The draft begins in less than 2 hours...what will happen as 32 teams attempt to make sense out of the crap shoot known as the NFL Draft.

Will our beloved Steelers trade up or down? Will they take an O-Line, D-Line, or something else with the first pick.

Ah, the anticipation! :tt03:

I've got hockey on the DVR - I'm gonna watch the Talladega jr race then that other stuff.

The Draft is not much of a spectator sport. (until the Steelers pick)

Ah, the anticipation! :tt03:

Like I said before Steelman.....Everytime I checked my draft...I kept coming up with Mack...Butler...Laurinaitis...and Harvin as possibly being there for us at #32....

I think Mack may go to the Bills with their second pick in the 1st....Butler may go earlier to the Ravens and is probably not a priority now that we picked up a CB in free agency....and out of Harvin and Laurinaitis, Laurinaitis values out higher. (And the Steelers rarely pass on value)

Part of me wishes we would go OL or DL...but I have to admit the thought of a future LB corps of Woodley/Timmons/Laurinaitis/Harrison sounds devastating.

Steelman16
04-25-2009, 02:02 PM
Out of all the players you mentioned, the only player I don't want is Harvin. I'd be happy with everyone else. Harvin sounds like a Plaxico straight out of the gate.

Eric Wood Louisville
Max Unger Oregon.
The only first round DT grades or Raji, Kerry, and Hood....I would love for Hood to fall...but I think B.J. Raji goes very early...Atlanta grabs Peria Jerry .....and with as deep as the WR class is this year, I look for Indy to wait until the second round for Marvin Harrisons replacement and they grab Hood in the first.

Ziggy Hood would be an awful pick...he can't play in a 3-4...

If he is on our board at all it is because of his flexibility as a WR/RS....but I agree, I dont want him either.

I noticed Mayok had Mack as only the 3rd best center.

I think the argument is that Wood can move through all 3 interior positions.

Sanchez is the best QB in this draft. Period. That was a good pick.

Preacher

That MAY HAVE been a brilliant trade for the Browns, depending on what they get.

if they can trade back up and get Crabtree, or put Edwards out there plus a second or something.....

If they get any picks at all in the first 3 rounds, it's a win for the Browns.

They did this right. They went from having almost no picks to having a whole shitload of picks in this draft (not just from this trade, but all their offseason dealings).

Now it's up to Mangini to draft the right players. I have to admit, so far, the guy is doing this thing right. Scrap the current roster, dump the disgruntled vets, and rebuild through the draft...

Preacher
04-25-2009, 03:49 PM

True... but the problem is... I don't know what hte Browns REALLY need. I don't think THEY really know.

Maybe they have a QB... but they haven't seen enough. Maybe they need a WR, or maybe Quinn and Edwards will connect. maybe maybe maybe.

So do they wait... or do they get aggressive and get a good play on D. Strengthen that unit, and see what happens on O????

lamberts-lost-tooth
04-25-2009, 03:49 PM

Who cares about the tackles being taken? That just means there are some decent center/guards left on the board at 32.

As an intellectual exercise, I will give it a shot...

Bey, with is speed can get downfield MUCH faster, which equals the big arm of the QB.

With a TE last year, they can get a double coverage on a speed guy deep, it opens the TE down low.


Do I believe it? naaaa. But it is one scenario they may have been thinking.

Reason I think we don't go OT is because when all these teams run on tackle early, it scares other teams into reaching. Players they thought would be there for them in Rd 2 could be gone. Steelers aren't going to make that mistake. They won't draft a guy rated as the 50th player at 32 just because they have a need.
