replacement Yes Joe Haden Jersey , it's time for the first mock draft of the season. Is it early? Absolutely it is, but that doesn't mean we can't start mocking a bit as we get a definition of how college players are playing and what the Steelers need in general. Thus, it is time to delve into one of my top-10 prospects of the early season. For the one- round mock I have here, we will assume the Steelers have the 13th pick, as per the rankings currently. It's unlikely this will be the same after the season ends, but regardless it's the best we can do currently.Now, as we've seen during the first four weeks of the season, this pick has to be on defense. Yes, I know, another first-rounder spent on a defender. Unless Ben Roethlisberger retires, there's no chance I'm spending a first-round pick on an offensive player, especially not a running back. I would rather address RB through free agency with a guy like Tevin Colemen or, since it's now reported the Transition Tag is going on Le’Veon Bell, he might just be back with the team on a long-term deal. This leaves me with three options: Cornerback, Inside Linebacker, or EDGE. I can make a good argument for any of these three, but I have a certain sense the team really wants to shore-up the middle of the defense. I have the young, promising Matthew Thomas, and the overachieving Jon Bostic, but I'd like one of them to be a backup along with Vince Williams. Creating a four-headed attack at ILB in which I can rotate the guys I want on the field at will is something I'm all for. Thus, I'm going for that key game-changer at ILB. Steelers fans, meet Mack Wilson.Round 1: Mack Wilson. ILB, AlabamaJust to let you guys know, at the beginning of last year. WIlson ran a 4.59 40 and he looks even faster than that on tape. The 6’0’, 230lb (there is no way he is 230 lbs) linebacker is an absolute unit on the field. I introduce you to one of those rare athletic ILB types that can change a defense. If you want an introduction to him, watch him fly off the edge and absolutely blow up this running play. He's an absolute freight train off the edge when he's unblocked like this. If you thought Bud Dupree could fly off the edge when he was unblocked, Mack Wilson puts that to shame. His athleticism isn't just limited to speed, but acceleration and agility too. He's elite in both areas, and you can see that all over his tape. Just take a look at this interception, great acceleration forward and then one of the most athletic interceptions you'll see as he lays out for the catch. You have to give props to Quinnen Williams with a great chop and then the strong rip through right after. Williams himself is a great defensive lineman, and is a strict product of now-Steelers DL coach Karl Dunbar. However, you can see Wilson has extra tight coverage here and he's actually further behind the receiver to the ball, so Wilson has to come forward with burst and make this play. That's just an incredible athletic play. However James Washington Jersey , my favorite thing about Mack Wilson on that play might be the mental aspect. To make that play requires two key things. One, you have to be able to read the QB and react quickly. Two, it takes top awareness of coverage on your man to make this play. Wilson makes that play possible through mental awareness chiefly. If you want to see the range and reaction this guy has in coverage, look no further than this play. Every time I watch this play I get more and more Ryan Shazier vibes. He's increasingly aggressive with his athleticism and is shot out of a cannon on plays like this. His mental processing needs work on things like play-action but it has improved. Wilson has plays like this all over his film. Once he sees a play, he goes and attacks it and he attacks it aggressively. The hit and reaction once it's released are imperative to making this play. His athleticism helps a ton too, but the mental awareness in coverage is a huge reason why this works. That's something the Steelers seemingly lack at ILB too. The mental aspect in coverage seems to escape them, so this would be a huge add. The way Mack Wilson plays reminds me a little too much of Ryan Shazier. His awareness in coverage, the way he aggressively comes off of the edge, and his run-defense too. Wilson is a great run-defender, and is especially good in fighting off blockers at the second level due to active hands. He just tackled Sony Michel and Nick Chubb with ease too, so that should let you know how sure of a tackler this guy is. But notice how aware he is of the ball carrier and then how he fights straight off of these blocks to make the tackles. This is how you beat a stack block and fill in the line when your DL doesn't get the penetration you want them to get. The Steelers have this somewhat in Jon Bostic, but it never hurts to have two of them. When you have two of those ILBs, your run-defense improves exponentially. Even Wilson’s cons mirror Shazier’s when he was coming out. He takes bad angles but they are made up for by his athleticism, and he overpursues into the backfield at times too. Yes, it would be a retread of a young Ryan Shazier, but Mack Wilson is just what this defense needs. You wanna improve this defense? Mack Wilson is the ticket to doing it. As the 2019 NFL draft unfolds, the Steelers’ depth by position will become much more clear."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Latest NewsSteelers Film Room2018 NFL Draft AnalysisLatest NewsLatest NewsAn updated look at the Steelers depth chart heading into the 2019 NFL DraftNew,8commentsAs the 2019 NFL draft unfolds, the Steelers’ depth by position will become much more clear. EDTShareTweetShareShareAn updated look at the Steelers depth chart heading into the 2019 NFL DraftPhilip G. Pavely-USA TODAY SportsThe Pittsburgh Steelers 2019 roster should take full shape by the end of the weekend. With the Steelers receiving an international exemption, 91 players can be carried into training camp. With Ryan Shazier not yet on the PUP list, the Steelers have 16 spots available going into 2019 NFL draft. Here is a breakdown of the Steelers roster by position with the number of players kept (in parentheses) on their initial 53-man roster in 2018.OffenseQuarterback (3): Ben Roethlisberger, Joshua Dobbs, Mason Rudolph, Brogan RobackAnalysis: This position group is not likely change through training camp, and keeping three for the regular season has been the Steelers standard.Running Back (3): James Conner, Jaylen Samuels, Trey Edmunds, Ralph Webb, Malik Williams Analysis: It would be no surprise if the Steelers added another player to this position group either via the draft or unrestricted free agent (UFA).Fullback (1): Roosevelt NixAnalysis: This position group should hold steady at one throughout the off-season and into the regular season.Wide Receiver (7): JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, Donte Moncrief, Eli Rogers, Ryan Switzer Stephon Tuitt Jersey , Trey Griffey, Ka’Raun White, Tevin Jones, Diontae SpencerAnalysis: The Steelers carried an extra wide receiver most of last season, but may not have the luxury in 2019. Regardless, they will still add one or two players in either the draft or as an UFA.Tight End (3): Vance McDonald, Xavier Grimble, Kevin Rader, Christian Scotland-Williamson**Analysis: Depending on how much the Steelers are happy with Grimble will determine how high they have to prioritize adding one or more tight ends.Offensive Line (9): Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro, Ramon Foster, Alejandro Villanueva, Matt Feiler, Chukwuma Okafor, Jerald Hawkins, B.J. Finney, Zach Banner, R.J. Prince, Patrick Morris, J.C. HassenauerAnalysis: The Steelers are quite deep on the offensive line, but this does not mean they won’t add more players if they feel the right ones are available during or after the draft. If not, they already have at least nine quality players who could make the roster.DefenseDefensive Line (6) : Cameron Heyward, Stephon Tuitt, Javon Hargrave, Tyson Alualu, Daniel McCullers, Lavon Hooks, Conor Sheehy, Winston Craig, Casey SaylesAnalysis: The Steelers are in a position to either keep the same group going into training camp, or attempt to upgrade their depth with the right player.Outside Linebacker (3): T.J. Watt, Bud Dupree, Anthony Chickillo Jesse James Jersey , Ola Adeniyi, Keion Adams, J.T. JonesAnalysis: I still can’t believe the Steelers made it most of the 2018 season with only three outside linebackers. This is a position the Steelers could draft at any point, as well as adding UFA’s.Inside Linebacker (5): Vince Williams, Mark Barron, Jon Bostic, Tyler Matakevich, Robert Spillane, Tegray Scales, Ryan Shazier^Analysis: I may be in the minority, but I find Mark Barron not being assigned a number an indication his position could fluctuate based on the Steelers draft. Regardless, there will be additions made to this group. Cornerback (5): Joe Haden, Steven Nelson, Mike Hilton*, Artie Burns, Cameron Sutton, Brian Allen, Herb Waters, Marcelis Branch, Kam Kelly^^, Jack TochoAnalysis: The bottom few names on this list could possibly play safety. The room is crowded, and it will most likely gain a couple more by the end of the weekend. The Steelers need to increase their quality, not just quantity. Safety (5): Sean Davis, Terrell Edmunds, Jordan Dangerfield, Marcus AllenAnalysis: When there aren’t as many players on the depth chart as what the Steelers kept in 2018, it’s obvious this position will be addressed at some point. SpecialistsPlacekicker (1): Chris Boswell, Matt McCranePunter (1): Jordan BerryLong Snapper (1): Kameron CanadayAnalysis: Don’t be surprised if the Steelers add another specialist or two, hopefully as UFA’s.*Yet to sign tender**Roster exemption through international program^Expected to be placed on PUP^^Listed as a defensive backOffense: 35Defense: 36Specialists: 4Total: 75
