Without further ado... my steelers mock.
1. Earl Thomas, FS, Texas
----Is only a sophmore but draft eligible. One of the top talents available and is a ballhawk. Has room to improve because of inexperience with only 2 seasons playing. Will be a true free safety in the backfield.
2. Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State
----A strong football player with good speed, 4.42, that can morph into a true shutdown corner.
3. Ciron Black, OT, LSU
----Big mauling lineman. With a new offensive coordinator that prefers to run first, lineman will be drafted with that in mind. This guy is 6'5" and 315 pounds. He is a strong tackle and could even play guard.
4. Noel Devine, RB, WVU
----Although he was bore the brunt of running for West Virginia he is too small for that in the NFL. However he is silly fast and could have a shot at beating Mike Wallace in a race at 5'8". He could possibly run a 4.2 in the combine. He would take over for Willie Parker and Stefan Logan and help with blazing speed in both categories, saving us a roster spot. Our version of Darren Sproles.
4b. Jay Ross, NT, East Carolina
----(Bryant McFadden Compensatory) Plays with true work ethic and a good motor. Is able to rush the quarterback. Also returned a fumble for 42 yards to the house. Could anyone of you see Casey Hampton doing that? Didn't think so. Could probably contribute on every down.
5. Pat Angerer, ILB, Iowa
----With all of the talent in this draft, less needed positions are likely to see some players fall. Pat Angerer started playing in his junior season and has racked up over 100 tackles in his junior and senior year. He had 5 picks in his junior year and pick and 2 forced fumbles his senior year. Sitting behind Farrior and Timmons this guy could learn the best from both. Plus we already know he looks good in black and gold
5b. Vladimir Ducasse, OG, UMass
----(Larry Foote Compensatory) Another large punishing run blocker. Seeing a theme? This guy is even bigger than Ciron Black coming in a 330lbs. Tell me someone that big couldn't block for a 220 lb running back.
5c. Taylor Price, WR, Ohio
----(Nate Washington Compensatory) WR who can actually catch. Another Mike Wallace type receiver at 6'1 that can run a 4.3. Price nearly broke school records for career receptions and touchdown receptions. Will become either 4th or 5th receiver depending on Sweed's development.
6. Greg Middleton, DE, Indiana
----After receiving national attention for a nation high 16 sacks his sophomore year, Middleton has fallen off the radar. Since that season he had only 7 sacks in both his junior and senior season. Perhaps with proper coaching he can return to true form and reeneter national spotlight on Sunday's.
7. Scott Sicko, TE, New Hampshire
----A solid receiving tight end. Has quite a few touchdowns with 7 in his 2008 season alone. Plus thats a cool last name.
Alrighty tell me your thoughts please
