    I agree, I have been hesitant on OSU players as well recently. Maybe defensive line coach Mike Vrabel will turn that around for the d-lineman, this will be his 2nd or 3rd year at that position. I would rather go corner for our first pick.

    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice

    Not so sure. The Steelers have 2 young players in place at WR. Drafting another high would potentially mean just 'giving up' on Sanders. Not convinced the Steelers are ready to do that.

    not sure I agree chadman.

    neither brown or sanders have the tools to be a true #1, IMO.

    i doubt sanders could be a quality #2

    at least on a winning team


    grab a true #1 and those 2 are then slated what they are meant to be (AB) #2.....(ES) #3

    agree.

    I see no reason why a WR won't be considered in the 1st.

    Draft Eifert and you get a WR and TE all rolled into one, the kid catches everything in sight and could be a starter on the steelers offense until Heath returns then you have two great pass catching TE''S and a additional weapon in the REDZONE.
