    Draft crushes

    I think i found my draft crushes here and they are all from Iowa... Go figure !

    S-Amari Hooker.... he can play 5 positions ( LB/S/CB) on D annd was DB player of the year in the big 10

    Fant....TE who is really a WR2 super athlete

    Hockenson... TE who is a Heath clone, strong blocker and precise route runner, posts better stats than Kittle.


    I would seriously consider taking either TE with our first pick, and a LB or CB in the 2nd and Hooker in the 3rd.

Letís just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love LeíVeon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. Theyíre the only people that matter to me."

    Woah Cowboy!! A TE with our first pick @ #20?? I personally couldn't pull that trigger but I can see why your so excited.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (8 years after Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    TE (https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2019/1/21/18162878/breaking-down-the-steelers-team-needs-part-7-tight-end-vance-mcdonald-nfl-draft-2019-news) Noah Fant, Iowa. 6'4", 232 lbs. The unanimous #1 TE in the draft and "one of the most freakish athletes in all of college football (https://thedraftnetwork.com/2018/08/02/2019-nfl-draft-player-profile-noah-fant/)," Noah Fant may be that rare offensive talent who could tempt the well armed Steelers to spend a Round 1 pick on that side of the ball. McDonald's health has just been too fragile to make him reliable and Fant's extraordinary receiving talents would make him useful for two-TE sets even when the #1 guy is healthy. Fant is also a decent blocker despite being built like an oversized receiver; willing enough, and able to truly help by taking a good angle and not being overwhelmed. This goes to a superb Draft Network article comparing Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson (https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/01/29/draft-class-heroes-dispelling-iowa-tight-end-narratives/).

    TE (https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2019/1/21/18162878/breaking-down-the-steelers-team-needs-part-7-tight-end-vance-mcdonald-nfl-draft-2019-news) T.J. Hockenson, Iowa. 6'5", 243 lbs. What is the HV for a prospect with an 80% chance to grow into the next Heath Miller (https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/1620/heath-miller)? That is Hockenson. The similarities are uncanny, from height, weight, speed, hands and athletic profile to blocking skills, playing style, attitude, competitive edge, and more. The other top TE prospect this year is Hockenson's teammate Noah Fant. Fant is a fully qualified WR2 who blocks far better than even a Hines Ward (https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/1642/hines-ward) or a Juju. Hockenson is more of a WR3 but he blocks like a backup O-Lineman. The Draft Network scouting profiles (https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/01/16/2019-nfl-draft-player-profile-t-j-hockenson/) catch the essence of what everyone seems to agree on. We can translate it this way: He just screams ‘Steelers'. If only he played some other position... This goes to a superb Draft Network article comparing Noah Fant and T.J.

    Not too sure about FANT but if HOCKENSON is there I'd pull the trigger.
    I really think BUSH moved up and the Steelers aren't going to trade up for him and sigend BARRON - BAKER is also intriguing

    Id be thrilled with Hockensen at #20. I'd be happy with Fant at #20 if Bush was gone.

    I have a feeling Fant will be a bigger impact player than Hockensen but the latter will be a solid all round player like Miller

    Seems like Bush is getting the biggest man crush around here.

    You can tell majority of posters live in the Big Ten area and watch those games on Saturdays.

    Noah Fant...Dude would probably be the fastest TE, in the whole league...And he's #250, it's not like he's some #235 TE...

    McDonald is fast and physical ( injuries are his problem ) but him and Fant together, whoa...They could really scheme some thingd out of the 2 TE sets...

    And think thdy have been looking for this type of TE in the new NFL...They hoped Ladarius Green was that guy...This guy is even faster!
