That's what I thought when we took Spence in the 3rd. If they wanted to get a dominant NT that could play right away they would of had to get him in the first round, being that they didn't, I wonder if they have chose to address other issues and go NT 1st or 2nd next year, being that Hampton will be back another year and McClendon is ok.

With all due respect, it should tell you a lot more than that about his potential as an NFL pro, much less a successful one.

So you are going to disregard a whole body of work by Ta'amu based on one game where he was opposite a guard regarded as the best prospect in the last 10 years?

Not that Ta'amu is going to be a hall of famer, but he is the best available NT for 3-4 left.

As a fan, I surely hope I'm wrong about him. Obviously the Steelers think something of him to move up to get him in the 4th round
