i had CB greg toler going to the steelers with pick #132 as a small school, ike taylor clone. cardinals took him at #131.
as for laurinaitus, the rams were trying hard to trade back into the `1st round to pick him but had no takers (which makes me think the steelers were confident with the ziggy hood pick).
in the rams case, sometimes the best trades are the ones you dont make. good for them. in several years long and james can be one a hell of a tandem.
