Thread: Players I'm ok with at 18

    Re: Players I'm ok with at 18

    We won't move a pro bowl OLB to the inside to make room for a rookie. It won't happen. Now, moving Timmons to the outside is a remote possibility. Still creates a need on the inside.

    BTW...put me on the record as saying I am not on board with drafting an OLB (Graham, Kindle, or Weaetherspoon) with the 18th pick, when there are already two dominating OLB already in the Steelers starting line up. And also i'm not on board with drafting a player at a position that will result in minimal contribution for his rookie year and more than likely not having a chance of being the starter in his second year--C.J. Spiller. Makes no sense no matter how good that player is.

    I think Weatherspoon would kick inside for us....he has played both inside and outside.

    So you would want to have two guys inside (Weatherspoon and Timmons),who are both better suited for playing outside?? Not me!!!!

    I saw an interview with Weatherspoon during the Senior Bowl game and he said scouts have told him that he projects as a weakside OLB in a 4-3 scheme and the Inside Mike LB in a 3-4.

    Re: Players I'm ok with at 18

    i want no DB at 18 whatsoever unless it's Haden which is very very unlikely. If they have to get one other then Haden then make it Earl Thomas.

    Do NOT want a DE with 18 either. Most DE's are rated on there pass rushing ability. This is next to useless for us since our de's are gap pluggers and blocker occupiers who make it possible for our LB's to make the plays. These can be had in later rounds imo. In fact Ziggy's talents may be wasted in our d schemes considering my opinion mentioned here, though I have faith that lebeau sees a players particular strengths and will work his schemes to highlight these. We could have taken mauluga with that pick and taken a big body later maybe? Though I'd be lieing if I didn't tell you I did not want rey at the time since I assumed all the other teams that passed on him saw something I didn't

    I'm not a draftnik or college ball follower so little point in me dropping lots of names. Sooo, I would take:
    a top 2-3 OT (or maybe even 4 OT?)
    the top center (Pouncey sp?),
    the top guard (Iupati though what's this about being a holding machine?)
    a top 2 NT (Cody, Williams)

    After that my wants drop way down to a
    top saftey (based on their descriptions, I'd want Earl Thomas over Mays since it sounds like he has more ball hawking/playmaking skills ala Ed Reed)
    top 3 ILB (no idea who that might be?)

    I'm fine with the Steelers drafting anyone that does not play offense or special teams in the first round.

    1.15) Ryan Shazier - ILB/OLB
    2.46) Stephon Tuitt - DE
    3.97) Dri Archer - RB
    4.118 ) Martavis Bryant - WR
    5.157) Shaquille Richardson - CB
    6.173) Wesley Johnson - OT
    6.192) Jordan Zumwalt - ILB
    7.215) Daniel McCullers - DT
    7.230) Rob Blanchflower - TE
