Updated Mock Draft from a Pro - Steelers Select MLB Rolando McClain

I am not going to make my own Mock Draft, I don't know College Football Players that good to do this.

Here's a very good Mock Draft from a pro, though. It is updated and he has changed his Steeler picks after Casey Hampton was resigned and with some other new Free Agents signed

Steelers 1st Round Pick - Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama


Surprised to see Rolando McClain this low? Some mocks have McClain as high as No. 5, which I think is crazy. No inside linebacker has gone higher than No. 9 (Brian Urlacher) in the past 15 years. And there's a reason for that, as well as the fact that other renowned inside linebackers like Rey Maualuga and James Laurinaitis have fallen - the position is not that important.

However, McClain is a great value at No. 18, and I can't see the Steelers passing up on him if he's available. James Farrior has been a very good player for a number of years, but he recently turned 35. The Steelers will have to find a successor soon.


Other 2010 Steelers 1st Round Draft Possibilities:


1. Kyle Wilson, CB - Corner is a huge need for the Steelers.

2. Mike Iupati, G - Right guard has to be upgraded.

Steelers 2nd Round Pick - Dominique Franks, CB, Oklahoma

As I wrote earlier, the Steelers have to upgrade a secondary that couldn't stop Bruce Gradkowski in a must-win December game.

Steelers 3rd Round Pick - John Jerry, G, Ole Miss

Right guard is a big position of need for the Steelers. John Jerry fits the team's blocking scheme.


---


Steelers 4th Round Pick - Eric Norwood, DE/OLB, South Carolina

The Steelers have two great pass-rushing linebackers, but they don't exactly have the best depth at the position. Also, don't forget that James Harrison turns 32 in May.
