    Diggy was my favorite edge-guy coming into this draft, and I see the urge to pile up on edge-rushers if one of these guys drops to us, but I think BPA often takes a backseat (even for the Steelers)...

    True. No one knows for sure what position Rowe will play(CB or FS). Can't take guy like that in the 1st, but a guy that may work at either position, both of which we need, in the 2nd, awesome. I...

    Yeah, I really think OO is a great fit with the Steelers--imagine getting him and one of the top 3 CBs? That would be a real coup.

    PJ Williams also seems to not fit our scheme (or at least what our scheme was under LeBeau), in that he seems really good at man but not at other schemes. I don't see the Steelers becoming a...

    Yeah, but I've noticed that a lot of the pre-draft buzz from the talking heads through the years and a lot of the pre-draft visits the Steelers have often had no relationship to who the Steelers have...

    LOL, thought I'd at least get a little discussion about the idea (that was the idea), not just a bunch of resounding "no's". Rough crowd!:p
    I think next year's draft looks about the same as this...

    Do you pull the trigger?

    I've said before on this board that I would probably be a little more aggressive in the next few years than the Steelers generally are, hoping to cash in with another SB before our franchise QB gets...

    I like this draft, but I think you start it with two players that make a lot of people nervous. Dupree is a superb athlete with great size, but the knock on him I keep seeing from multiple draft...

    Chance we take. Maybe Peters, or Collins, O.O. or Harold are available if Johnson is gone. BPA at 22 will likely be one of the OL; do we really take an OL with such glaring needs on D? Personally,...

    I think this is spot on. If the Steelers really are focusing a CB in the 1st, I think Waynes, Peters, Collins and Johnson are the only names in the hat. The depth at CB is impressive in this...

    Except for Jones in the first, I'd be okay with that draft. Jones rise has been meteoric for a number of reasons. Because of his actual performance on the field, he started on the majority of the...

    Od. His size and strength are impressive, reminding me of Woodley at his best. The guy on that side needs to have that size/strength combo to take on the fat slow OT when they engage. Woodley used...

    Yeah, I somehow missed that Ayers got picked up. I was just getting creative. There's always excitement surrounding that 1st rounder, and sometimes it seems like a proven vet with 3-4 years left on...

    I think 22 will be a hard spot. I think Dupree (who I'm not sold on--don't like those athletes whose instincts are questioned) will gone, along with the other 4top OLBs, L. Collins will be gone,...

    I'd like to see the Steelers try to make something happen with New Orleans for Lewis, a solid #1 CB with a reasonable contract to pick up. I could see pressing them to get Lewis and their pick at 31...

    After the Combine, here's my take (one straight up, one with a twist):

    1 J. Collins-CB
    2 D. Smith-FS
    3 J. Heuerman-TE
    4 S. Nelson-CB
    5 S. Hickey-OT/OG
    6 L. Walton-DL
    7 T. Davis-WR

    Peters has better talent than any other CB in the draft, but I think he'd really have to impress the Steelers during the interview process to be anything other than 2nd rounder to them. Same for...

    Blanchflower & Egnew could find a spot, but after M. Williams I think the other TE's are 4th or 5th round talent, with Heurmann or Koyack having the most upside. Maybe in two years Heurmann or...

    I think Blanchflower and/or Egnew will be able to step up as young guys and fill at least one vacant TE slot. Given the choice between Spaeth and Palmer, I'd keep Spaeth because his blocking this...

    So, now the draft. Say we acquire Helu and Sheard in FA, so our needs are more focused. The 2015 draft, which many thought might be weak back 6 months ago, now seems strong in rounds 2-5. Top...

    2015 Steelers

    I guess if the Steelers were to average 65 offensive snaps per game, I would have Bell on the field for 45 of those,with around 20 carries, 8 targets. Unless my 5th receiver has some really good ST...

    SKL, I've been seeing your posts for a few years and it is almost scary how you often target the same FA's that I do. Helu would be a perfect backup to Bell--he runs and catches the ball well, and...
