It's clearing the picture up quite a bit. DEFINITELY DL, interior OL and CB. To a lesser extent, WR/KR and OT.

Seems that way. Loadholt is the only OT so far.

I guess maybe Capizzi and Hills are showing the coaches something.

Wow Vontae Davis, wonder how the interview went because I heard he has some charcater issues. Wonder if they think he'll slip that far or think that's a possibility. Also Max Unger Mr. Everything, I would like to have him

Davis has muddied the picture for me. Might we be looking to move up, or do they really think he may free fall to the bottom of the 1st round.

Yes, I think he was in a couple of weeks ago, wasn't he.

I would be surprised if Davis fell to us, but maybe the FO knows something I don't.

I really don't want the brother of Vernon...

But if the FO and staff think he can be a Steeler, then I guess I'll accept it.

What if someone offers the Steelers a trade? They need to be prepared for that contingency...even if they aren't PLANNING on moving up, they can't be caught napping if it happens.

They need to look at mid-1st round talent as well, not only because they could fall, but because of the possibility of a trade...

He has a an attitude that makes Vernon look like a boyscout...I think I'll take a pass.

would love to see vasquez in round 5 or 6

would not want to see davis, i heard that he is a player that is all about himself and has very low chemistry in the locker room

that is true....but Davis does have some talent....i think there is a chance they might take him...but idk about Tomlin....because when Cowher was there they took Plaxico Burress....he wasn't very good at staying out of trouble...lol....look where it got him!.....but the Steelers still took him in the first....so idk....IMO i say if i had a chance between CB vontae davis and sean smith( i don't really consider Al.Smith he's too short although he can play)....i would probably take sean smith...i haven't heard any bad rap on him....so i would take a guy that would focus on improving his team and himself as a player.....rather than a guy that could be a "cancer" to the team!!!!
