Solder is a top 4 tackle and if you watched his pro day video you'd be happy with him. Plus he's a True Left Tackle. I wouldn't be upset. However I'd take Aaron Williams because he can play CB and then replace Ryan Clark at FS(if we dont resign IKE) or Replace Clark this year as we trade Clark to Arizona for a 3rd. I can see the Steelers taking Rahim Moore and if they did I'd know that Carnell Lake is going to Change The DB's for the better.
I think this years pick will be a surprise like Jacksonvilles last year. CURTIS BROWN TEXAS. It will be hard for them to not select Nate Solder. It will allow them to trade Max Starks saving money they can give to Woodley or FA Tyler Clabo.

If we Resign Ike Taylor Move him to FS, Trade Clark to Arizona for a 3rd ( they'd want to give up a 4 or 5 but because of knowledge of LeBeaus System,Horton's DB scheme we want a 3rd). I'd even consider swapping 2nd rounders for Clark but the extra pick is better.
Then I'd know for sure they want CURTIS BROWN TEXAS in rd 1 or Steelers trade out of 1st into early 2nd then Select Brown & Cannon/Franklin/Ijalana.

what needs to happen is resign Ike and leave him where he has been our second best player in the secondary, dont fix what aint broken! Then draft best player available from OL, DL, CB, or maybe ILB. Plus let hope that one of the young guys in Lewis or Butler decide to step up because we cant continue to draft failures in the middle rounds at corner and just expect something different to happen. who knows maybe the CBA will get done and Lake will be able to work some magic with one of them?
Wow, really? :lol: Clark isnt worth a 5th... Move Ike, that makes sense considering hes our best CB hands down...Quote:

yeah, ike stays at CB and we are not getting a 3rd for clark lol ..
as for solder, why do you mention his pro-day as a reason to like him? i see him as a guy who is going to struggle with the bull-rush as well as benders..
no need for Steeler mocks this year...
just sit back order a pizza and enjoy watching football b/c this years pick is already in the bag...
BEST PLAYER AVAILIBLE, plain and simple...

As far as moving Ike. He's 31 still has speed & knows the system. With a new DB coach I hope we'd have a change on the back end. Time for Lewis or Butler to step up,draft a cover corner who will get a real chance to Start. Move Bmac to nickel and bye bye to William Gay or vice versa
We have Picked up Donovan Warren,Have Lewis & Butler, Mundy is good & Bmac is ok.
They need to decide if they want Bmac or are going to Resign William Gay. I think they like Gay Better and he's healthier.
