Draft Bracketology - Mosley, Pryor, and ...?

1:15 the Pittsburgh Steelers select ... C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama!

2:15 the Pittsburgh Steelers select ... Calvin Pryor, Safety, Louisville!

Insert second roar of approval from Steelers Nation. We got our dream prospect in the 1st and then doubled down in the 2nd by addressing a serious need with a player who has been rising up the Boards so fast that many people have started to rate him higher than clear 1st-rounder HaHa Clinton-Dix. That is a flat-out steal.

So Steeler Nation is rejoicing as the second day of the draft goes on ... and on ... and on without another Steelers pick. We wince as teams start to snatch up all our favorite pass rushers, corners, and wide receivers. Safeties get called too – lots of Safeties – and that eases the pain because we got our guy already, but it still hurts. Van Noy, Chrichton, Jeffcoat, Barrett, Michael Sam, Breslin ... gone. Fuller, Gaines, Boston, Reynolds, Roberson, Hampton ... gone. Cooks, Hoffman, Coleman, Richardson, Street ... gone. A faithful BTSC’er almost scalped himself when the Browns used "our" pick at 3:15 to grab Donte Moncrief. Ouch! And gone.

Time goes by until the very, tip end of the day when the Steelers get their lonely compensation pick for Mike Wallace. So who is still on the Board?

How This Will Work – I will list a set of "available" players for each position.* Pick your personal favorite for each one** and assume that he is on the Board. Now go and vote by position at the Poll. When that is done, please go to the Comments and leave your vote at each position.

* As before, I have chosen sets where I think at least one of the prospects should be available at 3:comp. In real life it won't be all of them, but this is a poll to determine who we at BTSC are hoping for.

** At the risk of tooting my own horn, the best one-stop-shop to start looking background is the BTSC Steelers Big Board and its By Position counterpart. Just ignore the ratings because those are in flux and should not bias your selection. The Board presents information and opinions gleaned from BTSC articles and comments,,, and, with links to other pieces around the Web.
