We REALLY NEED a strong Bull Rush player. Harrison played hurt in the SB......that explains a lot. But we arent breaking down the protection any more. If we cant get a corner....then a strong pass rusher is a must. Lessens the need for a shutdown corner too.

The P brothers have stated that they would like to play together. At some point, that is probably going to happen. Does anyone know how much that might affect to a GM's decision to draft him?

If I was a GM on another team, I would think that potentially losing him after 4 or 5 years would impact my decision to draft him. Maurkice isn't going anywhere and the lure of the Steelers organization is huge. Everyone knows right now that Mike has his fingers crossed that the Steelers draft him. So, the potential of him being slightly disgruntled right off the bat is another factor.

Of course, if a team needs a guard and feels he is the best available they are going to take him. And of course, signing a contract worth several millions of dollars makes the negatives less so.

Any one have similar thoughts?

Not only that but is OG our biggest problem on the OL
or shouldn't we be looking at upgrading one of the worst
OT units in the league? Remember back in the day when
we had decent OTs? Sure was nice.

Hey, i would have nothing against taking him if he's still available. Cb would be great though.
