Solder's a creampuff. No thanks.

No thanks, our tackles aren't the biggest problem areas of the O-line. I'd rather have the 31st and 95th pick. A very, very good player is going to fall to 1.31, think about it, are there more than 30 excellent football players playing college? I think so, unless, there is a player (Troy Polamalu) that is a play maker that you really want do not trade up.

Just my opinion

With our overall team age and our ability to draft as well as any team in football...I say hold on to all picks and draft away. If we can pair a 2011 draft with last years gem of a draft...we can be good-great for the next 5-8 years.

Pundits and analysts are always making reference to the Steelers age and that they will soon have to "overhaul" to stay competitive. The Steelers rarely "overhaul" the team; they develop players and move them into the starting lineup better than any team in football. They'll keep drafting, developing and winning games and get younger.

I'm hoping other teams think the Steelers are over the hill. :wink:

Can't see them trading up for an OT.

I disagree. Solder is a little raw, but athletically he is the best OT in the draft and the type of player who could end up playing Left tackle at a Pro bowl level for years. He has physical abilities and size that you can't teach. Technique is something Kugler could teach him and turn him into something special.

I would not however give up picks. I don't like trading up.
