Default Re: Steelers '06 draft

OL first round is probably gonna be the way they go. The Steelers are starting to draft like the Eagles do...they anticipate what players will be washed up or FA's that they aren't willing to pay top dollar for and draft accordingly. Max Starks was an excellent example of this. I think they'll stay away from skill positions in the 1st round because the RB's and WR's even falling to very late 1st Rd positions are holding out longer and demanding more money than they are worth.

It's also interesting to note that the NFL Players Association will be looking at trying to institute some kind of rookie cap like the NBA has in place. If that happens, it will completely change the way NFL teams draft next year...
