I'd like this thread to be on who we think the Steelers will pick in the first round only and I will start off with;

Earl Thomas- Safety from Texas

I still think we need a good safety for depth with Troy having problems keeping healthy all season.
Our style of defense has proven that if one of our top safeties go down, the defense as a whole takes a major step backwards.

I would like Thomas, but I would be stunned if he was there.That being said, Joe Haden has been sliding down some boards. Kyle Wilson is still my pick. Yes a safety would be nice but the most glaring weakness is CB, OL. I believe its time to finally demote Gay. Either one of these guys come in, and become an instant starter.

pouncey if haden, mcclain, bryant are gone .. i thought we established there was to be no more setting up the letdown of not getting ET?

Tim Tebow:lol:

If Thomas is gone then I like Haden as the pick, but that gives us too many corners. Lewis, Taylor, Gay, Haden, Burnett, Pittman, and Williams. I would really like to see Gay return to the nickel corner, and Haden and Taylor start then, but I like Lewis too and want to see what he can do with one year under his belt.

I would really like to see Haden. CB is a glaring need that needs to be filled, and if he falls to 18, I would love to see him taken there.

i always forget about graham.

mclain would be nice, i like him alot hes a great player, a perfect fit and an unreal leader....but hes not the biggest need, MLBs value is not too great unless they are patrick willis. the drop off from mcclain and spikes might be 3 rounds, but it will be minimal on the field

Just looking at players who could potentially drop to us who would be too good to pass up. Obviously players like Berry, Suh, McCoy, Okung, Bradford aren't even worth listing because we know they won't fall to us. Thomas and McClain would be players too good to pass on. If you can get a player like McClain you can find a roster spot for him. RB was not the top need the year Mendenhall fell to us and we were all shocked he fell that far. It was a no-brainer pick. I would be happy with a McClain pick. It would give the team a lot of options and combinations to work with, that's for sure!

Graham would also be a good pick IMO. We are thin at OLB and will draft someone for depth. Two other possibilities are Jason Worilds and Thaddeus Gibson.

Center is a huge need. Read that Urbik was taking all the snaps at center with the second team and Legurski was taking all the snaps with the first team. Perhaps that is a sign of things to come.

what if clausen falls? im just saying, i cant say i would be terribly angry at the pickup

graham and woodley would be studs on the outside and harrison could move inside eventually. i LOVE gibson, always have and always will....cant stand worilds, he ran fast but hokies not only have a fast track they have THE fastest track...hes not that good imo.

when mendenhall fell to us they were between him and jenkins....they made the right choice but couldnt really go wrong there.

i like mcclain alot, but lets just say he and thomas are there ill take thomas all day...thomas, mcclain, haden could all potentially fall. some teams have kyle wilson as their number 1 corner, some have kareem jackson even. at 18 id be furious with jackson even though do like him quite a bit.

the only thing iupati would do for me is feed my ego and show that they have zero faith in urbik and his ability, progression or overall potential....which just would make me so happy lol. i would rather have pouncey though, hes a more refined player, a bigger need and has just as much superstar potential

Haden then Demaryius Thomas just to switch it up a little.

Ward is 13 years in, holmes is gone. WR could be a #1 or #2 pick.

TE, we have miller. we may see a TE in this draft. #3 or #4
we can dump a few of these guys. Anyones better than ours after heath.

ILB. farrior is 14 years in did he get a sack? we really need McClain. ILB is a good pick at #1 or #2
McClain --- Spikes at #52 maybe

OLB .. Graham...

Urbik, is a big dude, can he handle center?? we may not draft pouncey.
Maybe Iupati if Urbik can play center?

CB's we have 6 plus two DB's - Eventually this area needs a clean out.
do we add more picks at CB? #2 pick maybe Kareem..

We need to protect Dixon, so i lean OL first.

We need to relieve pressure on the secondary. McClain or Graham 2nd choice.

i'd be shocked if the best QB in the draft falls to 18, but if he does that would make things interesting at minimum ..

did i miss something on jackson ? everything i read on him says "improved" - typical red flag .. do you think he is #2,3?

i would rather have pouncey as well - i think he fills the need and would go go great with Kemo, do you think tho that Iupati might be a better pure road-grader ?

rodgers was hands down better than alex smith in 05 imo...crazier things have happened.

teams love jackson, especially since he has 34 defense experience. i have them ranked as

1. haden
2. wilson
3a. mcourty
3b. jackson
3c. cox
4. ghee
5. robinson
6. franks

pouncey is so smooth, iupati is not but iupati can handle 2 guys with ease. iupati offers SOME versatility at tackle, but i wouldnt count on it. both are pro bowlers imo, but pouncey is our need and wont get ben (or whoever) killed nearly as much. iupati is a bigger kemo, which isnt a bad thing i jsut want a center with the stones to not get blown off the snap and pouncey is not slouch in run blocking either

i heard teams have wilson above haden due to his coverage, same with me.

i also hear now 6 teams are wanting markice pouncey in the top 15. one of them is denver.

to stop the faggots of eagles trading up to miami for earl thomas, we should switch positions with denver in a trade, leave the young fool mcdaniels to get the **** end of the stick whilst we get a quality player and watch the eagle fags cry. whilst the denver can draft pouncey or miss out on him at all lmao

just saying.

out of steeler fans, everyone thinks Earl Thomas is a 15-20 talent, whilst we think he is a 10-15 talent lol.

1.DEZ BRYANT
2.DEMARYIUS THOMAS
3. EARL THOMAS (if he fall, which i doubt)
This is one of the deepest drafts for defensive players i have seen in a long time. Also, if the season started today, this would be our WR depth chart:

1.Ward
2.Wallace
? Randle-El
? Sweed
? Battle
? Grisham

I think if a guy like Dez Bryant is available, we have little choice but to draft him. He's the best player at his position and fills a need as a WR and returner. I LOVE the people who say "he's just like Holmes" "Why get him to replace Holmes?" "We dont need a guy like that" ...

"Dez Bryant Suspended By NCAA Until 2010 Season

Photo - Dez Bryant - Oklahoma St

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has informed Oklahoma State University tonight that junior wide receiver Dez Bryant will remain suspended for one calendar year. He will be eligible to return to game action in September of 2010.
OSU is appealing the decision to the NCAA Student-Athlete Reinstatement Committee and could learn that committee’s decision as early as next week. OSU officials will have no further comment on the matter until the appeal process is complete
Bryant is one of the top prospects at the receiver position for the NFL 2010 Draft. The junior wideout was ruled ineligible for violating an NCAA bylaw. The powerful 6’2” 215 lb. receiver was ruled ineligible earlier this month by the school after he reportedly lied to the NCAA officials about a visit and workout at the home of former NFL star defender Deion Sanders earlier this fall. Bryant is a blue chip prospect for the NFL and is coming off a huge sophomore performance last season when he had 87 receptions with 19 TDs for over 1,500 yards while averaging over 17 yards per catch. We ranked him in the Top 20 Prospects for the NFL Draft 2010 with Top 10 potential if he declares for the pro game this January.
The NCAA interviewed Bryant twice earlier this year about allegations at which time he denied that he had visited Sanders. That was proven false, but the fact that he lied to the NCAA is a violation that led to the suspension. Oklahoma St University has already begun the process of applying to the NCAA on his behalf for reinstatement. This incident does not involve anyone associated with the OSU football or athletic department staffs, any employee of the university, alumni, donors, or any third-party affiliated with OSU."

To say he was set-up would be an UNDER-STATEMENT... why was he being questioned so intently about a visit with Dieon, if it was infact, not breaking any NCAA rule? They wanted to catch him in a lie and thats what they did."

2. He does not, but he knows more about steelers than most, and he normally knows whats going on.

3. Yes i have. Should we move up for Thomas, haden will be around as well, most likely, and haden > Thomas as a CB. We drafted lewis last year who was supposed tto be that kind of player. I know steelers like thomas as a cb, butt not more than haden.

really, i saw colbert and green talking to thomas after his pro day for a long time.

i also read that greene wasnt at hadens pro day, usually greene doesnt go to pro days so something he likes alot more than haden.

Thomas > Overrated Haden anyday, I don't care where he plays, he's alot more useful and a better prospect than Haden.

Ed Buchette spews bullshit, seriously who wants to ****ing pay for the **** he writes.

And Lewis, I like the dude, but why the **** did we pick keenan lewis? He will do nothing for us, along with every other ****ing mid round prospect we have drafted in some recent drafts apart from mike wallace and hopefully joe burnett and william gay and lamarr woodley.

The only way we don't is if there is an o-lineman there that we have been high on . But chances are if we are high on them someone else will be too .

If there's an impact defensive player, they pick him (except OLB which I think they are OK). If not then they go OL. Pouncy or that guard who's name escapes me. They need to improve the run game without Holmes and keep ben from getting sacked 50 times a year.

I've lost all respect for ben roethlisberger and his extra curricular activites, he will have to earn the respect back

Completely understandable, a lot of people have lost respect for him but I'm just saying, try to be a little mature about it....

Don't worry he'll be crying for Ben back when we're 0-4 and Dixon throws for 500 yards, a 48% completion percentage with a 3:8 TD-INT ratio in those games :yellowthumb:

Well, getting back to the OPs original post/question.

I like Thomas @ 18 if there.

My shameless speculation is the Steelers want Rolando McClain if he is anywhere after 11 in there charts, that day. Like the Polamalu deal years back. If he's there @ 18 I think they'll feel they just signed a future pro bowler for our system.

Now if McClain is not there and I don't feel they will go Thomas, I think they like Jackson of Bama because of his coverage skills and quickness. I like Wilson but beleive they like Jackson.

When the **** did i say i want Ben off the team. I was saying we will see how good the oline is when dixon, who doesnt hold onto the ball long, see how many times he get sacked idiot.

People like you really ****ing **** me off, like the holmes deal, you were one of the twats that said it would never happen, but it did, so shut the **** up.

eagles are in need of a center.. here is a blib out of philly.

but Shipley is a much more interesting prospect. An all-American in college, Shipley was drafted in the seventh round a year ago, but spent last season on the Steelers' practice squad.

He's "a guy we liked in last year's draft," Roseman said. "He's been a productive player at a big-time school, and he's doing a good job here."

If the Eagles really like what they see out of Shipley - or McGlynn and Reynolds, for that matter - it would be difficult to envision them expending a top pick on a center. Of course, not many teams "waste" high picks on centers.

Who do I want or Who will it be?

I am bracing for a shocker:

Want:
Thomas/Haden/Wilson; help for secondary

Who do I think it will be:
Left tackle; whether it is one who falls to them or one they trade for

A shock if it happened, but just to be prepared for it:

Graham/ Cody/Wiliams
