if we don't get smith i hope we target offensive line. I feel that our team can be a champion by either #1 - upgrade the CB position, or #2 - upgrade the line and have a championship offense and a 'good' defense, rather than the other way around. if our line can keep defenders out of ben's face i think our chances of winning another title is good even with a suspect secondary.

I live in Columbus so I get to see Ohio State play all the time, he's a definite beast for sure, although I'm not so sure its what I'd consider one of our needs

that being said he was probably the best pick for us to take at this point in the draft, corners can generally be found in the later rounds and the best O Linemen always go long before the 31st pick

Scouting report on heyward:

Cameron Heyward is a very underrated player in my book, he possesses all the skills needed to be a very effective 5 technique in a 3-4, and possesses the skills at a high level. He has the ideal size, he has great overall strength, and uses his hands very well which makes him great against the run. And also has the explosion, quickness, and once again, violent hand use, to get into the backfield and mess things up. I think people were expecting him to be more of a sack artist, but he just isn't that guy. He reminds me a lot of Richard Seymour, someone who stops the run first, but also is an effective penetrator. Heyward would be best suited in a 3-4 at the 5 Technique, but also could be effective in a 4-3 as a 3 technique where he could use his athleticism to shoot the gap and make plays, though he would have to bulk up a little bit to make that switch. Heyward I think will be a steal somewhere late in round 1.

sexyllama
04-28-2011, 10:45 PM
Or maybe Heyward can cover the TE or SLOT because...

Because Green Bay is still ****ing throwing on us.... but I guess we'll love getting bombed this year and then lose to a Rodgers/Brady/New Orleans...

Because we know they what they will do... line up four and watch the our clowns give up 10 yards a clip.

Yeah, I'm sure CB's 3-10 will not start or do well in the NFL.

GMU Steeler
04-28-2011, 10:45 PM
I would have wanted a corner too but I look at this way, other than Hood, we really didn't have a lot of youth/depth on the D-Line. Heyward will allow us to get more pressure on the QB too. I think they'll pick two of nose tackle, corner, or offensive line tomorrow.

If your mad about it, how about you get your lazy ass up become a scout for the Steelers and fix our problems for us. No? Then deal with it. We still 6 other picks and I really like Davon House and Chimidi Chekwa. Both are really physical.

Still on the board which are good:
Aaron Williams
Brandon Harris
Ras I Dowling
Davon House
Shareece Wright

It starts in the trenches of the d-line. Pressure. Fact of the matter is, the Steelers are VERY old on the defensive line AND are all over 30 even in our depth. This years corner draft is very average, so we could get a value pick at #2 or #3 at the corner position and stride right along.

SH-Rock
04-28-2011, 10:58 PM
It's amazing how you consider yourself a Steeler fan, but lose hope when something doesn't go your way. We have the oldest defense in the league and our D-Line is banged up. Smith can't play a whole season, Kiesel is getting up there in age as well. True they didn't need a DE as a first round pick, but like I said before, the CB that were left are pretty average. And even if we drafted one, he would only play in the 2012-2013 season not this season.

sexyllama
04-28-2011, 11:00 PM
I guess I should be happy that we didn't have to draft any of those garbage QB's. They will all be huge busts... maybe Gabbert has a chance but Locker at #8?

Anyway, all those CB's won't even get a chance. 2 Years ago EVERYONE said we couldn't defend pass... we didn't.

Last year we couldn't defend the PASS and luckily we didn't have to play Brady in playoffs then we got mauled by Rodgers. We also don't have very accurate/clutch QB's in our division.

I guess we'll at least get to see the master DB coach Tomlin work his magic.

Llama

sexyllama
04-28-2011, 11:08 PM
It's amazing how you think a DE will cover the SLOT?

We have Bryan't "10 yards a catch" McFadden as our primary option. He has been hot garbage for 2 years? Add up those Arizona stats... he' s giving out free candy in our backfield.
Ike won't sign... somebody will offer him batshit crazy money.
C. Butler can't even find his helmet.
Who else? Exactly, we have -depth at CB.

Two years running we've been gashed by passing teams and Tomlin sticks his head in the sand. Oh yeah, Ben can bail them out... you can only hit that well so many times.

BTW, instead of calling me names because your so mad or telling me how we are going to kick ass because we are the Steelers.

Please tell me how you think we'll cover 4-Wide? Pressure, yeah that's right, that PRESSURE that Brady and Rodgers felt by DESTROYING us in 2 Q's and then coasting for the next two.

Once again, just show me a logical way we'll actually stop a pass? Didn't think so but we'll beat up Cleveland and Cincy! Sweet!

Like I said before, even if we did draft a corner, the player wouldn't start this year. Also where did you get the impression that "Butler can't find his helmet". The only CB that would start in Dick Lebeau's defense is Patrick Peterson in this draft, unless someone gets injured.

sexyllama
04-28-2011, 11:22 PM
Exactly, my point-

You're not exactly a master debater. You are proving my point!

WE HAVE NO ONE IN THE BACKFIELD.

So, Cam will come in and STOP THE RUN? Nobody runs on us? They just pass because it's the easiest way to stomp us.

Clark can't cover.
Superman can't cover 4 guys
Ike will be gone.
And as you said "No CB" can just step into this vaunted Defense. A vaunted DEFENSE that hasn't stopped the pass in TWO YEARS. Sure we can pile it on Cincy, Clev, and we'll beat BALT / JETS because they don't have an accurate QB.

I'll go back to my original point. We'll still get bombed by the Pats, NO, Green Bay's. We don't adjust AND we have no CB's

So our system is so awesome that no CB can grasp the complexity of giving up 10 yards a pass.

Then you add to it that we don't sign FA's.

I'll go out on a limb, our RUN D will be awesome. Our PASS D will be shit.

We'll get to the Playoffs then get bombed by a passing attack we KNEW they would do but won't adjust and won't draft anything to counter it.

Does that sound familiar?

I'm okay with Heyward, all the good Olinemen were gone and while I would have prefered a CB I see why we may have chosen him, but we NEED to secure a good CB tomorrow. I'm personally hoping we go after Ras-I Dowling, I'd be willing to sacrifice a lot of the rest of our draft to get him. Williams will be off the board to early for us to trade up but with both Williams and Harris left on Day 2, Dowling might slide far enough for us to get him.

No need to reach for a guy you can probably secure in round 2. D-line was a pressing need for us as well. I think they did the right thing here. We'll see how things go in rounds 2 and 3 as far as securing a CB.

I no people make it seem so bad we did not draft a corner they make it sound like we drafted a kicker In the first round lol

Actually, after 2 years of doing nothing in terms of fixing the pass defense, I'm worried.

I'm perfectly fine, just tired of everyone saying "it's fine" and we get bombed year after year. And we are well down the path of being bombed for a 3rd year.

You guys act like we the SB was close... someone tell me what the halftime score was? We haven't covered the pass since the second half of the Arizona SB. Seriously... AND WE SUPPOSEDLY HAVE A DB BACKFIELD GENIUS as a coach.

Yeah, I'm worried.

PS Laugh all you want but I bet my friends we wouldn't adjust and let GB just bomb away. Guess who won that bet?

Uh, the game was close. Last time I checked, the halftime score doesn't really matter. :doh:

Look, nobody's saying we're fine in the defensive backfield. I agree that area needs some serious addressing, but to throw away a first round pick on a guy you could potentially get in the 2nd would be wasteful. Why not try to get a stud in another "need" area, and still get a comparable CB in the second that you could have wasted in the first?

Yeah. Last time I checked a football game is 60 minutes, not 30. We had a chance to win at the end and blew it. Can't win 'em all!

wtf did you want them to do? reach for a CB who could be out of the league in a few years or take a player they fully believe will be a difference maker for years to come? shitty teams panic and reach for needs.. that's why they end up picking top 15 every single year.

guess what? if Ben didn't shit the bed in the first half and Mendenhall didn't fumble the go-ahead score away, we probably would have been Super Bowl champions in spite of our secondary; which according to you is as bad as they come. Warner torched us in SB XLIII, and that was against one of the statistically best defenses of all-time. our defense is vulnerable against elite QBs. it's been that was since Cowher's days.. yet we've still managed to play in 4 Super Bowls, winning 2 of them. and if not for some unfortunate turnovers, would have won all 4.

i suggest you chill out and let the Steelers do their thing.
