If Mclain is available they take him, if not they'll probably go DT or trade down, Spoon isn't a top 20 pick. If people have even Mclain falling to 18, spoon could fall to when the Eagle pick at 24 or even later. Spoon is for sure a great player but not much need for ILB that early other then the Giants so I'm sorry to say, i don't see Spoon in the top 20.

Only Timmons played back up for that long, and look what that did for him. Mendy started his 2nd season only because he was injured his rookie season and for Hood he's gonna see a lot more play time next season with how he ended this season. I don't hate Spoon but why take another Timmons and let him sit for two years? Doesn't make much sense IMO when you could have someone that could very well start right away.

Yup just like Troy did his rookie season. You sure know it all. Also I realize mastery of the English language is not one of your strong suits but try rereading my post. I said nothing about starting. I said the rookie will not make a substantial impact. You heard it hear first. Supa Fly is becoming more bitter because his prospect isn't getting as much love as others.

Troy didn't start any games his rookie season and if we draft Thomas he pretty much has no choice but to start since we have no one else.

That please read xXTheSteelKingsXx. If we drafted somelike like Burnett, Mays, Thomas or Allen they would have no choice but to start.

Back when we had Troy we had depth. We don't have that privaledge right now. There was Chris Hope and Mike Logan back in 2003.

But let me guess you didn't support the Steelers in 2003 you supported them since we won our sixth right.

I understand that but my point is Leabeu has a complicated system and any rookie is going to struggle to grasp it. This is going to hurt their production. I would much rather start a less talented Ryan Mundy with his two years of experience in our defense than a more talented rookie like Berry or Thomas who is possibly going to be hesitant and react slower.

I'm not saying that if we draft Thomas or Berry, or any other free saftey, that they will not start some point this season but if we do not bring back Clark or sign a veteran FA I feel Mundy will be starting, at the onset of the season, at free saftey regardless the draft pick. The transition to the NFL along with Leabeu's scheme is really difficult.

Also, please refrain from calling my fanhood into question to try and weaken my arguement. I was a fan of the Steelers before you had even heard of the sport of football. I'm really getting sick of all the threats and personal attacks. Even if we have differing views on a subject we can still debate them in an adult manner.

Try taking your own advice big guy, I've been reading these threads for a few months now and you and many other take any shot you can at Supa, that's not debating in an "adult manner" if you ask me.
