Default Re: Like the Heyward Pick but..

I think if they were going to go defensive end that Adrian Clayborn would have been a better fit for the Steeler D than Cameron Heyward. Both Clayborn and Heyward had awesome seasons in 2009 and both had a drop off in 2010 due to the extra attention they were getting in the form of double teams, triple teams, and chip blocks. However Clayborn also played hurt, and has Erbs Palsey. Cameron Heyward was not hurt and doesn't have as much of an excuse for his drop off.

Overall though they shouldn't have picked a d-lineman. We have enough depth there to get by this year, we needed a cornerback who could step up and play right now and that would have been Akamakumara (may have spelled that wrong) or Jimmy Smith. Instead we pick up a guy to add depth to the D-Line which was Number 1 against the run last year. Makes no sense to me.
