    So this is what makes a player a bust now?

    His performance on the field over the past 4 years does not reflect that. In fact it says the opposite.

    While his strength isn't thumping...he is electric...could even put him at OLB. Gotta love a linebacker that fast and athletic.
    In a lot of those plays he's not even getting blocked. The guy is 6-3 232. Does he not know what a weight room is? The guy looks slightly bigger than a safety or even Cortez Allen.

    He will get swallowed up by NFL o-lineman. No thanks... and we can't wait 3 years for him to develop. Te'o has the prototypical size of a linebacker that could start today.

    Yeah, I was banging the Te'o drum HARD before all this sh- came out. The reason I was, was the play-making ability he displayed at ND (e.g. 7 INT's as an ILB). This defense needs YOUNG talent all over, but above and beyond that, it needs PLAYMAKERS. I guy like Te'o would be a HUGE help right now. But I'm sorry... between now and April, something has to come up to change my mind about his CHARACTER. Otherwise, I don't touch him with a 10' pole.

    Waiting three years to develop is kinda standard on our defense which is why there are so many 30 somethings. LeBeau wouldn't have it any other way.
    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!

    Woodley and Timmons contributed as rookies, but don't let facts cloud your rants.

    I'm also impressed with Kevin Minter. He's prototypical 3-4 ILB. Based on the videos I've been watching, he has some of the best read-and-react skills I've seen for an ILB in this draft. He shows good vision for the inside and the ability to work his way through the trash on the inside which is what Timmons had so much trouble with in years past.

    I think that we go ILB in round two, taking Minter. I think Elam will be the pick in round one. I think he's a little bit of a reach, but we need a safety to develop. Don't think we're done there though. I think we may go with another safety in round 3. Rambo or whatever his name is at that point.

    Minter won't be around when we pick in Round 2.

    as for Rambo, he and Alex Ogletree were suspended for the first 4 games of this past season for marijuana use. I realize we drafted Mike Adams even though he was also a known pot smoker but after what happened with Ta'amu and Rainey this past season I believe both Rambo and Ogletree will be off our draft board.

    I think its going to be either NT or S or WR or TE.

    This draft is loaded with O-linemen. They can get a good OG/OT in Rd 2- Rd 3.
    Steelers Draft
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    I think we go LB in the 1st either inside or outside. I think players like Ansah, Jordan, Te'o, Ogletree, Mingo, they are all in play for the Steelers and whoever Colbert and Tomlin like the best will be where they go. In rounds 2 and 3, I think the Steelers will find playmakers for #7 in the backfield and outside (Eddie Lacy and Robert Woods), those picks would make me happy. Add depth in the secondary and on the offensive line the rest of the way. This team is sorely lacking in quality depth, that's why injuries hurt so bad last season. The next man up wasn't good enough. The team also needs to find a young QB in my opinion to develop with Batch hanging onto a roster spot for one more season. Change is a coming folks, we'll see if Tomlin can develop talent now and if Colbert can continue to find it.
