Possible GM candidates

I'd like to hear other opinions on candidates for our new GM. I've been lookin around online and have come up with these 2 guys. Both are young, up-and-coming execs with the Steelers. I'd love to see us build up some stability like the Steelers have through the draft and smart free agent picks. Both these guys were in the running for the KC job (thats where I pulled this from):

1. Ron Hughes (College Scouting Director - Pittsburgh Steelers)

He was the former V.P. Personnel Director of the Detroit Lions and was hired by the Steelers to handle the college scouting duties in 2002. He spent 18 years in Detroit and was credited for helping the Lions compete in the 90s when the team had Barry Sanders and Herman Moore.

Over the last seven years Hughes has been primarily in charge of building the Steelers drafts and was one of the only people in the organization who championed the cause to move up in the first round of the 2003 draft to grab USC safety Troy Polamalu. The team that made that swap was none other then the Kansas City Chiefs, who used that pick to draft Penn State running back Larry Johnson.

2. Doug Whaley (Pro Personnel Director - Pittsburgh Steelers)

He has worked closely with Hughes, and that might be one of the better personnel teams in all of the NFL. Whaley has spent 11 seasons with the Steelers and according to someone close to the team who spoke with Warpaint Illustrated, hed like to move up the NFL food chain. However, a year ago he forwarded an e-mail that didnt exactly warm the hearts of the Steelers and the Commissioners office - it contained immoral photos. So that has been something that has held up his efforts towards obtaining a higher position in the NFL.
