I'm a HUGE Lions fan, so I'd love to see us take King in the 2nd, but everything I've seen projects him in the 25-35 range, so he'll be long gone before he gets to us. We'd have to take him in the 1st which may be a little bit of a stretch (although not much of one, I'll give you that).

King is overrated. I remember him constantly getting beat by James Hardy and Ohio State's receivers. He is a good returner, but as a corner IMO he sucks.

If there is not a top 2 corner left for the steelers at 23rd, I dont want them to reach here and get a no.3 or 4 corner myself when there is probably a top tier DE or NT left there or my favorite pick either OT Williams or OG Albert with the signing of Hartwig and a drafting of one of these 2 talents the steelers are set for a few years in my opinion.

Yeah, what do most of the pundits have him as??? The 7th or 8th best CB prospect??? McFaddens year there was a run on CB and I think he was the 11th off the board in the 2nd round so this might happen. but everybody says there is such depth at DE, DT and OT, so I think the top 8th corner should be there by the 2nd round.....he or Tracy Porter might still be there.

If we can draft Branden Albert, Justin King, and Frank Okam in the same draft i think we can say we had a big offseason this year.

If albert is gone in the first when we pick why not take a chance on talib from kansas.

Frank Okam looked like he ate his way to UFA status at the combine. Any word on if he hit the Gym before his pro day ??? Or did he go straight to Krispy Kreme??

BTW, I would rather see a DE instead of a NT drafted.

most definitely. We already have a good backup NT in Hoke

We need a DE to compete with Keisel and for good depth
