Default Re: From Bell curves to Le'veon Bell : A reason to have faith in the steelers draft

Honestly, I think the last four drafts will put the Steelers right back in the mix.

2010: Maurkice Pouncey, Emmanuel Sanders, Antonio Brown
2011: Cameron Heyward, Marcus Gilbert, Cortez Allen
2012: David DeCastro, Mike Adams
2013: Jarvis Jones, LeVeon Bell, Markus Wheaton, Shamarko Thomas

Those are the players whom I can see being key contributors. And this doesn't even include Jason Worilds, Sean Spence, Alameda Ta'amu or Kelvin Beachum either. I think Jones will end up taking the starting ROLB job from Worilds, but I still believe that Worilds can be a contributor in a reserve role, and same with Beachum. I'm less sure about Spence and Ta'amu, though. At the very least, I hope the Steelers keep Spence for two more years so he can retire with a pension even if he never gets a chance to play. As for Ta'amu, he needs to get his shit together and keep it together.
