    I'm a little surprised on his thoughts regarding Thomas.

    Earl Thomas himself said he thinks he is a better CB than safety and that he enjoys playing CB better. Ed Douchette is looking at Earl Thomas a a safety only, whereas Thomas should be viewed as a play-making CB/S that offers position flexibility.

    If Earl Thomas is there at #18, the Steelers will select him.

    I do agree with Ed that OT is our other biggest need after CB, we have very little depth (Tony Hills sucks) behind our starting OTs. I wouldn't trade up for Anthony Davis though, I would rather draft OT Jared Veldheer in the 2nd round. Veldheer placed in the Top-10 of all OL in all six categories that were tested at the Scouting Combine, this is the type of athletic marvel that can develop under the tutelage of our new OL Coach Sean Kugler for a year or two behind Max Starks and Willie Colon and then become a starter.

    I took his comments as saying no way Thomas or Berry would be available at 18, not that the Steelers wouldn't take them.

    He also says he would trade up for Anthony Davis. Trade up.

    Oooh! Oooh! Chadman's final mock just got a heart starter from Ed- Kareem Jackson was the 'sneaky' name he mentioned over Wilson...

    Here's the bet- Steelers will hope to trade down, but failing that, will select Jackson at #18.

    If the Steelers take Kareem Jackson at 18, I'll be very disappointed.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    No, he said slim and none to the chances of them drafting a safety:


    texas_steel: Whats the chances of drafting a safety with the first overall pick..What if Berry or Thomas was there at 18?

    Ed Bouchette: I would say slim and none

    I guess Ed missed on the QB issue since it looks like we are signing Leftwich:

    Ed Bouchette: To do, what? If they were going to look at Bulger, I don't think they would have re-signed Batch. They knew the Rams were going to release Bulger and yet still re-signed Batch. I think they have their 3 QBs, will pick up another young arm somewhere for camp and if Ben gets suspended, go with that.

    Very interesting...Ben's punishment is being released before the draft and we sign Leftwich. Hmmm....Do you think we have a trade partner? Seriously...before you all explode, I hope we don't trade Ben, unless, of course, he told Tomlin to shove his zero tolerance thingy....
