Thats a pretty good lineup of players. The Steelers Front office should be proud. But did at least half of last years drafted class make the squad the entire season

Just goes to show you how much the first round of the draft can be totally overrated.

I know what you're saying but you can't leverage the organization on rookie free agents. Surely you just want to be pleasantly surprised.

Of course Cowher gets credit but Kevin Colbert deserves major kudos - and the scouts that work for them. Does it surprise anyone that they are both from Pittsburgh?

Watch for big things from Frazier this year and also from Arnold Harrison.. the coaches and FO are really big on these 2 reserves contributing on ST and spelling the starters.
