Default If These Players Are Left?

I know that it is very unlikely, but what if these 7 players are available when the Steelers on the on the clock with the 32nd pick, who do The Steelers make as their #1 choice in the 2009 NFL Draft ?

C Alex Mack 6' 4" 311 lbs California
DE Tyson Jackson 6'4" 296 lbs LSU
OT William Beatty 6'6" 307 lbs Connecticut
DB Alphonso Smith 5'9" 193 lbs Wake Forest
DB Darius Butler 5'11" 190 lbs Connecticut
OLB Clint Sintim 6'3" 256 lbs Virginia ( My Sleeper )
OG Duke Robinson 6'5" 330 lbs Oklahoma

_____________

Again, I know that the possibility is very Low of this happening, but what if? Who Would You Select?

It would be a very difficult decision for me, but I would have to go with a DB as of right now or DE. That is where DB Darius Butler would come in and DE Tyson Jackson.. it would be a very hard decision to make in my opinion.

I went with Beatty as well. I believe that if we have a chance at a player that can play LT for us, we have to take him. Beatty, I think, is that last of that bunch.

I voted for Beatty - but it would be a close decision between Beatty, Mack, and Robinson.

We need a center. We also need a tackle for the left side. And we need a right guard, a spot which Robinson could fill nicely.

So, I guess I'd take all three.

Definitely Tyson Jackson, he definitely has the best value, & the only player on the board with a fair shot at being in the top 20. The Steelers would be lucky to have him fall to their laps. The Steelers probably wouldn't take a 2nd round linebacker that will be a backup for years so don't know why Sintim's on the poll.

Butler is the best player available out of those presented, but I don't know if we could pass up a tackle prospect in Beatty.

I wouldn't select Jackson, Robinson, Smith or Sintim until the second round. They just wouldn't be worth it.

Jackson is the definition of overrated, Smith is more promise than player, Robinson is a solid player but just not first round talent... And Sintim should not be chosen for obvious reasons.

I agree. As much as I think Mack is a better player, I chose Beatty because he can play LT and still add another 10-15lbs on his frame and be a solid LT that can pass protect and is a willing run blocker.

With the depth at the center position, I think the Steelers could have a shot at Wood or Caldwell in the 2nd or later and even Shipley on day 2. Not to mention, Hartwig, Stapleton and Legursky are already on the roster at center. Take the LT prospect!!!
