Default Best 1st round pick

Who could we draft that would come in and play right away as a starter on either offense or defense. Keep in mind that they would most likely be unseating a starter or filling a void, which IMO the only void we have is OLB. Also you can trade up or down but be realistic, we probably have no chance at C. Johnson, J. Thomas or A. Peterson.

So who would be the safest pick, so to say, that would come in and start and help us this season. My picks;

1. G. Adams, IMO he could play at OLB and DE (pass downs) from day 1
2. A. Carriker, If Keisel moves to OLB
3. D. Revis, Would start in Nickel and Dime packages
4. L. Brown, would have to unseat either Smith or Starks

Let me know what you think!

Gaines Adams of course but he will be long gone by the time the Steelers pick in the first round. Not unless the Steelers unload Faneca and their first round pick to move up to draft Adams.

LLT you really think Moss even though he was busted for weed in the past? The Steelers usually avoid those type of players. But Moss would fill a need.

I'm not going to write Moss off until I see how Tomlin drafts...I am also concerened about the fact that he only could manage 16 reps at 225 lbs during the combine.....My choice is still Brown in the first...and Moses in the second....Moses will be a better OLB in my opinion

I won't rule out Adams just yet. I still think it's possible he falls or we trade up. I think this could be one of those years that we go and grab the player we want ala Polamalu.

Adams might not fit the general DE mold so some teams might shy away, and it is'nt that far a drop to 15.

I dont think a corner is big on our list...I think that Taylor will be fine this year..... and McFadden will start on the other side.......Townsend is still good enough to play and make a few plays........
