Thread: Steelers select ILB Devin Bush in first round

    you know Gerry Dulac in his draft chat today said something interesting that explains moving (I am fine with it btw...the guy was considered a top 8 by ESPN and we got him at 10 and moved up 10 spots to get him and only lost a 2nd this year.

    The question was basically do you think the Steelers need to be more aggressive given been has 3 years left? I am not quoting that verbatim mind you...but that was the gist.

    Dulac agreed with that question that yes they do have to act more aggressively given the window they have and the SB quality level of talent on this roster.

    Now you can critique whether or not the level of talent is SB level...but that I get the need to be aggressive and take care of that ILB position.

    So I think they are keeping in mind that Ben is on the final drive and they need to be aggressive without selling out the future.

    And given that they still have 8 picks and will likely get a 3rd for Lev Bell next year. They did not give up the farm to get this guy.

    If it doesn't work out rest assured there will be a ton of second guessers here next year pointing out the players the Steelers passed on to get Bush.

    I don't remember a recent draft where no CB or WR wasn't in the top 20. I have to think that at least one in each area will be selected in round 1

    Update: ESPN said 2008 is the last time a WR didn't go in the first round

    I'm good with it. We talked about trade up with Buffalo earlier in the week. Thought there was a shot at it perhaps even for White at 9 but Bush is a heck of a consolation prize imho. He has game n we had a need.

    it's weird... maybe supply and demand. With a ton of supply maybe teams feel they can wait til later to grab one. I predict once one goes there will be a major run on them. maybe squeezing out the Steelers since they traded away their 2nd pick.

    Speaking of WR the Ravens just took Hollywood Brown. I think this guy is going to be a pain in the ass for years to come. I was hoping they would go with DK

    It is the point. It's certainly easy to sit back and Monday morning QB from a message board. So easy a caveman can do it.
