    Steelers draft C Alex Mack

    As per Mel Kiper Jr on ESPN...

    If the draft goes as per Mel Kiper Mock Draft i would be really upset if we passed on Michael Oher at 28..Steelers need to trade their 3rd Rd pick to get Michael Oher..I think he is franchise LT.Also is it worth to spend a first Rd pick on a Center? A D-Line here would be more useful.

    I don't think Oher is making it to the 28th pick. Plus only 4 OT's going in the 1st round? I know a lot of teams loaded up last draft but I still see more than 4 going in the 1st round this year...

    I think Eugene Monroe OT Virginia will be the 1st Tackle of the board. Bengals should get a chance to draft Andre Smith.

    Combines should be interesting. QBs were disappointing in Senior Bowl. Sam Bradford made a mistake of staying in school. He easily could have been No.1 pick.

    I wouldn't spend a first round pick on a DL. You can normally find 3-4 DL in the middle rounds. I would rather see the team draft a corner in round one if they are not going to take an OL.
    The Steelers’ went through seven consecutive drafts (2003-09) without taking an offensive lineman in the first two rounds, the longest such streak by any franchise this century.

    I think it really depends on which player is available.

    If Mack and Duke off the board and Tyson Jackson still available Steelers should pick him or trade down and get Ron Brace, NT from BC.

    In this case yes.

    I agree. Mack will be the next great Steeler C. He will start immediately at LG this year and move to C when Hartwig leaves. Lock up a LT in FA (Starks or Carey) and draft Mack in the 1st...Then add a name like Loadholt, Tupou, Johnson, or Urbik...The OL starts to look good again!!!

    I hope Mack is still there with the 32nd pick. I'll feel comfortable he will be there if Miami doesn't draft him with the 25th pick.
