I would take these 3 as well.

I think Gallup's stock climbs on offense.

I'm betting people are solidified in Allen and Rudolph as first round QB by the time the Combine is over.

Are we thinking the same for Jackson?

I almost put Lamar Jackson on my list. His athleticism will be on full display this weekend.

Not sure Rudolph is a 1st rounder yet, but Allen is for sure. Jackson hopefully is, so the Steelers can trade back.

SBI is definitely 5-6 "first round" QBs. Not only to open up trade back scenarios, but to push down some impact defensive players, maybe regardless of position of need.

For instance, I'm not entirely opposed to the idea of Vita Vea (pipe dream, most likely) or Tim Settle (may be out of reach post-Combine. Almost put him on my list) in the 1st. Anybody who can make an impact early is my guy.

I wish too, but not gonna happen. The Steelers want that 5th year option that accompanies first rounders. It's how they operate. I guess they could trade back 1-4 spots and still stay in the first round, but the opportunity is really slim. Pats - for one - will be trading back when they hit the clock.

I keep seeing these names popping up, but fail to see how that is 1st round position of need for the Steelers. Come to grips with the fact that DT/NT is a part time position in the current defense...and no, they aren’t going to a 4-3. I won’t go into the prospects of each player...Vea, I like...Settles not so much, but with huge issues at safety, ILB, and OLB, drafting a 25 snap per game player in the first round isn’t a luxury the Steelers can afford...my two cents.
