Thaddeus Gibson, DE from Ohio State would be great if the Steelers stick with the 3-4....I saw him play at Euclid High School at LB, and he was beastly...

He's not a Vernon Gholston workout warrior type...

Possibly...or later...

He kind of reminds me of how Joey Porter played at Colorado State...

Maurkice Pouncey, C Florida
Earl Thomas, DB Texas
Donovan Warren, DB Michigan


I'd rather have Jason Pierre-Paul, DE South Florida instead of Carlos Dunlap.

I would probably break the screen on my TV if you guys took Jermaine Gresham before we can...

Many of the experts on this board would probably break their screens too if we took him. I'd be totally OK if we took him. Gresham and Heath together would be unstoppable especially when we will be looking for a possession receiver as Hines wears out.

Gresham has Hines' skillset in a bigger package.

Don't know that I'd be breaking anything, but I'd be disappointed. IMO, we don't need another TE no matter how good he is. The needs are just too great in too many other areas.

I like Thaddeus Gibson. He has tons of athleticism...plays faster than he times. He is extremely twitchy...terrific quickness...led the Buckeyes with TFL. But, he is raw...even though he is a physical tackler can be often overpowered by bigger linemen. He is a finesse pass rusher...has no real bull rush. He is one of those guys who could go middle/late first...but I'm not sure he won't slip to middle second.

A bit...but Davis had ALOT more college productivity. Gibson is a bit quicker and stronger than Davis...has more upside. But, I don't think we need another OLB.

I don't think OLB is a priority in this draft but we need a good backup for James/Woodley.

I would select Eric Norwood from Univ of SC, if he is available in 3rd Rd or take a flier on 4-3 DE who can be converted into an OLB in late round.

If by some miracle Gibson falls to the third...I would consider him. But, we have so many needs...and OLB is way down on that list.
