24th pick: Cordy Glenn, Hightower and Worthy
 
are all still there. Which do you take? I would pull the trigger on Hightower only because the draft is so weak at ILB and we do have a serious need at ILB. I think it's a deeper draft for Guards/Tackles as well as interior lineman.

I would take Hightower or Glenn in that order. Was hoping to get Zeitler in the 2nd but his stock is too high and he'll probably go early second, but there are plenty of other OG/OT to take in the 2nd. If we went Glenn or another OL in the first I'd look at Ta'amu in the second.

Considering the decreasing belief by many that Glenn has the frame to be a guard and is clearly more of a tackle, and Worthy is more of a 4-3 DT than a 3-4 NT, I would take Hightower out of these three without batting an eye. Also, as the OP mentioned, the draft is deeper at those positions than it is at ILB.

I know everybody is high on Hightower BUT we have 3 stars right now as LBs (Harrison, Woodley and Timmons) and only 1 solid player on the OL.

Don't you think we would be guilty of IGNORING THE OL again if we pick Hightower over Glenn?

I have a feeling that Hightower ranks higher on the Steelers' board than Glenn. I also think a lot of the other OL candidates that will be available at 24 would be a reach, and Colbert isn't a fan of that, especially in the first round.

i like your reasoning. i feel that the steelers have not been ignoring the OL but have decided not to reach for one in round 1. i like how we draft and we do well because we generally take the best player available.

We will take the highest rated player on our board, we arent as desperate as people think. Although I would not be surprised if we move u or down in the draft if A. someone is there we want, or B. move down to stock up.... Also dont be surprised if we go after a CB in the 1st round.

Is there any CB's in the first round capable of starting this year in LeBeau's defense? If not, then no reason to go for a CB after getting Brown and Allen last year. It's a realistic posibility that Allen and/or Brown will become starting quality corners and after playing as well as they did when they were given opportunities last year, I would say they deserve to get a chance. If there is a starting CB in the first round I would understand it (idk if there is or not, I'm just saying if), but if not I dont see why we would draft a first rounder to sit on the bench.

I agree, we will draft the highest rated player on our board as that is our philosophy.

however, I would be very very surprised if we selected a CB in Round 1 as we already have Ike Taylor and young CBs that we are very high on in Keenan Lewis, Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen.
