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.

Hines 01-05-2010 11:39 PM

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.

Hines 01-06-2010 01:44 AM

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

mikehop05 01-07-2010 11:25 AM

i would go nuts for that draft

Hines 01-07-2010 01:54 PM

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.

Hines 01-08-2010 12:17 PM

I added a 4,5, and 7 round pick assuming we get them for McFadden, Washington, and Leftwich


1) Earl Thomas S Texas*
2) Corey Wootton DE Northwestern
3) Matt Tennant C Boston College
4a) Sean Lee LB Penn State
4b) Al Woods DT LSU
5a) Barry Church S Toledo
5b) Darius Marshall RB Marshall*
6) Sam Young OT Notre Dame
7a) Adrian Tracy OLB William and Mary
7b) Sergio Render G Virginia Tech

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.

Finnegans Wake 01-08-2010 12:55 PM

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.

I'm starting to think we won't have a real shot at Earl Thomas or Mays. But in the second round I do like Morgan Burnett, 6-1 210 lbs. I'm trying to find out more about him, but so far what I found wasn't to bad. He is sure handed, doesn't quite make the plays on the ball, but if the ball hits him in the hands its his. I'm still trying to find out more about him.

I think we end up drafting a tackle this year. Maybe Trent Williams? He can either wait on the bench until next year something the steelers are found of doing. Or since he can play both tackle positions he can play RT and end up bumping Willie inside like many of you want. Either until he is ready for LT or we land an elite LT.

brat316 01-11-2010 07:49 PM

Also for those of you concerned with Thomas size look no further than Ryan Clark.

Hines 01-11-2010 08:00 PM

I think Trent Williams is better suited as a RT which wouldn't be horrible, but I'd like Starks to move back there and for us to draft a true LT.

skarocksoi 01-11-2010 08:58 PM

Lots of good safeties to be possibly had in the first 2 rounds. I would love Thomas in the 1st and I'm really hoping that's a possibility when draft time rolls around.

no bare feet 01-12-2010 08:31 AM

How does this safety class and the early declarees effect your positioning on when to draft another safety. Go for Earl Thomas in the 1st and pick up some offensive line in the second or go best player available then draft safety in the second or later?

I still would not mind going S/CB in the first two rounds if the value is there. For some reason, I'd like to see Bulaga in Pittsburgh. His combine will elevate him. Bruce Campbell does not fit the Stillers way, and he is the least polished of the LT prospects.

DeathbyStat 01-12-2010 10:09 AM

What do you guys think of Donovan Warren from Michigan

Love him! He could turn out to be a major beast! If we are gonna draft a CB, Warren in round 2 would be awesome :p

Not worth taking in the first?

If Thomas isn't there at 18, I would go with OT or DL in round 1. Also, Campbell has the most potential out of any OT in this draft. He has the most potential to be the best. He is very raw. He's just like Jared Gaither who is a hell of a tackle for the Ravens.

I have him as a second rounder, but he's a really good man to man corner. He's improving in run support and has pretty good ball skills.

Jakey 01-12-2010 03:55 PM
