    To make room for Cooper, the Steelers released Marvin Philip. Philip, a second-year center, spent time on both the Steelers’ active roster and practice squad this year
    Sounds like we are taking a page from the Jags playbook, remember when they picked up former Steeler players just to get an edge against us.. coughcough Troy Edwards coughcough , so this seems to me that maybe we are looking for an edge in this game.

    You never know...

    no thanks....me and b@g32 were talking about legursky....he might be an animal, but hes fat and we ask out guards and centers to pull alot...at least he would be a bruiser. Not one of those guys will go in the first round, there is no one even close to being a nick mangold of 08...not even close...we draft a tackle, not a center

    This draft is loaded with OT talent......I think the Steelers can get a really good player late in the first round and even a LT....So I think LT is the way to go....A Center needs be drafted though.....Not in the first round.....Maybe 2nd but I would even wait until the 3rd.....

    We need lineman who are football smart, they don't necessarily have to be the most talented. We need 5 guys who fit with each other, Colon is NOT a tackle (a RT anyways) and Mahan is NOT a center. They both need to go back to bein guards. As far as center goes, we might want to check the want ads seriously....wait and see what goin on in FA, cuz their ain't a whole lot comin outta college.


    If you don’t stand behind our troops.....Please feel free to stand in front of them!!!

    You could be right. I didn't realize how thin the C crop was this year. Looking at the OT's .... the talent runs much deeper.

    2. *Ryan Clady - Boise St (1)
    3. Sam Baker - USC (1)
    4. *Michael Oher- Ole Miss (1)
    5. Jeff Otah - Pitt (1-2)
    6. Gosder Cherilus - Boston Colege (1-2)
    7. Chris Williams - Vanderbilt (2-3)
    8. *Alex Boone - Ohio State (2-3)
    9. *Phil Loadholt - Oklahoma (2-3)
    10. Tony Hills - Texas (2-3)
    11. Kirk Barton - Ohio State (3-4)

    That figures.... somehow, someway, we need to find the next converted G to C ala Jeff Hartings. Hartings was pure hustle on every snap, using technique, strength and good old fashioned effort. When Hartings wasn’t mauling defensive linemen, he was 10 yards downfield beating up worn out linebackers. I wonder if Zeirlein will even be asked for his 2 cents in the war room considering the train wreck we call a OL. I think we need a different approach to scouting lineman in college then what we've done in the past. Colbert hasn't been getting it done, thats for sure.

    Cody Wallace in the 4th Round would be sweet. At A&M they know how to run the ball.
