    Shamarko Thomas...they had a 3rd Rd grade on him.

    Steelers would have been forced to draft a WR early in the draft though.
    Steelers Draft 2015
    Rd 1: Devante Parker - WR/ Kevin Johnson - CB
    Rd 2: Danielle Hunter -OLB
    Rd 3: Steven Nelson - CB
    Rd 4: Derron Smith - S
    Rd 5: Henry Anderson - DE
    Rd 6: Wes Saxton - TE
    Rd 7: Deon Simon - DT

    Perhaps they would have drafted Keenan Allen over Le'Veon Bell in round 2, like I was hoping for.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Bailey from WVU went just one pick later, and he certainly could have been a possibility. Quinton Patton also could have been chosen with the comp selection.

    I read somewhere that the Steelers thought there was a big dropoff from Hopkins to the rest of the WRs, so perhaps they would have taken him (or Patterson) instead of Jones in the first, and addressed linebacker later.

    I noticed Bailey sitting there too after that pick. I think it would have been Sharmarko Thomas.

    It woulda been someone everyone woulda complained about. It's kinda funny how as many as wanted the extra 3rd round pick woulda probably complained about the player we got as a result.

    so in an indirect way, by matching the Patriots* offer to Sanders it cost us next year's #3 draft choice.
