I see Shamarko being groomed to take over the SS spot in 2015.

I see a lot of Shamarko as the NB (three safeties on the field).

I see Will Allen starting the year as the FS, but a rookie taking over by Halloween.

2014:
SS: Troy
FS: Allen... then rookie

2015:
SS: Shamarko
FS: continued form 2014

Welcome to the board! Nice avatar!

I think we'll be OK with Troy, Shark, Golden, re-sign Will Allen and draft a rookie to learn while playing ST.

Troy and Allen start next year with plenty of playing time for Shark, IMHO.

I read something about Ike possibly moving to safety. But I think Troy and Shamarko will more than likely be the duo, and I fully expect them to draft a safety like Clinton-Dix, Ed Reynolds, or Deone Bucannon.

Shamarko is not starting at FS. He'll get significant time off the bench in nickel and dime packages and to spell Troy but they are not going to throw him into Clark's role when he would just completely switch responsibilities again in 2015.

There are 3 possibilities, the way I see it:

1. Robert Golden or, if resigned, Will Allen. This is the most likely and would obviously be a stop-gap temporary move while young talent develops.

2. Ike Taylor. Yes he lacks the ball skills but he's already said he had serious discussions with the coaches about this move. This only happens if a CB is drafted in the first two rounds who can contribute immediately, where Cortez and Gay start at corner and the rookie gets nickel time.

3. Rookie. Doesn't seem likely to me at all. Only way is if Clinton-Dix is our first pick and explodes onto the scene, but even he seems like more of a developmental prospect at safety with great tools than an Eric Berry or Earl Thomas who's going to come in and be a Pro Bowler immediately.

Option 1 seems the most likely with the conservative nature of the Steelers but with the way a lot of mock drafts are falling into place and the CB talent we'll have to choose from early in May, I really wouldn't be too surprised to see Ike Taylor at FS next fall.

Shamarko isn't a FS.

HaHa or Reynolds. Pick your poison - CB in the first with FS in the second, or FS in the first and CB in the second. Essentially, it's either...

1. Ha'Sean
2. Watkins

Or...

1. Gilbert / Dennard
2. Reynolds.

Can't go wrong with those players but ill shake it up a bit with guys we don't talk to much about....

1. Calvin Pryor.... To high maybe/probably/maybe not, I think he will raise up draft broads in the coming months......big hitter can cover back half while shark swarms the box and middle part of field......those two would resemble a Clark Troy combo the most I believe

2. stanley jean baptiste... Big corner..... I like

Pryor would be a reach in first so a trade back would be the way to go with him.

Really starting to like baptiste in second

SJ-B is a hell'uva player. I'd just go with Gilbert and Dennard in the first round as they're more polished right now with higher upside than SJ-B.

I'm not a huge fan of Pryor and not as high on him as most. He plays too much like Ryan Clark and for a secondary that struggled generating turnovers, a Clark-type player might not be the best choice to play alongside Shamarko.

SJ-B in the second round would be a great pick. HaHa and SJ-B would add some grit and size to our secondary and both could start immediately. Plug SJ-B into our Nickle and let HaHa roam around our secondary.

I hear this a lot from posters about Thomas...
Can you explain why Thomas couldn't play FS?
