Default Who will be the Steelers first round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft?

Okay guys,who do you think will be our first round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft?

I think we will be selecing James Lauranitis-ILB,Ohio State.

This guy is a beast,plays with his heart,and is the prototype Steelers ILB.

Ok its way to early to predict this....But always fun to do so....Its never to early to talk about the draft.....

I would say Oline is going to be a target and the 2008 draft is loaded with Oline talent especially in the first round....Plus Max Starks,Kendall Simmons and Alan Faneca all will be free agents....I would love the Steelers to get Sam Baker the OT from USC but I don't think the Steelers will be picking in the 5-10 range and thats were Baker will be picked...

If were talking LBs then South Carolina Jasper Brinkley is guy to watch and is a bad ass....He is a ILB but also has the size to play OLB in a 3-4......I don't know how high LB will be on the list next year since we just drafted two in the first two rounds this past draft.....But Brinkley is a monster.....

i think like this previous draft, next years draft could say what we will be doing with our defense. if tomlin plans on goin 4-3 im thinking sederick ellis a DT from USC. maybe if we go OL def Sam Baker.

I love Lauranitis..and he would be a great fit for our defense...OT Jake Long from Michigan would be great, but to get him we would have to have a VERY bad season, so maybe Mississippi OT Michael Oher will be available later. With Hines getting older, maybe 6'5 Limas Sweed the WR from Texas may be an option.

Willie Parker is one of the best in the league but I have been high on Jorvorskie Lane the past few years from Texas A&M... 6'0 ft, 280 LB junior Running back. Not a first rounder, but if we could grab him later.... :O

I like Sweed. He's a big target and I really think he could be a good big Wr that we have been lacking sense the departure of Plax.

Without seeing how we do this season yet, I'd say definately O'line will be prority, but we will almost certainly still need depth at inside linebacker and D'line.
