    And With the 17th Overall Pick, the Steelers Choose....

    Manti Te'o. LB Notre Dame

    Just watching this interview on Couric's show. What a very interesting young man.. Very impressed. Would make me a proud Steeler fan if he were to wear the Black and Gold. I hope all of you out there get to watch the entire interview.

    The most impressive line in the interview (to me) went something like this-

    From his dad.... Manti is a kid.. A 21 year old learning to be a man... And I love him...

    2 very proud parents up there on stage with him.....

    This guy is gonna be special where ever he goes, not only on the field but off as well..

    I have a feeling he will be picked way ahead of us though.

    Before all the hype he was a second rounder. He's not close to Kuechly who was chosen in the top 10 last year. He will be available to us at 17 and we will pass. He will end up going to the Ravens in the 20's. Just watch.

    He's a bigger version of Lofa Tatupu.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say we either pick a CB/S, an OT, or a WR with the 17th pick.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    I don't think you are out on a limb at all. I'd say DB, LT, and WR are three of our four top needs along with a pass rusher if we cut Harrison. RB will also be a need, but there is not much mid-1st round talent out there so that is unlikely. OG, TE, and ILB all depend on the health of current players and can be filled in subsequent rounds if need be.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I understand that, but doesn't mean the Steelers do or don't.

    He won't even be the highest rated MLB on their board. That will go to Ogletree, Minter, and/or Arthur Brown.

    Eddie- why not? What do you know about him, other than all the crap you've seen in the news?

    the "crap" in the news is beyond plenty, but I just think he is vastly overrated as a player.

    Agree 100%

    He reminds me a lot of Lofa Tatupu and A.J. Hawk. Good not great players.

    Well, to others he reminds us of Brian Urlacher or Ray Lewis.. He has all the intangibles, athleticism to be a great one.. Better than James Farrior, and he was a 1st rounder... Anyway...

    pfelix73 I dont think you are that far off. The kid doesn't do any spectacular but he does most everything well. And what makes him who he is and will be at the next level is...he's a football player.
