We would have to trade up, I would say he's a top 10 pick.

based on need, pretty much only chicago would draft him.

If you are thinking that Inside linebackers dont get drafted high just consider the last 4 drafts.

2009 Draft Round 2 pick 35 James Laurinitis
2008 Draft Round 1 pick 10 Jerod Mayo
2007 Draft Round 1 pick 11 Patrick Willis
2006 Draft Round 1 pick 5 AJ Hawk

Apart from last years draft it seems that teams are willing to invest a high pick on a quality player.

The question is where does Rolando McClain rank as a draft prospect in comparison with these four players?

Any takers????

49ers could pair him with Willis

the cheaters definetly over paid for mayo by 10 spots easy.... i'd put him in patrick willis class , which makes him a bronco T # 11which i have been predicting...:hatsoff: ....with a slightly lesser chance of going to buffalo at # 8
IF by some chance denver passes on him, i doubt parcells will..
but anywho...not much reason discussing him being a steeler...it just ain't gonna happen without a big trade.

I still think could cash in on him...

cheatriots cheated to get Mayo, there should of been a rule that even through trade weren't allowed to get a pick....

I would welcome the opportunity to get Brandon Spikes or Weatherspoon (cant spell name) to the franchise.

I wouldn't mind Brandon Spikes from Florida or Micah Johnson from Kentucky.....because I think we almost have no shot at getting MCLAIN....if we trade up teams would want too much in compensation.....

Would u trade Timmons 15th for Willis. 4 picks to jump to 11 and we wouldn't end up with Woodley in the 2nd.

no thanks. Without Woodley at the moment would be incomprehensible

McClain is a beast. Too bad he'll be long gone by the time we pick.

Ro would be a great fit in Pittsburgh and has the perfect temperament to be a Steeler. I'd love to see the Steelers have a chance to land him.
