With the 17th Pick the Steelers select.....




After a disappointing 8-8 season the Steelers hold the 17th pic in this years draft to be held later today. With so many positions of need it is hard to predict what the Steelers do. The most common names have been Georgia LB Jarvis Jones, Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert, and Texas S Kenny Vaccaro.  Jones seems to be the most common choice from the so called experts. The Steelers could take West Virginia WR Tavon Austin or Utah DT Star Lotulelei if they fall but that is unlikely. So my prediction.... Tyler Eifert. Heath Miller will not be ready to start the season and may not be ready all year. Most NFL teams are going to two TE sets and Eifert can also line up at receiver. It is harder to find a top tier TE than a WR. For the record i would love for Austin to fall to the Steelers.
