Default What If The Steelers Take..

I would love to see the Steelers upgrade their defensive line and maybe one of these 2 players would fit the Steelers mold very well.

DE Tyson Jackson 6' 5" 290 lbs from LSU
This guy is a great prospect for the Steelers 3-4 scheme. He has all kinds of potential to replace Aaron Smith in a year or two and get alot of playing time from Brett Keisel

Then there is a LB/DE mix in Larry English at 6'3 255 lbs he is a monster of a passrusher and I think the Steelers like that in a player dont you?..

What round is English projected for? I think we're pretty well set at OLB for a bit. Well set enough to take chances on later round draft picks.

Harrison, Woodley are studs. Timmons can play there. Davis is in the pipeline. IMHO this is a second tier goal.

Tyson seems like the consensus top 3-4 DE. Good pick if available.

English will go at the bottom of the 1st or top of the 2nd round. He will be a guy that projects as a 3-4 OLB, so he can sit behind Harrison and Woodley for the next 4 years.......not gonna happen.

Tyson Jackson is my pick for bust of this draft. I watched him play in 4 games for LSU this year and it was most disturbing to see him handled one on one by the TE of Ole Miss in pass protection. He handfights too much and takes plays off. I hope the Bengals take him.

I hope someone takes him so that Gilbert is is waiting for us in Round #2.

I also prefer Moala or Gilbert to Jackson as far as D-line prospects go. Frankly, though, it might be a moot point--I hope we go O-line first round.

Others that I think the Steelers should look at in later rounds also.

RB Ian Johnson at 6'0 195lbs from Boise State. The guy is or could be a good return man as well.

FB Quinn Johnson 6'1 260 lbs from LSU. I think the Steelers need to get a FB back in the backfield along with whoever our starter is at RB. This guy can block and showed at the senior bowl that he can also catch the ball out of the backfield.

WR Brian Robiskie 6'3 200 lbs Ohio State
This guy plays very physical and would be a great 4th round selection if he is still there.

WR Jarrett Dillard 5'11 185 Rice
The Steelers need a good return man and this guy is the real deal. I would love to see the Steelers get this little guy.
