These are my picks of what I think the Steelers will do -- not necessarily what i would do.

1.32  - S William Moore, Missouri

I think the Steelers suprise everyone with their first pick, going with a an athletic phenom to develop into Ryan Clark's replacement at FS.

2.32 DE Fili Moala, USC

3.32 G Louis Vasquez, Texas Tech

4.32 DE Everette Pedescleaux, Northern Iowa


5.32 WR Brooks Foster, UNC


5.39 CB Glover Quinn, New Mexico


6.32 NT Daryl Richard, Georgia Tech

 7.32 RB Marlon Lucky, Nebraska

7.40 TE Davon Drew, East Carolina


1.32  - S William Moore, Missouri
Height: 6-01/8 | Weight: 221 | 40-Time: 4.53
