That's because this poll was written by someone who A) Knows little to nothing about the Steelers and B) Apparently knows little to nothing about evaluating NFL talent

Go for the best available player and don't look back...Steelers can take a Safety, OL, and if LenDale White is there, take a chance and snatch him up...They can just sit back and relax and take a player that won't cost too much...We seem to do pretty good late in the first round...

This became chronic when we lost Plaxico. The general perspective was that we were a franchise in decline. I'd be

How do these guys get paid anyway? Food stamps.

hmmm. interesting. i dont know who wrote the poll but

jason allen s/cb 29%- i havent seen anyone ranking ko simpson ahead of allen. infact ive seen alot of him ranked as the 3rd safety and #1 fs. 6'1" 209 ran a 4.39 (cb speed)

max jean giles g 17%- ive seen alot of him ranked as the top guard available.

manny lawson de/lb 18%-while teammate m. williams is considered a top 3 pick, lawson was selected as the teams mvp on the dl. 10.5 sacks 19.5 stops for losses in 2005 and 7 blocked kicks in his career. compared to jason taylor or javon kearse (not scrubs).

gabe watson dt 16%-"dominated the line of scrimmage so completely during sr. bowl practices he was held out of plays so that the offense could operate."

kameron wimbley de/lb 21%- 6'4" 248 4.61 "had 2 impressive games against 2 top ranked ot. debrickshaw furgeson (4 tackles including 2 sacks) and eric winston (5 tackles, 4 pressures, 1 sack)"

coming off a sb with most starters still in place we are in a good position to take the best player available. i disagree with the majority who voted for j. allen. i have a hard time thinking the 3rd safety taken in the 1st round will be the best athelete there. in most mocks ive seen atleast 4, if not all 5 of these players are gone by the time we pick.

If LenDale White is there, then grab him....If he's not there, trade the pick for more 2nd & 3rd rounders....

I don't know about that. The Steelers have never drafted for the best available player, they have picked for their needs. That approach has seemed to work out okay for the Steelers ;)
