    Poe will be avalible at 24 but should we take him?

    The buzz from Dontari Poe's intoxicating combine performance seems to be waring off. as th4e scouts come back to earth and look at his game film they see potential and raw talent . I think the Steelers are the perfect team to take him and let him learn from Hamp and Keisel ,Hood and Heyward or do we pass on his potential and take an offensive lineman.IMO Cordy Glenn,Konz,Kalil or Decastro are the only o-line worthy of a 1st rd pick.

    Konz will be there. But does he play guard or would Pouncey move over to left guard?

    Poe still wont fall to #24 What if Courtney Upshaw falls to #24?

    Upshaw IMO doesn't have a true position in the pro game he's too small for OLB and too slow for ILB.Poe will be available at 24 .Konz can play guard and be our back up center

    Right after the combine I stated he's workouts wouldn't change his draft status and I was laughed at. I can name dozens of very athletic players that never live up to their potential . Poe is going to need at least a year to develop so to answer your question, yes I take him at 24, I believe we have that luxury with our current defense.

    wrong, he plays the easiest position to translate into the pros, especially as a rotational NT/DT. its not like he needs to bulk up or get stronger, hes pure beast through and through. Raji didnt need a full year even with a lengthy holdout, phil taylor didnt need a full year and poe is much more talented and actually much more productive than taylor who was also a high pick based on his size and strength despite not really jumping out on tape. Ngata didnt need a year before he was unblockable...ect

    just cause he played on a bad team doesnt automatically mean he needs years of seasoning before hes an effective NFL player

    If Poe is there at 24, I'd be upset if the Steelers passed on him but I doubt he will be. I feel almost as strongly about taking Poe as I did about Pouncey.

    Fine
    If Poe is there I'd still take Hightower and grab Chapman later on.

    im fairly confident you take him just to prevent him from going to the ravens....a line with ngata, cody, poe as a long term future...FU*K THAT...thats over a thousand pounds of man on the 3 man line.

    i guarantee this doesnt happen, the k train guarantee

    wasnt productive is such a misconception, he doesnt have eye popping tape but not productive is what over analyzers are gonna say about him.

    The thing with Poe is that its hard for them to put him at the NT spot since they have a guy in DeAngelo McCray whos more of a true NT, so they need him there, but he is quite an athletic big guy and his coach was quoted saying that he would be a top olympic level lifter (their weights coach does coach olympic level lifters). The dude is an absolute freak and is incredibly naturally strong and nimble

    You have to keep in mind that Memphis was among the least talented teams in FBS football last year, and the "guy plugs up the middle allowing others to make plays" concept only works when there are people capable of making plays other than the guy who plugs up the middle.

    I think Poe was the only guy who was capable of getting pressure from anywhere, so they put him in the place where he can get the most pressure, but this does make him look less effective on tape.

    his potential is too high to let him drop to the second, id love him as a steeler...he would thrive on this defense because there is so much talent up front
