[QUOTE=steeldawgswag;340849]I would rather have Pouncey as the 18th pick than spend so much more money next year on a top 3 pick.
I hate trading down, God injured Polamalu this year to Gift us with a draft pick with so many talented people on the draft... someone great will fall to us, if that is god forbid pouncey i will hate it but i will have to live with it.
I hate hate hate trading down.

There will definitely be talent there at 18. But, I also think trading up and/or down can work depending on your team's board and philosophy. To land top left tackles, for example, you have to finish in a crappy position or trade for one. They usaully go quickly. With comp picks this year, we actually have 7 picks we could use to trade up if there was a guy on the board that we felt we had to have.
The Steelers have, unfortunately, had more than a few misses in the past few drafts so the extra picks provide a margin for error. I don't disagree that trading down has drawbacks, but some teams draft better than others.
I think we would all love a repeat of the 74 draft, but that is not realistic. I just hope we land about 4 or 5 real contributors. I don't really care if we trade up or down or make the pick where we are.
he has done nothing for us in 5 years, they have no ties to him anymore...if he sucks it up hes out. hes half the player he was and he was never that good
i guarantee hes borderline 53 man roster, especially if logan shows up to win the return job
