I think the Steelers will lay off Lawson...the bad taste of Alonzo Jackson isn't out of their mouth yet.

Bing is attractive, and USC has already panned out once for us in the defensive backfield.

I think we can forget about Moss.

Carpenetr or Whitner would work, although we tend not to start LB's in their first year with us since our 3-4 takes some seasoning.

I'm off the White bandwagon.

Addai I don't see at all.

Demetrius Williams is showing as late RD 2 on a lot of draft boards.

I picked "other" just to be different.

i picked white cause i don't even know anymore.....i'm so confused lol, i don't care anymore, i just hope duce can stay healthy cause willie is gonna need some one to cover his ass again this season.

i don't like mangold, i wouldn't mind bobby or whitner but i doubt they'll be there at 32, moss is a midget, i did like him for a while but not anymore, i rather draft hester in the later rounds for the punt returner and draft nance in the second or third if he drops that low for a wr...

i don't know who manny lawson is so i wouldn't pick him, i wouldn't mind bing either, i don't really like adai, the only back i want in the first would be lendale but i don't really even want that anymore lol and i don't know who Demetrius Williams is either

hell i guess i should've just put other and said rodrique wright, it would be nice to have two longhorns holding down the d-line

lol is ok Koopa, during draft they show higlights of the player and their stats so you will get to know them. but your right.. is very confusing as to whom the Steelers are gonna take.

But we aren't in that horrible of shape at OL if you think about it. We have Hartings and Okobi at C, and Okobi can back up either OG if one gets injured. We also have Kimo II waiting in the wings behind Simmons. At Tackle, we have Essex who performed admirably for a rookie playing LT, to back up either position, and there's a couple other young guys on the team whom the Steelers will nurture along. There's also always the option of moving Faneca out in a pinch.

Carpenter was my choice. Always need depth at the LB spot. Especially in a 3-4 Defense.

To give you an idea of just how unsure people are about #32, I just did a Google search for "NFL Mock Draft" and out of the first 6 I looked at, I saw:

Moss
Greenway
Carpenter
Mangold
LenDale White
Whitner

No kidding!!! This feels like the beginning of the second week before the Super Bowl. And here is another "Jerome is from Detriot" story for the umpteenth time.

I picked Carpenter, because behind our starting OLB, I believe only in James Harrison - and Haggans often misses games...
And I just can't see the Steelers draft a 3rd center, after re-signed Okobi (and don't forget that Jeff Hartings can play one more season... at least!). I think we have enough young linemen with Essex, Starks and Kemoeatu. And Okobi has few experience. Yes we could have more depth, but I think we just need a veteran, as an insurance.
