Mocking the Draft begins its live mock draft with the first pick in the third round.

As we mentioned earlier, the Steelers, led by BTSC writer Adam Baliatico (a.k.a. "Seton Hall and Steelers") drafted Memphis NT Dontari Poe with the 24th overall pick, then traded the Steelers' second and third round picks, and next year's second round pick, to New England, for the 31st overall pick. With that, he selected Alabama LB Dont'a Hightower.

As it sits now, the Steelers are without a third round pick, but you never know what could happen with an aggressive general manager.

Baliatico didn't want to reveal specific players he's targeting, but did say he has a plan, and would like to come out of the middle and later rounds with "at least one guard and one tackle."

Will that be in the fourth round, or possibly even the result of a trade back into the third round? Tune in, and give us your comments and opinions here, Baliatico is looking for your input.
