Default A Nice Start

I think this would make for an awesome start to our 2010 Steelers Draft. Would you be as satisfied as me if we got these 2 players in the first 2 rounds? I would be loving it I believe.

Round 1
OG Mike Iupati from Idaho
-or-
DE Jared Odrick Penn State

Round 2
DB Kyle Wilson Boise State

I doubt Wilson falls to us in the second.

He probably will fall into the second, and I hope he does drop to #18. Haden, Robinson and Cox will most likely come off the board before him and this is such a deep defensive class, there's a chance he could fall to #18. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Sorry but OG aren't worth first rounders, let alone a top 20 pick. Unless he is a dominate force and I don't think Mike Iupati is that dominate. I would wanna trade down if we are going to pick him.

If the Steelers don't take Wilson @ 1, he won't be there in the second round....you don't pass on a shutdown corner when you need one

No to the round 1 options, fine with round 2.

I know alot of this draft stuff depends on how the Steelers do on resigning their own players and maybe a free agent or 2 at the most. I dont see the Steelers making much noise in the free agent spree. But to resign Clark is very important in my opinion and we all seen what happened when we lost Chris Hope. In my opinion we took a step backwards after losing him. Its hard to tell who is gonna fall and who isnt, so I guess we will have to wait and see. I could ideally see the Steelers taking a DE or ILB at 18 as well. We need a replacement for Farrior who is getting up in age and Lawrence Timmons hasnt shown much to me in my opinion.

I think Iupati is a bit overhyped at this point. He seems to have all the tools, but looks like a rather unfinished product to me at this point. He looked great in practice all week in Mobile, but in the game he struggled a lot with Dan Williams and Geno Atkins. I think somebody takes him at the bottom of the 1st round.

Odrick on the other hand would be fine at #18, but I dont know if we will select a DE in the 1st round, when we already did pick one last year in Hood. Plus, we also have another DE prospect in Sunny Harris on the roster and Keisel with a new contract.

I think Wilson would be the better option at #18, or maybe take the best OT or NT on the board at that time.

Have to agree there unless Aaron Smith has issues but I believe he's coming along fine by all reports.

Odrick would be a good fit at Keisel's slot though. He's maybe stronger at getting into the backfield as opposed to stopping the run. To that end he probably hopes to end up a 3-technique 4-3DT.
