NFL Mock Draft 4.0

My 4th NFL Mock Draft will be based on team needs. For example, I think the Chiefs will go after Geno Smith, that doesn't mean they won't trade down and select him a few spots lower. I don't think Geno Smith deserves to be picked in the Top 5 but, for the sake of this Mock, I will try to dumb it down.

I will also give you free agent options (and possible trade options) that are out there right now that could sway your teams pick. Free agent Wide Receivers like Greg Jennings, Wes Welker and Mike Wallace may be a better option for teams who don't want to risk their first round pick on a Justin Hunter or Cordarrelle Patterson. I'm not saying it's going to be the cheaper path, but you better believe teams will be weighing their options.

The Steelers already have 3 NT's behind Hampton and Hood could also move there, so stop mocking the Steelers NT's please ! We (Steelers) are going to draft a WR/S/LB/CB in round #1

Hampton is a free agent and they are expected to let him walk. I watched Hood play in college, he is not elite.

Steelers would move down to pick up a 2nd or 3rd rounder. Then select Safety,ilb,Wr,cb or Te. in this scenario They'd draft Tavon Austin.

If they move down I like them selecting a WR. I think Austin could be available in the early part of the 2nd round.
