Default Will we draft a NT?

Or will Ziggy move there? If he doesn't move to the nose, when will Heyward become a starter?

Would you be OK with a 2012 draft which include no nose tackle?

I might think the Steelers will move up in this round to get a NT, maybe Ta'amu or Chapman

If we lose our chance at Ta'amu or Chapman, (I would think if either is there in the 4th we would take one of them) I think they can actually pick up Nicolas Jean Baptiste very late and even Ishmaa’ily Kitchen, of Kent State in the 7th or as a UDFA

Next year's draft if very deep at NT candidates and the team may just be willing to wait it out and get by with Hampton, McClendon, and a late round pick.

My original mock draft I have us taking Fangupo at #4. Either 3-4 NT will do at this point in the draft. Value is there but if it's Fangupo without making any trades, I'd be happy.

If we take a DT or two and a QB I'm happy.

I don't understand all the love for Ta'amu. Here's more proof:
