Myron Rolle- Draft Projection Question from Steelers Fan

Hello Seminoles Fans! I'm coming to you from the heart of Steelers Nation with a question about one of FSU's many talented alums. The person of which I speak is none other than Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle. The Steelers failed to reach the playoffs in the 2009 season due to a large number of reasons, most of which will not be discussed here. However, the Steelers' most pressing weakness last year was their secondary. Once Troy got hurt, we were screwed. Our pass D gave away late leads against Chicago, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Baltimore, and Oakland, five of our seven losses(The other two were caused by a horrible offensive effort). Thus, most people have the Steelers going for a DB with the eighteenth selection of the first round. However, this poses some problems for the Black and Gold. The top safety who would be available at 18 is Earl Thomas, who has not had much experience compared to other high draft picks and has significant bust potential. There is only one CB with a first round grade, Joe Haden of Florida. He may not be available when the Steelers pick, and the draft's other CBs are bad value at that slot. That brings me to Rolle. Do you think that he would be available halfway through the second round? Do you think he is worth a mid-first round draft choice? Is he a safe choice? Thank you for your help in this matter; hopefully I will be able to glean a ton of info to share back at Behind the Steel Curtain.

P.S.- Your 200-word minimum idea for fanposts is very interesting.
