    Yes, we're done with "projects" for the next couple of years.

    Right which makes it perfect to get the OT/G 1st then the BPA at RB 2nd

    then go all defense.

    We need LB help, RB help, and Safety help before we go anywhere near OL.

    The only help we need at LB is for Harrisons side. I belieive Harrison will be here for one last season so he will be fully healed. I We are fine at MLB with Foote/Spence/Timmons and Woodley will have a bounce back year this coming season, well I hope.

    Saftey is a little deep this draft and I think we can get one in the second. Rbs, Im not sure how deep they are but Im pretty sure we can get Graham maybe in the 3rd.

    What I meant to say earlier is, I wouldnt be upset if they went OL, but ONLY if Wamack fell that far is all.

    If Warmack is there you take him. An improved OL will help our running game.

    The Steelers have huge holes on this team. Giving up the 3rd and 4th for a guy who couldn't play thru minor injuries (your words, not mine). A guy who's rushed 22 times in his career, and by your description, has very little experience in RB to begin with. Although RB is an area of need, there's no way I'd give up a 3 and a 4 for him. If he was that good, he'd get playing time on Oakland. Sometimes guys sit in the bench because they're not good enough to play as well.

    With picks in the 3rd or later rounds, we were able to get Sanders, C. Brown, A. Brown and Wallace just to name a few. Plus, you want to give up a 3 and a 4 for a guy they picked in the 4th that can't touch their field. That's just foolish.

    The offesnive line isn't an area of need. If there isn't a guy in the first, then trade out of the first like Baltimore did last year.

    Also keep in mind, that we'll start next year without our starting RB, without our starting TE and without one of our starting receivers. You're looking to replace only one of them.

    I do not agree with looking for OL in the first round but if Warmack is available he is easily the best player by far. I do not see how you put anyone else' s name down.
