Just thought of an interesting draft scenario...

Trade 3rd round pick for Jonathan Stewart. Cut Mendy.

Draft:

1: Kevin Zeitler - OG
2: Brandon Brooks - OG
3: Traded - Jonathan Stewart
4: Trenton Robinson - FS
5: Vontaze Burfict - ILB
6: Hebron Fangupu - NT
7: Blair Walsh - K

Would be an immediate impact on the offense, with at least 1 starter at guard and a new starting RB.

Would be all about potential on defense, Taze and Fangupu would be experiments, but worth the risk at that point in the draft. Trenton would replace Will Allen asap.

Special teams would be upgraded, Walsh is the best kicker in this class imo.

What do you think?

I don't think Taze is on our board to be honest. Fangupo will probably go higher as well.

T-Rob will go higher as will Nicks. I don't like Poole. If he's as bad as UT fans say he is, then no thank you. Carder is a little small for a 34 LB IMO, but I'd be OK with him since he wants to be a Steeler. First three picks would be sex.

Willie G.ay signed a 2yr deal w Arizona.

Also, according to an article in the Trib, Colbert says the team expects to have Mendenhall back in some capacity, even if not back to 100%, next year and that they are also interested in bringing back Moore so maybe we should slow down on the Pead idea.

Here is a bold prediction...

Chris Scott will be a starting guard by the start of the season.

(its bold, because he could just as easily be in the first wave of cuts)

I think that Ramon Foster should be given the job. He is a nice player. I don't know why the staff hates him that much.

Well we do have 2 open guard positions so there's always the chance they could both start.

I really hope Cordy Glenn is in one of those spots tho

Also great point on whoever brought up Kuechly. Eagles getting Demeco was big for them and could end up being big for us. I don't see how Kuechly could fall all the way to 24 after the combine he put up but it is now at least a remote possibility.

Only thing I worry about is if Poe ends up going in the top 10 then KC could easily take Luke at 11. Seattle at 12 is another potential landing spot for him especially since they have addressed their D-line and QB needs through free agency.

But other than that...maybe Tennessee or San Diego?

We already have a cover guy in Timmons. We would need a big inside thumper, and usually with the 3-4 and our zone defense we can mask their inability to cover.

So if both are available you would take Hightower over Kuechly??

As far as size goes he's just as big as Farrior (6-3, 243) is my whole deal. Plus he was much more productive on the collegiate level and didn't have the benefit of top dlinemen playing in front of him.

Outside of the Pitt guys, the Steelers had T.Y Hilton, Mike Adams, and Derek Wolfe visit the facility. IIRC, most, if not all, the guys who visited last year were drafted by us.

Teams are allowed to have around 30 visits iirc so we certainly didn't draft everyone we had in for a visit.

And as an OSU fan, I want absolutely no parts of Mike Adams.

Don't know about that. I looked at last years visitees and only three of our draftees were on the list (curtis brown, cortez allen, marcus gilbert). Two UDFAs cane off visits also.
