2011 NFL Mock Draft: The Pittsburgh Steelers Select...

The 2011 Arrowhead Pride Mock Draft continues with scottchiefs choosing for the Pittsburgh Steelers at No. 31...

The 2010 Pittsburgh Steelers found themselves in yet another Super Bowl, coming up a bit short to the Green Bay Packers. There is talent all over the field, so they usually can sit back in the draft and catch a good player that is falling.

Coming into this draft the pipedream was Mike Pouncey, being drafted to play alongside his Pro-Bowl brother Maurkice, that wasn't realistic. Then the unexplicable fall off DE J.J. Watt (a top 15 talent IMO) ended just one pick prior to us.

The following are the "needs" of the Steelers (and since things as a brain transplant and castration of QB Ben Roethlisberger aren't attainable in the draft they have been omitted):

OL :

OT & OG are needs as Max Starks, Willie Colon, and Flozell are all coming off injury or UFA.

RB:

Could use a speed back to compliment Rashard Mendenhall.

QB:

Could use a young developmental guy behind Ben, but not a priority.

 

DL:

Productive but Smith, Keisel, and Hampton are getting up in age and could use young depth

CB:

Ike Taylor could be a free agent, and Bryant McFadden and William Gay don't cut it.

PITTSBURGH SELECTS:

Danny Watkins, OG Baylor

6'3" 310 lbs

When you see an offensive lineman that is described as strong, plays with a nasty streak, agile, and plays with good technique, that sounds like a Pittsburgh Steeler. Watkins can move inside to guard in the pros and play right away beside Pouncey for years to come. His age at 26 will be a negative for some teams, but he'll be a perfect fit for a team that has an immediate need, and is wanting to win now, like the Steelers. He was the top rated player left on my board, and fits a major area of need.
