What is today's NFL anyways?

You still need a team that can either run or win TOP, or, if you're the best - you are in the top half of the league in both.
We'll still need a team that can be tops in run stuffing and pass protecting, primarily though - we need better pass rush so we keep these LBs jobs a little more simpler IMO

I'm never 100% sold on anyone - but, there would be worst mistakes taken in the 1st round - isn't any pick a gamble?

If we're gambling on players, I'd like to see us taking Jordan over Te'o. My biggest fear is that Te'o has already hit his ceiling and can't progress any further - this is as good as he's going to get. While that isn't necessarily such a bad thing, when it's put in that light it makes me a little more cautious about taking him that early. Guys like Mingo and Jordan are more questionable prospects, but have much more potential and a much higher ceiling than Te'o does.

If we're going to gamble here, let's go with the prospect that has more room to grow but when he (they) do grow, look out.

ok - so you're say grow past where Te'o is? gotcha

I'd think though - and I would love who you pointing out as well - they'd have plenty of growing to do with our 3-4 no matter who they were - Te'o could in fact be even better - who knows - I would be happy with any of these dudes

I believe that he was referring to leadership.

Regardless, I would take the 2005 Farrior on ANY team... now... in the 70s... in ten years.

If Ray Lewis didn't do his stupid pre-game dance that somehow managed to entrance just about every media member and HOF vote, more people would talk about Farrior IMO. Extremely underrated and undervalued player - even in his later years

I posted this in another thread, but it got not response. I truly think that of all of the years for the Steelers to trade DOWN, this is the perfect year.

Read more:

The truncated version:
Six teams in the top 10 need a QB. But, this QB crop does not really deserve to go top 10. Dallas is looking to take a QB at 18 (right behind the Steelers). I foresee one fo those six teams trading up, in front of Dallas, for a QB... akin to what Baltimore did when they traded up for Joe Flacco.

Agreed.

In 2005, when Ed Reed got the DPOY, Farrior was the better LB than Lewis. Sure, Ray is a great player, but in that year, Farrior was LT-esque.

Speaking of that dance, my mother-in-law saw that dance and was like, "Who the eff is that idiot!?!" Ha, ha, ha... even caual bystanders are offended by his theatrics. Limo drivers, too. (Too soon?)

If we're sitting on the board in the second round and Cordarrelle Patterson is on the board, we just found our Wallace replacement. I'm not even necessarily against trading back to the 25ish spot and taking him, assuming Jordan, Mingo and Elam are all off the board.

Patterson stock has been rising and a few reports have him no higher than mid second. If the steelers like him they would most likely have to trade up in second.

I do hope we address the wr position early on. Other guys I would target would be quitton Patton, Stedman bailey, and Chris Harper (Hines ward mold).

The more and more I look at the draft I hope we do trade back in the first to acquire a extra second or third.
