    This sounds sensible, are they really that awful at drafting DB’s or is it coaching. Probably a little of both.

    Easy enough to see if this has merit but tracking how well players have done since leaving here. How is Burns doing these days? Still putrid?

    I think Hilton is doing well but I don't think the Bengals are asking to do much beyond his blitzing. Ross Cockrell seems to be up and down. I think the only instance of a drafted player doing well once they left was Keenan Lewis with the Saints I believe.

    Cockrell was always been a journeyman. Lewis and Hilton were very good players the Steelers let get away due to cap constraints.

    D took another step back tonight - Seattle ran the ball down their throat and Geno Smith almost beat them.

    Spillane continues to play in dime, Bush looking like a bust, Minkah's downward spiral continues.
