I would love to see these picks in the upcoming draft and I think they are highly likely as well. At the end of it i noticed it is primarily defensive, but that makes sense because I think our defense is in really dire need given the retirements and just age and health of our boys. We are a defensive team lets keep it that way. Only doing 5 rounds. 1st Round: Dont'a Hightower, ILB, Alabama Now don't get me wrong if DeCastro is here when we pick it would be very hard to pass on him but I think it is more likely we get the ILB. Hightower will be BPA at this point in the draft also and I think everyone would be happy with this pick. 2nd Round: Alameda Ta'amu, NT, Washington DL is staying, Keith Butler is staying... the 3-4 is staying. Casey Hampton has a torn ACL and is most likely done or at least will be in another year. The cog of the 3-4 starts up front with the NT and besides Dontari Poe, Ta'amu is the one of the only big DL talents that can fill a NT spot in the draft. He would actually be really good value here. 3rd Round: Amini Silatolu, G, Midwestern State Yeah our defense has holes to fill but our line has needed talent for years now. We are hopefully okay at tackle with Colon coming back and hopefully Pouncey can stay healthy but we REALLY need depth at guard. Hopeing Silatolu is there at this spot is kind of a stretch, but its possible. We may be even to package some type of trade to move up a bit to get him but the Steelers are not really known for doing that. If Silatolu isn't there at this spot and we don't/can't move up I would look at Brandon Brooks from Miami (Ohio), he is HUGE 350+ guy who can move well for such a big frame. 4rd Round: Casey Heyward, CB, Vanderbilt This pick seems like more of the same, drafting corners in the middle rounds and having them sit around on the roster and eventually cut. I know we have some young guys already waiting in the wings but you can never have too much talent at the corner position and hopefully the FO starts realizing that... especially in today's NFL. I think Heyward can be a "diamond in the rough" type prospect. He is not very tall but he plays big kind of like Brandon Flowers on the Chiefs. 5th Round: Tremaine Thomas, FS, Alabama We need depth at safety. He played FS at Alabama and had 5 picks out of the 11 Alabama had on defense, and we also need more turnovers. Clark and Troy are both getting up there in age but I am not sure if Thomas could convert to SS if needed but I do not see why he couldn't. I will be updating these picks as we get closer to draft day and will add in the rest of our picks.
