I think Hakeem Nicks will show the greatest immediate and long-term ROI of all the WRs in the draft. If the Steelers go WR in R1, I hope they get HN.

I have seen Robiskie in the first for us in at least one Mock.  Personally, I dont like it.  While there may be truth in a top C being available in round 2 (although I would hate to miss out on both Wood and Mack, and my belief is that both may be gone by our pick in round 2), I think we have more pressing needs to address in round one.

Let us assume that a top Center will be there for us in 2 (really can't be predicted with 100% accuracy, but for shits and giggles I'll play).  Also, let us assume that no other O-Lineman grants round 1 value for us.  Rather than go WR in round 1, I think it would be in better interest to go D-Line (Gilbert) or DB (either best corner or FS available) in that spot.  Perhaps a better move (value wise) would be to trade back for a mid round 2 seclection, coupled with other pick(s), although I dont know that I see that happening either.

C and WR are both deep this year.  If we take Robiskie or Nicks or some other WR we love (not my druthers, but whatever), then we have opportunities at C later.  But I'd rather go Mack or Wood in R1, and get a WR later. 

Which would you rather have?

1. Robiskie (or Nicks)
2. Levitre
3. Mickens
4. Shipley

OR:

1. Wood (or Mack)
2. Levitre
3. Mickens
4. OT Gardner
5. WR Quan Cosby

Point being, I think you can get WRs who can come in and contribute later, deeper, than the last best centers.
