    It doesn't matter if YOU said it or not; fact is, this team does it all the time and you know it. How many times have we taken college DEs and made them switch to OLB? And it's like a science project every time.

    When did we do that with CBs?

    Beats, chill dude...I haven't been complaining since Thursday and I'm already over the Shazier pick. Could Shazier could be a really good linebacker next to Timmons. Just really hoping he becomes as good as Bowman.

    Anyways, the only pick I am still confused about is the Dri Archer pick...besides that, I love every pick!
    Round 1, Pick 15 (15)- Ryan Shazier, ILB; Ohio State
    Round 2, Pick 14 (46)- Stephon Tuitt, DE; Notre Dame
    Round 3b, Pick 33 (97)- Dri Archer, RB; Kent State
    Round 4, Pick 18 (118 )- Martavis Bryant, WR; Clemson
    Round 5, Pick 17 (157)- Shaquille Richardson, CB; Arizona
    Round 5b, Pick 33 (173)- Wesley Johnson, OT; Vanderbilt
    Round 6, Pick 16 (192)- Jordan Zumwalt, OLB; UCLA
    Round 6b, Pick 39 (215)- Daniel McCullers, DT; Tennessee
    Round 7, Pick 15 (230)- Rob Branchflower, TE; Massachusetts

    OK, let's look at the CBs on our roster.

    Cortez Allen - seems solid. Not bad.
    Ike Taylor - sh-t the bed last year, most likely will retire after 2014. Draw flags every game.
    Antwon Blake - a nobody.
    William Gay - I thought he played decent last year, but he is not a legit starting NFL CB.
    Isiah Green - horrible
    Brice McCain - who?

    That's the CB unit that the Steelers didn't feel needed bolstered in the draft? Good God we are in sad shape.

    I'm with you except for Willey Gay. He's legit.

    do you really need 1st rounder to 'tackle the catch'

    they really dont ask the corners to play tight and stop the pass from being completed.

    as long as they have this system in place, there's really no need to draft corners high.

    just like there's DE's in the past. why draft guys high to occupy blockers? although thats changed in the last few years

    A strong front seven and competent "tackle the catch" CBs worked for both teams...

    I really hope this is a hit. We will be depressed we didn't take Dennard for a decade.
