Default Steelers select Rashard Mendenhall with 23rd pick

Wow, this has to be the shocker of the draft, all top linemen gone and Mendenhall falls to us. I am a bit torn on this pick, I really like Mendenhall but think we could have used a tall WR. Any thoughts?

Well, that pretty much blew me away. Wasn't expecting a RB at all, to tell you the truth. But if he turns out to be what we hope for, this could FINALLY help solve the problems *coughpowergamecough* we've had in the backfield since Bettis retired.

Wonder if this means Najeh is on his way out the door for good ...

I think it was a good pick......Possibly the best running back in the draft?
Also.......there was not an OL worth a first round pick........Im sure we looked to trade down and tehre was no one willing

#3 WRs are a dime a dozen. We can probably sign an OK one as a free agent just as easily. Unless maybe Manningham continues to fall? He could turn out to be a steal too. Who knows.

Will all the O-Linemen drafted already, it would have been a HUGE mistake to take a lineman -- steelers got possibly the best RB in the draft -- a lot like getting Holmes 2 years ago - getting the best guy avail

I love the pick. He's young and hasn't had a ton of mileage. I had Stewart maybe falling, but I never dreamed Mendenhall would fall that far.

I expect Hardy to be the #2 pick now. He should definitely be there now since no one has even touched WR's yet.
