    Looks like a nice list. I sure dont want to waste a first rounder on Justin King though.

      Yeah, it does look like a nice list, and they're all players we've spoken about before also. And about Justin King, I totally hear you with that. He's not a 1st rounder and shouldn't be selected in the 1st round. I really hope some team pulls the trigger on him fairly early and pushes another player down to us.

          It's cool.

          Should I list the positions they played in college, or the positions they're projected to play for us? Like for example, obviously Quentin Groves would strictly be an OLB, not a DE, as would Curtis Johnson.

          Actually, I think I'll just do that. :)

            I think Talib will bust more then King, IMO.

              Anyone see Justing King as maybe a Ricardo Colclough type?

                I don;t know if we were planning on getting zone cbs I would think we would take a look at Flowers. I see Talib is up there but I'm not a fan of him.

                Does anyone know what guys came in last year for a visit

                  These are just visits. Who knows if we are actually looking to draft them.

                    Talking about CB's, I really hope we bring both Cason and Flowers in for a visit and have a closer look at them. If CB was a position we were going to address early in the draft, I'd be very happy if we came away with either Cason or Flowers. Obviously Cason in the 1st, or Flowers in the 2nd.

                      This is true. Who knows what the Steelers are planning to do come draft day, and no body really knows how interested the Steelers really are in these players.

                        I wouldnt be suprised to see a player we didnt bring in for an interview get drafted by us.

                            If you're talking early in the draft, I think our track record says otherwise though. I'm pretty sure since Colbert's been here, we've never drafted someone in the 1st, maybe even 2nd round aswell who hasn't had a scheduled visit with us. I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere, and I'm 99% sure it was 1st round, and as I said, it may have been 2nd round aswell.

                              Anyone think of Talib as a FS?

                              Thats where I think the Steelers are.

                              Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]
