The Pittsburgh Steelers, represented by PABroncoFan, select....
JEFF OTAH, OT - PITTSBURGH
G.M. - PABroncoFan -- Offensive Line is the Steeler's #1 need. I was thinking about Godser Cherilus here, but I realized that nobody took Otah. He has been generally rated higher than Cherilus, and has more of a chance in the future to play LT when Marvel Smith leaves or retires. I was looking at WR here, but when Sweed was picked, I turned to OT because Devin Thomas and DeSean Jackson are not the type of big 6'3' or taller guy Big Ben is looking for. James Hardy also was an option, but I am going to gamble that he is still there in the second round or possibly trade up or take a flyer on Adarius Bowman in the third or fourth.
