Here we go with my final mock draft of 2012 draft for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Let me start of by disclaimering that I would be floored if I have the same success that had last year, as I picked the first three players correctly, albeit I had rounds two and three flip flopped. I may never be able to duplicate that success again as long as I live. No matter how many player rankings you read and how much tape you watch, you never know how far a player will fall or how high another player may be on another team's draft board and rankings. I know quite a bit about the team needs of all of the teams Read more [...]

  • Steelers First Round Draft Prospect Insider Information

    Here is our thought on tomorrow’s first round of the NFL Draft. There are facts, there are spoken words and there is speculation. The simplest fact is that the Steelers currently hold the 24th pick of the draft. The Steelers are expert at the game of smoke and mirrors. I believe if you go back the past month and review the various quotes from Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert, you will find them mentioning nearly half the positions on a team as needs. They go on to say that they need depth at more than half the other positions on a team. This brings us to speculation. Outside of the actual Steelers Organization, we have seen the mock drafts of hundreds and hundreds of very bright people. I put more faith in the thoughts of a local, die hard fan than any out of town expert IE Mel Kiper, Mike Mayock or Peter King. I say this in all due respect but we know that there is such a connection to the team in this community from so many people that have seen the Steelers in action. I mean this to say week in, week out, month in, month out etc. We the life long Steeler fans have a natural feel for how the Steelers will act in nearly every situation and rarely get suprised. So, the real inside information is US. The problem with US is that we all see things from a personal vantage point and thus we have no concensus. The final fact that we do know is that the Steelers staff will do a great job with the first round selection, be it at the 24th pick or higher or lower. I personally am going to sit back and enjoy the ride. My favorite Steelers type guy is Ronnell Lewis, an Oklahoma linebacker nicknamed “The Hammer”. The odds of him being the Steelers or anyone elses number one pic is low but I do believe his will be a household name for years. I have heard no member of the Steelers organization even mention Ronnell which I hope is part of the smoke and mirror game they play so well. steelersinfodotcom
