That would cost us a lot though. I believe he is expected to go top 5.

If he slips down some, I say do it.

Interesting that in Scout Inc.'s Top 32 there are no skill position players until #23 (Geno Smith) and only 5 in the top 32 (2 QBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE).

Only thing I worry about Te'o is he might just be another ND player with alot hype and then becomes a bust....

I'm hard on Tomlin just like the next man, but no one can argue that Tomlin's secondaries as a whole haven't been better than Cowher's. Even Gay turned out good last season.

The edge goes to Tomlin for drafting the secodary, wr's and Olinemen.

Ike Taylor, Troy Polamalu, Chris Hope, Darren Perry, Deshea Townsend....Under Cowher....Tomlin beats that?

Tomlin has drafted Wallace, Brown and Sanders....Plax, Hines and El....sorta can say for certain none of the 3 young punks will be hall of famers. Plax and El are not super stars but will probably be better than Brown and Sanders in the long run.

Tomlin has drafted 1 lineman...Pouncey , sorta the obvious number 1 pick....The rest have been flops or just ok.

I have to think this is good for us... There will definitely be some good talent dropping to us because of this. I'm guessing Casey Hampton's replacement will finally be found. It sure would be nice if we could trade up to get Manti Te'o but it would also be nice to win the lottery today. Fact is neither will happen.

If I had to guess today: Sylvester Williams or John Jenkins.

As for those of you who think we won't take a DT in round 1... I say you are wrong. I also think this will be the draft that moves us to a 4-3 next year. That will be Tomlin's great idea to get us to the promise land.

1. If Star is there, then all bets are off.

2. SteelersCanada and I have been discussing NT. Him opposed; me for (to a degree: see bellow).

3. I was a huge fan of Ta'amu. I thought that he'd be a R1 pick, and then, he injured his shoulder, and his production dropped off. I thought that he was the steals of the entire draft. YES, he was brought back... but, he could spend a year in jail. So, I'm not sure that his future is certain... and NT is the KEY to the 3-4.
