My head would explode if the Steelers took Swearinger in the 1st. Way too early for him

I love Kruger and Hopkins. The rest... meh.

Hate Swearinger in the 1st round.

The rest is solid, for the most part.

Why would we draft another DE early? We already have one we dont use enough.

NT is a much bigger need than DE at this point.

Change Swearinger to Jesse Wiliams and poof! solid draft!! If we drafted Swearinger in the 1st, you're username is right. Maybe Rich Gannon would be killed! Laughing

I agree with Jebrick about Swearinger plus I don't think they would restructure Troy. He only has 2 years left on his contract and a restructure would hand cuff them with the cap in 2014. Now I could see them give him an extension.

I do like Shamarko Thomas. I'm not sold on Chase Thomas and I think Brian Winters will be gone in the 4th.

The only thing I dont like about this mock is the first round pick. Too early for him i agree. As stated, replace him with Williams and its a very good draft. I actually like Chase Thomas.

The only picks I'm in love with are Hopkins in 2, Thomas in 5, and Stoneburner in 6. Swearinger is a 3rd rounder, probably 6th or 7th safety off the board. Hate the idea of taking Williams in 1, because I firmly believe he will be there in 2. And for those of you who disagree with me, one word: Ta'amu. Boards were lighting up because we didn't take him in the second last year, when we ended up with him in the 4th. Nose tackles, unless incredibly elite (or a workout wonder) just don't have the value.
