    For the record- if the Steelers ARE going OLB at some stage in the first 2 rounds- Mercilus & Bruce Irvin would be the 2 Chadman would consider the best options.

    Not being funny- but can you explain why? He's 260lbs, which is bigger than Farrior ever was, and quite agile.

    There may have been a slight over reaction in there somewhere, Chadman suspects...

    Too much baggage for my taste re: Irvin.

    I hope all this talk of taking more LBs in the first 2 rounds is a moot point. We need big uglies now as in an OT, 2 OGs, and a NT, Casey and Colon are no guarantees to perform at a high level early this season if at all. At least we have Harrison, Timmons, Foote, Sylvester, and Woodley to start this year at full strength.

    Read an interesting report on him that suggets that the way he interviewed & addressed his previous issues may actually get people onside with him- a guy that went through the tough times & emerged a better man- sort of deal.

    In Chadman's opinion, there is NO BETTER pass rusher in the draft.

    I agree. IMO, G and OT are our biggest needs. It just seems like the Steelers FO places higher value on defense and pass rushers especially. If one of the premiere pass-rushers fell to us I don't think they would be able to resist.
    BnB Mock 2014
    1. Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
    2. Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
    3. Dominique Easley, DT, Florida
    4. Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
    5. Jordan Zumwalt, ILB, UCLA
    5. Jerick McKinnon, RB, Georgia Southern
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB, Notre Dame
    6. Beau Allen, NT, Wisconsin
    7. Shaquille Richardson, CB, Arizona (went to BnB's Los Alamitos High School)


    Another AS masterpiece.

    I am a fan of Bruce Irvin.

    If Steelers want an OLB then i would go with Bruce Irvin or Nick Perry. BTW how can anyone go wrong with a PREDATOR aka Bruce Irvin

    More defense early in this draft will doom any attempts Haley makes to improve the offense. We've got about 5 more year of ben being the starting QB. I would prefer he was not injured on the sideline for a significant part of that time. We need OL. Defense does not win in today's NFL, offense wins.
