Default For the "Football" people amongst the Fam,......(no newly accuired Ben Groupie's

Just for the sake of conversation. Say we land a top ten pick,.....and your in Colbert's position. Do you target,....

a): Rb Adrian Peterson

B): Qb Troy Smith (as with Rivers to Brees) Worst case scenario,...it's greatly needed MOTIVATION for Ben.

C): LB Paul Posluszny

d): WR Calvin Johnson

or

E): Attempt to trade the pick to K.C for L.J (Trent Green's a little "long in the tooth",.....perhaps they'd be interested in aquiring Brady Quinn ?)

Opinions Please ?

Steelers primary needs are OL, RB, and LB.

I believe Ben just needs a full offseason to heal and there is no need to draft a QB.

I don't really want to have a Top 10 pick, but if we did have one, I would take DE Gaines Adams. I'm a fan of Keisel, but I don't think he's starter material. He's more suited as a guy that can come in when someone is tired & get the job done consistantly. I think the WR's are fine, they're just young & still developing. I think that we could get a RB in the 2nd round, and he'd be sufficient. I think LB is fine, Farrior still has 2-3 good more years in him. The O-Line is alright IMO, they just need to get things together.

I say C. Pos would fit right in with Blitzburgh.

There's no need to draft a QB unless we lose Batch. Guys like Maddox needed a fire lit under there ass....but Ben is the undisputed starting QB for the Steelers for a long time.

Offensive line is definately an area of need. They're definately struggling right now.

with our secondary I am very surprised that you did not mention any d-backs.

if we draft top 5 (i hope not): Joe Thomas, OT Wisconsin
around 10-15th: Jake Long, OT Michigan

need fresh new meat in that o-line very badly. if not available, a cb will be needed too: Zack Bowman, CB Nebraska, or Leon Hall, CB Michigan.

If you've posted here for a reasonable amount of time LoveJoy,....you know exactly how i feel in regards to our secondary outside of Troy. (LOL) However,....i don't think any of the corners in this year's crop warrant "top ten" value. (Though they're are some good prospect's like Daymeion Hughes out of Cal.)
S Laron Landry out of Lsu is a blue chip kid,.....but he's more of "Box" safety. (and i think Anthony Smith could very well be the physical Ballhawk we need at F/S.)
Though i am in Favor of picking up Sabby Piscitelli out of Oregon State later in the Draft to back up Smith. And let Clark backup Troy.
