Who they like

Here's a short list of players the Steelers showed interest in at the draft combine in Indianapolis over the weekend:

RB Wali Lundy, Virginia
RB Maurice Drew, UCLA
LB Chad Greenway, Iowa
LB Bobby Carpenter, Ohio State
LB Parys Haralson, Tennessee
S Donte Whitner, Ohio State
DT Babatunde Oshinowo, Stanford
OG Charles Spencer, Pitt
OG Davin Joseph, Oklahoma

That's what we know so far. Lundy and Drew are mid-round prospects, while the linebackers they spoke to carry first-round grades. Whitner is seen as a second-rounder, as are Spencer and Joseph. Oshinowo is a pure nose tackle and carries a late-round grade.

cool stuff Dale. What are the odds Carpenter falls to us or that we trade up for Greenway somehow? Those are the only 1st rders on your short list...

That's the early news. Greenway didn't wow anybody at the combine. But he's a player. Some teams may bump some guys ahead of him because of the combine efforts. Carpenter, I believe, will be there when they pick.

I really like what I see in Whitner. I think he would be a good addition to the Steelers along with bringing Ty Law in to sure up the secondary.
