2015 Steelers Mock Draft: Chris Nicolaou Version 3.0: Final Edition

With the 2015 NFL Draft upon us, it is time for my final mock draft. This is just some educated guesses at what I think happens and what I think the Pittsburgh Steelers will/may do.

This year is a special year as cornerbacks and outside linebacker are both obvious needs and they are consequently deep at both positions in this draft. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.

My best and final guess:

Round 1 Pick 22 – Marcus Peters – CB – Washington – 5115, 197lbs

With Bud Dupree, Trae Waynes and Kevin Johnson off the board. I am not comfortable with Eli Harold at 22. The Steelers obviously are interested in Peters as they spent time at his pro day, in which the Steelers held a large presence. He was also brought in for a pre-draft visit. I think his off-field issues are taken into consideration, but I feel that they are cleared up. Kevin Colbert likes to go best player available and I think Peters will be atop of their board when pick 22 arrives. Peters is arguably the best cornerback in this draft. His physicality and nastiness he brings is second to none. Could be a day 1 starter.

Scouting Report: http://www.steelersdepot.com/2015/02/2015-nfl-draft-player-profiles-washington-cb-marcus-peters/

Other players considered still on the board: Jalen Collins, Byron Jones, Randy Gregory, Shane Ray

Mock draft notes:  Collins has his foot issues along with his failing drug tests at LSU. Along with 10 career starts, you’re drafting on his future potential and it is a mystery of what he will become. Not enough to sway me. Gregory and Ray are not a fit in my opinion and their off-field issues hurt. Ray’s toe an issue, too. Jones would be the safer pick, but I think that Peters’ talent cannot be passed.

Round 2 Pick 24 – Nate Orchard – OLB – Utah – 6032, 250lbs

Orchard won the silver medal in the sack category last year with 18.5. He is very consistent in his play and he has no glaring weaknesses. He was very productive his senior year and boosted his draft stock at the Senior Bowl. He wasn’t asked to drop into coverage that often and had only one year of true production. James Harrison can’t play forever, and Jarvis Jones is a huge question mark. Even if Jones plays well, Arthur Moats is not a long term answer. Orchard will provide outside linebacker depth and will contribute on special teams. He may not see much of the field his first year, but that may benefit him in the long run. Orchard was brought in for a pre-draft visit and Steelers staff was present at his pro day, so the interest is surely there.

Scouting Report: http://www.steelersdepot.com/2015/01/2015-nfl-draft-player-profiles-utah-deolb-nate-orchard/

Other players considered still on the board:, Quinten Rollins, Clive Walford, Alex Carter

Mock draft notes: I chose to pass n Walford because his value would be in the third and the Steelers don’t reach. I didn’t choose Rollins because of my first selection and the need at edge rusher. Even though Rollins could transition to safety, Orchard was too valuable to pass up. Alex Carter is interesting here, too, but my first selection swayed me otherwise. I don’t think the Steelers go cornerback in each of the first two rounds.

Round 3 Pick 23 – Steven Nelson – CB – Oregon State – 5101, 197lbs

Our very own Dave Bryan got me to buy a ticket for the Steven Nelson train. I’ve been interested in him but recently I’ve been extremely interested in him. The Steelers brought him in for a visit, so they’re interested. Doing my breakdown of Jaelen Strong, I noticed how well Nelson handled him and you can see the physicality and toughness that Nelson brings. Excellent in the run game and is a smart player. Round 3 is appropriate in my opinion for someone who can be your guy outside or in the slot. He can play anywhere and do it well. He will also be a force on special teams. One of my favorite prospects.

Scouting Report:  http://www.steelersdepot.com/2015/02/2015-nfl-draft-player-profiles-oregon-state-cb-steven-nelson/

Other players considered still on the board: Anthony Harris, Doran Grant, Tyler Lockett

Mock draft notes:  I am totally happy with this pick. Grant and Lockett were hard to pass up, but Nelson is the physical presence that the Steelers need and provides valuable depth. I think Grant could be moved to safety if need be, and his versatility is intriguing. Steelers love their buckeyes, but Nelson shows more readiness, better run support and is a better athlete.

Round 4 Pick 22 – Jamil Douglas – G – Arizona State – 6040, 304lbs

Kind of a surprise pick here. Douglas is a name not familiar to most. A big kid who played guard his sophomore and junior years then played tackle last season. Steelers love guys who can wear multiple hats. He was a participant of the Senior Bowl and took full advantage. He showed a lot of athleticism and strength that would be an excellent fit to the zone blocking scheme. Douglas had a solid combine. Could be Ramon Foster’s successor and an excellent backup until then.  Are you comfortable with Chris Hubbard or Cody Wallace should something happen to Foster? Me either. Could step in and play great at any time. Perfect fit. Has tons of experience and was a leader on the Arizona State’s offense. His bio is a good read.

Scouting Report: N/A

Other players considered still on the board: Adrian Amos, Tyler Kroft, Markus Golden

Mock draft notes:  I had Amos slotted here and then I took a breather to think. I see that many teams have interest in Amos and I think he is a minor reach at in the 4th, so I passed. I may regret that, but I would hope he slides to the fifth with so many safeties in this class. I think the early selection of Orchard forced me to shy away from another edge rusher right now. It was hard to pass on Kroft because I think he has huge upside and a tall ceiling, but Douglas will help with depth at guard and is a perfect fit.

Round 5 Pick 24 – Jesse James – TE – Penn State –

I heard from David Todd on The Terrible Podcast that the Steelers love Jesse James, with a capital L. This is a great pick and a great fit. James is tall at 6’7” and is a move tight end that could stand to improve on his blocking. Remember, Heath Miller was not the best blocker in his earlier years. James has room to grow and could be a red zone threat with his size and long arms. James was scheduled to meet with the Steelers and the Steelers attended his pro day.

Scouting Report: http://www.steelersdepot.com/2015/02/2015-nfl-draft-player-profiles-penn-state-te-jesse-james/

Other players considered still on the board: Lynden Trail, Jeremy Langford, Kenny Bell

Mock draft notes: *Would have taken Amos if he was here* Some will say Langford should have been the pick, but I feel like DeAngelo Williams will hold down the two spot on the depth chart for the next two years. Trail has the size but comes with character concerns and has no true position. Kenny Bell is intriguing but felt James held greater value here.

Round 6 Pick 23 – Kyle Emanuel – OLB – North Dakota State – 6032, 255lbs

Some insurance for Orchard and some much needed depth. Emanuel will be a special teams demon until he gets some live snaps. He will be battling Shawn Lemon and Howard Jones for a roster spot. He has great size and an endless motor. His production was through the roof and he is a high-character kid with a high football IQ. No doubt Emanuel will give Lemon and Jones a run for their money. The Steelers brought Emanuel in for a pre-draft visit.

Interview: http://www.steelersdepot.com/2015/04/exclusive-interview-with-north-dakota-state-olb-kyle-emanuel/

Other players considered still on the board: Corey Crawford, Kenny Bell, DeAndre Smelter

Mock draft notes: I wanted to go wide receiver here, but I could not pass up Emanuel. Depth at outside linebacker is needed and Emanuel has the tools to fill the void. Crawford was hard to pass up because of the depth needed at defensive end, but Emanuel is a stellar pick.

Round 6 Pick 36 – Matt Jones – RB – Florida – 6023, 231lbs

I think Jones will be here with such a deep running back class. Jones knows how to convert speed to power while running the football. Needs to show the ability to break a few more tackles but he is a big back who can offer some change of pace in the future. His knee injury Is a concern, but in the 6th it is worth the risk in my opinion. With Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams as a mentor, I can see Jones succeeding down the road. He would battle Josh Harris for the number three running back role. Would like some special teams value at this juncture, but never know with Jones and what he has to offer.

Scouting Report: http://www.steelersdepot.com/2015/04/2015-nfl-draft-player-profiles-florida-rb-matt-jones/

Other players considered still on the board: DeAndre Smelter, Mario Alford, John Crockett

Smelter’s size is intriguing, but his injuries are a huge concern. He also may not be available for camp. Alford is a running back turned wide receiver and this affected his route running, which is shaky. I think Crockett has value but Jones playing in the SEC opposed to Division 1 football swayed me.

Round 7 Pick 22 – Titus Davis – WR – Central Michigan – 6006, 196lbs
The Steelers brought a few wide receivers in for pre-draft visits, so I was influenced to slot one somewhere and it happens to be here. Davis is an outstanding route runner who has excellent body control and can high point the football well. Playing all four years, he was extremely productive at Central Michigan. Davis caught 204 balls for 3700 yards (18.1 avg) and 37 touchdowns. Davis also returned punts as a junior. He doesn’t have long arms and his level of competition was weak. It is feared that he will not be able to separate from NFL-caliber cornerbacks. Would battle Heyward-Bey for the 4th wide receiver role and will probably end up on the practice squad if he cannot add any value on special teams.

Bio: http://www.cmuchippewas.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/titus_davis_895969.html

Scouting Report: N/A

Other players considered still on the board: Terry Williams, Tory Slater, Kyshoen Jarrett

Mock draft notes:  I really wanted to draft a defensive end, but really could not find value. Weak class. If Slater goes undrafted, I definitely give him a look. Terry Williams would be one of the top nose tackles if it wasn’t for his off-field issues, could end up being a stud in NFL. Jarrett would be a great pick here, could go either way.

Final mock notes: Would to have loved to get a safety or a five-tech defensive end but couldn’t find value. Hopefully Slater or Jarrett are undrafted free agents. I didn’t go defensive end because of the weak class and because I still hope the Steelers sign Alex Carrington after June 1st. Didn’t get Amos in the fifth, either.

Leave your thoughts in the comments below. Let the mocking of my mock begin!

Happy Draft Day!

I’m 22 years old and I’m from Campbell, Ohio. After I graduate with my bachelors, my plans are to go to graduate school to pursue my MBA and my Masters of Sports Business Management degree. I have been a Pittsburgh Steelers fan my entire life and I love to evaluate players and create mock drafts.

  • NinjaMountie

    I would pretty much love this draft if it happened. Wouldn’t change a thing.

  • CoreyInTheHouse

    I think we need to draft a safety at this point, preferably a FS. We only have one competent FS on the team in Mike Mitchell

  • NinjaMountie

    You’re going to get hosed for calling Mitchell competent. lol

  • Chris Nicolaou

    i just couldn’t find value. it was Amos or Douglas in the 4th and with the Will Allen signing, I went guard. But I agree, safety depth is needed. Team has Alden Darby on team, may be able to compete.

  • Devon Day

    … No they don’t…

  • NinjaMountie

    What’s that USC CB/Safety? What round do you think he’ll go in. I like that guy…though you wouldn’t know it by me forgetting his name.

    You know..the Superman Hero dude. lol

  • Spencer Krick

    Solid draft, imo

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    Best mock i’ve seen

  • PittsburghSports

    I think you’re betting against history drafting 3 straight defenders.

  • PittsburghSports

    The guy that jumped off the balcony and then lied about it making himself look like a hero lol. Josh Shaw. Good looking prospect, but that story is a head scratcher.

  • SnoopDogg123

    Sign me up for this draft class. I don’t know anything about Jamil Douglas, but I like the round you choose to select an offensive linemen.

  • Personally, I evaluated Darby and I don’t think he can. If any safety competes its Isaiah Lewis.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    history cant last forever

  • Chris Nicolaou

    ah, forgot about Lewis. Thanks Josh.

  • steelburg

    1. Kevin Johnson, CB
    2. Preston Smith, OLB
    3. Clive Walford , TE
    4. Senquez Golson, CB
    5. Durell Eskridge, FS
    6. Kyle Emanuel, OLB
    6. Matt Jones, RB
    7. Quinton Spain, OG

    I tried to keep it strictly to the players that steelers depot had the team connected to either through workouts or visits.

  • Chad H

    Solid mock draft, I’m digging it!

  • Bill Sechrengost

    Great draft Chris. To get two CB’s and two OLB’s of this quality would be fantastic. I have been seeing Orchard projected more and more for the Steelers in the second round. I would like to see a DL somewhere. For the later rounds, I would like Deon Simon, Derrick Lott, or Letterius Walton, all big guys who could play all along the line. Otherwise, it looks good to me. I think I’m looking forward to the draft more on Friday night than Thursday night.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    sign me up for that, not too shabby.

  • steeltown

    I like it, especially if we do add Carrington to compete for depth along the DL

  • Chris Nicolaou

    Bill, I tried to squeeze Lott in but he’s getting fifth round value now and I haven’t done enough homework on him to slot him. I agree, DL needs depth but this class is weak. Thanks for the read and comment!

  • srdan

    Correct. Best realistic mock I have seen.

  • srdan

    KJ over Peters or peters was drafted?

    Personal preference? I need someone to sell me on KJ before tonight so I’m not dissapointed if we get him!!! Help!!

  • Ike Evans

    Double dipped twice and a running back? … I tip my hat to you good sir

  • Umbra Aeternus

    Wow, Nicolaou drafting Marcus Peters? Im shocked. lol

    I really liked this mock draft. Peters, Orchard, Nelson, Emanuel and James. This is the best mock I’ve seen so far.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    i hope its an expensive hat

  • Chris Nicolaou

    Draft Marcus Peters

  • PittsburghSports

    When history shows a 98.7% chance of seeing the Steelers select an Offensive player before the 3rd rd is over, I’ll take that bet.

  • Antonio

    I’d much rather add a defensive pressure player in round 1 but if they’re all off the board then why not draft maxx williams – the red zone offense did struggle at times last year.

    Corner is risky as athletes with solid measurables at that position are very common.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    I got a B in calculus my senior year of highschool and there was a 99.99% chance that wasn’t happening so hoo-rah!

  • Chris Nicolaou

    Only KJ if TW/MP off board. KJ played at 175 so it is hard to speculate how he’ll be. Added weight surely helps.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    Maxx may be available in round 2. He’s been dropping. No OLB’s for me to draft in round 1.

  • StrengthOfVictory

    For me, adding a receiver earlier would be a better option than double-dipping at OLB. Especially when it’s unclear what the Steelers have in Howard Jones and Shawn Lemon. And I really don’t like the idea of the Steelers entering camp with their top three receivers, DHB (you know what you’re getting there), and then “some other guys.”

  • steelcityinny

    Not bad picks. I especially like first and second rounds, they are the same two I would target. I do think they will draft a WR in round 3 or 4, don’t think they will wait until the 7th round. I also like Jesse James in the 5th round.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    I was iffy about lockett at 3, but I think he goes late 2.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    7th round is from left field lol almost impossible to predict

  • Rick Williams

    I like Preston Smith over Orchard in the 2nd, I think he might be a better fit. I like Orchard just think we need a 260 or 270 lb guy for the OLB.

  • dgh57

    I like this mock except where is the replacement for Cam Thomas that finally pushes him off the roster? Can Douglas play OT and push for Adams job?

  • PittsburghSports

    lol I think my numbers are off anyway cause a few years included we didn’t have a 3rd rd pick, but still count on a WR, TE or Lineman being drafted before Saturday.

  • StrengthOfVictory

    Yeah, it’s really hard to get a read on when some of these receivers will end up getting drafted. Take Sammie Coates, for instance, who the Steelers seem to like. I’ve seen rankings that have him as the fifth best receiver, while others have him as the ninth or tenth. Strong is the same way, and it all depends on individual rankings.

  • Rod Hedrick

    I hope it plays out this way

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    If you would have got amos instead of gaurd it would have been icing on the cake but the rest of the rds are so good i can go with pound cake and be satisfied

  • Jason White

    Awesome mock.

  • All due respect to the other guys on this site, but this may be the final mock I like the most. In large part that’s due to taking Peters in the first. I’d probably go for Dupree if he’s around, but he likely won’t be, and I much prefer Peters over the other CBs, as well as over edge rushers like Ray and Gregory. I suppose Jones would be my #2 here.

    I’m also fine with Orchard in the second, but I’d be fine with any of those guys, like Harold or Smith. The differences seem to be rather negligible, so it’s really a matter of comfort level for the team. If they like one more than the others given what they see as better fit or more upside, I trust their judgement. I just hope they’re around then.

    I like Nelson a lot too, and would be happy to see the Steelers taken, I might go in a different direction in the third and grab Lockett. I don’t know much about Douglas, but going o-line there makes a lot of sense of there’s value/upside to be had. But what I love is the run of James, Emanuel, and Jones with the next three picks. And if they were to go WR or some other position, they could go back to the secondary in the seventh with someone like Celiscar.

    Anyway, very nicely done. I really hope it plays out along these lines.

  • If Maxx is available in the second, I do hope the Steelers grab him, unless they just think so highly of one of the edge rushers that they can’t pass him up. The question is, if they go TE, or maybe WR, in the second, will there be a decent OLB available in the third. Could Orchard fall, for example? It seems unlikely, but Colbert has spoken about the great depth at the position this year.

  • Great point. I’d like to see the Steelers find quality DE depth, but I’m not sure that has to happen through the draft. They have their starters. A suitable backup, someone much better than Cam Thomas, can surely be found elsewhere — yes, like Carrington.

  • Alexander Sebastian Heath

    Will never understand the pick for Peters. If teams aren’t that concerned with his characters, he will be long gone before our pick. If teams are that concerned, which the Steelers are likely to be one of them, he will still be there in 2nd round. Absolutely no logic and uncharacteristic of the Steelers to do that.

  • Steel PAul

    My first thought as well.

  • steeltown

    Yea im liking Lewis and Dangerfield to make some noise in the upcoming camp

  • Steel PAul

    When you first put up that stat, I took note. And I agree, if you were betting, this is a slam dunk stat.

    And yet, it still had the feeling of, if it was going to happen in any year.. New DC.. Tomlin getting to be more involved, sagging D after total turnover with holes left to fill, and an offense that looks to only be better in 2015.

    Probably an OL in the third lol.

  • Good one, especially at FS lol….but the man is right, we should add a FS and send Mitchell over to where he belongs–SS.

  • TroymanianDevil

    I’ll also add that the last time the first 3 picks were on defense (03′), Troy and Ike were 2 of the 3 picks.

  • PittsburghSports

    Yeah that’s the one year that bucks the trend, plus another time in the 50’s.

  • steelburg

    I think Peters is the best CB hands down. So if we drafted him over Johnson that would make my day. OK here is the sell Johnson is one of the quickest CB in the draft he is 6’0 which is desired CB height. For all the talk about not being able to tackle he is at worst a average tackler by NFL corner standards. There has been so much talk about his weight he weighted in 2 pounds heavier then Waynes at the combine 188 to Waynes 186. He really is a perfect fit for what we do that’s why I think people like him so much. The only reason I think Waynes is viewed as the better prospect because of the team he plays on and the speed he has. In closing Johnson is one of the better CB in this class because he is regarded as a plug and play player who can start from day one by most scouts. He has the speed and quickness to develop into a number one CB.

  • TroymanianDevil

    Agreed, no safety is worth the early pick this year. If Amos is there in the 4th I hope that’s the route they go. I think a guard can come in and learn and play much quicker than a safety so drafting Foster’s potential replacement even next year is fine if a late round OL this year doesn’t pan out.

  • TroymanianDevil

    This would be a fantastic draft. Got 2 starting potential CB’s, got a top pass rusher plus a late round one for depth. Even got a good quality TE and OL. I don’t think Jesse James lasts until the 5th round but it’s definitely a possibility. Would like to see a decent S picked somewhere but you get can’t everything, I’d be very happy with this draft

  • srdan

    Thanks bud.

    The only thing that worries me about your explanation when you say “perfect fit for waht we do”. I’m not sold on the idea that our defense will be the same defense this year. I could be way wrong, but I expect a different approach to passing offenses. And I think that includes a lot of press. Our issue in teh secondary is not only lack of talent, but lack of adaptation to elite QBs….they torch zone defenses.

  • TroymanianDevil

    Right. Just pointing out that b/c there was success the last time they did it, I can see them doing it again. I agreed with you that it shouldn’t be surprising to anyone ( although I think people will be if it happens ) if an offensive player is taken in the first 3 rounds. But if there was any year to do I think this would be it

  • Shannon Stephenson

    As far as saying because the Steelers were at Peters pro day in Washington and that we had a meeting with him I feel isnt a strong enough case. Kakaha, Thompson and Shelton are guys who we may also consider that are from Washington. The Steelers always look at bad character guys every year to see where to put them on their board if they are even on. From the reports I have heard is that Peters is still a problem and if he wasn’t a problem then the guy will not even make it to us.

  • CoreyInTheHouse

    Right, we will build the first SS only defense.

  • Rick M

    I’m struggling a lot with the first-round selection. I don’t want our first CB taken in the 5th round (where’s the nearest bridge if that happens). But nowadays it seems tough to find a good edge rusher in the draft if you wait too long. I’m not sure if it makes more sense to go CB or OLB first.

    I realize there are red flags associated with the edge rushers who may be available to us. But what if Orchard doesn’t last until 56? Where are we then? I guess I better keep telling myself ‘just get a good D player in Round 1’, regardless of the position.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    thanks michael!

  • Chris Nicolaou

    Some prefer Waynes, Kevin Johnson

  • Chris Nicolaou

    couldnt agree more

  • Chris Nicolaou

    Douglas better as a guard IMO. And this is a WEAK DE class..no value found, really.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    didnt have preston available

  • Chris Nicolaou

    Douglas is a player. Very underrated. Adds depth. Chose him over Amos because of the Will Allen signing.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    I didn’t have him available in the 2nd, sadly.

  • Yeah, I suspect Maxx will go early-to-mid second. I know he’s fallen from his heights as a possible mid-first-rounder, but there’s an awful lot of talent there, and he certainly fits with where the NFL is at the moment.

  • LucasY59

    I like it

    Agree on the Peters over Jones (and I think its very realistic the choice is between those two)

    Orchard seemed to have a good visit with the team

    I like the physicality of Nelson (he isnt one of my favs, but wouldnt be upset with the pick at all) swag would be brought back to the CB’s with Nelson and Peters, which has been missing since Ike left his prime years, plus Ike is a coaching intern so he can only help them to transition their play and attitude into the pro level…which means maturing for Peters)

    I think there is good value for OG in the 3rd and 4th and also like that Douglas has played both G and T

    I really like James and think he will be able to help in the redzone, He doesnt have a ton of speed for a “move” guy but for his size he is still pretty fast and can be a decent blocker, will need to improve for the Pro’s (but all rookies do) and I think it could become one of the strengths of his game

    dont think you can go wrong with Emanuel he has been on a (championship) winning team for basically his entire college career so he knows the atmoshpere of a winner, and what it takes to be at the top of the level of competition.

    Jones is a good big back that the team has shown interest in, and could be a good compliment to bell

    dont know much about Davis, but I think the team has a pretty good one from central michigan already

    I think the Steelers are interested in most all of the guys on this mock so there is a very good chance a few are the picks this weekend

  • homewood619

    Nice!

  • Nick

    Not terrible..but enough of the Alex Carrington talk. The guy is not a good football player.

  • westcoasteeler

    Can’t wait to see the Steeler’s vision. Hope it’s similar to this based on need, but always amazed at what we actually do.

  • LucasY59

    scam Thomas is not a good football player, Carrington should be good enough to get rid of him, and they need Depth at DE so if he signs for minimum I wont be upset

  • LucasY59

    James is a good consolation prize

  • Alexander Sebastian Heath

    That I don’t get. Peters and Johnson both doesn’t tackle well, Johnson is worse. Waynes is strictly man on man cornerback. Where is the logic??

  • steelburg

    Johnson can play both press man and zone at a high level. He is still good in man just not as good as the other 2 Waynes and Peters. But his zone coverage is better than both players at this point in there careers.

  • Brian K

    Wow! This draft matches mine except for the last 2 picks! I would be happy happy happy!

  • RASTA

    I like it….including the thoughts on Carrington (or the guy he replaced, who is already on our roster)

    Go Steelers!

  • srdan

    As long as it’s not an ILB I agree bud.

  • AustinTxStillerFan

    Calculus isn’t that hard…

  • BigBSerrano

    I LOVE this Mock.

  • Biggie

    Pretty solid overall, I might look at a couple of the alternatives later but I like this mock. Starting with Peters and Orchard is great way to start for sure.

  • Chris Nicolaou

    No, it’s not. But my calculus professor passed away mid-year and we got a sub who screwed us royally.

  • steelersfan

    Oh man this is the best one I’ve seen. Please let this happen

  • stellarsfan

    This really would be a mock dream come true.

  • Rick M

    If you forced me to bet on it, Kevin Johnson would still be the most likely #22 pick. I see Peters going before Johnson, and I see Johnson as far preferred by the Steelers to Jones given the scouting done and the individual meetings. They’ve been following Johnson for 2 years. He’s the guy if he’s still available.

  • Devon Day

    Don’t add we into the statement. I don’t care personally who gets the postseason. I just care for great games. Furthermore, Pittsburgh already utilized an SS into the defense as a whole. Lightning doesn’t strike twice.

  • Dan Sunseri

    Of the mocks on this site this by far makes the most sense and is the best. Peters and Orchard followed by Nelson is a real win!!

  • PittsburghSports

    *cough*
