NFL Draft, Day 1

Mesmerized by the Bucs' 11-10 start, we haven't thought much of late about football. But of course we're acutely aware that, later today, the names of young men will be read aloud in succession. A select handful of these men will be given the chance to compete for the right to wear a new throwback mustard helmet.

The Steelers needs are many (e.g. OLB/OL/DE/RB/CB/WR/ILB/P). As one would expect given the vagaries of the draft, predictions rarely agree:

Ryan of HSS predicts G Ben Grubbs. Ryan also likes punter Dan Sepulveda.

PFW predicts LB Lawrence Timmons.

Ed Bouchette predicts the Steelers trade down with JAX from 15 to 17, trading CB Darrelle Revis for DE Jamaal Anderson and an extra third round pick.

For live draft coverage, the P-G's Jerry Micco will be updating the P-G's Blog 'N' Gold.
