Steelers 2008 first day Needs.

-*OL(2-3)*...Guard and a Tackle are MUST needs...Steelers could use a "swing" Linemen.

My Targets(players I really like)

Round 1...

Gosder Cherlius Tackle Boston College...Boston College is becoming Oline U..Cherlius is the real deal...He would be a steal after pick 20

Michael Oher Tackle/Guard Ole Miss...Just a flat out stud on a horrible team. Very good run blocker...Great pass blocker.

Round 2

Tony Hills Texas Tackle..Very good feet...Not a great run blocker...He could be a fine NFl tackle.

Kirk Barton OSU Tackle...My favorite Olinemen in this draft...He is big boy with a nasty disposition and great tools.

Chris Williams Vandy Guard Tackle...He reminds me of a bigger Brian Waters...Great technician...Fantastic pass blocker.

Heath Benedict Newberry....Run blocking machine....Just a specimen

Round 3

John Greco Toledo...Has started at every position for Toledo...Great player..Could be a steal.

Max Unger Oregon...He is a little soft for my taste...He has 1st round ability.

Jeff Otah Pitt...Very raw...Very talented...He took Chris Long to the woodsheed...I dont like most home town picks...I would take a long look at Otah.

Oline is deep in this draft...College tackles can make the move to guard...This tackle class is off the charts...If a majority of the Jrs declare...You could get a steal like Barton in round 3.

*Interior pass rusher(1)*...Steelers must find a player who can get rush the passer from the interior of the Defensive line.

Round 1

Cedric Ellis USC...I dont care that he is 6-1...So is Dwight Freeney. Ellis makes plays...I know we have Hampton...Ellis has the rare ability to rush the passer...Ellis will be an ideal player in todays specialized NFl.

Tyson Jackson LSU...How many 300 pound guys you know of that run a legit 4.68 40? Jackson is a 20 year old beast...He needs some work...He has the ability to be an elite player...I mean Very elite.

Dre Moore Maryland....Moore is a high character guy on the field...I have seen Moore play 3 games this year....He dismantled WVU...He is a wrecking ball on the field. He can really rush the passer.

Round 3

Kentwan Balmer UNC...He is Kimo Von Bomber Pilot II...He understands leverage...Has incredible hand strength...And refuses to stay blocked.

Kendall Langford Hampton...Wow...Very Big fish in a small pond...He looks the part...Very long arms Great speed great strength...Great rusher.

*Big Wr who can run and catch*

Round 1

Malcom Kelly OU 6-4 225 4.45....STUD

Round 2

Jaison Williams Oregon 6-5 240 4.54....He has problems catching the ball...He can learn to catch...You cant coach his size and speed...Great blocker...Nasty disposition...Alot like Plax coming out of MSU


Limas Sweed UT 6-5 220 4.54...Speed will make or break him..Great hands and body control

James Hardy Indiana 6-6 210 4.55 40...Great hands...Great route runner...Plays faster then 40 time...Has dismantled some very high quality corners.
