2013 NFL Mock Draft: Steelers could take Barkevious Mingo in 1st round

Jamie Squire

A look at some names the Pittsburgh Steelers might be interested in heading into the 2013 NFL Draft. Do you agree with the mock draft?

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be selecting defensive end/outside-linebacker Barkevious Mingo of LSU in the first-round of the 2013 NFL Draft, according to the most recent mock draft on WalterFootball.com.

As of Thursday afternoon, the Steelers are currently slated to select with the No. 17 overall position in the first round of next year's draft. Of course, this is subject to change dependent upon how the team finishes the regular season. If they manage to qualify for the postseason, their draft order will be determined based upon when they are eliminated.

In terms of selecting Mingo, WalterFootball.com states that 35-year-old linebacker James Harrison might not return to the team in 2013 as he is owed $6.6 million and has started to have injury problems. If this is the case, the team may look to add Mingo, who is a linebacker capable of joining the rush.

In the second and third round of the mock draft, the Steelers are also projected to take safety Eric Reed out of LSU with the No. 47 overall pick and wide receiver Ryan Swope out of Texas A&M with the No. 79 overall pick.
