Thanks FloBro -- looks like JCM has made the necessary adjustments, and the final draft pick list is correct. Note to everyone -- CB Sam Shields is still available for the UDFA round.

Speaking of the UDFA round -- it's now off and running, get those picks in (see new thread for details)

With their second round pick (#52 overall), the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech



Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 229 pounds
Career stats: 120 catches, 2339 yards, 14 touchdowns

Overview:
Thomas has rare measurables for the wide receiver position and will be a very attractive gamble for some team after the first round. He shows excellent vertical speed, especially for someone his size, and can be intimidating to a cornerback when isolated on the perimeter. He has the size of a tight end with the speed, agility and ball skills of a wide receiver. He needs a lot of work on his route running skills as he tends to round off his breaks and will telegraph his routes with too much upper body movement. He can make acrobatic type catches but will drop some very catchable passes due to lapses in concentration. He is not a very physical blocker on the edge in spite of his massive size advantage. In a recent workout, Thomas broke his foot and will be unable to participate in combine drills.

Strengths:
Possesses elite size and physicality for the receiver position. Has good top-end speed. Has been productive in a system not overly friendly to receivers. Really good catching the ball in a crowd. Will rise up above defenders and shield players with his large frame. Exhibits natural hands and consistently catches the ball away from his body.

Weaknesses:
Thomas runs sloppy routes and is raw with his route-running in general. Needs to be more consistent with his concentration on the ball. Blocking must improve at the next level, which is tough to swallow given his size. Can make strides in this area due to natural measurables. In a recent workout, Thomas broke his foot and will be unable to participate in combine drills.

Pro Comparisons: Brandon Marshall, Terrell Owens



Pick made at:
11:30 a.m. Abu Dhabi time
2:21 a.m. Eastern
1:21 a.m. Central
12:21 a.m. Mountain
11:21 p.m. Pacific
10:21 p.m. Alaskan

eddie mac and the New England Patriots are now on the clock.
How you like my 2nd round pick (52 overall) now? BOO-YAH!

Nice work, Bowlen. You and Med have gotten a lot of gems over the years.

How are your guys from this past year doing? Casey Hayward was my steal.
