Steelers Six From Around The Web – Friday February 26th
Unrestricted free agent Ryan Clark was not tagged yesterday, but the Steelers are working on getting him signed still if the numbers are right. Joel Turner, Clark\’s agent, claims Clark is offering a hometown discount of sorts to stay in Pittsburgh.
The Texans and the Falcons had a coin flip this morning to decide who would pick after the Steelers in round 1. The Falcons won and will pick 19th, while the Texans will pick 20th in the first round.
Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette speculates that despite signing Casey Hampton to a new deal, the Steelers still could pick a nose tackle in round one based on the comments made by Steelers GM Kevin Colbert on Thursday. I think otherwise, but as Scott Brown points out though, nose tackles remain a hot commodity throughout the league.
Idaho\’s Mike Iupati is already turning heads at the combine. He very well could be most versatile find in NFL draft this year and the Steelers would have to give him serious consideration at the 18th pick should they decide to stay there.
