I thought it would be a fun exercise to get a group consensus pick for every round. I'll start with round 1. I've compiled a list based on the most commonly mocked guys to the Steelers in round 1. I've left off guys that are very unlikely to drop. (i.e. Barnett, Reddick, Howard, etc.) Apologies if I left off your guy. Wink

Please include suggestions for round 2 (or later) and then after we do this one, I'll do one for every round in succession. At the end, we'll have our Group Consensus Mock.

Better yet, if you would like to volunteer to take a round, by all means, go for it, just let me know which one you want.

Ready, Fire, Aim!

Didn't notice Humphrey on the board ... I voted peppers but I'd probably choose Humphrey

I went with Njoku. It think we can get a good CB and Edge rusher in 2-3. Njoku is a different TE than we already have and he can help open up this offense. If We get the pot head back then all the better but if not then this guy becomes even more important.

Give me Humphrey. He's would solidify LCB opposite Burns for the foreseeable future. Very talented and very young - only 20 - 21 in July. And physical. Not many guys like this in the draft.

There are enough good Edge guys to wait until Rd. 2 To me, there are two good groups of OLBs in this draft Tier 1: Rd 1-2 & Tier 2: Rd 4-7.

I went with Tre'davious White. He would be an instant starter rather in slot or boundary. Very quick and solid cover guy. The best man and zone CB in that grouping.

Coneley-Watt-White-Njoku are all in a tier above the rest...

I'd say Coneley-Njoku are BPAs but Coneley fits a bigger need.

EDIT:Didn't notice King...he'd be a great pick too.

Both Edge Rusher and CB are very deep positions. I have Williams rated higher than Humphrey on my board. However, I would not be disappointed with drafting Humphrey #1 at all.

He is a very solid prospect. I don't understand how Gareon Conley has shot past him on some mock draft and position boards.

I don't see Tim Williams as being another Randy Gregory or even Martavis Bryant for getting in trouble recently or being in the leagues substance abuse protocol. Based on pure talent the guy should be a top ten or fifteen talent. For that reason, I selected TIm Williams as my choice, assuming that all of the "off the field stuff" checks off.

Taco for me easily.

In fact if he's still there I think its a major steal. I got him as the 3rd pass rusher behind Thomas and Garrett.

Hahahahaha.

Jones' only chance is to go to Tenn. Otherwise he is flipping burgers this fall.

I went with McCaffrey. Insurance policy for Bell and an elite slot receiver and return man to get Brown off return duties if Bell sticks around. Best player in the draft if he's used right, and he'd be a perfect fit with the Steelers, with or without Bell.

Alright, I'm going to make the call:

GCM: (Group Consensus Mock)

"With the 30th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select Marlon Humphrey, cornerback, Alabama."
