Default Re: Who do you want on day 2 of the draft?

It seems most on here are convinced they'll take a CB in the 2nd, but I don't necessarilly think that will be the case. I hope that Dowling falls to pick 62 and that Colbert takes him, but I don't believe he'll be willing to trade up to take him. He's been saying all along how deep this draft is; in other words, teams should be able to wait without much of a drop-off. I think the Steelers want as many picks as possible in this draft.

They have a lot of different positions in which they could address with their 2nd and 3rd round picks. They could go NT, OG, OT, or CB.

Ideally I want Dowling, but I doubt he'll fall to 62; in fact, I don't even think the other Texas CB will fall to the Steelers. They may be forced to take on of their other needed positions in the 2nd round. I personally do not think OT is that much of a concern, so I'd like them to get a guard with the second pick. I wonder if Rodney Hudson will fall a few spots so the Steelers could get him? That would be excellent. He's a pretty well rounded player who could potentially start immediatly at RG.

I also wouldn't mind getting Kenrick Ellis at the back of the second to learn from and eventually replace the Big Snack. They're some big shoes to fill, but at 6-5 345, Ellis may not have too much trouble filling them.

In the third, I'd like to get Kendall Hunter RB OkSU. The Steelers may need a replacement for Mewelde Moore, and they definitely need depth at RB. Hunter at 5-7, 200 is almost a Daren Sproles clone - mini RB's are all the rage these days! He would be a perfect third down back. He would be an excelent candidate to catch screens out of the back field ( if Arians ever wises up), and this pick would add depth to a dangerously thin RB position.

Ugh totally what I was afraid of with the weak CB's

It looks there are only 3 CB's that are even worthy of a 2-3 round pick after that, pull out your shotguns because it's a huge crapshoot.

Looks like it will be OL (or maybe another linebacker ; )

I've seen other lists but this is pretty good average of all of them:

Brandon Burton is the best option for us at corner. Williams is big waste because he won't be able to play the corner spot, he will be a safety. I have no idea why everyone is so high on Dowling either...no matter none of them will be there. Burton is NFL ready and is a quick learner.

Third, Andrew Jackson OL Fresno State. He is a big guy who could make a huge impact with some more muscle on his lower body.

Burton didn't look to great getting steamrolled by Boise State.

I think it will be OL and other positions. Huge drop off once Harris gets selected. Maybe we'll pick up a few scrubs that can't play in the 5th or so.

It looks like we dip into FA for CB's? The Steelers don't seem to be too worried about our inability to cover a pillow so maybe they have 2-3 CB's lined up in FA?

Doesn't look good for DB help though.

We are naked at CB.

Cry Brady, the metro-sexual, will destroy us and so will any other decent QB with a spread offense. Well maybe there won't be a season this year so I won't have to watch us being destroyed.

if we fix our o-line we can win with our offense imo. ben can't win a shootout if he's getting sacked 8 times a game.

honestly i don't know if there's any good cb's left, all the 1st year starter ready ones have been taken. they will probably pick some talented project cb's a la butler in the later rounds

With the super genius Air Head Arians (who so such a brilliant OC we signed him to only one year) running it I don't think so. In any case I HATE HATE HATE shootout football. Oh well maybe there will be a nice long strike.

well true i rather not be involved in shootouts, but our defense still is good. Not great, but good. That to go with a good offense would make us a contender. Despite arians ben is very difficult to stop if he has protection. if we can build a solid o-line we will have another championship team, bank on it.
