As for Burfict, the character issues are evidently something serious, as I have seen mocks place him as low as the third round. That doesn't scream "Steelers". Besides, I'm not sure we need nasty in the middle. Brainy and quick might be more like it. When was the last time we had someone "nasty" at ILB? Lambert, most likely.
I don't think we could go wrong with Glenn but Burfict is just a manimal. I like him and I think he has the skills to be a great ILB at the NFL level. He can combine nasty with being smart and if we do draft him he's got some great guys to learn from. I think the Steelers locker room will get his character issues fixed.

After you see Vontaze Burfict's highlights on youtube you may think twice about not wanting or passing on this guy as a Steeler.



I like you mock in terms of addressing needs. I think we need all the positions you mentioned. The top 3 picks all should be devoted to ILB, G, NT. All your picks would help this team, but just add a 3-4 Defensive End in there somewhere as they need backups badly.

If we go O-Line in the first 2 rounds...But we are talking about Colbert here, this dude could just as likely take 2 wr's...I hope we go Tackle and Guard and Kick Colon inside if he comes back...

i dont see why alot of people have us grabbing an ILB'er with our 1st rounder. we still have Sylvester who can play. of course it would be nice but we have other more important needs.

Gay will be gone and if we dont belive one of our young corners can start then that becomes a position of need with Taylor getting older.
our offensive line is our main weakness though. we need to upgrade our guards.

I'm looking at Mark Barron in the first round, or possibly the best available o-lineman.

The Steelers 95% of the time go BPA and Burfict is definately the BPA because of the fact that he is going to slide due to his "issues"! But if the staff think that he is beyond "growing up" then that is a different story....

Burfict still has the combine, pro day, and interview process before we say he is the BPA

i agree. i want a offensive lineman but wouldnt be surprised if we took Barron. if we feel he can be the next Troy then i would love to grab him

I just don't see us taking Barron at all, there are plenty of S in the draft this year and the S class next season is much better. But knowing Kevin Colbert he is most likely take a QB in the first round or something or trade the pick for pencils
