    I think both would be alright. Im apprehensive about taking Conley. Yeah he may be completely innocent, then again maybe he's not.

    To get Obi and Tankersley would be great. I like Phillips. I think most would see him as not being enough to fill our pass rushing needs.

    I found Phillips's game tape to be about 6th-7th round quality.

    Move Griffin up to Conley

    Slide Conley into the 6th round.

    Do you expect the Steelers to not go Pass Rusher until the 3rd??? My money is on round 1 or 2 at the latest.

    I would expect them too or hope they do if the right guy falls in there lap. I'm just use to the Steelers always pulling a weird move when it comes to the draft and just think this is gonna be it.

    I can honestly say, it wouldn't surprise me to see them not take an edge until late. Yes. I think we all know it's a need, but I also think they look at ILB and S and CB as needs as well as TE and RB. I think it all depends on what the other teams do. The Steelers have done their homework....and they are going to have a great draft. If waiting till next year is required, then so be it. That just means they needs a late rounder to work out or that we have to take someone early next year. Dupree contributed right away....that pick could as well.

    I would love your first option above! Those first six picks would be ideal. I'm thinking Conley is innocent so for me this would be like getting two first rounders and Butt seems to be the best blocking TE this year.

    First one but give me Tanoh and Everett in the 3rd instead.

    They aren't touching Conley.

    I would like the first option. The second one leaves some to be desired for me, I'm just not a fan of Phillips, Tankersley or Hodges.

    I doubt they're going to touch him. But he's most likely innocent and it's a chance to take arguably the best CB in the draft. Him, Burns, Davis and Jones could be a great secondary. But that's why I took another CB in the 4th just incase something comes of it.

    So far so good on the first one! Conley off the board before our first rounder tho...
