Steelers Select Kevin Beachum with their final pick

The Steelers finished off their draft the same way they started it.  They took an offensive linemen.  The team took Kevin Beachum and OG out of SMU.  Beachum was another player the Steelers brought in for a visit.

Beachum is an undersized quick offensive linemen.  He has good feet but he lacks ideal size.  He […]


Steelers select Terrence Frederick with their 3rd pick of the 7th Round

The Steelers added a cornerback with their third pick of the 7th round.  The Steelers selected Terrence Frederick out of Texas A&M.  Frederick is a smaller guy with good speed who can contribute on special teams.

Frederick is a zone corner.  He is a good tackler.  He knows how to read a QB and break […]


Steelers Select David Paulson with their 2nd pick of the 7th round

The Steelers stuck with a visitor with their second pick of the 7th round.  With the 240th pick of the NFL Draft the Steelers selected David Paulson TE from Oregon.  Paulson visited the team in the pre draft process.

Paulson is an underrated player who got pushed back by a lack of use in […]

The Steelers took their firs of four picks in the 7th round.  At pick 231 they selected Toney Clemons WR from Colorado.  Clemons is a speedster that the Steelers brought in for a visit.  Clemons is 6’2 and 210 pounds.  He is a hands catcher.  He does not let the ball get to his […]

This draft just keeps getting better.  The Steelers moved up in the fourth round to get a player they needed.   The Steelers drafted Alameda Ta’amu NT from Washington.  The Steelers gave up their 4th and 6th round pick to the Redskins to get Ta’amu.

Ta’amu is a huge man.  He was expected to go […]


25 players to watch for the Steelers on Day 3 of the Draft

The Steelers have a great draft so far.  Tomorrow they have 7 picks to use.  The team still has some holes to fill and these picks could be very useful.  The Steelers have already taken 2 offensive linemen so I am taking those guys off the board even though there are still some good ones […]


Steelers continue to bolster offensive line with second round pick Mike Adams OT Ohio State

The Steelers continued their influx of talent on the offensive line with their second round pick.   The Steelers selected Ohio State OT Mike Adams.  Adams is a prototypical left tackle who fell in the draft due to some off the field issues.  Adams is a first round talent and if he keeps his head […]

Potential First Round Pick Manti Te’o Staying in School

Notre Dame Inside Linebacker Manti Te’o has decided to stay in school for his senior season.  Te’o leads the Irish in almost every category that a linebacker should at Notre Dame.  He has 115 tackles, 13 TFL, and 4.5 sacks.  Teo is regarded as a first round talent and could have gone as high […]


Steelers Select Cameron Heyward

The newest Steeler also happens to have some excellent bloodlines.

At the end of  a crazy first round where major names fell, quarterbacks were being drafted as if they were made of gold, and Baltimore was involved in a ridiculous passing situation, the Steelers stood pat and let the players that they coveted simply […]


Most believe Steelers will choose Aaron Williams at draft

I feel as if I have been fighting an uphill battle for weeks.  The major consensus around the league and around the area is that the Steelers will select Aaron Williams-Cornerback/Safety out of Texas.  I have been highly against this pick from the beginning.

Williams is going to be a safety in the NFL but […]


Final Complete First Round Mock Draft

This is my best guess at what could happen in the NFL Draft tonight.  I made some trades and took a look at different scenarios.  With the lack of player movement due to no CBA the trades are few and far between.  Quarterbacks run ramped with 6 going in the first round.  Defensive Line owns […]

The Steelers need to draft tomorrow under the assumption that Ike Taylor will not be returning to the team.  Ike is a loyal guy and has done a tremendous job and good work while with the Steelers but his agent seems to think that the Steelers are not going to be able to keep Ike […]
