WOW!

San Diego could snag him before us.
He is now a top 20 pick. We get our NT in the 2nd round now unless someone else moves up.

Poe goes out and puts up 44 on the bench and runs a 4.98 40yd dash. The guy weighs 350 pounds!! This guy is a freak athlete, if we could land him im all for it, but after that display of athleticism he might be gone. And on another note Vontaze Burfict ran a 5.06 40yd dash. Very disappointing time when you compare his size to Poe's.

OR, we trade down a few spots and still draft Ta'amu in the 1st. Pickup a spare 4th round pick and draft OG Osemele in the 2nd,
Mitchell Schwartz in the 3rd,
James-Michael Johnson LB and Kevin Koger TE in the 4th

Yeah, Maurice Clarett thought Burfict ran a slow time. This should put an end to the talk of wanting him in the 1st round because "he's a beast".

I think Burfict is a good talent, he just hasnt matured yet. If he ends up with a veteran team with a no nonsense coaching staff he could develop into a solid player. He has shown flashes in his career of being an absolute monster, but hes also shown hes a hot head with late hits, unnecessary roughness penalties. I would be shocked if anybody drafted him before the mid to late 2nd round

Ta'amu does not seem first round worthy to me. Hate to pass on Cordy Glenn or Donta Hightower for him. If they really wanted him could trade down out of the first into top 10 2nd round and still probably get him.

If Glenn or Hightower is available, I doubt they trade down. The question is that if all three are gone before the Steeler's pick, what they should do. In this case trading down may be the best option (unless DeCastro magically drops).

The reason I say Ta'amu would be picked in the 1st, is that I doubt he gets past the Colts in the top of the 2nd. They will need a NT if Pagano has them switching to a 3-4 and after Poe, he is probably the only one that might be able to start next season.

Ta'amu is a top 50 talent, but I think he will go before the 40th pick.
