Pittsburgh Steelers seven-round 2014 Mock Draft


A number of teams around the league are beginning to look ahead at the 2014 NFL Draft. Leading up to this year’s draft, we will be releasing team specific seven-round mocks, so that we can get an idea of what needs each team will need to fill and what targets each team should keep an eye on.

As we kick off the team-by-team mock drafts, we start off with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Here is a look at how a seven-round mock draft could play out for the Steelers:

NOTE: The mock draft does not include projected compensatory selections. 

Round 1: Louis Nix III, nose tackle, Notre Dame | Height: 6-foot-3, Weight: 340 pounds

Round 2: Morgan Moses, offensive tackle, Virginia | Height: 6-foot-6, Weight: 325

Round 4: Pierre Desir, cornerback, Lindenwood | Height: 6-foot-1, Weight: 195 pounds

    If the Steelers already have two right tackles (Adams & Gilbert) on their roster, what would be the benefit of taking another one in the form of Moses over a position of greater need like tight end which is absent from this mock? I only ask because I am curious as to why you think Moses would be a good fit. Do you see him as a left tackle?

    I will say that I will be stoked if they take Desir or Jean-Baptiste late on day two or early on day three. Also like the Barrett pick as well. His linebackers coach at CSU is actually Joey Porter, and Carter and Sylvester definitely need to be pushed next fall.

      I would have to agree. IF not drafting a sure-fire LT, why bother? They seem to be settled on Beechum at LT whether others agree or not. I would say a sure-fire LT is necessary in round 1 and push everything below down one round, but they don’t seem to have one pegged in this draft. Personally, and I am drinking Wild Turkey 101 as I write this, we have several holes to fill. TAke best available CB round 1. Best available NT/TE round 2. At this point, no 3rd round but there has to be a compensatory there……….right? Best NT/TE in round 3 to cover whatever you missed in round 2. No matter what was done in RD 1,2, Still take Desir RD4. RD 5,6,7 we’re all just guessing even more. They manufactured offense with decent WRs and a TE can be a huge threat to cover for not having that BIG WR, but the defense was dreadful and needs major injections. That being said, if you don’t play the defensive players until year 3…………………… how much does it help RIGHT NOW to draft them high?

  • David DeLuz

    I think this looks right. I would say that a big WR is probably a higher priority than Rd 4. I think there are better options in Rd 2, including Fl State’s Benjamin. He’s young, but he has the body and the speed to be a great wr.

  • alex de la cruz

    This would be a disappointing draft…….
    Please try again!

  • Carl Eagan

    Nix is a wasted pick they don’t need a nose tackle especially one with questionable knees. Another Right Tackle why? Not sure why a tall receiver in the 6th round how could he possible be any better than who we have on the practice squad?

  • Nick Jensen

    Nix is a huge reach at 15 overall. You failed to address the Steelers most glaring defensive need at CB (Desir is not a fix), and with the break out year from Bell I HIGHLY doubt the steelers take a RB. The truth is the Steelers have so much experience at OL they don’t need to take anyone else. Their back up line basically has an entire year of NFL experience. I see them going CB first round, Gilbert or Denard, DT second round in Aaron Dobson, who is not as large as Nix but much more explosive, durable, and a hometown kid. After that Probably sneak in a WR, safety, LB. The depth at safety is actually pretty good this year, so I feel like they will let that pick slide to 5-7 round and hope to get lucky with a Kam Cancelor or R. Sherman type of pick. (They were both 5th rounders).

  • rey perez

  • Milliken Steeler

    Here is mine. It didnt give me a 3rd round pick and i had some unexpected people fall to me so I grabbed them.

    1) CJ Mosely ILB
    2) Justin Gilbert CB
    4) Jimmie Ward S
    5) Bruce Ellington WR
    6) Andre Hal CB
    7) Ladarius Perkins RB

    • donovan

      Justin gilbert would be gone in the first round

      • Milliken Steeler

        Maybe, maybe not, if he is you move on. lol

  • Rick Tilves

    NIX has been reported to be Unmotivated at times and looks like a Fat Slob. I rather have one of the Big WR like Evans or Benjamin.

  • Rick Tilves

    Forgot to say I do Not like This Draft at ALL.

  • chuck williams

    Just get a big, athletic CB in the first round!!! Second round a NT, third round a WR that can block, after that its a weak draft at best.
