Remember when McShay said that Jevan Snead had the potential to be the #1 pick in the draft, so Snead declared early, went undrafted, and has been an alcoholic mess ever since?

NEVER trust McShay.

Also check out another receiver in late 5 or 6.

Marquise Marquess Wilson*, WR, Washington State
Height: 6-3. Weight: 194. Arm: 31.18. Hand: 9.28.
40 Time: 4.51.
Projected Round (2013): 3-5.

All time leading receiver at Washington State, left on his own partway through his Senior season because of alleged abuse at WSU by Leach. There have been others that have left.

I would like to see someone replace Plaxico at least by next year and save some salary cap space. Also give Ben a big tough receiving target.

If they fall to #17 in the 4th, do we take a stab at one of the top 2 QB's left?
I was thinking we'd take a QB in the 5th-7th round to develop as our 3rd string QB. But if you have a chance to grab a guy who would have been a top 10 pick last year and many thought would be gone early in the 2nd round, I think you take him even though you still have more pressing needs at S, TE.

It may be a little early to draft a future replacement for Ben as he probably has 5 years left. QB's seem to have such high value, a young backup that shows well in preseason or a mop up game can get you a 1st or 2nd round pick in a trade.

Is I've said in several threads:

I think that they might... but in R5.

Barkley, Zysert, Nassib, Bray, Wilson, & Jones are ALL still available... so, instead of "reaching" in R4, I propose that they wait & see who's available in R5. If they are all indeed gone, then they simply go for Ryan Griffin (or Alex Carder) in R6.

Oh no, it's a real feeling. It's a very unsettling feeling, too. We showed "interest" in him, but with how far he's fallen, I just have this nagging feeling he's going to be our fourth round pick.

Looks like we're trying to trade Dwyer to pick up an extra pick. I can dig it.

Also, I wouldn't mind Barkley, to be honest. The only knock on dude is his arm. He's a perfect fit in Haley's offense and I can see us flipping him for a pick down the road if he looks good in limited action.

Yeah I see it being one of those three too, I don't think it will be Rambo because Rambo I think has off field problems and after Ta'amu and Rainey last year, I think the FO is eager to avoid that. I also think we go with Mike Mauti of PSU with one of our sixth or sevenths. We brought him in too and I think they see him as a guy who can wait while Foote is a stopgap.

QBs are getting picked fast so far. They were probably afraid that there was no QB they like left after the 4th.

Also they may not prefer Greene. He's more of a MACK linebacker which means he will sit behind Timmons. Mauti is my pick if they want to get a BUCK linebacker.

Say what you will, but this kid was a second round pick last year. He struggled in his senior year at college, but I think we're all forgetting that Roethlisberger is going to be mentoring him. It's not like he'll be getting his cues from a Mark Sanchez or Brandon Weeden.

We're shitting all over a kid that was highly regarded a couple of years ago. Look, he has confidence issues in the pocket but that's coachable and thus fixable. Relax, guys.

That's what I am thinking too. No disrespect to Batch and Leftwich who are good dudes but we put a lot of pressure on the D to win games when Ben goes down.
