Steelers Draft Day Opinions (So Far)
 
I'm a little disappointed so far. I feel like we are picking like a team with the 30th pick... when there is 15th pick talent still on the board. I like Miller and McFadden. Essex... I'm not sure what they were thinking here. Elton Brown should have gone here... that's the last I'll say about him. Gibson is fine to address the WR need, although I don't understand the hell bent need to find a Plax clone... Plax himself was not a top WR. Although LB is a need, I may have taken OG Scott Young, Brigham Young to make up for the Essex mis-step. Will there be an RB taken? I think we need one in the 6th round. Bring in Kay-Jay Harris. Character is not a concern now since we picked up problem child Wallace. Take DT Darrell Shropshire in the 7th to round us out. Just my take...

no excellent draft

Heath Miller- will improve ben's confidence and rating alot throughout the season
Bryant McFadden- a good tackling CB, with good speed too
Trai Essex- has versatility, elton brown doesnt have that
Rian Wallace- Solid, kind of fast linebacker that has a nose for the ball to make plays
Chris Komeatu- was a 1st team All American thats an excellent player

and 7th roudn never happened yet

Couple of the picks are good, some of the others I'm not so sure about. Living in Wyoming I get to see Kemoeatu play each year. He is big and NASTY. Great pick that late in the draft.

I'm happy with this draft. I don't know alot about Trai Essex though. The other guys I am happy with especially Miller. Round 7 still coming.

Anyone no anything about Shaun Nua?

I have no info on him

Rest of draft looks pretty good, though agree with earlier comment about Trai Essex

Like it so far, its tough picking 30, but coming off 15-1 just trying to fill in the gaps and add some depth.

I can't find anything on Shaun Nua. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place lol. Anyone got any?

Again, living in Wyoming I get to see BYU play each year. Nua is OK. 7th round is about right for him. I don't have any of his bio info, seems to be a project type player.
