    Unless the Steelers can get Nix by trading down toward the end of the 1st round/early 2nd round, they'd be better off waiting to take one of the next best NT prospects.

    So by that logic, drafting a third receiver would perpetuate the dramatic drop off in run defense and inability to put the opposing offense in third and long situations.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    Nix is not worth the #15 pick when it means potentially passing on players like Gilbert, Mosley, Dennard, Evans, Ebron, Marquise Lee, Anthony Barr, etc. All are better than Nix. We can get another NT later in Round 3 or 4.
    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!

    Absolutely agree. IMO, this is currently the largest hole in the defense. Opposite Timmons, we have a bunch of capable backups but no true starter.

    We don't know that. We don't know how much improved VW is and whether Spence is healthy. We don't know how the Steelers think about Garvin but I say he has a lot of potential considering he saw playing time last year.

    On defense, I'd prefer Gilbert or Dennard and possibly even Anthony Barr if Worilds doesn't sign a long term deal by the draft.
