This Is my 2010 Mock Draft Predictions:
The STEELERS wil do something we usually don't do TRADE and sign a major free agent. All the other mack drafts look pretty good but this is how I see it all going down:
1st Round Position School
Taylor Mays S USC
We will get this pick via sign & trade for Willie Parker especially when Mays had such a bad Senior Bowl teams are not quit sure of all the hype he has recieved but we will chalk that game up to a bad day. Parker has been banged up oover the past couple of years and not very productive. This year Mendenhall flashes of being the next Pro Bowl back coming from STEELER Nation look for the STEELERS to pick up a RB in the 3rd round of this years draft (more on that later) while Mewelde Moore will continue to do his thing when called upon. Also the STEELERS will be taking a hard look at Darren Sproles for a one two punch that most of the NFL is going to plus the added value he brings of returning kicks
Terrence Cody DT Alabama
Mount Cody will be a beast on the prowl with the current cast members of the Steel Curtain especially with the signing of Casey Hampton they will be a great one two punch at NT which will allow the STEELERS to keep Chris Hoke as a solid back-up as needed.
Trevard Lindle CB Kentucky
This pick was a toss-up between Brandon Spikes and Lindle but Spikes may be gone especially when the Ravens have the pick before the STEELERS noway wil the Ravens allow him to fall into the STEELERS lap! Lindle is the ball hawk the STEELERS need in the secondary seeing how in 09 there was no INT's from our CB until the last game of the season G&T (Good & Terrible) Lindey will be excellent in run support as well while at Kentucky he was very good at making tackles. Small but tough perfect for the STEELER mold and a very big play maker.
Again the STEELERS make a trade in this round with our cross state rivals the Eagles. This is the round the STEELERS go Offence.
Demaryius Thomas WR GT
Thomas is a blocking playmaking WR a Hines Ward prototype and a Big Target for Big Ben. averaged 16.1 per reception he also had several rushes and a couple of pass completions, can you say SLASH!
Myron Lewis CB Vanderbilt
Another STEELER in the making has a nose for the ball 10 career INT's 170 Tackles and in 09 had 10.5 tackles for a lost and 5 QB sacks and at 6'2 should be able to match up well with the Big Boys on Sunday. Another Possible Thad Turner (The Ohio State)
Ricky Sapp OLB Clemson
Sapp tore his ACL in 08 so he should fall into our lap for a steel as our second 4th pick. There are two concerns with Ricky 1. Can he recover from his injury and still have that speed off the edge. 2. Can he play in space. Other than that he has the physical talent to do so. Other possible picks if they are still around would be Harry Coleman (LSU)Sergio Kindle (Texas) & C.J. Wilson (East Carolina) but I highly dought it!
Vance Oghobase DT Duke
This young man has improved his play each year at Duke good at getting pressure on the QB a little inconsistant hopefully he has worked hard to recover from injusries suffered last year. But if there is a worthy safety left on the board This will be the pick we take one. Another possible her would be Ed Wang (Virginia Tech)
Kavall Conner OLB Clemson
A need special team player a hard hitting LB that hasn't missed games due to injury can be molded into a future starter
Cory Jackson FB MD
Another need special teamer with a very good up side. another possible would be Jammie Kirlew (Indiana)
possible other Unsigned picks in camp
Javarris James RB Miami
Aaron Weber S Cinci
Chris Hawkins CB LSU
Thad Turner CB The Ohio State
Jacques McClendon OG Tennessee
Drew Davis OT Alabama
Levi Brown QB Troy
