    I voted for Kevin Minter - ILB - LSU

    He's a great fit for a 3-4 team and could potentially start or see significant playing time from day 1.

    My other preferences would be Keenan Allen (WR - Cal), Robert Woods (WR - USC) or DJ Swearinger (Safety - South Carolina).

    Woods is off the board (went to Carolina a few picks ago). I thought about including Swearinger, but I was limited to only 10 possibilities...so I listed 2 RB's, 2 ILB's, and 2 CB's, but only 1 safety, 1 WR, 1 OT, and 1 NT.

    I picked Keenan Allen because he plays WR like Hines used to. A smart, smooth route runner who is also a tough S.O.B....who cares about the 40 times for either player.

    Have I missed the news on our new Def Coord. If that doesn't change then Minter does not see significant playing time in Season 1 let alone day 1.
    1. Charles Harris-OLB, Missouri
    2. Rasul Douglas-CB, West Virginia
    3. Chris Godwin-WR, Penn State
    4. John Johnson-S, Boston College
    5. James Conner-RB, Pitt
    6. Nazair Jones-DT, North Carolina
    7. Garrett Sickels, DE/OLB, Penn State

    Get over it. First we aren't allowed to pick defensive players in round 1 because LeBeau refuses to play them. Now we aren't allowed to pick defensive players in round 2 either? I think that Minter would be a awesome round 2 pick if that came to fruition.

    LBs do... Woodley and Timmons both played significant time as rooks... so much so that Foote left and went to Detroit....

    Iirc. Timmons started in his 3rd year. Didnt do much as a rook, mostly just special teams. Played some more in his 2nd year. Started in his 3rd. For being the 15th pick in the draft, that's not really impressive IMO

    woodley was the one who played his rookie year (late). Had 2 sacks in playoff game vs jags. Then started in his 2nd year


    ps. For all the crap foote gets on here. He was a starter at ILB in the 2 years we won our last titles.

    I picked Minter, but I'd go 50/50 on him or Allen.

    I kinda like Bernard. He's a big little dude that jittery quick.

    I also like Banks, but think it would take time for him to contribute in our D. He's gotta add some size, he's lanky. But if he did, he's got some nice frame and athleticism. I think Carnell might be able to do wonders with this kid and he'd have a year to learn behind Ike. And like Amerson who I also really like, I think you might be able to use Banks at S as well because he can play the ball.

    Flippy, you been reading my notes again... quit peeking over my shoulder!

    Scary thing is i'm convinced the team would take Hankins if this was what was available.. that's the trouble with mocks... there's a "what would you take" vs "what do you think THEY will take" debate to be had...

    The Steelers probably have a 1st round grade on Hankins and might even surprise us all and consider him at 17.
