    Still curious why an Interior DL w/ 9.5 sacks in his Sr. YR. dropped so far??

    I watch almost zero college football but could Buggs have been the beneficiary of some very talented outside pass rushers that forced the interior line to block him with one man and he was able to dominate? Or, did he feast on lower tier talent and get blocked by the top interior linemen?

    Sid, don’t apply logic; go with flow and say he’s the steal of the draft; Colbert knows something that the other 31 GM’s don’t. Get in lock step man!
    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.

    Kinda Like Aaron Jones....except Aaron was 20 pounds lighter when drafted and was just as slow.
    Jones played in the brutal Ohio Valley Conference against future lumerjacks and farmers while this is an SEC kid who dominated in the SEC against NFL caliber players.

    Or we feature a defense that does not require elite speed in a defensive end AND getting a solid value in a SIXTH ROUNDER.
    You act like we reached for the kid in the first round.

    For what it's worth, 6th-round draft pick Isaiah Buggs goes by "Big Pooh." Not quite Big Snack, but hey, I still like it.
    Doesn't "Big Poo" typically follow "Big Snack".

    Any quote showing someone thinks he's the steal of the draft?

    He's a late rounder that will probably never be an NFL starter.

    He's got potential and was worth the price we paid (almost nothing).

    Hopefully he works out because it's great for the team when late picks become starters

    Certain posters will always claim that the vast majority of people on this board think every single pick the Steelers make is automatically considered to be "the steal of the draft" about 5 seconds after the team turns the card in.

    But you are right, I haven't heard that phrase here one time since the draft happened regarding any pick, never mind a 6th rounder.

    I think most of the narratives regarding our later round day three picks have been to temper immediate expectations...these guys should be able to contribute on special teams and might provide some depth on defense, and that's just fine. If a 6th rounder ultimately develops into starter eventually, then you managed to unearth a gem...awesome. But even if ends up being nothing more than cheap rotational depth and a special teams contributor for a few years, it is not necessarily a failed draft pick...good teams need those types of guys at the bottom of their roster as well.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Hopefully this isn’t the second year in a row that the Steelers draft a worthless bum DL from Alabama.
