this why you should not drink and post what I was going to say is this

I would love to see us take Devin Hester from Miami but I dont see him going that low another one that would be good for us is Santonio Holmes from The Ohio State Buckeyes and he is another oen I belive will be gone by the time we pick.

so with that said we should look at

Maurice Stovall from Notre Damn
Chad Jackson from Florida
Martin Nance from Miami of Ohio

That's purely from fan speculation. At the combine, the Steelers talked to Bobby Carpenter, a LB from Ohio State, and Bill Cowher attended OSU's Pro Day, where he also probably looked at Donte Whitner, a 2nd round Safety, and Santonio Holmes, a 1st round WR. Plus, other names thrown around in the Mock Drafts are WR Martin Nance, WR Chad Jackson, CB Ashton Youboty, and CB Antonio Cromartie.

Yeah, for some reason people aren't comprehending that Mangold is no longer on the Steelers radar after they restructured Hartings and Okobi and publicly stated that the job is Okobi's after Hartings retires.

I think Pittsburgh's biggest immediate need is at DE or OLB. They'll resign Keisel now that they have lost Kimo, but this isn't a great draft for 3-4 DEs. In the past, they have converted a college tackle into an end (Kimo, Aaron Smith) or even looked for guys who might be able to do both in needful situations (Keisel). But it might just be wise to look for a FA defensive end, and leave the draft open to the best player available. Outside of Carpenter's injuries, scouts have labeled him as a real difference-maker. Judging by his size and speed at the Combine (4.6 40 makes personnel directors drool), Carpenter looks like a Pittsburgh OLB through and through. Even with the signing of another FS today, I think they may want to look at FS or SS for depth/special teams (obviously, not in the first round). I like Carpenter like Mel Kiper does. Keep an eye out for Jason Avant (WR, Michigan) in the third round, though. A Ward prototype receiver. Runs good routes, has good hands, is tough and will block, not overly fast or athletic. Solid, though

I'm torn...is there that guy there at #32 that we HAVE to have regardless? I still think WR, and am sold on Nance, but is he too much of a reach at #32 and hopelessly gone at #64?
