Post combine mock:

5.28 Ian Thomas, TE, Indiana
7.02 Quadree Henderson, WR/KR/PR, Pittsburgh
7.28 Deadrin Senat, NT, South Florida

Nice little mock. Ian Thomas might just go earlier than the 5th Round though. Guy is a very physical blocker, I could see him going in Round 3 or 4 if a team really likes him. He's a Baltimore native and the Ravens may need a TE, I could see them having an interest in him as well.

Could very well be the case. Maybe the Ravens will pick up a TE earlier (2nd round or so). I remember when a couple of years ago they traded up in the second round in front of us to snatch Maxx Williams away. That didn't turn out very well for them Unfortunately neither for us as we got Senquez Golson

yes you do had a couple of beers checking middle round picks and over looked your post.  some times I think I need a breathalyzer hooked up to my computer.

like your pick and the players you picked could fall the Steelers.

I know I said my last mock is final, but I'm going to say my WR pick in the 7th Round is a toss up between Trey Quinn, and Daurice Fountain. Fountain was impressive at the University of Northern Iowa Pro Day. His vertical jump would've been the best among WRs at the NFL combine had he been invited. He's got 4.46 Speed, and good height at 6'1". He was a bit of a one year wonder at UNI, but I think with some NFL coaching he could be a dark horse, late round pick. He will definitely be a project at the NFL level, but what better tutor than Antonio Brown who was himself, a late round draft pick.

I will say this though, both Quinn and Fountain could go earlier in the draft. I'm hoping one of them is available late.

Youtube highlights for reference:

My final mock:

1.28 Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama

Not the player I really want, but I think Vander Esch will be gone. This week the Titans cancelled a visit with him because they believe LVE won't be on the board when it's their turn. And they pick at 25. The Steelers met with Evans at his pro day and he might slip to us because a groin injury bothered him last season and probably wasn't fully healed at the combine.

2.28 Jessie Bates, FS, Wake Forest

It's no secret that the Steelers have shown a lot of interest, Tomlin and Colbert had dinner with him at his pro day which is usually a good sign. In a lot of rankings he's project as a 2nd-4th round pick, with the end of the 3rd as the most common spot for him to go. Steelers don't take any risk and get their first real ball-hawking free safety since the 90's. He should produce a lot of turnovers.

3.28 Richie James, WR, Middle Tennessee State

This pick will shock many people, especially drafting him this high, but the kid had a great pro day and the Steelers brought him in for a pre-draft visit. He's expected to go in the 5th, but since we don't have a 4th round pick we use a 3rd-round to get him. I think James Washington, Dante Pettis and Equanimeous St Brown (one of my favourite players this draft, I expect him to be a steal and I wouldn't mind if the Steelers would take him in round 2) will be off the board by then. James intrigued a lot of teams so he will be gone sooner than the draft experts think. James would be a great replacement for Eli Rogers this year and they need another receiver to replace Bryant in 2019.

5.11 Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin

Steelers met with him at the combine. He's a solid catcher and an excellent blocker. He works hard and he could improve our TE group. He's missing his left index finger since his birth but that never bothered him on the field.

5.28 Jordan Malaita, OT, Australia

He never played a snap of football in his life, but the end of the 5th round is where teams tend to gamble on players with great physical attributes who they can develop and Malaita fits this discription. See Brian Allen last year. He visited a lot of teams including the Steelers and I believe he will be gone before the 7th round. Munchak gets his toy he can work with.

7.02 Quadree Henderson, WR/KR/PR, Pitssburgh

Steelers get their returner here and they like to draft local players (James Conner, Jesse James) lately. Another pre-draft visit and a major improvement for our special teams. Won't contribute much as a receiver.

7.28 Joshua Frazier, NT, Alabama

A big guy who can help us stop the run. Underrated player because he was the back-up of Da'Ron Payne at Alabama which causes him to slide in this year's draft. If he could have played he probably would have a chance to go in rounds 3-5. Steelers had dinner with him at his pro day and will be more than happy if they can take him here.

Stella that's a good looking mock, I could get behind that!
