Rams reportedly have decided that chris long is their man, carriker and long back to back...that line better deliver

Black@Gold Forever32
04-26-2008, 01:03 PM
Yea this waiting sucks *** Ktrain......With Chris Long being the Rams pick......So do the Falcons select Matt Ryan or Glenn Dorsey?...I think Ryan is the pick....Which makes the Raiders pick even more interesting if both McFadden and Dorsey are there at 4....

Steelers7fan
04-26-2008, 01:04 PM
the only reason why I want the Rams to take Dorsey is because if that happens than the draft starts changing and people not expected to drop, do exactly that. That's better news for us.

11 more picks before our turn and lots of offensive line talent still available! :yellowthumb:

So is Jonathon Stewart!

With every pick that is not an O-lineman our chances increase of getting Chris Williams, Ryan Clady or Branden Albert

If someone else grabs Albert the Steelers need to trade down fast for more picks.

I hope we trade down and draft James Hardy with one of our second round picks if the Steelers can work a trade to trade down....But I don't want Sweed in the first and I would be alright with Merling.....I hope its not Balmer, Campbell, Otah or Cherilus in the first.....

Quentin Groves, Merling would be the only players I would consider drafting at 23 at this point...

They're sayin' it's because he had way more carries. Even when he wasn't putting up stellar stats he still had over 8 yards/carry. I think that's pretty good. At least that's what espn said. I dn't really know much about him.

He did a lot more at Illinois than most give him credit for. I think he'll be great. He didn't get that much field time at Illinois till last year but he's got the stuff to make it from what i've seen.

Sounds good to me :yellowthumb: Totally looking to that 1 - 2 punch of Parker and Mendenhall coming out of the backfield :cope:

Whats not to love? I still like Willie Parker but I also like Rashard Mendenhall.....I'm very close to Illinois so I personally watched this kid on tv...I liked what I saw and didn't think he would sniff 23 and he shouldn't have...Plus the top OL were gone and none of the other players matched Mendenhall's value at 23...Sweed in the 2nd round was just gravy even though I had a man crush on James Hardy who was gone anyway...lol

Let me be the first to say that Ward is somewhere crying like a beyotch that we drafted a WR .... However, I'd also like to be the first to say "tough ****" .... deal with it. I love Ward as much as anybody, but lets be real .... he needs to consider taking a pay cut at some point if he wants to retire a Steeler.

http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b88/bradleystahl/HINES.jpg


Here's what Scout had to say about our 2 picks .... no question, both were HUGE value picks when we drafted them. Solid first day ....


3. RASHARD MENDENHALL, Illinois (5-10, 225, 4.42, 1) - Third-year junior didn't start until '07, when he gained 1,681 yards and was Big Ten offensive player of the year. "He's going to be a really, really good back," Buffalo VP of college scouting Tom Modrak said. "He's big, you don't catch him, he makes people miss." Straight-line style somewhat reminiscent of Herschel Walker. "He can't break down, cut and change direction," one scout said. "I was surprised how stiff he was. He takes a beating because he can't avoid people." Graduated from Niles West in Skokie, Ill., and scored 23 on the Wonderlic. "I think when adversity strikes he may fold tent," another scout said. "I don't see grinder mentality with him. I see analytical." Said a third scout: "I just don't know how he's wired. I don't know how competitive he is. I don't know how much he wants to take the beatin' he's going to take."

5. LIMAS SWEED, Texas (6-4, 210, 4.48, 2) - Started 39 of 43 games in four years. "If you just go on pure talent he's probably the best one in the draft," said Trent Baalke, San Francisco's director of player personnel. "He can do anything you want and he's big. He's a good kid, a country kid. But I feel bad for him because he started out the year playing so well." Nagged by a wrist injury and finally was forced to shut it down after six games, then underwent surgery on the wrist. "He's got long speed and quickness," Tennessee national scout C.O. Brocato said. Finished with 124 catches for 1,915 yards (15.4) and 20 TDs. "He's not as dynamic as Roy Williams," Tennessee scouting coordinator Blake Beddingfield said. "Really nice, natural hands."
