    Blitzs Thoughts on the Day One 1

    Round One- Lawrence Timmons
    From Reading Things and Hearing things on the TV I saw that the steelers was getting reday to take Revis with 15 pick but then the jets traded up and took him at 14. I feel Timmons can be a quailty player. It looks he will be great at rushing the passer. But anyone remember the last FSU linesbacker we took on the first day? Its Alonzo Jackson.

    Round Two- LaMarr Woodley
    This is IMO the best pick of the day. If you win Defensive Player of the Year in the Big Ten you have to be pretty good. I think he can be a star at DE/OLB. Even though he is only 6'1" it dosent matter how tall you are to tackle the man with the ball. And he is very quick off the ball

    Round Three- Matt Spaeth
    WHO? Thats what everyone was think when he was drafted. But was a 1st Team All-American so he cant be that bad. My though is that he is 6'7" and in the goal line put him out as a WR and he is getting covered by a guy that only 6'0". Even though we didnt need a TE, he could still be a nice player

    Timmons wasn't a shocker but Woodley and Spaeth.
    The Day 2 picks are looking just as questionable from Tomlin and Colbert.

    I wonder how many picks don't actually make the roster this year as well??

    Ok Alonzo Jackson wasn't a true LB. He was DE turned OLB. With Timmons he is more of pure/true OLB so now worries about that for me. Hey Mike Tomlin loves the guy so he has better judgement then me.

    Basically another TE to eat-up a valuable roster spot.

    It sounds like they will keep Tuman and use some three tight end sets...

    Spaeth can catch... He tore up Penn State last year and had many good games receiving.

    Both top 2 picks can play OLB for us and should fit in very nicely. They will give us some fresh blood at the LB spot and push everyone to be even better. Haggans and Harrison may be the tagged starters for right now but Timmons & Woodley won't sit back and just be content for ST very long. They're going to push for more and more playing time and competition breeds success.

    I still don't like the Spaeth pick in the 3rd, we could have easily gotten him in the 4th round IMO.

    Miller and Spaeth in the game at the same time sounds impressive, if Spaeth can come out and prove hes a pass threat as well as a dozer, then defenses will be slow to react to both being on the field, we already know what Miller brings to the table. I say good pick
