    I just don't understand why you don't think NT is a need. McClendon is not a run-stopping NT who open holes for the LBs. He can rush the QB and thats about it. When Hampton played well this season (towards the end of the season), the whole defense played well. We have no one behind him, and you cannot expect him to play anywhere near a high level next year.
    yes, i think mendy and wallace will be gone... its a forgone conclusion.

    pressure, takeaways, spash plays.... that's what you need on defense today. im not wasting high end draft picks on gap controlling dline... how's that working out with Hood and Heyward? We have 2, young, later round NT prospects. I liked Fangupo a lot in his draft, I'm glad we snagged him. Let those 2 fight for a job in camp before we spend another high pick on a space eater.

    i like dwyer as much as anyone... but im realistic about his ceiling. he's not going to be a back who changes the game. we don't have a pass catcher, 3rd down back. we don't have a hurry up offense back. we have a solid 1st half back, and a short yardage back in Redman. RB is asbolutely a need.

    It's a 2 back league now. it's not a good draft to need a rb... we should've grabbed someone last year (Lemichael James... doh doh doh!!!)

    I really like Kenjon Barner if he's there in the 4th ... and Zac Stacey or DJ Harper later on ... I think all 3 would be great compliments to Dwyer

    im a big fan of barner and franklin (as 3rd/4th round guys)

    Lacy played himself out of our range (unless we used our 1st on him)

    but i'm seriously considering lattimore in the 2nd

    my position on RBs has been moving a lot since the end of the reg season, bowl games... and i expect it will continue to move more towards investing a 2nd rounder in the position.

    A second rounder? Hmmm.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I agree on one of your other posts about NT, not only do i think Mclendon will do fine, i think NT is a plug and play spot too anymore...

    However, i think Lacy could still go middle of the 2nd. He played really well but when i look at the other teams in the NFL that pick after our 1st RD pick, i see other dire problems on them.

    The only team i see possibly picking him up in the 1st round is ATL since TE and RB are big needs for them with Turner (on the decline) and Gonzalez (about to retire). But if ATL don't pick him up i see a very real chance of him falling to us.

    Not saying that he will but its a decent possibility. The combine will give us a better feel for where hell be.

    Marcus Lattimore in the 2nd... That could be the most brilliant idea, or the worst. It all depends on if he comes back healthy and the same RB as he was b4 or if he just continues to be injury prone. Are you willing to gamble a 2nd RD pick on that.

    I just dont know. I mean McGahee came back and was a solid RB for yrs after his knee injury in the NatChamp game against OSU, so Lattimore could too.. but i just dk about giving up a 2nd. He is a special RB tho.

    Would anybody take a chance on Montee Ball in the 3rd?

    Disagree.

    A dominant nose tackle gets the push up the middle on passing downs, which stop QB's like Flacco from stepping up which forces them to move toward either Woodley or Harrison on the edges. Jonathan Jenkins of Georgia would fit the bill perfectly. We need to start being the Steelers again. We need to become dominant on the line like we used to be.

    Montee Ball in Round 3 is a yes. As for Lattimore.....round 4 would be my gamble on him.

    What about this guy....Christine Michael...don't know much about him but the write up looks good.

    uh... most NT's come of the field in passing situations. what steelers have you been watching? a dominant NT requires 2 olinemen to account for him, creating more 1 on 1 situations for the rest of the front 7.

    are you trying to set a record for being wrong?
