Our pick comes, and we find this scenario...

Milliner slips and is available. So is Warmack, Patterson and Teo.
Jesse Williams hasn't been picked nor has Vecarro.

Your pick?

Warmack without question BPA. If this was a perfect world i'd trade down because there would potentially still be a very good player available.

Milliner.

Can't have too many Corners.

The pressure on signing Lewis would not be too high then, though in a perfect world we still would AND keep Ike. That gives us 4 good corners next year. Year after, we cut Ike or don't resign him and we have possibly the best corner trio in the league IF Lewis and Cortez keep up the level of play and Cortez continues to improve.

But, in that situation, I would be happy with Milliner, Warmack, Patterson or Williams.

Overall, I am looking forward to this draft it appears we are going to be in a situation where there are many players that would help this team available at 17.

We could get the best, G, S, ILB, TE, WR, RB or NT. Pretty nice situation really.

Heck, we could trade down and still have a shot at some of the best of the positions. Or we would be in line for the second best of fairly equal talent.

Without hesitation I would select Warmack despite my gut telling me to go Vaccaro and despite the praise I've given him.

Alternatively I'd take Milliner. BUT I also agree with MightyJoeYoung.

If all of those guys were still on the board, I'd trade back and make my decision a little easier while picking up a couple extra picks.

Try to trade down 2-3 spots Very Happy

If I could not trade back... Given the depth at OG and WR in the draft I would go with Williams.

But the Steelers will stay true to their list. If Warmack is highest on the list then he will get drafted. If Peterson is highest then he will get drafted.

Im sorry but the chance that Warmack OR Millner is available at our pick is unlikely but the chance of both of them, well there's a better chance 3Rivers won't make another Oline thread within the next year.

I think it is well within the realms of possibility that Warmack is available at our pick.

Contrary to many posters opinion,our biggest need is not a position,it's a playmaker. If the biggest playmaker in this draft slips to 17? No-brainer. You don't take a freaking guard over a playmaker like CP. Millner has an argument. People like to over think these situations. Thankfully, I'm confident the PS realize the value a guy like CP would bring,and that goes beyond his big play abilities.

I agree we need a playmaker the most but the Steelers typically go with "safer" 1st round picks.

For this scenario, if the Steelers lost Lewis, I'd go Millner...perfect fit IMO.

If not, I'd lean towards Patterson, next Warmack and still have no problems with any of the other listed players.

Vaccaro growing on me as well.

I honestly don't think too many people would disagree with that in regards to a Guard. When it comes to Jesse Williams, you'll get some disagrees.

You won't find me disagreeing with you actually, I do think we really lack that 'difference maker' type Playmaker. I agree with what you said there. But, I've said before, I'm satisfied with our season, not excited, not thrilled, just satisfied. We faced a lot of adversity and we did with it what we could, which didn't result in a losing season statistically. Going into the draft, I'm fully prepared to accept almost any pick they make. Hey..there could be a couple of dumb picks..but it's not often the Steelers commit such things in the 1st round.

LOL! Don't get me started on this, I think we all know how I feel about Vaccaro. I may be one of the few that feel as strongly about him being our pick as I do. I think he'd be a great fit, could play SS, and if we added Baccari Rambo in the 3rd...ZOMG...just sayin'...now that you got me started Wink

If anyone caught Mike Tannenbaum's mock draft on NFL Network last night, he has both Demontre Moore and Bjoern Werner falling out of the top 10! I would be on the phone the second one of them was drafted, trying to move up for the other one.
