    Why wasn't Benito Considered?! Very confusing pick here.

    Overall decent draft, I think all our needs were met. Were they all home runs? I don’t know yet ....

    It’s hard to say it was great when you look at the drafts of the rest of the teams in our division...

    I just watched the Carlos Davis tape vs Wisconsin from 2018.

    Not many positives from that game.

    Nope!! Not one. That said, he is a 7th Round Pick. Heck, just making the team will be a big win for him.

    Last pick - The big discus thrower!

    Overall, we still surprised everyone with some great picks. That's what solid scouting does for you.

    Never know until ya know, of course, but for me I'm good with every pick.

    I would give the Steelers a grade of B-, they filled most of their needs with only having 6 picks.

    Because the Steelers aren’t brand name shoppers. Ravens definitely are, I think everyone they took was household name.

    There is encouragement in that, Steelers cast their net far and wide.

    From a fan standpoint it’s a downer, you want to see the names you’ve scouted get picked but probably limiting your chances of success.

    We got the lesser of the 2 but hopeful enough upside to get MCCullers off the team.

    Well... given Pittsburgh's track record of drafting players since 2000, I think that I will put trust into their Scouting Department. Besides, Kevin Colbert has done an awesome job since 2000. Would not trade him for any GM.

    Overall, I give this draft a B+. I was much higher on Chase Claypool than others and shocked that he lasted that far. "Mapletron" will definitely help Pittsburgh in both the short and long term. Alex Highsmith not only adds depth but also acts as a succession plan should Bud and the team fail to get a deal done. Giving Anthony McFarland a chance is key as his best year was with Matt Canada. It will be interesting to see what they do with Jaylen Samuels as this essentially makes both Samuels and Kerrith Whyte Jr. the odd men out currently.


    Kevin Dotson being in the fourth shocked me as well. Age or not, he is a throwback mauler who can get better and will likely be considered a steal when it is all said and done three years from now assuming all goes well for him. Antonie Brooks Jr. can fill the hybrid spot but I also assume this means that the team has decided on what to do with Cam Sutton. Carlos Davis is a bit of an oddball pick given the fact that Benito Jones was available but it is a 7th round pick. That said, I am not expecting too much to begin with; doubly so since Chris Wormley is now on the roster.

    Ravens colts and Vikings had the best graded draft with an A grading.

    Next with A- grading is Steelers, Cowboys, bengals, redskins cardinals.

    got the A- grading because we got an all pro safety in mink lol.

    anotjer report has us at C+ lol

    We have a guaranteed all pro safety. Look at him vs what we drafted in edmunds at first. I’ll take mink all day everyday
