Getting Draft Ready: A Yahoo! Two-Rounder

Like most fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers we are only beginning to come back down to earth. However we came across a Yahoo! Sports two-round mock draft, and decided to share.

In their scenario the Steelers will be choosing William Beatty, an offensive tackle from Connecticut at #32 and Eric Wood an offensive center/guard out of Louisville. To be honest we do not know much (yet) about either player, so Yahoo! may have it exactly correct. However, one issue we do have is that they project Oregon offensive center/guard/tackle Max Unger at #55 (to the New England Patriots).

We are going to be very honest here ~ we saw a lot of Max Unger this past college season, liked what we saw, love his versatility (we think he will be a guard in the NFL), and would like to see the Steelers find a way to get him into the Black & Gold.
