    I have not seen this guy play once, but just by going off past history... I will guess that the best TE in this year's draft, isn't even talked about as a first round choice (Ebron, Amaro). Miller is still Top 20 in the league. That isn't great, but he is solid and dependable as day. Give him another year (off knee reconstruction), and he'll be even more solid, if not outstanding anymore.

    Jace Amaro

    Round 2:
    Austin Serafin-Jenkins

    Late Round 2 or Round 3:
    Troy Niklas
    CJ Fiedorowicz
    I wouldn't want to go tight end in the first round...however, I'd take Serafin-Jenkins in the second or Fiedorowicz in the third.
    Round 1, Pick 15 (15)- Ryan Shazier, ILB; Ohio State
    Round 2, Pick 14 (46)- Stephon Tuitt, DE; Notre Dame
    Round 3b, Pick 33 (97)- Dri Archer, RB; Kent State
    Round 4, Pick 18 (118 )- Martavis Bryant, WR; Clemson
    Round 5, Pick 17 (157)- Shaquille Richardson, CB; Arizona
    Round 5b, Pick 33 (173)- Wesley Johnson, OT; Vanderbilt
    Round 6, Pick 16 (192)- Jordan Zumwalt, OLB; UCLA
    Round 6b, Pick 39 (215)- Daniel McCullers, DT; Tennessee
    Round 7, Pick 15 (230)- Rob Branchflower, TE; Massachusetts

    Dont worry we wont. There's only one man in the world who wants the Steelers to draft a TE in round 1. A man not in touch with what is most important to the Steelers.

    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke

    Yes he is. Of course I meant Vernon Davis
    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!

    Sure, Vernon Wells was great in his early years with the Blue Jays, but after he signed his big contract in '06 he fell off and started getting hurt. I'd prefer a guy with Vernon Davis potential...although I spoke with Mike Singletary and he still prefers Wells.

    I think Miller's extension will be one of the first offseason moves right before the new league year starts.

    I would negotiate reasonable contract extensions to both Troy and Heath....I would not ask for a pay cut...

    I would ask for a pay cut from both Ike Taylor and LaMarr Woodley...
