  • DeCastro won't fall to where we will pick and we could get Demps way later than the second.

      As for an athletic TE, Ladarius Green could be it.
      Agree on both counts.....nice~!


      If Green would be there in the fourth round...a steal

        4. TE Ladarius Green, Louisiana-Lafayette
        5. WR Brian Quick, Appalachian State
        6. DE Matt Conrath, Virginia
        7. K Carson Wiggs, Purdue

        Very offensive oriented, but we have no guards and desperately need them, and Demps and Green would add entire new dimensions to our offense if they work out.

        Quick is a big WR because Ben (and me too) wants one, Conrath is depth, and we need a kicker. I like Wiggs because he's got a big leg. He kicked a 67 yarder back in spring this year, it's on YouTube.

        Don't think Demps is worth a second round pick

        • Keep in mind that we're likely to get a 6th or 7th round compensatory pick for Matt Spaeth. I say we go Alabama heavy early this year.

          1. OG Barrett Jones*, Alabama - Kemo's replacement
          2. NT Josh Chapman, Alabama - Hampton's replacement
          3. SS Harrison Smith, Notre Dame - Clark's replacement
          4. LB Manny Acho, Texas - Farrior's replacement
          5. WR Marvin Jones, California - Competition for Ward's position
          6. OT James Brown, Troy - Competion for swing tackle
          7. OG Joe Looney, Wake Forest - Competition for right guard
          7. DE Taylor Thompson, SMU - Competition for backup DE

          Priority free agents:
          QB Austin Davis, Southern Miss
          TE Adam Nissley, UCF
          OLB Jamie Blatnik, Oklahoma St
          FS Josh Bush, Wake Forest
          RB Forswhitt Whittaker, Texas
          PK Randy Bullock, Texas A&M
          NT Hebron Fangupo, BYU
          WR Danny Coale, Virginia Tech
          CB Josh Norman, Coastal Carolina

          • When all the underclassmen declare, I'll make a mock with some guys I would look at as UDFAs. Should be a good one since I'm brainstorming, though I do like the combo of Barrett Jones and Josh Chapman.

              I havnt started scouting players yet, i do that in the offseason, but if we got 4 starters in this draft it would be a massive win! When was the last time that happened?

                Answer: 2002

                Kendall Simmons, Antwaan Randle-El, Chris Hope, Larry Foote and Brett Keisel have all seen significant time as starters.

                      i like.. though i feel like guard should be a top 3 round priority...

                      who are top guard candidates for us?

                      thanks to steel man for the fresh sig

                        I like Brandon Washington.

                        In other news, Chris Carter was put on the IR, Chad Spann was put on the active roster, and Albert Young was put on the PS.

                        • What do you guys think about RB?

                          Is Clay gonna get a chance to fill the Jerome Bettis void?

                          Can Redman be counted on?

                          Is Dwyer still hurt?

                          and I missed the last game, how did Rothlisberger look on that leg? Will he be stronger this weekend?

                          I hope we come out and punch the Broncos in the mouth!

                          • ben looked shaky but it was a wind tunnel. we have the slowest RBs in the league but it might not be a bad thing cause they need to control the clock and get everyone out of there healthy

                            • How do we feel about Lamar Miller RB From Miami in the first round?

                              Mendehall with ACL Tear and in a contract year next year.

                              Personally i don't like taking rbs in the first round, even though i was an advocate of taking mendenhall the year that they did.

                              • just saw a stat where mendenhall is second to last in the league in yards after contact at like 1.3

                                redman has about a full yard more than he does, though limited carries

                                we need a better rb. i would just hate to get one in the first
