    i think we should talk woodson and primetime out of retirement, then get a 7-5 WR, the bengals or colts WR coaches as our OC and i think we should kidnap joe thomas from the browns. then we should just go ahead and assassinate the rooneys and sell the team off to dan snyder. then i think we should make willie parker eat lots and lots of cake so we have a power running game, then we should clone our 7-5 wr and feed him miracle grow so he can be 8-5. then tomlin and the colts and bengals wr coaches should go ahead and merge teams with the patriots and keep belichick on as our special teams coach.

    IF somehow we didnt draft oline in the first, theres only a handful of guys i would be ok with and Talib is one of them
    Talib has nice size and had a good fianl game... but i havent seen him placed ahead of Mcklevlin but once on anyones board... i just like the fact that we would be drafting the #1 or #2 return man and everyones (minus you) #3 or #4 CB!!! Plus he led his team in solo tackles and was rarely throw at!!! the kid has game!!!

    kgreen,

    I appreciate your point....and I know that the Rooneys are not gonna throw a lot of cash at a lot of high end talent. All I am saying is that it would not hurt to keep the option open of looking at some free agents that are good QUALITY players that may not have marquee names but are good at fulfilling certain needs.

    Just my

    As much as I am a King fan he had a subpar year for sure!!! i wouldnt dismiss him entirely, he has the frame and the skills to play in the NFL for sure... I still say i want a book end T in the fisrt unless we can get a guy that is a top performer in his pos and a good KR.... thats McKlevlin!!!

    Antoine Cason is the best corner this year. For some reason he is flying under the radar. He is slow (not much more so than Talib) and some have him converting to FS. Wherever he goes he will be very good.

    Rob Rang, a senior draft analyst for NFLdraftscout.com, said it is a good year for teams looking for offensive tackles, since as many as five, including Pitt's Jeff Otah, could be taken in the first round.

    If the Steelers take an offensive tackle with their first-round pick (No. 24 overall), they might move right tackle Willie Colon to guard or even try him at center.

    The Steelers also might consider trying right guard Kendall Simmons at center, given the struggles of Sean Mahan, their only significant free-agent signing last year.

    If the Steelers take an offensive lineman among their first two picks in the draft, Rang said, Arizona State center Mike Pollak could be a good fit.

    The 6-foot-4, 292-pounder's draft stock has "skyrocketed" this season, Rang said, and he could be a second-round pick.

    "Very physical and knows how to play with technique," Rang said of Pollak. "He's the kind of guy that Pittsburgh in the past may consider."

    If the Steelers are looking for immediate contributions from the players they take in April's draft, they also will be looking for more help from the players they took in last year's draft.

    They didn't get much out of first-rounder Lawrence Timmons, in part because a groin injury limited the linebacker during offseason practices and a significant portion of training camp.

    Timmons, who was stuck behind Pro Bowler James Harrison at right outside linebacker, has been moved inside, and he'll compete with Larry Foote for playing time at the "mack" position next season.

    Second-round pick LaMarr Woodley thrived at the end of the season, and his emergence is why the Steelers most likely won't bring back Clark Haggans at left outside linebacker.

    Tomlin made it clear last week that the growth of the Steelers' most recent draft class will play a significant role in shaping what happens in 2008.
