They should draft Garrette Lindholm, Jeff Reed might get hurt, at least that way we'll have his backup and he can take over the kickoff duties immediately. No need to actually draft a football player that doesn't have to be developed.

Wooton not needed after Worilds.

Wootton (6'6" 280 lbs.) would be a 3-4 DE. Worilds (6'1" 254 lbs.) would be a 3-4 OLB.

Did some research on Wootton (sp) for the mock draft we did. I'd like the FO consider him in round 4. IMO
:tt1

Put me down as not liking the 2nd round pick. So far, I'll give them a C+ for the draft.

James Harrison had 2 sacks in the last 8 games of the season. There is a real reason to worry and get a legit pass rushing threat for depth if Harrison is losing it ala Jason Gildon.

Your 5 is a good list.

Wooten is listed at 270....little light for a 3-4 DE.

Both Aaron Smith and Brett Keisel were in the 270 range when we drafted them. They gained the weight after being drafted.

Three rounds in, Bruce Campbell still waits

Posted by Mike Florio on April 23, 2010 10:51 PM ET



Though the last man in the Green Room finally made his escape when the Bengals made cornerback Brandon Ghee the 96th pick in the draft, another guy who received plenty of round-one hype is still waiting to hear his name.

Maryland tackle Bruce Campbell generated eye-popping numbers at the Scouting Combine. Though it created buzz that he could be taken as high as the top ten, we were told that multiple teams had applied a round-four grade to Campbell.

We now need to change that. Most if not all teams have applied a round-four grade to the former Terp.

Campbell ran the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds, and bench-pressed 225 pounds 34 times in Indianapolis. But his game film reflects a lower level of football ability, and through three rounds no one was willing to ignore the warning signs.

Jones would be the kind of guy who would thrive in our system. I put him on top of my wish list for DTs. Will be elated if we can score this guy.

Piotr Czech is still on the roster and gave Skippy a run for his $$$ last year, IMHO. Don't think there's a need there, Pappy. Czech, just guessing, may push Skippy again for a very interesting competition this year at kicker.

Wooton not needed after Worilds.

Wootton (6'6" 280 lbs.) would be a 3-4 DE. Worilds (6'1" 254 lbs.) would be a 3-4 OLB.

Both Aaron Smith and Brett Keisel were in the 270 range when we drafted them. They gained the weight after being drafted.

And it's been a while since they were drafted, now hasn't it? We got Ziggy last year but still need his counterpart for the future. Hope Colbert is paying attention if Wootton is still on the big board.

If we could get him and, say, Worthington (who, BTW, would also need to gain weight to play DT in the NFL) that would be a Day 3 bonanza.

I was being sarcastic, because, I don't think the Steelers drafted well on day two. The individual players themselves may be good, I would have rather had a DT than an OLB and the receiver isn't horrible, but he's a sprite.

I bet the Steelers take Verner if he's there. I've really liked him for us for a while. He's a little small and ran a little slow. But he can cover and he's a tackler and he's smart. I think this kid could contribute in the nickle/dime right away.

He's a guy who's play on the field leads me to believe he's a top talent at his position. But his size/speed make him available in day 3.

I really like Jones too.....think he would make a real solid 3-4 end with Pro-Bowl potential. Guy was a first round pick after his junior year.

It's a no-brainer- If Jonathan Dwyer is still on the board when the Steelers pick- he's the guy. He has the most ability of any rookie to have some immediate impact.

In the 5th, Chadman thinks we'll see lineman, and a safety- perhaps Kam Chancellor or Barry Church. If Nolan Carroll is still on the board- he could be a 5th too.

Typically, the front office draft its mid-later draft picks from the group of 30 they interviewed. ( example of last years were Lewis, Frank the Tank, Wallace) Maybe we can use that a source on who might called next.

this has been a dissapointing draft to say the least. we have to get franks or blount. maybe make some trades and get both guys in the 4th. that would salvage this draft imo.

I like pappy's idea of drafting a kicker for depth but we definetly need a back up punter in the draft. sep could get hurt again. either that or a 4th string TE because you can never have enough depth at TE
