Get it through your head people the skill positions on O are not our weak spots. I'm sure everyone wants us to draft someone "high-profile" so they can have another jersey to buy, but we need O-line, CB, LB (not in any specific order)



Stillers your are correct that we have other needs that take precedence over the position (WR). However,.....what i think some of us are trying to say is that,.... you do not pass on a player like Calvin Johnson if your are in the position to "pull the trigger" so to speak.

If Johnson is still available the Steelers would be nuts to pass him up.. but it Will Not Happen, so dont worry about it.. the only way the Steelers have a chance to get him is to trade up and I dont really C them doing that ...

There is only one reason to take Johnson, and that is to trade him. No other viable reason.

I think he will turn out to be a great player. He has a great personality unlike williams and burress not like that matters but he is going to be a very solid player in the NFL

Your right on both accounts. I agree with Stillers on our needs. However, if someone of that talent fell to us, we would be foolish not to take him and then try to build through FA.

After all, Hines is now in his 3rd year of the NEW contract. He only has a few more years in the NFL. We need to start thinking about picking another receiver over the next couple years to groom with Holmes, so that we can have a solid one-two-punch.. maybe even 3 with our TE.

Man you are on the money Preacher...there are a few players that we would be very foolish to pass on if they fell to us..regardless of our needs:

Thomas...Johnson....Peterson...Adams....

not only should the steelers draft him if hell were to freeze over and he'd be there, but the 14 gm/coaches that passed on him should be fired on the spot for letting him fall to number 15

and for the comments that the raiders are gonna draft him and ruin him. i don't think they will draft him however he's the type of player that will make everyone better, they won't ruin him, he'd make the raiders respectable, that's how great this dude is gonna be, because of what others said he's randy moss/t.o. without the headaches and baggage. his work ethic and his god given talent is gonna take him far and any team he is on is already at least 5-7 games better than they were last year
