Default Pittsburgh Steelers: One of the best at improving on the NFL Draft

Pittsburgh Steelers: One of the best at improving on the NFL Draft
March 24th, 2010 by Mark Smith Leave a comment Go to comments

The 6-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the best in the league at improving through the NFL draft. Rarely does this team sign big name free-agents, preferring instead to develop NFL betting talent from within. And as the 6 Lombardi Trophies attest the team does a pretty good job of picking players and developing them into major contributors to the franchise football betting success.

This year the team has plenty of areas to improve upon in the NFL draft after it failed to even qualify for the football betting playoffs just one year removed from winning the teamís most recent Super Bowl.

According to NFL betting lines experts the offensive line is a major area of concern for this club which always is among the football betting leader in sacks given up and had a below average running game in the 2009 football wagering competition. But NFL betting lines experts also know that this team rarely drafts O-lineman very high in the process and generally prefers to spend lower draft picks on players they can develop.

The teamís secondary is also a weak spot and for team that pridesí itself on being one of the better defensive squads in football betting that are needs addressed. The Steelers will likely to address this area with their first-round pick in this yearís NFL draft. The team will likely look for a good lock down corner that can also play a role in the return game.

A player like CB Kyle Wilson of Boise State should be on the board when the Steelers have their first pick in the NFL draft but some NFL betting experts donít think he grades out as a first round talent. If the team does opt for O-Line talent in the upcoming football draft itís widely expected by football wagering fans that the team could take a player like G Mike Iupati of Idaho, the best guard available in the NFL draft and first round talent.

Pittsburgh has always been noted as one of the best drafting teams in the league.
