A Steelers 2014 Mock Draft From A Green Bay Packers Fan

Steelers Mock Draft 2014
As I continue to go mock draft nuts here on this draft, I am going to step outside of the Packers own division and take a look at other teams across the league. This week, let’s do a mock draft for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Packers opponent in their most recent Super Bowl victory. I have always had a soft spot for the Steelers, and they are one of my favorite teams outside of the Packers. This is based on no trades, and I would like to point out that the Steelers will probably trade back, as they have many needs and only six draft choices as of right now.

Round One: Marquise Lee/WR/USC- Big Ben is running low on targets to throw the ball to. Lee has the makings of a complete NFL wide receiver and would go a long way towards fixing that problem.

Round Two: Lamarcus Joyner/CB/Florida State- The Steelers need to get younger across the board on defense. Joyner, who was an integral member of the Florida State national championship team, just smells of a Steelers corner- nicely sized, tough, and physical.

Round Four: E.J. Gaines/CB/Missouri- Continuing our defensive theme about the Steelers needing to get younger across the board on defense, we go back to the cornerback position. The biggest area of need on defense for the Steelers in this department is defensive back, and Gaines would go a long way to fixing that.

Round Five: Kenny Ladler/FS/Vanderbilt- You didn’t think I was done on the defensive side of the ball, did you? Well, the Steelers also could use some depth at safety.

Round Six: Ed Stinson/DE/Alabama- No I’m not done yet on the defensive side of the ball. The Steelers could use some depth on the defensive line and Stinson has the size and skill to play defensive end in a 3-4 scheme.

Round Seven: Tevin Reese/WR/Baylor- Yet another wide receiver for Big Ben.
