    I suppose we have to see what the Steelers do in FA after this point.
    I do believe they're going all in on winning 1 more with #7.

    Every position (except S) on defense is a need including DL.
    interesting thought of a DL player in the 1st. Possible if a stud drops. Is this draft said to be 1st rd heavy in DL or deep at DL?

    Steelers signed ILB Mark Barron, formerly of the Rams, to a two-year, $12 million contract.
    The Rams initially released Barron in early March with the idea they could re-sign him in the open market. He'll instead play behind Vince Williams in the middle of DC Keith Butler's modified version of the 4-3 defense. 30 in October, Barron's play plummeted last season and will need to be much better if he expects to compete for reps ahead of ILB Jon Bostic.

    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of 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.

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    I was surprised to hear he's been a liability. You would think he would dominate behind a line consisting of Suh and Donald.

    With that said,a lot of people on this board had a love fest with him coming out of college.
    After seeing that his play was subpar last year, this guy might not make it through camp.

    Shouldn't change. I'm all in for either one of the Devin's.

    The draft is loaded with DL talent. If a player like Ed Oliver falls to us, you take him regardless of needs.
    Tomlin: Let's unleash hell and "mop the floor" with the competition.

    not really, which is why he lasted to us.

    Oliver otoh, won't get anywhere near #20. DL are valued much higher than guards...

    Barron was also rated 2nd highest on the Rams Defense in the SB.
