All is quiet here at the Steelers headquarters. Not much going on, though the building is a little more on lockdown than usual.
I haven't changed my thinking a whole lot in regard to how the Steelers will handle this draft. The preference for me is still that they take an offensive lineman - read, guard - in the first round and move on from there.
But I still get the feeling that Dont'a Hightower will be the pick if he is there.
I don't think they will take Dontari Poe. Too much of a question mark for a first-round pick. That would be out of character for Kevin Colbert.
If Luke Kuechly is available in the range of pick 18, they should seriously consider making the move up.
@ The Browns have traded their fourth, fifth and seventh picks to move up one spot in the first round.
Cleveland will be Cleveland.
@ I'm hearing that Andrew Sweat of Ohio State and Trinity High School here in Washington is on the Steelers radar in the seventh round.
ILB for the Buckeyes. Solid special teams player. Good citizen.
@ The Steelers re-signed quarterback Byron Leftwich to a one-year deal. That means quarterback is probably off the board for them in this draft. They now have five.
