On the Clock: Steelers’ Fifth-Round Projection

Needs at This Spot: Best-player available could be RB, OL, WR, TE, NT, LB, S,

Most Likely Possibilities (With 157 off the Board and Steelers Picking at No. 162): TE Virgil Green, Nevada; ILB Quan Sturdivant, North Carolina; RB Jordan Todman, UCONN; OLB Chris Carter, Fresno State; OL Lee Ziemba, Auburn; OG Zach Hurd, UCONN; NT Ian Williams, Notre Dame; WR Dwayne Harris, East Carolina; WR Darvin Adams, Auburn; NT Jerrell Powe, Ole Miss; OLB Bruce Miller, UCF; S Deunta Williams, North Carolina; TE Weslye Saunders, South Carolina

The Pick Should Be: 1. Green, 2. Sturdivant, 3. Ziemba, 4. Williams, 5. Miller (lots of other good options as well.)

The Pick Should Not Be:
ILB Greg Jones, Michigan State; S Tyler, Sash, Iowa; Or a reach for a wide receiver, since so many have gone off the board and any taken at this spot would have trouble making the roster this fall.

The Pick Will Be: TE Virgil Green (a huge steal at this point)

    Ha. We have 3 of the 4 same names and for the 4th we both put down a nose tackle.
    I think Sturdivant is a really good value at this point, so I’d take him first. I originally had Power second, but you picking Green has caused me to reconsider. It’s a more proximate need and I think they’re close in terms of talent.
    Sturdivant
    Green
    Powe or WIlliams
    Ziemba
