Drafting a nose = bad idea this year.

Nose tackle prospects in the draft:

Dontari Poe, Memphis -- raw, from small school, inconsistent motor.
Alameda Ta'amu, Washington -- looks great one moment, notsogreat the next, more of a 1 gap
Josh Chapman, Alabama -- a little undersized, coming off ACL injury
Nick Jean-Baptiste, Baylor -- poor man's Phil Taylor
Henry Fangupo, BYU -- old rookie, completely raw from a goofy system, will needs a couple years

Everybody else is from a small school, or is a nobody getting attention for their size alone and is raw as red meat.

Now, check this out:

Nose tackle prospects in free agency:

Paul Soliai, Dolphins -- massive 2-gap hole-clogger, no longer fits Dolphins defense
Sione Pouha, Jets -- experienced 2-gapper, talented but past prime, could put in a solid season
Sammy Lee Hill, Lions -- huge, could be a decent value acquisition, not sure how he'd fit in a 2-gap
Antonio Garay, Chargers -- more of a 1-gapper
Kelly Gregg, Chiefs -- just sayin'
Shaun Rogers, Saints -- good one-year rental for the position
Aubrayu Franklin, Saints -- more of a 1-gapper
Casey Hampton, Steelers -- outside chance he lands on the market
Amon Gordon, Chiefs -- knows our system, Crennel likes him
Bryant McKinnie, Ravens -- could fill the role
Howard Green, Packers -- more of a 1-gapper but he did crack Cassel's ribs in the preseason, soooo...

My conclusion is that the draft is very shallow at the nose position.

It's not much better in free agency, but at least you've got guys that can play there.

I have talked to an NFL scout who sees Poe a lot more like a Haloti Ngata (don't freak out, I meant style, not skill) in that he would actually act more like a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme.
So he can play NT and DE for us. That could prove to be an awsome thing.

If Poe can play the run at DE and get an inside rush on passing downs, that's something we don't have now. He can crumble the pocket from inside.

Wonder what teams will be in the bidding for him?

I figure us, the Texans, Steelers, and the Redskins.
Colts are switching to 3-4 this off season also.

I think the Chiefs, Texans, Steelers will be in the running for Soliai.


I could see him going to pitt but they really look for a 1 tech.

I don't think the Steelers will be in the mix for Solai.

They are the kind of team that would draft Poe, rather than go after a free agent.

They develop in house.

The Colts are going to have enough cap problems even with cutting Manning this year. They are a rebuilding team. You don't sign top money FAs when rebuilding.

I think they're going to cut him, and draft a new one. Whoever they take will be solid gold. That's just what that organization does.

Steelers are two-gap. They will therefore need a two-gapping 0 tech.

Which Soliai is.

This is out of a Courtney Upshaw interview over at NFLDraftCountdown...

Quote:
Scott Wright: The Crimson Tide obviously had a ton of talent. If you could choose just one former teammate to build an NFL team around, who would you pick and why?

Courtney Upshaw: Josh Chapman. He's a guy nobody talks about much, but without him inside plugging gaps for the inside backers like Dont'a and Nico and all those guys... We really wanted to be the #1 run stopping defense this year and that guy is just phenomenal. He doesn't ask for all the praise so if I could take anybody it would be him.
http://www.draftcountdown.com/interv...ney-Upshaw.php


I still think this guy... Chapman... would be a pretty good fit for us with one of our day two picks (2nd or 3rd round).

The guy was a 3rd before having surgery on his ACL. He supposedly played a bunch of games with the torn ACL, but anything higher than a 4th on him and I'll pass. The only thing hes going to be able to do at the combine is the bench.

I don't really see him fitting the two gap system, but he could I guess. What do I know.

Steelers are over the cap and will lose their own FA, Texans probably won't even have the cap to resign several key FA including Mario Williams.

Chiefs on the other hand have the most room than any team in the NFL $63 million


Steelers GM Colbert sees 'serious' salary-cap problems
NFL.com Wire Reports
Published: Feb. 13, 2012 at 03:03 p.m.
Updated: Feb. 14, 2012 at 11:20 p.m


The Pittsburgh Steelers have many big roster decisions to make, but they won't happen soon.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Monday that the team probably won't make any moves until free agency begins March 13, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, allowing all eligible players to hit the open market. Colbert said the team has "serious issues" with the salary cap.

As of Feb. 6, the Steelers were $22.5 million over the cap, according to NFL.com research. The team has restructured several contracts since then.

"What our team will be at training camp? I don't know what it will be," Colbert said.

Colbert also said the team hasn't yet made a decision about veteran wide receiver Hines Ward, who has two years and $8 million remaining on his contract, although there have been "internal discussions."

Ward, 35, has publicly said he wants to play out the rest of his career in Pittsburgh despite his diminished role behind Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders. NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora cited sources in reporting last week that the Steelers are likely to cut Ward, who became the eighth player in NFL history to reach 1,000 career receptions.

The Steelers' priority is keeping Wallace, who was just named to his first Pro Bowl after posting 71 receptions for 1,182 yards and eight touchdowns. Pittsburgh could use the franchise tag on Wallace, but Colbert said the team wants to lock up the receiver to a long-term contract.

One of the players who will return, eventually, is running back Rashard Mendenhall. Colbert said Monday that Mendenhall likely will begin next season on the physically unable to perform list after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the regular-season finale against the Cleveland Browns.

Even while expecting to be without Mendenhall, who had 228 carries for 928 yards and nine touchdowns last season, Colbert doesn't consider finding help at running back an offseason priority for the Steelers. He said Isaac Redman has "established himself as an NFL running back," according to the Post-Gazette, and mentioned rookies John Clay and Baron Batch and second-year pro Jonathan Dwyer as possibilities at the position.
