You're a pure and true Steeler fan.
'true' fans claim that every pick is excellent and project hof, probowl , starter as soon as they are drafted. when they dont turn out that way, they change their tune and say you need to give them a few years to develop.
dont believe me, go read the after draft comments
1) First ballot HOF, ROTY
2) All Pro first year, first round talent that fell to us in second
3) Starter for years to come, cant believe he fell
4) Absolute steal of draft, 2nd round grade
5) Back up at first then starter for 10 years
6) Incredible depth and ST demon
7) Amazing value, shoulda went 3 rounds earlier
I have never seen or heard of any Steeler fan proclaiming that every pick is excellent, a budding hall of famer, a future pro bowler and a starter from day one. More like the opposite: Definitive statements are usually made by those bashing the pick. "He's a bum, has no chance to start, will be out of the league next year, what was Tomlin/Colbert/LeBeau thinking, yada, yada, yada."
Sure, I've seen optimism; I've seen hope; I've seen people saying they like the pick, etc., but not extravagant predictions such as you suggest.

I can't trust your opinion on Bryant because of your love for Moye
I hope Moye develops into what you think he can be but I'm willing to wait and see vs declaring him a 3 year project. There is a reason we drafted another big WR and it's probably because we don't have faith in Brown, Moye and maybe Wheaton is in that group as well.
I'm hearing too much love for Bryant from non Steeler fans to believe he will be behind Moye and Brown.
