The Pats* suck and Tom Brady is gay.

Steelers Not So Good After First Round


Friday, 12:45 p.m.

The easy part of the draft is over the hard part begins tonight. You don’t need to be a football genius to spot first-round talent. The job becomes more difficult after that.

As Mike Vukovcan points out at KDKA.com, the Steelers under director of football operations Kevin Colbert have been ``average to below average’’ after the first round since 2003.

Vukovcan has gone through every draft since 2003 and rated every player. The results are not pretty.

Here's his year-by-year, round-by-round analysis. -- Bob Smizik



2nd Round (1 good pick)

2009: No pick
2008: Limas Sweed (Awful)
2007: LaMarr Woodley (Great)
2006: No pick
2005: Bryant McFadden (Average)
2004: Ricardo Colclough (Awful)
2003: Alonzo Jackson (Awful)


3rd Round (2 good picks)

2009: Kraig Urbik (Undetermined, but can't be looking too impressive because they just drafted another guard)

Mike Wallace (Very good)
Keenan Lewis (undetermined)
2008: Bruce Davis (Disaster)
2007: Matt Spaeth (Below Average)
2006: Anthony Smith (Disaster)
Willie Reid (Awful)
2005: Trai Essex (Average to Below Average)
2004: Max Starks: (Very Good)
2003: No Pick

4th Round (2 good picks, 1 OK pick)

2009: No Pick
2008: Tony Hills (Disaster)
2007: Daniel Sepulveda (Average, but has he been worth a 4th round pick?)

2006: Willie Colon (Solid)
Orien Harris (Awful)
2005: Fred Gibson (Awful)
2004: No Pick
2003: Ike Taylor (Above Average)

5th Round (0 good picks, so far)

2009: Joe Burnett (undetermined)
Frank Summers (undetermined)
2008: Dennis Dixon (undetermined)
2007: Cam Stephenson (Cut)
2006: Omar Jacob (Cut)
Charles Davis (Cut)
2005: Rian Wallace (Bad)
2004: Nathaniel Adibi (Cut)
2003: Brian St. Pierre (Below average)

6th Round (1 good pick)

2009: Ra'Shon Harris (Undetermind)

2008 Mike Humpal (Cut)

Ryan Mundy (undermined)
2007: No pick
2006: Marvin Philip (Cut)
2005: Chris Kemoeatu (Above Average)
2004: Bo Lacy (Cut)
Matt Kranchick (Cut)
Drew Caylor (Cut)
2003: No Pick

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



What I see is a front office that no longers understands the NFL game as it has evolved. The draft means more to us because we just dont sign FA's. Colbert needs to go, this draft proves it. Its too bad this thread has turned into fans bashing other fans for having an opinion. Aren't we supposed to come to this board with an opinion?

I got to go with move on and live my life. Having children tends do that to a man. Especially when said children don't yet understand the draft. Plus if you're going to train your children to be a fan of the team, you've got to train them to trust the FO.

I'd like to take the wonderlic just to see what I'd get. I do know our O-line was one of the worst on this test and the Patriots O-line was one of the best.
