Andrew Jackson, is staying in school.

I like Swearinger but 2nd seems a bit high

thanks for telling me, jebrick.

I edited, changed from Andrew Jackson to Aaron Mellette, the wide receiver.

I'm personally not too fascinated with the idea of drafting a safety in round 2 alone but he fits our system very well. It may be a reach from such perception but he's a right player within our system and will have an immediate impact.

Also keep that in mind... If we do not go for Jesse Williams and go with a receiver (I'm hoping the Steelers would surprise us, especially me on this one) and go with either D. Hopkins from Clemson, K. Allen from California, or C. Patterson from Tennessee) and I expect to substitute 4th round with Kapoor Lewis-Moore from Notre Dame. It's technically an interchangable mock for me. We need to draft at least a D-lineman for depth purpose anyway.

I like your mock for the must part gator. I'm a bug fan of Aaron Mellette. He had a lot of promise.

Oh yeah, I think he won't stir up much of hype like Brian Quick due to better media coverage and Quick's style seem more attractive compared to Mellette but man, Mellette is a player who can overproduce his potentials due to his blue-collar attitude and complete focus (ala cortez Allen version of WR) and with his size, it is nice having that kind of player!

damn. That doesn't seem like a wise choice to me. Confused

A his point I think Swearinger will be there for he steelers in the 3rd or Joshua Evans

I'd rather wait until 3rd round or later too, but its likely to be a safety in round 2. It was between DJ Swearinger or Shamarko Thomas.

Any thoughts on Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State? Seems like a good prospect, he's listed on the sleepers article on the front page. 3rd/4th rounder?

Phillip Thomas isn't really a sleeper, neither is Marqus Hunt.

The list is somewhat incorrect.

However Phillip Thomas fits best for a centerfield Free safety role. We move our safety around a lot so I don't know how that works within Thomas' strength. Definitely has some potentials though, better comparison would be Jairus Byrd who benefited a lot from being a centerfield Free Safety but doesn't really affect in other aspects of game at least from what I saw.

why doesn't this team need a better FS center field type ball hawk than Ryan Clark who has never been that type of FS?

Phillip Thomas, Swearinger or Joshua Evans, in the 3rd would be good selections IMO.

I like Robert Golden and believe he'll be a player next season. He already has done a few things schematically that I like. He's line up at nickle CB and FS which would allow the Steelers to maybe test some new ground.

The Steelers need a SS, someone who can back up Troy!

Besides his athleticism the thing that I like most about Swearringer is his fire/enthusiasm, something that I believe this team is lacking. This roster needs a Peezy.

i like him also but I'm not comfortable with him being a future starter at this point. He can be like one of the last DBs that can be the 4th or 5th cb and a FS if needed but this team needs talented young players at safety.
I'm concerned with not only Troys injury history but Clark's age. If either go down it greatly hurts the defense.

i definitely agree with that. Elam from Florida has that also. Some tenacity

... Turtle28 have you seen how we used our safeties?

We don't leave safeties isolated anymore, not at least since Chris Hope. If we switch back, maybe Elam and P. Thomas will be a good fit.

Right now I only see two being good fit and versatile for our scheme, that's DJ Swearinger and Shamarko Thomas.

Funny you mentioned this, Turtle28. WHICH safety will be benched for one of our rookie safety? None this season barring injury and that's even questionable if we keep Will Allen. DJ Swearinger and Shamarko Thomas will be easily benched in first season but will be likely to contribute in future once they got their feet wet.

Hate to be that guy, but don't get the love for Elam...? Not a good fit.

I watched a game with So. Car vs Georgia in which, in 3 plays, he got a personal foul, a pick 6, and a personal foul. Three plays. Fire, yes. Under control? No.
