Heard the Steelers got rewarded 3-7th round picks in this years draft...

Nice...three extra 7th rounders for Matt Spaeth, Nick Eason and Keyaron Fox. That's 10 picks overall...1 in each of the first 6 rounds, and then 4 total 7th round picks.

Yea, I just saw it too 240, 246, 248... I wouldn't say this is anything that excites me.

Looks like those extra seventh rounders will be the 240th, 246th, and 248th picks overall.

That's 3 more players that the Steelers get to try out before any other team does. It's always a good thing to get more draft picks no matter what round they are in.

I agree! A draft pick is a draft pick

7th Round Pick > Matt Spaeth

To get anything for him was an accomplishment in itself.

Can't we just pass on those picks and keep the cap room?

Rule of 51. They likely wont matter towards the cap.

I hope they bring in 3 O linemen. You never know if one pops.

This is essentially a jump start on the UPFA process, where the Steelers have traditionally had some decent success.

Here are some 7th rd steeler picks that worked out and had long NFL careers. Not there whole career for the steelers. Also a hope so with Batch. I will take the picks. We can then trade our original 7th rd if need be which is nice. Can you trade comp picks?

232- Baron Batch
241- David Johnson
242- Brett Keisel and his Beard.
228- Kris Brown
242- Carlos Emmons

Kris Brown is a reminder that this might be a chance to take an early shot on competition for Suisham.

I have to think that they replace Suisham this year. I really hope he is not the best we can do at Kicker.

Or a HB/FB to see if he poops.

No, the comp picks themselves are untradeable. But having them in your back pocket might allow you to be able to trade some of your other regular picks to move up and get a guy you want.

I was skimming the site on the commuter train to work. Reading too fast, I thought it said get one who poops...which immediately made me think of Davenport.

It's been too long since we've had dump truck jokes.

I look at as four chances in the 7th round to (hopefully) find one good player. For a team that hardly ever uses free agency, K. Colbert and co. must look at this as a good opportunity to find a couple of gems who will inevitably fall through the cracks. Earn your money, KC.....

This draft has some decent depth especially at DL, OG, and WR. CB isn't too bad either. FBs, Kickers, and punters are decent picks in the seventh round because they are often lower priorities and only the very best are picked before the 6th or 7th rounds. I'm especially interested in some of the late round WR talent.

I think we could see 8 of our 10 picks make this team and the other two end up on the PS. We have a lot of open spots on this roster right now.
