    Whew, some guys have Jones labeled a bust and others have him being our starting ROLB in September. There is a fella on the team named Worilds that evidently made James Harrison expendable. I doubt Jones is the starting ROLB and Worilds specialty (at this point in time) is pass rushing. Unless Worilds fails completely I don't think Jones is seeing the field much, injuries are another story.

    Te'o, Minter, Brown or Jonathan Banks in round two and really throw the "you have to score 11ty billion points to win" crowd into a tizzy.

    I dont think it was Jason Worilds that made James Harrison Expendable. I think it was James Harrison who made James Harrison expendable. His age, injuries, and not willing to take the reasonable cut was more to do with it than anything Worilds has done.

    And I disagree with you. Jones has a chance to start from day one. He is the first true 3-4 OLB the Steelers have drafted for their 3-4.

    He has a chance, yes, he'll have to prove he's better than Worilds though, the Steelers don't typically hand a starting job to a rookie and in particular the ROLB job. I still think Worilds allowed the Steelers to send James packing, along with his reluctance to take a pay cut.

    So far your mock is spot on.

    Again this is not your typical situation. He is a true 3-4 OLB. Those in the past were being converted. And the Steelers already are saying they believe he to be special...

    "He definitely is one of the guys I talked about the other day as being a special player in this draft," general manager Kevin Colbert said. "He's a solid kid, a great player. He was dominant at a major college. He plays the run, chases the ball and most important he gets after the passer.
    "It's really just a great honor to have this kid join our team."

    "It was a fun and easy evaluation," coach Mike Tomlin said. "You look at the outside linebackers in the 3-4 defenses, usually there's a projection involved. This was an easy projection ... very little guesswork.
    "He excelled in what they asked him to do and he'll be asked to do similar things here."

    I didn't like him as much as other guys, but he hasn't done anything wrong to me, so I hope he beasts out next year, however much time he gets playing. Woodley looking over his shoulder?

    Hey, I'm on your side, I just don't think the Steelers will hand him the job on day one and make it his to lose. When you get the best OLB in the draft and he's a 3-4 OLB and you run a 3-4 base defense and you get him at 1.17 you have to be very happy. With all the talent being rated as 2nd, 3rd or 4th round talent to get one of the guys actually projected to be round 1 talent is awesome. Now, lets hope splash plays are his specialty, on passing downs to start.

    My mock was spot on with us taking Jarvis in round 1 for virtually the entire draft season, but then I went and changed everything 2 minutes prior to the start of the draft. Go figure. But I'm more concerned about the Steelers real-life draft than some pretend mock I create...and I'm quite happy with our Steeler draft so far.

    Well, I had Miami moving up because of all the picks they had; I didn't realize they wanted to move into the top 5, that had to be expensive. So, I had the right idea, just not the magnitude of what Miami wanted.

    how can we complain about drafting a guy who had 28 sacks and 40 tackles for a loss the past 2 years in the toughest conference in college football?

    I guess on-field production isn't as important as how you do at the Underwear Olympics...

    There is a fella on the team named Worilds that evidently made James Harrison expendable.
    But we TRIED to sign Harrison to more money than Cincy gave him. Actually, this pick solidifies the fact that they have little confidence that Jason W is the long term answer.

    I doubt Jones is the starting ROLB and Worilds specialty (at this point in time) is pass rushing. Unless Worilds fails completely I don't think Jones is seeing the field much, injuries are another story.
    I can see this point, just based on the tendancy to bring people in slowly.
    While I understand Dees point and agree he has a leg up on the typical Dlineman that must be converted, STILL DL tends to bring people in slowly, even at other positions where there is no position change needed.
    I agree with you that Jason is the likey starter game one, HOWEVER at some point in the season I see Jones overtaking him.

    Te'o, Minter, Brown or Jonathan Banks in round two and really throw the "you have to score 11ty billion points to win" crowd into a tizzy.
    You know dats da truth. Nice
