Default I Absolutely Hate our 2nd and 3rd round picks!

Wtf were we thinking? An OLB? Really? When we have pressing needs at CB, DL, S, and G. I was at work and I got the texts from a friend telling me who we took. I was royally pissed. The WR baffles me as well. Stupid! I gotta vent about this. I hope I am completely wrong, but why not a corner or d-lineman in the second and third? F***!

I hear you. I mean, it sounds like we got a good player but took him WAY higher than we needed to. Then we made what looked like a hip-shooting effort to draft for need in Round 3, but got a guy way worse than we could've had in Round 2. Basically, flip-flop the picks and we end up with Golden Tate and still get Worilds in the third. If we really do it right, maybe we unload some of our shitload of late-round picks and get another decent prospect. Like I said in the other thread, we blew it on the numbers game this time.

the steelers needed a OLB too. who, on the roster, do the steelers have waiting in the wings at OLB?

G was settled when they picked pouncey. he will start his career at G and then move to C.

i agree with you on the WR position being selected on the 2nd day. oh well, perhaps everything will work out as they planned.

I am a fan of those picks. OLB and WR were just fine by me.

The grass looks greener on my side of the fence. The only way it could have been better was to see Koa Misi fall to us #52.

Hell, I would even love to see us draft Eric Norwood in the 4th to really bolster the LB corp

Guard? Exactly how many guards do we need? Lets see Kemo, Essex, Pouncy, Urbik, Foster and Legursky. That is either more than enough guards or the longest sounding law firm name I have ever heard.

Yea, Ben don't like short ... then again, he is probably isn't being consulted at the moment. "Yes sir (Mr. Rooney), that was a great pick. After I detail your car and pick-up the dry cleaning, I'll take my 15 minute break before I get to those bathrooms."

Pouncey will be our next great center, We passed on Mangold a few years ago, couldn't let this one pass us by. GREAT PICK

I could't agree more that these were BAD picks, my friends and I shared this anger with you! We need to replace William Gay not our LB's!
