    For what it's worth, Spence was standing on the sidelines with a big brace on his leg on Sunday.

    I've heard nothing but I can't be optimistic about his career chances given the multiple areas of damage he did to his knee. It's a shame because his explosiveness was his greatest asset and that will be the last thing he gets back after an injury like that. I could see him at less than 100% all of next year and if he ever gets back it may not be until 2014.
    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!

But remember that we could also use a safety or two in this next draft, and there appear to be numerous prospects who might intrigue us on the first or second day of the draft (Eric Reid, Tony Jefferson, T.J. McDonald, Robert Lester, Kenny Vaccaro, Bacarri Rambo, or Matt Elam). If Harrison's injuries continue to linger and neither Carter nor Worilds step up to the plate as expected, another OLB prospect may be coming. And depending on what they decide to do with Wallace and Mendenhall for the future (since both of their contracts are up after this season, a new WR or RB may be in the works).
    Ruthless,

    I agree about this ILB class.

    I disagree about Skov in the second. He has very good instincts and is tough and fearless. But, I think his athleticism is limited. He seems to gather himself when redirecting and has trouble corralling very athletic RBs because of this stiffness. He is coming off a major knee injury. And, he has also had a DUI in the past year. I wouldn't touch Skov before the third, maybe later.

    Here are the guys I like at 3-4 ILB

    Te'o in the first
    LSU's Minter in the second

    After that I like the following guys...

    Kiko Alanso-Oregon. Very solid filling running lanes and great form tackles.
    Penn State's Hodges - Very athletic as he often covers slot receivers. Will need to fill out frame. But could develop into a good starter.
    Penn State's Mauti - he is an emotional leader and would be a special teams wrecking ball

    My favorite ILB project is Devonte Holloman from SC. He is a 6'2 and 241 pound former safety who is still learning the position, but is cat quick and is a fantastic pass rusher. He is probably a day two pick. He could also play OLB in a pinch. He has Timmons-like athleticism.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    I asked Jim Wexell who reports for the Steelers and he said (based on asking Tomlin) that nobody will know until he gets back on the field and does football drills.

    I also asked about Decastro and was told his recovery will be complete without any effects of the injury!

    That is terrific news about Decastro. One thing regarding Spence...he wasn't all that 'fast' prior to the injury. I think he ran something like a 4.65 or 4.7 40yds so maybe if he can heal up he will still be alright. His thing was more deciphering the play prior to the snap and reacting before anyone else which to me is more mental.
