Here is a list of Players I would draft at 15 (in order) for the Steelers.

Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech (Will be Gone)
Gaines Adams, Clemson (Will be Gone)
Joe Thomas, Wisconsin (Will be Gone)
Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma (Will be Gone)
Alan Branch, Michigan (Will be Gone)
Lawrence Timmons, Florida State
Adam Carriker, Nebraska
Jamaal Anderson, Arkansas
Patrick Willis, Mississippi (ILB is not a major need, but he is too good to pass up if no one else is available)


ON THE BUBBLE
Jon Beason, Miami(FL)
Ben Grubbs, Auburn (alittle high for him, but teams are starting to draft OG's higher)
Jarvis Moss, Florida
Amobi Okoye, Louisville

You may notice that I left all the CB's off my list. I am not a huge fan of any of them and I think Pittsburgh has bigger needs.

Okoye in, Timmons out
Beason no way at #15
I like Grubbs but not at #15
I could live with Moss, not at #15 either.

Short list, just reinofrces the trade up or down theory.

I think I down played him because he is not big enough for a NT and I DO NOT want Pittsburgh to change to the 4-3 Tampa 2 defense.

I don't want Pittsburgh to trade up. I just don't see anyone who is worth giving up a 2nd or 3rd round pick for. I would love to trade down and pick up an additional 2nd or 3rd round pick and then use them to trade up in the 2nd round. That is where the best value is.

I would like to see Jamaal Anderson.

IMO CB is as important as ILB if Anderson isn't there we go with Willis or Revis.

Redskins #6 pick for Gaines Adams if he's there?

Leaving out those obviously not going to be available:

Jamaal Anderson
Adam Carriker
Patrick Willis
Alan Branch
David Harris
Levi Brown

Not advocating selecting any particular player, but we'd at least have to consider picking these guys before we moved out of the spot.

We need to aggressively move up in one of the early rounds if it's possible.

No. Too much value to trade, with too little return.

I'd use our third to move up a couple of spot in either 1 or 2, but wouldn't sacrifice both picks for Adams (or any other player not named Johnson).

I like Jamaal Anderson a little more than Gaines Adams. No point in trading up for GA if JA will be there.
