I believe the steelers need to answer the center question early. with faneca gone they definitely need to improve OL, if that means moving colon inside and getting a T first then that would be smart. I would not be surprised to see an early pick at CB, RB or DL as all of these areas could use upgrade or depth. Another receiver would be nice but not as much as the aforementioned areas. I really think they need a complement to parker as their red zone offense did not always look comfortable which might be why ben wants a "tall" receiver.

I think their first draft pick will probably be hometown boy Jeff Otah. After that, there are so many spots to fill, almost anyone would be good.

The Browns look like they'll be an actual competition in the upcoming season but let's not get too excited bud! Good luck to you and your Brownie Bitches.

If (CB) Crmartie is there at 22, take him, especially if they could get (G) Albert in the 2nd round. (OT) Otah will probably not be there and I question his pass blocking in the short term. It would be good to get up in the top 15 or trade out and get another 2nd rounder+.

Make that 2 2nd rounders. If they take Otah ABOVE 4 it will be a terrible draft.

Kiper says Cromartie is climbing fast. He predicts Pats will take him with the pick that should have been taken away by the Commish in the first place! NUTS!!!

It would be real nice if we could have 2 more picks in the 2nd or 3 in the 3rd.

NFLN is reporting that RB, Jonathon Stewart, may be needing surgery on his big toe. His stock will probably fall now. Turf toe can be a serious injury. Ask Jack Lambert.

Ogden was also sidelined with turf toe last season. I don't think he ever recovered and will most likely retire.

I think the only way I would draft him now would be in 5 or a later round. Just too risky. Crap he might have to be a UFA. Too bad. A lot of talent & $$$$ maybe down the tubes. Rashard Mendenhall all the way now baby!

I don't know. Remember when Buffalo took McGahee as their first even though he was injured?

Did'nt know that. McGahee seems to have recovered thats for sure. Thats a tuff injury for any position. The 1st time I remember hearing about that kind of injury was with Lambert. Man you know it must have been hurtin for him to quit.

McGahee didn't have turf toe. I think it was a meniscus tear in one of his knees.
