1.) Justin Hunter WR- Tennessee. I feel like he will solidify himself as the #2 WR in the draft. Gives Ben the big target he's been asking for.

2.) Tank Carradine OLB- Florida State. Injury makes him slip. I feel like he is a top 15 talent. Great passrusher and a massive steal in rd. 2.

3.) D.J. Swearinger FS- South Carolina- Gives us a relaible backup for Troy and Clark.

4.) Nico Johnson ILB- Bama. Thumper to groom next to Timmons.

5.) Kwame Geathers DT/DE- Georgia- Big guy who I know little about. I guess I'm looking at his size and hoping he's good.

6.) Michael Williams TE- Bama. Powerful blocker who would help our run game. Can also surprise people in the red zone.

7.) Joseph Fauria TE- UCLA- Doubling up on TE? Fauria shows great upside as a pass catcher and with Heath uncertain we need weapons.

I like it for the most part.

Dont like Carradine in the 2nd.

Swearinger wont last that long.

I know some dont like Nico Johnson, but I think he would be a nice 4th round pick and has upside to be a nice compliment to Timmons.

Still, overall, Id be very happy with this draft.

What 43 said. Seriously, I like it but I also agree D.J. won't be there. I LOVE the first round pick!!

I think there needs to be a QB in there somewhere, and I would go RB in the 2nd.

Overall not bad though.

But who? I mean unless you're going to draft someone like Geno Smith in the first round in hopes to implement the pistol offense or someone else capable of doing so, who do you draft? I wouldn't draft a QB unless I truly felt they had future starter potential, because if I didn't feel that way, I'm just as well off signing an FA Back up.

Dont understant the love affair around here for D.J. Swearinger, although if you want an solid defensive player Bama,UGA, & S. Carolina are loaded.

Like WR Justin Hunter if we don't keep Wallace. I have Hunter just ahead of Patterson.

Think DE Carradine is more of a 4-3 DE than a 3-4 OLB, not sure how effectively he can drop into coverage with a speed of 4.85.

S Swearinger in the 3rd? Okay.

ILB Johnson in the 4th? Think he's a 5th rounder.

DT Geathers doesn't really fit our player type. Our DE's are as tall as can be and about 300 lbs, they have to shift into the passing lane and hold their ground and the edge. Our NT type is short (preferably 6 foot) and about 325 lbs when they're young. Geathers is much too tall to be as effective at NT as we need and he's much too heavy to play DE for us. Now, can we force a square pegg into a round hole? Sure, but it's getting too far from ideal.

Don't think we need another blocking TE, we've got too many as it is.

This is not the year to draft Ben's future replacement. However, it needs to be the year we find a competent back-up who can get us through a couple games without falling apart or getting hurt.

It won't happen, but if Matt Barkley slipped to the 3rd round, I'd take him.

Not sure who you get as a FA, but Leftwich and Batch are just not going to cut it again. I am not even sure Batch comes back one more year. I'd like the Steelers to bring in Owen Daniels, but I'd bet he re-signs with NO.

As for the draft, I like these guys:

4th Round
Landry Jones, OK, 6-4, 221
Zac Dysert, Miami (OH), 6-3, 224

7th Round
Jeff Tuel, WA St., 6-3, 221

Jeff Tuel? Are you related to him or something? He wasn't very good at WSU...I don't see him getting drafted. Maybe I shouldn't speak of this, since I haven't seen as much WSU football as in past years, but I wasn't impressed in the slightest. I know its a 7th, but still.

He's my man crush at WR and he seems to be skyrocketing in the Forum. I had him as a number two option last week and early this week, but I am now convinced with a solid Combine/Pro Day he will be drafted anywhere between 15-25. Love the pick

2.) Tank Carradine OLB- Florida State. Injury makes him slip. I feel like he is a top 15 talent. Great passrusher and a massive steal in rd. 2.

Switch the #2 and #3 in my opinion.

3.) D.J. Swearinger FS- South Carolina- Gives us a relaible backup for Troy and Clark.

I think he is a number 2. I like the pick though.

4.) Nico Johnson ILB- Bama. Thumper to groom next to Timmons.

I like this pick. He reminds me of former Steeler MLB David Little.

5.) Kwame Geathers DT/DE- Georgia- Big guy who I know little about. I guess I'm looking at his size and hoping he's good.

I had a fun discussion on another thread about him. I like the "Gelatenous Mass." I don't think he lasts this long though. I think someone takes him round 3.

6.) Michael Williams TE- Bama. Powerful blocker who would help our run game. Can also surprise people in the red zone.

I think this would be a great value here. I love the pick and what he can do to help in the run game and be a red zone threat with his size.

7.) Joseph Fauria TE- UCLA- Doubling up on TE? Fauria shows great upside as a pass catcher and with Heath uncertain we need weapons.

I wouldn't go back to back TE. Maybe they can find a back-up C or G here. I am not a huge Legs fan because of his size and strength. With the new zone blocking scheme, he may be more effective. I personally prefer my OL's to be more like hogs than decathletes.

I know how we run the defense, I just saw Geathers on a site and it had him as a 5th round pick. Maybe he can drop a little weight and provide us with a decent rotational guy for NT and DE plus giving us a little passrush in the middle. I didn't really expect him to be a starter.

In regards to your TE comment, sure we may have a lot of blocking TE's on our roster, but are any of them worth a damn?

There are not a lot of QB options this year, but I have seen mocks with the Steelers taking Klein from KS St. in the 3rd or 4th. Tuel has a better arm. 7th is worth a shot if for no other reason than you have an extra arm in camp.

I totally disagree with this. You may as well bring Jerrod Johnson back if you just want another arm in camp.
