Default 5 days before Draft Day. Who we getting?

Make the calls now

All I'm going to say with any confidence, is we WILL GET one of the big QB's, built in the style of Big Ben.

Ryan Tannehill, Brock Osweiler, Nick Foles etc

Nick Foles is the most likely out of the 3 you mentioned, the only QB I have heard so far that we have shown interest in is Kirk Cousins as Mike Tomlin actually sat down and had dinner with him.

interestingly, none of the 30 official visits the Steelers are allowed to have with draft prospects were with a QB...

First off, what gave you that idea, the Steelers haven't shown interest in QB's. Second, it's too early to draft a QB that we hope will one day be our next franchise QB. Ben will play another 5-6 years, for example (extreme hypothetical), say we were to get Tannehill, it's likely that his career would be 40/50% over before he became our starter. I guess that's just my way of looking at it, but the Steelers showed no interest in QB's and it is possible that all 3 guys you listed will be gone by #24.

Hang on though, look what the Packers did with Aaron Rogers. He spent 3 years on the bench before moving into #1 spot.

I accept your theory about Ben going 5-6 more years. I personally think he will be lucky to get that. He is a QB that isn't scared to get hit and that will cost him 2 years of his career. I think he has 3 years left (but that's my opinion).

I'm also not syaing we will draft a QB in the first round (we need an inside linebacker, and I like that guy coming out of Boston College), but I am saying that at some point we will draft one of those

QB likely isn't even remotely on our radar in the first 4 or 5 picks, maybe even later in the draft next year. Tannehill? He'll likely be picked high in the 1st round by Miami.

Most signs right now point to D'ante Hightower as the 1st pick unless someone snags him first.

Puff, Puff, Pass Brother, this isn't going to happen, not with Ben, look more towards the 4th or 5th round.

the packers did it because they wanted to faze out favre and with favre every other minute talking retirement they had to put the next qb in place. we are a ways off of that with Ben
