No. Drafting a RB with the first pick would be very stupid. The Steelers need to address the O-line!!! We have Willie, Kreider, Davenport, Carey Davis, and Gary Russell. How about a replacement for Faneca, or Willie Colon who allowed 12.5 sacks in 2007? How do you expect our franchise QB to continue to play with no pass protection? I will be very pissed if the Steelers waste their first rounder on a RB when we don't even need one.

hey rbryan i was just wondering, i see it alot, but what does IMO stand for? i would love stewart in the first hes big and powerful, and actually a very good return man then we could go, rachal in 2 and red bryant 3 and jordy nelson or jerome simpson in 4, that is more like a fantasy draft though, but i would love that

I think we should take the best player available as long as it's not a qb or te.

We don't even need one? How good was that running game after Willie got hurt? What if his injury had been in week 2, how do you think our ground game would have ranked? I am not suggesting we should take Stewart if several good linemen are there but I certainly wouldn't call it stupid.

So are first round linemen locks? Just because we draft a guy in the first round like Cherilus, does that automatically mean he'll be better than Collins in the second or Barton in the fourth for example?

Personally I hope our first three picks (in any order) are offensive tackle, defensive line (DE or DT) and cornerback.

No player is a lock, all the more reason to go OL or DL early and often in this draft. I have nothing against Stewart, I just don't think any RB, let alone one with a bad wheel is worth a first rounder. With the OL we have now you could reincarnate Walter Payton and he'd be a bust. It always starts up front, football 101.

Iv'e been thinking about this the last few days...this draft is gonna be scary...

I think the needs are on OL and DL, even at CB. Problem is, at 23, will there be anyone left of first round caliber to pick to fill these needs? I think its a waste of first round money to grab a player we need to fill a void, that we could easily have in rd. 2. Some of these o-linemen (Otha and Cherilus for example) could fall into rd.2 from what I see. Do you give them 1st rd. $$$ if they may not pan out, or worse yet, if they will be there later?

Is it a better option to take the best player available @ 23 even if it does not fit one of these major needs? I was dead set against and RB or WR for a while, but I'm starting to think if one of the top ones is still there @ 23, we should take a flyer on him.

If Walter Payton would be a bust, does that mean that Willie Parker is that much better than 'Sweetness'? He was leading the league in rushing before he got hurt.....
