But I'm really hoping one of these three Chris Williams, Brandon Albert (with the intent at keeping him at OG) or Quentin Groves will be the pick....

I'm high on Chris Williams...I think he will a very solid NFL LT....I really like the idea of Albert replacing Faneca also...I just like the thought of teaming Groves with Woodley.....Those two would be great combo at OLB for the future...But I also believe you can never have enough weapons for your QB...So really in the first round the best player available should be the approach...

I really like the Moore pick but I really like Langford also...I wouldn't be against using a 2nd round pick on Langford....That is probably a reach but I don't think Langford would last until our pick in the 3rd round...

Tyrell Johnson sounds like a real interesting pick....His name doesn't ring a bell with me...But he sounds like real solid pick in round 4....I really like the Felton pick also...I really like your undrafted free agents also...Legursky is my favorite center in this draft and I really like the players you mentioned for the special teams...
I like Sweed also...but with Hardys past domestic problems..and the current domestic trend with our own players...you can just about mark him off our list.
Langford is also a favorite of mine..and I have seen him as high as the second round on some draft boards...he fits our system pretty well...I had wondered if the Steelers may grab a DT and a DE in this draft and have been trying to gather some inclination on the front office's part as to that possibility.
IF we go Albert in the 1st, I think Langford is a possibility in the second. Another player I am keeping my eye on is WR Paul Hubbard. I have seen him anywhere from 2nd to 5th round...but if he is there in the 4th, and we havnt taken a WR yet...he is a possibility.

Well LLT, it seems like the Steelers are looking into your boy Legursky.

http://www.herald-dispatch.com/sports/x1183938073

Representatives from the Pittsburgh Steelers, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars evaluated about a dozen former Thundering Herd players Friday. Most prominent among the professional football hopefuls were Morris and Legursky, who gradually have elevated their NFL stock in recent months.

And some more info from nfldraftscout.com
http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...php?pyid=56407

Check out the paragraph dated 3/4/08, Keilen Dykes who has been working out with Legursky gives him big props.

"Doug is a freak in the weight room," said Dykes a fellow 300-pounder who works out with Legursky at Huntington's High Intensity Training Center under local agent Dave Rich. "He puts up big numbers. He's a big power guy." Legursky established numerous weight room records during his four-year Thundering Herd career. Dykes literally has been more hands-on with Legursky's training. They work with/against each other in lineman drills, and like Douglas, Dykes simply chuckles at Legursky's blend of power and mobility. "Doug is running times faster than (defensive ends) did at the (NFL) Combine," Dykes said. "It's been crazy. I see what he's running, like a 4.77, and I'm like 'wow.'

Legursky is on some boards as early as the 5th round.

My "sleepers" of Benedict..Langford...Felton..and Legursky...have all made it onto the radar. I'm not surprised...all of them can be future starters in the NFL.

So do you think that it would be too much of a stretch to draft Langford with our 2nd round pick, LLT?

I am a big believer in "best player" over "needs base"...but I also think that it has to be best available within that teams scheme.

That being said, "Best Player" should be determined by production and not by measurables...(though a player with both is preferable) a player with only one year of solid production scares the crap out of me regardless of height/weight/speed.

So.........Langford has shown solid production and his measurables fit our system for a 3-4 DE. I can forsee a situation where is he the "best player" for our scheme in the second round.

Benedict falls under that same category. He rates a 2nd-3rd round grade..but could be the best player for our system over obvious zone blocking OT's like Baker.

The tragic death of Heath Benedict will shake up the draft board.



***********New update March 29 2008***********


1) OG/OT Branden Albert...6'7 317...Another player with very quick first step (1.71 at combine)...is said to be able to play LT...will spend this year competing for Fanecas LG slot and may be our LT of the future. We have to hope that either he or Otah is available at this point.
2) CB Tracy Porter....5'11 188... 4.37 speed, changes direction better than any CB in this draft...Good hands and great closing quickness...also is a premier return specialist. Would have liked to have gone with Justin King but he will probably be gone at this point.
3) WR Paul Hubbard...6'3 222...ran a 4.38 at his pro day...good leaping ability and tough enough to make catches over the middle...production hurt by knee injury, so much of what you will read on this guy is from 2006...had problems early on with dropping catches but could be a steal with proper coaching.
4) DE Brian Johnston...6'5 276...Powerful base..long arms and hands to fight off blockers..small school prospect that will benefit from pro weight program...weighed in at almost 280 at his pro-day but still ran a 4.66 and jumped a 35 inch vertical...very athletic.
5) FB/RB Jerome Felton... Height: 6'0 247...Smart and hard working ...scored 67 times as a short yardage specialist...read where someone counted 94 times in college that he couldnt be tackled with one man....has agility to take corner but would rather cover the ball and run you over. Steelers have been looking at FB & RB..Felton fits the bill with both.
6) B]FS Rocky Schwartz ...5'10 204 4.42 forty...25 reps on benchpress...led Houston's defense with 87 tackles. Not afraid of contact , depth at FS and will also play special teams



UDFA:
C Doug Legursky.....6'3 311...insurance at our most questionable position
CB Terrell Vinson....5'9 183... 4.43 40...5 interceptions and his 40 will get him noticed
ILB/OLB Marcus Richardson ....6'1 235... played for small Troy State 4.5 40...could provide depth at LB and play special teams.
DE Marcus Dixon.... 6'4 292....The other DE from Hampton...not as productive as Langford but has the size/strength to take a chance on.
OG Robert Gustavis.... 6'3 303 Good work ethic...blue collar worker...warrants a look
S Jamie Silva ...5'10 202....another player that would be a special teams demon....doesnt have the athleticism to start but would stick on a roster based on heart and work ethic.

I like this kid LLT. I had him penciled in the 6th round, has his stock risen that much in your opinion?

What do you make of the Eason signing? Do you think it shows that maybe they didn't like what they saw in the late round D-linemen they looked at? Powell & Dykes

I think the signing of Eason is strictly an insurance policy...

...I think Johnston's stock is on the rise with his pro-day knockout...Some teams may even want him to slim down and play OLB in a 3-4.

Default Re: LLT has taken over the draft!!!

Due to resent speculation that Otah and Albert may both be gone by pick #23...I'm going to try a 2 scenerio draft..so here goes.

Scenerio #1 (With top tier OL available in first round)

1) OG/OT Branden Albert
2) CB Tracy Porter
3) WR Paul Hubbard
4) DE Brian Johnston
5) FB/RB Jerome Felton
6) FS Rocky Schwartz


Scenerio #2. (Without top tier OL available in the first round)

1) WR Malcolm Kelly
2) DE Kendall Langford
3) FS/CB Charles Godfrey
4) OT/OG Mike McGlynn
5) FB/RB Jerome Felton
6) ILB J Leman

I like both of these drafts......I'm thinking Chris Williams and Brandon Albert both will be gone by 23...I don't want Otah....I think he is over-rated....with Williams and Albert gone...l wouldn't mind Kelly but I also like Groves.....

As for Johnston....If the Steelers draft him then I see him as an OLB....So Kelly would be the pick in the first instead of Groves...
