When the draft was discussed earlier the team looked more promising now who knows. The Steelers need D line,CB,RB Saftey,Backup QB,WR and by the looks of it a punter. Maybe not all by draft but cleaning house doesn't look like a bad idea

CB is not a big need imo Cortez showed me that he is ready for primetime

1. Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
2. Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama or best safety
3. Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia or the best rb

This would be a perfect draft

Isn't Dion Jordan 6'7? That's a little huge to be a 3-4 OLB where having a low center of gravity is ideal. Don't get me wrong the guy is a beast, but he seems like one of those guys who's locked in as a 4-3 end and nothing else.

He's 6'7 245 and runs a 4.5. I agree with you, having a smaller guy is ideal but this guy makes up for it with his strength and speed. Think Aldon Smith, but less polished. I'm usually luke-warm at best regarding prospects coming into the NFL - especially on a defense like LeBeau's - this kid could break Strahan's sack record in his second season in the NFL.

I could throw you a couple YouTube links on this kid if you want - he's going to be for real.

I know you and others are really high on Dion Jordan ... but the guy has 14.5 sacks at college career 4 fumble force 0 int and 2 pass deflection and 29 tackles for loss... I know he could potentially turn into a beast and what not ... but to say he'll fix the pass rush in 1 year is a bit foolish I think ... And I've watched tape and I am no where near as high on him as you are

and also while somebody like Kyle Van Noy has 20.5 sacks in 3 years ... 4 INT and 13 pass deflections ... 41 tackles for loss and 10 FF ... and can be had in a trade back scenario to gather more draft picks , and maybe even had in the 2nd round ...and our OLB aren't just asked to pass rush they are asked to drop back in coverage more then most 3-4 OLB and that's something Van Noy proved he can do along with rushing the passer

if your talking potential Yes Dion Jordan may have a higher upside ... but I think I like Van Noy more then Jordan ... not to mention Van Noy has a nack for making a big play when his team needs it

Van Noy destroyed my brother's Aztecs. DESTROYED them.

I think that he just made another tackle.

R2?... or will he rise into R1?

I'm really hoping with this serge of now picking maybe anywhere from like 12-19 think that's what I've seen a R2

But in all honestly I think he shoots up to at worst a late R1 ... the Guy is the total package ... not just a Pass rusher but is able to cover too ... and a LB that can do both like a Timmons is so valuable

R1 - Alec Ogletree
R2 - Kyle Van Noy
R3 - Bacarri Rambo

is like a dream draft for me right now ... that would give us the best coverage LB in the game and Ogletree would Allow Timmons to attack much more then he can now, since he's always dropping back in coverage

and Also I highly doubt Rambo is their in the 3rd ...almost guaranteeing he won't

Maybe a little short sighted but the team seems to need offense a little more than defense but who could pass up Manti T'eo(forgive my spelling) if available..... He'd look great in Black&Gold. With how well the team does using Heath maybe Shannahan(Pitt) and a Top RB would put this team in the top 10 Offensively

like the alec Ogletree pick, we need a stud in the middle, next need IMO is Safety if a good one is there in round 2, but it might be drafting the best available player as the best aproach if an obvious need filler isn't there at any given pick. Scouting department needs to start over achieving!
