Default Will we draft a NT?

Or will Ziggy move there? If he doesn't move to the nose, when will Heyward become a starter?

Would you be OK with a 2012 draft which include no nose tackle?

I might think the Steelers will move up in this round to get a NT, maybe Ta'amu or Chapman

I hope so too. I was that we didn't take Ta'amu in the 3rd.

If we lose our chance at Ta'amu or Chapman, (I would think if either is there in the 4th we would take one of them) I think they can actually pick up Nicolas Jean Baptiste very late and even Ishmaa’ily Kitchen, of Kent State in the 7th or as a UDFA

Next year's draft if very deep at NT candidates and the team may just be willing to wait it out and get by with Hampton, McClendon, and a late round pick.

My original mock draft I have us taking Fangupo at #4. Either 3-4 NT will do at this point in the draft. Value is there but if it's Fangupo without making any trades, I'd be happy.

If we take a DT or two and a QB I'm happy.

I don't understand all the love for Ta'amu. Here's more proof:
