  • 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."

    I would think they need Wooten more than Weatherspoon.

      I like Weatherspoon a lot. I wouldn't put a first rounder on him, though. My eye is on Daryl Washington and Sean Lee in the third round if they were available.

        Hmm, interesting. I though that after getting Hood the FO wouldn't pursue another 3-4 end with the first pick, but anything can happen.

        I'd read somewhere that Weatherspoon wasn't exactly a great fit in a 3-4 scheme, and I think he'd be an ILB. Am I right on this?

        Odrick I think is a better fit as a 3-4 DE for where we're picking.

        Props to clover_jeez!

          With Wootton's injury woes, he could fall to the second or maybe third for us to take. I wouldn't risk a first on him, but a second would be awesome. Maybe they're thinking on moving Ziggy to NT?

              I saw this mock on another site just wanted to know what you guys thought

              1.Earl Thomas S Texas

              2.Brandon Spikes LB Florida

              3.Sergio Kindle LB Texas

              I like Thomas as a play maker and I like the pick, Spikes would be a good value in the second. I really doubt Kindle falls all the way to the 3rd. If he has a great national championship game he could shoot up boards

                  For many, Kindle is a one trick pony and that is strictly a pass rusher. He also has character issues that might cause him to drop. I doubt he lasts that far, but noone saw Duke Robinson or other top players drop for that reason.

                      I think we are negligent if we don't bring in another young D-lineman amidst one of the strongest classes in years.

                          That would be awesome, only thing we need would be CB.

                          Thomas is the second best playmaker (defensive back) in the draft after Berry, IMO. Only concern is his size and how well he'll hold up, but it's nothing too shabby.

                            I don't think we need a corner. We drafted two and we do not know anything about them. Plus we have *** and Ike. I heard Townsend tell the Pittsburgh radio on ESPN that he plans on playing another 2-3 years. If anything, we can sign a vet corner like Bodden. I also heard that Thomas can play both corner and safety.

                              1. Dan Williams, NT, Tenn. McClain and Haden will be gone; Williams can infuse the line with some more youth. Williams gets the nod over Cody, as Tomlin's had his fill of NTs with conditioning problems. If the Steelers tag Hampton, Williams could play some 40 fronts on passing downs.

                              2. Dexter McCluster, RB/WR/KR, Ole Miss. Some are scared off McCluster's slight frame, but consider what a smallish DeSean Jackson has done with Philly. McCluster (4.32 40, est.) would give an immediate STs boost, could potentially be the COP back in FWP's place, and is emerging as a decent receiver. A triple threat.

                              3. Robert Johnson, S, Utah. The "Human Eraser" seems to have gotten lost in a flush crop of safeties, but at 6'2", 200#, and running a 4.52, he could play FS or, if needed, switch to strong. Ryan Clark is 30 and did not play well without Troy, and Ty Carter has to go.

                              4. Walter Thurmond, CB, Ore. Injury special. If the Steelers don't invest a high round pick in a CB, it's because they want to see if they can develop Burnett, Lewis, and the oft-targeted ***. But Thurmond, Jairus Byrd's old teammate, could have been a first day pick were it not for a knee injury.

                              5. Eric Olsen, C, Notre Dame. Olsen is an under-valued center who can potentially push Legursky and Stapleton for the starting job after Hartwig moves on. (Hartwig allowed 7 sacks this season.)

                              5. (comp for Nate Washington). Adam Ulatoski, OT, Texas. At worst, badly needed depth at the tackle position. He's played LT at a major program but looks to lack the speed to protect the blind. Has the size you'd like in a RT, which might (finally) allow Willie Colon to flip in to RG, where he would be a monstrous run-blocker.

                              6. Danny Batten, DE, S. Dakota St. Productive at small program, should have intriguing triangle numbers to make him worth a developmental pick. Will need a year or two of strength & conditioning, not to mention coaching, but could have nice upside.

                              6. (comp. for Bryant McFadden). Arthur Moats, OLB, James Madison. A DE at James Madison, Moats will more resemble the "undersized" James Harrison than he will LaMarr Woodley. At 6'0" 250#, he runs a 4.58, notched 90 tackles, 23.5 TFL and 11 sacks this year to go with 65, 15.5 and 11.5 last year. Steelers have absolutely zero OLB depth, and Moats is an intriguing small school prospect.

                              7. Andre Sexton, SS/ILB, Okla. St. Sexton played both SS and OLB collegiately, and has 4.54 speed and over 300 career tackles. At 6'0" 224#, he'd provide a helluva thump at SS, and at ILB he's only about 10# under Farrior's playing weight. Sadly, Farrior is a liability in coverage, and whiffed badly on several critical 3rd down stops this season. Sexton would be better suited to LB in our scheme, where his speed would be a phenomenal assett, but he could potentially get a look at SS.

                              Notes: somewhat less confident about our comp picks than HWJ. Washington got the biggest deal and significant playing time, but compared to other FA deals it wasn't that big. Bryant got some playing time but was signed on the cheap. Leftwich was signed cheap and benched early.
