I would be more than happy with either Dion Jordan or Ezekiel Ansah as James Harrison's eventual successor at ROLB.

Ansah's tape is definitely more impressive, although it was against weaker competition. I wouldn't be upset with either though. Both are developing prospects having not played DE/OLB for very long (Ansah apparently never even played football until college). Personally I think I like Ansah more as again his tape makes him look like much more of a playmaker than Jordan's, although Jordan may be a better prospect physically.

So everyone has pretty much given up on Jason Worilds as Harrison's replacement?
Steelers Probably won't draft an OLB that's 6'5+, since typical Steelers OLBs are 6'-6'2 and 240-260LBs range.

I haven't but at the same time when we draft there will almost be too many good OLB prospects to not choose one. Worilds has been impressive (to me, not to others) but not impressive enough to rule out taking another difference maker at the position.

If we were to go safety or ILB, however, I'd still have no problem giving Worilds a full tryout as a starter if we cut ties with Harrison. Just saying we're in a position where the pass rush needs to improve sooner rather than later and with Worilds no sure thing, and an abundance of pass rushing talent available in the draft where we choose, it's likely we will go that route.

I would think ILB, S, and TE would be the positions drafted in the first 3 rounds by the Steelers.

If Spence is back healthy I think ILB is not a big need but depth would be nice tho

1. Ezekiel Ansah, OLB, BYU/Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
2. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
3. Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State
4. William Gholston, DE, Michigan State
5. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina(could be a huge steal when he gets healthy)
6. Michael Mauti, ILB, Penn State
7. Brandon Ford, TE, Clemson

No doubt he's a high ceiling guy. I'm just not sure that he's a 3-4 OLB. He looks more like a 4-3 DE. The weaker competition may be a reason that he looks better at tape than Jordan too.

I'm not giving up Worilds yet. Keep in mind that a rookies rarely starts in Steelers' 3-4 scheme in their first year. It's time to pick one for the future.

How would people feel about drafting Jonathan Cooper? He is the #2 ranked guard behind Warmack.
He'd solidify the interior for years with Pouncey and DeCastro.
