Representing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the BGN mock draft Ayydamn selects...
Max Unger, OG Oregon
The largest glaring need for the Steelers in this draft is to begin and add youth to their offensive line. Although Big Ben isn't always the smartest when it comes to being pressured, most of the sacks can be pinned on the old offensive lines inability to block effectively. Max Unger provides a huge presence in the center position.
After winning the Super Bowl last year, the Steelers didn't lose many key players in the offseason. The loss of Nate Washington at WR is a position that can be filled in the latter rounds of the draft. The defense is still one of the tops in the league, but securing the offensive line will be the key to them returning to the promise land in 2009. The competitive, play-to-the-whistle approach that Unger has will fill the need of an offensive lineman that the Steelers desire.
Commish take after the jump. We're done!
Commish take - Ayydamn had it pretty spot on. The Steelers don't have many holes and they didn't lost very much this offseason. However, they do have some age on their offensive line and Unger is a guy that can potentially play anywhere along that line. He should fit in perfectly in Pittsburgh
And with that, we're done! Here it is, the final BGN community mock draft. Unfortunately it's a bit out of date with the Cutler trade, but this was quite an undertaking and I want to thank everyone who was a part of it.
