Exactly!! and the fact the guy that wrote the article is also pimping McCluster, Cody and Witherspoon makes me think he did his research by reading Steelersfever. Was the author named Chidi29???

Another thing I've been reading is nothing but good reports on CB Kyle Wilson out of Boise State...I had the chance to watch him play and the guy was a playmaker @ both the return game and as a CB....Do you think the Steelers might have a chance to draft him in the 2nd round....or do u think the Steelers might trade down a couple of picks(get extra draft picks) and then draft him in the first....I know its kind of a reach for Wilson...but from what I've been hearing lately, he probably is a late 1st to early 2nd round pick....Can anyone confirm that???
Iupati's stock has definitely risen. He's really show a lot of talent and a good work ethic. However, he looked a little sloppy when practicing at tackle and a lot of scouts think he'll strictly play guard, but at an elite level.

Wilson has been stellar this week at practice. Every day I've heard scouts mumbling about how good he's been. Mike Tomlin was watching him at practice yesterday in DB/WR drills. I'd love to see him end up in Steelers colors. I think he'll end up being a second-round pick, but I don't know where. I doubt he jumps into the first, though.

Thanks for the insight jonslow...I just find it funny that Tomlin is paying attention to CB Wilson and TE Dickerson.....I hope the Steelers pick both of those guys come draft day....they look like solid picks if you ask me....

Are you asking if I wrote the article? If so, I did not.

Why do we need to target a RB, we don't need one, we need to go defense. Not like a 2nd RB will get used anyway, Airhead Arians hardly uses Mendy.

O line, Linbacker, D line and secondary are definite needs. I hope the Steelers Address them, I wasn't a big fan of last years draft....Only Wallace made and impact...Hood was Decent, the 2 corners did nothing, Urbick couldn't beat out an undrafted free agent....

If Mike Iupati lasts til the 2nd round I will run for president in the next election...
The DB Kyle Wilson has looked great. I have Tvoed all the practices and watched them over and over and I think the guy looks as if he has awesome ballhawking skills, if he can catch the ball the guy has a very brite future ahead of him. ILB Daryl Washington from TCU at 6'3 234 lbs has really looked great as well. The guy is a monster and has the numbers to back it up. The Defensive Coordinator had nothing but great things to say about the guys work ethic as well.. sounds like he would be a great pickup to backup James Farrior and replace him maybe after next season.
