great story, but more important, the Bears are drafting a future Pro Bowler and protecting their young QB.

9. San Francisco 49ers
Denzel Ward -- CB, Ohio State (5-11, 183, 4.32)

Although he doesn't have ideal size, Ward plays bigger than he looks and suffocates the catch point, forcing throws to be pinpoint to have any chance of being completed.

10. Oakland Raiders
Roquan Smith -- LB, Georgia (6-1, 236, 4.51)

The moment Jon Gruden got a look at Smith, one would have to imagine Derrick Brooks sirens started going off in his mind. Gruden coached the Hall of Famer in Tampa.

11. Miami Dolphins
Tremaine Edmunds -- LB, Virginia Tech (6-4, 253, 4.54)

An impressive height/weight/speed athlete, Edmunds, who is the youngest player in the draft at 19, can be a building block as the Dolphins restock the defensive side of the ball.

12. Buffalo Bills
Lamar Jackson -- QB, Louisville (6-2, 216, 4.44)

The quarterback-needy Bills might need to trade up to secure the signal caller. But if the asking price is too much, Buffalo could stay put and see if Jackson falls to them.

Mock Draft Tracker
13. Washington Redskins
Minkah Fitzpatrick -- CB/S, Alabama (6-0, 204, 4.46)

A year ago, the Redskins had a highly rated defensive prospect from Alabama fall into their laps in the teens (defensive lineman Jonathan Allen). In this scenario, it happens again.

14. Green Bay Packers
Harold Landry -- DE, Boston College (6-2, 252, 4.64)

The Packers need to improve at every level of the defense, but it all starts up front, and Landry, who led the FBS with 16 1/2 sacks in 2016, is an immediate upgrade rushing off the edge.

15. Arizona Cardinals
Vita Vea -- DT, Washington (6-4, 347, 5.10)

The Cardinals are missing a defensive anchor who can help clog lanes and keep passing lanes traffic-free. Vea is a wide-bodied blocker with a rare blend of power and range.

16. Baltimore Ravens
Calvin Ridley -- WR, Alabama (6-0, 189, 4.43)

Baltimore added Michael Crabtree and John Brown in free agency, but the addition of Ridley turns the Ravens' wide receiver corps into a strength, giving Joe Flacco another weapon.

17. Los Angeles Chargers
Mike McGlinchey -- OT, Notre Dame (6-8, 309, 5.25)

With Joe Barksdale struggling to stay healthy and Russell Okung's price tag, McGlinchey would give the Chargers insurance at offensive tackle -- something Philip Rivers will appreciate.

18. Seattle Seahawks
Isaiah Wynn -- G, Georgia (6-3, 313, 5.05)

Wynn has a guard body, but with his experience at left tackle, he offers the versatility and skill set that would be a much-needed upgrade on Seattle's offensive line.

19. Dallas Cowboys
Leighton Vander Esch -- LB, Boise State (6-4, 256, 4.65)

An ascending player, Vander Esch hits the prospect trifecta: traits, tape and production. He would be the MIKE LB the Cowboys have been searching for, allowing Jaylon Smith to move to SAM.

20. Detroit Lions
Marcus Davenport -- DE, UT-San Antonio (6-6, 264, 4.58)

Regardless whether Ziggy Ansah (currently on the franchise tag) signs long term, Davenport, who many compare with Ansah as a prospect, is the added pass rush the Lions need.

21. Cincinnati Bengals
James Daniels -- G/C, Iowa (6-3, 306, 5.15)

The Bengals could use an upgrade at several spots on the offensive line, but nowhere more than at center, and Daniels might be the best center prospect since Alex Mack.

22. Buffalo Bills
Will Hernandez -- G, UT-El Paso (6-2, 327, 5.14)

After taking a quarterback earlier in the first round, the Bills need to protect him, especially after the recent and surprising news that Richie Incognito has retired.

23. New England Patriots
Kolton Miller -- OT, UCLA (6-9, 309, 4.91)

Miller has technique and discipline issues, but his size and athleticism profile is fairly similar to Nate Solder when he was a prospect. The Patriots drafted Solder 17th overall in 2011.

24. Carolina Panthers
D.J. Moore -- WR, Maryland (6-0, 210, 4.42)

It is tough to watch Moore's Maryland tape and not get Steve Smith vibes, which will be a welcome addition in Carolina -- a franchise very familiar with Smith's style of play.

25. Tennessee Titans
Maurice Hurst -- DT, Michigan (6-1, 292, 4.95)

Defensive line isn't the top need for the Titans, but Hurst is excellent value at this point in the first round (as long as the doctors give him two thumbs up).

26. Atlanta Falcons
Jaire Alexander -- CB, Louisville (5-10, 196, 4.38)

Alexander would give Atlanta an upgrade in nickel situations and insurance for Desmond Trufant, who has missed eight games the last two seasons.

27. New Orleans Saints
Josh Jackson -- CB, Iowa (6-0, 196, 4.48)

The Saints had good luck with a first-round cornerback (Marshon Lattimore) last year and could try to repeat the process with another Big Ten corner prospect.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers
Rashaan Evans -- LB, Alabama (6-2, 232, 4.70)

With Ryan Shazier's future up in the air, linebacker is a need. Evans competes like an AFC North linebacker with his physical appetite and always-revving motor.

29. Jacksonville Jaguars
Connor Williams -- OT, Texas (6-5, 296, 5.05)

Jacksonville spent big bucks in free agency to add Andrew Norwell to the offensive line and might not be done. Williams gives the Jaguars immediate depth at tackle and guard.

30. Minnesota Vikings
Taven Bryan -- DT, Florida (6-5, 291, 4.98)

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer covets upfield players who can create disruption, and Bryan has the potential to wreck a lot of NFL backfields.

31. New England Patriots
Lorenzo Carter -- DE/LB, Georgia (6-5, 250, 4.46)

Carter is a multidimensional player with the athleticism to rush the pocket or play off-ball and run free. He would be Bill Belichick's new Jamie Collins.

32. Philadelphia Eagles
Derrius Guice -- RB, LSU (5-10, 224, 4.49)

Running back isn't the Eagles' most pressing need, but Guice is excellent value at this point and most believe this will be Jay Ajayi's final season in Philadelphia.
