I figured I'd toss in a trade to keep things interesting. Feedback is most welcome, especially if it's intelligent.

Pittsburgh trades 1.17 to Minnesota for 1.23 and 3. 21. Minnesota selects: Keenan Allen Wide Receiver, Cal.

With their first pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

1.17 John Jenkins -NT Georgia



2.16 Terrence Williams- WR Baylor



3.17 Brian Schwenke- OL Cal



3.21 Darius Slay- CB Mississippi State



4. 18 Mike Gillislee- RB Florida



5.17 A.J. Klein- ILB Iowa State



6.18 Eric Martin -DE/OLB Nebraska



7.17 Curtis McNeal- RB USC

Any mock with Geathers as.a.1 is not good. Your list is blue collar and has some good picks. Love the RB, Slay is a Allen clone with alil more quickness, Klein is solid but Steelers discrimunate with their ILBs (I want Shane Skov), Williams is a beast, and I am looking forward to watching your McNeal guy. I like it. Good job.

Perhaps that picture was misnoted, but I have John Jenkins as my first round guy, the other DT from Georgia. I wouldn't be mad at Allen and Slay as my corners in 2-3 years. It'd be similar to how Seattle has Sherman and Browner. I can't help but think Klein if nothing else, would be a solid special teams guy. I couldn't decide how I felt on Williams, it seemed like he went down often to avoid getting hit after a catch, rather than trying to fight through it, but I could be way off on that. I couldn't find a lot on McNeal, but the little I did read, he sounds nasty, ala James Harrison. Not saying he'd be as good, but just that similar mean streak. Thanks for the feedback

I don't know if I want Jenkins in the first but I love the rest of the draft, especially Klein.

Klein just seems like a Steeler LB
