Default 15 OTs

Thats Right, I'm an addict. Half way through July, getting closer to the season.
Just thought I would put out 15 names that I think will be worth watching this year as Steeler fans.
Add to it if you like.

Michall Oher, 6-5, 320, 5.22, Mississippi
Alex Boone, 6-7, 310, 5.25, Ohio St.
Phil Loadholt, 6-8, 348, 5.38, Oklahoma
Andre Smith, 6-5, 340, 5.22, Alabama / Jr.
Ciron Black, 6-5, 315, 5.25, LSU / Jr.
Eugene Monroe, 6-5, 315, 5.25, Virginia
Dallas Reynolds, 6-5, 325, 5.10, BYU
Andrew Gardner, 6-6, 300, 5.10, Georgia Tech
Sean Sester, 6-7, 323, 5.15, Purdue
Sam Young, 6-7, 315, 5.25, Notre Dame / Jr.
Jamon Meredith, 6-5, 305, 5.10, South Carolina
Eric VandenHeuvel, 6-7, 325, 5.25, Wisconsin
Adam Ulatosk, 6-8, 310, 5.26, Texas / Jr.
Dace Richardson, 6-6, 310, 5.10, Iowa
Augustus Parrish, 6-4, 305, 5.15 Kent St.

The 2 that I like the most, so far, that I think we may have a shot at are Ciron Black, and Alex Boone.

Default Re: 15 OTs

Thanks TS...I took some time and looked ove some of these prospects...it could be a good year for OT's...not as many 1st rounders as this last draft...but the drop in talent from the 1st round to the second day isnt as great.

Here is a list of potential 3-4 DE's for your to take a look at....MUCH deeper than last year!!!! (some are DT's in college but may be able to move to DE).

1) Tyson Jackson, LSU
Height: 6-5. Weight: 292.

2) Fili Moala, USC
Height: 6-4. Weight: 295.

3) Al Woods*, LSU
Height: 6-5. Weight: 314.

4) Jeff Owens, Georgia
Height: 6-3. Weight: 296.

5) Demonte Bolden, Tennessee
Height: 6-6. Weight: 290....*injured

6) Dorell Scott, Clemson
Height: 6-4. Weight: 319.

7) Darryl Richard, Georgia Tech
Height: 6-4. Weight: 290.

8) Kyle Moore, USC
Height: 6-6. Weight: 275.

9) Jervonte Jackson, Florida Atlantic
Height: 6-3. Weight: 286.

10) John Gill, Northwestern
Height: 6-3. Weight: 293.

11) Jason Chapman, Wisconsin
Height: 6-4. Weight: 285.

12) Will Johnson, Michigan
Height: 6-5. Weight: 295.

13) Pannel Egboh, Stanford
Height: 6-6. Weight: 280.

Thanks LLT, I agree about the low drop off in OTs. If we can't get Black I think that I would just as soon wait till the 2nd round to take a OT.

That is a great list of Steeler DEs the only names I might add would be Vance Walker and Greg Middieton. There are a couple on kids there that I don't know a lot about but I will be the end of the year.

I think this draft could be very good to the Steelers. I hope we can get an extra 3rd for Faneca.

I don't think Middleton would fit in a 3-4....I think he is best suited for a 4-3....................

I just know in the first round DE or OT has to be the route the Steelers go.....

Well with OTs and DE behind us lets take a look at the OGs

Duke Robinson, 6-5 330, 5.25, Oklahoma
Herman Johnson, 6-7, 345, 5.40, LSU,
Jeremy Perry, 6-2, 330, 5.25, Oregon St.
Cedric Dockery, 6-4, 320, 5.25, Texas
Steve Rehring, 6-7, 330 5.35, Ohio St.
Louis Vasquez, 6-6, 335, 5.25, Texas Tech.
Ray Feinga, 6-5, 330, 5.15, BYU
Kraig Urbik, 6-6, 330, 5.30, Wisconsin
Paul Fanaika, 6-6, 335, 5.40, Arizona St.
Travis Bright, 6-5, 330, 5.35, BYU
Anthony Parker, 6-2 305, 5.10, Tennessee
Mitch Petrus, 6-4, 310, 5.10, Arkansas
Andy Kemp, 6-5, 320, 5.20 Wisconsin
Chris Crouch, 6-4, 325, 5.20, N.C. St.

I think there is a little bit of a drop off when I get past 7 or 8, but there are some very useable OGs here. I am really warming up to Louis Vasquez, I beleave he didn't give up a sack all year. We get a lot of Texas Tech. game so he's one kid I should be able to get a good read on.

Have not gotten to OC yet.

Center position is going to be tough for me because, I have only seen a couple that I like.
Could be someone else should handle the center position.
Right now I like Alex Mack far and away better than any other, but Jonathan Luigs would be me 2nd choice.

Here's a super sleeper to watch out for at OT. Chris Kemme from Akron. He's only a junior, but he was a 3 sport athlete in HS (Football, Lacrosse and Basketball) who never had time to really hit the weights so he only weighed 242 when he was recruited and was overlooked by all the big schools. He's now 6'6" and 300, and moves very well for a big guy. Very athletic, has a nasty streak, and has a ton of upside. Here's an excerpt from the Columbus Dispatch about him last year:

Now, Kemme makes defensive linemen nervous.

"Chris has a nastiness to him on the field," Callahan said. "I saw that in high school and I really liked that."

Kemme stresses that it's a controlled nastiness.

"There are times when I do get that mentality when I just want to bury the guy across from me," he said. "I don't talk a whole lot of trash. I just play. I think the opponent gets more frustrated when I don't talk back. I really like to run block. That's when you can get physical."


Sounds like a Steelers type of guy to me. He played as a true freshman, and improved dramatically last year. If that continues, he could be a really good OT.
