Default Updated Mock Draft

I have done alot of thinking and mind changing and all. The guy that I have wanted from day 1 in Gosder Cherilus from Boston College to play OT for us for the next 10 plus years. But this young man is more suited for the ROT position and we really need a stud LOT player. If Chris Williams is still there at 23rd I wouldnt mind at all the steelers selecting him. This is the way I would love for our draft to look like at the end of day.
1. Chris Williams 6'6" 315 lbs Vanderbilt
Big Left OT that we really need
2. OG Roy Schuening 6'3" 306 lbs Oregon St
Our 2nd biggest need
3. DE Red Bryant 6'4" 318 lbs Texas A&M
The guy has awesome atheleticsm and can stop the run tenaciously. Just read his bio at nfldraftcountdown.com
4. WR Earl Bennett 6'0 210 lbs Vanderbilt
This young man just makes plays
5. S Marcus Griffin 5'10" 200 lbs Texas
Big hitter with decent cover skills
6. C Doug Legursky 6'3" 311 lbs Marshall
Good run blocker to give us some depth or practice squad help

I love Quinten Groves, and apparently so does Tomlin as he was at Auburns pro day. I highly doubt however that he will be available to us in the 2nd, nevermind the 3rd.

The Gods would truly be wearing B&G if two years in a row a stud like that fell to us in the 2nd.

Matt Forte- RB (Tulane, 6?2? 222 4.46) - In my opinion maybe the most intriguing prospect in this draft. Forte, who was solid in ?06, burst onto the scene in 2007 with 5 200 yard games, and 2 300 yard games, to finish with an astonishing 2,127 yards on 361 carries (5.9 ypc). Forte combines great size and surprising speed in one underrated package. Played against some sub par competition, but at the same time was a man among boys in those games, with a not so good supporting cast around him. The Green Wave needed to keep handing the ball off to Forte because they had no one else, and Forte never broke down and stayed healthy all year. Had 16 carries for 73 yards against LSU in his most marquee match up in ?07. Shows good quickness and strength at contact, and always falls forward on the way down. Has a knack for the end zone with 39 career touchdowns, 23 in 2007. Can also catch the ball out of the backfield as shown with his 32 receptions in 2007 and 103 career catches. Forte is an every down back who I look for to have a very good rookie season. Would be a good fit in Carolina, who needs to find a compliment to DeAngelo Williams, and in Seattle, who needs to find a replacement for the aged Shaun Alexander. Look for him in the second to third round.

Earl Bennett- WR (Vanderbilt, 6?1? 209 4.48) - Quick name the all-time SEC leader in receptions. With all of the great players that have come out of the SEC over the years it may come as some surprise that it is Bennett. With 236 career receptions over 3 years, Bennett has shown that he can play against the best at a high level. He is being downgraded a bit because he?s being thrown in the possession receiver category, but his 40 yard dash time and shuttle time suggest just the opposite. Never mind that he has shown breakaway speed and strength for 3 years in the SEC, he posted one of the best 40 times at the Combine this season. Also factor in that he was repeatedly double teamed over the last 2 years, simply because there was no one else on Vandy to garner that type of attention, and his numbers are that much more impressive. He has shown that he can get separation at the line of scrimmage, has great hands, and the ability to break a long one at any time, or point on the field. Really should be a first round pick, but with that possession receiver stigma he will fall to the second round, and be a steal to the team who drafts him. On my board he?s the third best receiver in this draft behind Michigan?s Manningham and Oklahoma?s Malcolm Kelly.

i would like to see albert to with his size and athleticism but is he a 1st round guy. im still not convinced he is yet. and i wouldnt rule out the steelers drafting and RB because i believe that moore was just signed for KR/PR.
