    I really do like Weatherspoon but hes not the type of ILB we need...He's like Lawrence Timmons v.2...He's athletically a monster and hes quick(not quite as quick as Timmons though)....I just think we need a thumper like McClain or Spikes in the middle next to Timmons...he can probably play the run a little better than Timmons but thats not saying much...unless you want to draft Weatherspoon for depth and he can play some OLB and come in on passing downs for Farrior...with all that being said, I wouldnt hate the pick...

    the 4-3 may be coming sooner than we expect haha

    i think mays will be fine, we may get him..... i actually would like to see troy and taylor together... i think troy would make taylor a complete player.

    he has the tools... hes a beast...

    i honestly have no idea how smart he is..

    anyone else know that?

    Iupati interviewed at length Thursday with new offensive line coach Sean Kugler and said the Steelers showed great interest in his ability.

    "They said I was their No. 1 lineman," said Iupati, who was born and raised in American Samoa. "They were great. He said he really liked how I played on the goal [line]. He said you never know what can happen."

    Ending up with the Steelers would be fine with Iupati.

    "Most of my relatives are all Steelers fans," he said.

    As much as most of us want a franchise LT I think the Steelers are happy with the ones they have. If we take any offensive lineman I believe Iuputi and Pouncey are the most likely to wind up in black and gold.

    I would not be pleased with Iupati at 18. Just dont like him all that much, and we have much bigger needs than a guard...
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    watch the senior bowl again. iupati didnt do real well. looked beat alot.

    Eric Olsen Center played good, looks good today at the combine also and benches like a beast.

    #2 pick - Center for us.

    #1 pick - Bulaga

    Eris Olsen isnt that good....You keep pimpin him like he's Nick Mangold...He wont be picked before the 4-5th round...come on now...We get that you like him but lets be realistic....you must be a Notre Dame fan...(im not trying to call you out or be a d*ck)

    And i can honestly say that I don't expect Bulaga to make it out of the top-15....there could easily be 4 tackles taken in the top 8....Im still hoping for Earl Thomas or that McClain falls to maybe 10-11 and we trade up...
