Here is an alternate pick for each round in case the Steelers don't get their primary target:
1st Round: Mike Pouncey, G/C, Florida
If there are no corners available, the Steelers could opt for an offensive linemen. Taking Maurkice's twin brother would be an excellent way for the team to improve their linemen.
2nd Round: Curtis Brown, CB, Texas
Brown is Aaron Williams' opposite number and is an excellent corner in his own right. He's been improving his draft stock and could go in the second or third round. He's not the play-making corner that Williams is, but he would be a very solid pickup.
3rd Round: Ian Williams, DT, Notre Dame
Williams is a little undersized and may be a better defensive end in the NFL, but he's likely to be an impact lineman at the professional level. He'd be a solid mid-round pick and could sit behind Hampton and learn for a couple seasons.
4th Round: Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia
Like Locke, Devine is a home run-threat running back who can easily score whenever he gets the ball. He's got a better injury history and could go higher that this, but he'd be a solid change-of-pace back for the Steelers' system.
5th Round: Greg Lloyd, ILB, Connecticut
The Steelers thrived with Lloyd's father (also Greg) disrupting the middle. The younger Lloyd is a player in the same disruptive, aggressive mold. He could sit and learn and then compete to replace James Farrior when the time comes.
6th Round: Willie Smith, OT, East Carolina
Smith is a good project lineman and could eventually develop into a disruptive NFL tackle. He needs some work and coaching, but could be just what the doctor ordered for Pittsburgh. They need more than one lineman this year.
7th Round: Josh Jasper, K, LSU
Jasper is the number two-rated kicker in the draft. If Alex Henery is gone and the Steelers are focused on taking an impact player, they may opt for Jasper, another accurate, strong kicker.
