    No more high line picks.

    Sorry to disappoint you but they are going to use one of their first two picks on that D-line. They have to. There is no pressure coming..especially up the middle! If you can't fix the secondary adequately, then you do the next best thing and that is get the pass rush back.

    Id be totally ok with them taking womack and hunt in 1 and 2.

    Womack gives the steelers a line littered with potential hall of famers

    all the linemen they take in the later rounds turn out to be bums (except colon, who i always liked but its time to move on)

    Its not common at all to find a stud in the 3rd+ round of the draft when it comes to offensive linemen....theres a handful, but few and very far in between.

    We tried tirelessly to find our carl nicks or jason peters but now it needs to be fixed.

    Think about Marvel Smith, Alan Faneca, Jeff Hartings, Kendall Simmons, and Max Starks

    thats 2nd, 1st, 1st, 1st, 3rd...and i think we can all agree how beastly that line was even if simmons and starks were average.

    As far as the dline goes, Hunt is 6-8, 290 runs a 4.6 and can bench 225 around 40-45 times....thats insane. Hes a bit older, and he needs work with technique but he has JJ watt/Calais Campbell potential. He can plat outside in a 34 on 2 downs and he can move inside and get his hands up on 3rd. Theres a handful of them to look at, but im liking hunt right now.

    As far as womack goes, if hes there at 17 there only players id pass on him for is jarvis jones or keenan allen/Cordarelle Patterson

    This is going to be a pivotal off-season. With a lot of twist and turns.

    Who are the D-Lineman over history in a 3-4 that provide great pressure and sacks? The Pressure from a 3-4 comes from the LB's.

    they still cant get blown off the ball, that cripples the linebackers.

    The LB's get the sacks. But the DT gets an initial push which doesn't allow the QB to step into his throwing motion. This forces him to move to either side and the LB's clean him up with the sacks.

    We are getting no push whatsoever from the middle of the pash rush. We need better production from the DT position on passing situations. IF we got that slight push up the middle, you'll see how the LB's would start getting those sacks again.

    JJ Watt plays for a DC who values his talent.

    Our DC wants our DL's to titty dance all day.
