3pm ET Thursday edition

The NFL in its infinite wisdom decided to go with the NFL Channel only this year.

The Steelers hold picks #20 – 1st, #51 – 2nd, #84 – 3rd, #120 & #121 – 4th, #197 – 6th, #238 – 7th. They really need to hit those picks in the first four rounds again this season.

Today we have DL and LBs, I don’t think they’ll choose an OLB this draft but they need an DL and ILB. Unfortunately, there isn’t a ton of DL or ILBs that fit available.

DL of some interest:

  • T’Vondre Sweat: Texas – 6’ 4”, 362lbs. If he falls to 51 it might be too much to resist. I don’t think he will though.
  • McKinnley Jackson: Texas A&M – 6’ 2” 325lbs. Could be an option at 84.
  • Khristian Boyd: Northern Iowa – 6’ 2” 320. Someone to look at 238.

ILBs to watch: All look like 3rd round products.

  • Jeremiah Trotter Jr.: Clemson – 6’ 0” 230lbs. Probably will be gone before 84.
  • Junior Colson: Michigan – 6’ 2” 235lbs.
  • Cedric Gray: North Carolina – 6’ 2” 232lbs.

Let us know who you’re keeping an eye on so we can watch too.
