SB Nation Bloggers Mock Draft: Steelers on the clock

New, comments

It's about that time. The Steelers are on the clock, so to speak, and the Triangle of Authority's pick will be posted on SB Nation and Behind The Steel Curtain at noon ET Thursday. Who will it be? Vote for your pick.


A few fists flew in the Triangle of Authority's meeting room with a non-unanimous two of three prongs being in favor of the possibility of taking Oklahoma super-athlete OT Lane Johnson, should he be available at No. 17.

The Panthers ruined the fun, like they always do. Calmer heads prevailed after Johnson's selection, which came after Tampa Bay snared Xavier Rhodes of Florida State, making him the third cornerback in the last four picks taken.

There was a quiet ember of argument beginning to boil over the idea of a middle linebacking unit rivaled athletically by few, if any, in the NFL. Alas, Alec Ogletree was taken at 15, putting the Rams on the clock to start Day 6 of the SB Nation Bloggers Mock Draft today.

The Triangle of Authority is going to open this up to the opinions of the community.

Our top four right now, LB Arthur Brown, WR Cordarrelle Patterson, OG Jonathan Cooper and WR Tavon Austin. We can confirm it's one of these four.

Which one do you feel it should be?

1. Chiefs: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
2. Jaguars: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
3. Raiders: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
4. Eagles: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
5. Lions: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
6. Browns: Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon
7. Cardinals: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU
8. Bills: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia
9. Jets: Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
10. Titans: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
11. Chargers: Star, Lotulelei, DT, Utah
12. Dolphins: Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington
13. Buccaneers: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
14. Panthers: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
15. Saints: Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia

Keep following SB Nation's Blogger's Mock Draft, there will be a second round, and Behind The Steel Curtain will open it up to the community for opinions and direction on who the Steelers should take with the 48th overall pick?
