    9th Pick in Draft

    Currently we'd have the #9 pick in the draft. Wonder who we could realistically get?

    The way we're playing, I wouldn't be all that surprised if we end up with an even higher pick.

    We play Cin., GB, and Cle. We could lose all 3 or at best win 2...I see us finishing 6-10. We will pick 8th overall.

    I hope we get a OT or a shut down corner. Jake Matthews would be great, but I doubt he makes it out of the top 5.

    Definitely looking at a top 10 pick. As far as a position that we could realistically draft, there are so many needs... my first thought is Left Tackle, but I am really curious to see what happens in the off season with the Offensive Linemen who are currently there... Velasco and Levi Brown in particular. I know Brown was a high 1st round pick. Is he the type of guy that could blossom late in his career (like a Max Starks)? I'm sure the talent is there.

    I like Kelvin Beachum. The guy is not flashy, but has become a solid/versatile player for us. I think he is a much better prospect at LT than either Adams or Gilbert. As bad as the O-Line was early, I think they had improved tremendously (up until the injuries).

    At a glance, the next position would appear to be ILB, but that could largely depend on Shawn Spence. He was very close to being activated this season, so I would assume he is going to be close to 100% in the summer. I am rooting for this guy big time.

    You could look at any number of positions I guess, and it very well my come down to best player available. Would love to find a 6'5" receiver (like the kid from Texas A&M).. but I think we have bigger needs at this point.

    There was a report today that said that "sources" in the NFL said that we will.

    NFL Network had a report out that we're losing one.

    Maybe that is wishful thinking for you, but will never happen. The Rooney's are smart enough to know they have a good coach and want to keep him.
    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!

    The pick we "may" lose will be a late round pick according to sources
