This always happens. The Steelers talk up a guy... and then, he gets drafted by another team.
The Steelers loved a safety from Miami, and talked about how impressive he was at his combine interview... so much so, that the Ravens took him.
The Steelers were talking about Brandon Albert (when no one else was)... and the Chiefs took him. This doesn't bug me because Albert got taken (he was average); it bugs me, because if the Steelers had gone Albert in R1, they probably go Ray Rice in R2 (instead of Spinny & Sweed).
Lastly, Tomlin fell in love with a local CB... and those stinking NYJets traded up & stole him away.
