Re: Was Steve McLendon That Bad? And What About Louis Nix?
I think this is the year it's near impossible to pick what's going to happen. Off season development of Shamarko and Spence's health, in the off season workouts will dictate the draft. As will the FA this year. I think they are going to let many FA walk, but expect Keisel may not be one of them. And the Dline is not nearly as bad as some suggest, that includes Ziggy and McClendon, it was scheme and injuries - and those went hand in hand.
I can easily. See the Steelers going best on the board , as dictated by other teams drafting earlier in the draft. I think all told the Steelers will be content to go Secondary, linebacker, and dline even. I would not be surprised if a receiver was picked but expect that not to be a first round choice. Likely second. And finally, should one of the three OT slip to 15 (weirder things have happened), I could see the Steelers tempted at that point in time also.
It's just more difficult this year than other years IMO.
