They like Staley, ALOT, but not at 15. If they want Staley they will trade back into the 20's.

If they can trade out of the spot but at 15 I don't like it at all.....I all of the Tackles in this draft is grossly overatted especially at the top of the draft.

After hearing his stats; I was impressed and thought this guy was something special. Then I watched the senior bowl where he got eaten alive on seemingly every play. No way do I hope the steelers use a 1st day draft pick on this guy.

He was beaten on 2 plays.. both he downblocked.. 1 time it was his fault, one time it was the FB's fault.

I've watched about 5-7 of his games this season, and with some pro-training and weightlifting and time, he'll be best LT in this draft.. This is the same kid that faced Dan Bazuin in practice everyday, and never gave a sack up his 2 years at LT.

I have a hard time judging people at the Senior Bowl.. especially at non-skill positions. Why? You have a week to learn a playbook, be on a line with 4 other guys you never played with, and are expected to succeed. Don't buy too much into it. Adam Carriker beat the bloody piss out of Ryan Harris, and because of it he's no longer a fringe first rounder but a top 15 pick (Anyone know who else beat the piss out of Harris? EVERYONE HE PLAYED!).

Staley lacks functional upperbody strength but he is a tactician and can use his agility and the power he gets from loose hips and his flexibility to wall off defenders until he has the upperbody strength. But he's obviously in shape and unlike Levi Brown (Who I think is nothing better than Max Starks), he has the motor and stamina to not have to take plays off.

Levi Brown is nothing like Max Starks. He is much better at pass blocking and far more fluid in his footwork. The only thing I don't like about Levi, and I watched every game he played, is his inconsistency, he seems to take plays off. Also I think he is better suited as a right tackle. Staley MAY be a decent tackle ; if he is trained for about 2-3 years, maybe. I just do not see using a high, 1-2 rd, pick on him. He seems more like the kind of tackle you use a middle round pick on and hope he develops.

Exactly,

It's hard to make that decision. Though you say Levi is nothing like Max Starks, they are fairly similar. Every category off the field Starks wins, however Levi does have better footwork, but his pass pro has question Marks. HE still needs 2-3 years to get in shape, not take plays off, and be a better pass protector. I don't like drafting 1st round RT's.

It only takes 1 play off to end Bens game/season/career.
