He might well be a player on the rise, but if his standard right now is lower than Casey's, that's not good enough to start. Ta'amu was obviously drafted to compete for NT, but that mid-season brain explosion could cost him dearly. He's only signed for this year & next on the league minimum, so he's an easy cut if the coaches don't think his head is in the right place. Fangupo, on the other hand, has been signed for 4 years (did anyone know that??).

    Casey was paid $4m+ last season- he'd have to sign for no more than half of that, at best, for Chadman to think he's valuable enough to bring back. Given that there are now 3 young NT's on the roster, Chadman is no longer convinced that NT is the #1 priority in this draft (despite there being no real stand out future NT at this point). It might be that Hampton (on say $1m) combined with McLendon & either Ta'amu or Fangupo is the best scenario for next season. If neither McLendon or the successful Ta'amu/Fangupo can show enough to surpass Hampton next season, then the Steelers draft strategy will be forced on them in 2014- but that might be a palatable situation at this point.
    My Theory? They are going to see if Mclendon can play DE in the 3-4. At 6'4 with his body build, he may be a better end then nose in the 3-4. That would give them Ta'amu and Fangupo at NT. Mclendon can play the nose on passing downs.

    Just a theory.

    That could work- McLendon would become more of a 'roving' DL than specifically any 1 position. They could even play around with it & have Ziggy do the same.

    Of course- if neither Ta'amu or Fangupo pan out... back to square 1.

    Some good and interesting posts here regarding NT. If we're back to square one then I hope we get the chance to pick Chance, then maybe our backs can have success.
    If Chance is anywhere near as good as BIG RED (ALAN fANACA) get the pen out now, thats IF he's there when we pick.

    He's no Alan Faneca. Unless he's at the dinner table and you put a big 50 oz steak and an endless basket of fries in front of him. Then, he'd probably beat out AF at that.

    Well, right now he's eating ND linemen alive.

    I'd take Barrett Jones, he's played left tackle, left guard and center for Alabama during his career. If you like the idea of moving Pouncey to left guard then draft Jones and make him the center and move Pouncey. He's been a work horse for Alabama in his career, so maybe he can get through training camp without getting injured by Marcus Gilbert.

    2.46) Stephon Tuitt - DE
    3.97) Dri Archer - RB
    4.118 ) Martavis Bryant - WR
    5.157) Shaquille Richardson - CB
    6.173) Wesley Johnson - OT
    6.192) Jordan Zumwalt - ILB
    7.215) Daniel McCullers - DT
    7.230) Rob Blanchflower - TE

    I was thinking the same thing. IF you are gonna draft any of them take the C, and move Pouncey to LG.

    Realistically though, we are not going to be drafting another OLman in round 1 because Colon has to come back because of the huge cap hit we'd take if we cut him. Therefore, he's on the roster and will start. The OL is set. I'm convinced that a new OL coach and staying away from all these injuries, our young OL is set long term and now we can turn to replacing some of the older guys on defense. Again, my 2 cents, but its the most realistic approach.
