    We are looking at Tyrell Williams now.

    If we sign him, it could solidify a Bush at 1 and a move up for fant at 2.

    :cool:

    I doubt Metcalf will bust, but he's just likely a Mike Wallace/Martavis Bryant type of receiver.

    He will put up some numbers but he will never develop into a complete dominant WR1. Physically he may remind people of Julio but he just doesn't have the same skill set.

    Normally I would agree but I wouldn’t be asking Fant to come in and take over the TE spot. He would be used to create mismatches in the passing game. He can be schemed to be effective without having to worry so much about the blocking aspect of the game. Like I said basically he is a jumbo WR right now and just as fast as most of the WRs in the draft. He won’t be expected to learn and master a extensive route tree.
    Down the road he can and will expand his overall game. There is way more depth at the WR position. We could have our new TE for the next 10 years. Also WR is gonna come in and struggle more IMO . JUJU was the outlier and having AB opposite him certainly didn’t hurt....

    It says they see Sutton as a slot and not a outside CB

    I know Miller was a while ago, but I think it was recent enough to be relevant. That said, I'd still rather see them get more defensive help or even a wide receiver in the first round.

    I agree with that. If think there plan is ILB and then if the board doesn’t break right, WR if it’s there.

    Well if Ben was a better teammate and Tomlin had some balls we wouldn't have this problem.

    We all know that stats can be made to read any way you want them to but he seems to play with intensity and talent.

    Yeah I know I thought he was listed as a safety. Maybe I read the depth chart wrong

    As an Illini fan living in Iowa, I hate to agree with you but I do. I think Fant is a stud that has the speed to play big WR too. Seen him run away from defenders.

    I think a solid receiver will definitely be there at 20. MLB will be the harder player to get.

    You'd have a point but it isnt just AB who called out Ben. More teammates between the two have publicly criticized Ben as a teammate and leader than AB.

    That is not the point right now... wanna get rid of AB then fine, but you better get rid of the BEST receiver the last 8 years for more than a 3 and a 5....

    Well I still say he should of been moved there since he can’t see the light of day at CB

    We could have done better and could have done much worse. For a guy targeted so often due to how often KC scored thus giving him an insane number of snaps, he was pretty damn solid. It's just nice to finally have a legit No. 2 corner. This gives us the freedom to fill other holes. Remember, Pittsburgh's only REAL loss this year will be AB - albeit he's a bit one. We've improved in nearly every other area.

    Nelson did okay vs AB in last seasons KC game. He had a pick in the end zone but it was called back due to pass interference.

    He also seems to be in his man's hip pocket instead of staring into the backfield as he runs past going I thought that was your guy.
