    Was listening to Kiper's weekly show, where he was giving his predictions..

    Of interest, he says that Mike goes to Atlanta, Roy goes to Jacksonville, Rivers to the Steelers at 11 and Reggie to San Francisco.. He also said Miami would take Michael Clayton at 20, and claimed he felt Clayton's poor 40 time was misleading..

    Thoughts?

    He made those predictions over a week ago. But remember while it looks good for the steelers to take rivers early on, they don't have a running back so don't be surprised if they take the stud from Oregon State...

    True but Zereoue(sp) is still out there and the Steelers could resign him. I think if Rivers is there for them how can you not take him.

    I'm fine with Clayton though if he's there that means so are Woods, Evans, & Jenkins so I'd trade down a little.

    I'd be a little disappointed if we took Clayton at 20 to be honest. I'd rate him as the 7th-8th WR.

    No offense, but Kiper sucks, and he really doesn't have a clue, and either do we. Clayton could easily fall to the 2nd round...........especially since Mike Williams has entered the draft.

    Kiper gets more right on the week before the draft. Right now he's just as good as us.

    Clayton's 40 time was misleading as I stated 5-10 times. He's still very unpolished and I'd prefer Rashaun Woods over him if Reggie is gone. Woods would come in and spark our offense with an immedient impact and his route running will help Chambers out downfield.

    would anybody be disappointed with trading down a little and getting jenkins and a third or fourth rounder? i think that once you get past the top four receivers, you can throw a blanket on the next four or five including woods, jenkins and evans. jmo of course

    I love Jenkins. Big, fast receiver who isn't much of a blazer but has enough speed to go downfield. However, I'm beginning to be completely sold on Rashaun Woods and I would be disappointed if the big four were gone and we pass on him. We'll see..

    Don't forget the comments that Spielman had one Woods in a combine article. He classified him as a "stud".

    He predicted the Bills would go after either Gamble or DeAngelo Hall of Virginia Tech to replace Winfield at CB.

    Zereoue sucks as a starter. He'll never be more than a role player.
    Bettis is old and slow ala emmitt smith. He's only coming back for one more year. So Pittsburgh really needs a RB. Especially since they're supposed to be returning to their old philosophy of run the ball and play defense.

    I'd say they have Stephen Jackson #1 on their draft board. They could possibly look for a QB in the second or third to learn behind Maddox for a year or so. I could be wrong though. They were "supposedly" looking at Feeley. I do however follow the Steelers quite a bit cause my Bro in law is huge fan.

    I think their priorities are:

    #1 Running back
    #2 Cornerback
    #3 Quarterback

    So there ya go. For no reason at all i just gave you an offseason assesment of the Steelers. :goof:

    No one liked Mark Clayton either. 27 WR's were drafted ahead of him. That's right...I said 27. Clayton was finally selected by us in the 8th round.

    I'd take Michael Clayton easily. He's got game. I hope he is still there at #20.

    i'd rather have Woods then Clayton. Granted, i'd prefer Reggie Williams over either of them, but of the 2 i'd want Woods. He seems more polished, more ready to contribute. Clayton is good and very talented, but hes only been a full-time WR for what, a year? If we were deeper at WR i'd want clayton to groom, but i'd rather have Woods now to get more of a 1st yr contribution.
