Banks on Pick #24
 
Don Banks from SI says we should probably take...


Pittsburgh Steelers
Cordy Glenn, OG-OT, Georgia. The Steelers are being given Memphis DT Dontari Poe in plenty of mocks, and he makes sense as a replacement for veteran Casey Hampton, who is coming off ACL surgery. But have you seen the state of the Steelers' offensive line the past two seasons? Until convinced otherwise, we consider Pittsburgh's OL issues to be its top priority.

Tend to agree the OL needs some addressing AGAIN...

I think we need an OL, but my money's on Mark Barron at Safety.

No need for that, the o line is priority and NT needs an immediate replacement. A first rounder on a safety when we have good safeties and Mundy as a backup is not necessary, if Glen is available we should get him.

True, we got nothing at guard, whereas we can squeeze some quality years out of safety. I wouldn't mind seeing two guards in the first two rounds - Glenn and someone like that Osemele kid - then not worrying about our line for the next four-five years. :thumbsup:

Glenn would be a meh pick at our spot. He'd definitely be there at our spot but I think Konz, Hightower, and Burfict are better value picks if they're still there.

Agree, if Hightower is there at our pick, we should be taking him. I like Burfict but he does have some issues that may keep the Steelers away from him.

I've seen more than a few mocks where DeCastro, Glenn and Konz are all gone before #24.

DeCastro will definitely be gone. No question. He's the top interior lineman in the draft. Konz will likely be gone. But I'm almost 100 percent certain Glenn will be there at our spot.

We wouldn't draft Konz anyway...he has no G experience really and is a highly touted C. Why would you draft a C when you need a guard? Glenn is a good option and a great blocker. Zeitler could be awesome if coached properly and Adams is so inconsistent...experience in college doesn't always translate into the NFL, including Kemo and Colon.
