I get the point but how many players have the Rooneys drafted that became stars...it dramatically out numbers the busts. All Im saying is we wont know about Tommins until he is given an opportunity to prove himself. Poz is a home town kid...there will always be people who wished he was a Steeler. Me included. But all Im saying is give Timmons a chance.

Also, while Poz was much more polished coming out of college, Timmons has much more upside.

Thank you, my thoughts exactly. Timmons could be starting on the Bills right now. Its like comparing the players or the teams they went to is like comparing apples to oranges.

Exactly, even though both could probably play inside or outside, Timmons is much more veratile because of his speed (sideline to sideline & coverage) and outside pass rushing (blitzing) ability. Add to that the fact that he hits like a truck.

Give it time this guy will prove his worth.

Do the names Joe Greene, Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, Franco Harris, Terry Bradshaw, Mel Blount, Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, Mike Webster, Dermontti Dawson or Rod Woodson mean anything to you? I could go on and on, but I think you get the point. That point being that the draft is a crapshoot, and the Rooneys (Dan in particular) have historically bet right more often than bet wrong.

In order to make some Steelers fans happy, I think the following players should be drafted or signed as rookie free agents next year.

Terrell Golden WR Sr. Penn State
Mark Rubin S Sr. Penn State
Tony Davis S Sr. Penn State
Anthony Morelli QB Sr. Penn State (should start right away)
Rodney Kinlaw TB Sr Penn State (will only fumble once every 1000 carries)
Brendan Perretta WR Sr. Penn State (Hine's who?)
Dan Connor ILB Sr. Penn State (makes up for Poz)
Tyrell Sales LB Sr. Penn State
Mike Lucian OL Sr. Penn State
Austin Hinton OG Sr. Penn State
Chris Mauriello LB Sr. Penn State
A.Q. Shipley C Sr. Penn State
Patrick Weber C Sr. Penn State
Greg Miskinis TE Sr. Penn State
Joe Hughes K Sr. Penn State
Chris Rogers DE Sr. Penn State

This should finally satisfy those who still think we would have made the Super Bowl if we would have just drafted Michael Robinson last year.

If you want dan Connor and Tony Davis I would gladly take them. They are good players. Connor could be better then Poz when its all said and done. And yeah your right. I wanted M-Rob last year too rather then have his waste away out in San Fran...but then again thats just me....I like to se potential in players that could help fill big gaping holes at positions and replace departed players...After all M-Rob is pretty much a younger stronger Radle El...but I must be a fool for wanting him on the team

Last time I recall this much controversy about passing on a local guy in the draft was passing up Antonio Bryant for Randel El.

I think that one turned out advantage Steelers !

However Saying that - Poz does seem like a player for sure while Timmons value is still to be determined.

Fence - yes I will sit on it for now.
