Who don't you want our division rivals to draft?

Today, 11:09 AM

1.  Bucs.....I hope they take Winston.  He doesn't strike me as an NFL QB.  He does have skills, but

his off field issues could get him in real hot water in the post Ray Rice NFL.  


I hope they don't take Dante Fowler or Leonard Williams, both of whom should be stars, and

especially since our outside pass protection is so iffy.





8.  Falcons....don't want them to get Beasley or Dupree, for the reasons listed above,  or DT  Danny Shelton, who could be the the next Sheldon Richardson.   Also hope they don't get Amari White....he's going to be step in and be good for a long time.  I hope they take Perriman, who isn't worth a top 10 pick.




13.  Taints...Randy Gregory could fall to them.  That would suck.  And I hope none of the big 3 WR's make it to them.

Not as worried about their second pick in the first, considering the drop in talent after the first 15 or so.



pre-season strength of schedule ranks

22 April 2015 - 11:39 AM





doesn't mean a lot, but because of our crappy division last year, we have the 27th hardest schedule this year.


As far as home schedules go,  we are number 22, and on the road 31 and that includes games at Dallas

and Seattle.  (!!) 


Atlanta has the easiest schedule.






For what it's worth, and it appears meaningful for the 2015 Steelers, the team with the toughest preseason SOS has missed the playoffs in six of the past seven seasons. The only team that has advanced against those odds is the 2013Carolina Panthers. Good night and good luck to everyone involved.

Running backs other than Gurley

31 March 2015 - 10:47 AM

We know we're drafting a running back.  If we don't get Gurley, who are the other targets?


these are the ones we know we've met with


The Dakota kids and Hill will be late rounders.  Allen, Coleman and Johnson are mid-rounders.





Zach Zenner, South Dakota State (Shrine Game)
John Crocket, North Dakota State (Shrine Game & Pro Day)
Javorius "Buck" Allen, University of Southern California (On Campus)
Telvin Coleman, Indiana University (Private)
Todd Gurley, Georgia (On Campus)
Keyshawn Hill, Sam Houston State (Pro Day)
Duke Johnson, University of Miami (Combine)
Who fits our system best?
and have we not met with Melvin Gordon, Jay Ajayi, Abdullah and the Alabama kid, all of whom have
2 or 3rd day potential? 

Panthers have just claimed OL Jonathan Martin.

my 7 round mock with comp picks added

24 March 2015 - 12:56 PM

I did this based off the Fanspeak simulator game, and with a mix of what I want and what I think

Gettleman would do.  I know he's in love with Gurley, but I'd rather take an OT or WR in the first,

and Gurley won't fall to us in the second.


Going in, my goals are to get starters at OT and WR, a safety and a CB, adding depth at other positions.



1.  Very tough choice here...I'm choosing between CB Trae Waynes, WR Jaelen Strong, OT Peat,  RB's Gordon and Gurley, and DE's  Preston Smith and OO, both of whom we had contact with.  I know how much Getty loves his DE's.

I think Getty would go with Gurley.  I want to go with Waynes.  of course, Getty wins.


Todd Gurley





2.   I'm choosing between Peat and DJ Humphries....can't see either of them falling to us in the 2nd in the real world.

Also choosing between WR's Perriman and Agholor, both whom I love.   None of these guys will be here in the 3rd, so I'm going with the one I think will be the sure thing for us for years.


Nelson Agholor
Position: WR | Height: 6'1" | Weight: 190



view his stats here...








3.    choosing between CB's Kevin White, Josh Shaw, and  DE Trey Flowers.  I'm pretty comfortable with Alexander and Ealy opposite CJ for one more year.  


Kevin White, CB, TCU



4.    OT Rob Havenstein,  Wisconsin.  Even if he doesn't win a starting job, we need depth at this position.



5.   S  JORDAN RICHARDS - STANFORD    Good value here at a position we are very thin at.  I may even take another S later.



5.   Second Pick of the 5th!    Near the top of the BPA's are another OT, a G, and a DT...we need depth at all three positions.  


DT  XAVIER WILLIAMS - NORTHERN IOWA   Dont know much about him, but we need to start grooming a rotational player to replace Cole and Edwards.  And we may not be able to sign both KK and Star due to cap issues.  I believe we'll spend a top 3 pick next year on a DT.  This pick

should help a little in the future transitions.



6.    I'm choosing between speedster WR Stefon Diggs and DE  LYDEN TRAIL - NORFOLK STATE who Jeremy liked in his mock.  He's got the measurables, and in the sixth, it's certainly 

worth a shot.  







6.  Second pick of the 6th               

7.   I wouldn't mind trading this pick to move up in the 5th or 6th, but I hate mocks that
try to anticipate a trade.  I wish we could have gotten a better player at OLB, but the
value was never there.   Hope he provides depth.
