    I don't see any legit OT prospects at 1.24. USC's Matt Kalil, Iowa's Riley Reiff, and Stanford's Jonathan Martin will all likely be off the board in the top half of the first round (and therefore out of our reach in round 1). The next tier of OT's (the Florida State pair Zebrie Sanders and Andrew Datko plus Ohio State's Mike Adams, among others) are likely day two picks.
    The player that interests me is Cordy Glenn who could develop into a good OT, maybe even a LT, but would be able to step in immediately at Guard. He will likely be there at 1.24 unless he just blows away teams leading up to the draft.

    My non-professional football scout opinion is that Zebrie Sanders is just too light to be a factor in Year 1. Datko and Adams are proably late Round 2 picks at best. I also really like Kevin Zeitler from Wisconsin as a Round 2 consideration.

    I have no faith that Colon comes back healthy or stays that way so I'm with those who expect another year of the "OL Shuffle"
    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!

I also know there is alot of Colon haters. However, when healthy, & it appears that will be the case, he is a very good RT. This OL is one OG away from being very good and a second OG (which may be on the roster or in the draft) away from turning that corner and finally being a strength. Bash who you want...But I will take the 3 penciled starters and build.
    Count me in as one of the Colon haters. Not really a hater but definately a basher. The guy is a walking penalty flag machine. He hasn't played in over two years so it will take him at least a year of playing before he gets back to his mediocre self. I don't know if Ben will last that long. The biggest thing Colon has going for himself is he's Ben's BFF.

    I agree. Not a great OT draft in the middle & end of the 1st. You throw some of these guys in some of the last 3 years of draft classes the scale would widen. There will be teams overdrafting them on need in the late 1st early second and I assume the Steelers won't be one. I don't see the Steelers looking for one early if they feel Colon will be fines & Gilbert will move to LT. Sounds like this will be the case. My gut tells me we won't see and OT inside the 1st three rounds.

    Not a good year for OG at the Top but you could land one that may have you shaking your head in a couple of years in the 2nd & 3rd. I want Decastro in the 1st. Only OL I would take if he fell at #24...Which won't happen. Out of the guys early who may be in our range... I Like Washington & Zeitler in the 2nd or Nix in the 3rd. I actually believe all of them will win a starting spot day 1.
    1st (T-D) Kelvin Benjamin WR
    2nd Bradley Roby CB

    5a Dri Archer RB
    5b Kevin Pierre-Louis LB

    To count on Willie Colon in any capacity after missing the past two seasons due to injury is retarded. Heck, even relying on Pouncey at this point is worrisome considering his ankle history.

    This time last year no one thought Marcus Gilbert could come in and start immediately. I think Zebrie Sanders could start and do a solid job at RT. And I know if Cordy Glenn is there at 24 he can start at LT or G and be solid.

    I hope you guys are right. I just know that I was impressed with the job Gilbert did coming in as a rookie. I don't think Colon would have done nearly as well.

    Agreed! I've been on his band wagon all last college season

    Disagree!! Strongly. I believe he is bigger than what he is listed at ( 6ft 6 307). He supposedly under went a severe weight training program last spring and got bigger and stronger. Regardless of his weight is is reported to be a very strong player and he shows that on the field. Also not sure what it is but he has a tremendous wing span. Which for pass blocking is a plus. Also he is a 4 year start. That is huge.

    By the way..Marcus Gilbert his sophmore year at Florida was 6 ft 6 298.

    I am not on the Willie Colon bandwagon as much as I am on drafting Zebrie Sanders or Cordy Glenn for that spot.
