    I agree that they have more pressing needs... BUT..lol

    and Mike Adams still has a heck of a long ways to go before I start getting excited about him. Beachum is a better player than he and Gilbert.

    Adams can do some damage run blocking. But, yes, Beachum is better all around than those two.

    I agree. I hope Munchak can coach the kid up this year and teach him how to pass protect.

    Can't believe I'm falling for it again but I'm actually excited to see what Munchak can do with Adams.

    If Mathews falls to #15, The phone will will be ringing like crazy with trade offers.

    In that event, we take the best trade offer and acquire more picks.

    Another 3rd and late round pick would do wonders.
    I hope something like this happens for the Steelers because I also liked the direction the OL was pointing in the last two months of the season. And I feel Munchak can continue that movement.

    Hmm... another possible scenario that I could live with. Only problem is, I am hoping this is the last time in a long time that we have a chance of snagging a top 3 franchise LT with our rd 1 pick..

    Not even close a ton of value at WR left but no LT even close can still get good WR in 2-6

    Some positions are just harder to find top end talent and LT is one of them. Plus, primadonna WRs don't usually last more than a couple years in our system

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    Nah...who needs a franchise LT. You can probably grab one after the draft as an UDFA. Besides that, we spent first and second round picks before on the OL so we therefore don't need a franchise LT...

    You run up to the podium to select him, and then you go over to each of the team tables who passed on him to thank them.

    Keep in mind that if he's there & we don't take him - he falls to the Ravens rights behind us & you face him for the next 4-8 years.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...
