In the past they've done this for players that they really like.

2006 Steelers trade pick 32 and 96 for Giant's 26 to get Tone

2003 Steelers trade picks 27, 92 and 200 for KC's 16 to pick up Troy.

Basic moves this year would be either our 1 and 3 to move up to 26th overall or our 1 and 2 to move up to about 20th.

I think the Steelers would have somebody valued higher than those spots to make the trade. Who could slide to make these trades make sense?

@20 Andre Smith, Tyson Jackson or Michael Oher maybe?

@26 Rey Maualuga or Vontae Davis maybe.

I think Maualuga is probably the only one I'd consider a special player. Maybe Andre Smith.

What do you think?

I think Oher is the only one I would trade up for. I like Maluagua, but trading up for a LB just doesn't make sense at the moment.

I tend not to speculate on the draft, or talk smack about our draft, the steelers front office always seems to make the right decisions, so im down with whatever they do

Well I would have agreed with this scenario ... but then we lost our projected 3rd round compensatory pick, which would have made this scenario very possible.

So now I think we will hold true to our 32nd pick and take the best O-Lineman available there.

If we do trade up in Round 1 I'm hoping it is for Tyson Jackson.

We did NOT hear it here first. I've been saying we're going to package a RB and a pick and move up for at least 6 weeks now.

Why would we package a RB? ... and which RB would anyone even be interested in? ... and don't even suggest Mewelde Moore.

That's not our style!

We would have strongly considered trading up if we had an extra 3rd rounder to offer. But forget it now. We will hold fast at #32 and take the best player at a need position.
