Re: Most Glaring Need: OLB Depth
"#46 – Pittsburgh Steelers – Jeremiah Attaochu – OLB – Georgia Tech
Jarvis Jones will get first crack but the Pittsburgh Steelers are driven by the success of their linebackers. Jeremiah Attaochu will remind them a lot of Joey Porter and James Harrison. He’s not only a gifted pass rusher but he’s fiery and isn’t afraid to talk."
Guess I'm NOT the only one: "I think you're right about none of those guys being available at pick #97. Pass rushers generally go early. I would be perfectly fine with any of those 3 guys at pick #46, and would personally not be disappointed with Attaochu at #15. I feel strongly that he's going to be a really good pro - likely even more productive than he was in college. He just turned 21 in January, and he's already Georgia Tech's all time sack leader. He's known to be a good guy and hard worker, and you can see it in his game tape. He never stops until the whistle blows.
I'll make a prediction here that contradicts the online "experts." Attaochu will be selected in the 1st round. I think NFL teams are going to see what I see, even if the draftniks don't."
