Nobody else seems to have a clue about this year's draft either.
That doesn't make us feel any better.
Jim Wexell and others predict Gosder Cherilus. Please, not. Gerry Dulac predicts
We've seen Branden Albert predicted to go in the top 10 … or fall to the Steelers at 23. If he's there, take him. He won't, by the way, but who will? Unfortunately, not Chris Williams (T, Vanderbilt). Jeff Otah? He hasn't done enough. Pure upside speculation. The Steelers need to select a player who will provide immediate impact.
Justin King? Nah. Fast, but not a good cover corner, nor is he physical enough. Malcolm Kelly? He probably won't be available. Quentin Groves? He had only three sacks last year. Plus, they wasted last year's first-round pick on exactly that type of player, at exactly that position – except
A corner? Maybe.
You know what? We keep saying this every year, but maybe – with only six picks – just maybe, this is the year to trade down. Maybe?
Footnote: Another guy we'd like to see in a Steelers uniform, with a later pick, if possible: LSU safety Craig Steltz.
We've already chronicled others: Florida WR Andre Caldwell, WVU FB Owen Schmitt, Purdue DE Cliff
Yeah, we spend too much time on this, but not enough.
