I watched probably two WVU games over the course of the year. I did'nt focus on any one player.

I do know they ranked in the top 10 in both total and scoring defense, and the top 20 in rush D, pass D and sacks.

It obviously sounds like you've payed closer attention than I have. Do you have reason to believe Dykes can't play DE for us in the 3-4. He's definetely got the size and it sounds like he knows the techniques.

Williams can play right away and only gave up 2 sacks in his college career.....Otah is more raw and might take a few years to be NFL ready....Steelers need help for 08....Thats why I would take Chris Williams....He is a legit pass protecting LT.....He needs to work on his run blocking and some question if he has a mean streak...But at the Senior Bowl in got into some fights in practice showing that he could have that mean streak....

Otah has more upside no doubt and I won't complain if he is drafted....But I don't expect him to contribute right away.....

Oher is returning to Ole Miss for his Senior season....make that pick OT-Williams & I love your draft....I wasnt sure if Pollack was capable of stopping the AFC North NT's, but after the Senior bowl he showed that he is much stronger than people thought and a leigitimate run-blocker....helped Arizona average 137.0 yards on the ground and 255 yards in the air. Pollack as gone from third to first on my center wish list.

Good draft!

This is my last Steelers mock draft. It was made a week or so ago and I think this is " how I think I would like things to go"

1 OT Gosder Cherilus 6' 7" 315 lbs Boston College
2 OG Roy Schuening 6' 4" 318 lbs Oregon State
3 DE/DT DeMario Pressley 6' 3" 298 lbs N.C. State
4 C John Sullivan 6' 3" 305 lbs Notre Dame
5 MLB Phillip Wheeler 6' 2" 235 lbs G.A. Tech
7 RB Cory Boyd 6' 218 lbs South Carolina

The Steelers must get some Line Help on both offense and defense, so this may change soon

Pollack really is on the move up the boards. If we want him it will be in the second and I think he will already be gone when it is our turn.

The rarity of 3-4 DE's will see Langford climb into the 3rd. A lot of fans from other teams are also talking about this player. His stock will soar with a good combine workout.

Wheeler may not last that long, but the Steelers would be smart to get a MLB somewhere early I think this draft. Yeah, I love Cherilus, this guy looked great at the senior bowl in game and practice against some of the best DE's and NT's. Of course Williams is also a nice selection here, but I really dont expect him to be here this late.
