    Well only two picks left before the Steelers - Carolina (PWP) and Atlanta (numbah58)... I'm sure PWP would love for the steelers to have a fullback, so I don't think he'll pick Diehl for Carolina and Atlanta doesn't need a fullback.

    My vote goes to Chad Diehl, FB as well. I also agree that he may be a good candidate for one of our actual 7th round picks, but for mock draft purposes, I don't think we can go wrong with the only "true" fullback in the draft.

    My vote is Randy Bullock, K, Texas A&M

    Bullock was the AP's All-American First-Team selection at kicker after being one of the most accurate kickers in college football in 2011. He made 29-of-33 field goal attempts.

    Diehl would be there in the 7th, so no reason to use a pick on him now... I like him but no reason to reach on a block FB when one could probably be found as an UDFA.

    Just to screw up the system, my vote goes for Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina. What the Steelers have been missing is a 6' 3" WR with decent speed.

    I second Dwight Jones, WR, UNC.

    85 catches, 1,200 yard, 12 TDs last year in a BCS conference.

    Cyrus Gray. RB. I forget the University off the top on my head. I still feel the team needs another running back.

    Talking WR's, how is Dwight Jones any better or worse than Devier Posey (Ohio State) or Jeff Fuller (Texas A&M)? All three are 4.5 ish guys 6'2 or taller.

    I thought Devier Posey had already been picked. We had to choose one. Anyhow, could you imagine a steelers jersey with Posey on the back?

    True, but we won't make it to the 7th in this draft, and it would just feel good to draft a FB because we know that the real team won't do it.

    I'm not so sure Diehl will be there for us in the 7th. I'm willing to bet a least one GM out there can see the light in the position, and Diehl's the best prospect. I'd say it's 50-50.

    Will change my vote to Diehl, because we need a FB, and with no 7th round, might ass well get him now. And btw, as soon as you post Pitt, Philly is ready to make their selection, unless you want to call it closed.

    Its pretty much between K and FB in my eyes.

    I've seen Diehl being a low 7/FA pick...there are many other FBs ranked ahead of him.

    As far as K is concerned...there arent as many good ones in this draft...Bullock was the top kicker, made the AP's All-American First-Team, and was the most accurate in college.

    With that being said and I think a solid K is a bigger need and can impact games more than a FB...

    I'm going with K Bullock!

    No changing votes...you can only change if I say Ok theres only 2 guys or whatever to pick from and allow vote changes...or the player you voted for gets taken. And Pitt will be the final pick of the draft...sorry..just keeping it simple.

    I was worried that the real draft would work out like this fantasy one, but holy crap was I wrong! Nothing wrong with Hightower/Smith in the 1st and 2nd, but I think I'd take DeCastro and Adams over those two any day of the week.
