I really believe that this was for Ben, we all thought with our offensive style that we were going RB all the way. Ben has lost Plax, and El in the last two season, they owe him somebody to go to for along time. These two can put some history together. And I think our offensive philosphy is changing. I think Holmes was for BEN!

S, DE, RB, or LB.. now that we have 2 picks, we saved some money come salary cap time by getting them later in the day, and hopefully can fill 2 areas of depth w/ quality players at a good price. S and LB is my guess the more I ponder this, but as tony mentioned in another post, there isnt that much available in the 3rd round for RB's that is that much better then what we can get on Day 2.

He wasn't even the best running back available at the time... If we went running back at that point, it would have been D'Angelo Williams, who will be an absolute STUD in the NFL

His style reminds me of Eddie George.

I think it's fairly obvious that we passed on White based on his character.

I wholeheartedly agree with you, Cleve. This year's draft is kinda making me think that the Steelers aren't going to rely on the running game quite as much as they have in the past. We now have huge weapons in Ben and our WR corp, although we do need to have an effective running game and I'm worried about it. It's both exciting and scary at the same time. We shall see how it all pans out.

I think the Steelers may have thought White was too problematic.
