    I've banged the anti-Bama drum for a while, but the more I study the guy, the more I'd be pretty happy to have him in the fold. Mosley is another Timmons IMO. Maybe better.

    I think Shazier may be a more dynamic choice at LB than Mosley. Shazier fits more the "run and hit" type Tomlin likes.

    Like Ruthless, I'm not a fan of Alabama defensive players

    Shazier has the highest ceiling, little doubt about that. He is a freak of nature. His cat like quickness and straight line speed is hard to ignore. But, he isn't nearly as polished as Mosley. Mosley is a plug and play guy...as soon as he learns the system he is ready. Shazier will need to hit the weight room, and work on technique that he never developed because he could compensate with his speed. I think Mosley is very athletic and fits Tomlin's mold quite well...Shazier maybe even more so.

    At first, I hated the idea of Mosley. I still wouldn't be thrilled about the selection because of needs in other areas. However, I want the Steelers to get the best possible player they can even if its not their greatest need. The more I see and read about Mosley, the more I think he could be the best player at a position of need. That's assuming Spence isn't an option and Dennard and Gilbert are off the board.

    Mosley is a leader. He's a good communicator and that is something I believe this defense is lacking. Mosley is not like Timmons IMO. Timmons was drafted to be an OLB and was moved to ILB and that transition took awhile. 3-4 ILB is not easy by any means and Timmons struggled on the inside especially in the run game. Mosley reminds me of Farrior. A guy that was born to play inside in a 3-4 defense. He's got the instincts, he's got good vision to track the ball, he can cover, he can fight off blocks. He is a bit lean and his durability is a bit of a concern but he is about as sure of a thing as DeCastro was at OG.

    I have not been a fan of Texas defenders, but Kenny Vaccarro (who I didn't want to draft last year for this reason) seemed to have a promising year for the Saints. Every player is different. Recent Ohio State picks (front 7) have not really set the NFL on fire either. Which is disappointing because I'm from NE Ohio.

    Timmons wasnt as good initially, he was undersized and really struggled against the run but since the gap has lessened significantly. Timmons is a top 5 MLB, willis is top 2

    Sucks that woodley didnt pan out after his rookie deal, but timmons and woodley was a hell of a haul in 07

    I think Mosley would make a quick impact on the defense. My big problem with choosing him is that gives us 3 1st rounders in the linebacker spot. We are already paying Timmons a boatload of money. Our non-first rounder, Worilds, is looking for a big payday. Then we have Jones immediately followed by Mosley when their rookie contracts are up. That would be a lot of big dollar contracts for one level of the defense.

    Given the defense we run and the contract situation with Worilds and the jury out on Jones, we need another OLB before we need an ILB. Barr would be a better choice than Mosley or Trent Murphy in Round 2/3.

Solid ILB prospects like Bobby Wagner or James Laurinaitis or Paul Posluszny are typically available on day two of the draft.
    I understand your thought here, however, Mosely is far more versatile than Hightower or McClain. Those two were primarily 2 down, down hill, run stuffers. Mosely is a much better athlete and can be moved all around. Has played some off the edge in a 3-4. And of the three he is the best in coverage. He's not great at it but he can hold his own. And with Mosely inside, he can cover a lot a lot more sideline to sideline than that of Hightower and McClain.
