[QUOTE=MontaniSemperLiberi;1281782]So here are some of my thoughts from last year going into the draft:
Le'Veon Bell and Brad Wing - check.
Le'Veon Bell, predicted the need for a backup at center behind Pouncey, and emphasized the need to draft safeties - check.

I think Jon Bostic is the most complete LB in the draft that fits this need, but I'm really hoping Sean Spence recovers to backup both positions and eventually replace James Harrison (after putting on more muscle) -or- we somehow get Rolando McClain so we can sure up RB/WR/QB/S depth via the draft. If we do end up picking a linebacker via the draft ideally it'd be Teo (2nd) or Bostic (2nd or 3rd... but honestly I think Bostic has better potential and wouldn't be upset if we traded back and selected him instead so we'd have more 2/3 round picks to address other positions).[/QUOTE}
Thumper Linebacker inside (reference Timmons): Vince Williams - check.
Le'Veon Bell in 2nd Round - Nailed it.
Can't really remember that far back but are you sure I wasn't laughing at the Geno Smith pick.
