what do you guys think about the steelers getting PT in the later rounds? I think he would be the perfect slash player that the steelers are looking for. QB/WR... good speed, 6'4, and can throw the ball!

No Way! We need many other players before another slash and burn! Like the height though...

He is a converted WR so that makes him a very versatile pick. I'd make him a WR for sure if I picked him, then you have instant play calling flexibility.

Not sure how replacing a #2 or 3 receiver for a #2 or 3 receiver with help our rushing attack against Baltimore and Jacksonville (21 and 26 yds respectively). I keep hearing about the desire for a tall receiver but that I just don't get.

Hines is fairly successful at a towering 6'0". Walter Young still hasn't been proven yet either. Besides. We had a guy at 6'5" in Burress. Uh. That worked.

Once past the third round we should be mining for LB's. The Steelers are littered with successful 4th round LB's.

If we can get him in the sixth or seventh round, then sounds good!

I like the guy, but i agree sixth or seventh round if he gets there, any lower would be a waste.

I wouldnt mind getting him in the 5th or 6th round he would be a good adition to the team.
