Default Our Steelers Draft Prospects

Paste or List some of your favorite Steelers Draft Prospects

Center
Mike Pollak 6'4 292 lbs Arizona St.

By: Robert Davis

Pollak moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore, and did not let go of the job. He started 31 consecutive games to close out his Sun Devil career, earning All Pac 10 honors as a junior and senior.
Pollak is an intelligent lineman that is rarely out of position. He sets up quickly off the snap, stays low, and plays with very good balance. He shows good agility in a short area, and can get out and block on the move. Pollak has a mean streak on the field, and does not stop until the whistle blows.
Pollak is not very stout at the point of attack. He will not drive defenders off the ball, and can be pushed around by stronger interior lineman. He will need to get stronger in the NFL to be able to hold his ground more consistently. Pollak has moved to the top of most center boards, and will likely be the first center selected. He is a guy who will play hard and battle, but will not overpower defenders. He is a solid, steady center and should be a nice addition to an NFL interior line.

Branden Albert 6'6" 317 lbs Virginia

By: Robert Davis

Albert earned a starting nod at left guard as a freshman in 2005, and has held down the job since.
Albert has a great frame for an offensive lineman. He almost looks like a tackle on the field. He is a solid athlete for a guard, and shows solid lateral agility in a short area. Where Albert sets himself apart is in the running game though. He is very strong and has the power to simply drive defenders out of the play. He opens up running lanes on a consistent basis and can dominate even the biggest lineman at the point of attack.
Albert is still a work in progress. He didn?t start playing football until his junior year in high school, and is still refining his technique. His size can work against him at times. He is so tall that he has a tendency to not set up low enough, allowing the defender to gain leverage on him. Albert could have used another year in college to be more consistent and round of his skills. In a weak class for guards though, he still appears to be a guy who will be taken early. His upside is tremendous and he could hear his name called in the top 50 picks.
