Steelers dream off season

So to me this off season and draft are even more important than last years for the following reasons. 1 We should not have that many huge needs to fill by great players leaving. (Clark is gone, but we have S. Thomas to fill the position)Keisel may be gone unless he stays for a huge home town discount same with Ike. 2 We have some wiggle room under the cap and won't be forced to pull another James Harrison, with Troy P!!. 3 Can't wait to see the improvement of Bell, Jarvis, Wheaton and Thomas going into year 2. 4 We can trade and give some extensions to a few players and have around 40 mil in cap space. Don't laugh to hard at that number, Woodley counts 13 MIL next year a some team will give a conditional pick for him if he redoes his deal. Ben, Troy, Timmons and Ike will work something out to get fair deals and give the Steelers enough cap space to sign the young guys they need to lock up and possibly get a couple good FA like Spikes from the Pats and Pitta from ratbirds. I would also trade Pouncey for a pick bc Velsaco did very good, and we won't give Pouncey the $ he probably thinks he is worth just like Wallace. Which brings me to the draft, we should get 2, 3rd round supplemental picks for Wallace and Lewis. Probably a couple of other for Mendy, Colon and Mundy. The plan IMO is lock up the guys we already have and build through the draft the typical Steeler way. Round 1) Nix, NT Notre Dame. I think the Steelers will probably be picking around 15th and that is a perfect spot to take Nix. We need another Hamp type in the middle of the 3-4 D. This would also let us move McClendon(sp) to end and not NT kill 2 birds with one pick. You need big bodies up front to let the LB make plays, we suck against the run this year. Round 2) Allen Robinson WR PSU. He is big and fast 2 things this O needs. Cothery will be gone next year and Sanders may cash in somewhere else. That would leave Brown and Wheaton and Dunn and Moye has projects. Robinson could be the best WR in the draft in a couple of years. Round 3a. (Pouncey trade, some team like Washington, OAK, and or Jacksonville all of $ and need help. Pouncey is worth a 3rd rounder) Perryman ILB, THE U, Perryman is 3 down LB, smart and fast oh I forgot a hard hitter and plays well in huge games. This year has proven when you don't have any one in front of you rookies will start year 1. Perryman is better than Wilson and whomever else we put out there. 3b. (supplemental for Wallace) Tre Mason, RB Auburn, Hav eyou watched him?? Yes we have Bell has the #1 back and Jones is the #2 and kick returner. But Mason is way better then Dwyer and Mason looks like he could be a good 3rd down back and special team player. 3c (supplemental for Lewis)D. Jones, DT PSU, Keisel can't play for ever, Hood sucks and will be gone. In today's NFL it's all about packages and match ups. Jones could and Al Woods could be key rotational players moving forward for the Steelers. Again we suck against the run this year, this mock has us fixing that and getting back to hard hitting and out physical the other guy football on D.
