    Steelers 2010 Draft Discussion

    I think this board needs a new thread for 2010!

    Anyway, some quick info from a reporter at steelcityinsider.com:


    "Just heard two names the Steelers like: Sean Weatherspoon and Corey Wootton. So, Spikes may not be the MLB of their eye."

    That draft didn't end up too bad.

    I'd like Iupati, and have no issues taking him at 18 with those guys off the board. While it is hard to justify a guard at 18, it's just as hard do to so for a center, so if someone says we shouldn't go guard at 18 because they shouldn't go that high but still want a center there, they've got a very questionable argument.

    The highest centers have gone recently are Jeff Faine and Alex Mack at 21 each, with guards being somewhere around those picks too.

    Iupati's still a great pick at 18 for us, no matter if guards shouldn't go that high. We need help all across the line, and while center is also a big need for us, tackle not so much. As nice as it'd be to get a franchise tackle, the top 4 guys will be gone and we're not taking Bruce Campbell. Plus, the coaching staff really like Starks and Colon as the starters, much to our frustration. They played well at time last year, but we could do better.

    And for the record, I don't know why Pouncey's stock soared from a mid second rounder to a mid first rounder. The guy didn't do that much IMO to warrant such an increase, but that's the way these things happen, I suppose. People all of a sudden started lauding him and he rose. A mid-first center should be the next Dermontti Dawson.

    Plus, we always go BPA in the first two rounds. Usually if it meets an area of need, we go there, like Hood last year. So I think Iupati could be near the top of the list with the way your draft went.

    And for the second pick, trade up for Tate or Benn. If not, I'd go Best, just to have another RB. We have Mendenhall, Mewelde Moore, and three guys with a whopping 3 games of experience from all three combined.

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks a lot, and IMO A combo of Best and Mendenhall would be sick.

    i dont know how ben isnt terrified to take snaps from hartwig. imo pouncey is a much more refined player than iupati but both have elite potential.

    on a side note....draft is getting ******* close lol
    Yeah, that's true, Pouncey is ready to play at a higher level than Iupati right now.

    How much water does Iupati's Senior Bowl performance hold as far as how you view him as a prospect? I had him in a mock to you at 18 w/ McClain, Spiller, Haden, ET, and Dez all off the board. Got ripped apart for it by Steeler fans basically saying that Guards shouldn't be taken that high, and he's not the elite prospect we thought he was after Geno Atkins got the better of him at the Senior Bowl, that C/OT are bigger needs for you, etc.

    Am I just taking crazy pills or is that generally how Steeler fans feel about Iupati?

    and just a sidenote: with you're second pick would you rather have Jahvid Best or Mardy Gilyard?

    I'd rather have Pouncey. He would start from day one and improve this offense. Iupati could as well, but if they're both there Id take Pouncey.

    In the 2nd, if they're looking at receiver, I'd like to trade up and land Golden Tate or Benn. Those are my two favorite receivers in this draft.

    i would trade the 4th, both 5ths and the 6th and 7th for a 2nd and 3rd or something.

    then just have 4-5 picks in the first 3 rounds and the comp picks. no way we need all 11 picks

    Three seconds would be awesome.

    Also, why three second rounders? Wouldn't it be two second rounders and two thirds?

    On traditional points, that's 960 we're giving up and 964 we're receiving.

    Would then have:

    2.37
    2.52
    2.55
    3.82
    4.105
    4.116
    5.164 C
    5.166 C
    6.188
    7.225
    7.242 C

    I personally like the idea of 6 picks R2-4.

    Just thinkin'.
    I'd rather have 18.
