RB's can be found anywhere, we need to get off the notion that we need a stable of bruisers like Redman and Dwyer. Anybody see the late round rookies that the Colts and Redskins started at RB this weekend?

If Heath is under contract, I think he counts against the cap. Expect to see Paulson and maybe David Johnson to start the season. I wish we kept Saunders and released Pope.
I hope they use a 4th/5th round pick on a TE. TE is a important part of Haley's offensive scheme and Ben also likes a big target. When Miller comes back, then the Steelers can use a two TE formation effectively.

the Steelers are reportedly very pleased and high on last year's 7th round draft pick David Paulson...

Like Dan-O says, Paulson and Miller will be a good TE tandem.

I like Swope, as he is a guy drawing comparisons to Eric Dekker, Jordy Nelson in the way he plays.

I honestly can see Gilbert and Adams at the LT and RT spots, Pouncey and Decastro on the inside and either Colon or Foster at the other OG spot this coming September..........and have no problem with that.
still not good enough - that is a weak line, I want a dominating LT



I know one thing, we've wasted enough 1st rd picks on defense lately - Ziggy and Cam were fizzles - Steelers have a much better track record picking OL early

Alabama or LSU OL players - that's what I want this time, big SEC hogs

I would like our first round pick to be Chance Warnack OG from Ala. He's 6'3 325, and he is an absolute mauler. I'm looking forward to see what he can do against the stout Irish line tonight.

I'm also gonna keep a close eye on Warmack in tonight's game, it will be interesting to watch him try to block Manti Te'o.

Bama and LSU not really putting out any great OT's that I can think of. Herman Johnson, Ciron Black, Joseph Barksdale. Been a while since Chris Samuels came out of bama.

Cant see the Steelers picking O line this year in the 1st and I really think the guys like Luke Joeckel and Lewan that are the top prospects are not dominant franchise LT's anyways.

That is no match if Warmack gets hands on Teo. Too much size difference. I think Bama by 14 tonight.

Watch Barrett Jones, as well.
