i know this questions has probably been asked a hundred times in the last week but since porter and haynes were released, jeff hartings retired,and the fact that our offense and pass coverage was horrifying last season, where should be go in the draft?

if i was the GM, this would be how i would do it:

1st-corner/O-tackle(our tackles are fat and slow and allow guys around the outside)

2nd-linebacker/corner

3rd-center

4th-quarterback(jordan palmer from UTEP, carsons bro.)

5th-RB from Colorado(weighs like 260)

6th-D-line

7th-safety

We have to go linebacker in the first round. the draft is pretty weak at cornerback this year and we dont want to pay a ton of money for a first round pick who doesnt deserve it. the defensive line and linebackers are really deep, then i think second round could be offensive line, 3rd will be defensive back maybe. who knows

I think that LB or DE is a must in the 1st round but it wouldnt
suprise me if we tab a DB if there is a top tier one left
at 15. Just a gut feeling, but dont be suprised
if we trade down from 15th..

Leon hall would be good in the 1st round.

Well, with Polamalu, Carter, and Anthony we are set for now at safety. We definately need to draft a either an LB, CB, or OL in the early rounds.

I would have to lean toward getting us a LB, Paul PSU would be a Pittsburgh native with a lot to prove. Can you say "URLACHER CLONE" Let's trade down a little bit and get another 2nd or 3rd rounder.

i would love to get paul as well... but if some reason we don't get him i think about laron landry from lsu and make him into a corner

drafting a DB in the first round would be a huge waste, it is not a need, ike will bounce back and mcfadden will be a stud. no point in wasting a high draft pick on a class that isn't even that good

our true needs in the first round is a DE/OLB player, jarvis moss would be good, anthony spencer would be good, timmons would be good

WHile you may be right about the class not being that good, your wrong in that we don't have a need. We were horrible last year against the pass. That was our CB's.

Your right on LB. We need to get one...

So I say again... for the hundredth time. Pick up a LB/CB in the first round, and the other of the two in FA. Then, Michael Bush in the second, especially since we now let Haynes go.

no it wasn't, it was the huge lack of a pass rush that hurt or corners all year, they were fine a year ago when we had a good pass rush, and then this year, our pass rush is nowhere to be seen and our corners can only do so much

so with a young fast pass rushing OLB that would fix our problems.

we could use depth at corner, but it's not needed within the first 2 rounds

i'd love to have bush in the second round but with the resigning of dookie i don't see us going running back until the 3rd

I think at this point only the coaching staff has an idea where we stand in the defensive backfield. We are definetly set at safety, and IMO we are pretty much set at DB with Ike, B-Mac, Townsend and Coke. If the staff believes there is a shut down CB in the draft and it is a need then maybe that's our pick at 15. I don't think so, I agree with A S27, CB will be addressed later in the draft.

IMO we will draft DE/OLB at 15 and another LB at 47 or vise versa, but I strongly believe we will draft two defensive players first. I think the staff already knows who their pick is at 15 and plan on him being there ie. A. Spencer, J. Moss. or Posluszny

I think they will go in the other direction at 47. If they take the DE/OLB at 15, they will take a traditional LB at 47 ie. R. Alexander, E. Everett, S. Bradley or L. Woodley the other way.

O-line can be had in the 3rd or if T. Hunt RB or B. Leonard RB/FB are available would be hard to pass up.

Outside of the obvious help we need at LB on defense, we need depth at OL, CB, and it would be nice to land a BIG RB or WR.
