With NCAAF officially starting in a couple days I thought maybe it was time to start hearing some chatter about thoughts for the 2012 Draft. It's never too early to start looking, right?
I watch a ton of college football so I can't help but start thinking about it myself. I pretty much keep my eyes open for people who fit the Steelers needs, schemes, organization, etc every game I watch.
Some of the positions I see them looking to fill in no particular order (obviously this could change by draft time):
We'll have to see how some of the young guys pan out this season before we can say for sure on some of these but the way it looks to me now this seems reasonable.
Some people I'm gonna try to stay up on for now:
NT- Guys from Alabama and Washington
ILB- Dont'a Hightower Alabama
CB- Cliff Harris Oregon and Stephen Gilmore South Carolina and Desmond Trufant Washington
FS/S Robert Lester Alabama and Janzen Jackson Tennessee
DE- Andre Branch Clemson and Bruce Irvin West Virginia
This is going to be a fairly deep draft for O-lineman.
