Default Re: NT Poe visits, could be Steelers No. 1 pick

Poe's stock, after dipping, appears to be going way up again. Almost with certainty, he's projected to go from number 11 to as low as number 15 and maybe even sooner. This is a moot point.

Yes, we still have Hampton, but the chances are pretty good that he will miss the first 6 games of the upcoming season. That coupled with the fact that he was less than impressive last year tells me that NT is a position of great need in this draft. McClendon is the only other NT on the roster.
I like Ta'amu also. Almost hope Poe is gone before us, then take either Hightower, Glenn, or Zeitler. Second round take Ta'amu and then go from there.

That pretty much covers any player ever picked in the first round of any draft.

well yeah, any player can go "len bias" i guess, but i think the point is that if there are any obvious question marks or red flags, a team is better off safe than sorry.

pretty much the same reasoning that the steelers went with jerricho cotchery as opposed to randy moss.

I'm not saying we will draft Poe bit I gurentee we draft a NT in one of the first 3 rounds and probrobably 1st or 2nd. Hampton will be done after this season and we need a replacement now because we don't like to start rookies unless there is a injury.
so would you say the Pouncey pick was for future, not immediate need? because we were set with, oh lets see who was it at the time.. justin hartwig?

i get what you mean, but keep in mind that sometimes there is immediate need, and the draft pick just seems to progress enough to start. just like pouncey did.

you never know, if hightower is picked, he might just outplay foote in training camp and start.

and i dont think they should draft poe. at first i did, but now i see his playing videos, and doesnt impress me. you'd figure with all that strength he could blow through anyone, but he just doesnt.

The Steelers know far more about Poe than any of us do. If he's available at 24, then we'll know what they learned from watching him work out for them.

Default Re: NT Poe visits, could be Steelers No. 1 pick

people and scouts make to much of his lack of stats/production on paper
he played for a bad program, with terrible coaching...he went to memphis because thats where hes from and wanted to play for his hometown college

REALLLLLY watch the tape. he is a disruptive football player. with good coaching and some better technique he will anchor and command double teams in the NFL. he can clog lanes and let LB's fly to the ball carrier. thats what the steelers are looking for in their 3-4.

i doubt he falls to 24 though

1 sack. 8 tackles for a loss. out of hundreds and hundreds of snaps. not really too disruptive.

stats are a product of your play. and if he lacked stats/production in a low talented conference where he should have dominated. that raises the red flag for me.

dont get me wrong, i love his raw talent. just not sold on the guy. dont think hed command double teams. college o-linemen and NFL o-linemen are totally different.
