Left-of-center, too smart for its own good.

1. Arden Key, OLB/DE, LSU. KC and company just drooling at this kid dropping from a potential 2017 top 10 pick to pick 28.
2. Josey Jewell, ILB, Iowa. Under the radar, but big conference producer
3. Kyzir White, SS, West Virginia. Could the Steelers join the modern NFL and have a cover SS?
5a. Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama. Relatively low-mileage, early entrant. Another Bell in the rough?
5b. Daurice Fountain, WR, Northern Iowa. Tallish WR with some deep speed.
7a. Darius Jackson, ILB, Jacksonville State. Hedging bets and build depth.
7b. Kahlil McKenzie Jr., DT, Tennessee. Big boy complement to Hargrave.

Funny thing is: there's only one player from those two mocks I'd be happy about, and maybe 2-3 I'd be okay with.

Yeah the only guy I really like in this one is Fountain.

Has anyone mock drafting taken into consideration the potential depth already on the roster? Adams, Galambos, Kelsey, Huguenin... are we seeing any of these players potentially breaking onto the roster? There's 2 ILB's and 2 Edge rushers.... plus the starters. I realize they'll target LB'ers and hopefully a couple safety prospects but why are we fixated on drafting 2 even 3 LB'ers this draft is my question.

I've been curious about this same topic. I don't know much about the guys you listed. Can anyone provide any insight into them?

I don't think Adams is an edge rusher. I think he's a dime LB or maybe an ILB backup... long-term. He is a blitzer, not a rusher, if you get me. Galambos is like a lesser version of Dirty Red. Kelsey & Hugenin might be developed into something but I think they are JAGs and STs fodder. We need a BIG upgrade at LB depth. Like three LBs, minimum, including one who can start at Mack ILB and not be embarrassing.

Pretty much where I'm at as well.

The depth on defense sucks at every position except maybe corner.
They had to pick up and start Spence who was sitting on his couch for the playoffs.
OLB depth sucks
Safety depth sucks. DT depth sucks.

Conversely, CB is the deepest ever, maybe. right up there.

Dare I contemplate trading Artie Burns for a S or LB?

Any Artie Burns defenders left?

To their defense I believe both Adams and Galambos were both IR'd the entire season. Even if they wanted to play they weren't gonna get the opportunity. The others I agree to a point. They are All still very young and still have to learn their craft if you will. I still think the Steelers take only 2 LB'ers in the draft. Not including UDFA's and guys that are invited for 'tryouts'.

The inside linebacker draft in 2018 is fantastic
Pass rusher is pathetic
Safety is decent you better get one quick
I actually think the corner crop is deep...I dont like the top 1/2

Steelers are fucked when it comes to pass rusher

Player I am starting to like more

Ja'von Rolland-Jones Arkansas State

He took a big jump this year. He went from a guy who would flash once in a while as a pass rusher to a better all around player.

I don't have too many secret draft crushes this year-- not enough time to dig.

I do have a few that no one has mentioned, which is rare these days.
