They said they would try Essex at Tackle, so I guess Kemoeatu will stay at Gaurd.
Our OL is alot deeper now........

Another suspect character guy to go along with Wallace... looks like Bill wants to get meaner.

this guy is all ameican so hes better than essex and hes huge, u move him at RG, and simmons to RT or start starx are starting lineup for OL

LT: Marvel Smith
LG: Alan Faneca
C: Jeff Hartings
RG: Chris Komeautu
RT: Kendall Simmons or Matt Starks

and even if Komeautu doesnt start, he'll give excellent depth at G, hes good enough to start let alone back up

Pittsburgh Steelers ? Most teams felt Utah OL Chris Kemoeatu was a second to third round talent at guard. Kemoeatu is a powerful in-line run blocker who is a natural fit within the Steelers' offensive philosophy. His anger management issues and poor test score hurt his stock on draft day. Kemoeatu has more potential than Keydrick Vincent, who they lost as a free agent.

This from Brian Delucia Foxsports

Why did we take Essex before this guy?

it scares me that this guy fell so far. he's an all american. That obviously means theres either inconsistency, injury or character problems

Gil Brant the former vice president of player personnel for Dallas Cowboys believes the Steelers executed a masterful caper by plucking the 6-foot-3, 344-pounder with the 204th overall pick last weekend.(Chris Kemoeatu)

"The guy was a steal," said Brandt, a senior analyst for NFL.com. "He has the strongest, biggest legs you've ever seen in your life. He was in my top 100. I don't understand how he fell so far. I thought he'd be a first-day pick. He has bigger legs than some guys' waists. You can't miss this guy. He has everything you want in a lineman."

I like this pick. I am glad he is on our side, and I hope he gets a chance to start. He could be a good, if not great Guard in this league for a long time......

I`m hearing his upperbody is where he lacks strength tho.?? We shall see.

According to many, this guy could be one of the big sleepers in the draft, and the Steelers couldnt believe he fell as far as he did. This could be a HUGE steal for us!

If this ends up being true, then props to our FO, Cowher and company take some heat now and then, but how often our we a shitty team? We bounce back from subpar seasons better than any team out there
