    Scary thing is he was the FOURTH best QB in preseason.
    Can a guy YOU KNEW was gonna be third string be a bust?

    scary thing is we wasted a 4th on a 3rd string QB and some fans still defend the selection

    laughable

    The way we're playing, I wouldn't be all that surprised if we end up with an even higher pick.
    Personally my first round board goes as such,... OLB Anthony Barr, WR Mike Evans and NT Louis Nix. Realistically, we probably land Nix. However that is still a considerable win for us as Nix will more than likely go on to be one of the best in the league at his position. A position that just so happens to one of need for us in particular.

    I'd take Barr in a heartbeat if he's there. And I'd be happy if we came away with Nix. I was really hoping Star was gonna fall to us last draft. I've always wondered if we woulda taken him over JJ if they both fell to us?

    I liked lotulelei as well Flip, would have been a great fit. But something tells me the Tomlin/Colbert connection seemed bent on Jones so as to save face and or justify letting James walk ?

    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.

    I'm rooting for a Top 10 pick because that is Top 10 in every round not just the 1st. We have lots of holes, but MUST start with a Left Tackle.
    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!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB

    Fair enough Oviedo,...start in the trenches when building or rebuilding. However,...say we go OT and the defense which has been our strength for years while our Roethlisberger led offenses put up numbers yet consistently failed to score points,....would enter another season with no real help to improve in terms of personnel.

    We are in bad shape after wasting draft after draft and something has to give,....do we er on the side of the log jam of O lineman that we currently have getting healthy and the offense being able to be relatively sound ? And then address the traditional heart and soul of this organization,...the defense ?

    Or do we keep drafting O-lineman and allow the Defense to get progressively worse ?

    We used a 1st Round pick on an OLB this year who isn't good enough yet to play. Left Tackle is the #1 need on this team probably followed by a Nose Tackle if we remain stuck with the same defense.

    I would probably go:

    1) LT
    2) ILB or NT
    3) Safety
