Re: Consensus: worst draft in AFCN
Every year, the first week after the draft, the Steelers receive grades like B-, C+. Then 3 or 4 years later when they re-evaluate the drafts, the Steelers usually end up having one of the top drafts for that year overall. I can only hope that this year is the same. We take guys that fit our system and character rather than draft the "spash" name that year. And just like you said Raw Steel, the Browns selected a 3-4 NT to play in 4-3 system, and they traded up for him when he likely still would've been there at 27. And good luck Andy Dalton throwing in November and December outside in Cinci, Cleveland, Baltimore and Pittsburgh with less than optimal arm strength. When Jimmy Smith gets suspended within the next 2 years for any number of off-field incidents, then tell me who had the best draft in the AFC North. Yep, I'm perfectly fine with our draft strategy year after year.
