  • I prefer the draft to a regular season game but 3 days sort of ruins it.

  • Kevin Gobleck

    How bout Marcus Davis( WR Virginia Tech) as a middle round option the kid is 6’4 and could be the big bodied receiver we need with low cost.

  • Garrett Hunt

    No! Goodbye Nuke Hopkins 🙁

  • Garrett Hunt

    The Steelers should consider drafting him in the second. This kid is very under rated.

    If no more Mendenhall we need RB Eddie Lacy!!

    If no more Harrison we need LB Jarvis Jones!! (I know we’ll have to move up to get him!)

  • steeltown

    Would love to get Vaccaro or one of the other TOP Safety prospects.. especially because Clarks heading into the final year of his contract and Will Allen might be gone.. but I doubt it happens.

  • Cody Younkin

    Eddie lacy is way overrated, ill take Kenjon Barner in the 5th over lacy in the 2nd

  • dgh57

    I’ll take Barner. Anyone that carries the rock 38 times for 321 yds. and 5 TDs in 1 game is alright in my book!! Question is can he be a feature back at the next level? His lack of size my say no. Feature back is one area the Steelers need to shore up in this draft.
