'Playmaker' Tony Smith appears to be a back-up for Troy polamalu.

I would have thought that with Troy's ability to 'make plays' that the steelers would need a good coverage guy to balance things out.

Maybe Ryan Clark will be the 'cover guy'...who knows?

Yahoo has a pretty cool section where they show highlights of the players chosen.

Check it out.

Great.... is this kid a project?

Smith is not a consistent player. He does not consistently come up quickly in run support, and often seems content to allow teammates to make tackles. He does not consistently tackle well in space and often ends up lunging and missing too many tackles. While he can run with tight ends down the seam, he does not stay with them out of cuts well and allows separation too often. When his back is to the quarterback in man-to-man coverage, he lacks the ball awareness to make plays on the ball.

Wonder who they will pick at #95 then, perhaps a DT like Babatunde Oshinawa from Stanford would be a good pick here.

Or if RB perhaps DonTrell Moore from New Mexico either would be a great addition to the team

He's a bit of a project, but has all the intangibles to be an awesome safety. He's got Troy and Ryan in front of him, and can work with Logan too, so he has some time to do his learning curve. Its a safe pick for us in the 3rd round if nothing else.

Willie Reid is a player... I promise you that... I have seen him play a number of games and was really impressed

Odd that we took another WR. I remember seeing him play too in a few games, he's a tough kid which fits our bill at WR on our team.

But still puzzles me that we didnt go for DL or LB. Although there has been a big run at LB's so there isnt much left there.

I think we needed him too, He will go over the middle and catch everything... He is tough as nails and we can get the ball to him in the seems and across the middle to help free up Holmes and Ward.... I really like this pick up...
