Thread: Guys you want...guys you don't want

  1. #1

    Guys you want...guys you don't want

    I would love to see everyone's list of guys they would love to have and the guys they think will bust out of the league or don't fit our system/needs.

    Thomas...my favorite of this upcoming talent...does everything well. Can play any position in the secondary.

    Mays...4.43 40? Im not crazy about his coverage skills but the dude would be unstoppable around the LOS and could help us keep Troy healthy.

    Odrick...the guy will be a beast at the next level. Pro Bowler by year 3.

    Cody...I know I'm one of the few that like the guy...but I look past man boobs and look at the fact that Alabama had the best run D in the country. He made everyone around him look better. He will outweigh most NFL centers by 30-50 pounds. He won't rush the QB but he disrupts lanes and commands double teams. I don't care if he runs a 7.0 40...the guy is legit. He is the best run stop NT in the country.

    Williams...another solid pick. I'm not sure we need a NT this high now with the Hampton signing but he is a solid pick.

    Weatherspoon...I'm a fan...can do it all...tackling machine...good in coverage...think a better version of Timmons.

    Jake Ballard TE...I think the Spaeth project is over. If you want the next Heath Miller...look no further than the most impressive TE you have never heard about.

    Gerhart...I love this kid. He is the epitome of BnG. I really believe the Steelers will target him...if he is there in the third...we definitely take him.

    Who I don't want

    CJ Spiller...just shoot me and throw me off a bridge if we draft a back up running back with our first round pick. I would rather ish a razor blade than see his name pop up on my TV screen.

    Iupati...Guard at 18? Hecks no...especially a guy who had to hold all game long when facing top notch talent. OG is the least important position on the football field and easiest to fill with later round talents. Taking Iupati would be a superb waste of a high draft pick.

    Bruce Campbell= Jermaine Stephens...enough said about that.


    Trent Williams...whats up with all the OT talk? We have Starks and Colon...I'm ok with that.

    Shawn, totally with you on this one, except for the Cody thing, of course.

    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Re: Guys you want...guys you don't want

    Guys I want:

    Earl Thomas - only if he can play CB.

    Joe Haden - bad 40 time.

    Jared Odrick - Aaron Smith-clone?

    T. Cody - not in the 1st; #1 3-4 NT.

    Trent Williams - not in the 1st; if possible convert him to center.


    Guys I don't want:

    Taylor Mays - no free safety in the 1st round.

    Weatherspoon, McClain - no LBs in the 1st! (Steelers Way: draft LBs in the lower rounds and develop them)

    Bruce Campbell - looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane.

    Dan Williams - see T. Cody
    Woman: "Sir, what have you given us?"
    Benjamin Franklin: "A Republic, madam, if you can keep it."

    Re: Guys you want...guys you don't want

    dont want

    Dunlap... too skinney for us at 3-4 end// character issues

    iupati... same reasons shawn says

    Tate... hopefully these rumors are out of left field

    LB washington... again, looks too thin to play on the inside of our 3-4

    spoon- wouldn't hate the pick, think he's a better 4-3 OLB...already have one starting on the inside for us

    A davis - 21 reps at 330 LBs, u kiddin me?? guys 100 LBs less then him are benching more.... didnt look fluid running and in drills


    Want, mostly later round guys

    angerer - later round guy, inside LB mentality, steeler mentality

    micah - later round guy, strong stoudt guy, reminds me of earl holmes, dont care if he "cant jump high"

    jacoby ford - fast as fcuk, 5th WR, dangerous returner (saves at least 2 roster spots) possible gunner on ST (saving a 3rd roster spot)...would then be able afford a kick off specialist dressed on gameday... minny spent a #1 pick for similiar player

    Ghee. 6'0 and ran under 4.4. has the size we covet at CB

    Kyle wilson - strong , fast, good ball skills....something our current CBs wish they had

    tennant - got his weight up to 300, scored higest of the centers in drills, coming from good program (did pouncey work on stuff other then bench)

    Thomas - ball hawk at FS, mayock says has the ability to play corner. either way, possibly can line up with a WR.... a FS version of carnell lake?? with better hands?

    RO mcclain - no brainer

    CB out of fresno, late rounder. ran 4.4 and vertical was 46 IIRC. very athletic guy to groom

    We won't draft CJ Spust so I won't have to worry about it. But, I appreciate the offer. It's good to know you care.

    Re: Guys you want...guys you don't want

    Guys I want:

    1st round

    Earl Thomas
    Ro McClain
    Jared Odrick
    Trent Williams

    2-3
    Chad Jones
    Terrell Troup
    Jerry Hughes
    Koa Misi
    Darryl Washington

    4-5
    David Reed

    6-7
    Vincent Rey
    Nate Collins
    Jim Dray
    Sean Lissamore
    Kelton Tindal

    Guys I don't want

    Taylor Mays-no way is he a pro FS. He is way too stiff in coverage. We don't need a SS in the 1st round.

    Jamar Chaney-lot's folks put this guy in their mock. But, he does not fill the hole! He is late to get there in every game I've seen. Yes, he's fast. Yes, he's athletic. But, his instincts suck.

    Bruce Campbell-He is not a willing run blocker.

    Myron Rolle-has never been that good on the field.

    Travis Ivey-Huge and a big whimp.

    Micah Johnson-whiffs on smaller backs in space. Will be a liability vs the pass. Would be good if every team still ran between the tackles a lot. But, they don't.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Thats funny fezz...can i throw in the obligatory Carey Davis as well? How about Stapleton...oh wait, he's already out the door. I guess that means we need a safety, fullback, and guard in this draft...unless Mundy, no one, and Urbik have secretly shown something.
