Default Wexell's Twitter

Not sure if this is posted yet, but Wexell posted yesterday the first 2 players that the steelers have eyes on for the 2010 draft.

Sean Weatherspoon, OLB Missouri
Corey Wootton, DE, Northwestern

I would love to have Weatherspoon in the black and gold, like the way he palys.

I am going to try to keep this thread updated with Wexell's twitter, who is a very reliable source.

Weatherspoon is a great prospect for one of our Middle LB spots IMO and I would love to have him. I think that we should be able to get him at 18 without trading up. It would be nice to trade back about 5 spots get an extra 2nd and still get him.

There are some good linebackers in the draft.

Why not? Players move positions all the time... especially talented ones.

I believe he has experience both inside and outside, but has really excelled on the edge.

Timmons also played OLB. Thing is he can run, hit, and cover. I think Weatherspoon is alot like Timmons and a good fit for us.

Exactly.

Besides, this could be just a smokescreen so we can draft the offensive line coach we really covet.

Weatherspoon has been clocked in the 40 at 4.58 so he definitely has the speed to play inside.

I dont know a whole lot about weatherspoon and am not sure if he drops back in coverage a lot? Mostly outside guys tend to blitz a lot more.

position changes kind of scare me for some reason

Wooten is interesting. But where would he play? He's 6'7", 280...he'd need to gain weight to play DE and 280 is pretty heavy to play OLB (although at 6'7" he's probably not fat).

He's rangy and a huge playmaker, though, and he goes to Northwestern, so he's got to have a good head on his shoulders.

Interesting that they are looking DL and LB first....
