    We saw last yr how bad our pass rush was in week 17 when Worilds went down. We have NO depth behind Worilds. JJ is the only other true OLB left on the roster. Moats is an ILB and him being the #1 backup is scary.

    His high school coach wants him to get a deal with the J.E.T.S. JETS JETS JETS.

    then why are they drafting him so high (mid 2nd round) whenthere are other obvious needs on the team

    The Worilds I just say does have a lot of athleticism, moves and also brings the lumber. But don't sleep on Jones. I think he is gonna have a monster year. This whole team is starting to look stacked.

    At camp he dropped into coverage a bunch of times in live 11 on 11 and wasn't that bad. He can turn his hips good and get down the field for a olb. I think turning the corner is his strength but at least he has some cover skills. No reason to believe he will not be a good player. Imho the question is will be be a pro bowl caliber player?

    It seems we wait so long for guys to develop and then we can't sign them. I don't know, maybe it's my imagination. We have Worilds, Heyward believe to be out of our reach soon in the future. We had Lewis on the team for so long that he became a commodity. If the office wasn't going to allow these players to start until their contracts were up in a year or the last year then, why not just offer them something when we could afford them or trade or cut them. Maybe then we could build for depth or for starters. Maybe they should have worried about keeping players like Legursky , etc ?

    I hope you are right about Jones, but not holding my breath. I still doubt he has the strength to have a consistent inside move and lacks the speed to get around a good LT.

    If JJ can't bring it we have serious problems on the defense because the contact rules as now implemented will leave our secondary helpless. Ben the offense better figure out how to score 30+ points per game.
    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!

    Because drafting for need is a terrible strategy...

    You'll have to ask Colbert, Tomlin, Lebeau, the scouts and Art II, I have no idea, but, IMO, that was clearly the case, he just wasn't the best option and playing him because he's young in front of another young (at the time) player just doesn't seem to be prudent.
