Simpson and Bing could of been had in the third round but all 32 teams passed on them. This is why don't care for all these mock drafts going around. I will leave it to the pros to draft.

I think some of our picks actually did improve our future cap situation.

Only WR Holmes is going to get any real money, all the others are going to be signed for league minimum which is lower for the rookies than it is for 4 year veterans like Sean Morey.

Morey's league minimum salary is $540,000.

Cut Morey and put in Reid, saves us $280,000 a year for one player.

That does make sense and could be a brilliant strategy by the Steelers.
By not having to drop a ton of cash in this years draft class just puts money in the bank in for Ben and Troy when it's their time for a new deal.

I wouldn't cut Morey in favor of Reid.

Its a definately cap friendly draft so far. Even with the fact that the CBA is done and more money will be available, no sense spending ourselves silly if the guys we really want arent there. Im anxious to hear the press conference on their day 1 thoughts.

not in this draft. bus type players come along once in a generation. notice how those bus type rb's never last for mor than a few seasons, or are strictly short yardage/ goal line backs who never get more than 300-400 yds in a season? thats why the steelers paid so much for duce. the ones who have lasted are usually injury ridden or too fat to contribute for an extended period of time.

it is time for us steelerfans to admit the jb era is over and to embrace the willie parker era. personally i think willie has learned from the best and ready to expand his role as team contributor.

Out of the STeelers 22 starters on the Super Bowl Championship team 17 thye had drafted, pretty impressive if you ask me, we can trust Rooney and company.

Re: speed at wide receiver, it's been 30 years since we had a quarterback that could actually make use of a fast WR. Now we have the guy who can pitch, imagine what will happen when we have the guy who can catch.

Everything changes when training camp opens. This is like picking fruit in the grocery store; it looks great as far as squeezing it, looking at the color, no bruises, etc; but you don't know what it's going to taste like until you eat it. It's not about what it looks like in the store, it's about how it tastes, and the Steelers have shown a knack for picking fruit that tastes great.
