I really want a receiver to be taken first, but I would be fine with us going o-line first; especially after seeing that stat that he's taken the most hits. Warmack would be a great pick, and the info about him going to high school with Cam is a good little tidbit.

Warmack would help open up the run game too, if you go to NFL.com and look at our offensive line statistics the MAJORITY of our success came when we ran the ball to left side.

I know we need a RG desperately, but given the cap situation and the value of the LT position, we may want to go that way.

For you draftniks out there, which tackles carry a 1st round grade that might be available at our pick?

Most college linemen wear knee braces.

Because O line is such an obvious need this means we will draft a CB in the first.


Hurney no longer works here :)

I noticed Warmack last year while watching Fletcher Cox get owned during the Alabama game. Cox was taken out of the game any time he lined up over Warmack.

Again, our line is terrible. Cam too will begin getting injured for long periods of time(look at big ben) if we do not protect him.


And the Steelers address their OL needs in the draft:

Steeler Drafts since 2010

2112:
RD SEL # PLAYER POSITION SCHOOL
1 24 David DeCastro G Stanford
2 56 Mike Adams T Ohio State

2111:
RD SEL # PLAYER POSITION SCHOOL
2 63 Marcus Gilbert T Florida
6 196 Keith Williams G Nebraska

2110:
1 18 Maurkice Pouncey C Florida
5 151 Chris Scott T Tennessee


In that same time frame the Panthers have drafted one OL prospect higher than round 6 and two others in rounds 6 & 7:

2112:
2 40 Amini Silatolu G Midwestern State
2011
6 203 Zack Williams C Washington State
7 244 Lee Ziemba T Auburn

Steelers have made it a priority to draft O lineman high because holding the ball a long time is a part of Big Bens game. Gotta protect him as long as you can.

In no order:

Luke Joeckel
Dallas Thomas
Taylor Lewan
Eric Fisher

Joeckel will be long gone and probably at least one of Lewan or Fisher.

Good call...

Warmack is the likeliest player available when the Panthers draft that will add a new dimension to the team. Many of our plays (run and pass) were stuffed due to poor interior line play - mostly RG, but Amini made his share of mistakes as well. A guy like Warmack would prove more valuable than can be imagined at first glance; but just think about it.

What if our RBs actually had holes to run through? Maybe Chud would actually call runs on consecutive plays that aren't options.

What if Cam could actually step up in to the pocket consistently? Maybe those intermediate passes don't sail on him so much.

What if Chud could call a lead/load/trap/blast inside the redzone without the fear of a run for a loss? Maybe they wouldn't have to settle for so many FGs.
