    I have a question, why are there many mocks have us taking one TE and one slot WR or a big WR. We already have 4 young WR already on the roster. Wouldn't selecting two a 2 TEs make more sense since Vance is likely gone, same for Vannette. They can split wide or line up in the slot, all the while learning how to become a complete TE that block.

    We need a field stretcher. Speed. See KC chiefs. Speed kills. We have average speed at wr at the NFL level. :cool:

    Yep. Speaking of KC, I was banging the table last year to grab Mecole Hardman in the 2nd last year. Then they gave up their 2nd.

    National media mocks or Steeler fan mocks or both? I don't put any stock into the national ones tbh. They rarely go in-depth for each team and just mention the skill positions for the most part.

    I think a lot of the problem is our old school TE coach. Daniels has been around forever. His background is TEs and offensive line coaching. I'd love to see us add a younger guy as an assistant to him with some experience with these receiving TEs. :cool:
