    I like Thaddeus Gibson. He has tons of athleticism...plays faster than he times. He is extremely twitchy...terrific quickness...led the Buckeyes with TFL. But, he is raw...even though he is a physical tackler can be often overpowered by bigger linemen. He is a finesse pass rusher...has no real bull rush. He is one of those guys who could go middle/late first...but I'm not sure he won't slip to middle second.
    Sounds like Bruce Davis
    A bit...but Davis had ALOT more college productivity. Gibson is a bit quicker and stronger than Davis...has more upside. But, I don't think we need another OLB.

    i wonder if the East Carolina player is supposed to Linval Joseph, not Reshad.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I don't think OLB is a priority in this draft but we need a good backup for James/Woodley.

    I would select Eric Norwood from Univ of SC, if he is available in 3rd Rd or take a flier on 4-3 DE who can be converted into an OLB in late round.
    Steelers Draft
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    If by some miracle Gibson falls to the third...I would consider him. But, we have so many needs...and OLB is way down on that list.
