Default Re: steelers interested in Pryor ?

Steelers presumably will stay away
stewart was a 2nd round gamble , tebow was a first. both in my opinion went 3 rounds earlier than they should have. one of the talking heads on espn radio said he expects someone will pony up a 5th to 7th round pick for him. like dixon , had pryor played 1 more year , some sucker, like the moron in denver , would have pissed away a first round pick for him. all i'm suggesting is , since the colbert era he's only hit on about 15% of fifth round picks ,why not put in a 5th round bid ? odds are whoever they pick next year in the fifth won't amount to much anyway... i'm not even suggesting he'll be a good backup qb , but his athleticism certainly has caught a lot of teams attention , including the steelers.
