    Below is a list from Dale Lolley's blog. With the Steelers showing almost no interest in TEs, I'd be shocked if Ebron was the guy. Not surprisingly, there has been a focus on corners, linebackers,...

    I've seen discussion of Tuitt falling (Walters Football has the Steelers taking him in the second, FWIW). Kiper also has Louis Nix falling to the second. I'd be happy if any of Tuitt, Nix or...

    Aside from Mendenhall and Ziggy Hood, the Steelers have still been generally hitting on their first rounders. The problem is that they are not pulling as many starters out of the middle rounds as...

    This is a deep draft all around. It really depends on how the board falls. I'd be ok with another athletic, project corner (like the kid out of Lindenwold) in the 3rd/4th, or with some of the 3-4...

    There are plenty of college QBs with NCAA stats that don't translate well in the NFL, regardless of round. I don't see how Jones was a good value at all. After Jones, there was not another QB taken...

    Obviously, nobody is or should be counting on anything from a 7th round pick who hasn't played. When Williams was drafted, the Steelers acknowledged that he was very raw and would likely need a year...

    Jones did 20 reps on the bench. For a comparison, Warren Sapp did 17.

    Actually, I think this is all on Jones. He showed nothing, and likely would have been cut if not for his draft status.

    I have no problem with the idea of developing a long term backup. ...

    This article ignores a lot of the Steelers other needs, namely, WR. They have credible bodies at the position, but no long term plan as the #2 WR, unless you are counting on Wheaton. I think WR...

    Yeah, it does. I like Jones, and I think that he'll end up being a very good OLB, but I think that you need at least one OLB who has an effective bull rush.

    The concern that I have with Barr is that you don't see much of a bull rush. His pass rush seems to be predominantly based on beating the tackle outside.

    I think I'd be ok with him at 15,...

    I'd be quite pleased with that. He has the prototypical size that the Steelers look for in a 3-4 DE.

    Podlesh is a slight upgrade over McBriar. Last year, he had a net of about 3 yards better.

    While the Steelers continue the game of musical punters, it is a shame to think back on that offer...

    It's the same in any cold weather climate. People aren't clamoring to pay over face value for a game that doesn't have playoff implications when it's freezing cold. Two years ago (when they had an...

    I think that Pouncey is overrated, but I also think that the degree to which he is overrated is vastly overstated on this board. He doesn't have the pure strength of some centers, but he has really...

    I would take Matthews and not look back. Let Adams and Gilbert fight it out at RT and Beachum fill a super-sub role.

    To even consider a trade down when there is a blue chip LT on the board, you'd...

    I like Desir or Baptiste a bit more than I like Dennard (in terms of value, not ability). The Steelers have shown that they can develop raw, athletic corners, and in the case of Allen, he was...

    Actually, you are a buffoon. The waiting list for season tickets is quite real. Tickets purchased in the secondary market are a different story.
