    If we are staying with that we need to get players that are better at it. Kemo isn't. Colon isn't.
    This is where I hope Tomlin and Colbert don't put "scheme" ahead of talent. I see a lot of Steelers fans on other boards (not you Oviedo) thinking he doesn't fit our Line saying its a bad pick because he's more of a zone blocker, in other words, he's too good at pass protection. lol let's just bring in another lazy overweight run blocker and let Ben continue to lead the league in sacks since joining the league. I find it hard to believe the Steelers will continue with this approach.

    I agree. Our problems with Ben being on his back were Kemo, Stapleton and Colon all of whom are better run blockers than pass blockers. We will not scale back on the number of pass plays that are called therefore we had better get some OL who can actually pass block well.

    Yup, and with the way Ben plays, a guy like Unger who is use to moving up and down the field in space at Oregon in the spread, although not the "steeler" way in terms of an Offensive Line, he'd fit right in with Roethlisberger. It's time the front office figures this out.

    The "Steelers Way" should be winning. I could care less if it is with a 270lb battering ram RB or a 185lb WR. Once could argue that given the rules the latter is the more effective in the NFL now.

    I'd rather see us go DLine, CB, or WR in the first round.

    Re: #32 overall.

    Can someone list the round and draft order for the Steelers picks? That is, 1.32; 2.64; 3.96; etc.

    Steelers signed DL Jordan Reffett.

    They have S Paxson, Kyle Clement and Jordan Reffett. I don't think Steelers are looking to draft a D-Line in 1st Rd.

    Well, the NFL has not announced the compsatory picks yet, so the second 3rd rounder is not official. But the rest are correct as it stands now...we have the last regular pick in every round, plus Tampa's pick in the middle of the 7th round. The picks in rounds 4-7 will get pushed back a bit once comp picks are announced for all teams at the ends of rounds 3-7, though.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    They were all recent undrafted free agents. They won't make a difference about whether or not we use an early round pick as a potential future replacement for our aging d-lineman.
