    maybe the rest of y'all... I'm typically looking at the team weaknesses and the viable draftees within 3-4 games. Gives me a few weeks to figure out which random games i'll watch to get to know a player.

    CB is certainly a need. LIl Peezy is going to be on the short list. He is a willing run defender and has solid cover skills - that's a Steelers DB all day long. I wonder if familiarity with a player personally can influence your decision to select or pass on them.
    I think I'd be generally happy with this provided there weren't guys who were obviously better values than the guys we picked.

    I think most of the guys we have on the OL are NFL caliber players. But are any of them are top 1/3 of the guys at their position? Let's stock up on talent.

    And (I'd bet you agree) that being good at run blocking is part of "protecting Kenny" here.

    I highly recommend going LT in Round 1 and Center with our 2nd pick in Round 2.

    Get a LG in the later rounds. Nothing changes until the OL is upgraded considerably.
    Help me find my post proving I am a Yinzer!

    My early 2024 draft:

    1.) OC - Jackson Powers-Johnson, C - Oregon
    2.) DL -Ruke Orhorhoro, DL, Clemson
    3.) WR - Nathaniel Dell, WR - Houston
    4a.) OT - Matt Goncalves, ROT - Pitt
    4b.) S -Tykee Smith - S - Georgia
    6A.) CB - Shon Stephensl - D - Ferris State
    6B..) DT - Jamree Kromah DT James Madison

    UDFA: P, WR, QB, TE



    We don't apologize for winning!

    Like your mock there... would not be upset with those top 3 at all

    1) Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State
    2a) Henry To'o To'o, ILB, Alabama (Bears pick)
    2b) John Michael Schmitz, C, Minnesota (Steelers pick)

    Sadly, too many needs for one draft. So this is a two year project. Offense early in 2023. Defense early in 2024. Gonna have a couple of ho-hum seasons to get through.

    This. If they fix the OL and get one more weapon and a real OC, though, it doesn't have to be a ho-hum 2023.

    Keep seeing a lot of talk about how the Steelers need help along the OL.

    While they do, that need for help does not outweigh the massive need for a shutdown CB, one that Pittsburgh must find quickly — like this offseason.

    CB is a big need but the deciding factor is the Steelers spotty record to identify quality DBs in the draft. OL is a much easier position to project success. So LT gets the nod.
    The Steelers can look for a CB in FA, but need to be prepared to pay premium dollars for a premium player.

    What about the guy you loved, layne?
    Isn’t he ready to step in and be the stud you predicted?
    Lol
    How is it possible to have the best owner, best front office, best gm, best HC, good/great drafts every year and good FA acquisitions every year, but only have 3 playoff wins in 14 years?
