He was the third-string LG from Wichita State Dog-Grooming College. You've never heard if him???

Sorry guys, you don't pass on a possible all-time great player because of need/fit unless its a qb/fb/kicker

If Cooper or Warmack are there you snap them up

Not really. It all starts from the oline.

NI wouldn't be upset if someone "fell" to us that we just could not pass up. I just think there are more pressing needs. And after saying that, I would probably feel that there was someone else on the board I would have rather have. But, hey what do I know...

Strengthening the OL is the right call when the BPA is an offensive lineman. There are several reasons for this...

1st) A great OL extends plays allowing Ben to do what he does best...make the big play or move the chains.

2nd) Makes our receivers better by giving them more time to get open.

3rd) Makes our running backs better by opening up better holes.

4th) Helps sustain drives thus giving our defense more time to rest.

5th) Can demoralize a team that either "can't stop the run" or "can't get the Ben".

If either Cooper or Warmack is available with the 17th pick...it would be a mistake to not pick them.

It all starts with the OL, and it's clear that we still have problems, even if everyone is healthy. First, note that Foster is probably a starter at LG, and we all know that he's not a legitimate NFL starter. Second, both Gilbert and Adams need to show improvement. Although I have high hopes for Adams, it's never a sure thing; his pass blocking must improve. And Gilbert's big step backwards in his second year is a cause for concern; you never want to see a second year player regress, and his poor conditioning is really a big red flag. I believe that DeCastro has already shown that he's the real thing. Beachum has potential, so that helps to address the fears, at least somewhat.

Although I love the recent investment in the OL, we're not there yet. It's really difficult to climb out of such a deep hole.

Obviously someone will bring this post up Thursday night after we pick so let me get my wordin. I iI gurentee we do not draft a guard round 1. There is no way the Steelers will draft back to back guards in round 1 when they haveholes everywhere. We can argue all week but in the end you will see.

I want fluker. He is a mean sumbitch. You want the badass Steeler mentality back? Drafting that guy is a hell of a start.
