Steelers Today has hooked up with 31 other NFL bloggers from around the country to do a bloggers’ mock draft. All 32 NFL teams are represented in the mock draft.
The mock draft will go in the exact order of the real draft. Each blog will select for their respective city. Steelers Today will have the 32nd pick in the mock draft, just like the Steelers will in the real draft.
The bloggers’ draft is only scheduled for two rounds. We will not be going a full 7 rounds like the real NFL draft. The draft order and the drafting blogs are as follows:

The draft kicks off today at 12:00 noon. The Detroit Lions blog, “The Wayne Fontes Experience“, is on the clock.
Unlike the real draft, each blogger will have up to 24 hours to make their selection. So if each blogger takes their full time allotment, I won’t be selecting until after an NCAA basketball champion has already been crowned.
In the interim, I will be posting several articles about the upcoming draft. I will first outline the Steelers’ needs, and then I will do profiles of some of the players that I have my eyes on.
I encourage readers to write in and let me know your thoughts on the Steelers’ needs. Also, if you have a suggestion on who I should target in rounds 1 & 2, please let me know. I’ll tell you in advance that I tend to be a “best player available” guy. I won’t waste my 1st round pick on the 8th best offensive tackle just because the Steelers can use a tackle. I’d rather get the BEST center in the draft, or the 2nd best safety. But that’s just me.
If you want to follow the draft in its entirety, it is being hosted by Cleveland Browns blog, No Logo Needed. I will also be doing updates on each team’s picks here on Steelers Today.
