He does some stuff for the Browns, but that's not why he moved back.

Higher picks cost more money!

This thread started with statements about haw the Steelers are almost inactive on draft day!
Yet we won a Super Bowl! And we are contenders year after year. Alot of the teams that make a ton of moves and pick up high $ free agents, go backwards.

The Steelers have a system, offense and defense works with the right players in our system. Not the best players in the draft.

Everyone wants to see the best player in draft in Black and Gold. But as a fellow NE Ohio resident. You should appreciate the fact the high picks dont always work, ala cleveland browns, the draft top five every year, for what? They have no system to fit into.

Hey j-dawg,
The Steelers have a very positive track record when selecting a bit earlier in round 1... obviously we dont draft early in round 1 as often as those Cleveland Clowns, but when they get a shot with a early/middle round 1 pick they rarely miss...

they get in trouble when they sit tight and take:
the fifth DB in round 1 (D. Figures)
the final WR of round 1 (T. Edwards)
the sixth OT in round 1 (J. Stephens)

I don't agree with the urgent need to move up in round one. I just don't think its worth it. I mean, if we packaged up a couple picks 3,4, maybe 5 or 6 round picks ....we would still only be able to move up what ....7-8 spots? ...that just isn't worth it to me. I would rather them draft 10 rookies and choose from them who makes the team, unless there is someone that is a lock as a starter (which that really is impossible ...ex: Ryan Leaf) ....Having three fourth round picks is AWESOME, you can find a lot of talent in that round. I would rather take my chance with getting at least one of those 4th rounders to develop into a starter than moving up a handful of spots and taking a chance on 26,27th pick.

Absolutely We build thru the draft and the players we choose arent always a consensus best player on the board but they with us...I'll take our draft track record anyday and put it up against anyone else's.
