Default Re: What about OL outside of Round 1?

First of all, how many sacks did we give up last year? We must have pass blockers as well folks. If we dont protect the 10million dollar man we wont be talking play-offs this year. I think that the Steelers should be jumping for joy if OG Roy Schuening or Chilo Richal is left in the 2nd round, but I dont think either one will be.

We upgraded at Center and the OL is in its 2nd year under the new offense. Also, Ben is not without blame for some of those sacks.....Sorry. We could use additional O-Linemen in here to help this team. But to say that we need 3 is ridiculous. After the top 6 OT's and top 2 OG's, IMO, there are no upgades over what we already have.

And if the Steelers feel comfortable with going into the season with whom we have as the starting line, then so do I.

Schwartz is really big and really slow footed. He is substantially behind Kirk Barton who I think is maybe a 4th round OT prospect.

Schwartz is more like a 5th or 6th round guy that will have to play guard, because he will just be a matador for speed rushers as an OT.

First of all....it was a lot of sacks. That's why I hope Scheuning is gone. He is a guy that is tough, strong, but not good in space and doesnt have quick feet. He's a smaller, slower version of Kemoateu and I really dont understand the fascination with him other than the fact he is ranked in the top 5 OG lists by the draftniks.

Scheuning is a liability in pass protection, slow to trap or get to LB's at the second level. NFL.com compares him to Jahari Evans of the Saints.....who the hell is Jahari Evans???? He fits with a zone block team where he can take one step laterally and block the guy in front of him......thats all that zone blocking is.

Albert, Zuttah, Rachal are all better guards and considering we have Simmons, Colon, Kemoateu, Mahan, Hartwig, that all play inside, we dont need a high pick on a guard.

Agreed, completely.

Guess I was wrong here. Barton and Schwartz went in the 7th....not even the 4th.

Scheuing was just as I thought.....not up to the hype.

Would have liked Collins, but happy we got Hills at least.
