I want to see how well he does this season. This is just preliminary and Jenkins could very well make his way to the #1 Junior spot.

I assume you mean Marcus Freeman the OLB from OSU and not the TE from ND.

I think he's good with potential to be a monster, but I think moving to Sam really affected his play. He was a lot better as the Will backer. Letting him be an explosive playmaker, where Sam he was having issues with traffic. I think with a solid Season there's no way I can deny him top 5 junior status.

Default Next Year

I'd like to see the Steelers continue to build a dominating LB corps with another first rounder in 2008. Next year's LB talent is awesome.

Keith Rivers would be excellent. Could play inside in a 3-4 and outside in a 4-3.

How's this for a 4-3 alignment: Timmons and Rivers at OLB with Keisel and Woodley at DE. Quite nice!

I don't like Rivers for us because he's exactly What Timmons is.

We're going to throw Timmons to Mack.

So our LB Core with the rookies will be...

James Harrison - Timmons - Larry Foote - LaMarr Woodley

Which means Farrior Retired, Haggans didn't get extended which means our second team is..

Arnold Harrison - ???????? - Goo Wallace - Marcello Church

So I still think 2-3 LB's in next years draft is perfect.


What I'd like to see. Is basically back and forth.. OL/LB/OL/LB/

1) Barry Richardson, LT, Clemson - We need a future at LT. If Faneca does leave, Colon can possibly take over. However Marvel has a pinched nerve, is the weakest LT in the AFCN. Lets upgrade and get better.

2) Chris Ellis, DE/OLB, Virginia Tech - He'res a 6'5, 260lb 4.6' range DE/OLB. I think Either Keisel or Aaron Smith can slide to UT so having Woodley and Ellis can slide up and drop their hand and we're instantly in a 4-3.
Woodley Slides up, we have Foote at SLB, Timmons at MLB, Ellis at WLB. Ellis Slides up, we'll have Woodley at SLB, Foote at MLB, and Timmons at WLB. We're set.

3) Kirk Elder, OG, Texas A&M - We need a reliable LG, If Colon wants to slide to LG, I think he has the best potential, but if they want to keep him at RT, then Elder is the perfect replacement for Faneca.

4) Mike Klinkenborg, ILB, Iowa - he's got good size at 6'2 245lbs. He's got good speed being clocked as quick as 4.58. He's not the big play maker like Brinkley, Goff, or Hall. But he is very solid and reliable. He'll back up Foote at Buck, and slide Wallace over to Mack behind Timmons.

5) Derek Kinder, WR, Pittsburgh - I think this kid can be the future for Ward. He's tough, good blocker, and has big play capability

6) Lance Ball, RB, Maryland - I think Lance is a MJD type player, Small, built and compact. He's 5'09 and 228lbs. He's part of a two pronged attack at Maryland and will fall because of that and will be a beast backing up Willie Parker.

7) Bryan Mattison, DE/OLB, Iowa - Bryan is part of a Great rotation at Iowa. He's the Strongside DE and he's solid. He'll be a good backup and situational player as a backup to LaMarr Woodley. He'll provide the depth lost by Haggans. He'll battle Harrison for the last LB spot.

1: Chris Ellis (WOLB) - Lawrence Timmons (WILB) - Larry Foote (SILB) - LaMarr Woodley (SILB)

2: James Harrison(WOLB) - Goo Wallace (WILB) - Mike Klinkenborg (SILB) - Bryan Mattison (SOLB)

3: Marcello Church (WOLB) - Arnold Harrison (SOLB)

This is without seeing this season.

I believe the LB Help and OL help is imminent anyways, but as for Kinder/Ball, that could chance with Underclassmen or needs.

I would consider Kregg Lumpkin instead of Ball

Default Rivers

Mr Stiller:

The fact that Rivers is a Timmons look-alike is exactly why I like him.

What do they both offer? Athleticism and Flexibility. They are both well suited for either the 3-4 or 4-3. In a 4-3 cover-2 scenario, they would be a tremendous OLB combo - they are both sideline to sideline and they can both cover. In a 3-4 scenario, one would play ILB while the other plays OLB.

The difference in our thought process is that you see James Harrison as a future starter, and I do not. I believe that in the future the Steelers will be running both the 3-4 and the 4-3 defense. The picks of Timmons and Woodley support this strategy. Both of these guys were selected for their flexibility. We will see more of the same next year, just watch.

The other player that continues to grow on me as a Steeler first rounder in '08 is Justin King. Thoughts?

Mr Stiller:

The fact that Rivers is a Timmons look-alike is exactly why I like him.

I like Rivers, But I don't think we have room for another Rd 1 pick to move inside. Rivers isn't a block-shedder well enough to pay Buck, or Sam in a 4-3, he's purely a Weakside Backer, which is exactly what Timmons is.

What do they both offer? Athleticism and Flexibility. They are both well suited for either the 3-4 or 4-3. In a 4-3 cover-2 scenario, they would be a tremendous OLB combo - they are both sideline to sideline and they can both cover. In a 3-4 scenario, one would play ILB while the other plays OLB.

They would be tremendous athletic wise, but neither one sheds blocks well enough to play SAM in a 4-3. Foote could do that, but I think both Timmons and Woodley are a waste as a 4-3 MLB, they're too athletically gifted and should both be WILL backers in a 4-3. I don't think either offers enough in a 3-4 scenario to play OLB. If either did, it woud be Timmons. If you want to go that route, I'd throw out 2 names that can play 4-3 and 3-4 OLB. Brian Cushing and Erin Henderson. Both offer the abilities of 4-3 SAM, and a 3-4 WOLB. I think they'd both fit better, even in a cover 2. Both can cover and both can rush the passer as well as stuff the run game. Like I said, If we didn't draft Timmons, I'd be completely all about Keith Rivers. I don't think he offers us the flexibility that Cushing or Henderson would offer.

The difference in our thought process is that you see James Harrison as a future starter, and I do not. I believe that in the future the Steelers will be running both the 3-4 and the 4-3 defense. The picks of Timmons and Woodley support this strategy. Both of these guys were selected for their flexibility. We will see more of the same next year, just watch.

I agree. I don't see Harrison as a future starter, I think he starts this season and Possibly some of next season. But IMO, I think Chris Ellis is the perfect guy, he's as fast as Timmons and he's a guy that can play DE or OLB. OLB In both systems, DE in a 4-3. I think he's the better pick because he can slide up to the line, where as Rivers/Timmons don't have the size to necessarily slide up to DE.

The other player that continues to grow on me as a Steeler first rounder in '08 is Justin King. Thoughts?

I'll start off by saying I love Justin King and his potential. However either 4-3 or 3-4 we don't value a corner as a 1st rounder. Even with his capabilities, I'd love to add King. But it'd be a waste of his talent. Either 3-4 (Zone Blitz) or 4-3 (Tampa2) they're both zone schemes that hide the deficiencies for the Corners by brilliant Safety play and a great pass rush. Honestly I think for zone coverage William *** will end up being a monster starter for us. He's perfect for our zone coverages and like I said, I love King I don't think he's going to be a chance for us. I know it's popular to say we need a corner, I disagree. We need LB and OL. Maybe a WR/RB but other than that, Corner is one of the least of my worries. I wanna see how Coach Tomlin coaches up the secondary.
