    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
  2. Peters has better talent than any other CB in the...

    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...
  4. I think Blanchflower and/or Egnew will be able to...

    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...

    Roster evaluation: QB--need a new 3rd stringer
    RB--backup to Bell; I'd make a go a Roy Helu Jr.--can run, catch and block, but not at a bell-cow level. A good breather-guy for Bell that won't cost...

    2015 Steelers

    Lots of talk about lots of other things on this board. I'm gonna talk about my favorite thing, and what the offseason could look like (February 1 version; this will change rapidly as the offseason...
  8. I guess if the Steelers were to average 65...

    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...
  9. SKL, I've been seeing your posts for a few years...

    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...

    I think the Steelers should identify the FA CB they think has shown the best ability to do what a Steelers CB is supposed to do in our scheme, determine if no better options realistically exist in...

    His play, and the fact that most of us agree on his "close proximity to the receiver/ball", begs the question again, would he be better at safety, where he had to turn his back to the QB far less? ...
  12. I've seen Shelton play in 3 games this year and...

    I've seen Shelton play in 3 games this year and watched him quite closely, and he is really good, and could play in any scheme. His hustle, amazing burst, and strength were impressive. To hear the...

    When Williams will go is the question, but there appears to be no question out there from all the things I've seen and read that he is the top TE prospect. So I guess my question is (I'm being...

    Okay. 1 T.Waynes_CB, 2 Q.Rollins-CB, 3 J. Tartt,S, 4 D. Eskridge-S, 5 D. Swann-CB, 6 K. White-CB, 7. R. Therezie-S
    4 CB, 3 S, keep Blake and Shamarko and we'll have a nice young secondary!

    We all love Troy, he has meant a great deal to this organization and the city, and we all can remember at least a couple dozen plays that only Troy could make, but business is business. He has no...

    Watching all the Wild Card games this weekend was like watching the first half-of the season all over again--so many ticky-tacky flags. It seems that the refs and teams had figured things out by the...

    The next Welker is a small, slow 40 (but with quicks) guy with good hands, good route running ability and no fear. Those guys are 6-UDFA guys. Put Antonio Brown in the Combine this year and he'll...

    No expert, and advice is free. Just another guy who has watched football from noon to midnight (or later) the last three weeks. It's easy to sit back and do this now, but the "live" variables on...

    Shawn, I'm a draftnik geek, so the mocks should start once we know where the Steelers pick ( I was hoping 32nd). Nice draft, meets needs, strong group of Steelers-type players. However, right now...

    Ben really didn't look comfortable without Le'veon in there. He held on too long on a few plays when he had time, and had way too much pressure on him at other times. He needed to be great and...

    We can look at a lot of things that may have changed the outcome, but it comes down to what almost always determines the winner between these two team--the more physical team won.

    Pappy, that's spot on. I'm not sure we win the North this year without his play. All 53 have a job to do, and he does his, whether starter, backup or S-Teamer. This Steeler fan has a place for him...

    Broski, I agree. Ball-security will be a big deal this game, and I didn't worry about that with Bell. I think Harris will be our Bell-Cow, and will surprise us all.
  24. The Steeler CB does not need to be great (good...

    The Steeler CB does not need to be great (good thing) if our front 7 can do what the Steelers D-style 3-4 needs them to do--apply consistent pressure. Blake continues to be more assignment-sound with...

    I'd say Polamalu can make the difference, that is if he doesn't play like he's played all year. At this point in his career, he needs to fit in this secondary. The whole secondary, including...
