Would love to post the entire article but I've been told I can't do that with articles from paysites. Anyway, Ryan Wilson is a sportswriter for SteelCityInsider.com and these are the guys that he believes sit on the Steelers 1st round draft board. According to him he believes the Steelers choices to be in the order that I give them to you and they only move down this list if the guys ahead of them are gone. Here it is.
1. Patrick Willis/ILB/Mississippi (loves his speed, believes he's a future stud)
2. Adam Carricker/DE/Nebraska (loves the versatility he gives our defense)
3. Jon Beason/OLB/Miami (next best LB after Willis is off the board)
4. Levi Brown/OT/Penn State (If the other 3 guys are gone, can't pass this guy)
I like this list and would be happy with any of these picks in the first round including the Brown pick if the other 3 are already gone. We can still land someone like a Woodley in round 2 or maybe even Spencer at pick 46.
I know that a lot of people might scream if they took Willis because we are thinner at OLB. This pick would be with Farrior's eventual replacement in mind and Willis is a beast who ran a 4.37 that's really fast for a linebacker.
Remember, these are Ryan Wilson's thoughts and I am sharing them with you. Don't shoot the messenger.
