    That is an excellent mock draft and well thought out. Oh, wait, you didn't do one, well, if you had done one it would be an excellent mock draft. I'm mocking you hatred of mock drafts. :P

    Pappy
    Thank you Pappy I didn't work hard on it


    but had you worked hard on a mock draft i'll bet it would have been excellent, well-thought out and worthy of praise!
    And compliments!

    Re: The Draft?

    This is one of the most wonderful times of year. Hope and anticipation of what lies ahead and it's prolonged for an extended period of time - best of both worlds.

    Once it's over, you know what you have. Anticipation is always way better than reality.

    Without a draft, there is no Ben, Troy, Aaron, Hines, etc.

    Who's gonna be next?

    This is excitement in its purest form.

    It's like we're awake all night and we all know the Christmas presents are under the tree downstairs, but mom and dad won't let us tear into the presents until the sun comes up.

    Here's another mock for you - the Flippy mock:::

    1. Eric Berry, S Tennessee - trade this year and next year's #1 and Limas Sweed to KC for the #5 pick and instantly fixes our D. Goes down as Colberts best move in team history.

    2. Jared Odrick, DE Penn St - trade our 2, 3, 4, and 5 picks with Arizona to move into the end of round 1 and get the next Aaron Smith. The rotation of 4 top DEs gives us the consistent pass rush we've been lacking.

    5. John Skelton , QB Fordham - Possibly Dennis Dixon's backup.

    5. Deji Karim, RB Southern Illinois - The heir apparent to Willie Parker

    6. Seyi Ajirotutu, WR Fresno State - Big athletic kid to be what we all hoped Limas Sweed would have been

    7. Kevin Matthews, C Texas A&M - It's Bruce Matthew's son. Who knows? Maybe he's the next HOF Steeler center.

    7. Crezdon Butler, CB Clemson - It's time to upgrade Willie Gay

    Eh, I think the most wonderful time of the year is the playoffs when we are in them.

    But when we are not in the playoffs, even though I will watch those games because I love football, I am a bitter fan nonetheless, with thoughts shifting to the draft way too early.

    You prefer this to actual football? If you enjoyed learning about potential Steelers you'd realize Spiller shouldn't be one. :P

    I prefer actual football over the off season just like spring over winter. I recognize the regular season ends but football doesn't so this is just a new phase.

    From a message board perspective I absolutely prefer this time of year through the end of trainingcamp over the regular season. That period is about optimism, speculation and hope for the future.

    This board during the regular season becomes alot about know it alls but have never beens spouting their criticisms and "expertise" and telling us all what the professionals do wrong and how they would do better. The "haters" crawl out from under their rocks during the regular season everytime there is a stumble and rehash their same old condemnations over and over. This time of the year, many of the "haters" vanish and we actually get good discussion.

    BTW Spiller should absolutely be a Steeler for the many reasons I have so eloquently articulated.
