Well the day of reckoning is Finally here. its the day of the NFL Draft and of course there are mock drafts everywhere. So I might as well put mines into the mock draft madness.
My draft is base on Team needs and nothing more. Im not going into a deep breakdown of each player ,takes up to much time.Here we go
1. #24- Kevin Zeitler- G Wisconsin- A rock solid pick. First step to upgrading our interior line.
2.#56-Brandon Brooks-G/T-Miami OH- Another rock solid pick- With Zeitler and Brooks our interior line is finally upgraded.
3.#86-TY Hilton-WR/PR/KR- Ty is an explosive all around playmaker with blazing speed and an outstanding slot receiver and outstanding returner. he may be on the small side but hes tough and not afraid of going across the middle. With TY if Wallace bolts we have a young speedster to groom.
4.#119-DT-Herbron Fangupo- BYU- He is a run stuffer who will demand double teams. Strong and Tough as nails A good replacement for Casey and added depth at NT.
5.#159-ILB/Hybird-James Michael Johnson-Nevada- The most fluild ILB in the draft. He is fast,tough and very instinctual. His versatility is a plus since he play 3/4 and the "Sam" in their 4/3 defense. Added depth at LB
6.#193-RB-Bobby Rainey- WKU- A Sproles type player who is tough and fast runs very well between the tackles and a nice pass catcher on 3rd.
7.#231-K-Blair Walsh- Georgia - A team need. period...
7#240-CB-Micah Pellerin- Hampton- A gifted and talented HBCU player who may surprise
7#246-NT- Delvin Johnson-Marshall- A tough, hardnose and strong player who I feel was somewhat overlooked because of DE-Vinny Curry. Delvin along with Fangupo give the D-line much added talent ,depth and YOUTH!!
7#248-FS/S-Neiko Thrope- Auburn- A solid,fast player who could one day replace Troy or Ryan. They are both 30 and over we need to groom a younger player.
Wow. I did it. Well that`s my first Steeler draft. I know some will like it and some will rip it but thats part of the fun in doing a mock draft. To hear from follow Steelers fans is what its all about right?
