Did you guys watch any of the bowl games and if so did it change your view on certain players that the steelers could possibly draft?

I've watched a bunch of bowl games. Ogletree is a great athlete at the linebacker spot. Matt Elam really lays the wood like clark. I didn't see much of the lsu game but I've read the reports that mingo played exceptional. Alex Okafor from texas was a sack machine in his bowl game. Later round guy who surprised me was margus hunt from.smu. He's 6' 8 280 and is a relentless pass rusher. He was originally predicted to be a mid round pick but after his bowl game his stock is rising. But knowing the steelers front office you just never know who they are targeting

Personally I say:
Rd 1: Alex Okafor, DE/OLB
2: Monte Ball, RB
3: Baccari Rambo, S
4: QB
5: TE
6: ILB
7: WR or S

I hate to over-react, but I would love to see the Steelers draft Margus Hunt. He reminds me of JJ Watt so much. But I admit, I only saw the one game, so who knows, but he was a beast out there. 6'8", 280 lbs, 4.6 40, amazing. Wonder how the Steelers feel about him...

Watched Monte Ball live in the Rose Bowl. Nothing he did was that spectacular but he is definitely solid.

Okafor is the kind of player who may slip to second round after the combine. If the Steelers want to take him, I hope they trade down.

Yes and considering that RB's are somewhat devalued in todays NFL. He may be still sitting there in round 3.

Sad thing is that I think Mendenhall has better skills than Ball, but he cant seem to stay out of the Tomlin doghouse.

If the Steelers draft an OLB then I hope it's an OLB, not a DE they hope to change into a OLB.

Okafor? How would he be in pass coverage and setting the edge? I don't want another Woodley.

Teo, the most overrated player in the history of CFB.

And he is getting schooled in this BCS game.
