I hope so.

You & I both know that the combine drops good players down. Let's hope that is exactly what happens.

btw: Jerry Rice... too slow. LOL

I would like to see the Steelers trade up. Monte Ball looks like a great back but to be quite honest the offensive line can't run block. I also think that the Steelers should look into their own back yard and pick up Pitt TE Shanahan. The combination of Ben missing Heath and the dink and dunk offense Shanahans size would help with ball control. Maybe a trade with Washington for a certain WR and maybe a RB of their choice for Cousins could solve the backup QB situation

If the Steelers do draft Te'o, then maybe it's time to give serious consideration to switch to a 4-3 defense.

No need to trade up for Ball. He'll be there in R3 (if one wanted him).

Please, explain. (I'm not being argumentative; I really want to know why you want the 4-3/see the 4-3 as an option.)

A lack of good pass rushing OLBs. Remember, Harrison may not be back and Worlids has been up and down and has had injury issues.

Ah... I see.

In the 4-3, Timmons "could" play OLB... and Spence as the other OLB... with Te'o as the MLB. And, Woodley plays DE. I see where you are going.

BUT...

Assuming that they stick with the 3-4... but add an OLB (& Te'o). Timmons & Te'o would be an amazing pair of ILBs; Woodley recommits himself; and, they draft Shayne Skov or Alex Van Noy. Problem(s) solved.

Te'o Will be there at #17 unless somebody buys into the hype like they did Dontari Poe last year. Spence and Timmons are both better suited to be WILL LB in a 4-3. I think a real pass rusher will be there at #17 for us....Maybe Mingo.

If Mingo ran 4.5 and put up 30 reps he would be picked 3rd by the Raiders. Hard to say what teams will do until after the combine. It's fun to speculate though.

If thats the case, why are we paying over 20 mill for Harrison and Woodley?
