Re: When is it right time to use first round pick for a qb?
I hear what you're saying... but, no.
As someone already said: not until BB has 2-3 years left. And even then, maybe not.
Right now, it is more important to surround BB with talent (OL, WRs, RB) and/or to solidify the aging defense. Why? To win as many SuperBowls with BB as possible; he is one of the few "elite" QBs in this league, and the Steelers might not find one again for a while (between Bradshaw & BB, there was 20 years).
