Perfect spot for Donald (R2), but a little early for Skov (R3).

Wrong. They were 14th. Not checked the rest.

Kovacevic: Tomlin has tough tasks to tackle

By Dejan Kovacevic
Published: Monday, Dec. 30, 2013

• What about defense?

Tomlin brushed off my question suggesting the Steelers have more work to do building up the defense than the offense — “The numbers don't support that” — but I'll stand by it.

Go across the Steelers' starting 11 on offense, and you're looking at the imminent loss of Emmanuel Sanders as the only gaping hole, especially after Tomlin threw support Monday behind Kelvin Beachum at left tackle. Add one impact receiver, and it's plenty enough to win.

As burgeoning guard David DeCastro told me Monday, “We're only just getting started with where this offense can go.”

But man, with the defense, it's hard to know where to start: If Ryan Clark goes, who will replace him? Shamarko Thomas? Is Ike Taylor's push for safety to be taken seriously or mostly dismissed, as Tomlin seemed to do Monday? Can Steve McLendon really play nose tackle in a 3-4? If not, how about end? Can Jason Worilds stay healthy long enough to make you forget LaMarr Woodley? Will anyone offer a little help for Lawrence Timmons? More Larry Foote at age 34? Let Ziggy Hood walk?

And, wow, what if Troy Polamalu passes on $10.9 million and retires?

Ask me, and all other factors being equal, I'm taking an inside linebacker or corner with that 15th pick in the draft.

I don't see Benjamin falling that far down. I feel like he'll be picked up at the very latest, at the end of the first round by the Seahawks.

I would really love to see Donald go to the Steelers. This kid is a complete beast. He does it despite his height and size. I think that's really a testament to his work ethic and technique.

I agree with you on Benjamin.

as for Donald, he will be a prototypical 4-3 under tackle in the NFL. problem is, we don't play a 4-3 defense...

I agree. I only see him succeeding as a 4-3 tackle. He could be an absolute monster in the 4-3 on the inside, but he's too undersized to play either NT or DE in the 3-4, where his job is much more focused on eating up blocks and double teams than actually rushing the passer. And he's too big to be a 3-4 OLB. He'll be a monster if utilized correctly in the correct scheme and average if used as anything he just isn't.

I'm all for the guy if we randomly decide to switch to the 4-3 and roll out a front 7 of Woodley-Heyward-Donald-Worilds and Jones-Timmons-Williams/Spence, but that probably isn't happening. Although that front 7 I just wrote out kind of looks a lot better to me than our current front 7...

James C Wexell ‏@jimwexell:

Round 3 -- Stanford ILB Shayne Skov will probably time in the Brandon Spikes 5.0 zone, and that may allow him to last till comp pick.
