I have a hard time believing that the Steelers would draft 3 guys from Bama after not having drafted one during the Colbert era. Although I think that stat is a little over blown, I doubt they will be taking 3 of them. but anyways, here is my first effort of the off-season.

1. Rashaan Evans, ILB Alabama
Opportunity to start day 1, obviously ILB is an huge need even with Bostic in the fold.

2. Michael Gallop, WR Colorado St.
Martavis will not be in black and gold after this season, the Steelers like to try and address issues a year in advance and Gallop has some big upside. I don't know if he will be there at the end of the 2nd. But I didn't think JuJu would be there last year.

3. Kyzir White, FS WVU
A big hitter that can play near the line or deep, kind of a better version of Mike Mitchell.

5a. Shaquem Griffin, OLB/SS UCF
I don't think the NFL decision makers are going to jump up and take this guy as high as some are starting to believe. I still see him as a 4-6 round guy. but he does have a ton of upside and is just a playmaker.

5b. Olasunkanmi Adeniyi, OLB Toledo
This team needs guys who can get to the QB.

7a. Bo Scarbough, RB Alabama
A big back, like they like. Scarbough has some skills, worth a shot in the 7th.

7b. Joshua Frazier, DT Alabama
Linked to the team after his pro day dinner, not to mention his connection to Karl Dunbar. Could push McCullers off the roster.

Looks about right, I’d take that draft and wouldn’t complain.

I like it.

Evans scares me though. Groin injuries linger.

I gotta believe they take a rb by 3rd or 4th round as a hedge with l. Bell contract situation.

I don't know if there is going to be a RB in the 3rd that will be much better than the one they took in the 3rd last year.....RB is probably the most plug and play position on the field and there is always decent RBs at the end of round 1 or 2, if they need to they can draft one next year. Not that it's not possible. I just don't think it is necessary.

I’ll put it out there. They don’t draft a RB. There I said it.
