    Timmons wasn't their 1st choice

    Colbert said that, unlike Porter, Timmons is a man of few words, and he showed that in a conference call yesterday when, for example, he was asked to describe his strength.
    "My versatility."
    Two defensive ends the Steelers might have wanted to take with their first-round pick were gone before they had a chance.
    Jamaal Anderson of Arkansas was selected by the Atlanta Falcons with the eighth pick and Adam Carriker of Nebraska went 13th to the St. Louis Rams.
    The Steelers were foiled somewhat when the New York Jets made a trade with Carolina to slip into the No. 14 slot and draft Pitt cornerback Darrelle Revis. The Jaguars wanted Revis and were ready to offer the Steelers a high draft choice to switch with them at No. 17, where Timmons most likely still would be available. The Jets' move killed that
    I wonder what Jags would of traded us to move up 2 spots
    Whatever it would of been,I'm sure it would of been worth it,IMO.

    The Steelers had to know that Carriker was being heavily recruited by St. Louis..Hell we all knew that. If they wanted him that bad they should have traded up to get him. I didn't think Jamaal Anderson would fall to us and there was no way we were trading up to 8 to get him.

    I called that in the first round contest yesterday. Philly even told me this too and explained in a good enough detail to take that advice to heed. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.. I wonder.

    NFLN and all the papers said that we were coveting Revis in a big way, yet when you talk to the FO they say he wasn't as big of a priority that everyone else thinks. Sounds like a BS line to me to cover up the fact that we got had in the 1st round.

    It kind of sucks when your first 2 choices are taken by the time it's your turn to draft. Makes you wonder if it might have thrown them off their game yesterday which lead to the taking of a TE in the 3rd round

    For the draft i was hoping to get leon hall with our 1st pick, trade our 2nd 3rd and 4th pick to the bears for lance briggs. that way we got a cornerback that we need because ike got burnt alot during the season. and i like lance briggs he could lead our d like porter did.
