Te'o will be off the board way before the Steelers draft.

Saw a mock draft with him going to Pittsburgh yesterday. If not, they can trade up, they've done it before.

I just looked at 10 mock drafts (yeah, I know...) and only one of them had Te'o around at the 17th pick.

If you had to pray to Willie Colon, would you?


What is Colon the diety of, the undeserved paycheck?

There's a saying about shoe size and intelligence that goes here. Only crappy QBs like Tebow get credit for team wins.

They would just promote Kirby Wilson to OC if Haley left.

BRoeth was in high school when Gailey was the Steelers OC. Doubt that matters.

Looked at my first mock draft, it was on rotoworld. Had the steelers taking a tackle from Michigan. I'm 100% confident that the steelers will not be using their #1 pick on an offensive lineman.

What these websites should do is assemble one beat writer from each team to make the pick, if he's that naive of the steeler's situation he must not have a clue what's going on in with most teams.

I'd say they should draft a guard to replace Colon, but I know better. Guessing they take a WR to replace Wallace, and then hope no one notices when the WR they draft can't get on the field for the first 10 games.

Draft RB, RB, RB, RB, let them all play till one pops. Trade him for something really needed. Rinse, wash, repeat, profit.

You draft all the RBs then no one has them, then you trade and get good, duh.

lol, I completely agree with your overall point. Drafting early RBs is a total crapshoot, and I am not a fan of using a draft pick on an early one usually.

I'd be willing to bet the list of successful RB's drafted in the first round far outweighs those that succeeded while being undrafted.

So Ryan Clark called steelers fans hypocrites on twitter for bashing ray Lewis being charged with obstruction of justice for basically covering up a murder when we have Ben. Possibly the dumbest tweet I've seen
