, 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

, 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 Cheap

, so Wilson has to come forward with burst and make
this play. That's just an incredible athletic play. However, 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

but Mack Wilson is just what this defense needs. You wanna improve this defense?
Mack Wilson is the ticket to doing it. Since signing a $14.35 million contract
with the Pittsburgh Steelers on March 20, very little has been heard from the
team’s most expensive free agent signing of the offseason. Hampered by a
hamstring injury he suffered during minicamp earlier in the year, Morgan Burnett
seemingly spent more time on the sidelines than he did on the practice field at
training camp and the regular season has not been much kinder to him
either.Despite returning to play in Week 1, Burnett would not make it to Week 3
after picking up a groin injury, and there appears to be very little optimism he
will be returning to the field in the near future. When speaking to reporters on
Wednesday, the former Green Bay Packers safety was leaving team facilities with
plans to continue his rehab when he went back home for the bye week break, as he
told Chris Adamski of TribLive.Burnett has not come close to suiting up on game
day over the past four weeks and has barely been able to participate in
training, even in a limited capacity. This is not the first time the safety has
tried to deal with a groin injury either, a problem that cost him two games in
2017 after also suffering a hamstring injury earlier that year too. A calf
problem sidelined him for five games in 2015 and it is perhaps worth noting that
Burnett has only played a full 16 game schedule twice in his nine year career,
back in 2011 and 2012.In his absence, rookie Terrell Edmunds has been thrust
into a starting role, leaving Burnett to contribute as something of a coach to
his young replacement, as the first round draft pick explained to Adamski.With
no plans on the horizon for surgery according to Adamski, it appears the
Steelers are taking a patient approach with Burnett’s recovery and it seems safe
to assume fans will not be seeing Burnet back in action anytime
soon. Custom Seattle Seahawks
