Default Re: what if?......

I have no problem with the last two picks. I'd be a little disappointed with Nick Perry just because OLB is hardly a position of weakness or need, and we find quality guys there outside the first all the time. But I've learned that whoever the Steelers take is probably the best choice, so I wouldn't complain.

Then again, IDK how well Perry translates to an ILB role. I don't know much about him but maybe the Steelers would do with him what they did with Timmons (who also projected as a pass rushing OLB). Since Hightower would mostly be stopping the run and rushing the passer, maybe Nick Perry could play that role just as well (If this were the case, I would not hesitate to make the pick). He does have almost identical measurables to Hightower (Hightower is 6'2 265 4.62 40, Perry is 6'3 271 4.64 40). Perry definitely comes off more as an OLB to me right now though.
