    Is this Really the Guy you want to Draft?

    J. Clowney opts out of playing moments before the game Saturday. Tells coach "I'm hurt",.... but trainers knew nothing of it.

    The last thing we need to do is waste another first round draft pick on a DL bust.

    Certainly alarming. Hopefully, the Steelers will improve to the point where somebody else has to make that decision.

    There is no chance the Steelers draft Clowney. Unless our new LT proves to be at least sufficient, a franchise LT is where the Steelers will go on draft day. I doubt in any year it has been more obvious than this one.

    We aren't drafting a LT in the first round.

    Unless something changes between now and then, I would say a LT, NT, CB/S or some freak WR (if there is any)

    Don't want a 1st round DLineman anyway... Good luck to whoever takes him

    are Offensive Coordinators available in the Draft?

    Swear, I'd trade my pinky toe for a 5-year Bobby Petrino contract at OC, if it started TODAY (and he couldn't leave for 5 years - lol)

    Clowney doesn't fit our 3-4 scheme even if it's performance is "clownish." Sorry couldn't resist.
    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!

    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE

    Clowney is a freakish athlete but I definitely think he's overrated.
