I would love for the Ravens to trade up to #2.  I hope they have to give up the farm to do so.

My first round hopes aren't particular.  Per my own preferences, the Steelers haven't targeted anyone I really like or dislike, sans Jonathan Stewart.

God help me should he fall to 1.23.  That would be a wicked backfield.

But I'm not over or underwhelmed by guys like Cherilus, Mayo, Phillips or Talib.
Maybe that's because there are numerous areas that either desperately need youth or improvement.

I'd be pretty happy if they get McGlynn

I'll add...having no preference for players in the late 1st round, I'd prefer the Steelers trade down

I would love to get a few more picks via trading down

KC takes Dorsey with their first pick.  Thats one team that was slated to take a OT in round one.  Granted they have another pick before us, but that is one down.  More likely for one of the top tackles to fall to us.

Adding a OT is not sexy but looks like a probability now....even though it is still early.  I do love how fast the draft is moving.

Same, doesn't give as much time for people to analyze during the draft.  What a hell of a trade for Balty.  Damn

Good move by both NE and Balt.

OL are dropping down the board.  Albert didn't go in the top 10, as many 'net mocks projected.

Long at 1 and Clady at 12.  That leaves us Williams, Otah, and Albert as 1st round graded OL.  Hmmmmm

There goes Stewart to Carolina, a team expected to take a OL.  Its getting better for us.
