Projected Steelers Draft
 
These are basically what COULD happen in the steeler offseason..I have made 4 different ones... 2 of 'em have FA signings and the other two don't... i'd like to see which one you guys like the most... (number 3 is my personal favorite.. #1 is second favorite)

#1

FA- Drayton Florence

1. Jeff Otah OT Pittsburgh
2. Shawn Crable OLB Michigan
3. Kerry Brown OG Appalachian St.
4. Kendall Langford DE Hampton
5. Darnell Terrell CB Missouri
7. Amarri Jackson WR South Florida

#2

FA- TJ Duckett (many of u mite not want him but the steelers do after pursuing him for 2 straight off-seasons), Isaac Sopoaga (ex UHer incredible strength), Jim Leonhard

1. Chris Williams OT Vandy OR Godser Cherilus, Boston College
2. Roy Scheuning OG Oregon State
3. Charles Godfrey CB Iowa
4. Kendall Langford DE Hampton
5. De'Cody Fagg WR Florida State (6'3 220 guy for BR)
7. Tommy Blake DE/OLB TCU (If not for stress issues this year he'd be 1st rounder)

#3

FA- None probably there will be but none of significant importance....

1. Aqib Talib CB Kansas
2. Carl Nicks OT Nebraska
3. Marcus Smith WR New Mexico State
4. Bruce Davis OLB UCLA
5. Chilo Rachal OG USC
7. Dennis Dixon QB Oregon ( i'm projecting teams stay away from him due to his recent ACL meltdown... this was made before zabransky news.. but i still dont think zabransky is a good fit for us...)

#4

FA- None...

1. Jonathan Stewart RB Oregon
2. Anthony Collins OT Kansas
3. Red Bryant DT Texas A&M (could start groomin for casey hampton...)
4. Zack Bowman CB Nebraska
5. Fernando Velasco C Georgia
7. SirVincent Rogers OG Houston

Great job Rhee Rhee.

I'm looking at the draft from a different angle. I'm looking for 'core players' to help out on STs and to provide depth for aging positions (DL & DBs).

1. Reggie Smith CB/S Okl
2. Anthony Collins OT Kan or Carl Nicks OT Neb
3. Jamar Adams S Mich or Thomas Decoud S Cal
4. Kendall Langford DE Hamp or Demario Pressley DT/DE N.C.St.
5. Jacob Hester FB/RB LSU or Chilo Rachal OG USC
7. Keilen Dykes DT/DE W.Va. or Marcus Dixon DE Hamp

If you like Langford, LLT, you really need to look up Dykes. This guy HAS to be a Steeler. I'm not sure he'll last until the 7th, but he is a late rounder. There's a great interview with him that I found on the first page when I googled him. W. Va. apparently runs schemes similar to the Steelers and it sure sounds like this kid would have no problem playing the unheralded position of 3-4DE.

Hester is that 'core player' type of guy that we need. A tough guy like him could really help on STs. Being a FB, he could possibly fill the role behind Davis, and he is great in short yardage.

Special teams is why I like Decoud CB also, we need an infusion of youth and special teams talent on STs. It does'nt hurt that he looked good at the senior bowl either.

P.S. I would rather have Red Bryant DT over Langford, but I'm not sure when he will come off the board. Bryant would be a solid backup for Casey and would allow us to toy with the 4-3.

:huh:.....i don't know which WVU game you watched that dyke impressed you so much, but it sure must've been the one i never watched. there's not one player on WVU's defence roster that'd i'd even look twice at as an UFA.

Kendall Langford will not last until the 4th round....He'll go in rounds 2 or 3.....

I personally like Chris Williams the best out of the OTs that will be available when the Steelers pick in the first round....If Oher would have stayed in the draft then he would have been my personal pick...But I'll take Williams....Cherilus or Otah would be fine also....

As for Marcus Smith....He has Steeler written all over to me....I think the 3rd round is to early for him....I think he will be there in the 4th round.....

i completely agree about marcus smith being a steeler... BUT at the senior bowl practices he was marred with dropped balls... not as much compared to bowman BUT he had quite a bit.. (interestingly enough he did 10 pushups for every drop...his arms had to have gotten a workout) i personally am not as high on williams but hey i'd love to see otah in black and gold!

Great effort. All very worthy options.

I am leaning towards number 2 as my favourite without the free agents. (maybe a free agent LB for depth) I like rounds 1, 3 & 4. Good picks.

Hopefully I will have one up soon for you to look at. Unfortunately I might be a bit light on U of H guys (sorry)
