If I was running the team, I would sign all the players you want, then see what you need. However, this line could welcome another Pouncey, and that could happen, a twin if you will. Ideally, they would get him, CB Ras I Dowling (Start opposite Taylor as well as fill in for Troy when he's injured) and DT Jarvis Jenkins (Aaron Smith's eventual replacement) . They would have to trade to get all those, but that would be just what we need. Those would be the top 3, but we have to wait for FA to start. If Starx can't play, and Scott is gone as well as Colon, then OT SHOULD be 1st pick. Imagine losing 3 OT's at once? It would be like this year all over again - Prey for another Flo to sign up. I think if we keep all of our good players, then the draft will fill the roster with what we need.

I think scott will get a 2 yr contract. I think we need a Tackle if a top rated one is there or Top Guard. Then its a DE that they'll actually let play in the first year. Then we need CB

go free agency for a good tackle and CB ... spend the dollars. picking 30+ isnt going to get us a top tackle or cb

BPA at 30+ would be a G, C, TE the rest of the best are already picked...

Guard/Tackle or TE will be the pick imo. Pouncey or maybe Kyle Rudolph from ND

We can trade Spaeth and or dump Johnson.. Then have two awesome TE's

Or just add the Guard and boost the OL. :imho:

i think they need to resign colon and keep flozell on board for another year.....id bust a nut if they went out and signed jared gaither though

RG/CB/DE are the targets in the first round....all positions that have been ignored long enough that its catching up with them

What is up with Gaither? Does he have real back problems or is Oher his problem...?

You know the steelers at 30+ they will 90% chance go BPA.. Maybe even a Saftey dropping this low? Moore out of ucla. you never know.

yeah right...sure BPA. thats not what hood or pouncey was. clearly i was upset with hood, and thrilled with pouncey but they are addressing need more than anything the last few drafts. best players available we'd have maualuga next to timmons and dez across from wallace

i dont think worilds was the best player available at all...they have very inconstant ways of drafting

moore very well might stay at school, but i think FS is a high priority too, at least in the next 2 years.

right now my board for players that im not writing the steelers off as being out of contention for at 25-32 would look like this

Sherrod
Harris
Clayborn
Heyward
Pouncey
Jenkins
Williams
Bailey
Cannon

a lot of good names there. Pouncey at 30-#32 or Cannon at #60-#64

BPA to me is Pouncey at #18 he was the #1 Center and available and we needed him.

Mike Pouncy at Guard picked at #30 would be the #1 guard picked in round one.

Kyle from ND at TE would be the #1 TE picked in round one.

If Moore is there at FS he would be the #1 FS picked in round one at #30

By the time we pick at #30 there will be a half dozen OT's taken already.. so the best OT would not be the best OT at that #30 pick to me.

But we do need an OT, CB... Free Agency is needed here.

this draft stuff is a gas, but all this will change in another 2 months.

i want no part in canstanzo, solder, love in round one....and believe it or not i think cannon is a top 15 senior prospect

carimi is a MAYBE he compares favorable to david stewart and will be a good RT for a long time, but that depends on what they have planned for LT and colon and flos future with the team.

Sign Gaither and the problems are all solved on the exterior oline, then address RG early and its a borderline elite oline

out of my list hes the comparisons ive came up with

Derrek Sherrod-Marvel Smith Clone
Brandon Harris- Marcus Trufant
Adrian Clayborn- Darnell Dockett
Cameron Heyward- Chris Canty
Mike Pouncey- Less aware maurkice pouncey
Janoris Jenkins- Asante Samuel
Aaron Williams- DRC
Allen Bailey- Justin Tuck
Marcus Cannon- Shawne Andrews

coach
01-05-2011, 06:14 PM
I can't recall who I was reading today but they projected Tyron Smith as the only real LT prospect and projected the rest as RTs. If that is the case, I see most of these guys falling to late first or second because there are more than a few quality QBs who will go early in first. There are going to be some risers and fallers and this year might be the exact opposite of last year where the OTs went high and QBs waited until day 2/3.

K Train
01-05-2011, 07:28 PM
classic example of LTs being overrated...trent williams was looked at as a RT, so was saffold and they are STUDS. jason smith was looked at as an elite LT and was beat out by rookie saffold and he can barely hold down RT.

Tyron smith is so thin, hes just like charles brown was coming out of usc, their weight/strength program is an abortion.

solder is probably the best athlete out of the tackles, bruce campbell like insane....but that doesnt make him a LT. imo sherrod is the best and its not close. castonzo and love would probably be my next two.

carimi could play on the left...hes not a cherilus/loadholt kind of RT only guy, better suited for the right but hes had a hell of a career at LT in college and theres worse options out there

I'm liking that comparison!

If we go corner in the first round, I'd want Jenkins and I like Stephen Schilling for RG in the 2nd if he's still available. You know they'll have an eye on other Pouncey, but when it comes to this line, we need to be taking the best player available...imo

cmerrifield
01-06-2011, 11:48 AM
I know its still early, but the way last year's draft seems to have been, I am pretty excited about day 3 of this years draft. Brown, Slyvester, Dwyer, Butler. This guys were good picks for late rounds. I hope they live up to their potential. I would like to see a CB early and a RG early, or a RT and shift Colon to RG. Otherwise, this team doesnt have a lot of holes. I know we need some depth at OLB, DL and probably a FS, but I doubt we will see those positions early

Ziggy was the BPA that didn't fit our scheme. He was projected to go a handful of picks sooner to the Colts.

Pouncey was not. Centers normally don't in the mid-first round but after Iupati was snatched up, Colbert decided to make a move.

K Train
01-06-2011, 05:19 PM
delmas, butler, maualuga, loadholt were all better fits than hood and hood was a colt/buc possibility in the first but widely considered a 2nd round prospect.

vollmer (who i wasnt really familiar with) would have been delightful had we known then what we know now. hindsight is a bitch though.

pouncey was one of my favoirte prospects, and im thrilled to have him but idt he was the best player available....total stud though no doubt. dez was my 4th overall player pre draft behind king suh, berry, and okung. knew he wouldnt be a steeler cause hes a retard but talented nonetheless. pouncey was closer to being the BPA than hood was though

You might like the Walter Football mock draft today, even though they pick a guard then a CB. They give us Pouncey in the first and Ras-I Dowling in the second. All they had to do for this to happen is to have 12 DE/OLBs drafted in the first round.

Someone in here (may have been K???) thought of Dowling more as a Safety. I haven't seen him but the write ups he gets are good. I am not sure he will be there in late second. Based on what I have read so far, this would look to be two good pick ups.

Any other CB/Guard or Guard/CB combos look good out there in rounds 1 and 2?

K Train
01-06-2011, 06:10 PM
dowling is almost certainly a 2nd or even 3rd round pick at best this year imo. hes a big name more than anything imo. he is this years malcolm jenkins or antrel rolle in that he will probably get a shot at CB but will have to move to FS.

im not crazy about him, some team might just draft him and put him at FS like the eagles did with macho or like the lions did with speivey.

Phdboy2020
01-06-2011, 09:33 PM
Ras-I Dowling is coming off a season ending injury and had stated that he will forgo the NFL draft to return to school so that he can graduate. Not sure how true that is but it was on 11/16/2010.

--- Added 1/6/2011 at 07:33 PM ---

I personally think we could get someone like Chimdi Chekwa CB OSU, in the 2nd or 3rd round. Could prob contribute immediatly as a nickel back for us.

We def need to focus on what we've neglected for years. O line,D line & CB. Why do we always wait until later to pickup a CB? However we need A Good D lineman I'd love an Haloti Type of player who can play any line position. Casey isn't going to be around forever and I'ts 3 yrs now with Aaron Smith getting hurt. I also wish they would of put Jaron Gilbert on the practice squad after the Jets cut him.

K Train great info as always.

If the following Players were available when The Steelers select who would you pick? Gabe Carimi,Derek Sherrod,Cameron Heyward, JJ Watt or Janoris Jenkins ,Brandon Harris?

coach
01-08-2011, 12:15 AM
Given the number of CBs, and where they are projected to go (early days though), don't we have a good chance of landing a decent one late in second. If so, take a game changer on O or D line in first. Take the BPA in first, or trade down and try to get an extra pick. It would be nice to address all 3 needs this year but that means we would have to go 3 for 3 with first 3 picks. Not sure how realistc that is.


At some point later I think we need a TE that catch better as well, as a number 2. I don't know if anyone has any favorite TEs out there that they like.

JensK
01-08-2011, 06:10 AM
I really do not like the idea of trading down for extra picks. We don't need extra picks, we need quality picks. We have plenty of depths on pretty much all positions. We need some impact players instead.

Phdboy2020
01-08-2011, 12:40 PM
I agree with JensK about needing quality picks, however, I also think that if we traded down to get more picks we could gain quality picks as well. I believe we got both Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders in the third round the last two drafts. We already know about Wallace, but Sanders will play a bigger role on the offense next year. Also, if u notice, the Gaytriots r always trading down to get picks and it seems like they r always on the clock. So depending on who's available when we pick in these rounds then we should def consider trading down. I think there is enough depth at both O-Lineman and DB's this year.

JollyRob68
01-09-2011, 10:50 PM
I seem some mocks said to draft Pitt WR Jonathan Baldwin. What are your thoughts? I'd like for them to draft someone who will start. Thats a OL maybe Baldwin after a few games or a Cam Heyward/JJ Watt to rotate on the DL.

K Train
01-10-2011, 01:47 AM
baldwin sucks and in no way should be a first round pick....id take jones in a heaetbeat if he was there, maybe floyd....but i wouldnt touch baldwin before the 3rd round

We signed Donavan Warren to futures contract. I like This signing.

Phdboy2020
01-11-2011, 08:48 PM
I agree with K Train. I think Baldwin will prolly be overdrafted b/c of his size. I personally think that he would be a decent receiver if he had a pro bowl caliber QB. I think that he is a steal after the second round and hopefully could contribute as a red-zone threat, but history for big receivers has not been good the previous few years with the exception of MegaTron b/c he had it all though. Im really anxious to see some of these guys at their pro days and or combine. Adding a bigger receiver would not hurt us at all. We may give Sweed one last chance, but who knows. We blew it with that pick.

From the looks of things Floyd could (should?) be avail ..I like Greg Little in the 2nd tbh and think by draft time he could be way higher ..

I know he is "raw" and needs work, but he is a legitimate RB after the catch and would be sweet as hell to have underneath ..

almost think he could play RB in the pros .. if you watch him he has a rare combination of wiggle and power .. manchild

i still have an odd amount of faith in sweed to contribute...i think he was poised to have a decent year before that injury. sucks, but what are you gonna do. you cant say they blew that pick, he was the obvious best player on the board

floyd is staying at ND. greg little would be a sick addition, reminds me of boldin. its hard to project the UNC guys though since they didnt play

Sands to me is intriguing .. he has some real good tape .. good range and he is definitely a wirey (sp?) dude ..

there always seems to be a sketchy projection with "big safeties" .. i like him, but still have my questions ..

what specifically do you not like about him?

dang, i just saw that about floyd .. must have come out today ..

Also wouldn't mind picking up Bruce miller DE from UCF in the later rounds and what do you guys think about buster skrine CB out of Chattanooga, as a sleeper like 4 or 5 round. runs his 40 in the low 4.2s. And a good cover guy

I still hold onto my opinion months ago after the first two corners there isn't much difference from the rest in the top 10 at the position......I still like Curtis Brown and think he would offer tremendous value in the 2nd round and that way the Steelers could look at another position in the first.....Brandon Burton from Utah is another corner the Steelers could look at and Utah has a track record of producing NFL DB's.........

rasi is the best fit imo, then williams, then brown, then harris who i would worry about in our scheme.

jimmy smith certainly wont be the pick and unless amukamara falls to 20ish he wont be either.

heyward is my hopeful surprise for the night, im sticking to williams being the pick though even though i think if its a corner it should be dowling.

Rampage
04-28-2011, 02:42 PM
I wouldn't care if they traded out, depending on who is there. Say that the only decent pick left would be Aaron Williams, but Arizona or Tennessee were willing to trade their 2nd (plus other picks of course) to get a QB at 31. I wouldn't be opposed, because Dowling would probably be there and the team could go after a guy like Gilbert with the 63.

K Train
04-28-2011, 02:45 PM
i mean i may not be pissed the next day, but that would remain to be seen after the picks from the 2nd and 3rd are in lol

i was SO MAD when they traded out of the last pick in the second just to come back with kraig ****ing urbik in the 3rd

Rampage
04-28-2011, 02:47 PM
Yeah, Urbik blew. Talk about a throw away pick and a lackluster draft altogether. I don't think this draft is going to be incredibly special, but I think they have several opportunities to fill needs with solid talent.

I don't know about everyone else, but I consider the Williams pick boring. That might not be the right word for it, but I mean, compare the feeling going into this draft against last year's. We knew this team wanted Pouncey, but there was still a little question mark about whether or not he'd be there. Exciting, because it was like Christmas morning when you saw the package that looked like it was the bike you asked for, but you weren't 100% sure. I wouldn't be opposed to Williams, but it just doesn't feel like a special pick, especially considering the fact that the team will still cling on to keeping BMac out there instead of putting him in if that is where they go.

yeah well timmons was "boring" too, it was pretty much set they were gonna take him.

aaron williams vs curtis brown is interesting....i agree they arent THAT different, but each is his own player and would have a role on the team. Aaron williams is the better football player imo, but curtis brown will make a better pure cornerback. hell we can throw chykie brown in here too....i like him, but i think hes the ebst athlete out of the 3, however im not expecting much from him in the pros and thats why hes a mid round pick.

really the picks i want are pouncey, heyward, dowling, williams, carimi...also add in taylor. trust me id rather be bored with one of those guys than absolutely furious at watkins, solder, wilkerson, ayers, sherrod, or rudolph. solder in particular would just not be ok with me

JollyRob68
04-28-2011, 04:30 PM
Seeing how our CB cant cover anyone. I'd jump for joy for Williams & Brown from Texas.

I say Trade out and get extra picks. It depends on how far back the want to go. DO they want an extra 3rd,4th wo 4ths? All are options as well as Squeezing the team that wants to move up for 2 & 3rd.
However, Gery Dulac of The Post Gazette seems to think a trade out of first and up from the 63rd is what they'll do. My research tells me to go after Denvers two 2nds & 6st #36 & #46 & #184. It cost us our 1st,2nd & 3rd but it gives us talent with rd 1 -2 grades and extra 6st.
Here's a trade up I like. Trade with Philly. Our 31,63,159(1,2,5) For their #23,103,119(1st & two 4ths). This is nice if Pouncey,Carimi a Dlineman we want slip.

They may move up to get him. See my Philly scenario.
The Steelers are said to like Chykie Brown for his long arms & he's a good Athlete.
I have this feeling that they're going to get quicker cover guys with a great verticle(includes Williams)because 1 Carnell Lake needs new toys to groom and 2, Were going to a Hybrid Defense next year with Keith Butler as DC. I just have that feeling. If we somehow snag Sam Acho, oooh I've got a feeling.

Amukamara to Washington?

Gabbert to Washington! (I'll keep saying this till someone draft him)

Gabbert to Washington! (I'll keep saying this till someone draft him)

I could see a few:

Gabbert to fill an obvious need at QB

Fairley to play D-Line as we all know about Haynesworthless

Amukamara to fill the second CB spot

I am rally curious as to what Vikings will do. They could go CB, but that defensive line is old and not so dominating anymore. Nick Fairley could easily be the pick here.

If we were going to move up for P2 it would be after Miami. We could see both P2 and PA on the board if he falls. That would be a dillema.
