Steelers 2016 Pre-Draft Roster Lock Exercise

With the start of the 2016 NFL Draft now almost one full week away, I thought that today would be the perfect time to conduct our annual pre-draft exercise that centers around the discussion of perceived locks when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 53-man roster.

Below, I have already made my choices as to which players I think should be considered locks to make the Steelers 53-man roster this year ahead of the draft. As you can clearly see, that list includes 37 players. Below my proposed locks is the list of 10 players who I believe are on the roster bubble ahead of the draft.

Now, it is up to you to present arguments against any of my selections included in both lists. Is there a bubble player who should be considered a lock? Are any players who I consider to be locks deserve to be on the bubble? Additionally, feel free to make a case for any of the players who were left out completely as to whether or not they should be on the bubble list.
