Draft Tek Correspondents Draft
 
I regulary use draftek.com to check what rounds players may slot into across the seven rounds.

They have just started a live correspondents draft and the writer for the steelers basically threw away the first pick.

Check it out. http://www.drafttek.com/2008Corr1.html

Did some research into who the steeler correspondent was and it turned up this (HOF???)

I know I was pimping Pollack as a second rounder earlier in the year but in the first is a little crazy. If it was 2009 and Alex Mack then I would have no problems.

1st time I've seen Pollack any where near the 1st round. I don't think anyone would be happy with this pick.

never heard of him in my entire life... I even googled him which i think is a little creepy of me... and found nothing except he won an award from visa or something?

Mike Pollack? maybe he just wants diversity :hunch:

I hope they are wrong on the first pick that would be insane.

Mike Pollack from Arizona St.
6'4" / about 298 lb
Some think he is the best Center in the draft.
Pretty solid late 2nd or 3rd round pick.

I highly doubt that we would pass on Talib for a projected 2nd-3rd rounder.

Why would they go that route after signing Hartwig?:doh: You can't afford to throw away a number one pick just as an insurance policy for your off season dealings! :screwy: Especially when this guy has a great chance of still being around in third rd. Hopefully the Steelers brass don't pay any attention to these morons!

Wow...I mean....Wow.


I'm not sure why he would pick Pollack..who, although is considered one of the best Centers in the draft, is universally considered a zone blocker. (..and NOONE thinks he is a first round pick)

For our scheme you would think that Cody Wallace, Doug Legursky, and Fernando Velasco and are considered more our "type" of Center...

I might even add a a lesser known player who fits our system better than Pollack...Drew Miller, from Florida.

All that being said...there is no way we take a center with the first three picks...and may not draft one at all until UDFA

:hatsoff:I like the young center from Wake Forest. But I really dont see the Steelers drafting a Center now that they have signed Hartwig.

Pollack has seen his stock rise as of late, so it's not crazy to see him being discussed. But I haven't seen him anywhere going higher than 2nd, and late 2nd at that.
