that argument only last a year and you have used it plenty.......this will be willie's second year starting, so it's not fair to compare him to rookies that haven't touched an nfl football, you got to compare him to cadillac, ronnie, cedric, maybe even kevin jones, julius jones.....but not this years running backs

Randle El was our # 2 last year and only had 35 catches and 1 TD receiving. I am not sure would be worth taking a Wideout so early for production i feel that Wilson, Morgan/ Washington / taking a 3rd of 4th rouner could do the same.
sandwiched between denvers #15 and 27? pick is pats and then carolina. i dont think lendale makes it past this gauntlet. looking at his resume makes me wish he would. (theres an inherrent risk if he becomes a superstar. how much money does he command and does he hold out or become a distraction to get it?

there were questions of how plex's numbers would be replaced. i always thought the combo of heath, el, and, c. wilson could easilly do it for about the same price.

smart, sb winning, cap balancing part on the steelers part. the steelers not only look at how good a player will be but how will that player fit into their projected cap structure 3-4 years down the road.

Yeah I also feel that way.

I say a big back, around the third round!

Did I hear that punters were benching more than he was? And he is now being compared to Clarrett? Damn I sure hope not. If any of this is even close to being true, the Steelers would have none of it.

I doubt White even lasts until the Carolina pick. He's from Denver, and the scuttlebutt is that the Bronco's have promised a "player originally from Denver" that they would pick him at #15.

Might also explain why he seemed only half-heartedly interested in performing for other teams in the offseason.

theres also word that a team almost encouraged him not to run for fear of his value going even higher, putting him out of their range. tatum bell and him would be one hell of a combo.

With the signing of Harrison to a 4 year deal, i am thinking a RB will be taking in first two rounds. Staley will get more carries than Bettis did this past year and i have a feeling that he will be running the ball more than most think. Staley will run into problems i am sure since he could have some trouble running up that middle. Staley will be fresh since he hasnt played alot in a year and a half and when healthy he is pretty damn good. i posted elsewhere i think we will go OL, RB, WR first three rounds of this draft since we signed Harrison till 2009. Not sure who will be available at RB for us, I would like Moroney or White to fill that role for us.

If everyone gone in first round as projected, I think will be a OL we take, then best WR or RB availabe for the next two rounds and 3 picks in 4th will give us even more depth at OL/ S/ CB/ plus two picks in 5th which we can still take a quality OL/ DE /NT and 6th and 7th where we may need that we didnt address.... I am thinking this is going to be a great draft !!!!!!! wooooooooooohoooooooooo

yea know the more i get into the draft each year the more i realize Mel Kiper doesnt know his A55 form a hole in the ground. yea sure i could pick the first 3 maybe 5 hell even 10 if im lucky. but when you get into the bottom of the round he is so far off sometimes its funny. let get one thing straight: PITTSBURGH WILL NOT TAKE ANYONE FROM "DA U". felons, drugdealers, murderers and overall dirtballs will go to the ravens . last time i checked Mami isnt really know for their players having character(Sean Taylor, Kellon Winslow Jr. is the first few to come to mind thinking of this season past)......lol

and as far as duce goes......lol we Are taking a running back in the first few rounds LOL
