    i never want to here we draft PBA again

    this was a terrible reach,
    it didnt cover any of our top 5 needs.
    1) CB D Dennard
    2) OLB R Shazier
    3) DE J Ellis
    4) WR M Bryant
    5a) OG D Yankey
    5b) OLB J Tripp
    6a) RB D Archer
    6b) NT D McCullers
    7) WR J Janis

    Wasn't a reach. Fuller was the target and when he was gone Shazier made sense.
    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!

    God you are a baby. How many times have the steelers missed when they pick high? Jarvis Jones is still developing. I wasn't thrilled with the pick but he's a ridiculous athlete and will play inside next to another ridiculous athlete. They have to love the kid considering the depth in this draft. I don't see it as a reach and we sure as **** aren't paid by the steelers. I'd say they know better than any of us.

    no way you can convince me we needed a 3rd olb to sit the bench behind 2 young guys compared to taking dennard or zach martin

    Squid--it was written here many times. Dennard did not fit how the Steelers ask their CBs to play. He was at his best playing man on man coverage and was not good in zone. The Steelers were likely targeting Fuller who played zone best like the Steelers ask their CBs to do. Once he was gone fixing ILB made perfect sense.

    If we had to go with a LB CJ Mosely would have been a better choice. Now he's a Raven which really blows.

    He'll play ILB next to Timmons. And you can't tell me ILB wasn't a need. Vince Williams? Hell they even brought back Foote since they were so thin at the position.

    With sadness, I agree.

    Mosley has injury concerns and wasn't anywhere the athlete that Shazier is. He was just another Larry Foote...really in Round 1? Who was the last Alabama LB who has done crap in the NFL?

    Yeah, that sucks. Shazier is fast, but looking at his highlights, a lot of his tackles are more catches than hits. He's great when he's unblocked, but I see no evidence of any ability to get off blocks. Shazier and Timmons may have size, but if they don't get a NT to keep them clean, people will run all over this team.

    At least the Steelers didn't rush to the podium, but I think they could have traded down and still gotten Shazier. Or Mosley, a more solid overall linebacker.
