Steelers will select 17th in 2013 NFL Draft
 
The Pittsburgh Steelers fought hard to earn against the Cleveland Browns the win preventing the first losing campaign in nearly a decade. Their consolation prize for not making the playoffs, is the 17th selction in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Interesting, 17th,
Well, win or lose, we still would have been in the high "teens" draft-wise.
But I'm still curious to know what are draft pick would have been, had we lost, ?, even though that's a moot point now.

In the end, it was better to win honestly, than lose dishonestly.

It matters less of where we pick than who we pick. Top picks fail miserably i.e. JaMarcus Russell, Vince Young, Matt Lienart, would you be satisfied with Reggie Bush. Too many people putting emphasis on picking higher equates better picks, not necessarily so. For every draft you can name that we missed out on a quality player (ala Revis) then I can name an instead pick for example how bout Ray Rice instead of Mendenhall. High sight is what makes monday morning QBs so good.

Not really, they "BOTH" matter,
'cause thanks to our miserable 2003 record, and a high "teen" draft pick, how do you think we got Ben, ... ?

Ugh, we could have picked as high as 11 if we hadn't magically gotten motivated to win once we were out of the playoffs. Hopefully somebody awesome falls to 17 but we'll probably wind up reaching for somebody we could have gotten later on anyway.

Didn't the Jets own the pick in front of us for Revis??? I agree that it doesn't matter where you pick, misses happen across the board but sometimes picking a few spots earlier certainly gets you a better player ala the Revis situation! No matter what, we are picking 17th so hopefully it's a TE, WR or a RB. I know those are "glamour " positions but I think we need one of each. And of course depth in other areas.

The draft is huge. But the Steelers must realize they need to hit the free agent market if they want to be good next year

The NYJets jumped ahead of the Steelers (from 25) to steal Revis.

Thank you for pouring salt in my wound. :wink02:

I say "NO" to WR, RB, or TE... especially at 17. At 32, maaaybe (Tavon Austin, Tyler Eiffert)... but, not at 17.

If this was a perfect world we would of picked Brady in the 7th round the year he came out. All I am saying is unless a team does its homework and sometimes even if they do (you cannot predict injuries or just plain stupid) there are no guarantees. If early picks was the end all of success then the Lions, Browns, and Jaguars would of been to the SB by now. Some of you just cant be happy with a win, even if it cost us an earlier pick, I want my team to win and I look forward to seeing how the draft turns out. BTW i will likely wait at least 3-5 years before I declare anyone a bust as long as they are still on the roster.

Where we pick is predicative of who we pick. No pick is a sure thing and great players fall through the cracks but players who are picked earlier have a higher chance of being successful..that's why they're picked earlier. With the rookie wage scale, nobody can argue they'd rather have the 17th pick than the 16th or the 10th. Draft position and player success are correlated.
