    Someone who is a draft guru, help educate me on who the guys are we should and could be looking at for this position in the next draft.

    What steelcityclash stated.


    Best hope is Devin White. He is Myles Jack 2.0. An uber athlete who can flat out play.


    If not him, if RaShaan Evans was any indication (the Steelers did indeed try to trade up for him) Josh Allen is the next best choice. He can play inside or outside but is far more of an athlete than RaShaan ever was.


    Dark Horse though is without a doubt Devin Bush. He may not have prototypical height or size but he is every bit as athletic as you would want a linebacker.

    Why bother? You believe the Steelers know how to draft defensive talent?

    Well the way we’re playing, we have to have a better shot at picking a top prospect. You don’t have to know much about D to know white is a stud.

    Maybe we can make a deal with Ozzie Newsome, he can make our defensive picks and we'll get him a few decent wr's for once.

    I liked Cam Smith a ton last year as a later round guy but then he didn't come out so I am still on his bandwagon. I haven't seen him play this year as I don't get into college until much later in the season.

    They use to be able to draft linebackers. They can't seem to draft db's in the order they usually draft, there is something
    wrong in the scouting department. Scouts are not watching enough film, talking to people. This really needs attention.

    Going with a small school guy to monitor. Not a first rounder but may be a nice addition in the mid rounds.

    Ulysses Gilbert out of Akron. On the smaller side but fast and athletic. Jatavis Brown also out of Akron is with the Chargers and is playing well, the Zips may produce another. Better suited to a 4-3 I'll admit, but you never know.

    I watched some Dakota Allen, Texas Tech, today and he has done some nice things, but the guy cannot disengage from a blocker. I will have to see more at the end of the season.

    I'm looking forward to tonights game of Clemson-Boston College. Some good defensive prospects there.
