I was hoping that Pitt would trade down and get Hood and Gilbert, But Buffalo got Wood and Clev got Mack....
Kiper said he's not surprised Hood went here,( 28th rated player) Pitt needs to get younger on the DL and I agree! ( glad no corner was picked up by Pitt)
He said that wr Bey going to oakland was A MASSIVE REACH by al davis!!!
get him out of there he's got alzheimers and he's just plain STUPID ANYMORE!!!

Pitt doesn't need a ILB they are doing good with Timmons, Foote and Farrior
Farrior is getting up there but still has 2-3 years left
Foote is solid
Timmons looks like he's gonna be a stud!

a little surprised that malauaga is stillon the board going into early 2nd round!

This pick makes a lot of sense, our DL is not getting any younger and Hood can get into the rotation and learn as he goes. He won't have to start but atleast we have top prospect to start grooming for the future.

let me just say timmons isnt the kind of MLB were gonna need, hes awesome, but thats because he plays next to farrior who is a 34 MLB and can blow up guards....maualuga is that kind of player, in that same mold.

hood will fail on this team...NOT HAPPY

they can just go ahead and cut him now, save us 3-4 years of failure

You also have to figure that Foote is going to be gone soon to.

I was hoping they'd go DL at some point. Good work on this pick.

Exactly. This pick tells me they realize that our DL is getting a little long in the tooth. We need someone that can come in, learn the system, and be ready to step in at any moment should one of our aging starters go down.

Not exactly what I was hoping for in the 1st round, but a safe pick nonetheless.

Pretty good pick Hood has a high ceiling and will fit in well with our d line. Everybody needs to relax because the Steelers have a lot of picks left. And sometimes as we all know the best picks are the ones you get in the later rounds...

steelerfan11
04-25-2009, 08:29 PM
Hood is projected as a DE that CAN'T stop the run!


according to http://nflfromthesidelines.blogspot.com/

The steelers are trying to trade up in the second to take Unger.

I don't like Unger...but thats me

K Train
04-25-2009, 08:32 PM
oher plummeted to 23 and they couldnt make a move? really? and now hes a raven....sweet.

this is not a safe pick at all, he will ride the bench until we ultimately cut him

Callax
04-25-2009, 08:38 PM
I'd like to see Pitt get DE Jerron Gilbert, But that would be 2 DL in the first 2 picks....
that would be neglecting our OL, I believe thet will either go after OT Warren Beatty Connecticut, C Unger or OT Phil Loadholt Oklahoma

You have no clue about Hood. Honestly, you just don't like the pick so, of course, it's all gloom and doom. Hood isn't even close to McBean .... McBean was lazy and didn't take to coaching too well. Hood is a "high motor" guy that plays out of his mind. A good fit for our defensive mindset.

I'm not shocked Oher slipped to 23 since I mentioned it months ago he would fall to the 20s.....I wish the Steelers would have traded up for Oher also but they didn't....Nothing we can do at this point...As soon as Hood's name was announced I thought of you and how much you hated the pick of Hood....

hood would only be effective in a tampa 2....he will fail in a 34..its a very picky position

hood would barely make my top 50 list and he would be left off the 34 eligible players completely....i really thought better of the steelers front office. cant wait to see him fail.

they must have thought he had a cool nickname so he must be fun to be around on the sideline when hes riding the bench making first round bank

Black@Gold Forever32
04-25-2009, 08:51 PM
I wasn't thrilled with Hood either....But the Steelers needed to add youth along the DL.....Like ICS said Hood does have a high motor and never quits.....Plus he was the only player worth a damn along Missouri's front 7 and he still produced.....I wanted Gilbert and question if Hood can be a DE in a 3-4....He sure isn't a NT so he would have to play DE.....I'm willing to give the guy a chance.....

igor0190
04-25-2009, 09:08 PM
I'm definately happy they didnt reach for Unger at 32. He just does not seem like a great athlete from the tape i've seen. Bad feet. Ziggy looks like the kind of player who will fit well at DE in our defence and I'm sure that is why we drafted him.
Hopefully we can snag Beatty or Loadholt with our next pick.

MOVE UP STEELERS!

K Train
04-25-2009, 09:10 PM
im not, i remain strong on my stance of disappointment, this is wayyy worse than taking bruce davis. i figure hes gonna fail so the sooner he does the sooner we can move on. i wont be acknowledging him as a steeler for the upcoming season lol

ItAintEasyBeingPeazy
04-25-2009, 09:10 PM
I'm not gonna rake this guys balls until i see him play after we coach him up in our system...i'll give him a chance,we definately needed youth and at the very least he gives us that.

Sir Blitzelot
04-25-2009, 09:17 PM
I am pleased with the pick of Ziggy. He will add some depth to the aging defensive line, and with his high enegy type of play, he should be quite effective in the 3-4 defense. Keep up the good work Steelers! :yellowthumb:

yeah a smurf dlineman that cant take on blockers or stop the run? hes a penetrating 43 DT, not a block eating, run stuffing 34 DE. it took keisel years to learn how to play the position at a somewhat respectable level.....keisel will never blow you away and hood isnt the type of player that is gonna push him for playing time at all

I'll call it now and say that Pitt will draft in no particular order:
DE Jerron Gilbert
WR Mike Thomas or WR Derrick Williams
OT Gerald Cadogen
BUT I would not be surprised if they went after CB DJ Moore from Vanderbilt ( short but a steal in the late 3rd round)

Evander "Ziggy" Hood


Height: 6-3 | Weight: 300 | Position:DT | College: Missouri

Overview:

The secondary was the obvious weak link of the Tigers' defense the past two years, but with Hood in the trenches Missouri more than held its own up front. That unit allowed only 124.86 yards per game rushing in 2008, ranking second in the Big 12 Conference and 12th in the nation in tackles for loss, registering an average of 7.43 stops behind the line of scrimmage per game.

Called by head coach Gary Pinkel, "the most tenacious player on the team," Hood lived up to that reputation. Despite constantly battling double-team coverage, he collected 10 sacks, 15 stops behind the line of scrimmage and 16 quarterback pressures the last two seasons as the team's starting weak-side defensive tackle.

Hood was a highly-regarded athlete who excelled on defense and also played tight end for Palo Duro High School. He ranked as the No. 35 weak-side defensive end in the nation, according Rivals.com, and was named District 3-4A Defensive Player of the Year as a senior, when he registered 93 tackles and 13 sacks.

That season, Hood also scored three defensive touchdowns and recovered three fumbles. He earned All-District honors each of his last two years. He registered 76 tackles as a junior, including five sacks and also returned an interception for a touchdown. In addition to football, he threw the shot and discus for his school's track team.

Hey I think Hood will upgrade our inside pass rush in our sub package defenses.......Hood is high character player with a non stop motor....classic Steeler player.......I'm confident the Steelers coaches and Aaron Smith can mold Ziggy into a 3-4 DE......Plus he might play some NT from time to time.....Hood compares in size with Jay Ratliff the DE from the Cowboys.....Doesn't Ratliff also play some NT at times for the Cowboys?....I know the Cowboys 3-4 is different from the Steelers 3-4 but just saying I think Hood can make the transition to 3-4 DE.....

ratliff sucks at NT, he got 8 sacks last year but as a whole he held them back because hes an interior rusher and his best spot on their line was at DE....they had no true NT and they run a different version of the 34 but NT is equally important, he failed...you dont want your NT rushing the passer to get there sometimes, you want your NT to gobble up blockers so your LBs can get there all the time

I like Hood, I think he is teachable and a hard working guy. That is 2 key components to making a player good. They Steelers didnt use anywhere near all of their 10 minutes on the clock for Hood. They must have knew they wanted him or at least he was on the board. I do find it interesting that there is this much complaining. I would just like to know, how many complained when the Steelers took Timmons and Woodley, and then, even though it remains to be seen, Mendenhall and Sweed. It has been my experience that a whole lot of people complain about the picks, UNTIL WE WIN THE SUPERBOWL, and then the picks are fine. This team knows what it is doing. I dont always understand the picks, but I dont hate them.

I dont HATE the Hood pick. He doesn't seem to be a 3-4 DL, but I do have faith in Tomlin. McBean was a Cowher pick, and Cowher at that point just didnt seem to give a **** about his young players.

Give the dude a few years, seems like he has the right build to play all 3 spots on the line. He is an upgrade over Nick Eason, and hopefully in a few years he steps up and replaces someone on the line.

I think that you should put together who you would've drafted out of the available players at each of the Steelers picks. Then in 2-3 years someone can bring this post up and we can compare and see who would've had the better draft!

With some proof that you are right maybe you could become a NFL Scout??? You seem to be knowledgable on many college players.

All the years that I have been a fan....I have come to realize that every draft there is players that I really liked and wanted the Steelers to draft which they passed on and those players turned out to be bums....On the other hand there has been players that I hated and they turned out to be super stars or quality players.....The draft is never an exact science.....

I was high on Kordell Stewart when he was drafted in the second round back in 1995....lol I was also stoked when the Steelers traded up for Ricardo Colclough back in 2004...lol

Most of the first round picks I have been on board with throughout the years.....But I hated the first round picks of Jamain Stephens, Troy Edwards, and Kendall Simmons.....I wans't thrilled with the trade up for Troy Polamalu in 2003....lol You know I wasn't thrilled with Timmons at first back in 2007.....

I loved the first round picks of Burress, Hampton, Big Ben, Miller, Holmes, Mendenhall.......

I wasn't thrilled at first about Hood but I'm warming up to him and going to give the Hood a chance......

Ziggy seems like a good player, But I'm worried about his size. The whole point of a NT in a 3-4 is to take up blockers for your LB's. Ziggy is 6'1 300 pounds. I don't see him taking up 2 guys.

I got a question, what do you guys think about the browns draft. Be honest.

My thoughts. At first I was disappointed because I wanted some pass rush or ray mags. ray ended up dropping and dropping so i guess other teams seen a problem with his pass rush, and drop back ability to. But then I stepped back and thought about it.

Alex mack is the best center in the draft, and will most likely be a brown for many years. add that with thomas and steinbach, looks pretty good.

robo is 6'3, great hands and runs the best routes in the draft. People say he is to slow, But he kinda reminds me of hines ward without the blocking ability. With the hands and route running.

Then of course they took another WR, couple LB's, 2 CB's and a RB. The running back they got put up 1700 yards and 17TDs 2 years ago.

i hate mack, always have. wood was the best center int he draft....i just said in the other thread mangini had a man crush on mangold in NY....that being said the browns are a good fit for him because they legit have a top 3 oline around him

robiskie was a sensational pick.....most polished, pro ready WR in the draft, hes got solid speed, terrific hands and runs crisp diciplined routes. and hes got a big tall body to go with it, that hines ward comparison isnt far off.....i would have rather used 32 on him than ziggy

browns also draft coye francies right? awesome corner, a legit 2nd round talent that fell way further than he should have

ya francies, He got kicked out of his last school for some reason and had to transfer. That could also be a big reason why he fell so late. big guy with alot of emotion(talks alot of trash). If he pans out, then he could be a breathe of fresh air for the browns.
