    Lots of other bigger needs at this point though...given the recent departures via free agency, etc. I haven't seen the steelers defense this thin (depth wise) at linebacker and safety for many years.

If you think of the top interior power guys today (Ngata, Suh, Wilfork, etc.) I don't see the NT having the presence that it once did. In previous eras, a dominant NT seemed to be a hallmark of strong D (shutting down the run). These days, it seems that having that guy in there doesn't have the same value it once did (what with the Spread maybe?)

    As I said, if he's Ngata, I'm fine taking him there. Otherwise, I would hope that there is better value elsewhere.
    So, in other words, if Star falls, yeah, but otherwise, no. Since all of Star's post-Combine heart tests came back without issue (it was likely a mixture of illness and dehydration in Indy), it's highly doubtful he falls out of the top 10 (and perhaps not out of the top 5).

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.
