    Don't agree with this at all. Scrubs that haven't developed here, haven't developed elsewhere. In my view, the Steelers lack talent evaluation in the secondary. If Lake is a part of that, then yes,...

    I am of the mindset that the Steelers have missed on talent evaluation not talent development. The proof is that players that don't pan out in Pittsburgh, have by-and-large not worked out elsewhere...

    Cinci's picks shouldn't surprise. If you had to build a defense to stop the current Steelers offense, where would you focus talent? Given the Steelers OL talent and the QB, it would be tough to get...

    If you don't select a DB in the first or second round, you may as well wait until the 7th rd to grab one. Chance of success is about the same as all of the middle rounds.

    At the very least it says the odds were against the Steelers in finding a gem among the detritus.

    If he is even 80% the CB Ike was then it was a steal. Ike was basically a shut-down ironman CB for the better part of his career. Pretty impressive when the average CB lasts just over 3 yrs in the...
