As much as I like "Little Animal" LB is the last thing the Steelers need. If he fell to us in the second round I am all for it. But round 1 must be CB, OL or DL in my opinion.

I will be honest though a LB corp that features, Harrison, Timmons, Laurinaitis and Woodley in a year or two would be awsome.... And unstoppable.

I wouldn't mind having Laurinaitis I think he would be a good linebacker for us. He would fit right in with the other wonderfull linebackers we have.

no problem with taking a LB, just not at 32.

If someone like Larry English fell to 64, pounce on it like a tiger.

DL needs to be focused on much more than our LB's, I have high hopes for Fox and Davis.

But that's not the "Steeler Way". They'll go BPA and if he's there at 32, he's definitely BPA. Besides, Foote will be gone next year, and Farrior is no spring chicken, so there's a need there sooner rather than a lot later.

But he'll be gone by 20 or so anyway...

Rev do you think that Gholston poor rookie performance has anything to do with why Laurinaitis is dropping?

Laurinaitis's unspectacular performance in combine/workouts is why he is dropping, combined with the large number of hybrid DE/OLB who are considered to have more pure pass rushing skill.

Gholston may drop Laurinaitis's value in that he had a poor rookie season as a LB out of OSU, but as a player Gholston is much more comparable to a guy like Everette Brown or Robert Ayers.

Laurinaitis has a great shot of making it to us--there's no way he's gone at twenty and most mocks have him going in the second round. I think you could definitely make a case for him as BPA . . . between him and Beatty or Mack would be a tough choice.

No, because he'll be gone.

Laurinaitis is indeed dropping because of combine stuff. But combine #'s are only tools that help determine the decisions FO's make, and draft analysts DO NOT SELECT PLAYERS IN THE NFL DRAFT. In fact, the only real number I saw that was so negative was his 40, and, as I've said before, the day players start playing the game in shorts and t-shirts and running in straight lines is the day I'll pay attention to 40 times. He's football fast, and that's what counts...

Also, James' decsion to not play in the Sr. Bowl hurt him a little bit in the eyes of some, but, really, what was he going to prove? He's played for 4, and started for 3 in a program that has had an average ending rank of #5. He had and has nothing to prove.

I still think he's gone well before #32.

Gholston I think has little to do with it, either. It's premature to call Ghost a bust, because he was a DE on the Bucks and mostly asked to rush the QB. Just as it takes time for our LBers (who PLAYED LB in college) to adjust to the system, it will take him some time to adjust to standing up. I think he'll end up being a decent LB. But Lil Animal is something special. But he's also a Buckeye, which triggers knee-jerk hate...that doesn't help either.

Again, FO's aren't going to late hatred of a program blind them to true talent. That kind of ignorance is much better represented by MB posters...

By the by, another LB who's stock dropped because his 40 time was percieved as too slow was Chad Greenway. He ran a 4.74 and was supposed to drop in the draft because of it. He was picked 17th overall, and that "bust" had 115 tackles and 5.5 sacks last year.

Greenway is not as good as Laurinaitis.
