The Steelers do not need a nose tackle. McLendon is a good one. Do you only look at stats and PFF Ratings? 3-4 NTs are not SUPPOSED to have gaudy numbers. They are supposed to plug the gap and are a main key to a good run defense in the 3-4. The Steelers had one of the best rushing defenses in the NFL. I honestly wonder how you have a job sometimes.
Summary: DeMarcus Love took his lumps at the Senior Bowl. It is a plus that he has previous experience at guard before moving to left tackle under a new head coach and offensive system. He also played both sides. However, it looks like he might be heading back inside as a pro. Versatility is still a coveted trait in the NFL and he should be able to contribute at guard or tackle on the right side.
Player Comparison: Robert Gallery. Comparisons are always tough, but let me explain this one. Gallery had high expectations and had people talking about him being a left tackle for "the next 10 years." How many times do we hear that in draft circles? Love's hype fell off prior to the actual draft so he will not go No. 2 overall as Gallery did, but moving to guard, he could thrive in that spot as Gallery has.
