Default So who's ur 1st round draft pick ?

We know the Steelers will be picking near the bottom of the first round, regardless. So what do you go for? OL, DL ?

We've seen what happens when the Steelers ignore the OL on the first day of the draft, look no further than a couple years ago. We always have a great OL becuz we keep fresh new bodies coming in via the draft for depth.

Prospects for a top notch DL probably arent the greatest late in the first round, so maybe do you trade out of it and get another 2nd round pick ? We need depth on the DL with Kimo's contract becoming a cap issue next year.

Default Re: So who's ur 1st round draft pick ?

Here's whats being said, and I like it so far. Draft a CB first round. With last year being big on CB less demand this year great players slip to mid and late round slots. Then, sad to say, Bell gets tagged and traded for equal 2nd round pick. This is where d-line gets picked. And we still pick again in the second. Skill pick here(TE or RB being speculated) then stock pile line picks the rest of the way. Nothing flashy, just drafting smart.

Bell is such an impact player, he's so explosive and powerful, I can still remember him bullrushing OG and just flat out knocking them on their arse. But the guy just cant stay healthy, and with him being a FA, I just dont know that you can dump all that money into him, when he hasnt played even a complete season since his rookie year.

Foote has done quite well there,and Im happy with him at this point.

I dont see us going TE at all in this draft or atleast not until day 2..only because we still have Jerame & matt kranchick from last years draft, and cushing is a do it all player. not to mention jay r. depending on his health status.

Gotta check, what is our RFA and UFA list look like this off season? Bell and Burress for sure, but after that, who else?

Found the list of agents. Going to post it under new topic. Still want a CB in first round as Williams is not any younger and Scott might be past prime.

A CB. I'd like to see Adam "Pacman" Jones from WVU drafted since i'm from Morgantown and a WVU fan.

Yeah having ben and another backyard boy on the team would be sweet but too bad we did good this year::) We'll be picking at the bottom.

Im not sure I'd see us going DB in the first round though..even if Scott is possibly released next year for cap reasons, we still have Taylor and Coclough waiting in the wings to help out. But we should definately address it at some point in the draft though, for depth.

I think you maybe right, it just depends on numbers at corner. If not expect a long two days of stock piling lines and line backers.
