How do they not trade up for Oher after  he falls into the 20s?...and to make matters worse, they let Baltimore snag him?  Great. 

!@#$%^&*&$#@#$%^&*()

Honestly, if they didn't make that move for an OT in R1, I'd prefer they not pick one now.  Go off the beaten path and take the BPA still on the board...Malauga.  Best LB corp in the league.  Or, Gilbert.  Focus on OL in R2 even if it means a trade up.

I'd rather we trade down or for a #1 next year to some turd team like the Raidahs.

Interesting.  I wonder if they project him more as a DE. 

They better take OL with 2 of their next 3 picks.

Here is the ESPN/Scouts card on Ziggy

_____________
Overall Football Traits
Production   2   2005-'06: Hood starts in seven of 22 games played during first two seasons and combines for 59 tackles, including 7.5 TFL. 2007-'08: Hood starts all 28 games during his final two seasons and finishes with 111 total tackles, including 15 TFL and 10 sacks.
Height-Weight-Speed   2   Possesses prototypical height and adequate-to-good bulk. Also shows excellent straight-line speed for the position.
Durability   2   Missed three full games with a broken foot as a sophomore in 2006 but started all 28 games during his final two seasons at Missouri.
Character   1   Hard worker on and off the field. No off the field issues to our knowledge. Leads by example and his effort is contagious.
Defensive Tackle specific Traits
Agility/Quickness   2   Displays very good quickness. Fires off the ball and usually wins with quick first-step. Not a great athlete, though. Struggles to change directions fluidly and shows too much stiffness.
Strength/Toughness   4   Has good size for a three-technique type. Is a high-motor player with toughness. Won't back down from a physical matchup but simply lacks good strength to hold his ground. Lacks lower body strength and does not display a powerful upper body, either.
Instincts   2   Shows above average overall instincts. Consistently displays good snap awareness. Does a good job of finding the ball when he gets through the line of scrimmage. Lacks ideal pass rushing instincts and needs to do a better job of setting up offensive linemen with his array of moves. He does a great job of sniffing out the screen and draw plays, though.
Pass Rusher   2   Upside is limited but effort is outstanding. Most of his battles won are because of his quickness. Shows good anticipation and explodes off the ball. Uses effective swim and rip moves. Is relentless as a pass rusher and will never quit fighting. However, he lacks ideal closing burst and doesn't change directions fluidly when he gets through the line of scrimmage. He also struggles to generate a consistent push as a bull rusher if he doesn't win with his first step.
Run Stopper   2   Uses quick first step to penetrate and disrupt. Very active and at his best on the move. Will pursue backside and makes some plays on pure effort. However, he plays too high and with a narrow base. Struggles to hold ground when teams run at him.

I like the pick. The Steelers need D-line depth and a guy who can start by 2010, and they weren't going to get that anywhere but in the first round.

Besides, this guy will be better than Brett Keisel by about week 5.
