    pre-draft position outlook

    https://steelersdepot.com/2019/04/steelers-pre-draft-positional-outlook/

    good article, but don't agree with everything

    intresting tidbits:

    1) They also sent TE coach James Daniel to Iowa’s Pro Day and apparently they are very interested in Noah Fant.

    2) the Steelers are making it clear that they want a guy who can play outside and move around too. All these guys have the ability to play outside and still shift inside as well. The Steelers are making it known — receiver will be addressed early.

    3) dl-The Steelers might be looking at this a bit earlier than we thought initially.

    4) the Steelers seem bent on making the necessary pick to fix their Mack ILB spot and give this team some athleticism in the middle, but it seems they simply will not reach if the value isn’t there.
    “I’m so tired of Le’Veon," DeCastro told reporters (h/t ESPN's Jeremy Fowler ([url]https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/1038909446146203649[/url])) after Sunday's game. "I’m so tired of it. Let’s just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love Le’Veon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. They’re the only people that matter to me."

    Thanks George.
    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.

    It all adds up to us standing pat and not trading up

    we could use one draft choice on each of the following positions: (in no particular order)

    WR
    TE
    RB
    OL
    DL
    ILB
    OLB
    CB
    S

    that's 9, leaving us room to double dip at one of those positions...

    If we draft fant in the first (maybe the most overrated TE in recent memory) I will lose my mind.

    Fant had a great Combine, running a 4.50 forty at 249 lbs is pretty impressive.
