    yeah, especially if we're not using their pedigree in the proper way. asking them to hold up blockers isnt what 1st round type talent should be asked to do.
    three 1st round picks for a team using an attacking 4-3 would be a lot. for us, it would be ludicrous

    dont we have a practice squader on the roster who, in camo, beat out the now starting NT for the arizona cardinals. lets see what he's got before making another mistake like worldis - jones

    Not sure you can call our best pass rusher a "mistake" like you did Worilds. If Worilds is a mistake Woodlery is a disaster and Jones is pretty much a non-entity.
    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!

    The debate is not someone wanting their position picked, the debate is between those who want to characterize Nix as the second coming of Hampton and more and those who just don't see it based upon his college production. Nothing wrong with disagreeing but count me as one of the guys who don't see Nix as a difference maker and the next Hampton.

    There is one thread about Nix... and 3 or 4 people pushing for him in a draft thread.

    Last year there were 20 threads about this guy named Eifert...lol.

    By the way there are several players that I would take at 15. Not just Gilbert.
    dude, chill out. I'm not criticizing you!

    I know you're not, and I am as chilled as one could be. Just thought your question was lame. Sorry.

    Yeah...Ovi always wants something that isnt a major necessity on this team. Last year TE, this year OLB (Trent Murphy).

    Here is Nix versus another pretty good O-line (Stanford), last year. .59 seconds into this clip you see Nix (in a 4-3), over LG. He drives him all the way back into the QB and causes the QB to throw a pick. At 2:05 of this clip he just flat out blows up a run play. Then at 3:27 of this clip...all I can say is wow!!
