    Alec Ogletree's last game he didn't have John Jenkins playing in front of him and he still looked dominant.
    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!

    Nix and Tuitt are still a work in progress. They are not first round picks this year. Maybe next year.
    Jarvis Jones clogs up the middle for Ogletree? Wow, your really reaching buddy.

    No body said anything about clogging up the middle for him. I said he plays in front of him. Having the best defensive player in this draft playing outside LB off the edge for any ILB is a plus.

    This cracks me up Felt. I thought you said you watch a lot of Notre Dame football? Well if you have then you would know Te'o was used much differently the three previous years to this. Te'o played a lot more down hill prior to this year. Coming forward. This year he was used a lot more in pass coverage. You notice a decline in tackles, TFL's, sacks, etc. But this year more INT's and PD's than previous years. His cover skills are not great by any means but he did improve enough for them to use him differently this year. Two years ago he had 128 tackles, 13.5 TFL's, 5 sacks, 0 INT's, and 2 PD's. But this past season he had less tackles, less TFL's (more than half as many), and only 1.5 sacks. Yet he had 7 INT's and 11 PD's.


    Now having said that, like I have been saying all along, if he were drafted to play ILB for the Steelers, playing next to Timmons, I would hope the Steelers would utilize him more for his strength..coming forward. Timmons would no doubt get the bulk of the coverage assignments of the too. And rightfully so, he is better at it.

    Different roles and different responsibilities. Notre Dame has plenty of good players on D.

    Wanna put a wager on whether Te'o goes in the first 10 picks? Just a friendly wager for one of us to eat crow in a few months.

    Walterfootball is a very knowledgeable and reputable draft site:

    1(17) Pittsburgh Steelers: Manti Te'o, ILB, Notre Dame

    I think this is a good spot for Manti Te'o. He was brutal in the national championship, but that shouldn't erase all of his other great tape. He's still the favorite to be the first inside linebacker off the board, and the 16-25 range seems right for him. Besides, this is the type of move the Steelers normally make. They often are able to snag talented prospects who fall to them later in the first round for whatever reason.

    The Steelers have shown interest in first-round inside linebackers. They wanted Dont'a Hightower last April, but David DeCastro was just too good to pass up at No. 24 overall. Pittsburgh still has to find an inside linebacker because Larry Foote was awful this year. He finished near the top of dubious rankings like missed tackles and touchdowns allowed by players at his position.

    Pick change; previously Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB LSU

    Te'o had 7 picks because the DL was getting a ton of pressure this year.... The difference between the DL this year vs the the last 3 is huge.

    I heard they are calling Te'o "The Hawaiian Brian Boz"

    I agree, I didn't think Larry Foote was awful this past season either. nevertheless, Foote did finish near the top of dubious rankings like missed tackles and touchdowns allowed by players at his position.
