I know alot of folks are down on Cherilus because he's projected as only a RT. I believe this kid will be a hell of a RT. IMO, he could start day one and perform better than Starks and Colon the past two seasons. Who knows he could end up being a LT, Otah is projected higher based on potential.

This April I want to know the long term plans for Max Starks. If they are going to keep him and if they are going to keep him is he going to be the LT or RT for the next 3 - 4 years. If they are not going to keep him than tell me in April. I also want to know the status of Marvel Smiths back. I cannot name one starter on the current O line who projects to still be there for sure and certain in 3 - 4 years time.

Then I can stop all this back and forward debating with myself about who we should pick in the first.

Because of these questions I am sitting on the fence and will settle for Brandon Albert. Great guard who projects to be an equally as good tackle. He wont start in 2008 but in 2009 he will be a beast. This is the year to start investing in O line for a return to a stud quality line.

And April 2009 I want a beast of a center (Luigs or Mack will do)

why? the steelers are not in need of a WR in the first round. hartwig does not solve the O-line problems. the steelers can't keep neglecting the O-line every draft. the don't have a single star player on the O-line.

starks - average to poor. seems to play better at LT than RT
simmons - average to poor
mahan - average to poor. clearly not a center.
kemo - average to poor. still having trouble learning the playbook.
essex - average to poor
smith - above average, but not healthy
hartwig - remains to be seen, but was nothing special before coming here
colon - average to poor. clearly not a tackle.
stapleton - unknown
capizzi - unknown

also, the steelers probably won't have a DB worth the value of the 23rd pick to choose.

IMO, they should BPA the OL or DL.

the DL is in shambles.

smith - coming off an injury and is getting old.
hampton - isn't getting any younger and he needs to lose weight.
kirschke - old and basically a backup.
keisel - too small to play the DL in a 3-4.
mcbean - unknown.
hoke - getting old.

I think I have to agree with Steeldude, I can't see where signing an average C changes this teems needs a lot. This problem line has still lost its best player, and its 2nd best play may not stay healthy.
We have also seen that this D-line is one injury away from big trouble.

I want the Steelers to draft Branden Albert. Anyone who thinks Mahan is a suitable replacement for Faneca is not thinking straight. Mahan sucks, has always sucked, and will continue to suck. I also want the Steelers to draft Antoine Cason, I think he will drop to round 2 because of the cornerback depth in this draft, however he may require trading up. Kendall Langford for d-line depth, and Kirk Barton to replace Willie Colon, who allowed 13 sacks in 2007.

THANK YOU !!!!......the reason the oline is in shambles, and the D line is heading in that direction, is because of neglecting drafting quality depth for the lines the past 5 years !!! so now we pick up ANOTHER second rate lineman and people think the problems are solved ,so just forget about this year...........tthis way of thinking by the F.O. is how the problems started to begin with !!!! even if hartwig performs better than expected, there's still the problems at BOTH tackles that need addressed. does anyone really wanna see colon or starks stinking it up another year at RT ??? is smith a guaranteed to be back at LT??? Who backs up both?

Who knows, last year we needed LBs and we got LBs. No matter what you think of the Timmons pick, he gave us help on STs and depth. Then came the 2nd round, and the Gods gave us Woodley!

Wouldn't it be something if the team drafted Albert in the 1st and somehow Cherilus fell to us in the 2nd.

O.K., all at once, cross your fingers!
