2T.) Marcus Davenport 6’7 255 EDGE UTSA- “Drama, put the laptop down.”I know, I know Bud Dupree isn’t going anywhere but James Harrison is gone and depth is nonexistent in the linebacking corps. Hell no I’ve never seen a UTSA game, but I’ve seen this fast riser’s name written quite a bit this football season so he must be doing something right.

2.) Tavarus McFadden 6’2 198 CB Florida St- “Again with McFadden, Drama?” Yep. I dig this kid’s swag. Went from leading the nation in ints with 8 to not notching any. WTF happened to FSU this year is beyond my little brain, but this kid can flat out play cornerback and will be a day 2 steal for somebody. The Steelers won’t give up on him as easy as me but Artie Burns is a bust, a major one.

3T.) Quin Blanding 6’2 215 FS Virginia- I may know diddly-poo about the Davenport kid, but I’ll tell you who will love this Virginia Beach native…Mike Tomlin.

3.) Leighton Vander Esch 6’4 240 LB Boise St.- Could be an interesting chess piece in the front 7. I’d start him out somewhere in the middle on base downs, but this hustler can play all over the place thanks to his ability to both cover and rush the passer. Good news on Ryan Shazier’s improving health, but I think there will be plenty of names of potential suitors discussed in the coming months leading up to the draft.

5T.) Hercules Mata’afa 6’2 252 EDGE Washington St- Havoc wreaker. Proud carrier of the “Bad Mother Fucker” wallet. Must be a tough little dude to hold up as a defensive tackle way out there in Wazzu. I’d find a role for this high energy war daddy in my front 7.

5.) Dontavius Russell 6’2 310 DT Auburn- Lynchpin of a suffocating Auburn front 7. Disruptor in the backfield. I think Hargraves could use a push maybe not to the bench but I want to see more chaos and mayhem from the kid.

7T) Jessie Bates III 6’1 195 S Wake Forest- Just a redshirt sophomore that declared early has prototype size and can both hit and cover. Sean Davis will get another shot, but the safety position needs a lot of upgrading.

7.) Ray Ray Mcloud 5’9 180 WR Clemson- Opted to enter draft after seeing some super freshmen cut into his playing time. Former 5 star recruit in his own right never lived up to the hype but kid can be an asset in the return game.

Thanks for reading. Antsy. Just passing some time before the big game tonight. Go Dawgs! Roll Tide!

id be happy with this one,

One of the few mocks where I disagree with you some players:

Davenport- Watched some of his tape and I think he isn't athletic enough to play OLB for the Steelers. If you're thinking DE, I think you might on to something.

Blanding- I hate this kid to be honest. He got his name because he's made a lot of tackles in his career, but the overall tape is very uninspiring. Takes bad angles on tackles, doesn't play physical like his size would suggest, is an average athlete, and can't cover at all. He has the size you covet but he's not a good bet.

Vander Esch- I think he's a very good college LB who will be a career backup in the NFL, another Matakevich or Fort type. I am hoping the Steelers go and really get an athletic LB to replace Shazier.

Other than those guys though I really like the mock. Hercules reminds me a ton of TJ Watt when you watch him on film except he is little quicker off the snap than Watt was in college. I really like McFadden too, the last time we got a McFadden from Florida State things turned out pretty well.

I think Vander Esch is going to blow up the combine pretty good. I've seen some uninspiring games and then some others where it's like WOW. Maybe had some injuries? Maybe tasked to do something different? Maybe seeing looks he didn't recognize?

My guess is he's a bit more athletic than you're guessing. Also, he's about to turn 22, so slightly overaged.

Marcus Davenport is too heavy to play 3-4 OLB. At this weight, he's very straightline but has a lot of power. He's a former WR who put on a ton of weight quickly, so he may need a redshirt year to build weight in a balanced way.

Some people may think I have a few players over rated...I am cool with that.

Using parameters provided ;)

2T. Ronnie Harrison Safety Alabama- He fits a need. I have a feeling he falls into the Steelers lap

2. Rashaad Penny Rb SDSU- If not the best back in the draft the 2nd best back in the draft

3T. Duke Ejiofor OLB Wake Forest- Bye Bye Bud.

3. Jake Wieneke Wr SDSU- I tried to find things to hate..He makes plays on the ball. I have a feeling he may go higher.

5T Andre Smith LB UNC- If not for knee injury he would have been drafted in the top 100. He can run and he can strike.

5. Airus Moore LB NC State- I just filled the Steelers inside linebacker needs for the next 5 years with mean nasty ball tracking savages.

7T- Poona Ford NT Texas-He is lucky to be 6 foot. He is such a motherfucker to block in the run game

7-Kamryn Pettway RB Auburn- Low mileage big time ability with the ball in his hands
