    Are you guys assuming Williams is definitely not a starting ILB moving forward? Timmons is a stud (even though there are a lot of Timmon haters around). Unless there is a player that is in the realm of a Pat Willis or Bowans, I don't see using a first rounder on an ILB; he would have to be a huge difference maker like one of those guys and I don't know that there is one in this draft of that magnitude.

    I think with the way the offence looked strong it may be time to give Ben another weapon if the guy that they value is there at 15. Then go Defense heavy if possible. I want to see how Willams, Spence, Gavin turn out. But if Mosley is BPA then I would be fine with that. Just don't see that as the case. But ILB is just as much a problem in my eyes as NT is to get the run defense back on track.

    I'm all on board with the Mosley pick. Smart player and is good in pass coverage. He helps this defense immediately. I liked how V. Williams stepped up this year as a 6th rounder, but he will make a solid back-up. Its time to bring the Steelers LBing corp back to prominence.

    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia

    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech or Jordan Tripp LB Montana
    6. Ricardo Allen CB Purdue

    IDK, it seems like the Steelers go Offense one year and Defense the next. I know it's probably just coincidental, but it does look like this is an O year.

    I see the pattern too, but what better time to break the pattern and get your defensive signal caller for the next 8-10 yrs?

    1. There is no way Jernigan lasts to 28. We get a Ziggy Hood at 32 a few years back, and the 49ers land Jernigan there? You put Jernigan with that defense, and it is lights out.
    2. Kuondjio ain't beating out Greg Robinson... not after their respective BCS performances.
    3. Speaking of Tackles, Taylor Lewan in the Top 10 still?
    4. And Marquis Lee over Sammy Watkins?


    Both opinions seem so 2013, as if Charles Davis (NFL expert analyst) didn't even do any research this season.
