I think we can all agree we like Earl Thomas at 18 and i cannot stand reading anymore about it, so ... Who are the guys you would like to see that you consider yourself a leader or co-leader of the movement? I think this thread would be fun to come back to in the future .. also, kim that this does not have to a list of future HOF's , just guys you want to see as Steelers and that you have been pimpin' ...

My guys:

1. Dexter M^fin McCluster
2. Demaryius Thomas, aka Bay-Bay
3. Legarette Blount

Again, not necessarily superstars .. and try to keep it to less known names, meaning try to stay away from the Cody's, Spikes, etc

We really screwed up last year with the CB picks...

Thats the part of the draft last year that is killing us this year.

Gay was the only other CB drafted in the last 4 years.

We really need to get a FA CB, Maybe we are just not that good at drafting CB's

Kyle Wilson may be a pick..

Weatherspoon, McClain, Graham, Pouncey maybe...

--- Added 4/2/2010 at 09:43 AM ---

CB/Safety news.

If traded to Cleveland, Brown would presumably start opposite Eric Wright, with Brandon McDonald playing nickel corner. Adding Brown could also alter the Browns' draft strategy, as reports out of Cleveland in recent weeks have indicated that the Browns are very interested in using the seventh overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft on Florida cornerback Joe Haden.

I like Ziggy Hood and every-time he was in the game he got better. Remember they usually dont let there DL play for years with the exception of Casey Hampton.
The should of drafted Unger in the 1st, Jaron Gilbert in the 2nd and Wallace in the 3rd.

They Like Joe Burnett as a Nickel and we haven't seen what Keenan Lewis can do yet to say thats what's killing us.
Is it me or did Mike Tomlin last year seem like he was playing childish games with some of these guys? I know we dont like to play rookies that much but we needed to see what the CB's could do.
Anyone for bringing in Lito Shepard?

2007 was the best draft and they shouldn't of let Mcbean go. When you list them together it lets you know just how bad they did. THey like Rashon Harris so we'll see what happens with him. It was nice to take the hometown kid but nows he's in Philly.lol

the killin us was... the fact that we only have those three draft picks for 4 years.

last years picks get three years to be great. in my mind...

it is gay's time, right now. we shall see with troy back how gay and farrior do in 2010.

if you go back and watch the games when Burnett was in the QB would look his way and then had to redirect often because burnett had his man covered .. i definitely have a positive bias for burnett because i am a UCF fan, but i know what he is capable of and it is more enticing than what keenan lewis has shown so far easily ..

The main problem is that the front 7 didn't get to the QB and it left our CB's(who never were the greatest) exposed. The Injury to Aaron Smith killed us because he can collapse the pocket orHold the point of attack to open up lanes for the LB's and he can get pressure on the QB. NOW throw in losing Troy and Farrior age showing.

04-02-2010, 04:54 PM
The more I think about it I want to trade Holmes to Miami or someone in the top ten. Draft Earl T early and move back pickup an additional 2nd then draft a CB. We can pick up a WR & OL or LB in the second. OR Rolando Mcclain if he's there and hope Earl T is there at 18 or move up for him also. LIke you guys have said we have xtra picks so lets trade them and get quality over quantity.

I like Burnett and think he's going to be a great nickel. He made it onto the field so he getting use to the playbook and should improve.
The only thing they keep saying is that the Steelers can get a CB in the 3rd. I think they need on of the top ones in the 1st or 2nd depending on what happens with the 1st pick.

i think since hes so tight in coverage and really locks down that he he will be a nice career nickel back....hes not the best tackler but hes tiny

i dunno if holmes is worth a first rounder?

if the lions got what they did for roy williams and the skins offered 2 first rounders for chad johnson, and the patriots got a first for deion branch (holmes is way better than branch AND has an SBMVP as well) then i would say we could get a first round pick for holmes

but if ya feel me id rather send holmes to a NFC team.

I just want earl thomas lol i have prayed every night since the combine and will do so until we hopefully draft him :(:(:(

lmao this wasn't suppose to be a earl thomas thread but turned into one lol.

A couple of other guys i would be interested in seeing is:

Geno Atkins - He may not fit perfectly in the Steelers scheme, but in the fourth i think he would be an excellent third and long passrusher as DT

Arthur Jones - I believe he is going to be a really really good 5 technique player at some point, and he could be had in the third probably, which would address a big need and i think this kid could be a starter in a couple of years.
