I feel that the top four tackles will be off the board by the time they pick at 23 so that leaves the only feasable choice at O-line as Brandon Albert. At DB or WR, I believe either Sweed, Hardy, or King will be the options. I feel King may be a bit of a reach at 23 and I like Sweed over Hardy. So, that leaves Albert or Sweed. Either one would be a solid selection here but I went with Sweed based on the recent signing of Hartwig, the release of Wilson, and the tremendous depth of this year's offensive line class compared to the lack of depth in this year's class of wide receivers.

My rationale for the second pick:
I understand the Steelers pressing need at offensive line but if King is still available near the 53rd pick and he was considered at 23 a trade here makes sense to get a guy with first round talent on your board regardless of position.

My rationale for the third pick:
I haven't seen any soft qualities in Davis, just a motor and play making ability. I truly believe that the Steelers could go with Barton here but would choose Davis simply because they know he would not be available by the time they picked again at 119.

My rationale for the fourth pick:
3rd round talent on their board available at 119 makes it a no brainer. Barton is a player who has been very productive versus strong competition at the college level and I believe he will be just as solid of a pro player as Brandon Albert.

My rationale for the fifth pick:
Although he may not posess the most talent or best measureables of the defensive lineman on the board, in the fifth you take the player who you feel best fits your scheme and has the intangibles necessary to reach his full potential. The Steelers are showing strong interest in him and I believe he could be their guy at this point.

My rationale for the sixth pick:
Richardson is a guy who is intriguing but leaves a little bit to be desired in terms of his effort and preparation. This is the time of the draft where you can take a chance on a developmental prospect. I believe he can be a steal at this point if the Steelers can motivate him in the right way.
yea i loke sweed over hardy to, his size amazes me but sweed has always been productive

i'd be extremely disappointed if our draft looked like this.......the steelers have wasted to many drafts looking for that diamond in the ruff lineman on both sides of the ball....the results speak for themselves...
