Thread: 9th Pick in Draft

That will potentially save them from reacting versus the course they are now on. QB is the most important position in the NFL nowadays and we got at best a solid starter and at worst a good #2 for a less than premium pick. If you were honest you would have to recognize that as value if you put aside your agendas.

    You are right though that some want to portray getting an unnamed player with that 4th round pick would have somehow added 3-4 wins this year or next.
    Well said. I still think Jones was a steal in the 4th.

    1) ERIC EBRON TE/ MIKE EVANS WR
    2) JORDAN MATHEWS WR/ SEFERIAN-JENKINS TE

    seems the blowhards want it both ways. They decry the lack of talent at multiple positions, but defend a 3rd string backup QB.

    keep your mouths shut come april.

    Every team in the NFL had almost every draft pick ranked lower than where we picked them...that argument makes no sense...every NFL team also had a bunch of 49ers draft picks ranked lower that where the 49ers selected....

    Blowhards...lol. Its called people with an opinion other than yourself. You do realize the Steelers are one injury from losing their franchise QB, right? You do realize he isn't a spring chicken right? So, when a second round talent drops to the fourth then its a reasonable move to draft him.

    However with that said, i think Jones could pan out when and if he becomes more comfortable and plays with a great deal more aggression.
    Nix is a good player. But, he is not much of a pass rusher, and he has ended both of the last seasons with injuries. It is hard to take a DL in the top ten who does not get after the QB in today's NFL.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    I don't have a problem with Jones in the 4th. We needed to get younger there & the reason that pick gets criticized is hindsight after injuries. He may develop into a very good #2 but he certainly has the physical skills to become a good starter. His ceiling is in question from the neck up.
    1st (T-D) Kelvin Benjamin WR
    2nd Bradley Roby CB
    3a Kareem Martin DE
    3b C.J. Fiedorowicz TE
    4th Christian Jones LB
    5a Dri Archer RB
    5b Kevin Pierre-Louis LB
    6a Beau Allen NT
    6b Shaquille Richardson CB
    7th John Brown WR

    you are the main one blowing...

    win or lose you sound miserable...

    all you do is complain about the same thing over and over and over again. You hate the QB pick last year... we got it the 50th time you typed it.
