    With them taking Spence in the 3rd round, I"m thinking that they have a definite, defined plan for him. So when camp starts, I'll be very intrerested to see how they are going to fit him in and where.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    This was a draft that needed to be very good, and I believe we finally accomplished that. Lets face it the first 2 picks was more than a need, it was a necessity. After years of neglecting the offensive line we might actually be able to field a serviceable unit this year.

    Don't do that. We don't need you. We didn't need you at the beginning, we don't need you now."

    I give it a A- or B+ not because they did bad but we got Value I believe at every pick but because this is the way a draft is supposed to go every year.

    Fine
    Awesome draft now here my question.
    Shouldn't they have taken Ta'Amu in the 3rd and hope for Spence in 4th? Then in the 6st Brandon Washington LG Miami was there and Tom Compton OT/OG SDakota was on the board. Or stay put take Josh Chapman in 4th and get Brandon Washington in 6st.

    Possibly, but I think you underestimate how much teams like Spence. If you go and look at some videos he is always around the ball, and always somehow involved in the tackle. The only reason he fell as far as he did is because of the fact that is far too small to play in the NFL as a MLB at this point. I don't think there is anyway he would have lasted until the fourth.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Too Short?

    Not Heavy Enough?

    He is the same weight and faster than Farrior.? He is a team leader like farrior?

    He is 4 lbs lighter than Timmons and 2 inches shorter??

    He is a ball hawk... I dont get the weakness in small?

    Watching Miami football down here every sat.. he seems to be in every play... he is an animal.
