    Steelers 1.17 becoming obvious

    Looking at the offense and the lack of play makers and TD scorers the pick at 1.17 becomes obvious. I'm sure the Steelers would love to pick Tavon Austin. Too bad he won't be there. However the next man up without any major issues or concerns is Tyler Eifert. It's not real sexy but it fills a huge need for now with Heath out and for the future. I like it.

    I could see them picking worse. If they get TE in the 1st, hopefully they will spend the bulk of the next 3-4 picks on Defense and RB.

    It is certainly obvious that this board was sorely in need of yet another Eifert thread.


    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    1.15 Georgia ILB Roquan Smith 6'0" 225
    2.60 Stanford FS Justin Reid 6'1" 204

    I know there is usually a guy the board locks in on, but I can't remember anyone getting more threads than eifert.

    I thin Crash had 15,000 posts about Antonio Bryant. Not complain, I liked him to being a Pitt kid.

    In the pre board days, I remember everyone used to talk about wanting Dan Marino. That was the talk of the town.

    I also remember a lot of people thinking the Steelers were crazy for letting Curtis Martin slip so far. Not sure if that was before the boards or not.

    I think the last guy people talked this much about was Matt Jones.

    Maybe his biggest fan should start an "Official Draft Tyler Eifert or Bust Thread" and everyone can repeat the same stuff over and over in the thread. They can call it whatever they want, just make sure it starts with the word Official.

    Wait I'm not trying to encourage another thread

    The only thing obvious about the 17th pick is that there will be one.


    This is one of the harder projections for the Steelers that Chadman has seen. Drafting Eifert, however, seems out of character for the Steelers as they tend to use early draft picks on players that will sit behind an older vet or a guy they plan on moving on within a couple of seasons. Despite Miller's serious injury, at 31 & coming off his best season in the NFL, he's neither an aged vet or moving on any time soon.

    Which positions will the Steelers need to replace within the next couple of seasons?

    CB, SS, FS, ILB.... WR, OG perhaps?
