  1. I’ll go A- I wish we could push everything from 66 on back a spot and take Winovich there. They didn’t take an EDGE at all and that surprises me. They are really thin there now.
  2. Steelers Draft Pick’em List

    Thank you. I was hoping they’d grab Brailford there in the 7th, would’ve gave me 6!
  3. Why would you want to replace him though was my point. He is an effective Buck LB. stout against the run, effective blitzer, you need a guy like Vince. He’s no all pro, but that’s okay. The problem is they had such a lack of talent at ILB as a whole, they had him playing sub packages and dropping back in coverage when he’s not that type of LB. That’s not Vince’s fault, that’s Tomlin and Butlers fault.
  4. Vince Williams is our buck in base defense. With Barron and Bush on the roster now, we SHOULDN’T see him out there in sub packages anymore. But he is still very valuable as our Buck. He’s not going anywhere, nor should he.
  5. Some love it, some hate it. Say what you will about Bush, but I love the move. They identified the guy they wanted, they got aggressive and they went up and got him. How many years did they sit on their hands and let someone else get the guy they want? AND, this is payback for Cincy grabbing WJIII ahead of us!

    Mock 4 it is! Didn’t quite get the compensation right, but it made sense. The interest was clear, they sent everyone but the waterboy to the Michigan pro day. Underclassman, high SPARQ guy, power 5 conference, Bush was clearly their top target( maybe White was, but I don’t think they thought they had a realistic shot at him). Trade made sense because I don’t think he made it past Cincy. Now let’s see if they address CB next like I have them doing in Mock 4.

    I like those as well. I just think EDGE is a bigger need than most do. If they could get a guy early and add a secondary piece early as well, that might be more impactful than landing a guy like Bush.

    Thank you, I put a lot of thought into it. I wanted to approach the draft differently than I normally do. I do like 5 as well. I think the only one I really don’t like is 7. I just didn’t feel like I was getting good value at any of the picks, and potential trade ups weren’t working out the way I’d like.

    You’d call on Colbert to resign if he landed Greedy, Savage, & Wilson? That’s pretty harsh! I dunno, none of these mocks would have me pulling out my pitchfork, I’ll keep that put away for if they have a bad season this year.

    Hey everyone. I’ve been working on some Steelers mocks over the last couple of weeks, and I wanted to do some based off of several ways the board could fall to them. As a disclaimer, you should know that this year I decided not to watch game tape. Every year I watch tape and get irritated when they don’t take the guys I want. I can’t even remember the last time I was happy with a Steeler draft. So with that said, I based these mocks off of what the Steelers typically do, and who they’ve shown interest in. I tried to mix things up a bit in the mid-late rounds as not to keep mocking the same player in each mock, particularly at WR & RB. Mock Draft 1: Devin Bush falls to 20 Edition 1.20 – Devin Bush, ILB, Michigan *TRADE* Pittsburgh trades pick 2.52, 3.83, and 6.207 to San Francisco for picks 2.36 and 6.176 2.36 – Justin Layne, CB, Michigan St. 3.66 – Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame 4.122 – Foster Moreau, TE, LSU 5.141 – Mike Weber, RB, Ohio St. *TRADE* Pittsburgh trades picks 6.175 and 7.219 to Kansas City for pick 5.167 5.167 – Garrett Brumfield, OG, LSU 6.176 – Gary Jennings, WR, West Virginia 6.192 – Isaiah Buggs, DL, Alabama I'll say that this is unlikely to happen, but if Bush is on the board at 20 they are sprinting to the podium. Layne I have them moving up for here. They’ve shown as much interest in him as almost anyone, and honestly wouldn’t be surprised if he’s one of their top 2 corners. Mock Draft 2: White & Bush go early Edition *TRADE* Steelers trade 1.20, 4.122, & 2020 3rd round pick to NY Giants for pick 1.17 1.17 – Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson *TRADE* Steelers trade picks 2.52 & 3.83 to Green Bay for picks 2.44, 4.114, & 6.194 2.44 – Justin Layne, CB, Michigan St. 3.66 – Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia 4.114 – Foster Moreau, TE LSU 5.141 – Ben Burr-Kirven, LB, Washington 6.175 – Gary Jennings Jr., WR, West Virginia *TRADE* Steelers trade pick 6.192 to Seattle for a 2020 5th Round pick. 6.194 – Isaiah Buggs, DL, Alabama 6.207 – Benny Snell, RB, Kentucky 7.219 – Garrett Brumfield, OL, LSU This one they miss out on the top 2 LBs, so they move up a few spots to grab Clelin Ferrell. Ferrell checks all the boxes for their typical 1st round pick. In the 2nd round I have them moving up again for Layne, and actually gaining an extra pick in the process. Mock Draft 3: Big trade up for White Edition *TRADE* Steelers trade picks 1.20, 2.52, & 3.83 to Detroit for pick 1.08 1.08 – Devin White, LB, LSU 3.66 – Isaiah Johnson, CB, Houston 4.122 – David Sills V, WR, West Virginia 5.141 – Mike Weber, RB, Ohio State 6.175 – Jordan Brailford, OLB, Oklahoma St. 6.192 – Andrew Beck, TE, Texas 6.207 – Diontae Johnson, WR, Toledo 7.219 – Dravon Askew-Henry, S, West Virginia Here they see Devin White fall to 8 and they get aggressive. Having that early 3rd softens the blow of giving up their 2 & 3, and they get a potential stud in the middle of their defense. Mock Draft 4: Move up for Devin Bush Edition *TRADE* Steelers trade 1.20, 3.66, 3.83, & 6.192 to Denver for pick 1.10 1.10 – Devin Bush, ILB, Michigan 2.52 – Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame 4.122 – David Sills V, WR, West Virginia 5.141 – Alize Mack, TE, Notre Dame 6.175 – Jordan Scarlett, RB, Florida 6.207 – Shareef Miller, EDGE, Penn State 7.219 – Diontae Johnson, WR, Toledo If Bush is really their guy, they probably know there’s little chance of him making it past Denver-Cincinnati-Green Bay. Even if he did, he could still go to Washington, and Baltimore could jump us. This moves them up to 10 without giving up their 2 or any future picks and they get their guy. Mock Draft 5: Stay at 20, Bush & Ferrell gone Edition 1.20 – Greedy Williams, CB, LSU *TRADE* Steelers trade picks 2.52, 3.83, 7.219 to Indianapolis for pick 2.34 2.34 – Darnell Savage, S, Maryland 3.66 – Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama 4.122 – Damien Harris, RB, Alabama 5.141 – Beau Benzschawel, IOL, Wisconsin 6.175 – David Sills V, WR, West Virginia 6.192 – Isaiah Buggs, DL, Alabama 6.207 – Zach Gentry, TE, Michigan Here they sit tight at 20 and miss out on the top LBs, as well as Ferrell(who I think they really really like). Greedy Williams checks all the boxes. Tombert pro day, high end athlete, underclassman, power 5 conference. They then make the move to get their dimebacker in Savage. Both these guys had high college production and ball skills, and a draft like this could really transcend their secondary if they both reached their potential. This is probably my favorite of the mocks I did. Mock Draft 6: Board falls apart, Savage Edition 1.20 – Darnell Savage, S, Maryland *TRADE* Steelers trade picks 2.52 & 3.83 to Cincinnati for Picks 2.42 & 4.110 2.42 – Justin Layne, CB, Michigan St. 3.66 – Irv Smith Jr, TE, Alabama 4.110 – Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame 4.122 – David Long, LB, West Virginia 5.141 – Justice Hill, RB, Oklahoma St. 6.175 – Shareef Miller, EDGE, Penn St. *TRADE* Steelers trade pick 6.192 to Seattle for a 2020 5th round pick 6.207 – Alex Bars, IOL, Notre Dame 7.219 – Saivion Smith, CB, Alabama So they sit at 20, and all the top guys on their board are picked. There’s been some smoke about Savage going in the first, and he’s been in for a pre draft visit. This pick would buck the Tombert pro day trend, but there is still interest there nonetheless. Mock Draft 7: Board falls apart, Layne Edition 1.20 – Justin Layne, CB, Michigan St. 2.52 – Taylor Rapp, S, Washington 3.66 – Miles Sanders, RB, Penn St. 3.83 – Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia 4.122 – Foster Moreau, TE, LSU 5.141 – David Long, LB, West Virginia *TRADE* Steelers trade picks 6.175 & 6.207 to Denver for pick 5.156 5.156 – Malik Carney, EDGE, North Carolina 6.192 – Jimmy Moreland, CB, James Madison 7.219 – Byron Cowart, DL, Maryland This will probably be your least favorite, and it is mine as well. Not even just because of the Layne pick, just the way the board fell the whole way through. Although you might not like the Layne pick, you can’t ignore the interest they’ve shown in him. He checks all the boxes with the exception of Tomlin being at his pro day. It won’t be popular, but I think Layne is more likely to be the pick at 20 than Murphy or Baker. Mock Draft 8: Board Falls Apart, Winovich Edition 1.20 – Chase Winovich, EDGE, Michigan *TRADE* Steelers trade picks 2.52, 3.66, & 6.175 to the LA Chargers for pick 1.28 1.28 – Darnell Savage, S, Maryland 3.83 – Isaiah Johnson, CB, Houston 4.122 – Alize Mack, TE, Notre Dame 5.141 – Trayveon Williams, RB, Texas A&M 6.192 – Ben Burr-Kirven, LB, Washington 6.207 – Diontae Johnson, WR, Toledo 7.219 – Terronne Prescod, OL, NC State Oddly enough, I actually like this draft. Winovich doesn’t check the underclassman box, but they have shown interest. Like Savage, he’s been moving up the boards into late round 1 territory. With Dupree in the final year of his contract, I think EDGE is as big a need as any position. Every Draft I did I have them making a trade. I think with 10 picks it’s actually quite unlikely they sit and pick at all 10 spots. I could be wrong, I just don’t see it happening. I think they will make a push to move up for Bush, if it doesn’t happen I think they’ll want to come away with 2 guys they have on a short list. I’d guess that list looks something like Ferrell, Greedy, Savage, Winovich, Layne, and probably a few more, maybe N’Keal Harry, Mack Wilson, Julian Love. I don’t think they view WR as a big need. Hence the reason they’ve shown next to no interest in any of the earlier round guys like Metcalf, Brown, Deebo, etc. It actually wouldn’t shock me if they drafted a RB before they draft a WR. Same goes for TE. I think they’ll draft one, but I’d be absolutely floored if they took one early. They just haven’t shown the interest. Well, that’s all from me, hope you enjoy my work. We are about 24 hours away from the Cardinals being officially on the clock!

    Greedy also checks a lot of boxes, but I don’t think he’ll be there. If they take Baker or Murphy, they’ll be bucking some trends on how they typically draft. Most notably Colbert was not at their pro days. They did bring both of them in for visits though, so we’ll see.
  14. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Not as big a reach as Edmunds last year, but they did that. It’d be about the equivalent of the Artie pick if it happened. Again, I’m not here pounding the table for Justin Layne, I’m just pointing out he matches a lot of the characteristics they seem to like in a first round pick.
  15. 2019 Draft Discussion

    It’d be a reach, but I don’t know about a GIANT reach. Most mocks ive seen have him going top 40 or so. Im not saying im in favor of it. Like I said, I really haven’t watched any film this year. Just pointing out that Layne checks about as many boxes as anyone.
