      Will Jake Butt be able to play in 2017?
      I doubt it , but thats the only reason he has a chance to be available at that spot in the draft , I think the trio of Grimble , Green and James gives us enough in terms of ability and depth to wait a year on him if we where able to snag him at that juncture

      Then I would opposed to drafting him, too many immediate needs.
      I can understand that logic as well .... personally I feel if you can land 2nd round talent in the late 4th it precludes it from being a luxury pick even though you may have to wait a year for it to blossom esp when you land your next edge , press corner and heir apparent at QB ahead of him ...

      the 7th rounder Staples is an interesting kid , flashes good speed , nice rangy size who had some production but it was stifled do to the system could be a real sleeper in this class

    • If Christian McCaffrey falls, I'd pick him in a heartbeat. They could use his skillset; Tomlin is going to run whatever is left of Bell's wheels off of him this season, and it would be worth it just to keep a guy like that out of New England.

    • 1. (30) Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
      McCaffrey is aversatile talent who has a skill set that complements Le’Veon Bell, so he wouldprovide another offensive weapon. Too Good to pass up at 30.
      2. (62) Chad Hansen, WR, California
      Going offense againbecause the combination of need and value makes Hansen too good to pass up.
      3. (94) Kevin King, CB/S, Washington
      Has the size andposition flexibility the Steelers like. Very productive career. Solid tackler.
      4. (133) Noble Nwachukwu, Edge, West Virginia
      Shorter than theideal height at 6’ 2”, but makes up for it in explosiveness.
      5. (174) Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland
      Basketball skillsshow up in the red zone.
      5. (182) Jeremy Cutrer, CB, Middle Tennessee
      Might be moresuited for the safety position, but would be an immediate special teamscontributor. Again, position flexibility makes him attractive despite comingfrom a small school program.
      6. (213) Garrett Sickels, Edge, Penn State
      Brett Keisel 2.0
      7. (250) Damarius Travis, S, Minnesota
      Picked a nameout of a hat.
