    I would have prefered Steelers drafting Tyler Bray in 7th Rd over Landry Jones in 4th.

    And no i am not a fan of Tyler Bray.
    Steelers Draft
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    I think this pick was more about Bens development. He is now a mentor to a young guy with potential and no immediate threat. Apparently their wives used to be close and He is also a New Mexico kid, I like the pick.

    sorry, but that position is laughable

    OL, FS, MLB, CB, any of these positions would have made much more sense. You can find some bum on the waiver wire that can do the job landry jones can. I guess ben needs a buddy in the QB room.

    hated the pick then, hate the pick now
    I agree. Like Bradshaw and Ruthless have stated, I also would have absolutely jumped on the safety Philip Thomas. Heck I liked Thomas in the 2nd, though I'm lovin LeVeon Bell. I would have taken a flier on the Vandy QB in the 7th.
