Default Woiuld you be upset if we went OL at 17?

With all the needs at other positions and with the amount of highly graded Offensive Lineman in this draft, if the Steelers dont trade down, would you be upset if we drafted an OL like Womack, Cooper or Fluker?

i think the position we are best set at is OL but to add top talent there may be hard to pass up.

what are your thought?

I'd like to see us draft for another position, but if one of the three that you mentioned is there at 17 I couldn't pass them up.

I would be upset at any position other than LT. For the last 6 years the team has drafted offense one year and defense the next. I don't expect that to change.

Yep. We don't need any positions on the OL. Again, we haven't seen how our guys play yet as a unit and we're already looking to improve. To me, that makes no sense. Give the young guys that are already on our roster a chance to play.

I would be terribly upset if we went OL again. The Steelers lost a top receiver, have a weak running game, and one of the worst turnover ratios in the NFL. What we really need are some play-makers.

Yes, because he would get injured eventually and the pick becomes a giant bagel. Steelers need an instant playmaker.

I'd be a little upset unless Warmack is there and literally anyone else we'd consider (Vaccaro, Jones, Mingo, Patterson, Austin) is gone. I know we do BPA but at some point you have to cross out some positions and do BPA at positions of need and honestly, after QB, OL is probably what we need the least. Warmack or Cooper would be nice but Foster is fine and we've already spent two first rounders and two second rounders on the OL in recent years.

This OL corps of Gilbert, Pouncey, DeCastro, and Adams hasn't even developed and jelled yet and it's already arguably one of our greatest strengths. That's a major problem and tells you there are other positions that need a serious injection of talent/youth.

I think many of you are looking at our oline with rose colored glasses. ON PAPER, it seems like it would be a solid group..but DeCastro and Adams struggled and did not look like amazing linemen we thought they'd be based on draft status. DeCastro obviously was injured but he didn't impress once he came back. Pouncey is good but he gets nicked a lot. Basically we have no LT who is a sure fire blind side protector you need for Ben. Of course if one of the really good LT falls you grab him. But I suspect they won't and we go defense. Taking a OG is unacceptable as this draft is so deep you can get one in later rounds imho
