Steelers HAVE to get a non-brital Back Up QB. A veteran one. Batch was great, but he might get hurt as well, another year in it. Have him as the 3rd string.

I want the Steelers to draft Rambo. That is the kind of jersey I want to wear if I have to wear one.

If they stay at #17, they have to go WR/OLB/SAFETY.

We will see if the Steelers also think so.

No, common sense shot it down. Tell me, what Quarterback would you take over a defensive player in what is quite possibly the best defensive draft in a decade. If you're going to criticize, make sure you have some kind of ground or footing to stand on. In this case, know what Quarterback prospects are available in this draft, then do research on what defensive playmakers are available in the later rounds and may have fallen due to various reasons.

If you're going to get snippy, know what you're talking about. I'd appreciate that.

I don't really dig the idea, to be honest. I think there are much more pressing needs that warrant the use of draft picks, especially in the early rounds. Plus, as everyone else has said, the quarterback class in this draft is less than stellar.

I'm hoping the Steelers grab Chance Warmack in the first round, Eddie Lacy or Eric Reid in the second, and a tall (6'2"+) wide receiver in the third.

There are serviceable backups to be had in free agency. E.g., Matt Moore

To many holes on this team to take a QB early on an average to poor QB draft class.
