to avoid multiple threads in different forums, and since yesterday was such a successful gathering of steelerfans, i say we just create a main discussion thread here to bullshit and analyze.

we can then move it on out when the draft is over and the crowds are gone.

with that being said the RAMS are officially on the clock. :tt04:

What? An official thread? What kind of a jackass would try and stop multiple thread spamming??

:chuckle:

Let's get another O-Lineman, and if not, work on that D!

How far could we move up with giving up our 4th???

An would NT Chapman still be there for us in 3???

Best player available. I think one of these two picks will be a RB.

Hawaii 5-0

in the 2nd round we could move up six spots from #54 to #48.

in the 3rd round we could move up eleven spots from #86 to #75.

as for Chapman, I would love to get him in the 3rd round but I don't think he will last to #86. but then, I never thought DeCastro would still be available at #24 either...

our 4th would move us up 11 spots in the 3rd round (basically moving from the 24th pick to the 13th).

Normally I'm adverse to picking two guys from the same type of position in the first two rounds but Timmons/Woodley was a nice one-two punch in 2007. Wouldn't kill me if we did this here especially in light of the reasons you're saying.

Adam Schefter seems to indicate that the Steelers are going for another OL pick.

I am going to think it will be Massie.We had him in and he doesn't have the red flags that Adams does.

Given the utter lack of talent on the line, two rookies SHOULD be starting. But they probably won't. At least not immediately, once Colon goes out and injures himself in training camp things might get interesting.

i like the pick, but DT's were starting to come off the board big time and we need one REALLY bad.....i'm not sure Ta'amu will be there next time around. We've got to start working on that aging defensive line.

The first 2 picks aren't surprising though. Everybody remember Rooney's public comments right after we lost in the playoffs? Ben's getting to be 30 and we need to keep our QB upright and uninjured. The bosses stern words are now seen very clearly.

GMU Steeler

Mike Adams is a good pick, but he needs to get real strong, real quick. Until he does, he's a back-up. Also, I believe the FO fully expects Gilbert to shine at LT, meaning Adams is a RT for the foreseeable future.
