I think we've already slipped inside the top 25. Perhaps a couple more losses like this will get us inside the top 20. :yesnod:

well they would probably just draft a failure like evander hood, it wouldnt be like the steelers if they didnt use that top 25 pick to reach for a second round prospect

I predict 11th pick. I want to see a good solid Kicker in the draft somewhere.

brandon spikes could be nice, they wouldnt make the logical pick of ciron black or bryan bulaga, but spikes is good lol

Perhaps Terrence Cody is coming within range? This team thinks its O-line is awesome. Just ask Ben or Bruce.

:hilarious:

cody would be my pick, but that would mean it would never happen. i think we would have to be worse than the dolphins to get cody

Hood actually played pretty good today,can't blame him for the coaches sucking.

not good enough for a first round pick, his production so far his career is mirroring ryan mcbean

Need to start by drafting an OC!

My concern with Cody would be with his weight. He is a beast and a big fat slob.

Yes a first round pick,but remember he was a DE in a 4-3, he's now trying to learn how to be a OLB in a 3-4 not an easy transition

Anyone thinking he would come in and be a star,doesn't understand our defense.

well not only do i have a thorough understanding of the defense, im about to make you look like an idiot

evander hood was not a 43 DE in college and hes not trying to be an OLB in a 34. he was a 43DT and is trying to be a 34DE, which he is not cut out to do at all. Hes an interior pass rusher, not an every down 34 end that cant get pushed around in the run game. i didnt want a ton of sacks, but maybe being good enough to beat out eason with our top 2 guys out would be nice. being 4th on the depth chart isnt good for a first round pick, he was an awful pick unless we make a full time switch to a 43

Terrence Cody, Brandon Spikes or, this may come as a shock to some of you, C.J. Spiller...he would be an instant upgrade in our return game and would be an excellent complement to Rashard.

i wouldnt be shocked at spiller, he could be our felix jones and is an absolutely elite return man

however i would prefer dwyer....who is pure beast

Cody will land no where near us. The league is in an overhaul for 3-4 NTs.

There will be no salary cap next year, however. So we may be able to keep Fat Hampton.

theres some extremely talented DTs this year that are better than cody and a bunch that are just below him....teams might not wanna reach for a fat slob if they can get a phil taylor (whos better anyway) or a kendrick ellis, and dan williams and al woods later on

i love cody, but not everyone does

Dwyer is a monster but I think Mendy and CJ would be our "thunder and lighting" that mendy and Willie were supposed to be

CJ is by far my favorite player coming out

but if we don't land spiller, I would be ok if they got DeMarco Murray in te 3rd-4th
