Round 5) C Doug Legursky- Marshall
Round 6) (I believe this is the pick we gave up fro Rossum)
Round 7) S Jamie Silva-Boston College

FA pickups:
LB Carlos Dansby
OT Travelle Wharton
WR Justin Gage


Okay folks....what says the Steeler Nation?
Do I get the job permanantly?
Or should I keep the day job?
...looks good to me. oher probably won't be an option. his stock has been rising all season.he may end up being the 2nd tackle off the board. somebody like otah may be a more realistic pick. while i still think another option at guard is important, after a season of mayhan at center ,i now think finding a center may trump guard in order of needs. unless of course stapleton is a well kept secret.........

An interception machine, Dwight Lowery led the nation with nine picks in 2006 after registering 13 in 15 games at a Junior College...Has been timed as fast as 4.26
It isn't that I don't like him or want him because I do; I just feel we are better off at corner than most people think to take one that early.

But Pittsburgh has traded up in the past to get players that they really want. If he last past 15, I could see us trading up to grab him.

with the gapping holes and lack of quality depth on both lines .......on second thought, just about every position, i don't think they have the luxury of giving up picks, in package deals, as they have in the past. i could be wrong, but i think this team is in serious trouble , between losing players to FA,and aging vets. if they don't score some solid players in this draft, and if some of these young guys don't step up..( colon, stapleton,woodly, timmons,etc...), IMO, the future doesn't look good.

Not to high-hack this thread but...

Ike played running back in college but was moved to DB because he struggled with catching passes out of the backfield. Ike is a great corner already; he can stay with almost anyone. Most of the time he even gets in position to make a pick it is because he jumps it, not just because of a blind throw. He would be one of the absolute best in the league if he could catch, but even without that skill he is elite. Plus, if he could catch he would most likely still be at running back - He was a pretty good one.

BTW: Anyone who thinks more interceptions means someone is a better corner, you need to study the position quite a bit better. DeAngello Hall is often among the league lead in interceptions, but that means nothing. He takes chances every game to make a big play and in turn gives up two or three. Players such as Namdi Asumougha and Champ Bailey on the other hand don't get many picks because they shut down their receiver. If the ball is being thrown your way in the first place as a corner, you usually didn't do your job right. Ike is more of the latter type of cornerback, the type that most teams want over an interception artist.

how is silva so low? he's an all-american! although i love jamie as a player theres no way hes a 7th rounder UNLESS he runs a 4.7-4.8...

the rest of the draft is GREAT! although by picking up dansby is a huge question mark because y would the cards give up someone like him?

I agree that Center may trump guard, you are right on the money....but when looking at the draft class and taking value into consideration....I REALLY liked the guard and center I put into my draft at those rounds...Radovich is probably one of the top 2 or 3 "athletic" guards coming out..and Legursky is one of my picks as a sleeper that may start very early.

Also agree with Otah being a possibility...We are incredibly lucky that the OT class this year is top heavy.

Silva runs in the 4.5 range...but alot of "experts" see him as a tweener and doesnt quite perfectly fit as a safety or as a linebacker. Your right though, any of us that have seen him play know that he will probably rise in the draft....but as of right now he is ranked as a 7th rounder. I used the current rankings but would guess that Silva may end up being a 4-5 rounder before all is said and done.
