I don't mind not using our 1st rounder for a non-OL player... Chances are we can get pretty similar skill set players in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.

I don't think you all get it! Colbert hasn't found any talent outside of the first 3 rounds in how long???? Draft linemen early and don't worry later when these guys step in for the inferior talent that they will replace!

experience and chemistry is a HUGE part of it. Just ask James Harrison who was cut numerous times before he learned of to play in our defense. Im sick of every steeler fan bashing our line that just won a superbowl and has alotted probowl cailber running backs and QBs

That's not accurate at all. Look at the current lineup.

William Gay- 5th Rd
Willie Colon- 4th Rd
Chris Kemo- 6th Rd
Ike Taylor- 4th Rd
Brett Keisel- 7th Rd
Aaron Smith- 4th Rd
Deshea Townsend- 4th Rd

6 starters on the current super bowl winning roster were late round picks.

Not mention his undrafted free agent gems Parker and Harrison.

On to the topic at hand....

Almost every year the prognosticators having us taking a corner at #1.

And every year we don't. I don't see it happening this year either. Ike is locked down on one side, and Gay can compete with "The ageless wonder" Townsend for the other. Bryant gives us some depth. We also have Anthony Madison.

My guess is we pick up a CB with the 3rd or 4th pick.

That or we trade up for Vontae Davis or Malcolm Jenkins. There's a gap between these two guys and the rest of the CB's in this draft. I think these two are NFL ready, and might be worth the move. Otherwise we sit back and take a project in the later rounds and groom him.

I don't think the Steelers take a CB in the first round as long as Troy P. is the star DB on this defense.
