Goodell sux mock
I have been an avid Steeler and draft fan for a while, I never really cared too much for actual posting but...........this whole 5th round comp thing is horrid. This commie commish is ruining the NFL. Here is a stab at a mock with our accurate compensation for the loss of Alan Faneca.
1.- Ron Brace (6'3 330lb) NT, BC- Casey is awesome, but is getting old, gets injured a few games the last couple years, and not taking care of himself real well the past off seasons. Brace can take a few snaps for the vet and learn and take over when Hamp becomes a FA next year. For those reasons I believe he will not be retained, so I believe a succesor is needed in this draft.
2.- Kraig Urbick (6'5 325lb) OG, Wisc- I feel he could come in right away and battle Stapleton, who IMO is the worst of our OL. Played RT but will be a big strong Guard. He is used to a power run game and his strength and length inside can mask his lack of athleticism in the pass game.
3.- AQ Shipley (6'1 308lb) OC, PSU- I Gotta admit his short arm lenth scares me quite a bit. He does block like he wants to eat peoples faces though. Which is what I think the Steelers are most interested in. He is a glass eater.
Also Hartwig is a FA next year as well.
4.- Joe Burnett (5'10 190lb) CB, UCF- A solid built CB with good cover skills and good speed. Has a private work out with Steelers April 1. Can provide CB depth and is a dynamic returner.
5.- Deon Butler (5'10 185lb) WR, PSU- A WR that can give us a deep threat option and provide WR depth.
5.- Zach Potter (6'6 282 lb) DE, Neb- 34 DE prototype provides depth along an aging front. Looked alot better in games this year than in T vs N game I thought. Also Keisel is a FA next year.
6.- Quinn Johnson (6'1 246lb) FB, LSU- I know McHugh is basically our FB but Carey Davis can definitely be upgraded. It seems like a lose-lose if Mchugh is in the backfield, we are running and teams know that. If Davis is back there and we run he can only really block DB's. Johnson will help upgrade our run game.
7.- Whichever DL the Steelers like
7.- Camp body WR
