Here are mine ...

1. OG/OT Cordy Glenn - I felt this guy could be a beast at LG for the Steelers ... DeCastro was the pick ... but Glenn would have done just fine ...

2. RB Robert Turbin - Tough Steeler-esque runner with a nice burst could have been a nice compliment to our young group ...

3. LB James Michael Johnson - Spence will likely prove to be a better pick (I never saw Spence coming) ...

Runner-up. WR Joe Adams - But our WR corps would have been tough for Adams to cut into ... maybe could have been the #5 guy and used on punt returns? ...

I think we scored big on our first 4 picks this time ... time will tell ...

The current roster feels younger and more talented than it has felt to me in quite some time ...

They came away with far more than I could have ever dreamed.

1: Decastro
2: Adams
3: Ta'amu.

Guys I would have liked to have seen are Kendricks, Massie, and Polk.

05-14-2012, 06:56 PM
1. Hightower
2. Kendricks
3. Any Kicker

I'm happier with the Top 5 guys they actually got then what was on my wish list.

I was hoping for Brandon Weeden but the Clowns took him dammit!:lol:

Robert Turbin for depth with Dwyer and Redman would have been nice but with what we got out of the first 3 picks was better then I could have hoped for.

05-14-2012, 07:32 PM
Castro, Adams,Spence lmao:lol: I love this draft...:tt02:

05-14-2012, 07:42 PM
Turbin for sure, then:

Shea McClellin - DE
Tommy Streeter - WR
Patrick Witt - QB

05-14-2012, 08:56 PM
Turbin for me also, but rainey is like a wallace in speed.. kickoffs and punts will be fun.

Carson Wiggs - Kicker.

Osweiler. A big QB backup

Marcus Dowtin ... my personal favorite player in this draft and went as a UFA
Dre Kirkpatrick
Brandon Thompson

With as good as the Steelers have been in the draft this last decade I don't bother second guessing them anymore. I have been a fan for over 30 years now and the 90's were tough..lol

I felt like they should have taken Dennard in the 5th even with his issues we could have taken him and always cut him later if they didn't want to

None, I think the Steelers Aced the draft DeCastro, Adams, Ta'amu, should be long time steelers. one of the other picks should be as well, and that alone is a great draft. Picks like Rainey...how can you not like those type of guys in later rounds. Hope we can keep Omar Khan and KC around so the Steelers can continue to have drafts as productive as these.

Osweiler from ASU about Bens size,mobile and good accuracy, I aM VERY HAPPY thought with the draft we had this year. No complaining from me. Im on the Spence ship now to.

05-15-2012, 11:48 AM
If you ask me they should have taken Bernard Pierce and/or Robert Turbin at the RB positions, BUT Rainey is an interesting guy and it would be nice to see Dwyer, Clay, Batch and Rashard (if healthy) be one of the better RB groups. Also maybe a corner like Donnie Fletcher in the late rounds or that guy from Furman. Eh either way they did a great job in the draft and we should be excited

I have a feeling it will be Spence who we are blown away by when it's all said and done ... Steelers fans love their LB's, especially when they are big time playmakers ... I got this really good feeling about Spence!

05-15-2012, 02:14 PM
Spence is a fun player to watch as is rainey. Dwyer may be also with a new OC and OL

i loved the draft. i wish they would have got a kicker and a backup QB...like Az State's or kellen moore in the 7th round. i also really liked mike martin from michigan but only because i'm biased. i believe ta'amu will be better.

05-15-2012, 03:56 PM
Brandon Washington in the 6st or Tom Compton.

05-16-2012, 08:01 AM
Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego St.
Nate Potter, OT, Boise St
Lamar Miller, RB, Miami
who were drafted....

Coryell Judie, CB, Texas A&M
Vontaze Burfict, ILB, Arizona St
Hebron Fangupu, DT, B.Y.U
Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia....

ALL undrafted!!!

Pretty hard to argue with what we got but as a fan of physical, nasty offensive lines I would have been overjoyed to have had Amini Silatolu in the line with DeCastro. Other teams would not like playing against that line. I'm surprised he went very early in the 2nd round.

i would have really liked minnifield and brandon washington late.

i didnt even think decastro was in the realm of possibility without moving to the top 10, and ive had taanu and adams mocked to us several times over the process....after the first 2 picks, they were incapable of pissing me off

05-16-2012, 02:22 PM
Agree with you on DeCastro. Pre-draft, I automatically go right past guys like him because you figure there's no way he'll be available when we pick.
