Default What's our draft position?

well since everything is done for us now, what would our draft position be with respect to the game later tonight? would we finish above or below the jets if they were to miss the playoffs?

Not sure, but I'd love to see the Steelers draft Taylor Mays out of USC, then pick up a free agent corner for depth.

Troy will be back and we'll probably let Tyrone Carter walk.

The last USC safety we grabbed ended up being pretty good. If I'm the Steelers I figure out a way to get Taylor Mays. I'd swap our first and second for a higher first to get Mays.

Taylor Mays isn't very good in coverage and wouldnt' be a good fit with Troy P..



We need a DL, CB or OL in the 1st round..

Troy wasn't very good at coverage in College.. I don't get all the hate Mays gets about it.

imo i think we should get Cody outta 'Bama. He's one of the best looking nose tackles we'll have a shot at for a while and that is definately something that a 3-4 D needs.

I'd argue that...

1) he wouldn't be worse than Ty Carter in coverage

2) it's arguable that he wouldn't be as good as Ryan Clark.

That said, you're right though. He's a strong safety and the Steelers need a ball hawk back there.

I'm also not sold on Timmons being a middle linebacker. He doesn't fight off blocks nearly well enough. Maybe look at linebacker if there is a good one available. Farrior isn't getting younger.

I see what they are saying though. Mays is a strong safety. Troy's position.

Now, with Troy being prone to injury I wouldn't mind having a backup strong safety like Mays.

I'd much rather have Mays than Carter as a backup.

If the Jets win they're in and we would draft ahead of them. If they lose they are 8-8 and would draft ahead of us.
I believe we'll be drafting 19th if the Jets win directly in front of Houston and 20th if they lose.
We will also be playing the 3rd place schedule next year which means we'll have the Titans on the road and the Raiders at home again next year. The Rest of the games are set. Our division twice each. The AFC East. The NFC South.
