Also is there any chance we could trade Colon or Gilbert (if Adams is the RT for the future?) Just a crazy idea. Hate to go off topic but would any team trade for say Harrison, Troy, Woodley or Ike? If you just want to cut the money for the old or lazy dogs why not see if you can get something for them? Just another crazy thought. Hey there was a thread on trade Ben!:eek:
Isn't the latest information that the Steelers will get rid of Colon and may try Beachum at LG because Todd Haley wants his linemen to be smaller, more stout, and more mobile? Is Warmack at 350lbs mobile at all? I watched Alabama a couple times this season but never keyed in on him specifically.
we aren't drafting OL... we have more than enough young guys on the OL right now who haven't had time to develop or gel due to injuries.
When I look at O-line in this draft, I'm thinking Left Tackle. That is the most important position on the o-line, and we don't have one with Max likely gone. Adams, Beachum, and Gilbert all have struggled pass protecting on the right side so I have zero confidence they will suddenly figure it out against faster elite pass rushers on the left. I wouldn't be surprised if the Steelers see Beachum as a guard anyway. With Lane Johnson now considered a first round pick by many pundits, there is a chance that either he or (the more polished, but slightly less athletic) Eric Fisher may be available at 17. I think the Steelers should consider either player if available. Fisher is likely ready to start now and Johnson could end up developing into a pro bowler.
Warmack is a heck of a player, but I'll be fine if we don't get him. We have much more pressing needs.
