many players ive seen steelerfans want to draft for need (linebackers or hybrids), i have seen falling all the way to the patriots 2nd pick in mock drafts.
Timmons is dropping fast...as is Spencer.
Brown may very well be sitting there at 15...and I agree that value may dictate taking a first round DL...and getting an OLB in the second that isnt much different (value wise) than the ones graded as 1st rounders.
Though I've gone back and forth on Moses ....I think that he may be the real deal and wouldnt be dissapointed to see him at #15..other than him...wait until 2nd round

I think your right, you never know if we will have an opportunty to trade down until it happens, but if we can trade down and still get one of our top picks and get an extra pick it sounds good to me. We sure do need young blood. Let's hope we have a solid draft and alot of keepers.

P.S. - great analysis lost-tooth.

DE... 16
OLB...23
CB...14

that makes sense, especially if the DE is a tweener

if available top choices imo:
ginn jr. wr - ohio st
amobi okoye - dt - louisville (he is only 19 years old)
leon hall cb- michigan
jarvis moss - de/lb - florida

we have no glaring needs like 80% of teams. we should take best available and not have to reach for anyone with our top 2 picks or so

well if the head coach even plans on transitioning into a 4-3 in 5 years we have a ton of glaring needs. we cant put this off til next year or the year after. it all begins in 2 months. i could see the okoye or moss pick but not the other 2.

maybe not necasarily Leon Hall but I think that DB should be very high on our needs list and if something happens that the best DB in the draft is still available then I think that we should nab him... Now, who is that ? I m not certain... maybe the guy from Pitt.

I've got my personal favorites. But at this point,....ive got a hunch that we have got a real shot at Arkansas DE Jamaal Anderson The kid is monstrous with with a ton of upside.
Perhaps Coach Tomlin is thinking the same thing. (As he was present at Arkansas's Pro day)
Or perhaps he was scouting Chris Houston ? But then again wouldn't he have seen all that he needed to from him (Houston) at the combine ? Hmmmmm,......interesting.
Whatever the case,....i'm good as long as we don't clusterfook the pick with Moss, Moses or Spencer. LOL

With all due respect, haven't we invested alot in young (hopefully up and coming) CB's. If we pick a strong DE/LB or both early, might that not take a little pressure of the CB position? We definitely need to infuse our D w/ some talented young blood, but I hope we don't spend all of our early picks on D.
