Lookie there, another person that thinks this thread is all about them. It's not, it's about a OT that I think would be a very good pick. If he is available. These are my thoughts on the subject, which like it or not, is just as valid as yours.

There are several people that oppose taking an O-lineman. I am only supposing that you have read a few yourself. When I have something to say to you, I will say it to you, but will try to be more respectful than you have been.

I think everyone knows that you want us to get a great RG and a C and so on...you've said it enough times we get the point, just because we dont agree with you does not mean you need to keep saying it and get nasty with everyone...thats just ridiculous, act like an adult, not some 12 year old.

Like I said in an earlier post, if Colon leaves, that likely means that he played his way OUT of a big contract. I'm not rooting for him to fail. Nor do I want to keep my 1st round pick on the bench for three years. Even though we're known for letting our rookies sit back and develop, I don't want to wait that long.

Foster, Legursky, and Urbik aren't strong options for me. More swingmen or plain bad players. I'm not going to let a mid-round pick and two UDFAs deter me from taking a potentially great RG or C if I have the chance to do so.
Kendall Simmons started in his rookie year because starting guard Rich Tylski had a season ending injury.

If Colon leaves, its likely because somebody else is willing to pay more for his services than the Steelers will. See John Jackson, Leon Searcy, Alan Faneca, Wayne Gandy, etc.....for similar situation.

You want to get a potentially great Guard or C in the 2nd..........yet you dispell the notion of drafting a blue chip OT in this thread because of "reports you have read"??? Nice work.

Chill out 7willBheaven.......12 year old is a bit harsh. I'm guessing 18. That would explain not knowing that Kendall Simmons didnt start his rookie year based only on merit, but rather injury.

To end my thoughts on this. I am not particularly in the Bruce Campbell corner, but think the kid could be a special OT in this league. If there is a top LT prospect at #18 or a top CB prospect, I have no problem if the Steelers pull the trigger on them. Both are important positions in the NFL and could improve the Steelers greatly.

this is all a moot point anyway cause campbell won't be around at 18 .... if campbell played for a high profile program like USC he'd already be in everyones top 10 . my guess is the only tackle that will be available at 18 will be trent williams.

I have seen several mocks that have us taking Williams, so you may not be the only one thinking this way.

If you don't agree with me, fine, but don't act like I or the group who is against drafting an OT, are people who are too dumb to realize the importance of a good offensive line. As if that was our only reason; "oohing" and "ahhing" at the flashy WR or RB.

Being nasty? Acting like I'm 12? Come on....that's laying it on a bit thick don't you think?

Having said that, I did come off too harshly at Texas' comments. For that, I offer my apologies to TexasSteel. Jerk move on my part.

We are all here for the right reason.
We are all passionate at times for the guys we pimp

But ultimately we are all passionate in our belief that the steelers War room will finally listen to us and go with the picks we suggest. I just hope that one day they listen to one of us.

We havent (collectively all of us here) been to good pimping the Ziggy and Mendenhall picks of late. Hopefully between us all sharing our pimps over FS, CB, OT, OG and NT we might do a better job this year.

However I would love for us all to be wrong and land the Premier ILB.

And I apologies for firing back at you.

Actually, my hope has been, since the end of the season, and still is that Earl Thomas is still there when we pick. It would take me about 2 minutes to make that pick.

If that doesn't happen I do want one of the OTs if one of the top 5 are still there and 1 maybe even 2 should be, My favorite of the bunch is Davis, but I have a feeling that the one left will be Williams.

That failing I think I would take the NT Williams. I do think that is a little early for him, sorry LLT, but just the letters NT seems to move players up about 5 spots.

If none of that happens I think I would like to trade down and look for a LB or possibly CB. I'm wondering if we do take a CB if Lewis could move to safety, but someone else will have to answer that question.
