WCG Mock Draft - The Pittsburgh Steelers Select...

CURRENT SELECTION


Alex Mack
Cal
Center

ANALYSIS: Part of the reason I picked the Steelers for the mock draft is because it should be easy to pick for them. The reigning Super Bowl Champs, what are their strengths? They have the number one defense, a good, sometimes great QB and some good receivers (although Ward is getting up there in years) so their strengths are many but their weaknesses? Well Roethlisberger was sacked 46 times last season, second most in the league behind Cassel. I think that had a lot to do with Big Ben's poor TD-INT ratio (17-15). So they need to shore up the line if they want Big Ben to last in this league and open holes for their backs. The way this mock has gone so far there aren't any first round-grade tackles left and while a guard is a possibility, the mocks I looked at all had the Steelers taking a center and who better than the number one ranked center.

Other possibilities: Guard, CB, WR? (Duke Robinson, Darius Butler, Britt)
