STEELERS DRAFT
 
I think that the STEELERS should stay right where we are at #15. We can draft a replacement for Joey, with Jarviss Moss or Patrick Willis. And we definitely do need a big back to compliment Willie. We can draft this big back in the second or third round with either Michael Bush or Hunt. Offensive lineman can be drafted late and still become great players, it makes no sense to take an OL high in the first round. All I know is that we need a big back and a great linebacker to fill the hole left by Joey. I would love for us to move up and take Adrian Peterson but I doubt we do that. As long as we get a linebacker in the first round like: Posluzny, Willis, Moss, or Timmons that would be great. And of course a big back in the second. GO STEELERS!

Steelers won't get a back in the second. Maybe 4th-7th, if they even get a back.

And the obsession with the 'big back' continues.

Patrick Willis is an ILB so I don't see how he can be a replacement for Joey Porter.

We don't need a RB? We don't need a starting RB. Willie is just fine. But come'on would you really be comfortable with Dookie as the main RB if Willie went down with serious injury? I know I wouldn't and I think drafting a RB on the first day of the draft would be a very smart idea.

Plus other then Willie or Dookie there is much there at RB not unless the coaches really think Jon Kuhn is going to be a player.lol

Value may dictate that we take a back on the first day...OLB..CB...OT... and Punter are the only positions I would put over RB..and we can get a very good punter in the 5th round. If there is a run on CB's or OT's...I would grab Hunt or Leonard in the second or Wright in the 3rd before I reached for a CB or OT in those rounds....The way I look at it is...If we are up in the second..do I want Tony Hunt as a RB ... Tanard Jackson as a CB...or Ryan Harris as an OT?....I personally see very little difference between Tanard Jackson in the second or C.J. Gaddis in the fourth....or Ryan Harris in the second and Brandon Frye in the fourth....BUT the difference between Hunt and a fourth or fifth rounder is pretty significant.

WHY DOES EVERYONE INSIST WE DRAFT A CORNER ON DAY ONE IF AT ALL!!!! Yes we do need to draft a running back. If we get a LB and WR in the first 2 rounds (not neccessarily i that order either) look for us to take a long look at a few running backs that may slip to the third round. he doesnt have to be big but it would help. I think if the steelers havent started to narrow down the takent in the first round to 2-4 potential 1st round picks, the we should shop our pick for a later 1st rounder and a extra 2nd and/or 3rd. Somebody big may fall into our lap at 15, i mean who the hell thought Lienhart and bush would drop the way they did??? Theres alot of late 1st and 2nd rnd. potential at LB and besides Gaines Adams and Calvin Johnson,i dont think there is much separation between the rest of the WR's and LB's in the 1st and 2nd round.

I didn't think we need them early do you? IMHO. willie, poo, is a decent 1,2, plus, isn't Verron comin back if fully healed, etc.? With the monster draft at WR (unlike last year), can we pick up a beast WR before RB? Probably not, Oh well. But Crap! Tomlin sounds like he will look at best available more than 1st need...interesting!
