    in today's day and age of passing. is it even worth to draft a corner that high?
    no such thing as shut down corner anymore (marshall is the closest probably)

    that guy the cowboys took early 2 years ago gets burnt every week

    Woodley has somewhere around $13-15M still to be pro-rated over three years...he isn't going anywhere in 2014.

    A shutdown corner has to be big and physical, as well as fast.

    Richard Sherman is 6' 3", Morris Claiborne is 5' 11". One is great, the other gets beat regularly as stated above.

    Aqib Talib is 6' 1", Charles Tillman is 6' 2". Ike is 6' 2" and used to shut guys down when he was faster.


    I don't want small athletic corners, not in today's NFL. It has to be a big athletic CB, and if we have a chance at one we should get him and let Lake coach him up.

    Have you seen our O Line lately? I forgot about Pouncey, guess cause he is hurt. Decastro is average but getting better I guess. He was terrible last year and still hasn't added up to the hype of being a first round pick.

    Thats nuts. DeCastro was terrible last year? You mean the year his knee blew up during preseason? Wow. He's playing EXCELLENT football this year in what is essentially his rookie season. These guys tend to agree with me.

    If we don't draft a Left Tackle and use another Round 1 pick on defense we don't deserve to get better. Our OL is among the worst in the entire NFL. Fix that first because we have questionable starters and zero depth.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    +1

    Steelers need a franchise LT. Steelers drafting in Top-10 will give them a chance to draft an elite LT especially with few teams needing QBs.

    We had enough of Rd-2 OT. We know how they play in NFL. A traffic cone will do a better job than some of the OTs Steelers have.
    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

    why do we need to draft a top 10 tackle but other teams find guys in later rounds?

    Maybe our scouting department sucks?? Drafting two Rd-2 RT to play LT?? Or maybe OL coach can't develop talent?

    We don't. We just need to take the best guy available whenever we pick. We need help everywhere.
