  1. Last week
  2. Another great one, I would not mind Dillon at all!
  3. Round 1, Pick 18, Traded to Miami Round 2, Pick 49 Antoine Winfield Jr., S, Minnesota, R-Sophomore Height: 5-9. Weight: 203. 40 Time: 4.45. NFL Draft Grade: 6.36. Value: 1.83 Others: Ross Blacklock, DL, TCU, Grant Delpit, S, LSU, Jacob Eason, QB, Washington Winfield reminds me of Tyrann “The Honey Badger” Mathieu – except with NFL Bloodlines! Antoine like Tyrann is an instinctive Defensive Back with excellent, athletic talent to play more than one position in the Defensive Backfield. He is a quick-twitch athletic, with excellent foot quickness along with the unique combination of speed and quickness that only a few athletes possess. Antoine is a ball hawk with the hands to intercept the ball as good as any receiver in this draft. Those competent hands also lend themselves to returning punts and along with his return and special Teams skills will add value to his overall game that should be attractive to all 32 teams. Because Antoine is an instinctive and aggressive tackler, he can play up near the line of scrimmage, supporting the run and in coverages against those pesky running backs coming out of the backfield. He can and will fight through blocks and make tackles on sweeps and screens because he anticipates and understands blocking assignments of his opponents on offense. Antoine is one of the better Defensive Backs/ safeties in this draft. If I needed a safety and this kid was on the board in the 1st round, your damn straight I would select him. I don’t believe in passing on proven playmakers especially on the defensive side of the board – especially when the Steelers have a need there. Round 3, Pick 83, Traded to Denver Round 3, Compensatory Pick 102 J.K. “All Day” Dobbins, RB, OSU, Junior Height: 5-9. Weight: 217. 40 Estimated Time: 4.45-4.5. Draft Grade: 6.35. Value 1.97 Others: Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin, Raekwon Davis, DL Alabama, Malik Harrison, LB, OSU J.K. is a talented, powerful, running back with just enough wiggle after he hits the whole to run strong between the tackles. Also, coming out as a Junior, he has fewer miles on him than Wisconsin RB, Jonathan Taylor. He has the speed to take the ball to the outside on sweeps and after he hits the hole you better be ready to tackle him or he will take it all the way for a touchdown. He uses that breakaway speed and quickness to gain yardage in chunks when he catches the ball out of the backfield also. J.K. might be one of the better blocking backs for his quarterback, because of his lateral agility and overall strength, in spite of his size. He reminds me a lot of Mark Ingram and like Mark, if he is in the right system for his talents, he will be an impact player for that team. Mark Ingram is a good running back and J.K. should be a good running back also because both of them are complete running backs. They run the ball between the tackles with strength, they break tackles in the secondary, they block, they catch the ball out of the backfield. Round 4, Pick 114 Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota, Senior Height: 6-1. Weight: 206. Estimated 40 Time: 4.54. Draft Grade: 6.16 Value: 1.75 Johnson has been a prolific, productive receiver – and is likely the “Steal” of this Draft. He has the size and good straight-line speed. He catches the ball when it’s thrown to him and that is the best attribute ANY receiver can have. Tyler has the size to move the chains and the strength and speed to make yards after the catch by breaking tackles. He has a big catch radius and will adjust to the ball in the air. Inside the red zone or making first downs, he is a matchup nightmare. He’s a good blocker, willingly helping his teammates on running plays sweeps and screens. Tyler is the type of receiver that every team game plan’s for, thinking they will be able to shut him down but once the game begins, he still finds a way to impact using his strong hands and strong body to move the chains and make touchdowns. Tyler has the potential to become a “Franchise” receiver with a little more work on his route running skills. Others: Ben Bredeson, G, Michigan, Anthony McFarland Jr., RB, Maryland, Van Jefferson, WR, Florida Round 4, Pick 125, From Miami through Tennessee. Jacob Breeland, TE, Oregon, r-Senior. Height: 6-5. Weight: 252. Estimated 40 Time: 4.75. Draft Grade: 5.40 Value: 1.73 Others: A.J. Dillon, RB, Boston College, Affernee Jennings, EDGE, Alabama, Leki Fotu, DL, Utah I realize the Steelers have acquired Eric Ebron, but they can always use a solid back-up / potential starter in the pipeline. Breeland has the pass-catching skills equal to any receiver in this draft. He is a fluid athlete with a high football IQ working well with his QB and understanding how to get himself open when the play has broken down. He uses excellent blocking techniques, keeping his feet moving after engaging and finishing his blocks. Jacob has the lateral agility to block in space and, when catching the ball, that lateral agility helps in running his routes and not taking the big hit after gaining yards after the catch. Jacob has strong hands and can adjust to the ball in the air and that adds a big catch radius to his pass-catching skills. He is a nightmare matchup at any point on the field and, a move the chains, touchdown making machine. Jacob is more than just a pass-catching Tight End. His athletic talents and high football IQ send signals that he will become an offensive weapon that teams will have to game plan for in the very near future. Jacob reminds me a lot of Eagles Zack Ertz. He might be a little taller but Jacob’s pass-catching, route running, fluid athletic talent to run routes are very much the same as Zack’s. Jacob like Zack will be more of a threat in the passing game as a matchup nightmare and a player his new quarterback will fall in love with. He is consistent when running routes but what his new coaches are going to love is how quickly Jacob will mesh with his quarterbacks thinking in the context of reading defenses on the fly and adjusting his route to get open and gain extra yards. Round 5, Pick 137, From Jacksonville, traded to Seattle Round 5, Pick 145, Traded to Miami Round 6, Pick 178 Tanner Muse, S/LB, Clemson, R-Senior Height 6-2 Weight 227 40 Time: 4.41. Draft Grade: 5.80. Value: 1.92 Others: Raekwon Williams, DL, Michigan St., Evan Weaver, LB, California, Brandon Jones, S, Texas Tanner is listed as a safety and can play safety but the truth is, he is an impact linebacker pretending to be a safety. He has been a productive player playing the safety position, making plays all over the field. Tanner is athletic, and he showed at the combine the athletic talent that most analysts assumed he did not process because he was playing out of position. He has excellent speed and quickness along with instincts and football intelligence that comes from three years of being a starter at safety. Tanner has the passion to make tackles in the open field and the aggressiveness to finish without committing penalties. He has the hands to make the interception and the cover skills to stay with those big receivers and Tight Ends who line up in the slot. He shows leadership skills through his play on the field making impact plays that will bring his teammates off the bench to watch the replay on the big screen. Tanner is just an impact defensive player and the position he plays will not affect that impact. Round 7, Pick 209 Jon Runyan Jr., OT, Michigan, R-Senior Height: 6-4. Weight: 308. 40 Time: 5.05. Draft Grade: 5.91. Value: ??? Others: Benito Jones, DL, Missippi, Quez Watkins, WR, Southern Mississippi, Kendall Coleman, EDGE, Syracuse Runyan is the son of the former Michigan star and NFL Pro Bowl right tackle of the same name. The younger Runyan appears to be headed for a long NFL career of his own. The Moorestown, New Jersey, native actually played his high school football at St. Joseph's in Pennsylvania, earning all-state notice his senior year. Michigan signed the legacy pick, though he had to wait through a redshirt season in 2015 and made only one appearance the following year. Runyan played in nine games as a sophomore, starting for the first time in the team's Outback Bowl appearance. He ascended to first-team All-Big Ten status in 2018, starting all 13 games at left tackle. Runyan did the same in 2019, again garnering first-team all-conference honors for the Wolverines.

  5. I could Van Jefferson and Alton Robinson landing exactly where you have them! Nice Mock!
  6. Round 1, Pick 18, Traded to Miami Round 2, Pick 49 Antoine Winfield Jr., S, Minnesota, R-Sophomore Height: 5-9. Weight: 203. 40 Time: 4.45. Draft Grade: 6.36 Others: Zack Baun, LB, Wisconsin, Lloyd Cushenberry III, Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconson The son of former Jim Thorpe Award winner and three-time NFL All-Pro cornerback Antoine Winfield Sr. The Steelers LOVE young players and NFL Bloodlines. This pick would allow the Steelers to move Terrell Edmunds to the Nickle/Dime LB Position. Winfield isn't as tall or as long as teams like, but he's an interchangeable safety who can flat out play! Winfield is stout and strong with above average body control and balance. He can bang on tight ends in coverage and support the run near the box. His angles to the ball are efficient against the run or pass. He's very instinctive and sees plays unfold. His tackle net isn't as wide in the open field, so he must tackle with excellent fundamentals. Winfield isn't a star but he's a quality building block with the toughness and intelligence to help fortify the back end. Round 3, Pick 83, Traded to Denver Round 3, Compensatory Pick 102 Cam Akers, RB, Florida State, Junior Height: 5-10. Weight: 217. 40 Time: 4.47. Draft Grade: 6.35 Others: Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin, Raekwon Davis, DL Alabama, Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State Akers was a Top-10 national recruit after being named the U.S. Army National Player of the Year and Mississippi's Mr. Football in 2016. The dual-threat quarterback threw for 8,140 yards and 78 touchdowns during his career and ran for 5,103 yards and 71 scores. He broke Dalvin Cook's school record for freshman rushing in 2017, leading the Seminoles with 1,024 yards (194 carries, 5.3 per, seven touchdowns; 16 receptions, 116 yards, 7.3 average, one touchdown) to earner third-team All-ACC notice. Akers led FSU in rushing again in 2018, though his production was down considerably (161 carries, 706 yards, 4.4 ypc, six touchdowns; 23 receptions, 145 yards, 6.3 average, two touchdowns, five fumbles in 12 games, 10 starts). He looked more like the Akers of 2017 as a Junior, receiving second-team all-conference honors after leading FSU with 1,144 rushing yards on 231 carries (5.0 ypc) and 14 touchdowns. Akers also caught 30 passes for 225 yards (7.5 per) and four scores in 11 starts. Round 4, Pick 114 Collin Johnson, WR, Texas, Senior Height: 6-6. Weight: 222. 40 Time: 4.58 (Estimated). Draft Grade: 5.95 Collin and his brother, Kirk, wanted to play at UT to follow in their father's footsteps. Johnnie Johnson was an All-American defensive back for the Longhorns, a 10-year NFL veteran, and a member of the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame. Collin's the one whose physical gifts have stuck out to NFL scouts, even though he never earned all-conference honors during his collegiate career. He and quarterback Sam Ehlinger were a strong duo in 2018, with Johnson collecting 68 receptions for 985 yards and seven scores in 13 games (12 starts). He set a Big 12 Championship Game record with 177 yards on nine catches and a score against Oklahoma. Johnson was limited to seven starts as a senior, however, due to a hamstring injury (38 receptions, 559 yards, 14.7 average, three touchdowns). Others: Ben Bredeson, G, Michigan, Anthony McFarland Jr., RB, Maryland, Van Jefferson, WR, Florida Round 4, Pick 125, From Miami through Tennessee. Leki Fotu, DL, Utah, Senior Height: 6-5. Weight: 330. 40 Time: 5.15. Bench: 21. Draft Grade: 6:15 Others: A.J. Dillon, RB, Boston College, Affernee Jennings, EDGE, Alabama, Joe Reed, WR, Virginia Leki Fotu (pronounced leck-ee foe-too) played Rugby, not football, growing up and was good enough to play for the U.S. National Team and train with a team in London. He only played one season of football at Herriman High School and was a first-team All-Utah selection for his efforts. Fotu played five games as a reserve as a true freshman (one tackle) as he learned the game. He contributed more regularly in 2017, starting two of 13 games played (22 tackles, 3.5 for loss). Everything clicked for Fotu as a junior, garnering first-team All-Pac-12 honors with 33 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and three sacks in 14 games (13 starts). Fotu not only repeated that first-team notice but also earned third-team Associated Press All-American recognition in his senior campaign (29 tackles, nine for loss, 1.5 sacks, two pass breakups in 13 starts). Received medical flag at Senior Bowl. Two of Leki's brothers played college football (Joe-Illinois, Anthony-Arizona). Round 5, Pick 137, From Jacksonville, traded to Seattle Round 5, Pick 145, Traded to Miami Round 6, Pick 178 Tanner Muse, S/LB, Clemson, R-Senior Height 6-2 Weight 227 40 Time: 4.41. Draft Grade: 5.80 Others: Raekwon Williams, DL, Michigan St., Evan Weaver, LB, California, Kendall Coleman, EDGE, Syracuse Muse was a first-team All-State defensive player and ran for over 1,200 yards his senior season at South Point High School in North Carolina. As a redshirt freshman in 2016, he received the team's Co-Special Teams Player of the Year award after posting 10 coverage tackles in 15 games (he had 19 total stops on the year). Muse moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore, beginning nine of 14 games played (57 tackles, two for loss, four pass breakups). Clemson won the National Title in 2018, with Muse starting all 15 games and garnering third-team All-ACC honors (61 tackles, 2.5 for loss, two interceptions, five pass breakups). He drew third-team Associated Press All-American and first-team all-conference honors as a senior as he "walloped" 74 ball-carriers (six for losses, two sacks), intercepted a team-high four passes and broke up five others. Round 7, Pick 209 Jon Runyan Jr., OT, Michigan, R-Senior Height: 6-4. Weight: 308. 40 Time: 5.05. Draft Grade: 5.91 Others: Benito Jones, DL, Missippi, Quez Watkins, WR, Southern Mississippi, Javelin Guidry, CB, Utah Runyan is the son of the former Michigan star and NFL Pro Bowl right tackle of the same name. The younger Runyan appears to be headed for a long NFL career of his own. The Moorestown, New Jersey, native actually played his high school football at St. Joseph's in Pennsylvania, earning all-state notice his senior year. Michigan signed the legacy pick, though he had to wait through a redshirt season in 2015 and made only one appearance the following year.

  7. @StayBlack&Gold Great mock and love the video design!!! Keep these coming.
  8. This past Wednesday, the Steelers signed DT Cavon Walker, OT Jarron Jones (both played with the New York Guardians, and S Tyree Kinnel (played with the DC Defenders). On Thursday, they also signed OLB/LS Chrisitan Kuntz (played with the Dallas Renegades). On Friday, they also signed DE Dewayne Hendrix (played with the Seattle BlackHawks). DT Walker was the XFL's sack leader with 4.5 until the league canceled the remainder of the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic. OT Jones was originally a DT in Notre Dame before switching to the other side of the ball and was drafted in the 1st round of the 2020 XFL Draft by the Guardians. Kinnel was one of DC's starting safety's, recording 17 tackles throughout the season. Kuntz, before the XFL, was apart of the Steelers roster last year. With Tyler Matakevich gone, the Steelers will need a new special teams anchor. Most of these signings shouldn't be taken too seriously as the AAF signings last year (ex. Kameron Kelly), didn't pan out well. But with the limited cap space, these signings do provide good depth and some could find their way onto the 53 man roster. Are there any other XFL stars you'd like the Steelers to snag? Maybe a reunion with Eli Rogers?
  9. @Steel Logic Great mock, love the changes in direction regarding all the latest roster moves. Chargers picking QB is a no brainer.
  10. Really good mock! Tanner Muse and JK would be insane picks. Also please note, only share your video/post once and mocks go in the Draft section of the website. Glad to have ya on board!
  11. Hello everyone, Steel Logic back here with my second mock draft post on here for your beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. This one comes after the big wave of free agency and everything is covered up to this point that most of us expected. The Steelers restructured alot of contracts to get under the cap to cover for Bud Dupree's tag as well as freeing up additional cap for future signings. With that being said, we have Mike Hilton and Matt Feiler back for this season under the restricted second round tender. They kicked things off by signing Fullback Derek Watt, Followed by Tackle Zach Banner, Long Snapper Kameron Canaday, Olineman Stefan Wisniewski, Safety Jordan Dangerfield, Tight End Eric Ebron and Dlineman Chris Wormley (Via Trade with Baltimore). With all of that being said, lets dive right into the mock draft. Round 2 Pick 49 The Pittsburgh Steelers select Interior Olineman Matt Hennessy from Temple. Hennessey is a guy that plays really scrappy and that's the kind of guy you want on the interior. It's like the cement to your house's basement, the finishing touches to the foundation. He comes with a high football IQ, has excellent range and is very technically sound. He'll do any job you ask him to and here's how he would be used. With Foster retiring we have a hole at LG and Hennesey can com in and be a day 1 starter in that spot and have the new guy we just signed be his backup. Hennesey can also play center, so what I would do is have Pouncey take Hennesey under his wing and teach him the ropes so he can be ready to take over at center when Pouncey retires. Round 3 Pick 102 (comp pick) The Pittsburgh Steelers select Wide Receiver Van Jefferson from Florida. Jefferson is a guy that will come in and push James Washington and Deon Cain as the next boundary wide receiver behind Juju and Washington. Jefferson can also play in the slot if need be, and our wide receiver group would be really well rounded with Juju, Johnson, Washington, Jefferson, Cain and Switzer. There's alot Jefferson can add to the group with his measurable's standing at 6'2 200. Round 4 Pick 124 The Pittsburgh Steelers select Safety Brandon Jones from Texas. Very smart player, tackles well in space and packs a punch. He has a very aggressive play style but he is smart and knows what not to do. He can pick up and read defenses pretty well from what Iv'e heard in interviews. He would provide the Steelers with depth at the safety position that we need and he can push Edmunds to play better. Jones is a guy that can play as either a single high safety in a cover 1 or cover 2 or as a dime linebacker when you move Edmunds back deep. Round 4 Pick 135 The Pittsburgh Steelers select Edge Rusher Alton Robinson from Syracuse. Robinson is a guy that has an explosive first step but needs to work on his craft with hand usage and how to bend properly. He has a very high ceiling to learn the necessary things and he would be able to do that in Pittsburgh sitting behind Bud as depth and is a much better option than what we have with Skipper and Ola. Round 6 Pick 198 The Pittsburgh Steelers select Line Backer Tanner Muse from Clemson. Big Bodied safety that would be best suited as a LB at the next level. Muse would take over the role that Tyler Matakevich had on special teams and would be a better LB than Matakevich ever was or will be. Muse has alot of speed and has great range being a converted safety. Steelers also met with Muse at Clemson's pro day and took him to dinner. Round 7 Pick 232 The Pittsburgh Steelers select Dlineman Robert Windsor Penn State. Windsor adds much needed youth to the dline and brings in competition for that starting DT spot with Buggs/Alualu and Wormley. Windsor can also be a backup at end for Tuitt and Heyward, he had alot of productivity while at Penn State and created alot of problems in the backfield. He has a very high motor and would help the front seven in terms of stopping the run and that's what this team needs playing in the AFC North.
  12. Ravens fan reaction to the trade lol
  13. The Pittsburgh Steelers have made their first trade of the 2020 NFL off-season! The Steelers have traded their 2021 5th round pick to the Baltimore Ravens for DE Chris Wormley and a 2021 7th round pick. Yes, you read that right. Kevin Colbert pulling out all the stops this off-season. GM making some moves!
  14. The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed TE Eric Ebron to a 2 year, $12M deal. This was made official by NFLNetwork inside reporter Ian Rapoport: This adds experience and dependable depth to a desperate TE group. Luck broke out with Andrew Luck in 2018, receiving his first and only Pro Bowl and collecting 13 TDs!
  15. The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed 2x Super Bowl Champion (with PHI and KC) LG Stefen Wisniewski to an apparent 2 year deal. This was made official by Wisniewski himself on his Twitter: This adds great experience and flexibility to an offesnive line that lost Ramon Foster and BJ Finney just this week.
  16. When we launched the website back in January we always had the vision of creating a live broadcast that would go on 3 to 4 days out of the week. The recent spread of the Coronavirus has created issues with our scheduling and affected us more than we thought it would. With that said, we plan on cutting back on the live streams while still seeking to produce content 1 to 2 times a week. We cannot promise any set dates for the immediate future. Please keep up by checking the forums and following us on Twitter for the latest schedule for our SY LIVE dates and times. Please stay safe and God bless America.
  17. Gotta get rid of Big Dan McCullers somehow
  18. Absolutely! And it seems the Steelers are going all in for one last big run before Ben hangs em up. There's no better time than this upcoming season. If it ends like we all hope, Ben for sure will walk.
