Stillers Draft

Who do you think they pick?

I'd love to see Eddie Lacy. Some are saying Jones from Georgia, Patterson from Tenn, even the TE from Notre Dame.

Re: Stillers Draft

Jones is a player, but his speed and back issues worry me. I would love it if they got Lacy.

A D lineman or safety wouldn't hurt either

Re: Stillers Draft

The real question is, if Colbert doesn't come up big in this draft, who will they hire as the new G.M.?

Seems like the track record isn't so great since Bill Cowher left. Maybe just coincidence, where they are picking, and all that.

Ziggy Hood - serviceable but not what you'd expect from a #1.

Heyward - B-U-S-T

DeCastro - Unfortunate injury, or an injury prone lineman? One year isn't a fair trial, but that thought has to be considered.

Pouncey - a player, but consider some of his Tweets, a few injuries may have limited him a little bit, but so far he's not lived up to the hype as the Next Dermontti Dawson.

Doesn't really matter anyway, too many holes on this team, couple of safeties one more big hit away from dementia, no running game, typical erratic corners, getting a wildcard berth this year will be very lucky.

A closed mind keeps the truth out

Take a look at the Steelers picks in 1996 and 97. Bad (mediocre really) draft classes happen to everyone. How many Super Bowl teams has Colbert help assemble? Cowhers influence in this regard is way over-rated. If BC always had his way, we'd be talking about Philip Rivers as the Steelers starting QB. Pouncey is one of, if not the best center in the game right now. It's not really his fault the rest of the line has stunk, injuries, whatever. To "fault" De Castro seems a little short sighted as well. Do they need to do better, yes. Is it all Colberts fault? no.

I forgot to mention, I'd like to see a CB or LB in this spot. There is value in the RB spot in the later rounds.

Re: Stillers Draft

Well, there he is... Jarvis Jones. He's got to stay healthy.
