Dookie will be back as long as he's innocent in his abuse case

Jeff Reed has been great this season, he'll definitely be back

Cedric hopefully gone

Anthony smith and ryan clark will be another offseason battle next year once again....

How many years is Batch signed for - I am a big fan but re-signing him may not be cheap

Starks may trick some other team to overpay him as a FA after lucking into playing LT on a slow track the last 2 games that covered up his lack of quickness. I look for a high draft choice starting at guard in 2008

Kreider is gone and Haynes is not coming back - may see a draft choice as 3rd down back (IMO Tomlin has seen enough of Davenport's lifestyle issues)

Unless Washington is restricted FA hard to see Wilson staying over Washington & Reid is gone

Smith starts over Clark unless he hits a ref during a playoff game and is serving out a suspension

I don't want to speculate or even think about next season. We still have a lot of football to be played this season and my focus is on this week's game only.

Carry on. Cheerio pip pip!

Default Re: Predict our depth chart for next season

i just want to predict our future, this week is a long week waiting up to the big game. i need something to take my mind off of it, in my free time all i do is watch espn, play backyard football, or hang out and watch football haha. my life at this age is revolving around football. so it is hard to keep my mind away from it.not trying to rush things, it is a way to find out what fans dont like about the team without straight up asking them.

Not a good depth chart.

Verron Haynes was cut for a reason, he cant stay healthy. He wont be a Steelers again, and Davenport has filled his 3rd down back role fine.

And I am not big onJavorskie Lane. He looks fatter everytime I see him.

I dont see the Steelers having 6 recievers on the depth chart. We have Heath Miller and Matt Spaeth who are capable recievers. Teams usually keep 6 recievers when they dont have any good recieving threats at TE. We do.

Max Starks at G? Are you kidding me? He is 6'8 and doesnt play with a mean streak. If you think Simmons sucks at G, Max Starks would make him look like an All Pro.

Simmons to guard wouldnt be much of an upgrade over Mahan. People here may hate Mahan, but he is better than Simmons at center. If we dont draft or sign a center in FA, Mahan stays put. I doubt the Steelers roll over on him that quickly.

2008 Steelers Depth Chart:

Italics indicated new Steelers

QB
Big Ben
Charlie Batch
Frenchie

HB
Fast Willie
Dookie
Russell
Possible FA signing like Derrick Ward or TJ Duckett

FB
Peyton Hillis: 4th round pick, Kreider leaves in FA

WR
Hines Ward
San Antonio
Cedric Wilson
Quincy Morgan Jr (Washington)
Willie Reid
It is VERY possible we could draft a WR, even on DAY 1, and possibly even round 1 depending on who is available. I dont think we should draft any WR in the first round not named Malcolm Kelly though. WR is our 2nd biggest need behind OL, IMO. We need to replace Washington and eventually Ward. I think the Steelers give Washington 1 more year to put it all together. He wont.

TE
Heath
Spaeth
(Tuman cut due to health issues)

OL

[b}LT[/b] Marvel Smith
[b}LG[/b]Kendall Simmons
[b}C[/b]Mahan
[b}RG[/b]Colon/Kemoeatu
[b}RT[/b]1st or 2nd round pick

People keep talking about us needing a G, but we need a T much more than we need a G. Quality guards can be found throughout the draft. The only 2 guards that warrant a 1st round pick this year are Eric Young, and Michael Oher, who I really want because he has experience at both.

Assuming Jake Long is gone:

Tackles (Top 3)
Sam Baker: A few month ago, it looked like he would be a top 10 pick, but with the emergence of other players, and his injury history, he may fall to us. He will still most likely go in the top 20, but there is a chance.
Michael Oher: Strong player, with never ending motor and a mean streak. Can play both G and T.
Chris Williams: See Oher. Pure tackle, same qualities.
Other possibilities include: Gosder Cherilus, Jeff Otah and Ryan Clady

Guards: (Top 3)
Duke Robinson: If he declares, he is the best guard in the draft.
Eric Young: Best guard in the draft if Robinson doesnt commit.
Roy Schuening: Alot like Faneca. More of a 2nd rounder.
Other possibilites: Andrew Crummey, Shannon Tevaga, Jordan Grims and Will Arnold.

C: Steve Justice is the best center in this draft by a country mile. If we dont draft him in round 2-3, its a huge drop off, and nothing better than what we already have.



Defense:

DE
Aaron Smith
Brett Keisel
Nick Eason
Possibly Ryan McBean or UDFA

[b]DT[//b]
Big Snack
Hokie Pokie
(This is another position I wouldnt mind addressing on the first day. Hampton needs someone that can come in and give him a breather.)

OLB:
Silverback
The Wood (Steelers let Haggans walk)
Timmons
Arnold Harrison
Possible late round pick or FA.

ILB:
Farrior
Foote
Timmons
(Another position that needs addressed, but its not crucial, Farrior is playing his best football and could play another 2 years after this at a high level. Foote is playing better. Timmons can move inside to Footes slot and play ILB. Still, dont be surprised if a pick is spent on this.)

CB
Ike
BMac
Townsy
Willie Gay
(Do NOT be surprised if we spend a first rounder on this. We are thin at CB after cutting Coke. Townsy is fundamentally sound, but his body is wearing down. BMac may actually get to start next year, but is a better nickleback than starter at this point)

S
Polamalu
Kill Switch/Ryan Clark will split time
Tyrone Carter

My DREAM Draft:
1. WR Malcolm Kelly
2. OT Chris Williams
3. C Steve Justice
4. FB Peyton Hillis
5. CB Terrance Wheatley
7. DT Carlton Powell

More realistic draft:
1. OT/OG Michael Oher
2. CB Dominique Rodgers Cromartie
3. WR.Jaison Williams
4 OG Will Arnold
5. FB Jehuu Caulcrick
7. Best available DLineman
