Runs outside the tackle are what we pay outside linebackers for, isn't it?
I like Hightower, and I won't make any bones about it. If we draft him, I'll be happy. If he goes before our pick, then I'll be unhappy. If we pass on him and he's there, then I'll believe that the Steelers front office has a lot of faith in Sylvester, and they don't see that as as much of a need. I can live with that. Thats why they get paid to make those decisions, and why the Steelers are in the playoffs almost every year.
I understand why people want o-line. And I consider Cordy Glenn a great choice (he was already taken), Jonathon Martin a good choice (he was already taken). I don't consider Zietler a first round talent. And people who want him, or Silotulu, or Konz, or whomever, are placing need over BPA way more than the Steelers will. And Adams has potential bust written all over him.
Of that's the case double team an outside linebacker and its basically the safeties you have to beat and I don't like those chances polamalu or not. I want a linebacker who can make plays outside the box and not one who is limited to 3 gaps. Better linebackers on the board in the 3rd I promise.
