Re: thinkin real hard for thursday nite !!!!
I've been hearing Vacarro is coveted by a few teams needing a safety as early as Tampa Bay, Carolina, New Orleans, St. Louis, and Dallas trading up ahead of the Steelers.
Austin and Patterson may actually both not go as high as projected. Remember WR Stephen Hill from last year who was the wow guy at the combine with the same low production numbers in college didn't get taken until the 2nd round by the jets. St Louis may choose Austin leaving Patterson for us or us taking advantage of a team willing to trade up for him.
And then there are those two Guards. Guards just don't traditionally go that early let alone two. So one could be there for the Steelers. Do they take another O lineman who will make pro bowls for the next ten years or draft a safety who won't officially be a starter until the earliest 2015?
My gut instinct is Jarvis Jones will be there at 17. Steelers had Harrison for only a short window they may accept the same from Jones if his neck and spine problems cut his career short. Depends on the medical. Could Jones play at inside if Worilds comes on strong this year? He has the ideal size of an inside LB as well. Imagine him moving all over the field.
Assuming the two Guards are gone I personally would like to see them draft Patterson.
Either way it should be exciting if we get one of these players
But if gone trade down and get a quality player like
