Default Combine Focus Rapid Reprots

Latest Steelers RapidReports
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/rapid-reports/team/PIT

44 minutes ago - A Combine focus, Part III: OTs Nate Solder and Gabe Carimi tried OG in Senior Bowl workouts, with mixed results. The Steelers prefer flexibility. “Intelligence and versatility is not unique to us,” Kevin Colbert said. “You have to have enough guys who can play [multiple] positions to cover yourself in any game.” Baylor’s Danny Watkins and Villanova’s Benjamin Ijalana are OG-OTs potentially available in second round. Steelers RapidReports

45 minutes ago - A Combine focus, Part II: Asked to name the draft’s single strength, Kevin Colbert said: “I think the tackle group is better.” At OT, Colorado’s Nate Solder and Wisconsin’s Gabe Carimi figure to be gone by the Steelers’ pick at No. 31, so that could leave Mississippi State’s athletic and smart Derek Sherrod. Steelers RapidReports

47 minutes ago - A Combine focus: The OT position is less than stable, with Willie Colon being a free agent, Flozell Adams contemplating retirement and longtime left tackle Max Starks returning from neck surgery. The line hasn’t been a Steelers strongpoint for years, either. No coincidence that the Steelers consider this a draft class deep in OTs? Steelers RapidReports

I'd be fine with Sherrod at the end of the 1st round. I dont know if Watkins is gonna be around at #63. Too much of a mauler with upside to slide that far I think, but great if we can get him.

Ijalana scares me as an OT prospect. Small school guy could be a risky move to go with unless he's a 2nd round pick or later I think. Could be more of a guard that can play OT if needed.
