I would like those two Bayou Beng...errr...I'll go ahead and call 'em Tigers here...in the first two rounds.

I noticed that Walter projected Shayne Skov to come off the board 4 picks after us in round 3. If that were the case, I would go all defense in the first two days of the draft.

The 3-4 defense revolves around its linebackers, and a future starting LB corps of Mingo-Timmons-Skov-Woodley would be pretty formidable, with Worilds and Spence available to rotate in as well. I'm sure Ryan Clark would be more than happy to take a fellow LSU safety in Eric Reid under his wing and show him what it means to be a Steeler.

I would rather take Sam Montgomery (LSU) - Eric Reid (LSU) - Shayne Skov (Stanford) but that's just me

Mingo was a top 5 or 10 talent coming into the season. He has been a disappointment. He is not strong against the run (teams often run at him) and has not produced as much pressure as many suspected he would this season. However, he is probably the best athlete of the 3-4 conversion players available (and this is a decent crop if all the underclassmen declare). Mingo is a former safety who is a very fast, quick twitch player. He could end up being a better pro than college player. His best football may be ahead of him as he matures and fills out.

Could come down to character and work ethic for him.

Agree. I think Mingo is way overrated and could be a bust since he will have to learn the OLB position.

if the draft unfolded this way, I would go all defense the first three rounds:

Rnd 1: NT Johnathan Jenkins Georgia
Rnd 2: S Eric Reid LSU
Rnd 3: ILB Shayne Skov Stanford

Not sure about Mingo? I like Reid. Swope...meh...not interesting.

Since they have so many guys from LSU going to Pittsburgh, how bout Tyrann Mathieu later in the draft? I know he hasn't played, but a few years back he might have been the best player at LSU. Ike's getting older. Lewis and Allen can lock down the outside and Mathieu could be a playmaker in the slot.

We picked some guys with questionable character last year. Why not do it again? In reality, he'll end up with the Bengals.

Still think we need a dominant NT for this defense to reach it's optimum performance.

Jesse Williams is the guy that can take a game over up front- he's Chadman's #1 pick.

If the Steelers are losing Wallace (seems likely), they'll need to replace him. Da'Rick Rogers from Tennessee Tech is that big-bodied, physical WR that might fit the Todd Haley offense & give Ben his 'new Plex'. That'd be Chadman's Round 2 guy.

FS D.J. Swearinger from South Carolina would be a good target in Round 3. Physical, a bit of a ball hawk...Ryan Clark can't go forever- we'll need younger players in here soon.

Seriously would love that.

I think Jenkins is going to be a monster in the NFL. He reminds me of Richard Seymour (also from Georgia). Whether we stay 3-4 or go 4-3 Jenkins would be successful and a great pick. If anything I think the 3-4 would not allow him to fully exploit his abilities.

Love Reid as a future Safety, but is he a FS or SS since I heard it both ways. Need to see how Skov runs and how he can cover. Saw one game he did great but that is all I have seen of him.

Me too. He is the more polished of the two (compared to Mingo).

But if we are going to go OLB project (switching from college DE), and have to wait for at least two years to see the fruits of that labor, if he decides to declare, I would rather take UCLA's Anthony Barr. As freakishly athletic as Mingo and may even have a greater upside...considering he is playing his first ever year on defense (13.5 sacks 20.5 TFL's 5 PD's and 4 FF).

He has already stated he is not entering the draft. Sorry.

Had not heard that...but that is good. Another year would be good for him.
