Default So, I participated in a live on-the-air mock draft held by a local radio show yesterd

Like the title says, I was in a mock draft yesterday put on by a local sports radio show here in the Detroit area. I was picked to be the Steelers GM, of course. ;)

It was only the first round and we couldn't trade picks. Then after the pick it was critiqued by the hosts and we were interviewed by the Lions insider who works for the station. It was actually a lot of fun.

Anyway, with the 15th pick in the draft I took....

OG Ben Grubbs


I wanted no part of Revis and Carriker was gone, so I took the top rated G in the draft.

The pick went over well with those involved in the draft and I didn't get bashed like I thought I would.

Kemo is a bull and Colon or Mahan can play Guard effectively...Stephenson was drafted for depth ....we will be okay

I should also note that I do think picking Grubbs at 15 would've been too high to draft him, but we couldn't make any trades. Ideally, I wanted the Steelers to trade down a few spots then take him.

However, he's now a Raven!!!

Agreed. And even if some people don't agree, whats the point worrying about Faneca?
It's not like we can go back in time and erase what happened. He could just as easily been lost all year to an injury. Whats done is done. Time to move on. Faneca is dead to me.

I wanted to dig this one up, because I got a little criticism on my pick of Grubbs during that draft.

How's that pick look now?

;)

i wouldn't have had a problem with grubbs, staley,blaylock, or ugoh at the 25th pick. i just thought 15 was too high for them, and obviously so did the other teams, because they all went late. i'm also on record of being against timmons at 15. i would have preffered any of the mentioned olinemen over timmons at 15.actually i would have taken poz before timmons at 15.....hopefully timmons will make me eat my words this year.
