    Stafford No.1 Overall?

    There is no way that I would take Stafford no.1 overall for sure. He is a good player dont get me wrong, but not no. 1 overall. The way that I went with the order of the 1st round was by NFL.com's Lowly bottom 10 by records. The Jags on your list are picking 19 and their record is a top or bottom 10 spot right now.

    I think Stafford can easily go No. 1, if he chooses to come out. He's the prototype NFL QB. What I also like about Stiller's version is that only one receiver is in the top 10. Crabtree (if he comes out) is probably the only one worthy of a pick that high. The receiver position is the one most likely to bust, which is why we didn't see any picked in the first round last year.

    These are just my opinions and I am not a paid writer, so feel free to give your opinions..

    Not a chance Chase Daniel sniffs the first round.

    Javon Ringer is a good back but not Top-5. He has very little potential, asicaly what you see is what you get with him. He is undersized (5-9 200) but runs really hard and has only decent speed.

    Laurenitis is a Middle Linebacker.

    Browns would (should) take someone lie Okrapo over a running back. Backs are just too easy to find and you shouldn't take one that high unless he has one of a kind talent.

    Andre Smith (form Alabama) will probably be the first Offensve Tackle selected.

    4. The Chiefs already have a franchise Left Tackle in Branden Albert and you NEVER draft a Right Tackle that high. There is just no reason to.

    8. I hate Laurenitis in a 3-4

    9. While I think Michael Crabtree would be good for Frisco, they desperately need safety help and I think they might take William Moore if he is available.

    20. Taylor Mays isn't een the best safety on his team. I think they would have to go Eric Berry (UT)

    Stafford really is a prototypical Quarter Back. He has awesome skills. His only problem is he throws a couple of passes each game that make you say "what was he thinking?"

    i say trade up then... We are "somewhat" solid on most positions, but we really need an o-line man or two, who can step in as a rookie imho. Dunno if there is any o-line ppl who are worth trading up for tho..
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    The Steelers should recieve an extra third round pick for losing Faneca.....Honestly I would trade up for a shot at Smith or Monroe.....But I think come draft time that Andre Smith will even pass Oher for the top OT in the class.......Smith is the best OT in this draft class.....Oher is 1b behind Smith...You know how much I like Oher also...

    There is some other OTs I also like in this class....Ciron Black, Jason Smith, and Eben Britton to name a few other OTs the Steelers should take a look at.....But I wouldn't mind them packaging some picks and moving up to draft a Smith, Oher, or Monroe....

    The Steelers need to upgrade at OT......The draft is the best way for them to upgrade....Unless they over pay in free agency for an OT......which the Steelers won't do
