    If that is your starting 5 then you have zero depth and you have players who in their short history have proven to be injury prone. You had better be drafting OL in this draft early and often.

    Beachum is more a swing guy who can play both OG positions and a little RT but not a starter. Hell that plan for '13 may convince even me we should keep 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!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB
    7a. Aaron Colvin, CB
    7b. Storm Johnson, RB

    Totally agree. To let the only player on the OL to play every snap walk away is totally stupid and is why our offense can't take a step to the next level. Until we fix the OL we will never have a offense performing to their capabilities.

    I'm sure we will then spend three of the first five picks in the draft on the defense.

    Expect 8-8 again next year if this happens.

    close, 2 out of 4 with Pouncey and DeCastro. Gilbert and Adams were both 2nd rounders.

    but you're right, we have invested very heavily on the OL in recent years and it's really hard to imagine yet another OL being drafted in the first round when we have so many other needs also.

    When the defense is old and the offense is young, that's what happens.


    1.15 WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
    2.46 TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
    3.97c ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford
    4.118 CB Philip Gaines, Rice
    5.157 OT James Hurst, North Carolina
    5.173c RB Jerrick McKinnon, Georgia Southern
    6.192 CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
    6.215c DE Deandre Coleman, California
    7.230 NT Zack Kerr, Delaware

    I think everyone would be ok with that lineup if Beachum can hold his own, the LT position could be of concern if Gilbert doesn't work out, but thats his natural poistion so who knows.
    It sounds logical what ED stated, Max is a fan favorite and there is some comfort there with him at LT however the Steelers have to make some tough choices this may be one of them.
    If the Steelers want to make some tough choices carve some salary out of the defense where several players are not earning enormous contracts. Once again, try to play offense with bargain basement investments and pile the riches on a defense that can't sack the QB or Intercept a pass. I think Colbert has become retarded if this happens.

    I was counting Warmack as the 3rd interior OL in the first round in 4 years' time (2010, 2012, 2013) in that scenario.

    never thought I would see the day!

    I agree though, that if this is the plan, warmack makes a lot of sense.

    Yeah,
    It really bothers the Steelers fans that they would let Max leave when he was the most consistent and injury free O-lineman. Personally I would keep max especially when their offense has problems scoring points. If they let Max go and Gilbert doesn't cut it the outcry will be heard around the world.
    They might want to rethink this senario before they make a harsh decision, Ben's health is at stake when you have a sub-par LT if thats what Gilbert will be.

    oh yeah, i just re-read your post.

    would you select Warmack in this draft if he were still available?

    I could live with this OL. Depth would be the only issue if one goes down.
