I think we should see what David Boston, Charles Rogers, Mike Williams, David Terrell and Peter Warrick are doing before we look WR at pick #15.

If Clinton-Dix is there, he'd be a perfect fit. We'd be far better off with Foote/Williams/Spence winner at ILB and Clinton-Dix at FS than with Clark and Mosley.

In the championship game you hear Brent Musberger say "Big Nix finally shows up!". NO way in hell will the Steelers draft Louis Nix.
Nix is a poor fit as a NT. He's better off as a 4-3 DT. He's almost 6'3. Tough to get under a center when you're that tall. Better if you're 6" or 6'1, so you have the leverage to dig down and stand the center up. That's why a guy like Ziggy has such issues holding up against the run inside. I don't think Nix fits the Steelers' scheme at all.

I bet we don't even take Dix. I wouldn't be surprised if he fell to the 2nd tbh

Yeah, I doubt we take him, as much as I'd like to, just because he's got the suspension history. But a corner with ballhawking skills would work too. ike's scheduled to make 11 mil. Chances are, he's gone. Who you gonna throw out there, Allen and Gay?

He would be great back up and he played pretty well the last 2 games.

It was hard watching opponents run all over us. Obviously our trench guys are too soft to stop the run. So we need to draft tough guys to get back on the map. Bret Keisel must go & we keep Heyward & Fangupo...
