There was a time we did multiple rounds, but it has been trimmed down to just the first round. Each editor, or someone designated to represent their website, makes the pick for their team, and in the 2019 mock draft I chose CB Byron Murphy for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In case you were wondering, many, if not all, of the headline names floating around the black-and-gold fan base were off the board before my selection. I chose to go cornerback over wide receiver, and I like Murphy over Greedy Williams and Deandre Baker.Check out what I wrote about the pick Mike Hilton Jersey , and the analysis from SB Nation below:20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Byron Murphy, CB, WashingtonHartman: The Pittsburgh Steelers make this selection looking at the future. While the fan base will bemoan the selection, Murphy will be a player who can play sparingly in Year 1, before taking over for the aging Joe Haden. Murphy is young, and declared for the draft after a stellar sophomore season saw him total 58 tackles, 13 pass defenses, four interceptions, and a touchdown.Murphy will bring versatility in being able to play both man and zone schemes, and could be a valuable commodity in some shape or form as a rookie. The Steelers know their secondary needs to improve to match their pass rush — which was tied for the most sacks in the NFL last season — and the pick of Murphy is a big step in the right direction.Analysis: It took all of 20 games of college football for Murphy to decide he was ready for the NFL. He made the right decision. Murphy may not be a press specialist, but that is one of his few flaws. He can help the reshaping of Pittsburgh’s secondary that started this offseason with the signing of free agent Steven Nelson. A combination of Nelson and Murphy would give Pittsburgh a viable partnership on the outside for several seasons. That’s good considering former first-round pick Artie Burns has been a letdown and Haden has just a season left on his deal.The best part about this mock draft is we did something unique this year. We decided to create a podcast with all of the bloggers stating their pick, and why. It is a really unique feature, and one I encourage everyone to check out!To hear the full mock draft in audio form Joe Haden Jersey , check out the podcast below to see who was left, who was gone, who surprised and who disappointed: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown isn’t a free agent. But he’s acting like he is one, and the Steelers are letting him.Regardless of anything the Steelers have said — things they have to say in order to maximum Brown’s trade price — they seem to be committed to trading Brown. They could play hardball with Brown, and some would say they play hardball with Brown. But they haven’t, and they don’t seem to be prepared to do so.Instead, they seem to be prepared to trade him before a $2.5 million roster bonus becomes due on March 17. And they seem to be prepared to trade him only to a team for which he wants to play.In other words, they’ve given Brown a no-trade clause, empowering him to block a deal by expressing his lack of interest in playing for a team that otherwise wants him to play for it.Brown has essentially taken on the system, and he’s essentially winning. If the Steelers wanted to keep him, they could tell him that he’ll play for them or for no one. If he chooses to play for no one, he’d owe the Steelers $3.8 million in unearned income for 2019, $3.8 in unearned income for 2020 Vance McDonald Jersey , and $3.8 million in unearned income for 2021. That’s a grand total of $11.4 million in signing bonus money he received in 2017.The Steelers also have the power to aggressively discipline Brown for conduct detrimental to the team if he shows up but continues to be disruptive, and to attack the $11.4 million in signing bonus money and the $2.5 million in 2019 roster bonus money if he fails or refuses to show up for work.The team that trades for Brown also has leverage; if Brown doesn’t show up, the team will have the ability to recover the $11.4 million that the Steelers paid. (The Buccaneers once did that after trading for Jake Plummer, who retired in lieu of playing in Tampa.)Despite the immense power that management holds in this case, teams are tiptoeing around Mr. Big Chest, granting his request for a trade and letting him block a trade to a team for which he doesn’t want to play.Although the Steelers continue to seem determined to trade Brown, they still have the ability to draw a line in the sand. The fact that they haven’t done so yet suggests that they won’t. And the fact that no team seems to be willing to trade for Brown if he’s not willing to play for that team suggests that Brown, not the Steelers or anyone else, ultimately controls his next destination.
