Thread: Steelers Continue to Check Out Late First Rounders

    Either way the Steelers win and get great value and a great player or they get an extra pick or two in a deep draft. I think the Steelers win big in this draft.

    I hear what you are saying WRT scenario #2, but #15 is not a spot that any team would need to climb to without somewhat of a frenzy. Who are the teams who might look to move up to grab one of the last guys?

    #18 Jets now have a young first rounder and a vet to hold the spot down.
    #19 Dolphins seem happy with Tannehill
    #20 Cards big time candidate
    #26 Cleveland another possibility

    So if Cleveland wants to move past Arizona, they have 4 calls to make before the phone rings on the Steelers table. The best case scenario is that Arizona catches wind of these dealings and then has to jump ahead of wherever Cleveland wants to go. Not out of the question, but a lot of dominoes must fall into place before the last one gets knocked down.

    It would seem that they're only doing their draft homework based on a number of possible possibly creating a smokescreen or two while they're at it.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    I would hope Kyle Fuller's in play if they indeed get a partner for a trade down. Don't think he's been in for a visit, but I may have missed it.

    I'd be quite pleased with that. He has the prototypical size that the Steelers look for in a 3-4 DE.
