Todd McShay has the Pouncey the younger going to ATL and the Steelers getting an OL with a history of injury problems:

Quote:
Benjamin Ijalana, OT, Villanova
Ijalana is an under-the-radar FCS prospect, but he possesses good physical tools and a lot of upside. A lack of depth along the offensive line was an issue for the Steelers in 2010, and assuming Ijalana's nagging minor injuries have healed, he could add depth while preparing for a full-time starting job.


I would like getting an OL and one with upside, but I'm wary of drafting one with a history of injury problems.

Well then, you should be pretty happy that the Steeler FO doesn't pay a wit of attention to these publications.

Probably, and then the lawsuits will be filed. I remember reading some time back that the NFL draft could not survive a legal challenge if it was not sanctioned by the collective bargaining agreement. It was a while back, so my memory might be a bit hazy, so I could be wrong, but all it would take is one Scott Boras type agent to overturn it.

According to ESPN AFC North blogger/'insider' James Walker, the Steelers are planning to franchise LaMar Woodley.

I'm not sure how that would work out, with the CBA/lockout and all, but...

The Jets released OL Damien Woody... if there's a season and depending on how much $ he wants, anybody think he'd be a good fit?
