I hope we go o-line early and I'm willing to bet Big Ben is hoping the same thing.

As of today the Colbert said the Steelers are open up to drafting any position except QB and TE. I would think we would go with OT Jeff Otah from PITT.

I would like to see Desean Jackson though in the first since this years draft class has tons of talent with lineman. Jackson would provide with ST upgrade and a nice compliment to our WR corps. By the times Ward calls it quits Jackson will be already groomed.

Dylan, I seem to agree with ya bud. I like the thought of having someone here and ready when Hines is ready to move on and I think that time is coming sooner than folks think. Who should they draft at WR? I have no idea, but I will look and read and find out myself brother...

This is a list of WR's that nfldraftscout.com has:
Their top 10 looks like this
DeSean Jackson 6' 172 lbs California
Limas Sweed 6' 5" 219 lbs Texas
Malcolm Kelly 6' 4" 219 lbs Oklahoma
Early Doucet 6' 207 lbs LSU
Devin Thomas 6' 2"218 Michigan St.
Mario Manningham 6' 178 lbs. Michigan
James Hardy 6' 7" 220 Indiana
Adarius Bowman 6' 4" 220 lbs Oklahoma St.
Andre Caldwell 6' 200 lbs Florida
Earl Bennett 6' 1" 202 lbs Vanderbilt
I definitely dont see the Steelers taking a WR in the 1st round though.
This guy could get the Steelers attention if he runs a decent 40 time at the combine. This comes from nfldraftscout.com


Limas Sweed, Texas
Height: 6-4. Weight: 212.
40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round: Top 25 Pick.
I've dropped Sweed a bit because it's quite apparent that his 40 time will really hurt him.

I have a feeling Limas Sweed's stock may slip come Combine time (see 40 time), but the fact remains that he's the top possession receiver in this class. Check out NFL Draft Dog's Scouting Report.

Check out DJ Hall of Alabama 6' 2" 195 I havent got a recent 40 time but he seems to catch everything catchable good return man also.I saw him quite alot in SEC action this fall. Unbiased opinion not a fan of Bama.

Adarius Bowman should drop for being a problem child in college. Kicked out of UNC for dope.... plus he dropped a heck of a lot of passes at the Senior Bowl practices and game.....

definitely not..

heard he couldn't get past even the slowest DB's at the senior bowl and just wasn't physical at all...

im dying for early doucet in the 2nd... basically a hines ward clone...
