  • 2008 Off Season/Draft Thread

    Lets try to keep all the offseason and draft stuff in one thread. Post all mocks, free agency players, or anything about the draft or free agency in this thread. Post players you want, and this is mostly a discussion thread.


    I am looking at players that could be good in free agency. I read that Damien Woody would test the free agent market. He is a guy I would like to look at, only if he takes a small two year, bout maybe 4 million contract. He could be a stop gap for Faneca. He is the same age as him too.

    Also another player I would look at is Kalimba Edwards from Detriot. He I think could bulk up to about 270ish and play defensive end for us. He can rush the passer and be in the mold of Dewayne White basically.

    Enjoy this thread, and remember to keep all the offseason stuff in this thread.

    A couple of backs I would like to look at as FA are Musa Smith, and Chauncy Washington from USC. Smith is proven, so he could spell Parker well, but Washington is probably the best back not named Joe McKnight on that team. Worth a shot I say.

      I want Starks at LT and Stacy Andrews at RT. Why?

      Because we have a solid core of top tier young talent, the last thing we need is to have to rebuild with Ben entering his prime.

      Get those two, then go defense with the first 3 picks. Then go for depth.

      Maualuga is looking like a great first round pick.

      Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

        i dont think RB is a need or a concern, i think najeh is a very capable backup and gary russell can be a decent 1 - 2 punch with willie..

        thanks to steel man for the fresh sig

          One player to watch out for next camp is Matt Lentz. He is currently on the PS, but I think he could make the team next year. He was a three year starter at Michigan and can play guard or tackle.

            I like Coach Bob Sutton from the Jets. I liked what he did with Ellis against us. I think we should bring him in as a coach, and when Lebeau steps down or retires, Sutton can come in and take his place.

              Ian Scott got released by the Eagles. He has good size and is a run stuffer. I say give him a shot as a back up, maybe even take Keisels spot.

                Erin Henderson and Jamaal Charles declared.

                I wouldn't Mind Erin Henderson or Rey Maualuga as our first round pick. I love Maualugas intensity and I think with LeBeau, we might be able to cut him loose like Kendrell Bell or Troy.

                  Excactly right on Maualuga...but would he play inside or outside

                  I'd like Rey in the First.

                  Devin Thomas in the second

                  and an unnamed lineman in the third

                    Why is he unnamed?

                        Well I am thinking on doing a mock, but I am waiting till all the underclassmen declare. So by the 19th, I will make a mock.

                          Hasn't Rey Maualuga insisted on a few separate occassions that he is returning to USC for his senior year? Has he softened on this position?

                          He is by far my favorite prospect for the Steelers. I do not care if we have bigger needs or not. He is an animal.

                          That said, there is no way in hell that he is not a top 10 pick if he comes out. And who would likely wind up with him? The Patriots - that's who.

                          Here's hoping that Rey stays in school.

                            he wont necessarily be a lock for the top 10...

                            but top 25? yeah.

                              I am not sold on Bloom. If we dont get Royal, I want us to get Darius Reynaud from West Virgina. Basically the same player as Royal and Reid, but is a better reciever. He would be beastly.
