Default Re: Kirwan's final 3 round mock draft

I'm sticking with my very short wish list of Freddie Barnes...who also did not visit, and won't be drafted by the Steelers.

I'd love Freddie Barnes in the 5th. He can be the possession guy when Ward retires and we'd still have Wallace, Randle El, Battle and just need another WR with some speed.

oh, i forgot... you're back. well let me once again emphasize that reading is fundamental and comprehension is key.

familial relations to arians, and believing that the front office is always perfect, and would never lie, skirt the truth, or lead followers astray, doesnt mean they are impervious to making a mistake when it comes to the draft.

as official guru, i know you have special insider connections and insight to the front office (other than the constant wild speculation and flinging poo at the wall), but i can count on 1 hand the good decisions the steelers have made in trying to acquire WR's since hines ward.

randel el- 2nd
trying to get houshmandzadeh
mike wallace- 3rd

ike taylor is the only CB to work out in that same span.

i am well on record why we DONT need to spend a 1st on a wr (or even a 2nd).

with that being said, kirwan still has a fundamental understanding of football and war rooms that is light years ahead of what you have displayed.

him predicting they will draft a WR still carries a million times more weight than you saying they absolutely will not.

atleast we can agree it is unlikely to happen ( i contend its not out of the question and the possiblility cant be dismissed) and would be the stupid thing to do.

hence.... stupid is as stupid does. (giving arians and ben yet another weapon is being an enabler and boarderline gump in the wrong way.)

they gave in to bens pandering for big targets after letting plexico walk- moved up to draft holmes, spent a 3rd on spaeth, and a second on sweed. (thats about 5 throw away picks right there, unless sweed pans out).

then they gave in to arians bitching about the use of a true fullback, (gave him about 5 posers who could try to pretend to be one), and watched as we handed over our smashmouth identity to a kid who cant even keep his dick in his pants if he walked into chuck-e-cheese.

nothing at this point suprises me.

the smartest thing we done in the past 3 years was get rid of the internet porn pusher we called an offensive lineman, and dumped the multi-million $$$ contracts of over the hill linemen such as simmons and smith.

franchising starks twice wasnt too brilliant either.

all things considered, everything points to us drafting a wr. might as well take dez bryant and all of his character concerns.
good point, they have made a lot of dumb moves recently. By the way you forgot to mention the steelers continuing to keep arians

Bleep
Blop
Bloop

This changes nothing. When we DON'T draft a WR with our first pick, not to mention not picking this kid from GT, I'll still be right, and Kirwan will still be wrong. And I'll have the added bonus of not having to clean his spackling off my upper lip from slurping at his nutsack...

But I guess I'll always be sad that I can't join the sad little Braintrust social group...you'll always have me there, bench warmer...

not much concern there, with "future HOF" ted ginn and top 20 draftpick "lil' animal" already clogging those pipes.

i would say theres about a 3% chance the steelers actually go with a wr as kirwan suggests, and for your sake, i hope he is wrong so that you have some sort of phyrric victory to feel good about.

since everyone knows ben and arians are both on their final strike and hanging by a thin thread, i dont think upper management is looking to do them any added favors like pandering to their draft wishes.

plus they still have that d. dixon at wr experiment to implement.

And yet again another nfl draft thread started in good faith has turned into a urinal.

Demaryius Thomas is a candidate that could definitely merit being picked at #18.

I understand the logic totally. High Quality receiver, High quality graduate, #1 receiver potential, potential hole at #1 WR on steelers roster this year / or into the near future. You explore all options because anything can and usually will transpire on draft day.

Will he be a steeler come tomorrow? probably not, but there is a chance and I for one would not be totally pissed off if it was to eventuate.

For a diehard fan of draft season, in a way, I cant wait for it to be over.

Look, here's the point. The thread was fine without the bullshit half-assed nit-wit editorializing. The FACT is, the Steelers have drafted better than any team in the NFL in the last 10 years, and the proof is irrefutable. What other team won two Super Bowl's in the decade with fewer marquee FA signings? I think the '05 team had like 19 starters acquired through the draft. The FO knows what they are doing...

When I see garbage "data", I'm going to call it out, especially when the source spews more of it then the next 10 biggest bullshitters on this board combined.

Now, back to the topic. Sure, the kid is probably going to be good. But there are also a ton of better fits at #18 for us. WR isn't as deep as it was, but the cupboard isn't bare. I just don't think due diligence was done when this mock was made, and my extra comments are addressing the super faulty logic added in by the OP.
