    Yup.

    And so, while all of us know that the draft was better for fans on the weekend, it will never go back for the above reasons. It does make you wonder though, why they don't do one round a...

    For sure! It is a red-flag in that regard.

    They thought so little of Worilds, that they drafted Jones to replace him. They (further) gave Jones (who obviously had a poor grasp of the system and...

    I did expect him to "dominate" the year following his ankle. One would assume a full off-season to be enough to heal that properly. He didn't. But no matter. I also do expect him to come back and...

    I agree.

    I know very little about Roby, the Abbredaris schooling, or anything else. But I have a sense that people are over valuing the kid (as he moves back up the draft board) due to his great...

    Yup, just like the Decastro situation a couple years back. I have heard rumblings (e.g. I think Casserly said he preferred Lewan over Matthews, at around 10 if both were available). This would be a...

    I would be thrilled with Zumwalt in the later rounds. He is a tough guy, a hitter, and would bring (at least) a needed dose of attitude to our team. The kid is tough.

    Too bad it isn't a perfect world, because I agree 100%. Especially when you see all the yellow seats that I seem to see (i.e. empty seats) more and more at Heinz. Truth is, I really don't know how...

    I've warmed on Ebron, to the point of him being maybe #2-3 on my (realistic) wish list. I've read scouts say that he displays a willingness to block (which is generally better than "the ability to...

    Are they producing one this year? I've bought it probably since it started, and it has now grown into something of a habit for me. But since the company went belly-up last year, I was wondering about...

    Saying they got better at Safety is presumptuous. Mitchell isn't an obvious upgrade over Clark. Clark had a down year to be sure, but he did know his role in playing next to Polamalu. If Mitchell...

    I think mentioning Curtis Brown with Roby is a fine comparison. Both have great physical ability, and both seem to lack that sense for the game. And comparing Roby to Adams isn't far-off either, as...

    I was thinking the same thing. We need value. In a pure value sense, taking Evans (which then probably takes us out of the WR market in the following rounds) is probably not the best value decision.

    I would not take either, probably not in the 2nd either. IMO, the BPA at that point would be Zach Martin, Trent Murphy... and maybe also Marquis Lee.

    That's probably right.
    Though, if Bell is the especially versatile weapon that he was purported to be (when we drafted him), I'd like to think they add some wrinkles (e.g. splitting Bell wide?) that...

    Yeah, and it could be a viable strategy if you signed said 30-somethings to modest, performance-based deals. AFAIK, Tuck and Woodley signed pretty good contracts for themselves.

    IIRC, what got Tye Hill drafted in the first was his 40 time. As a collegiate corner, I certainly don't recall Hill coming with the credentials of a Dennard. I do see your Leon Hall comparison. I...

    For some reason, I think of Joe Haden when I think of Dennard. Both dominated in coverage as college football players... both were knocked primarily for less-than-stellar speed.

    This is not one of those cases that things are apparent. In other words, it is just about seeing impending signs. I made a point about the defense in '11, when we were ostensibly ranked #1. Most...

    It's a funny thing: (As a fan), if you express any true, realistic thoughts that aren't, "We are going for #7", you aren't a true fan. In 2010 or 11, guys were calling our D old (e.g. Warren Sapp, I...

    It's a joke, but it really isn't.

    This is a key draft. We are kind of like the 49ers, back in the late 90's: salary cap hell, coming off a mediocre run after a LONG range of success. People were...

    All questions up in the air AFAIC. The defense is wholly mediocre IMO, and is the side that needs major focus. We can use a WR, but even without one, I can see our offense (with an emphasis on run,...
