Default drafting Anthony Smith with our 2nd pick

of course this was a third round pick. we gave up our second to move up and get holmes. in retrospect was this an excellent trade? maybe we wouldve drafted smith with our 2nd pick, as it was anyways and we didnt have to possible settle for the 2nd or 3rd highest reated wr on our charts.

(i remember alot thinking darnell bing, jason allen or ko simpson would be our first if not second round pick.)

im gonna say it was a hell of a deal and could possibly make up for all the other picks that didnt make the team.

what do you think? was smith targeted with our 2nd all along (which made it easy to trade down to get him)

I don't know if Smith was targeted or we just got lucky in the way the players were plucked off the draft board, but either way I am extremely happy we got him! The way he hits, that hit on TJ (I think it was TJ) in the Bungles game on the deep pass was IMO the hit of the season! Anybody have a video of that hit? I am excited to see him and Troy in the secondary next year, the will wreak havoc on wide receivers!!!!

Steelers knew other teams did not grade him out well cause of his horrible 40 time. It was a gamble, but there were a lot of other safeties there to take even if Smith was gone.

actually the steelers indeed target anthony but they felt that a second round pick was too high mean joe greene whos actually a scout of ours actually had him as the 4th best safety in the draft period...deciding not to draft....harper, bing, bullocks, peprah, blue, etc all of whom had better careers than anthony werent better overall players at that position and also they traded down to get willie reid whom also alot of people targeted as a kick returner, and punt returner as fist reported by suzie kolbert during the draft.....

Here's a link to that hit

He's the same guy LeBeau & Cowher had to get on for his showboating after an interception the week before, wasn't he?

In any case, I didn't like the showboating, but that hit was BRUTAL, and he got up happy about it. :D

Ryan Clark impressed me with some hard hitting this season as well

Smith. He's a BEAUTY.

Kevin Colbert is showing what horses are permitted.

Willie Colon is now on the stage. And rookie already spent 15 yards proving that the NYC is represented in Steel Town. He may have f**ked up with that flag but perhaps the risk-reward ratio is a great long bet. I'm not saying Mean Joe. Not D. But would he?

Side Bar...Willie Reid is a factor I'd like to know more about because his preseason "glimpes" were not unlike Parker's going into a meaningless Bills game a few years back. Can this cat stay healthy?

This may be the most important draft in 'recent' Steeler history.

You know... you may be right. we may have 4 game changing players... Wow... what a draft that would be.

agreed, the 2006 draft will end up being a very good draft. Now, if we can follow that up in 2007 .......
