I wouldn't be surprised to see them move their 5th with the Seahawks 3rd to move up in the 3rd round and get Bing.

I think they get him, if they want, without moving up.

Well, Bing is there if they want him. I'd go DB here and O-line next pick.

Anthony Smith's profile is rather unimpressive.

I'm thinking special teams and coachability. They must feel they can coach him up. ESPN said he had a terrible year but has upside like the link you gave said.

He looks to have a ton of raw talent and will be good in kick coverage. We'll find out in a year or two if he can be coached I guess.

4-3, PP goal by Bridgeport, less than 2 minutes to go...

And Fillewich scores an EN with 1:08 to go.

And Bridport scores with 44 seconds left, 5-4...

As it stands now the Steel have 9 picks. Factor in an undrafted FA or 2 making the team and they don't have enough roster openings for all the picks. I think they will trade a few tomorrow to get a high 4th round pick. With the Steel's depth they ended up cutting at least 2 picks last year (Gibson & Herron) that made other teams.

Who has very few picks tomorrow? And I don't think we can trade the compensatory picks which stinks.

Can't trade the compensary picks, your right. I don't think anyone trades for tomorrow.

They can't trade the compensatory picks but they still have a 5th, 6th, and 7th they can deal. I think they have a 4th, 5th, and 7th in compensatory picks.

I think they will unload a few picks tomorrow since they can afford to.

not impressed with the pick of Anthony Smith at 83.

I'm guessing QB at 95 with Reggie McNeal.

Actully not too bad. Looks like a very good punt returner to start and I'd rather have Holmes strictly play WR and no special teams.

Delpen - I agree needing a returner so they can keep Holmes safe but a third round pick on a guy that probably could have went way later in the draft.

You just never now bout dem stillers, lol. Hey they usually pick players, guys that can be coached. I have to give them the nod that they knew what they wanted and they picked the best they could. Night all

I've been watching hockey so I don't know what Kiper is saying, but this draft seems to be very off the board in terms of many guys going earlier/later than projected starting around the 20th pick and continuing right through the 3rd round.

Kiper said he would be a good return guy and could be coached up to be a decent WR. Since they selected Reid, I guess the love affair by ESPN Radio hosts will not have Jeremy Bloom to drool over.

Reid averaged 15 yards per punt return with 2TDs last season, so they must see him being an impact return man. Scouts Inc had him pegged in the 5th.
