Default mock draft....again

i know you guys read these all the time but i think that draft threads are cool because it can sometimes bring up a guy that has never been mentioned before.

steelers draft 2008

1. jeff otah-pitt-OT

2. ray rice(complement to willie)-RB-rutgers

3. steve justice-wake forest-center/guard

4.Josh Johnson-QB-San Diego-successor of charlie batch-http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=166992
this guy has some greats stats, even for Division 2 football.

5. Adrian Arrington-Michigan-WR, tall receiver who was overshadowed by Mario Manningham.

6. Corey Lynch-Safety-Appalachian State-dont know a lot about him but i have heard his name a lot lately.

7. Andrew Crummey-Guard-Maryland

we drafted omar jacobs in the 4th, he just coldnt get the playbook down. i dont see a problem with drafting a quarterback as long as it isnt in the first 3 rounds, we will have to draft one sooner or later.

My guess is that Charlie Batch's replacement (if it even comes to that) is starting or pushing for a starting job on some team right now. No need to draft a rook when you can pick up a former starter to step in as #2. Just wait there are a few of these guys out there (Grossman, Huard, Greise, etc) who will be willing to join the Steelers as a back up because they know they are not going to start anywhere else. The price will be right for us to pick up a good value.

Sorry 19Ward86, I just cant understand taking a QB that early either ole' buddy. Maybe a 7th rounder but nothing more than that unless Josh David Booty is still available in the 4th or 5th and I dont see that happening. C Steve Justice might not be a bad pick at all if he is still there that late, but I really dont see that happening either. I just think that our O Line must get more help through the draft unless they are gonna sign a bigtime Center or a Guard or a L Offensive Tackle. If we could sign a bigtime OT in FA then I could see us drafting someone like WR Early Deucet from LSU, then a OG in the 2nd or trade up in the 3rd and grab one.

As long as it isn't Grossman! I'd take Greise in a second. He was a winner in Denver so why couldn't he be a dependable backup here?

No one else said anything but we only have 6 picks:
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th and 6th. 7th is gone due to Allen Rossum.
Other than that, take out Rice and Johnson, add a gaurd and I like all the other guys.

I'd like to see someone drafted for the D line.

I like the center pick in the third. I think Pollack goes in the second so Justice is possible in the third.

I could live with the first 3 picks.
