iight so I was think to myself Faneca wants to leave more than likely he will Pittsburgh is a cheap city don't get mad I'm from Pittsburgh so why not play smart and trade him to the Raiders wishful thinkin but think about it yea more than likely they want Russell but they really don't have the line to protect him why not trade Faneca and give the a few draft selections preferably in the 5-last round for that number one spot like I said wishful thinkin but they could trade up with teams in the lower 10 and grab up somebody stelar if that did happen I would either go LB,CB,WR,or RB but being that the team is drifting away player by player these next 4-5 years is gonna be a HURE reconstruction period for us

Steelers Select Eight Players in 2007 NFL Draft


PITTSBURGH — The Steelers added eight players, including two linebackers in the first two rounds of the 2007 NFL Draft. The team chose four players on defense, three on offense and one specialist during the 72nd NFL Draft. Among the eight players selected by the Steelers were two linebackers, one tight end, a punter, defensive end, offensive guard, cornerback and wide receiver.

The Steelers selected Florida State linebacker Lawrence Timmons with the 15th overall pick. Timmons became the first linebacker selected by the Steelers in the first round since 1991 (Huey Richardson), and only the third in team history (Robin Cole, 1977). Timmons finished his college career with 126 tackles, 22.5 tackles for losses, eight sacks, seven defensed passes and four blocked kicks.

“I’m excited about some of the things that these guys are capable of,” said head coach Mike Tomlin. “We stayed true to the board and looked at the value of the pick that we had on the board and how we aligned them on the board and we approached it that way.”

The Steelers further strengthened their depth at linebacker in the second round when they selected LaMarr Woodley (46th overall) from Michigan. It was the first time since 1987 that the Steelers selected two players at the same position with their first two picks. That year, Pittsburgh selected cornerbacks Rod Woodson and Delton Hall with their first two choices.

“Mike and his staff put in a ton of work, as did my scouting staff as they always do,” said Director of Football Operations Kevin Colbert. “They were very well-prepared and there were no situations where we panicked. We always had options at every pick and we felt that we picked the best options.”

The Steelers chose Minnesota tight end Matt Spaeth with their third-round selection (77th overall). Spaeth, who won the John Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end in 2006, caught 109 passes for 1,291 yards (11.8 avg.) and 12 touchdowns during his career with the Gophers. The final two offensive players selected by the Steelers were Rutgers guard Cameron Stephenson with their first pick in the fifth round (156th), and Florida wide receiver Dallas Baker in the seventh (227th).

The Steelers traded up in the fourth round to select Baylor punter, Daniel Sepulveda with the 112th pick in the Draft. Pittsburgh acquired the pick by trading their first fourth-round choice (119th) and their sixth round pick (192nd) to the Green Bay Packers. Sepulveda, a two-time Ray Guy Award winner as the nation’s top punter, became the first punter drafted by the team since Harry Newsome in 1985 (eighth round).

After bolstering their defense in the first two rounds, the Steelers selected two more defensive players with their second picks in the fourth and fifth rounds — both compensatory picks. Pittsburgh chose Oklahoma State defensive end Ryan McBean (132nd) in the fourth round and Louisville cornerback William Gay (170th) in the fifth.

The Steelers also agreed to terms with 11 rookie free agents, bringing the total to 19 rookies on their offseason roster. All rookies and veterans will participate in the team’s mandatory three-day mini-camp May 11-13.

Quickie Bios on the Pittsburgh Steelers 2007 Draft Choices

Lawrence Timmons (LB)
6-1, 234, Florida State (1st, 15th)
Timmons played in 38 games with 13 starts during his college career…recorded 126 tackles (70 solo), 22.5 tackles for losses, eight sacks and broke up seven passes…blocked four kicks during his career. 2006: Was an All-American third-team and All-Atlantic Coast Conference first-team selection by The NFL Draft…started all 13 games, ranking second on the team with 79 tackles (42 solos)…registered five sacks, 18 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, deflected six passes and blocked two kicks…scored on a 22-yard interception return, a 36-yard fumble recovery and 25 yards on a blocked punt. 2005: Recorded 35 tackles (17 solos) with three sacks and six pressures in 13 games while playing as a reserve…recovered a fumble and caused two others…blocked two punts for 69 yards in returns and deflected one pass. 2004: Was one of 10 true freshmen to letter for the Seminoles…recorded 12 tackles (11 solos) with a stop for a 2-yard loss.

Head Coach Mike Tomlin
We are really excited to have Lawrence (Timmons). His football character is what we seek. He is a guy that loves the game. He is very versatile. His skill set defies scheme, which is one of the things that we have talked about. He is an outside backer who is capable of playing off the line of scrimmage. He is capable of playing on the tight end. He has pass rush capabilities, but he also has the R-H factor. He is a runner and hitter and he is a Pittsburgh Steeler.

Director of Football Operations Kevin Colbert
Lawrence is definitely the guy that we had targeted. Lawrence is an outside linebacker, but we think he has the versatility to play inside as well. He can play at the point, he can chase the ball, he can cover and he can sure rush the passer, so there isn’t anything at the linebacker position that this kid hasn’t done. While he is learning, we think he will be a very good special teams contributor. He is a solid kid; he is healthy and he is coming from a great program and we are really excited to have him on board.



LaMarr Woodley (LB)
6-1, 266, Michigan (2nd, 46th)
Woodley started 33 of his 49 games played…finished career with 177 total tackles (129 solo), 50.5 tackles for losses, 25 sacks and a school record 10 forced fumbles…his 50.5 tackles for losses rank second in school history. 2006: Was a consensus All-American first-team selection and a unanimous All-Big Ten Conference first-team choice…chosen Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year…recorded 36 tackles (28 solos) and led the team for the second straight year with 12 sacks and 16.5 stops for losses…recovered four fumbles, returning one 54 yards for a touchdown…tied the school record with four forced fumbles. 2005: Started eight games and played in 11 contests…finished with 48 tackles (28 solo)...led the squad with seven sacks and 14 stops for losses…caused three fumbles and recovered another. 2004: Was an All-Big Ten Conference second-team selection…played in all 12 games and started 10 contests…finished second on the squad with 70 tackles (58 solos) and four sacks…led the team with 16 stops for losses. 2003: Played in all 13 games and made two starts at defensive end...registered 23 tackles (15 solos), two sacks and four stops for losses.

Linebackers Coach Keith Butler
LaMarr Woodley is going to help us out quite a bit. We have two good outside linebackers here already. LaMarr is depth, this particular year, in addition to helping us with the pass rush on third downs. He’ll take time with the transition, moving from defensive end to outside linebacker, but he has played outside linebacker before. Early in his career at Michigan he stood up. These last couple years he has played the defensive end position, but we feel good about it.


Matt Spaeth (TE)
6-7, 270, Minnesota (3rd, 77th)
Spaeth ranks as Minnesota’s all-time career leader in receiving yards (1,291) and receptions (109) by a tight end…caught 12 touchdowns. 2006: Won the John Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end…was an All-Big Ten Conference first-team selection…started 11 games finished second on the team with 47 receptions for 564 yards (12.0 avg.) and four touchdowns. 2005: Was an All-Big Ten Conference first-team choice…started every game, finishing third on the team with 26 receptions for 333 yards (12.8 avg.) and four touchdowns. 2004: Received honorable mention All-Big Ten accolades…started every game, finishing third on the team with 24 receptions for 298 yards (12.4 avg.) and four touchdowns. 2003: Earned All-Big Ten Conference Freshman Team honors from The Sporting News…saw action in all 13 games, starting 10 contests…ranked sixth on the squad with 12 catches for 96 yards (8.2 avg.)…gained 49 yards on three kickoff returns (16.3 avg.). 2002: Redshirted.

Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arians
Matt is big, tall and fast. He can block; he is an outstanding, prototypical tight end. At 6’7”, he can help stretch the field and he can also handle the point of attack. He gives us good flexibility to take Heath (Miller) and move him around a lot more. I like having three tight ends on the field a lot of times. It gives us a good personnel group, with two tight ends that can stretch the field and all three guys can block the point of attack. He is a very solid guy.


Daniel Sepulveda (P)
6-3, 230, Baylor (4th, 112th)
Sepulveda is the first two-time winner of the Ray Guy Award, given to the top punter in the nation after winning the award 2004 and 2006…set school records with 21 punts for 60 yards or longer, and 94 punts for 50 yards or longer…82 of his punts were downed inside the 20-yard line…had a career-long punt of 78 yards. 2006: Led the nation and set a school season-record with 66 punts for 3,068 yards (46.48 avg.)…20 of his punts were downed inside the 20-yard line and 25 others gained at least 50 yards, including seven for 60 yards or longer. 2005: Ranked third in the nation with a punting average of 46.18 yards, as he connected on 62 kicks for 2,863 yards, including 13 that were downed inside the 20-yard line. 2004: Won the Ray Guy Award as the nation’s top punter…ranked second in the Big Twelve and third nationally with a 45.97-yard average on 62 punts…26 of his kicks were downed inside the 20-yard line and 24 of his boots gained at least 50 yards. 2003: Ranked third in the conference and 23rd nationally with his 43.10-yard average…23 of his punts pinned opponents inside their 20-yard line. 2002: Redshirted after walking on as a linebacker.


Special Teams Coach Bob Ligashesky
He averaged 45 yards for his career. This past year he averaged 46 yards, but actually more importantly, his net for his career was a 40 yards. Then he had 82 kicks inside the 20. He also uses that Aussie style kick, which is an end-over-end rotation inside-the-20 kick. So he has lot of control with the 82 kicks inside the 20. One of the other things that was attractive about him was that he came to Baylor and walked on as a linebacker, so you know he is also an athlete.


Ryan McBean (DE)
6-5, 285, Oklahoma State (4th, 132nd)
McBean has played both defensive tackle and end…in 24 games, he made 23 starts…finished with 62 tackles (32 solos), 7.5 sacks for minus 59 yards and 12.5 stops for losses totaling 69 yards…was credited with one quarterback pressure, one pass break-up, and a blocked kick…also caused and recovered three fumbles. 2006: Started 12 games at left defensive tackle…recorded 25 tackles (12 solos) with 4.5 sacks for minus 42 yards and seven stops for losses of 44 yards…recovered a fumble and caused three others…also credited with one quarterback pressure. 2005: Started every game at left defensive tackle…had 37 tackles (20 solos) with three sacks and 5.5 stops for losses…recovered a pair of fumbles, deflected one pass and blocked a kick. Junior College: Enrolled at Hinds (Miss.) Community College in 2003…started all 20 games he played in over the course of his next two years…in 2004, he posted 58 tackles with seven quarterback sacks to receive first-team All-Conference accolades.

Defensive Line Coach John Mitchell

He’s an end, and he’s a guy that I feel can play both ways — as a nose, and end. The thing I like about him, he plays very well inside, uses his hands. Here’s a guy who has a lot of football ahead of him. Right now, I don’t even think he has a driver’s license. He’s from Jamaica, and he’s a young kid that we like. When you get guys in this round, you want guys who can be versatile, and I think he can play either nose or end. We’ll start him off where he likes to line up.

Cameron Stephenson (OG)
6-3, 306, Rutgers (5th, 156th)
Stephenson found a home at right guard as a senior…began his career as a defensive tackle at Los Angeles Harbor College, but shifted to offensive tackle when he transferred to Rutgers in 2004…shifted back to the defensive line in 2005 for the Scarlet Knights, but after that season he returned to the offensive line. 2006: Started at right guard…was a second-team All-BIG EAST selection...allowed one sack…helped the Scarlet Knights average 180.2 yards per game on the ground. 2005: Played in all 12 games at defensive tackle…recorded 10 tackles (two solos) with a sack, two stops for losses and a fumble recovery...had one tackle for a loss and a fumble recovery in RU’s 37-29 victory over Pittsburgh. 2004: Played in seven-of-11 games on the offensive line…made his first career start at left tackle vs. Temple (10/16). Junior College: Spent the 2002-03 seasons at Los Angeles Harbor College…started at defensive tackle for the Seahawks in 2002, earning All-South Coast Conference second-team and all-state honors…was scheduled to start on both sides of the ball in 2003, but hurt his knee in the season opener and missed the rest of the season.

Offensive Line Coach Larry Zierlein

I really liked him when I saw him on tape and when I met him down at the combine. He is a guy who is not a flashy guy, but he just does everything well. Usually when you look at a guy, you see something you don’t like about him, even though he may be a good player. This kid right here, you just really don’t see anything blaring that you don’t like about him. He is steady. He is not flashy. He has really good strength. He understands how to play the game. I just think he is one of those guys, whose personality is very mature.


William Gay (CB)

5-10, 190, Louisville (5th, 170th)
Gay played in 46 games, making 36 starts…was a veteran leader in the defensive backfield. 2006: Selected first-team All-BIG EAST Conference... finished second on the team in tackles with 60...led the team with six interceptions…also had 13 pass break ups. 2005: Started nine games...recorded 20 total tackles. 2004: Started 11 games at cornerback...recorded 21 tackles and four pass breakups. 2003: Named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team...appeared in 11 games, earning three starts at cornerback...recorded 33 tackles and led the team with eight passes defensed...made his first collegiate start against Memphis.


Defensive Backs Coach Ray Horton
William Gay is 5-10, 190, and I compare him to Deshea Townsend. He’s instinctual, aggressive and has very good hands. I think that he’ll come in right away and compete for a third cornerback spot, a fourth cornerback spot and special teams. I think that this is a young Deshea that can come in and probably apply himself right away with his mental capacity to learn. I was very impressed with this young man on the phone as far as explaining his position and what the defensive linemen do on particular plays. So, I’m very excited about this young man.


Dallas Baker (WR)
6-3, 206, Florida (7th, 227th)
Baker played in 51 games with 26 starts…completed his Florida career with 151 catches for 2,236 yards and 21 touchdowns, ninth on the school's career list. 2006: Was a first-team All-SEC recipient…played in all 14 games, with 12 starts…led the Gators with 920 yards receiving on a career-high 60 receptions (15.3 avg.) and had a team-best 10 touchdowns…his 10 receiving scores were a single-season career high. 2005: Played in all 12 games with 11 starts…ranked second on the team with 52 catches for 697 yards and averaged 13.4 yards per reception…caught five TD passes to rank second on the team. 2004: Played in all 12 games with three starts…caught 26 passes for 410 yards (15.8 avg.) and five TDs. 2003: Played in all 13 games…had 13 receptions for 209 yards (16.1 avg.) and a touchdown. 2002: Was a member of Florida’s scout team. Junior College: Attended Northfield Mt. Hermon School in Massachusetts in 2001...caught 32 passes for 916 yards (28.6 avg.) and 13 touchdowns.

Director of Football Operations Kevin Colbert
With our seventh pick, we took Dallas Baker, wide receiver from the University of Florida. One thing we really liked about Dallas was his touchdown productivity and his size. We have a pretty good receiving group, but it’s not the biggest group. He has good productivity, and we thought he was a good addition at that point.

The Pittsburgh Steelers kicked off their 75th anniversary on Friday, and they unveiled their new mascot, a steelworker.

But he doesn’t have a name just yet.

The mascot is a steelworker and has a hard hat, overalls, and boots.

NEWS9 wanted to know what people in the Ohio Valley thought of the new guy, so we gave them a look on Friday night.

Some people seemed to be fans.

“"I like it,” said Danny Craig of Weirton. “It looks pretty good to me."

"He's pretty cool,” said James Rusnak, of Steubenville. “I like him."

Others told NEWS9 that he wasn’t the best choice.

“I'm a big Steelers fan,” said Dan McCain, “I really don't like it. It just didn't catch my eye."

NEWS9 crews also asked local steelworkers what they thought of the mascot.

"Yeah, he looks like a steelworker,” said Bill Aftanas. “I'll go with that."

"It's cute,” said former steelworker John Furdea, of Weirton.

The new mascot isn’t complete yet because he still needs a name.

Some of the ideas that local people told NEWS 9 included: Iron Man, Coal Miner Joe, Iron Mike.

The team is asking the public to help them name the mascot.

I think we will go either 12-4 or 13-3 and I'm glad they are gonna get Heath involved more they need to stregnth he could be the next Shockey if not better, he has great hands, and he gets yards after the catch. And I was kinda hopin that the steelers would trade up and get Dwayne Jarret, I honestly think they thought he was gonna be there for them and if he was he would be a steeler instead of a panther but its iight.
