I've sent a PM now too so should have it one way or another.

Middle of the round rather than early, but I'll most likely be looking to trade back from #46 for a pick or two.

Will consider closer to the time but if my man is still there I may be interested.

As much as I think Jon Ross is gonna be very good, there's a player I want who I am very happy GB didn't go for (who I definitely thought they would!)

Ross and Davis before Williams? Interesting....

I love Williams, I'm a Tigers fan, but think Ross just offers that something special. It was close between the two. Hope you don't take the guy I want to trade for in 2nd round.

Williams is a different beast to Ross - so when you are picking between the two, it's just a case of which flavour.

I would say with Ross that the medical is a question. Microfracture surgery doesn't have the reputation of being a long-term fix. Chris Wood who is a fast bowler for Hampshire had that surgery and now can't cope with 4 day cricket. Stephen Bowen only lasted 2 years after microfracture surgery before his knee died on him (although he was older). Obviously Ross is not having a problem now - you don't run 4.2 with a bad knee - but in 3-4 years I don't know... Durability all-around is more of a concern - but then Williams had the major neck injury, so don't know if he's clean either...

But, yeah, it's fascinating that Mike Williams is still on the board - clearly there's not a love for him!

Well I won't take him if you trade with me...

I have some similar concerns to DueSouth in regards to Ross's medical condition - to me he seems a little brittle, and running that 4.22 and pulling his hamstring didn't do anything to assure me...

Williams is my #WR1 - so I am shocked he is still on the board!

I'm glad you're all shocked! Steelers are never afraid to take a sliding playmaker!

After AB our receiving depth chart isn't great. Bryant probably won't be re-signed after this year (even if he keeps his nose clean), Coates has struggled and DHB & Hunter are both expendable.
Also last 2 postseason games Ben only threw 1 td and we struggled in the red zone so we desperately need help on the O.

Falcons are on the clock (pm'd)

Thought the Steelers might do that! With Martavis Bryant's future in doubt, and a generally so-so WR corps other than Antonio Brown, Williams would be heavily involved in their Offense from day one...

Just another subtle reminder that I'm open to trading down in the second round, as far as #49...
