    Looks a lot like what I've considered at this point... in the first, NT(only Nix), LB (a couple are capable), FS (only HaHa) or olineman...

    Of course, this before re-signings and cuts, so who knows where the biggest needs are come draft time.

    He's not talking about you. You do realize that most professional draft/scout service, was saying exactly what he said (plug/play). Secondly, what are you guys going off? Are you (and/or Dee) professional scouts (i.e. see lots of game tape)? Otherwise, calling a small school LB the best player in the entire draft is meaningless. (I remember one year, when ex-NFL safety Corey Chavous called some clown name Reggie McNeal or something, the best player in the draft. Reggie McNeal is probably delivering your holiday FedEx package as we speak.)

    I'm not saying Mack isn't a prospect; I am saying that this statement means almost nothing, unless you tell me you seen extensive tape of him besides last weekend's game (and one or two others).

    did you in the very least stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night?

    I don't have a problem with the small school LBers. see London Fletcher for one. Maybe he'll be a target in rounds two - three (compensatory). I just don't see the Steelers risking a first on a small school guy. You know how tomlin likes his "level of competition" criteria for a draft pick.

    Seem to recall the Steelers drafting one of the greatest LBs to ever play the game from a small school way back when in the 2nd round. The professionals had this to say about him: "too small to be a pro football linebacker". The guy went on to 9 straight Pro Bowls and the Hall of Fame.

    you cannot disregard Lambert's commitment to the game...this made him the exception imo. when a guy dives for a tackle during a tryout taking place on an asphalt parking lot, you may have an inkling he will be good. You can only hope you come across another with the same mentality big school or not.

    Then James Harrison was the second coming of the exception cause he went to the same school.
