They drafted the right positions, just need to see how they pan out! Pretty exciting stuff.



I went with a B.

B.

The FO and scouts always seem to find good players way more often then busts. Have to see how they do in the next couple of years after some development.

Call me biased, but i went with an A (yeah i think i shouldve went A-, B+ ) mostly because i think the Steelers did a great job this year drafting great, and maybe hidden talent in the early, middle, and late rounds. Evander Hood looks to be a star, im glad he got to us. I thought our bevy of 3rd round picks were used very well to fit our needs, without sacrificing talent. The Frank Summers pick and A.Q Shipley pick made me go nuts! Frank being a fullback, im not that surprised was still there, but A.Q Shipley??? I held my breath when he wasnt drafted in the 6th.

I scored em a B+

We really addressed strong needs on both lines. Urbik gets good movement/push on his man and hes versatile. Ziggy brings great strength and a quick motor for a 300-lb'er with a 4.8 40-yd time. He'll start 2010.

I dont expect the Ole Miss kid to bring too much the coming season but i do believe with the right tutoring he'll be another Nate with better handles. But im anxious to see that 4.3 speed demonstrated.

The DB from Oregon St is physical, and thats something we need and besides hes got Ike Taylor size (6'1).

This organization has a knack for doing the right things at the right time. They did a good job yesterday/today. No headscratchers IMO.

Between an A to a B. I like the selections on paper. Now once I have had a chance to see them on the field, then I'll be able to give a final grade.

The more I review the picks, the more I like this draft. We plugged a lot of holes this weekend: deep threat speed, shortyardage, returner, OL help, physical DB, DL depth... If these guys perform, were gonna need a bigger Bandwagon!
