Does anyone else think that the Steelers are screwing the pooch in this draft? I like Pouncey, we took a project OLB that will play ST in the second and smallish WR in the third.

Kiesel is almost done, Hampton is a two down player, Farrior has lost a step, Gay is abysmal on a good day, Ryan Clark needs Troy and Ike can cover but can't make a play and we draft a project OLB and WR. Hmmm...

I don't like their draft at all and believe it will get a poor grade when they grade the drafts.

Yes! I love the Pouncey pick but really question everything since. I also don't understand why we didn't work to use all those picks to get another third or so. I'll admit I'm a little frustrated.

Agreed. It seems our needs are being addressed weakly or not at all.

From walterfootball.com:


Emmanuel Sanders, SMU
Height: 5-11. Weight: 181.
Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
Combine 40 Time: 4.41.
Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
Vertical: 39.5. Broad: 10-10.
Projected Round (2010): 7-FA. :?: :!: :?: :!: :evil:
1/19/10: A typical June Jones receiver - Emmanuel Sanders had 98 catches for 1,339 yards and seven touchdowns.

2/7/09: Emmanuel Sanders was suspended for the final two games of the year for being late to practice. He was then ordered to take down Plaxico Burress' poster in his dorm room. :wft :HeadBanger It's a shame because Sanders managed 67 receptions, 958 yards and nine touchdowns.

7/26/08: Finished his sophomore campaign with 74 receptions, 889 yards and nine touchdowns. Also averaged more than nine yards per punt return, which is pretty solid.

Was anybody really gung-ho about the Mike Wallace pick after Round #3 last year?

I will keep any skeptic feelings to myself until week #9.

Yea, maybe they really do like Burnett and Lewis?? I hope that is it. Sanders is a very good punt returner so maybe that is the role he fills and we cut Logan? That would give us six WRs (Ward, Wallace, ARE, Battle, Sweed and Sanders). Battle and Sanders would fill a dual role of being on our special teams??

Cant say I would have done it the same way but all the picks are solid football players....no reaches. Would of liked a CB in the 3rd though. Maybe we can trade our 4 and (2) 5ths for a late 3.

I'm alot frustrated.

They drafted a project who best case scenario will be a backup for 2 to 3 years in the friggin 2nd.

Now at WR , they are either giving up on Sweed already or it was a waste bringing in Battle or ARE because they are not keeping 6 wr's.

It seems like they have no plan for this draft at all.

I have to agree with SteelCzar this draft is a train wreck. There was no need for it to be, the second round set up beautifully for an impact player and they took a project. The WR selection is as bizarre as trading Santonio to begin with. That kid won't even make the roster, another disaster in the third round.

Oh well, that's the way this off season has gone. They might as well give the rest of their draft to the Browns; people expect them to screw things up.

He has good numbers, but considering it is in the pass-wacky June Jones run-and-shoot spread, and not a pro-style offense, they don't mean quite as much.


Career Statistics
Year GP REC YDS YPC TD
2005 RS - - - -
2006 12 46 605 13.2 9
2007 12 74 889 12.0 9

2009 13 98 1,339 13.7 7
Totals 47 285 3,791 13.3 34

I really want to trust that the team knows way more about these guys than any of us, but I'm still frustrated (which is unusual for me...most years I am excited about our picks). Hoping for the best for these new Steelers.

Ummm, the WR was a 7th round grade; I'd call that a reach of epic proportions.

They don't work out during visits to team headquarters. Only interview and get a tour. If you want to work a guy out, you have to visit him on his home turf.

Mike Mayock had him as the best available WR on the board when we drafted him....I will take that over Walterfootball.........would of rather had Taylor Price but Sanders is a good player.

At least we didn't give up a second round pick next year to get a QB-to-WR conversion project from Appalachian State. @#$%ing Patriots now have two firsts (including Oakland's) and two seconds (including Carolina's). The Panthers were doing great so far considering they stupidly gave up this year's first for a 2nd round pick last year, because Jimmy Clausen and Brandon LaFell fell into their laps...then they screw it all up by giving away a 2011 second rounder for a late 3rd round pick (and a guy that hasn't played the position he'll play in the pro game).

Mayock may love him and he may be a great WR in the NFL, but we signed WR depth in the off season. What happens if Hampton gets hurt? Kiesel? Smith again? Troy? clark? Ike?

I keep hearing the Steelers are thin at OLB; thy're thin on defense in general and they draft Stefan Logan II in the third.

What an ugly thought it is if Ike gets hurt, Burnett and Gay on the corners?

Please, this draft will only pan out if the Steelers stay healthy in 2010.

Here is what the ESPN "Insiders" had to say about the Sanders pick:


18(82) Pittsburgh Steelers Emmanuel Sanders WR Southern Methodist

What he brings: Sanders is an undersized receiver who projects to play out of the slot. He has great quickness and suddenness getting out of his breaks. In addition, he shows good body control but can have some inconsistency with his hands on balls outside his frame. He should become a strong No. 3 receiver.

How he fits: Trading Santonio Holmes took away the only sure downfield playmaker the Steelers had. Hines Ward is aging and Limas Sweed has yet to produce, while Arnaz Battle and Antwaan Randle El have both had their ups and downs in the NFL. Pittsburgh needed depth here.

They call Santonio the only downfield playmaker we had, failing to mention the superb downfield threat who is expected to start opposite of Hines this year.
