    And, In the first round of the 2013 draft, the Steelers select Johnathan Jenkins NT from the university of Georgia.

    Jenkins would be good. Jesse Williams too.

    Chadman keeps casting his eye of Kewaan Short from Purdue though...

    Kaboley is an absolute joke. He tries to act like he has "insider" information which he doesn't.

    I don't think Hampton was completely healthy until about the 8th or 9th game and that coincided with the defense really picking it up. I'm not saying Hampton was great this year, but the last 7 or 8 games he has been more than serviceable as a two down NT.

    Just my opinion on Casey and I'd keep him if he's willing to play at vet minimum or just above.

    Starks needs to stay or you can kiss Ben goodbye whether you like Ben or not; with Adams or Gilbert on the left side Ben won't make it through 5 games before he's done for the year.

    If Casey did something that would uncharacteristic for him, which is make a commitment to getting himself into the best shape of his life; there might be a spot for him. But I don't think he will. I'll kind of miss him, but I think he will be gone. Starks definitely has been a very steady presence on the line. He should be retained. He is the smartest O-line player they have. He is not old for that position.

    I think Hampton should not be resigned. Unless its for vet minimum. I'd rather take my chances on a hungry McClendon. Not sure why we didn't see him more often this year.

    You didn't hear much from Starks this year, which as a LT, is the best thing you can hope for. Great year for him.
