also in the review of the afc north draft they said we had the best move!!


"The AFC North is one of the toughest divisions in football, and its talent pool became deeper this weekend with the influx of drafted players such as Bengals linebacker Keith Rivers (No. 8), Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall and new Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (No. 18).

Here is a breakdown of this weekend's draft within the AFC North:
Rashard Mendenhall gives the Steelers a legitimate weapon behind starting RB Willie Parker.
Best move
T he best move was actually two moves made by the Pittsburgh Steelers. General manager Kevin Colbert and coach Mike Tomlin ignored the team's most glaring need -- offensive line -- on Day 1 and opted to go with the best available players. Those two players were Illinois' Mendenhall at No. 23 and Texas receiver Limas Sweed at No. 53. Both players graded out as first-round talents in most projections, meaning Pittsburgh got tremendous value for its picks.

The Steelers didn't necessarily need a tailback or a receiver. But pairing Mendenhall with Willie Parker and adding Sweed to the receiving duo of Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes will make defensive coordinators around the league cringe this season.

I'm glad to see we had an all around good draft this year. Seems like they must be pretty confident with the OT pick. Let's hope he pans out. Overall, I'm excited to see they wanted to load up their offense this year. Keep in mind, last year we had 3rd and longs every drive. This year, with the addition of Mendenhall, Sweed, and Dixon (if he gets playing time) we should see an increase in explosiveness.

I think we have one of the better drafts this year.

The chiefs had a great draft and I think we had the second best draft.
