Default Re: LLT has taken over the draft!!!

Wow.

I had Mendenhall ranked #9 and Sweed ranked #28 on my draft sheets....Both players are great pickups...and with no legit OT's left at either of those positions, I have to congratulate the Steelers FO for not reaching for a player....but instead they got incredible value at both picks.

It will be interesting today to see how we fill our needs on the O-Line...DE...D-back...and LB.

(Charles Godfrey...Dre Moore are still on the board but should be taken in the third)

I with you totally DACEB. This has been the most fun over the last 12 months for me on this forum.

My hat is off to LLT and MOP who have made this ride a blast.

I am hoping for Dre Moore to fall LLT. I think he would be dynamite at RDE, more so than Langford who will realistically be the pick.

In the 4th I see an OT. Will the steelers take Carl Nicks with his legal issues. he would be awesome value but he does not have steeler character. I see Mike Mcglynn.

Would it be too much to ask for Shawn Crable to fall to the 5th (maybe). I think it will be the hardest position to fill without making a reach. Probably Bryan Smith in the 6th makes sense.

Back to rounds 1 & 2. Both totally awesome picks the way they unfolded. I think the steelers could not have chosen better for value at each spot.

I am suprised that Dan Connor, Cliff Avril, Early Doucet and Charles Godfrey are still sitting there. There were some amazing reaches today.

Cheers to another fine day in black and gold

I don't see much realistic about this draft so far Aussie. Our 1st round pick should have been taken 10 to 12 picks before he got to us, and our 2nd round pick shouldn't have even gotten into that round. I'm half expecting to hear we traded our 3 rounder off for Bob Sanders. I expect us to get a very usable OT today and the way it is going have one of the top 2 drafts with just 6 picks.

Wanted to wrap up this thread with a few thoughts.

This specific thread has been alot of fun for me this year. It took alot of time, research..referencing and cross-referencing...evaluating and reevaluating...but I have enjoyed the sharing of information and appreciate the fact that this forum and its members are without a doubt the most educated on the draft picks of 2008.

Thanks to all who helped find hidden gems...sleepers...and players that fit the "Steeler" mentality. We had no way of knowing that our FO would go in a completely different (and somewhat enjoyable) direction then we planned...but we should all take some satisfaction in seeing that alot of our "sleepers" crept up the boards and were taken pretty close to the rounds that we had predicted.

A big thumbs up to all who participated...it made this off-season fun and informative!!! (over 5,000 hits!!!)
