    What about if that receiver was Marqise Lee? He is a draft eligible sophomore. And right now, Steelers are drafting at #19. And that could drop even more, real soon.

    There are some good safeties that could be had between rounds two and three this year. Tony Jefferson, Bacarri Rambo, and T.J. McDonald (yes--he has fallen some), Kenny Vaccaro, Zeke Motta, Shawn Williams (SS).

    Baltimore couldn't run right because Harrison crashed down the line hard on backside pursuit. Rice had no cutback lane.

    The Browns seemed to try to run both ways. And the runs I remember, I think they had more success running left directly at Harrison.

    Harrison is most effective chasing the back from behind. I'd be surprised if Baltimore didn't try and run more at him.
    I hope the Ravens believe they can run right at James, he is good at chasing down plays on the back side, but he is strong at the point of attack and stands up and/or sheds blockers as well. I have faith in Harrison; I hope they test him often. That's winning proposition for the Steelers, IMO.

    Well, how about that?- news is slow getting down here! Semi-glad Ta'amu is on the PS. Not convinced McLendon is anything more than a situational guy, and Chadman disagrees with McLendon outplaying Hampton. Hampton is down on previous years, but he's still ahead of his position rivals. Ta'amu is the one, if his head is on right. Might be a need to sign a mid-range FA to hold that spot after this year until Ta'amu plays well enough to win the spot.

    Safety is a massive problem. MASSIVE. Troy is constantly hurt, and Clark is older than Troy. Behind them- Will Allen & Ryan Mundy.

    Chadman likes Sanders. Really does. But he isn't an 'impact' WR like Wallace. If the Steelers lose Wallace, they will need that 'break the game open' type WR to replace him- and Brown & Sanders are more your 'move the chains' WR. So if Wallace goes- either a home-run hitting WR or a big target guy like Burress/T.O. will be required to make this offense hum.

    This guy is really coming on now that he is finally healthy. 3rd year pro and he's just 24 years old.

    now that he's healthy and starting to understand LeBeau's complex defensive schemes, which takes about 3 years...

    Woodley played predominantly on the right side at Michigan, maybe he could move back to the right and let Worilds play on the left.


    "A relentless pass rusher who led the team in quarterback sacks in each of his last two seasons, Woodley was the heart and soul of one of the most dominant defensive lines in college football in 2006. Thanks to the play of Woodley and defensive tackle Alan Branch, the Wolverines led the nation in rush defense, allowing just 43.38 yards per game, and ranked fourth nationally with an average of 3.23 quarterback sacks per game.

    Woodley's career came full circle during his time at Michigan. As a freshman, he played on the defensive line as a rush end, moving to right outside linebacker as a sophomore and junior. As a senior, he returned to the defensive line at right end."

    I just can't believe the quickness that some of you are using to throw Harrison out with the trash. He may be a cap casualty, but he still looks to have gas in the tank.
