If at the 17th pick the BPA is an offensive lineman I hope we go that way.

You can never have enough and we certainly don't have enough.

Have I mentioned it would be great if we drafted Jonathan Cooper before? The kid can play!

It's hard to win a championship without a good oline. A great OL can resolve a lot of other issues.

If Warmack or Cooper fall to us I don't see us pass them up. We'd finally have a 5 I'm confident about going into next season. Although I don't think it will happen, I do think there are a couple, particularly zone blocking OT's in later rounds of this draft that could add the depth you can never have too much of at the position

Jarvis Jones or Warmack/ Cooper

I take Jones without thinking twice.

Jarvis Jones has a health question mark and doesn't hit the weight room. I don't think he will ever fill Harrison's shoes.

Cooper or Warmack would be good, but doubtful either drops to us. Joeckel, Fisher, and Johnson will likely be gone at OT as well.

There is such a huge drop-off in OL's after round one, though. I can see us getting OL later on in rds 5 or 6, but not sooner if those top 5 don't drop to us.

We could get a guy like OT Terron Armstead in round 3 or 4 which would be great for a new zone-blocking scheme as well as protection for Ben. He will need a year or two to develop some skill and strength, though. That means we may have to find a way to keep Starks.

Cooper is to VaDave as Elam* is to Teegre.

*(although, I'm currently also mentioning Austin equally as much)

Elam, Austin and Teegre. Sounds like a hell of a law firm.

Steelers talk with Foster’s agent before free agency opens

March 9th, 2013
Mark Kaboly | Tribune-Review



Steelers guard Ramon Foster is an unrestricted free agent.

The Steelers had contract discussions with Ramon Foster’s agent, Joel Segal, on Thursday and will eventually make the unrestricted free agent offensive lineman an offer once the organization gets a better grasp on their current finances, said a source with knowledge of the meeting.

However, that offer may come too late and significantly under market value in order to retain Foster. Arizona, Chicago and Tennessee have shown interest in the 27-year-old guard. The N.Y. Giants could also be a potential suitor if they can’t re-sign Kevin Boothe.

Because of a new rule, agents are allowed to start formal talks with other teams starting three days before the start of the new NFL calendar year (12:01 a.m. Saturday) which is set for 4 p.m. Tuesday.

No signing can be announced until the opening of free agency if a deal is reached.

The 6-foot-5, 325-pound Foster has been a regular on the Steelers offensive line since being an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee in 2009.

Foster started 30 consecutive games at guard and 42 of 44 including Super Bowl XLV since being inserted into the lineup for a Week 10 game against the Patriots in 2010.

Foster has been extremely durable at a position that’s been injury prone for the Steelers in recent years. Foster missed only the second half of the season-opener against Denver with a severe headache before playing the final 966 snaps of the year at right guard.

According to ProFootballFocus, Foster allowed only two sacks the entire season – the least of all Steelers starters.

Foster signed a 1-year tender for $1.26 million last year as a restricted free agent after not getting much interest on the open market. He became expendable when the Steelers used a first round draft pick on right guard David DeCastro and decided to move Willie Colon and his recently signed 5-year, $29 million contract to left guard within a month of each other.

However, Foster started all 16 games last year when DeCastro was injured during the preseason.
