    Dale Lolley on the Offensive Line

    Thinks that four of the starting spots will go to the recent high draft picks. Also mentions that Steelers are looking to get more athletic and have added players recently to move in that direction.

    Either of the two linemen from Alabama Warmack or Jones seemingly would fit this criteria and personally, I'd be happy with either guy at 1.17. There is also a good likelihood that one or both will be available when the Steelers pick at 1.17.

    Barrett Jones is not a mid first round worthy pick. He will be selected in the late 1st or top half of the 2nd round. I like him, but not at pick 17.

    Haley is going to have more input on the O-line this year and he is recommending some o-line coaching candidates. This is per Dulac.

    If we were fortunate to land Warmack I would be just as thrilled as last year when we drafted DeCastro.
    The projected line assuming we don't reatain Starks, Foster, or Colon.


    LT Adams/ Gilbert



    LG Warmack/ Beachum



    C Pouncey/ Legursky



    RG DeCastro / Melecki?



    RT Gilbert/Adams


    Beachum, Legursky and Melecki would be backups.

    The interior of that line would be strong...Warmack,Pouncey,DeCastro and if we get decent play from the tackles this line could become dominate, something we fans would love to see and Ben as well.

    I would take Warmack over any other prospect in round one IF he is there.

    i sure hope he gets the guy he wants. hopefully the rooneys will see how tomlins hires have turned out and make the call on the OL coach.
