Default Who do you guys WANT in April???

I haven't followed the prospects very closely this season, but in my eyes O-Line is our top need - with WR a fairly distant second. Apparently there are some solid WR prospects in the 2nd round area so that works out perfectly if true.

So, who do you guys want?? Otah, Williams, Albert?? I find it pretty apparent that O-Line isn't just my idea for our top need when last year's Faneca-including line gave up the 2nd most sacks in franchise history for a QB that had one of the best years as far as QB escapability goes. Did you guys see what Ben did back there as far as getting away from DE's/LB's last year?? I think he had me off my seat a dozen times with a "How in the living HELL did he get away from that one?!" Damn its a nice reality to think that Ben could be a Steeler for life!

So in ideal, realistic circumstances - Who do you guys want come mid-april???

As I have said I would want hometown boy Otah, but sadly it doesnt look like its going to happen.

We have some pressing needs at DE too. With the Hartwig signing I think that opens up the first round for us a little more. I think the first round will be the "best player on the board" situation. I would like to see either DE,OL or CB at #23. At some point maybe 3-5 we will be looking at a WR. Some Mocks I've seen recently still have Albert, and yet some think we will be taking either a CB or WR. It's all a shot in the dark if you ask me. All I have to say is I love this time of year.

I wanted Chris Williams from the start, but have given up on that hope.
The only 2 player I would like, that right now may be there at 23.

Brandon Albert: I think he would start for us need year, and improve our interior line greatly.
Quentin Groves: The OLB we tried to draft in the 1st round last year.

Other than that, I hope they can trade down and pick up a draft pick or 2.
I would really like to get Trevor Law in the 2nd round if he could pick up an early round 2 pick.

I'd like Albert. Play guard this year and possibly slide over to tackle is Marvel Smith isn't resigned. I wouldn't mind a defensive lineman or wide receiver. The more we play cover 2, the less we need top quality cb's, so unless an elite one falls, we should address the secondary later in the draft.

We have 2 solid choices in the draft this year:

start of defensively and end offensively-Trevor Laws notre dame DT
OR
start of offensively and end defensively-Branden Albert OG
