Dunno if this has been mentioned. Thought I'd share

Their primary targets were presumably Ras-I Dowling and Aaron Williams, the first two players off the board on Friday. The Steelers were "all ready" to draft Brandon Harris late in the round, only to see the Texans trade up to steal him. Tackle Marcus Gilbert was Plan B for Pittsburgh.

Kubiak was on the radio recently and he said that he sees Harris as an immediate option to play the nickel.

That doesn't sound like too big of a role for him.

Kiper has a serious case of A.D.D. or maybe multiple personality disorder.

On air he put the Texans on blast for the Harris pick during his reaction, then turned around and called it a "particularly good value pick" in his grades.



I liked the pick personally.

When I saw we had traded up I was like "We just grabbed Harris!*high five*"

I love the Harris pick, and think that he could start off as the nickel without much of a problem. That said, I would feel a lot better if the lockout ends so these young players can get into camp.

That's because on TV John Gruden called him out. John Gruden even said something to the affect of 'why are you so upset. You are just picking on the Texans. Give them a break. They already have a very good offense and they've had a great draft today.'

I agree Harris will be a great nickelback his rookie season. I think Harris was a great pick and should be a fixture for this team at nickel and possibly 2 years down the road he could be a solid starter.

And then a little later on another program, Kiper picked us to go to the playoffs.

I just kept seeing that clip where he said there was no way that David Carr or Joey Harrington would be busts.

We're doomed.

Well to make you feel better, he at first didn't like our draft. He also didn't like our 2006 draft.
