    1. it'll never happen. wont make it past pick #10, probably #6.

    2. if he is there you take him unless someone better is available and thats only about 2-3 players, if that many. (Clowney, Watkins, and Robinson, maybe Mack)

    He won't make it past the Bills. the Bills picked up Mike Williams from the BUCS and I believe he's going to fulfill the temptation for a BIG WR.

    I don't want to take any OL this draft. However, if someone that good were to fall you would almost have to do it- especially with the Steelers BPA philosophy.

    I don't think he'll fall to us either....but, if he does... the steelers draft him without hesitation (even if Evans is still there)..

    and they continue to use the "Dime a dozen" policy when it comes to the WR position.

    Have you failed to watch our OL the past 3 years? Really think it has the talent to be Top 10-15 in the NFL?
    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!

    Yes, I think it has that potential. We have two #1 picks, two #2 picks and the whole crew has starting NFL experience. Heck, we might even be able get Velasco back before the beginning of camp if his rehab has gone well. Add Mike Munchak to the mix and I think we are more than set at OL. They were playing well toward the end of last year despite their trials. In fact, those trials have shown us that there are some guys that can ball in that group. OL is not even a concern of mine going into the season- that's the first time in a loooooooooong time I can say that.

    If we can get a stud WR or the heir to Heath, great. Perhaps another RB, but I'm not even sure about that with the number of guys that will be on the street (possibly including LaSH). Other than that, I'm thinking Defense, Defense, Defense in this draft.

    The line was night and day better the back end of last year and that was before munchak. I don't want an olineman in the first round even if Matthews falls. We have more pressing needs.

    They may think that with all of the draft picks they have invested over the past few years in the OL and by the way they have been playing towards the end of the year, that it's entirely possible that they have no OL on their draft board as they are stacking it. Just like they would have no QB's on their board.......

    I agree with you that we have more pressing needs, but Jake Matthews would be a great addition that I don't think the Steelers could pass up. They went to see Lewan at his pro day so I would think LT is a consideration. He would be BPA by far imo. Matthews at LT and Adams at RT with Bell and Blount = some version of running game porn.
