1 15 Timmons, Lawrence OLB 6-3 232 Florida State
Good LB that fits our system. Will replace the shoes of Porter who flew the coupe. I see him growing in our system and I think he was the BPA for the Steelers at this spot.
2 46 Woodley, LaMarr DE 6-2 269 Michigan
A DE who weighs enough to convert to LB which I think we will play him at both this upcomming year. He like Timmons is a solid pass rusher and will fit our system well. I would have liked to see the Steelers trade up and get rid of some of the crappy picks for a OG like Blalock with this pick, but in the end i cant complain they got a solid player.
3 77 Spaeth, Matt TE 6-7 267 Minnesota
WHADAFUXUP with this pick. Initial reaction from everyone. Before I talk about how this is a bad pick let me explain how its not so bad. This guy is a huge TE with exceptional blocking. The plan for this guy could be to convert to a linemen or Tomlin could want us to use a 2 TE set more often. This will only help if he will actually use his TE unlike cower.
NOW the down side is we could have used this pick on Hunt or Bush and still got this guy in the 4th if he is really who we wanted. I think Bush and Hunt bring more value to our team right away. All im going to say is when our 4th comes around and we dont get Bush I wouldnt touch a RB till the 7th and thats not saying much. I might pick up a Germaine Race there and see how much he wants it in mini camp.
How about You guys?
