our drafts always seem weak because we always pick late.. the players that fall to us are supposedly weak too since they fell that far. our drafts hardly ever look any good until the drafted guys get playing time.
NBC seems to agree with my thoughts as well on the Steelers drafting. they gave the Steelers a B+
The Steelers usually stay in their draft slot, and somehow find contributors players that fit their style. Cameron Heyward could be a unheralded five-technique starter for years. He’ll continue the team’s tradition of late first-round finds. Marcus Gilbert and cornerback Curtis Brown were solid picks where they were taken and fill needs. The Steelers didn’t reach for secondary picks. Pittsburgh’s drafts tend to look better after a few years, which is the whole idea.
