Well, any chance we may have had of getting either Mike Oher or Jeff Otah is probably shot now. Oher returned for his senior year at Ole Miss. That means whoever would have taken him will probably get Otah.. Bad news for the Steelers.

I hope we don't pick two OT in the first three rounds, unless we trade down and get an extra pick.

I would personally like to see;
DE 1st round
DB 2nd round
OT 3rd round

I posted something similar to what you are saying in another thread:

Quote:
I am becoming more and more inclined to think that we have to upgrade the line in the first three picks...but not at the expense of passing on a blue chip prospect in the first found to "reach" for a player that will be on the board later. I would much rather see us trade down and pick up and extra pick.

For instance...if I see no Tackles in this draft that warrant a first round consideration at #23... we have two options if we truly want the "best" Tackle remaining in this draft and it looks like he is an early second round prospect...
1) Trade to the bottom of the 1st or out of the first all together, picking up the Tackle at the new slot while picking up a couple of picks.
2) Pick up the best player at #23 (given our needs at all positions) and then trade up in the second to pick up the Tackle we want while giving up some late picks (which we seem to waste anyway)

I personally would not be hurt by scenerio #2.... if we can get a DE or CB stud in the first..and still address the line in the next two rounds I would be happy
I DO think we may have to address OG and OT in the first 3 or 4 rounds...but it lookds like you and I are in agreement about not reaching for a player in the 1st...but at least consider trading down for more picks

just a question your drafting a DE/DT tweener who can play in a 4-3 and a 3-4 right?

or strictly a 4-3 DE?

Yes, DE/DT. We need someone to come in and spell our 1st team guys. Hopefully someone that can play at or close to the same level of Keisel, with the potential to grow.

I would like to see Balmer in the 1st and Langford in the 4th.

This could be a good year to trade down, but it won't happen. Looking back to last year, we could have an extra pick in this years first round if we had traded our spot to Clev. last year.

We now know that they are looking to move Timmons inside. We could have traded our 1st round pick last year for Clev.'s 1st this year and Clev.'s 2nd last year (Dallas made the move). We could have easily taken the Jets 2nd round pick (Harris ILB) and still picked up Woodley.

Colbert has not shown he is savvy enough to make deals on draft day. We could be sitting pretty right now.
