    poe is not as big of a project as hes being made out to be, its the easiest position to play (NT in a 34) of you are built for it. He will anchor wonderfully from day one and in no time we could have a DT that is at his absolute BEST on 3rd down. im talking haynesworth in tenn or ngata just pummeling interior oline. achoring he can do though, its not like he has to learn a ton

    If we dont get hightower in the 1st

    We need to get the crazy burfict in the 4th or 5th. Take the gamble and have our defense straighten him up.

    Then we get our 1st rounder ILB back.

    I don't nessecerilly agree with that. Teams like the Raiders, Cowboys, Bengals and maybe even the Ravens I think will take a shot at him. It's not like those teams haven't ever taken chances on players like Burfict before. Someone will reach for him. Now whether he ends up being a productive NFL player is totally up to him if he gets the chance.

    Not sure a 5th thru 7th is a reach for burfict. We have 85 he was a 7th... Harrison, how was his personal profile then?
    Most of our 5th thru 7th round picks end up in the coulda woulda pile anyway.
    Burfict at least is healthy and athletic. lots of upside. Lagaette Blount had a bad profile.. He crushes people.

I however trust that the Steelers will pick someone who can help out very soon if their recent track record holds up.

    The draft is almost here yet so damn far away.

    If we got Hightower at #24, you can best believe he will be the starter. Linebacker and runningback are the two positions in football where you can come in from the draft and make an immediate impact.

    But as quite as it's kept, we are desperate at ILB and nose tackle. Hampton may be back, but he really can't play anymore. As far as effectiveness, he's done. Hampton can't collaspe the pocket anymore..he just engages and that's it. We need that push from the middle of the D-line to make Woodley and Harrison that much more effective.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    3. Don't be surprised if the Steelers take a position in Round #1 that no one (neither expert nor amateur) is proclaiming ...
    Colbert can say what he wants to say. But I believe what I see more then what he says. Listen very carefully...

    WE HAVE NO NOSE TACKLE! Screw what Colbert is saying. With no push from the middle, Harrison and Woodley are double teamed.

    WE HAVE NO INSIDE LINEBACKER! All the guys we have now are best suited for the outside Linebacker positions. Truth be told, I wouldn't be surprised if they took two Inside Linebacker prospects for depth purposes.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.
