1) Eben Britton,..In a word...NO!!
Britton to me as a HUGE Red Flag, and that is extremely short arms and wingspan. This is okay if you are a G or a C. But an OT with short arms will be expossed. Like Britton was many times this past season. he's more of a system, Zone-blocking O-Linemen, not a Mauler. And what's worse is with such short arms, one would think he would have better strength, Britton does not. Just say no!


2) Rashad Johnson....in two words...HELL NO!!
First off, Johnson probably won't even be there at 64, so thank God for that. Second thing, Johnson is a " Tweener " he doesn't know if he's a CB or a S in college. But further more, if Johnson does play S in the NFL, it will be a FS. And we have this guy named " Troy ", maybe you've heard of him ? If the steelers do deceide to let free agent to be Ryan Clark go after this season, we will need a Stron Safety to replace him. And speaking of SEC S, the guy that I REALLY LOVE is Ole Miss SS Jamaraca, oh I forget his last name at the moment, but this cat puts the word STRONG, i stron safety. All-Time SEC leader in tackles, and is a run-stuffer supreme, and hitter. And what's better, he can be had,,,for whatever reason late in the draft, maybe the 5th or even 6th round. And he, unlike Johnson has
" Pedigree "


3) A.Q. Shipley: Well I do Like this guy alot, but as our 3rd rounder ?...well...maybe, but I would have to say No too. I love him as our 4th rounder, but in the 3rd, if he is there, I like the Cb Mike Mickens. Unless of course the steelers decide to address that need earlier.



Anyways, those are my takes on the three.

are you on crack?

or you just say something completely opposite of reality in every post on purpose?

if youre gonna talk down to people and be a prick, atleast have your facts straight.

revs was spot on. anything completely opposite of what you spew is a lucid, well thought out post.

Tony:

What the heck are you talking about ? How exactly was I talking down to anyone ? I was stating my opinion on his three formentioned players. And who is this revs person anyways ? And what info did I state was the complete opposite ? Please be as specific as you can. Also, expect Mod " Hometowngal " to get this post, and we'll let her decide who is being disrespectful, and who is talking down to who.



Have a nice day!

I would be very happy with Britton if he is there at 32, but I think he may not be.

Rashad Johnson is one of the better FSs in this draft and could do very well across from Troy, our SS, especially with Clark, our starting FS, starting to get hurt more often.

If we go OT with our first pick, and FS with our 2nd, I think I would rather look to the DL, at this point, if there is one that is worth the 3rd round pick. If we get a comp pick I still like Mark Parson at CB.

Nice job.
