Round #3 Greg Eslinger, C, Minnesota (2nd best C coming into the draft, we will need dept when hartings is cut)

Round #4 Cedric Humes, RB Virginia Tech (Big Back Great For Short Yardage And Goal Line).

Rounds #5, #6, #7 best players availible.
During his NFL Combine interview, Miami University WR Martin Nance said he measured a height of 6-4.02 and a weight of 213 pounds. He said he might add a couple more pounds, but feels his speed is pretty good now. His fastest 40-yard dash time was a 4.35. Nance says he's a big receiver who can stretch the field and makes plays after the catch. Nance is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in Game 5 of 2004. He had surgery in early October of 2004 and returned for the 2005 season with a different quarterback throwing to him. Nance is still working on his speed and tightening up his control....I'd like to see us take a chance on Nance.....

I was worried about his speed dropping off from the injury, but it's obviously had no effect...he didn't have stellar numbers last year, but Betts is no Roethlisberger. I think Nance is making a pretty big blip on the Steelers radar...

I'm changing my picks because of what I have seen at the combine

#1 Nick Mangold, C Ohio State. He has just looked great and has great speed and quickness. I don't know how we could pass on him. We will draft him if he is still there.

#2 Martin Nance, WR Miami He still has speed and great size.(OH)

#3 Claude Wroten, DT Louisiana State I'm afarid he won't be there so if he is not then I would pick John McCargo, DT North Carolina State

#4 Cedric Humes, RB Virginia Tech

#5 Terna Nande, OLB Miami (OH)

#6 Kellen Clemens, QB Oregon

#7 Best Kick or Punt return guy availible

BigBenFan4Ever I definitely like your picks except for Wroten he won't be that deep in the draft and he has had some off the field problems. If Jason Avant or Maurice Stovall are still available I also pick one of them over Nance. As for the 1st round I'm definitely vying for Nick Mangold, but also a great choice would be DT Brodrick Bunkley from FSU. He is HUGE, QUICK, and POWERFUL. He would be better than Aaron Smith and Kimo combined. We would probably have to trade up a few spots, but I'm telling you with Hampton and Bunkley our line would be great. Some choicese at OLB also would be Parys Haralson, and Chris Gocong. Other DT to put as DE in our 3-4 D are Marcus Green - OSU, Barry CoField - Northwestern, and Dusty Dvoarcek - Oklahoma.

Well, it depends on who we lose. We usually pick best available athlete, not for need.

That thread you posted about restructuring deals clears a lot of things up. We can completely remove center off the draft list (at least in the first few rounds), and probably move RB up a rd as well. #1 leaves me stymied though...if they go WR, Nance may be a reach. It may very well be an OL for depth.

Stovall would be a perfect fit for our offense. He's got all the star receiver qualities plus he's a hell of a blocker. He didn't get to shine at ND until his last year and he's still got so much more potential. Best part is that he'll be underneath the radar, so we should actually be able to pick him up.

He had a good game against OSU playing against the best defense in college football. I think he caught 9-10 balls for 120 yards or so...that's impressive!
