I dont like PSUers generally....flops as nfl players...

How bout 96 at the end of the 3rd ?....wouldnt make me happy but i could live with it if the idea is hes a red zone matchup problem




I dunno about labeling them as flops because they come from a certain school. I mean no way Barkley is a flop, that kid is Ladanian Tomlinson 2.0. Flat out stud. As for Gesicki, I like him a lot and I wouldn't be schocked if the Steelers loved him as well, seems like their kind of player.


You mean, like Ki-Jana Carter? Blair Thomas? Surefire NFL successes at RB from PSU...

Anyone can flop in the NFL -- don't be so sure of yourself. Barkley ran for 44 yards against tOSU in the first game that really mattered all year.[/quote]



Granted. Id bet my rep as draftnik on Barkley being a stud, labeling him the next LT ok that's a tall order for anyone but Barkley is a flat out stud. His speed,vision and agility is off the charts.

I think Barkley will do well in the nfl. If by some miracle he drops to 32 the Steelers should run to the podium

No way we take a TE in rd 1 this year.
There simply isn't one worthy of the spot.
I wouldn't mind Gisecki in rd 2.
We have to look really hard at QB, S or ILB with our 1st pick IMO.

I wouldn’t spend much time debating what a golf analyst from a dying paper has to say about the NFL draft. TE is one of the Steelers biggest needs but I doubt that’s the pick. Anyone who claims to know where any team would go this early in the process is nuts.

I would hope that FS and ILB are high on the list. I've not seen any TE that WOWs me.

Come on...Barkley only ran for 44 yards because the Buckeyes’ defense flat-out dominated the Lions’ OL.

Penn State’s OL has actually been a weakness all year...OSU was the first defense that could exploit that weakness.

When the starting LT went out, it got worse.

I just don't see ILB being much of a need. Presumably it would be to replace Williams, but he's playing reasonably well and a decent chunk of our 3rd down D has him coming off the field for another safety or CB.

Who knows where they will draft, or who will be available but I would think that it could be
QB, TE, or S in the first.

I like the TE from Oklahoma, and the QB from OK State, they would probably have to trade up for the QB, so that’s pretty unlikely. How about this, assuming they draft 25-32.

1.TE from Oklahoma
2.S
3.OLB
4.N/A
5a.DT
5b.WR
5c.OLB
6.S
7.OT

2019 Ben retired, team had a suck season.
1.QB
2.WR
3.ILB
4.WR
5.CB
6.OG
7.DE

i think he has look like shit when not on the goal line or a run up the gut. his side-to-side movement is very limited. He can't cover half as much as Timmons could/can.

I think they take a QB early give him a year to learn under Ben
