I wouldn't mind picking Levi up. The Steelers have taken more O-line in the first round than any other position so its a real possibility.
I'd love to land David Harris in the 2nd.
Levi would definately help out our o-line and Harris is a very underrated prospect that I think could possibly fall into the third, but would be a great addition if we were able to grab him.
After the OSU Game, Scouts aren't going to overlook him.
IF Jake Long leaves, thats our RT. He pretty much shut down Vernon Gholston, which isn't the easiest of things.
Jake Long, David Harris, Jarvis Moss/James Hardy/Tanard Jackson, Brian Smith, George Batiste/Brian Anderson, Eric Foster, Ikaika Alama-Francis...
AJ Hawk ugly and very athletic. 6'7 320 lbs and he's more than Agile/Athletic enough to Take over for the cement shoed Max Starks as a Rookie.
Possibly the Next in line of Great Steeler MLBs taken in round 2?
Levon Kirkland, Kendrell Bell..... David Harris is the best MLB in the NCAA and he's certainly the best ball hawk/block breaker.
Tanard Jackson is a prototypical CB. He's fast, he's a mack truck hitter, and he'll be reunited with former Cuse FS Anthony Smith. Smith is going to be good. I know it, and Tanard, well, he's another 3rd round, underrated Cuse player. If he were at a school other than Cuse, he could be ranked in the top 5. If you can, look at his special teams hit against Uconn. He hits just as hard as Anthony Smith. Tanard Reminds me of Ike last year, or Rashean Mathis. Maybe not that high caliber, but he has that potential.
Brian Smith + 20 lbs. + A year behind Joey Porter = A Monster. He's a 4-3 DE who at times has dropped into coverage. He would be a pass rushing nightmare at 6'4 250 lbs. (he's 230 at the beginning of the season) A Broken hip drops him here to us and we're more than glad to take him.
Big, Athletic and some of the best footwork i've seen. He may take a year or two on the PS but i can see him being a starter when Faneca leaves. And you probably won't see any dropoff.
#56, former MLB, plays DT. he's 6'3 265 lbs. He's more than Adequately fast enough for MLB. He can break blocks just as good as any DT in the country and was a huge part in their 9 wins this season. He gets into the backfield on nearly every play. If he can shed blocks that well at the line, Imagine him at LB. He could even move outside. David Harris would take over Kreidwaldts Spot. And we could have him battle Wallace for #2 behind Farrior. We saw how well Teddy Bruschi did it.
Former Basketball player, but at 6'6 290 lbs, not to mention 2 years of experience in the Hawaiian 3-4. Possibly another token Samoan Steal late in the draft. Not to mention after adding 40 pounds he's every bit as athletic as he was playing basketball.
I'm still undecided about our 4b and 5/6b selections.
Does any body know any thing about Fred Bennet CB out of south Carolina, He's 6'1 and runs a 4.45 forty could we end up picking him in the first? South Carolina has had a solid track record for DBs.
Bennett is good but he has some question marks. He usually goes for the big hit rather than the sure tackle, he's a great cover corner but not necessarily a good run supporter. He would be a good addition, though.
Weddle would be a nice day one pick. He fills alot of needs and can play either safety or cb in the shaky secondary. His pr value is also very nice considering no one on the team now has shown they can fill the void Randle El left in the return game.
