The great thing about our team right now we don't have any major needs. Our Steelers will be reloading to defend the title. We could go so many ways with our first round pick. Nick Mangold would be a good pick at 32 if there. Also LenDale White if he falls to 32 would be the power back to fit our system. I liked White alot before the questions about his work ethic and the knocks on him for being out of shape. We don't need any Plax type of attitudes on our team. So I say pass on him. I don't think he will be there at 32 anyway.

I think safety will be look at as well in the first round. I love Donte Whitner from Ohio State. He can play all the secondary positions but will be a free safety for us. I also like Daniel Bullocks from Nebraska. That kid can ball and he will be a player. Plus Bullocks has a great work ethic and no questions about his character. Which are always important in the Steelers eyes.

Another player that could be there at 32 is Bobby Carpenter. Can play all the LB spots in a 3-4. Lets face it you can never have enough LB when running a 3-4 defense. Rodrique Wright the DT from Texas would be an interesting pick. Wright would switch to DE since we use the 3-4. Wright could be another Richard Seymour. But will he is the question. Some question his desire. So thats the knock on him and why he will there at 32 or even the second round.

Now for what I would like to see with our first round pick. Since we have 10 picks. I say try to trade up in the first. I don't see 10 draft picks making our roster anyway. If we do trade I would like to get one of the two top recievers in the draft.

I like Chad Jackson and Santonio Holmes alot. Jackson had an impressive combine. Plus has the height and speed to be a great deep threat for us. Holmes is under 6 foot. But this kid reminds me of Steve Smith from the Panthers. Holmes is explosive and very dangerous in the open field. Plus he can return punts.

Hey I will be thrilled no matter what the Steelers do. They should be able to get a good player no matter what in the first round.

I love Chukky,he's a ST monster...but I like Mangold as the starting center better than Chukky.

Carpenter COULD fall, since the Giants signed Arrington, and they had a bead on Carpenter. I think they'll still take him, though...

I`m thinking like you, that the Giants will jump all over him. But we`ll have to wait and see.

Why did we resigh Chucky, we don't need Mangold. I like Whitner or J. Allen, but if Lendale falls to us I think we take him. I also like Carpenter. We have a great problem we don't have to draft a certain position, just the best available player. I think we will trade our 2nd and our 4th pics to get a higher 2nd round pick we need to be in the top 10 or 15 in the second to get a good player , I think the drop off after that is huge.

If LenDale is available get him, if not then trade down for an extra 2nd or 3rd rounder. I would love to see the Steelers get Martin Nance from Miami (OH) in the late 2nd or 3rd rounds. He's tall (6'4), has amazing hands, and roomed with Big Ben in college.

Moss or White..those are my 2 thoughts... Both need positions that we have set starters in so they can learn as they go along at a nice pace.
