    Zach Boren has LB instincts as good as any I've seen...to be so effective after playing FB for years is amazing...
    you certainly nailed it. Both of these guys I would love to see on the Steelers. Shoot, I would be on cloud 9 if the draft looked like Hankins, Simons, Boren in the first 3 rounds.

    Strike me interested in Boren late in the draft or as an UDFA.
    Doubt Boren gets out of the 4th at the latest.

    Apparently it's in Woodley's DNA to be a 4-3 DE. He can't do anything about it.

    What a silly statement.

    The suggestion that Woodley gets hurt because he drops into coverage (and not because of poor conditioning) is absolutely absurd.

    weren't we #1 in defense this year (as well as being very high in the rankings the last few years)


    and wasnt the offense pretty bad statistically?

    next year we might lose 2 more weapons on the offense in mendy and wallace


    so, is drafting another defensive player at #1 wise?

    No, I think with the desires of ownership in mind, we should draft Chance Warmack in the first round if he is there and a RB between rounds 2 through 4 and a mid round WR/ pass catching TE as well.

    I predict that Woodley gets himself in shape and rebounds with a good season, James Harrison returns after taking a pay cut and Jason Worilds is waiting for his opportunity to finally play and shine just like Keenan Lewis finally go to do this season.

    our situation is not that dire at OLB...

    Why not draft the top TE coming out first (since Heath is recovering) and then get an OL in 2-4? We'll have another OL for depth, but a TE for the future and to team with Heath when he returns. The bonus is that Haley might know how to use both TE's.

    We will need an OL to start and play not for depth if we lose Starks and Foster.
    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'll trust your judgement as you have watched more Ohio State than me. Very interesting prospect.
