    "Pre-Draft" thoughts by Moats about our new tight end

    He really wanted this guy. Expected to have to trade up in the second to get him.
    Interesting to see how he as a defender sees this kids skill set.

    Again not a "justification" of a pick after the fact but why we shoulddraft him before it happened.

    I did not like the pick but I'm warming up to it now.

    I can't wait to see this kid play.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 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.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    but but but, we should have drafted a center.

    but but but, we should have drafted an OT...
    Steel Maniac predicted no RBs would be chosen in the 1st round, so of course we selected:

    1(24) Najee Harris RB Alabama

    I didn’t hear you mentioning you wanted a te.
    I actually think you wanted an olineman.
    This is too easy.
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    Man, Moatsie was that stoked on Fry before the draft, then I can't wait for his post draft podcast.

    He talks about the mismatches that are possible with him and Ebron, and reminded us of Sean Davis trying to cover Gronk. I had to look that one up to remember it.... Gronk literally laughing at Davis after the TD;

    I didn't whine about it either like Steel Maniac has been.

    people are saying he needs to be heath miller for the selection to be effective.

    but honestly i think heath is the floor in the passing game, he looks much more fluid and athletic catching the ball and running after the catch. heath could be 30 yards away from the end zone and a DB at the 50 would catch him

    Hahahahahaha .. you can’t bad mouth Heath in these parts. He’s been romanticized up the wazoo by now. Watch your mouth!!

    I love the way Friermuth catches the ball. He looks very natural and sure handed. Not uber-athletic, but he can have his way with smaller safeties by effectively high-pointing, which he seems to do well, and LBs should stuggle to cover him as Moats was talking about

    heath was great for what he was. a 2 way TE. great hands, knew how to get open, good/great blocker

    that said, being nice, i'd say he wasn't known for his speed. lol
