    I don't think that would affect him at all. He is a licensed gun owner who had his gun out of state. I think the Steelers front office will document the incident. But it won't change a thing as it regards their interest in him

    I think we knew what you meant. We do need at least one good inside backer this year from somewhere!

    I think you guys are all crazy. Even the NFL is trying to figure out if they need a new rule to stop the QB sneaks that have 2 RBs pushing the QB froward from behind to get the 1st down.

    All a defense needs is a good 400-pound NT pushing back against the 198-pound QB to stop the 1st down!

    I have seen a couple drafts projecting Lukas Van Ness to the steelers. I've not heard much about him though.

    I wouldn't want them to take him at #17.

    Van Ness is a defensive end who looks to translate to edge rusher (olb in our defense), which is where he's listed in most draft prospect rankings. He's a top five edge rusher.

    Saw that. Also read that they like Mazi better than Bresee. I believe the word they used for Mazi was "brawler".

    I'm a strong lean towards Brian Branch being that #1 pick. 17 seems too low for the top CB's and too high for the 2nd tier CBs. Bresee doesn't seem to be the fit that Mazi or Benton does. If Carter drops, I'm sprinting to the podium running over elderly people and children to announce Carter to the Stillas. A lot can and will change between now and the end of April.

    mazi makes sense for the base 3-4 and the 2 down linemen sets we run so much of. he can play in both. it's really a void we have had since alualu got hurt two years ago and this year as his age caught up to him. adams is fine as a backup but this kid will fill that void. :cool:

    That little Make A Wish kid announcing Washington's pick just ahead of us will be tossed into the 3rd row if Carter is still on the board.
