    Steelers check out first-round draft candidate

    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08101/872153-66.stm

    Oregon running back Jonathan Stewart, a candidate to be the Steelers' first-round draft choice, paid them a visit today at their facility in Pittsburgh.

    Also visiting were cornerback Orlando Scandrick of Boise State and another running back, Chris Johnson of East Carolina.
    They are definitely keeping their options open; this might very well be a smoke screen though too along with just covering all the bases so we don't get stuck with a guy we want when our pick comes around since anything can happen.

    I like Chris Johnson as well but no way he lasts to the 3rd round...I think he goes early second round....His kick return ability alone might get him drafted that high...Plus he is a talented RB also and can play some WR....not much WR but at times you could see used as a Marshall Faulk type with his route running skills...

    My problems with Johnson are a.) really don't need him now that MeMo is here, b.) he isn't a really tough runner, c.) all of his productio came against weaker schools.

    The Steelers don't usually make public any information as to who they are targeting or which position they might be leaning too but if we can take an interior lineman in the first I'd be quite happy with Johnson in the 2nd given our potential situation heading into 2009 at CB. I would just hate to see us really not take advantage of the OL class this year early on in the draft.

    K Train, just because you have not posted it, why do you think Mike Jenkins is a bum?
