    Best of the Rest...

    Here is my draft board at this point.

    I've eliminated 3-4 DEs as our cupboard is full.

    In the fourth, I like

    1. Tawain Jones RB E. Wash
    2. Brandon Burton CB Utah
    3. Marcus Cannon OG TCU (his cancer is very treatable and I'm pulling for him)
    4. Davon House CB N Mexico
    5. Rashad Carmichael CB Va Tech
    6. Chris Carter OLB Fresno St
    7. Quinton Carter FS Oklahoma
    8. Sam Acho OLB Texas
    9. Kendall Hunter RB Ok St
    10. D. J. Williams TE Arkansas

    In the fifth, I like

    1. Cortez Allen CB Citadel
    2. Richard Sherman CB Stanford
    3. Colin McCarthy ILB Miami
    4. Shiloh Keo SS Idaho
    5. Niles Paul WR Nebraska
    6. Jeremy Kerley WR TCU
    7. Ian Williams NT Notre Dame
    8. Casey Matthews ILB Oregon
    9. Deunta Williams FS N Carolina
    10. Jerrell Powe NT Mississippi
    11. Clint Boling OL Georgia

    In the sixth or seventh, I like

    1. Virgil Green TE Nevada
    2. Weslye Saunders TE S Carolina
    3. Tyrod Taylor Wildcat QB/WR Va Tech
    4. Josh Portis QB Cal-Pa
    5. Stephen Burton WR West Texas A&M
    6. Kendric Burney Nickel Corner N Carolina
    7. Buster Skrine Nickel Corner Chatanooga
    8. Tandon Doss WR Indiana
    9. Jalil Brown CB/S Colorado
    10. David Mims OT Va Union
    11. Denarius Moore WR Tennessee

    Who do you like?
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I want Edmond Gates...I believe he visited the Steelers. He suffered an injury during senior bowl week which keeps his draft value down because he is from a small school. I believe this guy can be Mike Wallace part 2 if he works at it. Gates has comparable speed to Wallace and will most likely get drafted in round 4.

    Another late round WR to consider is Ricardo Lockette. He has a great combination of size and speed. I was watching the Parcells draft special earlier this week and when he was asked about a sleeper to look out for he mentioned Lockette. Lockette can probably be had in the 6th or 7th round because he also comes from a small school.
    The Steelers’ went through seven consecutive drafts (2003-09) without taking an offensive lineman in the first two rounds, the longest such streak by any franchise this century.

    Re: Best of the Rest...

    Steelers could go BPA...but we still need a couple of areas addressed. One is probably a TE. But that will likely either be a 7th round guy like Lee from Marshall maybe. Or a 7th/FA like Saunders. I still would like a PURE OG, and the kid Hurd is probably the best, but we will likely not have a chance at him in the Late 4th. I personally LOVE the OT Hairston from Clemson. Can't believe these so-called experts have him rated so low. Like I said, in my mind, he is a better chance to succeed then Sherrod does. WR is gonna be addressed tomorrow. And since two of the three we brought in are now gone, that might mean the Tennessee kid Denarius Moore might be our guy. But, if they want height, Terrence Toliver is a good 5th round target. I also think we need a change of pace 3rd down RB. Some here are pimping Tiawan Jones in round 2 ( Ridiculous )...but I think Derrick Locke of Kentucky is a better, and more accomplished RB who fits the bill. Of course they might just pass, and look to sign a undrafted one later on. Of course many fans want to see us get a K, and face it, Henery is the cream of the crop. And we still need to address the NT spot. Powe is still available. But again, Character concerns, and his effort on the field at times has been questioned. Kearse is a late round possibility, but he ain't contributing anytime soon even IF he stuck.




    All in all, we did address 3 major issues with 3 kids from Big Time programs. And as my dad says, if your gonna swing and miss....swing and miss BIG!!

    This local product also wouldn't upset me......






    Jason Pinkston
    SI Grade
    2.54
    Grading System
    Position: T
    Class: 5Sr
    School: Pittsburgh
    Conference: Big East
    HT: 6-3.5
    WT: 317
    40 Time: 5.39
    Biography: Three-year starter at left tackle awarded all-Conference honors the past two years.

    Positives: "Solid pass protector who blocks with solid fundamentals. Bends his knees, plays with good pad level, and keeps his feet moving. Gets leverage on opponents, quick with his hands, and effectively uses them throughout the action. Immediately gets off the snap into blocks, is resilient, and stays with the action. Stays square and effectively uses body positioning to seal defenders from the action. Flashes ability in motion, getting out to the second level and removing linebackers."

    Negatives: "Overextends into blocks, which adversely affects his balance. Lacks dominant strength and really does not get much movement at the point of attack. Struggles against power edge rushers."

    Analysis: "Pinkston has been a productive blind side protector for Pittsburgh since his sophomore season and has enough skill to play the left tackle position in the NFL. He may move into guard based on his size, but he offers the ability to play in a conventional offense or in a zone blocking system."

    Projection: 4th

    Re: Best of the Rest...

    Jordan Cameron might actually be an interesting player- not a 'classic' TE, could he almost be used as a split-end possession reciever type, and somewhat replace Ward's numbers in time? Particularly if Arians is still playing 2 TE sets...

    Re: Best of the Rest...

    I saw back when he had his own workout that both Tomlin and the WR coach was at Tandon Doss's workout. Doss is definitely the best remaing WR. He is electric out on the field/ Super fast, and productive. But I DOUBT he falls to us. Played this season with a groin injury, and his average times were efeected by it. He's a 4.3 guy for sure. Anyone who has seen him play in 2009 knows this.
