I think if you look around the league, you will see quite a few good CBs weren't selected very high. Hell one of the best DBs to play the game in Ronde Barber was like a 3rd or 4th rounder.

I sure hope this means we take weatherspoon in the first and Nate Allen in the second.

I think if we're to take a ILB in the first round we should trade up for McClain. Nothing against Spoon but mid first is to high for him and if McClain falls passed the Broncos i say we make a move before the Giants can take him.

That. McClain is the next best linebacker in the league.

If McClain somehow is drafted by the Steelers he will be the second coming of Ray Lewis!!!! I bet he will be as good as Patrick Willis was early and I honestly hope we have a shot at this guy because he's a beast and he's probably as athletic as Spoon!!! He probably is more athletic who knows.....and most importantly he played in a 3-4 defense in college!!!!

I don't think spoon at 18 is too early it is right around what I've seen him ranked according to players in the draft. He is without a doubt a top 20 player in the draft.

I would love to see McClain in the black and gold but I just don't see him falling to 18, or us trading up to get him. And i actually like Spike better than Spoon.

I still want to find a way to get Thomas or McClain if we can........We need playmakers on D..........Opposing teams are carving up our zones.....How many Turnovers we get this year will be critical.....................this Draft just feels like a lot is on the line, we can't afford anymore 2nd round busts like Sweed

especially if we lose Ben

I love what the steelers are doing this offseason(besides Ben...but thats a whole other story)

1.We sign ryan clark, hampton, and reed back. Also add some key additions like Will Allen and Battle. Now you have troy, clark, mundy, and allen back at safety with no carter...which is awesome.

2. With i believe the safety stop to be locked we know can focus on something else in the first maybe OL DL Linebacker are all possibilities.

3. We are also said to believe that we are trying to sign El back as well as foote.

4. I cant wait for the draft and nest season it shall be awesome.
