Good luck to us all today and tommorrow!
I with you totally DACEB. This has been the most fun over the last 12 months for me on this forum.
My hat is off to LLT and MOP who have made this ride a blast.

It will be interesting today to see how we fill our needs on the O-Line...DE...D-back...and LB.
(Charles Godfrey...Dre Moore are still on the board but should be taken in the third)
I am hoping for Dre Moore to fall LLT. I think he would be dynamite at RDE, more so than Langford who will realistically be the pick.
In the 4th I see an OT. Will the steelers take Carl Nicks with his legal issues. he would be awesome value but he does not have steeler character. I see Mike Mcglynn.
Would it be too much to ask for Shawn Crable to fall to the 5th (maybe). I think it will be the hardest position to fill without making a reach. Probably Bryan Smith in the 6th makes sense.
Back to rounds 1 & 2. Both totally awesome picks the way they unfolded. I think the steelers could not have chosen better for value at each spot.
I am suprised that Dan Connor, Cliff Avril, Early Doucet and Charles Godfrey are still sitting there. There were some amazing reaches today.
Cheers to another fine day in black and gold
